I am not a complainer, but felt I needed to follow-up for the benefit of future Priceline users.
This Extended Stay American location is not a 2-1/2* quality; our room was not even a 2*. As I showed above, the amenities promised including "non-smoking rooms and facilities." We were given a smoking room, and when we asked for a non-smoking were told that since we booked through Priceline, we had to take what they gave us and they could not move us. It smelled pretty bad. In addition, the TV did not work, the outlets in the bathroom did not work, there were NO cups provided even in the bathroom, and at 2:00 am, the refrigerator in the kitchenette defrosted and leaked water over most of the floor. We were up mopping it up with the two tiny towels provided. We did tell the desk clerk the next morning, and she was very nice but did not seem surprised by our list of problems. She reiterated that as Priceline customers, we had to take whatever they gave us.
This was such an opposite experience to last week's Priceline Express experience, I had forgotten that sometimes it just doesn't work well. San Diego is a tough city to get a "deal" in, unfortunately we are there frequently to visit our kids.
Thanks again for the BetterBidding service, and here's to better luck next trip!
