Newbie (1/14)

  1. I went to the Bidding Helper under Hotwire Research and was looking for a 2.5 star Downtown Chattanooga hotel and saw one for $63. The HotelReveal Guess said that it was the Chattanooga Choo Choo, which was great since that's where I was hoping to stay. However, farther down the list, they had a 3-star Downtown Chattanooga hotel for $91 and the Guess said it was ALSO the Chattanooga Choo Choo. So which is it? So since I've used this site before usually with reliable results, I bought the 2.5 star offer for $63 from 3/11 to 3/13. Well, guess what? I did not get the Chattanooga Choo Choo. I got the Kinley Chattanooga, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel. I know it's a risk we take being a mystery hotel but I was pretty bummed that I didn't get the Choo Choo. To add insult to injury, there was also a $10 Hotwire coupon that wasn't listed above the Hotel Search on the Bidding Helper page that I could have used had I known.
  2. Priceline Express had a 2.5 hotel in Navarre for $92 that I was interested in. Betterbidding's hotel list showed that I would either get the Day's Inn or Bestwestern Waterfront. This morning Priceline sent me an invitation only, 48 hr. extra discount for a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal so that pushed me over and I decided to go for it. I was so scared I would get the Days Inn. Another reason I went for it is because PL's amenities listed a fitness center and I knew the Days Inn didn't have one. So I decided to take my chances and thankfully, I scored the Hampton Inn & Suites instead (which you can now add to the hotel list for Navarre). Here are the amenities: Free Internet Free Parking Free Breakfast Bed Choice Business Center Fitness Center Non Smoking Swimming Pool I would add that I did not get a bed choice. After they revealed what hotel I got, the itinerary details stated that my room would be assigned upon check-in. Not a deal breaker but just wanted to point that out. The total with the coupon ended up being $401.16.
  3. Woohoo, score! I will be staying at the Springhill Suites by Marriott in Alexandria by Old Town from May 20 - 27. I started off bidding at $52 and kept going up in increments of $2 until I got to $60. I chose Alexandria East first, then Crystal City, then Arlington, then the White House, then Georgetown/Foggy Bottom. That was actually going to be my last bid for the night and I got it on my last bid. I accessed PRICELINE through this site and got the EXACT hotel I wanted thanks to Better Bidding. Cannot believe my luck! This is for a full week, too. Here are the top amenities: Free High Speed Internet Indoor Pool Fitness Center Business Center Non-smoking Rooms Free parking Complimentary buffet breakfast Free Shuttle
  4. Sorry for the delay. I ended up not going the Hotwire or Priceline route and booked a condo thru the owner. Thank you again for your help!
  5. Hi, I'm considering bidding on the Priceline Express RT airfare rate of $228 from BHM to DCA. Of course it's opaque and so are the departure and arrival times.

  6. Hi, I Need help identifying 2.5 star in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. Here are the amenities from Hotwire Easy View: FULL AMENITIES: Free parking, Free breakfast, Smoke-free rooms, Pool(s), Business center, Wheelchair accessible $69/night. 2.5 star. I plan on checking in 7/7/2016. Thanks.
  7. PRICELINE EXPRESS showed these amenities before my purchase: Galleria Area Rated 7.0 out of 10 (or higher) Indoor or Outdoor Pool Pets Allowed Free Parking Free Internet Free Breakfast Save 48% or more* $36 per night Bed choice available
  8. Okay, not too shabby. I decided to go for the $36 PRICELINE EXPRESS deal for a 2-star in the Galleria area and got the Extended Stay America - Atlanta - Marietta - Interstate N. Pkwy. The thing I liked about it is they gave you a bed choice and I chose the 2 Double Beds - Nonsmoking Deluxe Studio. This Studio Features A Fully Equipped Kitchen, Work Desk, Dining Area, A/C, Hairdryer, Iron, Radio, Refrigerator, Free Toiletries, Flat-Screen TV, Sofa, Kitchenware, Tea/Coffee Maker, Shower, Bath, Telephone, Microwave, Dishwasher, Bathroom, Heating, Toaster, Alarm Clock, Stovetop. They also have complimentary breakfast, outdoor pool, free parking and free wifi. I also think I got a pretty good deal since I was able to snag this for the Fourth of July weekend. Now you can add this property to your Galleria PRICELINE EXPRESS list. ;)
  9. Woohoo! You guessed right! I got the 2-star Vacation Lodge for $46/night for July 4 through July 8 (four nights) in Pigeon Forge South/Dollywood area hotel. These are the full amenities listed on their website: Free deluxe continental breakfast Free parking Heated outdoor pool Convenient location Trolley stop in front of our building 93 spacious rooms and mini-suites All of our Pigeon Forge guest rooms feature: Microwave Refrigerator Coffeemaker High-speed wireless Internet
  10. I wouldn't mind that one. I'll let you know for sure this coming Friday. Crossing my fingers it's a good one! :)

  12. Hotwire lists a supersaver 2-star hotel for $48 (first one on their list) on their website yet I don't see it listed here. The lowest star rating I see here for the Pigeon Forge/Dollywood zone is a 2.5 star. Do you know what hotel this is? Here's the listing: <link removed> Thanks.
