  3. 4820 Massachusetts Blvd, Atlanta $56.00 + $14.84 Hotwire fees = $70.84 Regular rate for that night booked with hotel would have been $74.00. Hotwire showed the regular rate much higher. I believe at about $120.00. Hate when they use peak rate comparisons. Has free parking, which most of the airport area hotels do not seem to have. Amenities: Free Parking Free Breakfast Pet Friendly Airport Shuttle Fitness Center Pool(s) Fitness Center Internet Access

  5. Best Western Plus Hotel and Conference Center 2406 N. Roan St. Johnson City, TN 37601 Amenities: Airport Shuttle, Complimentary Breakfast, Pool(s), Restaurant, Business Center 63.00 Room rate (1 night. 2 Adults, 1 Child) 14.60 Taxes and Fees 77.60 Total Room Cost The Hotwire listing showed that this hotel was a $119/night value. The regular rate on the hotel website was only $69.99. I could have done better with my AAA discount or by using a rest area coupon book. I complained to Hotwire that they misrepresented the value of the room. They refused to do anything about it, or even apologize for their error. This is the second time that Hotwire showed an inflated rate comparison on a room that I booked. I have had some great rates with Hotwire, and will continue to use them, but will no longer trust their rate comparisons. This is a new listing to the board for Johnson City. I booked the room using the HOTWIRE link at betterbidding.com
  6. $59.00 Room Rate (3 Adults, 1 Night) $13.97 Taxes and Fees $72.97 Total Amenities: Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Pool(s) Hotwire showed it as a $103/night value, but the hotel website showed a regular rate of $79, and a special rate for the night of $71.10. Total through the hotel website would have been $80.69, so we only saved $7.72. The beds were comfortable and there was a nice indoor pool area with slides, but overall the hotel was dated. I would rate it as a 2.5* rather than a 3*. There is a hotel restaurant, but no breakfast included in the room rate.
  7. Days Inn Iron Mountain 2001 So. Stephenson Iron Mountain, MI 49801 906-774-2181 $37.00 Room Rate $10.87 Taxes and Fees $47.87 Total Room Cost Very pleased with our stay. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Good location. Basic continental breakfast included. Good value. Would stay there again. Booked rooom using the PRICELINE link on betterbidding.com.
  8. Ramada Plaza Milwaukee Airport 6331 South 13Th Street Milwaukee, WI 53221 414-764-1500 $35.00 Room Rate $12.43 Taxes and Fees $47.43 Total Room Cost Had a good experience. Hotel is a little dated, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Included a free hot breakfast to order in the hotel restaurant(eggs, hashbrowns and toast). Conveniently located near the MKE airport. Was a great value. Booked room using the PRICELINE link at betterbidding.com.
  9. This AmericInn is located in Jonesborough, about 7 miles outside of Johnson City. To prevent any confusion, it may be better to change the description on the Hotwire hotel listing from "AmericInn" to "AmericInn of Jonesborough".
  10. AmericInn 376 E. Jackson Blvd. Jonesborough, TN 37659 Amenities: Smoke Free, Complimentary Breakfast, Fitness, Pool, Laundry, Hi-Speed Internet, Golf $36.00 Rate per night (3 Adults, 1 Child) 72.00 Total for 2 Nights 16.79 Tax, Recovery & Fees 88.79 Total Hotwire Charges Used the HOTWIRE link on the board to book the room.
  11. Best Western Twin Islands 539 Parkway Gatlinburg, TN 37738 Amenities: Hi-Speed Internet 2 Adults/0 Children $55.00 Room Rate $14.71 Taxes & Fees $69.71 Total Charges Regular room rate on the hotel website was $79.99. Booked the room using the HOTWIRE link on betterbidding.com Upon check-in, we were quite surprised when the hotel informed us that the charges to the HOTWIRE credit card number were denied! They were unable to contact Hotwire Customer Service to resolve the issue. They had a room for us, but we had to pay for it and request a refund from Hotwire for the original charges. The hotel gave us a good deal on the room...at a rate lower than the Hotwire rate. I sent an email to Hotwire requesting a refund. They responded quickly with an apology for the inconvenience, and a credit to my charge card. They also applied $25 in "hot Dollars" to my Hotwire account. No explanation was given as to why their credit card number was denied. I have used Hotwire many times before without any problems. I assume it was some kind of glitch, and will continue to use HOTWIRE in the future.
  12. Description in the title for this post and on the Priceline hotel list should be changed to "Green Bay" instead of "Greenbay".
  13. AaronJB...you're awesome! Thanks for the great information!
  14. Ambassador East Hotel 1301 North State Parkway Chicago, IL 60610 $90.00 Bid Price $21.56 Taxes and Fees $111.56 Total Charges Booked this hotel for my son, who will be staying one night in Chicago with a friend. They are both college students, so I felt that the NMA-River North zone was best for them. Tried bidding on 4* and 3.5* hotels up to $100 without success. Bid of $87 for a 3* was rejected. Upped it to $90 and it was accepted. TripAdvisor has it listed as a 3.5* hotel. Regular rate for this hotel on their website is $219/night. This is a Monday night, so they would like to find somewhere to have Chicago-style pizza and watch the Monday night football game. Any suggestions? Also, any suggestions for parking to avoid the higher hotel parking charges? Is it safe to walk the streets at night? Booked this hotel using the PRICELINE link on the board. Thank you!
