  1. It appeared that Hotwire had the same property at a higher rate [as usual] so booked via PE using the 5% off code as PE offered a bed choice and Priceline wouldn't. On the technical side, 1 room went thru ok, the 2nd never was in the hotel's system despite a confirmation number etc. Took a number of calls between Priceline and hotel to resolve. PE listed as rated 9 out of 10, amenities: Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  2. Was listed with PRICELINE EXPRESS for $124, due to 5% off BetterBidding coupon underbid by $10 and got it. Very nice property, good discount Rating 9 out of 10: Business Center Non Smoking Pets Allowed Restaurant Swimming Pool
  3. Tried bidding 75 at Priceline but was rejected. Didn't make any sense to go higher with 5% off coupon for PE. Not much savings after fees vs direct booking with AAA or senior discount. Rated 8 our of 10: Pets Allowed Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Free Breakfast Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center
  4. Incredible difficult completing this booking - don't know what the issue was but it took 7 tries before it actually confirmed, previously just saying "Error." Hotwire "customer service" makes a mockery of that title - they are absolutely worthless and won't do anything to assist even once you've run the gauntlet to actually get a person on the phone without having a completed reservation. Property is great, and was expected as the only one that could fit the description - savings aren't anywhere near what are claimed as when booking direct it's probably $60 more/night. Like most resorts these days, the fees/taxes are staggering and I think all these sites should include them instead of just displaying the base rate. Here's the amenities: Free InternetFree parking Amenities Business centerFitness centerPet friendlyPool(s)Restaurant(s)Smoke-free rooms
  5. Saw 4* on PRICELINE EXPRESS for $131. Bid $135 for 4.5* - rejected - rebid $121 including 4* and got it.
  6. There are 2 Holiday Inns listed as OKC Airport - this is the north location 4401 Southwest 15th, Oklahoma City, OK Originally bid $65 for 3.5*, then lowered bid to $55 to include 3* [PE had it at $59]. Keep in mind their shuttle [unlike most others] doesn't start until 5am in case you have an early flight. 4401 Southwest 15th, Oklahoma City, OK Top Amenities Free Internet In Room Indoor Pool Fitness Center Business Center Restaurant Non-smoking Rooms Free parking Airport Shuttle (Free)
  7. Originally bid $70 for 3.5* at PL, rejected, added 3* reject, added Salem-Beverly for $72, reject, went back to PRICELINE EXPRESS and got what I knew would be Holiday Inn Peabody - regular king room $79 [minus 5% bb PRICELINE EXPRESS link] $89 for kitchenette, $96 for King Suite. Total was $432 including fees vs $503 prepaid direct - so not a big savings. Rating 7 out of 10 Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  8. PRICELINE EXPRESS had it for $68 - hotel is undergoing renovations, but still a good deal: Rating 7 out of 10: Pets Allowed Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities .
  9. Good price for the property/location. Once clicked thru, it indicated last person got this property so confidence was high. Total $93.11 including "resort fee" Free breakfast, Free Internet, Smoke-free rooms, Business center, Internet access
  10. Saw PE had it for $54, bid $50 and got it: Free Parking Business Center Airport Shuttle Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  11. PRICELINE EXPRESS had it for $64, so I bid $59 and got it. Amenities: Free Parking Business Center Restaurant Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
  12. PRICELINE EXPRESS listed it as $189, bid $181 and accepted at Priceline. Showed 8 out of 10 rating. Will add amenities later. Lowest price listed at other sites $431
  13. Ammenities: Free parking, Free Internet, Boutique hotel, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Spa services 9.5 rating out of 10. Base rate was $113, king guarantee took it to 133, when in fact the hotel charges the same for 2 queens as 1 king. Hotel direct was $179, but with lower fees of course. If the hotel hadn't been predicted, and almost guaranteed by spa services & tripadvisor reviews, it wouldn't have been much of a deal as there are other offers direct.
  14. Since HOTWIRE charges more fees than PRICELINE, it helped to use the $25 off coupon: Amenities Airport shuttleBusiness centerFitness centerGolf nearbyInternet accessPet friendlyPool(s)Restaurant(s)Smoke-free rooms
  15. Was listed in PE at $93 with 7 out of 10 rating: Pets Allowed Free Parking Restaurant Airport Shuttle Free Internet Indoor or Outdoor Pool Fitness Center No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Bid $88 at Priceline, rejected, came back saying I could rebid for $102 [why would I when PE was at 93??] - rebid at $90 by adding Tempe North [knowing all their 3.5* were a lot more], and got it.
