What we bid for is not what we received. We bid for a hotel room on Goat Island in Newport Rhode Island for my wife's birthday getaway in late December 2010.
Our bid was $80 per night for 3 nights. What we received was a small cramped room in the Newport Beach Hotel And Suites in Middletown, RI. The retail room rate was only $47 per night. We requested a room change.
The second room was no different than the first one. We were very unsatisfied with the accommodations. We were ripped off by Priceline.com.
We will never use them again. There are a lot of other choices with better service.
Monetary Loss: $99.
