In general, all other major hotel booking sites require that you use a credit card to make a hotel reservation. Many do not charge your card until you have completed your stay. But depending on the cancellation policies, hotels will apply a no-show charge to your credit card if you fail to turn up at the hotel.
If you do not wish to use a credit card or PayPal account for hotel bookings, then your only other option may be to contact the hotel directly. You may be able to work out some other arrangement that will satisfy the hotel's requirements.
