  1. One bid only. Used the board [url=http://www.betterbidding.com/clicks/click.php?afsrc=1&id=40]PRICELINE[/url] link to start.
  2. Didn't know Days Inn was available on priceline so I didn't check Wyndham before bidding. Could of got it $7.00 cheaper on Wyndham. My mistake.
  3. Bid 52 yesterday and they countered with add 17.00 which I turned down. Bid 55 today with counter of 14 so I took it as I was wanting to get my a room confirmed. Happy with the results.
  4. This was the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Grand Junction-Airport. I used this site and a Express Deal for $39.00. Wash't sure if I should post under win or not. Happy with the outcome. Tx
  5. The last couple of time that I've arrived to check into a motel that I won on priceline the clerk looks at my reservations and say smoking right? I don't want a smoking room and both times the clerk changed it and gave me a non smoking but both clerks said priceline was always doing this. Any insight as to why priceline would do this? Anyone else run into this?
  6. Priceline express deal shows a 3 Star Hotel in Grand Junction North East Area for $39/night for Sunday Nov. 24th and checkout on Monday. Guaranteed amenities are: Free Internet in room Indoor Swimming Pool Free Parking Restaurant Business Center Fitness Center I have a feeling this is the Grand Vista of which I have mixed emotions about but I don't know how to bid and get another one. Any thoughts?
  7. Bid $57 and was countered with $66 and I took it. Have checked in and feel I really got my moneys worth.
  8. Bid late in day so this was my only bid. Really surprise that this came up as a 2.5*. I would have probably bid a little lower had I known.
  9. I was using the name your own price feature. I bid $50 on a 3*, 47 on a 2.5* and then I bid 45 on the 2*.
  10. You were right. The hotel was Ramada Urbana/Champaign and I bid and got it for $45.00 each for two rooms. This is not the star level I started looking for but I believe it a good value for the price. After trying for a couple of weeks and getting a lot of bids turned down I believe a person needs to have a bottom price and star level from the beginning. I didn't do this and I ended up losing a couple of good prices that later disappeared. I always use your site as my starting point and thanks for your help, especially your explanation of difference of star levels between HOTWIRE and PRICELINE.
  11. Here is a 2* for $46.00 that show the following possibilities which would all be ok: Comfort Inn Best Western Ramada Inn Holiday Inn Homestead Studio Suites La Quinta Inn Guaranteed Amenities: Free Breakfast Free Internet in room Indoor Swimming Pool Pets Allowed Business Center Fitness Center Can you determine which hotel it is from this info?
  12. Trying to save a dollar may end up costing me money :( I've been bidding priceline on a regular basis, first a 3* then a 2.5*. I'm up to $47.00 and so far no luck. Hotwire had a 2.5* for $48.00 one day and I thought I could go to it latter but it disappeared. Wish I had of taken it. Got about 4 days left and hope I can get a 2.5* for not over $50.00.
  13. Premier Inn 1505 North Neil Street, Champaign, Champaign-Urbana, IL 61820 (Formerly Howard Johnson) I didn't realize they had changed the name. Would probably have the same rating?
  14. Howard Johnson appears as a 2.5* when I look at hotwire. Can you make an educated guess as to what * rating it would have on priceline? HW has a 2.5* for $48.00 which I would probably take but with HJ included I'm hesitant because of all their bad reviews. I'm thinking I will drop my PL request from a 3* to a 2.5 pretty soon.
  15. I haven't really decided yet the max I would pay for a 3 star and I will probably end up with a 2.5 star. I don't like to make the reservations so far ahead but I thought if I could sneak in a cheap 3 star then I would take it. I am hoping maybe some bonus bucks will appear before time to get serious.
  16. Duh, sorry I wasn't thinking or at least not clearly. Yes, I begin my bidding from this forum.
  17. I'm bidding on PRICELINE and it show the following guaranteed amenities. Can you determine the motel from this? Thanks. Free Parking, Free Internet, Business Center, Guest Score 7/10 or Higher My trip is for the night of September 20 and for 2 rooms. I've bid 41 dollars the last 3 bids more or less knowing I wasn't going to get it but figured I've got plenty of time and some bonus bucks might come along.
  18. Received $7.00 bonus money and bid 54 and got the room. Kind of weird as I had bid 47 earlier.
  19. Taxes and Fees: $14.98 Total Charged to Card: $69.98 Got rushed for time so I on bid the $55.00 and it was accepted. Turned our to be a great hotel.
  20. I believe this is what you want. This Hotel features the following amenities: Free Parking <amenity names only please... not descriptions> Free Breakfast <amenity names only please... not descriptions> Free Internet <amenity names only please... not descriptions> Smoke Free Rooms Guest rooms at this hotel are always smoke-free.

  21. $45.00 + 12.45 for $57.45 total I bid $53.00 dollars on a 2.5 star using priceline and they asked me to raise my bid by $16.00. Tried hotwire and got lucky.
