  1. I agree. My only other question is when you go on Hotwire to book the room choosing 2 adults and 2 children, the $117 price says it will accommodate the number of guests you put down but then for $130 it guarantees you two double beds. How else would they accommodate 4 people? Seems like I would be safe with the $117 for 4 people without paying the extra. Does that make sense?
  2. Thinking it would be better to just put the correct number of people and pay the higher price. I am a rules follower! I was just amazed that there was such a big price difference. I would bid on Priceline, but feel I would end up with the other 4-star hotel which would totally defeat our party plans as the other 4-Star hotel does not have all of the activities and lazy river. This is more of a hotel you want to stay at the enjoy the amenities. The other one (Hilton) would probably be best choice if you were staying in the area and planning on shuttling over to SeaWorld every day.
  3. They do have a shuttle to SeaWorld. You have to have a reservation to get past the security gate. Check-in is 4:00 pm and check-out is 11:00 am. However, they said you can arrive at 10 am and they will store your luggage until the room is ready so you can take advantage of the all-day activities. The same thing when checking out, you can check-out and they will store luggage until you leave so you can actually enjoy two days of the resort when only staying one night. They did away with the wristbands so as long as you are on premises you can participate in activities so if you end up with 5 people in a room, all 5 can use facilities. They have a lazy river, small waterslide, movies and popcorn on the lawn at night, some complimentary and some additional expense activities (like making sock monkeys), hiking trails and bikes you can reserve to ride bikes on trails, golf course. They also provide the makings for smore's each evening.
  4. We want the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort. We are flexible with staying either the night of May 30 or May 31, but only one night. Yes, we can make two double beds work as it will most likely be 1 adult and 3 kids. If the fourth kid ends up coming (doubtful), we can use a blow up mattress or squeeze in. Thanks. And I will book through your site!
  5. We are traveling and only spending one night on either May 30 or May 31. I had called the hotel directly to inquire about how many wristbands were allowed per room. They do not use wristbands any more so there is no limit. At the time I was planning on bidding on Priceline and I know they usually book king bedrooms so was inquiring as to possibility of switching to two beds. They said they usually could do that for an extra $20. Several years ago we stayed at this hotel but there were only two of us so one bed was not an issue. I won that bid at $70, but it was the only 4-star in the bidding area. Then I discovered that Priceline now has two 4-star hotels in the San Antonio SeaWorld area and the other hotel is not the one we wanted to stay in. I figured if I bid on that one that I would most likely end up at the wrong hotel so I decided to check Hotwire. I am pretty sure the one with the resort fee is the one we want to stay at. I was hoping to keep the total hotel, taxes and resort fees under $150 as I will have to be providing 3 meals a day for 2 days (6 total) for my daughter and 3 friends.
  6. I have been watching a resort in San Antonio by SeaWorld. The price has been consistently $117 for our date. I have been putting in 2 adults and 2 children. It may actually end up being 1 adult and 4 children. I noticed later that the rate dropped to $87 ($30 less). I had snapped a screenshot when trying to figure out why it was so low, and then 10 minutes later it jumped back up to $117. I realized I had not changed occupants so the lower price was for only 2 adults. Do they really check that when you check in or can I safely accept the offer for only 2 adults and show up with 4 or 5 people! i am planning a party for my teenager so still not sure who will actually come.
