    I visited Barbara's Castaway Club Website and saw that she used Priceline and Hotwire to get fantastic rates at MCO hotels.
    Has anyone used these services - or something else, to get good rates for Coco Beach hotels.

    We are coming from the West Coast, and I am thinking of coming in two nights before. The first night we would get there late, and then just spend the next day on the beach or at the pool. Then the next day we would get up and go to the ship!

    I have never used priceline or Hotwire - so I am a little scared! :(

    Any advice out there?

    Hi this is Shirley from The Perfect Gift - if you will email me at snelsonbrown@aol.com with date of arrival, how many will be staying at the motel, and for how long - I can and will check for you for the best price - after all I am right here - no problem.
    Glad to help
    Always
    Shirley

    I just recently got the Holiday Inn in Cocoa Beach (2 1/2 *) from Priceline for $40.00.

    Typical hotels booked via Priceline or Hotwire are the Hilton and the Doubletree.

    Sounds like good prices but.......did I understand correctly (read elsewhere) that with these bookings you cannot be guaranteed a room with 2 beds vs. a room with just one king bed? For a group of more than 2 persons this could be a real problem. Just wondering if this is the case and if/how often this is a problem for people. Should it deter people from using this service if their group cannot be accomodated with 1 king bed? :rolleyes:

    No wonder everyone raves about you Shirley, you are awesome!

    It actually is going to be a while before we go (early 2004) - but I am the ultimate planner - so I just have to get details!

    I will definately contact you as it gets closer.

    Thanks to everyone else for the info too!

    We are taking my parents and in-laws, so hoping to save money wherever we can!

    I would also be curious about the King Bed thing, because there will be three of us.
