Priceline Hotel: Monterey in the Summer

I spent a lot of time trying to book a room last night for the week of August 28- Sept 5, 2004. The bottom line is you can't get a 1* for $50 anywhere. I tried all of Montery areas plus Salinas plus Watsonville and even Freedom.

I also bid $60 for 2.5* in the same areas without success.

I know the summer is their peak season, but after Labor Day I assumed prices would ease. I was wrong. Looking at Orbitz, etc, even the Dot-Head dives of Seaside are over $100. The Motel 6 in Marina is $55 and goes to $75 on the weekend!

I do think I found the best deal: The Red Roof Inn in Watsonville is 28 miles from Monterey and was $45 and $54 on the weekend.

Besides, It's close to Santa Cruz which is more interesting to me than Monterey. I used to live in Monterey and pretty as it is, it's a bit boring.
