Priceline Hotel: 2.5* Ames Fairfield Inn and Suites Ames

Booked today through the BetterBidding PRICELINE link.

I bid $48 and $50 last week on priceline for a 2.5* and was rejected. Today (one day from start of travel), Hotwire had a 3 star for $65 and a 2 star for $57. I figured the 3 star was the Gateway Hotel since there wasn't a complimentary breakfast.

With that info, I bid $55 for a 3 star on priceline and was rejected. Lowered it to 2.5 star and raised bid to $57 and landed the Fairfield. Total was $72 with taxes. I've never stayed here before, but it looks very nice...one of the nicer hotels in the Ames area.

Again, I travel to Ames often and use Hotwire and Priceline each time. Intersting note, Priceline currently does not show any 3 star hotels in Ames and the Gateway does not appear at all in their listing. I'm wondering if you can only get the Gateway's discount rate through Hotwire now.

Happy travels!
