Does anyone know the winning price for 2.5* to 3.5* hotel in Galveston? I tried to search for any recent bid but have not yet found one. So far I tried $90 for 3.5* with no success. The dates are June 13 to 19. Thank you for your inputs.

Rates do vary by date so what may work for one set of dates will quite possibly not work for another. Unfortunately, there have been few wins reported for this area. What would be your desired max bid per night?

I've also heard that in resort areas, it can be helpful to break your bid up into more than one part if it's for longer than a few nights. You may want to look at local published rates weekday vs weekend and decide if you can accept the risk of having to move hotels partway thru your stay if it turns out that rates or availability are quite different over the 6 nights you want to stay there.

You might win 3 or 4 weeknights at a decent rate, but have to pay more for the two weekend nights, and a standard 6 night bid doesn't allow for that variability in pricing on the published side. I took a quick look (I'm planning a shorter trip to Galveston in May, so I'm directly curious) and many properties have big rate jumps on the Friday night and Sat night of your intended stay. I think Galveston tends to have a big regional weekend car-trip draw (or there may be a festival or other event that weekend?).

Anyway, I'm just basing that on Priceline strategies I've read, I've never bid a stay anywhere longer than 3 nights personally...

Good luck!
