    I looked under map and details and it doesn't give the keywords only the text underneath. Has priceline changed or am I still missing something?

    Question on a Priceline deal I saw:

    Express deal for "MainGate West" area (the area around 192 just west of World Drive) ... a THREE star hotel for only $34 night on a a Saturday night near end of March.

    That seems to good to be true? What sort of "3-star" hotels are in that area and why would one of them be willing to sell a night for cheaper than you can find most roach motels?

    I don't know the 3-star hotels in that area, but doesn't seem like it would be many:

    What makes a hotel 3-stars in the Orlando area? I am used to a 3-star hotel being like a Courtyard Marriot or something like that and seems "to good to be true" to be able to get a 3-star hotel.

    At that price .. you'd figure it would be one VERY specific hotel. Any idea which that may be? There seems to be 16 "3-star" hotels in the Maingate West area according to Priceline.

    It may be the Red Lion hotel on 192. I consider it a hidden gem. It's in that area, and it's a 3 star hotel. The hotel may not be much to look at, but the rooms were recently renovated and are very well appointed. Keurigs in each room, comfortable beds, etc... If it's that hotel, this is a great deal. We have stayed there about 5 times over the years (when on a budget and not wanting to stay on property), and we've always been pleased. You can't get much closer to being onsite!

    Thanks. After looking, that seems it may be the case. I am not too picky as long as the hotel isn't "seedy" or a "roach motel" .. which seems unlikely if it is categorized as 3 stars.

    I may go for it since I am just looking for 1-night stay before going on property -- but if the quality and price of these hotels are pretty decent, I may reconsider staying onsite for the next trip.

    What should I look for if I want to find an Express Deal for Swan or Dolphin?

    Make sure you're looking in the Bonnet Creek area. 4 Stars on Hotwire, though on Priceline it looks like they classify Dolphin as 4-stars and Swan as 4.5 stars (not sure if this carries over to blind booking). Resort fee of $34 (might say $33 but it rounds up to $34). A give away for Dolphin is the double beds; all other 4-star hotels in this area will be at least queens.

    The closest in terms of amenities are Wyndham Grand and Hilton, so looking at resort fees will help. Wyndham Grand has a $36 resort fee, and the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek has a whopping $45 resort fee.
