The Inn at Pasatiemp is currently rated 3 stars by PRICELINE... so are you looking to only bid this for a 4* or did you want to also try this price at the 3.5* and/or 3* level too?

 

I will add that HOTWIRE has what appears to be the 4* Chaminade Resort and Spa for $182/nite which would be higher rated than the one above for just a bit more... should this one be of interest.

 

Please remember to return to BetterBidding and use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases... or thru our sister site MAPSandHOTELS.com for your regular rate purchases.

 

Let us know how you'd like to proceed and we'll take it from there.

When bidding 4* in Santa Cruz you have THREE re-bid zones... at the 3.5* level you have TWO re-bid zones.  If you're not familiar with re-bidding please read Priceline Re-Bidding Explained and feel free to ask questions and/or confirm your re-bid zones with the board before proceeding.

(NOTE: 're-bid zone1 is not the same as priceline's Zone1, 're-bid zone2' is not the same as priceline's Zone2, etc, etc)

 

If you first want to try at the 4* level you could try:

Select 4* Santa Cruz...

Bid $125, if rejected add re-bid zone1...

Bid $140, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE...

Yes, you got it... but always double check your re-bid zones before bidding to make sure that nothing has changed since you last checked.

 

Feel free to confirm your 3.5* bids as well if you'd like.

OK, just did this on your links.

 

Select 4* Santa Cruz...

Bid $125, if rejected add Aptos 

Bid $140, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE.

 

And both were rejected. I saw that my total amounts were getting to be at about $200, which is more than I want to spend. So, I'll start on the 3.5* bid.

 

Just to confirm:

 

Select 3.5* Santa Cruz...

Bid $125, if rejected add Aptos.

Bid $140, if rejected close browser and use this link to re-access PRICELINE...

 

Select 3.5* Santa Cruz and Watsonville.

Bid $140, if rejected add Aptos..

Bid $150, if rejected wait 2 hours and try again, once again using the following link to re-access PRICELINE
