  1. Express Deal amenities... Indoor or Outdoor pool Pets allowed Free internet Free Breakfast Free Parking
  2. I doubt it would be a Best Western with a kitchen. Candlewood Suites possibly? Price seems too low for the Springhill Suites.
  3. Can you help identify? No amenities listed on 1st page but got the following on the 2nd page. Would it be 2 different hotels depending on the price choice? Choose Bed: $53 per night 2 Queen Beds - Smoking Room - Full Breakfast, Mini Fridge $59 per night 1 King Bed + Sofabed - Nonsmoking Room - Full Breakfast, Kitchen
  4. Not what I was trying for... Remembered this area from last year and won the Cresthill suites. Noticed Priceline and Tripadvisor have upped the star rating on the Cresthill Suites from 2.5* to 3*. I would disagree having stayed there. Have to do work in Schenectady, tried for the Towneplace Suites or the Cresthill Suites. 1st Bid $55...got warning page price was too low and unlikley to win since average was $140. Ignored warning. Priceline rejected with a counter of adding $13 to bid again. I declined their offer and reduced my stay 1 day and increased the bid by $7 to $62. Got the Best Western. With Taxes and fees included, I saved $10 a night off Best Westerns Rack Rate. Best Western Sovereign Hotel - Albany 2½ star SUNY Albany - Thruway Area 1228 Western Avenue, Albany, NY 12203-3326
  5. Tried $42 as posted from previous member. Denied. $45 got the... Extended Stay America Westborough 180 E. Main St., Westborough, MA 01581 Glad I did not get the Red Roof Inn!
  6. $40 Rejected but if you are willing to raise your bid by $14 to $54 you can bid again right now. Declined rebid offer. Reduced my stay 1 day and rebid $48. Won the La Quinta who's rack rate was &79. Used the "Add additional nights for the same price" offer like a free bid zone to save a few bucks.
  7. FYI, this is the best Comfort Inn and Suites I have ever stayed in! Large 4 story complex fairly new. Ample room sizes with mini frig and microwave. Large comfortable beds, 50" flat screen with lots of channels. Free real Breakfast. The maid confirmed that the site does fill up during Bass Fishing tournaments. Very pleased.
  8. Working in Stevenson Al a few nights, worker recommended staying in Kimball TN. I saw a HIE 2.5* in that area on Google maps and trip advisor said it was a 2.5*. Priceline did not list a 2.5* in the Kimball area but did list a 2.5* hotel 1 mile away in the Jasper area. Tried $30, $40, $50 and $55 with free bid zone in Kimball, Mounteagle... Priceline said thanks for bidding and sent me to no bid offers twice. Anything above $55 would be to close to HIE's rack rate of $85. Tried Scottsboro Al area 2.5*. $35 rejected but if you increase your bid by $14 to $49 you can bid again. Declined offer and increased to $42 and free bid zone of Kimball Tn. Rejected. Increased bid to $45 and used free bid zone of Rainsville Al. Won the Comfort Inn & Suites. Their rack rate was $79.
  9. Yep, in my haste, I forgot to use your link...sorry. I made up for it though and used your PRICELINE link again to obtain the $45 Crown Plaza in Grand Rapids again :-). The Best Western is Ok but Old. You feel like you have stepped into the past when you walk in. I think they added just enough stuff or updated just enough stuff to barely qualify for 3*. I got a handy cap room 314. The Hwy noise outside is a bit much. I could not drowned the hwy noise out with the AC fan because it is an old system also and the AC was not working plus it was a bit hot and stuffy. I had to open the window and let in more hwy noise in to cool the room and try to sleep. The room has an old thermostat box on the wall with a thumb wheel setting that throw the switch either to heat or cool. The intake vent is in the bathroom partition wall and the exhaust vent is in the ceiling vestibule as you enter the room. You know, one of those old rooms. The bathroom sink is very small, hardly enough room for your toiletries. It also has a very small and old analog black and white TV jutting out from the mirrors. I can't say much about the area working nights but I do see a shopping complex across the way with Target, Best Buy... FYI, A major hwy leading into Detroit HWY 96 is shut down for 6 more months. Only 2 nights, I survived it.
  10. You were correct sir. The above plan did not work so I went back to Hot.wire. The 3* you mention above was the Best Western. Thank you again.
  11. Thank you. Previously Priceline would not accept $45 for 3* area 1Allen Park - Melvindale - Lincoln Park, 2 Dearborn, 3 Detroit Airport (DTW) & 7 Taylor - Southgate . I think I will switch back to your Priceline link and try 3* $50 for area 2 (Dearborn) then if needed adding area 1 Allen Park - Melvindale - Lincoln Park for $55 and using the 7% coupon code.
