  1. A quite interesting bid process.   Started $52 with Memphis East yesterday (Mon) and gave me a one-time offer at $63 (declined) while Express deal from the same area was $77. I didn't get anything up to $67. I wondered why the one-time offer was lower than the Express deal, then I found out that another Express deal was at $66, but for Memphis Southeast.   After bidding on PL for so many years, I decided to try again a day later while I still have enough time until my planned check-in date   Today the Express deal is at $61 for the same area. Start from $52 and won at $56.   Check-in:Sat, Oct 24, 2015 - After 03:00 PM Check-out:Sun, Oct 25, 2015 - 12:00 PM Address: 939 Ridge Lake Boulevard, Memphis , TN Phone number: 901-684-6664 Number of rooms:1 room   Room subtotal: $56.00 Taxes & fees: $14.58 Total charged today: $70.58   Don't give up and keep coming back at a different date are what I have learnt from taking advantages of PL re-bidding system.  
  2. Start bidding from $50 by $2 increment, was given a chance to get a room at $66 by the system, of course ignored it. Then got this one at $58. Will be the 4th time to stay at this hotel, no complain at all.   Country Inn & Suites By Carlson Sunnyvale 1300 Chesapeake Terrace Sunnyvale, CA 94089   Room Cost per room night $58.00 /per room night Nights 2 Taxes and Fees $24.48 Total Charges $140.48
  3. pl Express deals quoted the same area and star level for $78.   Bid from $50 by $5 increment, and got this one for $65 with free WIFI. I was happy about it because it is a much better hotel for its price and star level around the area. Stayed here several times, and always succeed to get double bedrooms. Highly recommend!   Courtyard By Marriott San Jose Cupertino 10605 N Wolfe Road Cupertino, CA 95014
  4. Express deals quoted the same area and star level for $70   Bid from $50 by $2 increment, and got this one for $60 with free breakfast and WIFI. The hotel claimed a lot of groups staying there that day and so no double bedrooms available. Anyway I never succeed to request one at the premise regardless of dates, but not a deal breaker.   Country Inn & Suites By Carlson Sunnyvale 1300 Chesapeake Terrace Sunnyvale, CA 94089
  5. Start bid at $33 for Mountain View $35 for Cupertino $38 for Sunnyvale $40 for Palo Alto $42 for Santa Clara (accepted) Extended Stay America - San Jose - Santa Clara 2 star Santa Clara 2131 Gold Street, Alviso, CA 95002 Check-In: Tue, Dec 24, 2013 / After 03:00 PM Check-Out: Wed, Dec 25, 2013 / 11:00 AM Rooms: 1 room / 1 night Offer Price: avg. per room, per night $42.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $42.00 Taxes & Fees: $12.67 Total Charged to Card: $54.67 I also tried 3 star for Sunnyvale ($49) and Santa Clara ($53), but no go. What I got this time is not too shabby.
  6. Plan to visit Monterrey during the weekends of various car events, but the cheapest hotel rooms are at least $150 per night over there. Instead, staying in San Jose and drive to the destination. Accepted on 1st bid @ $50 Country Inn & Suites By Carlson Sunnyvale 1300 Chesapeake Terrace, Sunnyvale, CA 94089 Check-In: Fri, Aug 16, 2013 / After 03:00 PM Check-Out: Sun, Aug 18, 2013 / 12:00 PM Rooms: 1 room / 2 nights Offer Price: avg. per room, per night $50.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 2 Room Subtotal: $100.00 Taxes & Fees: $22.16 Total Charged to Card: $122.16 Not too shabby and save some money for gas and food too.
  7. This time will come to South Bay with my family. Very clean and nice decor, and love this hotel a lot. Also very convenient with a lot of restaurant choices. 1st bid at $49: rejected, and the system offered $63. 2nd bid at $53: rejected, 3rd bid at $57: accepted. The Domain Hotel-A Joie De Vivre Hotel 1085 East El Camino Real Sunnyvale, CA 94087 Offer Price: avg. per room, per night $57.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $57.00 Taxes & Fees: $15.20 Total Charged to Card: $72.20
  8. Will be going for a ski trip to Lake Tahoe but stay at Reno for better fun and entertainment Rejected at $58 and counter offer at $71 Rebid at $65 and accepted Best Western Plus Airport Plaza Hotel 1981 Terminal Way Reno, NV 89502 Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $65.00 (USD) Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Guests Per Room: 2 Number of Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $65.00 (USD) Taxes and Fees: $16.55 (USD) Total Charged to Card: $81.55 (USD) Not too bad to be shared the cost with other 3 friends!
  9. 1st bid at $48: rejected, and the system suggested $58. 2nd bid at $50: accepted The Domain Hotel-A Joie De Vivre Hotel 1085 East El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA 94087 | 408-247-0800 Offer Price: avg. per room, per night: $50.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $50.00 Taxes & Fees: $14.27 Total Charged to Card: $64.27
  10. Start bidding at 3.5* with $70, with $5 increments. And accepted at $80. A resort property comes with a resort fee ($15). Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel And Spa 1 Old Golf Course Road Monterey, CA 93940 Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $80.00 (USD) Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Guests Per Room: 2 Number of Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $80.00 (USD) Taxes and Fees: $17.41 (USD) Total Room Cost: $97.41 (USD)
  11. Initially try 4* with many rebid zones, and I didn't get anything up to $100. Then I tried 3* with my bet at $65, rejected and the system offered me $73, took the bait. It is not very desirable to bid on 3* here, not much rebid zones for 3* within San Jose. I really like this property, free wifi, near to some shopping plazas/centers and Asian restaurants Courtyard By Marriott San Jose Cupertino 10605 N Wolfe Road Cupertino, CA 95014 Room Cost (avg. per room, per night): $73.00 (USD) Number of Rooms: 1 Number of Guests Per Room: 2 Number of Nights: 1 Room Subtotal: $73.00 (USD) Taxes and Fees: $17.76 (USD) Total Room Cost: $90.76 (USD)
  12. Used the PRICELINE link Moving to CA from Midwest, need a stop-by hotel in Nebraska. I'm now in the hotel room, very nice bed, free wifi and breakfast. Perhaps it is quite pricey compared to other hotel properties, not that many guests living here. So far a nice price in a small town ($55 versus normal online sites around $109 per night) after long-hour driving. I'll probably review my other hotels at Salt Lake City (UT) and Reno (NV) during my moving. Fairfield Inn & Suites North Platte 2
  13. Used the PRICELINE link I'm on my move to CA, and stop at Reno for one night. Since there is no rebid option for 3* in Reno, I just try a higher $55. Reno South - Airport (RNO) 1790 East Plumb Lane Reno, Nevada 89502 Amenities: Remote control TV w/ premium channels Radio Alarm Clock Business services Telephone w/ voicemail Iron and ironing board Hairdryer 24 hour front desk On-site Dining Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $55.00 Subtotal: $55.00 Taxes & Fees: $14.95 Total Charges*: $69.95
  14. I used PRICELINE link. $45: no $47: no $50: no $53: yes I'm on my way moving to California, with a car load of stuffs, and I'm looking for a nice hotel with better security. This one looks promising!

  15. Haha, it is me again. This booking is for my 2-day trip in Portland after attending a weekend wedding. 1st bid $55 rejected, and then scored this one at $60 (waited for a day), instead of my previous winning at Courtyard Marriott.
