  1. Looks like an updated La Quinta property, in good shape with great TripAdvisor ratings. Saved an extra $15 thanks to the HOTWIRE link on this site -- thanks! Here are the listed amenities: Free parking, Free breakfast, Free Internet, Pet friendly, Airport shuttle, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access
  2. $68 / night x 2 = $136.00 Tried bidding on PRICELINE, but no love for me. :-( Looks like a decent property and decent location, anyway. Amenities listed: Free parking Free breakfast Free Internet Pool(s) Self-service laundry Internet access
  3. No luck bidding, so I went with a PRICELINE EXPRESS Deal. Looks like their best posted rate is currently $79, so no great savings this time, but every $$ counts! Amenities listed were: Pets allowed Free parking Business center Airport shuttle Indoor or Outdoor pool Free internet Free breakfast Fitness center Non smoking
  4. After failed bids up to $65/night, I picked up 2 nights at $77 as a Priceline Express Deal. Looks like a nice, fairly new property. Rate posted on their website is $129/night, although quite a bit lower through other travel websites. Amenities: WiFi available in all areas Heated pool Business Center Pets Allowed Non-smoking Rooms Parking Remote control television Complimentary continental breakfast
  5. There were actually a couple of free rebid zones in the area, so incremented bids by $5 until this one landed at $60. I saw a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal that might have been this property listed at $63. Is it just me, or is PRICELINE EXPRESS getting closer to successful bid prices more every day? Looks like a nice little hotel, with free breakfast! Of course, started bidding using PRICELINE links!
  6. $81/night x 2 = $162 plus tax and fees. I think I saw something about other hotel fees around Rapid City, so maybe some unwelcome fees coming... Amenities: Free breakfast Free parking Free internet Pet friendly Airport shuttle Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business center Self-service laundry Accessible path of travel
  7. Looks like a newer La Quinta property, from the photos anyway... :-) Free breakfast Free parking Free internet Pet friendly Pool(s) Business center Self-service laundry Accessible bathroom Accessible parking
  8. Very pleasantly surprised by the condition and service at this La Quinta location! From the outside it doesn't look like much -- standard motel appearance with lots of paint to hide the buildings' age and a little rust here and there on the stairways. However, they're doing everything right, where it counts. New, fluffy towels; fresh new sheets and blankets; clean, updated rooms and decor; and attentive staff. As an example, we picked up a pair of extra towels from the front desk to bring our total to 5. The maid service noticed the difference and we arrived in the evening to find 5 fresh towels plus 5 wash cloths, each with its own bar of soap and shampoo. Free breakfast was not elaborate, but well stocked and covered all the basics in a clean dining area that was well managed, even on Saturday. Solid bargain here, at the current Hotwire rate, anyhow! Also, add to the "amenities" list: -- Accessible parking -- Accessible room
  9. Free parking Free breakfast Free Internet Pet friendly Pool(s) Business center Self-service laundry Internet access After reading mixed reviews on Tripadvisor I'm a little apprehensive about this location. I guess we'll see... Normal rate on a room here is currently about $84, so not a bad price.
  10. Bidding 3* and using rebid zones, landed this one at $48. Best posted rate I see for this hotel is $79, so about 40% off. No free breakfast, but aside from that the place looks decent. As always, started bidding using PRICELINE link above!
  11. Bidding 2.5* and including several zones around Austin, increased bids slowly and this one landed at $100. It seems the "South by Southwest Music Fest" this weekend in Austin has hotel prices going crazy! I'm not sure what it usually goes for, but the currently listed best rate for this hotel that night is $209, so a great savings. I'm pretty sure this same hotel was listed as a Priceline Express Deal at $107. It may have been worth saving the bidding hassle for the $7 difference. It seems likes more hotels that have inventory listed for bidding are also making them available as Express Deals for just a little more $$, or is it just my imagination...?? As always, followed PRICELINE link to start my bidding!
  12. Amenities listed: Free parkingFree breakfastFree internetNear beachSmoke-free roomsPool(s)Business centerSelf-service laundryInternet accessHotwire was showing 80% recommended. Looks like their posted rates are currently $160 - $189. I've seldom had much luck with Priceline bidding on/near Galveston, so this will do fine. Looks like property is right next door to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Waterpark.
  13. Bidding 2* in this zone only, increasing bids by $3, hit this one at $49/night for 3 nights. Doesn't look like the nicest property, from the reviews. Hope it's decent! Free breakfast, anyway. Started bids with PRICELINE link.
  14. Bidding 2.5*, but scored this 3* at $51. Even with the daily parking garage fee, a nice score compared to the hotel's (somewhat overpriced) nightly rate of $130. Maybe I've just been spoiled by Priceline - LOL! Very decent property, with a cool surf shop and huge aquarium in the lobby! As always, bids started with PRICELINE link above.
