  5. I, too, contacted PRICELINE last weekend after winning Paradise Point as a 4* and becoming concerned about all the negative reviews and lower ratings by AAA, Mobil, and Expedia. I told Priceline I either wanted re-assignment to another 4* or my money back so I could start another, lower bid for a 3*. Several e-mails and phone conversations later, the day I was flying to San Diego, Priceline e-mailed and told me I could get a complete refund. Since I was arriving so late, I decided to check in anyway and hope for the best. When I informed Paradise Point's night manager of my concerns, he told me Priceline had already contacted the hotel on my behalf - and that he was confident I'd be happy with my room (a one-category upgrade from the standard lanai patio assigned to Priceline bookings). Bottom line: Aside from a musty smell and older bathtub (mentioned by many reviewers) it was just fine - particularly for $97 a night. And I'm impressed with PRICELINE's responsiveness. Goes to show that being proactive can pay off!
  6. I wanted a 4* in Downtown San Diego - started bidding yesterday at $95 and went up to $145 by adding free redbid zones...no luck. Came back today (using BetterBidding's PRICELINE link) and tried $90 San Diego Coastal - Priceline counteroffered with $22 and I bid $97 - was accepted for Paradise Point. Is it really as bad as it looks on TripAdvisor?
  7. :) I wish I'd read this before I bid today. Tried yesterday for a 4* downtown San Diego for 4/28-5/2, starting at $95 and going up to $145 with free redbids...no luck. (There's a major convention in town, I found out later.) Tried 24 hours later on a new bid, $90 for a 4* Coastal. Priceline came back with a counteroffer of $22....I bid $97 and got Paradise Point. I guess I should have gone for a 3* Downtown...
  8. After seeing other successful bids for 4* MTE for under $150 during early February, I started at $120 (using savingsbarn.com link), adding additional zones in two bids on two successive days. Finally hit yesterday for $170 - Grand Hyatt's rate for those nights was $399, $399 and $229.
