  1. Resort, Free parking, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby, Spa services $291 a night but after taxes and resort fee it comes to $390 a night all in.
  2. Was looking for 3+ stars in Glendale or Brown Deer areas. This was the best price point for these days of travel...other HOTWIRE hotels were around 100-110, Expe.dia bookings were not much more, and I had no time to play the Price.line bidding game. Came to 90/night all in after taxes. (Expedia was $110 for the same property, not sure if that included taxes.) Full amenities list: Free Parking Free Internet Indoor pool(s) Smoke Free Rooms Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Self service laundry Internet access Accessibility Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking Roll-in shower Used the HOTWIRE links and hotel lists, thanks Betterbidding!

  7. Needed a cheap, clean room for one night upon arrival in Kona. $81 for a 2* which gave us the Kona Seaside. It has decent reviews and should fit the bill just fine. Used HOTWIRE link.

  9. Oceanfront Laundry Facilities (self service) Pool(s) Golf Nearby Restaurant(s) No 2.5* hotel was offered in my search results, and no 2* hotel was listed in your Hawaii Hotwire list. So that made me a little confused. But I took a chance that this was the Castle Hilo Hawaiian and had been downgraded, or that after booking I'd be given the 2.5 anyway. But it was Hilo Seaside, a 2* but not on the HW hotel list. A little disappointed b/c the same hotel is on Priceline list where I'd expect a cheaper result, and I had the time to bid. Oh well, so it goes. Mostly looking for close and clean, and this will fit the bill. Used HOTWIRE link.
  10. Best retail rate I found before bidding was $288 (after taxes and fees, Thrifty or Dollar) Got same results on Orbitz, Expedia, Hotwire, and Entertainment Coupon book with discounts. Started Priceline bidding at $14 ($210 after taxes and fees). Denied. Raised by $1 per day, until 5th day I was at $18/ day ($249 w/ t&f). Then was offered transparent PRICELINE link for a Thrifty fullsize rental at $214 after taxes and fees. That price was about halfway between the total costs on my earlier $14/d and 15/d offers. Took it. Strange they didn't accept my higher offer on the table, but happy with the result. Used the PRICELINE link.
