Their website is misleading. I was mislead into accepting a counter offer, which was not good at all. A lot of hotel chain have their own website, you can get discount, points for future stay and know exactly which hotel before you book and you avoid the risk of getting a queen rather than two double bed. Being a family of 4 - 5, I will book from hotel's own website
I love how easy it has been to save so money with Priceline.com. Whether I use the phone app or website, its easy to save. I visit New York 6-10 times a year and I always look at Priceline.com when comparing prices. I love to read the reviews from the travelers. They are not like reviews from other websites. The star ratings seem truer to form and I can really count on them to give me the latest news on the hotels. I have used the Name Your Own price and the Express Deals and both are easy to understand and use. I can research, read, book and pay all on one website. I was even able to add on a hotel night while taking the bus one afternoon via the phone application, it was that easy, and saved 30% within minutes! Give it a try, it's awesome.
Seriously, priceline has saved me a fortune. The Name Your Own Price feature might be my favorite travel tool ever. I've only ever used it for hotels, as I'm usually needing specific times for flights, but it's REALLY great! With a little research beforehand, you can pretty much narrow your hotels down to a few, and as long as you're about 3*, you should have no problem. I usually travel by myself, but the few times this last year I've traveled with friends, I've called the hotels I've won immediately to change from a 1 bed to a double, and I've had no issues. I will continue to use this site for every vacation!
Excellent website. I was searching on kayak and it brought me here where I found an even better deal. Paid for the hotel even got free cancellation and then printed out my itinerary. Had no problems at all when I got to the hotel just checked in and enjoyed my vacation!
I have used Priceline since it started, and as the website has grown it has continued to have a very user-friendly feel that is very warm and never scary or intimidating. Whether its the corney Shatner pictures or the down home comments, the website remains my all-time favorite travel site. My Mom is 90 and she uses it, while my teen daughter and college-age son use it as well. They truly have mastered the friendly travel experience. A +++++
We booked a premium suite and the drink machine and snack machine's were complementary our teenage grandkids loved that almost as much as the pool. They also loved watching the jets takeoff and land from our balcony. The atrium was large enough to accommodate all the guests for breakfast. This was a great stay. Thanks from North Carolina.
Priceline is my go to websites for booking flights and hotels. They have a great selection of hotels, which makes booking with then really easy. I love that you can search by neighbourhood and star rating; it helps give customers an idea of what they are bidding on.
I have used priceline for many years and sometimes when I can't make up my mind with so many hotel options and prices (since it happends very often) I just go to "Name your own price" select the area I want and the stars and let them surprise me!!!
Advise...do your research on hotels before booking. Priceline posts pics of the hotels and you can also check out reviews. WE NEVER travel booking a hotel without using Priceline and we always are amazed at the savings and the hotel choices it offers. Something for all budgets. Narrow your search by Star or Price. we have bid for and gotten amazing deals but usually use the Express Deals. So easy and convenient...I just don't understand why everyone doesn't do it!
