  1. Not a bad place for $32.00. Regular rate of $60. Hotel Amenities Free parking Free breakfast Free Internet Pet friendly Fitness center Business center Self-service laundry Internet access Haven't posted in a while. Hope this helps.
  2. The lowest car rental price on Kayak was low $100's for no-name car rentals (unknown to me). A couple of weeks ago, Hotwire had $50 rates, but they went up to $68 all-in. My old rule of thumb was to bid 10% less on PRICELINE than what HOTWIRE was offering. Since I have plenty of time, I bid 30% less. Hotwire was $16.95 per day for a $68.70 3 day total. My winning bid booked via the PRICELINE link on BB: $12. 00 per day or $50.56 all in. My rental is with Avis. FYI, non-bid PRICELINE did have the lowest rates for Avis at $27 per day or $99 all in.
  3. My first bid was 2 days ago in the Albany Thruway area for $42.00. Priceline said it would accept a bid of $55. I declined. After reading here, and not wanting a dump for $45 with my re-bid to include the ALB airport, I bid $49 and was accepted at the Cresthill Suites.
  4. Got this on the first try. Free breakfast + indoor pool + free wi-fi.
  5. Holiday Inn Rochester Airport Northwest Rochester - Rochester Airport 911 Brooks Avenue, Rochester, NY 14624 Hotwire was $48. Priceline $39.00 Hotwire showed a 'fake' high price of $121. Offer Price: avg. per room, per night $39.00 Rooms: 1 Nights: 1 + Add nights for the same rate! Room Subtotal: $39.00 Taxes & Fees: $13.77 Total Charged to Card: $52.77
  6. Car rental prices at DFW are very high because of taxes. A 2 day rental non-PRICELINE was running a minimum of $150. Last week, HOTWIRE was still showing expensive prices. Earlier today, HOTWIRE was showing $34.95 per day + taxes for a total of $111. I tried $29 on PRICELINE for an Economy car and my bid was accepted. That was $6 less per day! Your Offer Price: $29.00 (per day) Total Rental Days: 2 days Subtotal: $58.00 Taxes and Fees: $39.73 Total Charges: $97.73 It's still expensive, but not outrageous.
  7. After bidding on P/L up to $90 for 4* and getting rejected, I checked the Hotwire rates. 3* on Hotwire was showing $68. After some reasearch, I figured I would get a good hotel for a 'boys weekend' at Camden Yards. My last P/L bid at 3* was denied at $64. They said if I bid $77, the room was mine. Gee thanks! Hotwire guaranteed the $68, so this was a no-brainer.
