Using an expired Egyptian ID (betaqa) at hotels?

Hello/Salaam to all,
Can I use an expired Egyptian ID (Betaqa) at hotels and tourist sites for the cheaper/Egyptian rate? Just some background info. I was born in Cairo to two Egyptians but moved to the States when I was a baby.  I'm currently in Egypt for a 2 weeks and would like to book a Luxor/Aswan trip. My father was pretty good about renewing my Egyptian IDs but passed away a while back and, as a result, my Egyptian ID card expired. The only thing I have is a photocopy of my expired ID card. My US passport also states that I was born in Egypt, but I'm not sure how much that would help.

Any help would be most appreciated!
