One night 7/9/08. I've been bidding for about three weeks on a 3* in Pittsfield or Lenox (Berkshires). Bid is up to $125. Also, separately have bid on 2* and it is up to $80. The bids are getting close to what I can get directly through a hotel ($150 for a 3* or $110 for 2*) Anyone have any advice? Since I have two days left, should I keep bidding up? Is this area "that" expensive?

I'm not very familiar with this area but if it's in the Berkshires this (summer) is a big season for them and i would imagine many hotels are booked, have high prices, or may not be very interested in a one nite stay (if availability is limited)

HOTWIRE does have 2* hotels in each of these areas for $79-$89, and i probably wouldn't expect too much from either of them, but if you're not too picky and just need a bed to sleep would either of these work for your needs? If you're looking for something "more" then i would consider booking a lower rated hotel direct and even paying a little more for it.

HOTWIRE tends to rate hotels a little higher than PRICELINE. The two often have the same star rating for the same hotel, but when there is a difference, HOTWIRE is usually a half a star higher.

Finished my bidding on Priceline 3* at $135 and 2* at $105. Neither one of those worked. Took your suggestion and booked 2* through Hotwire for one night 7/9/08. $69 plus $15.28 tax for a total of $84.28 at the Travelodge Pittsfield. Not my first choice, but it will work out fine. Guess I'll use the $avings for gas and beer. Thanks for all the help.
