Missing Dollar Puzzle

Three men go to a hotel. The desk clerk gives them a room for $ 30, so each one pays $ 10 and they occupy the room. Later, the desk clerk realizes the room had a off-season discount of $ 5 and should cost only $ 25, so he sends the bellboy to the three guys room with $ 5. On the way, the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split $ 5 evenly between three men, so he gives each one $ 1 and keeps the other $ 2 for himself.

This meant that each man paid $ 9 for the room, which is a total of $ 27. And the bellboy kept $ 2, so the total becomes $ 29. Then where is the other dollar?
