  1. I would like to share my wins, but it's been seldom since I've used the site. I don't do anything on social media to give you an idea of how much I post at all. I've posted twice in 8 years and it hasn't been helpful, but I thought I would try again this time. Looking at my Priceline history, I've booked once almost 4 years ago and once since for a funeral. I didn't have the time to share the latter. I've never been successful at Hotwire and have never book, only searched. I was hoping to get help here to actually book something. The last post for Cayman didn't get me anything from Priceline or Hotwire either. I booked direct by a referral to Sunset House and another through a friend discount at the Marriott. I used to be more successful through Priceline at Monterey hotels around 10 years ago before looking into this sight. I had hoped this site would help me with other locations, but hasn't proven to so far. I was bidding last night through your PRICELINE link and checked on your HOTWIRE link. I do not see any advantages to this site so far, but do wish it could be helpful to me as we have upcoming travels. Any useful information would be helpful.
  2. I think I found the Seaside hotel on Hotwire with these amenities. I'm not as familiar with Hotwire, but did use the Easy View button. Free Internet, Pet friendly, Boutique hotel, Near beach, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business center, Internet access, Golf nearby Please this hotel or an available 3.5 or 4 star hotel in the area,
  3. I see two hotels available on PRICELINE EXPRESS, one in Monterey and the other in Seaside. Both list the same short list of amenities. Can you help me determine which hotels these might be. I do not want the Best Western Plus if I can avoid it. Pets Allowed Restaurant Indoor or Outdoor Pool No Smoking Rooms/Facilities Any help you can provide to find a hotel in the area for 2 rooms under $230 each for one night would be much appreciated.
  4. My understanding from this reply was that the BiddingHelper.com does not actually place a bid. However, when trying it, I got a reply from Priceline indicating that I did put in a bid. Luckily, I didn't get it accepted as I was throwing together a quick try. I'm not sure I had incorrect information, but I was completely unaware that it would actually make a bid for me.
  5. I made the search for 2 rooms, one with 2A and 2C and the other with 2A and 1C. We have now confirmed our travel dates and have purchased our airfare. Our stay will be 6/8-6/15 for one room and 6/7-6/15 for the second room.
  6. I started a new search to get more updated information here. Can you help me ID these? 4 Star All-inclusive, Cabo Corridor 6/8-6/15 $231 Free Parking Food and Beverages Included Fitness Center Pool(s) In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking All-Inclusive 4 Star, Cabo East 6/8-6/15 $166/night Resort Free Parking Beachfront Property Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center High-Speed Internet Access Golf Nearby Tennis Nearby Kitchenette Spa Services Children's Activity Program 4.5 Star, Cabo East 6/8-6/15 $190/night Resort Free Parking Beachfront Property Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center Laundry Facilities (self-service) Tennis Nearby Spa Services Thank you for all the help. I'll try the BiddingHelper.com, too.
  7. So, BiddingHelper.com doesn't actually book PRICELINE, correct? I didn't proceed because I wasn't sure. The star rating and the dates are the same as my subject: 4.5 Star, Cabo San Lucas Area, 6/8-6/14. Thank you
  8. Does BiddingHelper.com actually book it for you? I'm not sure I understand how it can make the comparison if once you push the button you've bought it. I took a look and saw that it looked like the PRICELINE page while keeping to the BiddingHelper URL. Would you be please help me ID this property for the same stay in the Cabo East area?

  9. I won't mind posting my wins when I can. I'm not very familiar with this site yet and it's workings. I signed up 4 years ago on a recommendation from a friend. I would like to know what benefit there is to all by using the links. I'm assuming they may get credited to your account for tracking purposes? If so, please send me a link which I will use in place of coming here first or using the standard website. Coming here first may not be convenient as I use different devices all the time (i.e. someone's cell phone or hotel computer). I always tend to put 2 adults as it doesn't seem to matter to the hotels, but I can see how it would matter to an all-inclusive. I do not see adult-exclusive on the list of amenities, but now that you've helped ID the property, I do see that on the property. I will do some more hunting on Cabo here and come up with another option. Thank you for your help.
  10. I have already clicked on these. Would you be able to help me with the ID? Thank you.
  11. Can you help me identify this property? My dates are 6/8 to 6/14 +/- a day if needed. This is my first post so I hope I have posted the information here correctly. I have a few additional questions I would appreciate the help on: It states all-inclusive as well as free breakfast. The food would seem to be included for lunch and dinner as well. I just wasn't sure why they might have listed free breakfast. Any thoughts? Premium brand beverages are included. Does this truly mean alcohol (i.e. beer, wine, margaritas)? In places where I know the brands of hotels, I've used Priceline because I'm not as concerned which one I get. With Hotwire, I still won't know what I'll get, but do you feel it's a little safer since all of the amenities are listed? It will be important to our trip to Cabo since we want kid's clubs or activities and some of the nicer amenities. 4.5-star All-inclusive hotel in Cabo San Lucas This All-inclusive hotel features the following amenities: Resort Free Parking Free Breakfast Beachfront Property Food and Beverages Included Premium Brand Beverages Included A la Carte Dining Options Daily Activities Included Fitness Center Pool(s) Restaurant(s) Business Center High-Speed Internet Access Tennis Nearby Spa Services Accessible path of travel In-room accessibility Accessible bathroom Handicapped parking Roll-in shower All-Inclusive Thank you for your help.
