Priceline.com - Paid More on Priceline Than Hotel Direct
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- I bid on a San Diego hotel room with name your own price which states up to 60% off room rate. The hotel room I received will cost MORE than booking the room directly from the hotel on their website. I bid $75 per night through Priceline.com. When I called the hotel, they said a room with 2 beds would be $20 per night more because I booked through Priceline for a rate of $95 per night. The hotel direct rate is $84 for both king and 2 double bed rooms. I called Priceline and they said they only guarantee a room, not bed types. I will never bid blind again. No more Priceline for me!
