  4. Hotel Amenities Resort Free parking Free Internet Beachfront hotel Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Golf nearby Tennis nearby Accessibility • Accessible for hearing impaired • Accessible path of travel • In-room accessibility • Wheelchair accessible • Accessible bathroom • Accessible parking • Roll-in shower Not so easy to cut and paste the accessibility in the browser I used. Had better luck pasting to a non-formatted notepad first.
  5. Hotel Amenities Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Accessibility Accessible for visually impaired Accessible for hearing impaired Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Wheelchair accessible Accessible bathroom Accessible parking Roll-in shower Didn't originally add accessibility because it wasn't easy to cut and paste due to formatting issues in the browser I was using.
  6. Used the Bidding.Helper. Taxes recovery charges + fees $10.71 and $20 estimated resort fee brings the total to $78.71. Was pretty sure this was it based on Hotwire hotel list checked against the Tripadvisor rating and Tripadvisor number of reviews when clicking on the listing, so the resort fee wasn't a surprise (listed as $15 on the Orlando parking and resort fees page). Amenities: Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access
  7. Thanks - used BiddingHelper and was able to guess based on Hotwire Hotel List and the combination of Tripadvisor rating and number of Tripadvisor reviews. $35.27 tax and recovery charge. Apparently no resort fee? Amenities: Resort Free parking Free Internet Beachfront hotel Smoke-free rooms Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Golf nearby Tennis nearby When I click the $145 three star St. Pete Beach area resort 85% recommended, it says "See the hotel the last person got: Plaza Beach Hotel Beachfront." How reliable is that comment from the Hotwire site?
  8. Used the BiddingHelper. Had a fair idea it would be this one, except the BetterBidding Hotwire hotel list has it listed as 3 stars instead of 2.5 (please update the list). Tax recovery charges and fees for two nights came to $32.56. The hotel has good reviews on TripAdvisor and is 100% recommended on Hotwire (it says 95% and 100%), so I'm happy. Thanks for all you do, BetterBidding crew. Hotel Amenities: Free parking Free breakfast Free Internet Pet friendly Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Self-service laundry Internet access Accessibility: Accessible bathroom Accessible parking (Also, it appears the 3* Country Inn and Suites Sanibel Gateway on the Hotwire hotel list is closed permanently, at least according to Google - might want to confirm and update that).

  10. I bid on this property expecting what I got, which happens more often than not. Because of you, I was able to check the parking fees beforehand to make sure they did not send the hotel fare out of budget. Thanks for all you do, betterbidding.com. Hotel Amenities Free Internet Indoor pool(s) Fitness center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Internet access Accessibility •Wheelchair accessible
  11. Forgot to mention there actually was a message on the Hotwire page saying something to the effect of, "Last person booked the Best Western Redondo Beach Inn" - but as thereuare has pointed out, that is just a message referring to the area and star rating and does not have any bearing on the hotel received.
  12. While listed at $52, I used the Bed Chooser option to book at $60 for two queen beds (instead of just one). Guaranteed Amenities: Pets Allowed Restaurant Fitness Center Airport Shuttle Free Internet Business Center It's made clear that: •All rooms will accommodate up to 2 people. Special requests (including preferences for smoking or non-smoking rooms) should be requested through your confirmed hotel and cannot be guaranteed by Priceline. However, I have to assume that when I'm paying more for choosing to reserve a bed option that it will be guaranteed.
  13. Hoped for Best Western Redondo Beach Inn, but got Hotel Hermosa instead. A new addition to the Hotwire hotel list? At least there's free parking and it's close to the beach. Hotel Amenities Free parking Free breakfast Free Internet Fitness center Pool(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Accessibility Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Wheelchair accessible Accessible bathroom Accessible parking
  14. I forgot to say that I used the links on this page. Thanks for all you do.
  15. Sharing Win: 3 star / Los Angeles (Long Beach) / Holiday Inn Long Beach (Downtown Area) 8/4-8/6/2014. $64/night. Booked today. I expected Best Western Plus at the Convention Center based on the lists of amenities (the Business Center threw me off), but this should still be a fine value. Hotel Amenities: Free Internet, Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Self service laundry, Internet access Accessibility: Accessible for the blind, Accessible for the deaf, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Handicapped parking, Roll-in shower
