Priceline Hotel: 2.5* Ames Best Western Plus University Park

Booked today through the BetterBidding PRICELINE link.

I bid $45 last week on priceline for a 2.5* and was rejected. They offered me an instant rebid of $55, but I declined.

Today (one day from travel), Hotwire had a 2.5 star for $78 and a 3 star for $62. I figured the 3 star was the Gateway Hotel since there wasn't a complimentary breakfast. The 2.5 star could have been the HI Express, but hard to tell.

With that info, I bid $50 on priceline and landed the Best Western. Total was $64 with taxes. I've stayed here before and it is a good value. Was hoping for the Gateway, but at least I get a complimentary breakfast this trip.

Happy travels!
