    Not fantastic, but $69 for 4* Rosen center 1 night in Sept, and then $119 for Dolphin.

    That is great if the Dolphin is showing up again. I'm going to check it out on BFT.

    I got Wingate near the airport for $49 for our last night before returning home. It looks like a nice hotel. Regular rate is $109. :cool1:

    Congrats to you ky32hm :thumbsup2

    I got also Wingate by the airport on Hotwire last night for $59. I guess it depends on what dates you put in which determines your rate.

    I asked a couple of questions about the HW process and certain resorts but got no responses on Betterbidding.com. It's an informative board, but not the best or quickest for getting responses. At least in my experience. So I had a strong feeling when I was bidding that I would get Wingate from the description on HW.
    The only reason I didn't go with Priceline was because betterbidding said they don't have to guarantee 2 beds in the room. HW will match the number of people in your party to the number of beds and it's guaranteed.

    I wasn't aware that HW matched the beds to the number of people but it's good to know for future reference. I did call after I booked and put in a request for 2 beds in both rooms. You're probably right about certain nights. Mine is for a Monday night stay.

    Just a note,

    I have used priceline many times, making sure that I was ok with all of the hotels listed under my desired star rating. The last time I used Priceline, I got a hotel that wasn't even listed on the website. So be careful, I was stuck with this awful hotel.

    As I mentioned in my previous post about getting stuck with a hotel that wasn't listed (it was the Sandestin Golf resort in Destin). We bid 120, and got the Sandestin, which wouldn't be bad if we were on the beachside, but we were on the bayside and it was horrible. I wouldn't recommend doing Priceline in Destin just in case you get the Sandestin. Check the reviews on travel websites.
    HOpe this helps.

    write to priceline and tell them how unhappy you were.

    if enough people do it - they downgrade the resort.

    Watch out for FunSpot Fountainview (used to be the Ramada Eastgate). This place is a real dump. The room smelled bad, beds so uncomfortable, bad layout of rooms, hard to find from elevator, elevator felt like it would break down any minute, horrible shuttle service once or twice in morning and once at night. I don't think the shuttle even goes to the Hollywood Studios. We won this bid for 1 night for $33. It was supposed to be a 2.5 hotel. It was very Sqeevy. No coffee machine in room but they want you to pay $1.50 for a cup from their machine in the lobby!! Also, the sign is hard to see from the road. Avoid like the plague!!

    Today I won the Ramada Celebration for $36 for 7/25 before we check into DVC. This used to be the Orlando Hyatt, and it's a group of 4 2-story buildings just outside WDW on 192. I have stayed there once and attended several conferences. I will be interested to report back on how it is now. For $36 (and only $49 on the Ramada website) it's quite a bargain.

    I just used Priceline for the first time to get a room for this Saturday night. I wanted something in the WDW area, but wasn't really picky so I decided to give it a try. I got the Sheraton Safari (3*) for 49/nt. It has mixed reviews but I am happy.

    We have also decided to leave a day earlier than planned (yea!!!), and are planning on staying in a hotel at the halfway point for us which is Savannah, Ga. I tried bidding on PL 3 times, but all were rejected. I figure we will be better off just getting one of those travel coupon books at the rest area and just picking a hotel off I-95 somewhere.

    My husband uses Priceline to get this hotels for work. He's never had a problem. We've never used it for a vacation so I'm a little nervous about trying it. We are looking to stay at a 3 star in the Universal area for 2 nights prior to going to Disney.

    Any thoughts on those resorts?

    Has anyone bid on this star level and area that can tell me a little more?

    Does anyone know what happens if you get a terrible hotel? Can anything be done or are you stuck staying there?

    The reason I asked is that once I booked a resort at St. Simons Island and it had roaches. I don't want to get stuck in a situation like that.

    Thanks for any feedback or advice you have. It is greatly appreciated!
