  1. This is the very same question I wanted to ask except I have three children. The first and only other time we used priceline our youngest was an infant and our other children were young so it wasn't much of a big deal to me. There were plenty of times we had all piled in one king bed at home and even in a queen once and we were able to make it work. I figured if worse came to worse we could always bring a small air mattress. Now I've got reservations for two different hotels for an upcoming trip. The first hotel is Four Points Sheraton by the Airport for Sunday July 28th-Tuesday July 30th. Our trip ended up being extended so I had to get another room and couldn't get more nights at the same hotel for a price I was willing to pay. So tonight I ended up bidding on priceline and getting the Le Bourget in Bloomington for July 30th-Aug 1st. I was thinking that whatever the bed situation might be that we would make it work. I figure the only options we'd end up with would be two doubles, one king, or one queen. Again I just planned to use a small air mattress if needed. However I got to thinking (or should I say worrying) that we just plain wouldn't be allowed to stay with that many people. I guess I could just check in with the family in the car which is what I usually do for the sake of convenience. However this just sort of feels dishonest to me. Does anyone have any advice for me? My family has been going through a very difficult time and this will be our first trip in a very long time. I used Priceline to save money so we'd have more to spend on activities for the kids. I wasn't trying to cheat anyone or anything but now I feel like maybe that's what I've done. Should I be worried that we may not be allowed to stay? My kids are now 11,6, and 4 if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance to everyone who might offer some advice. This website is amazing and very helpful for people like me who don't have tons of money these days.
  2. Hello all I'm brand new here so I hope I'm doing this right. To be honest this is only my second time using Priceline at all and my first time using the rebid tactics I just learned tonight. Using the different zones that didn't include the star you wanted was all new to me but it seemed to work out. Was hoping for a different property but got the price and area I wanted so overall I'm happy. Can't wait to bid again someday now that I (kind of) know what I'm doing!
