Priceline.com Complaint - Misleading!! - hotel booking
I had no idea what I was getting into when I booked w/ Priceline, you place a bid and are totally at their mercy to find you a hotel - you have absolutely no say in what you get and once you bid you are locked in, no exceptions! And we did not save anywhere near 50% on our hotel we saved less than 10% by going through Priceline and the hotel they picked was in an inconvenient location (We went to the beach). It was Bay side, not Ocean side so we had to walk across a main highway every time we wanted to go to the beach. It was miles from the boardwalk which meant we had to drive everywhere and finding parking was expensive and inconvenient, the hotel had no balcony and overlooked the parking lot and a hardware store, all of which we had no choice in because again, you place that bid, you are locked in to whatever hotel they pick for you, no if's and's or but's! What a mistake, never use the bidding service through Priceline, they absolutely lie about the 50% savings and you have no say in what hotel you get.
