A little disappointed given the reviews I've heard of this place, but at least it's cheap and I only need a place to sleep one night. Priceline has been nice if I've needed to call the day I get there and it's absolutely horrible, so we'll see.

Booked today, 6/7/08.
Hotwire had 2*@$49 [probably this hotel], 2.5*@$68, 3.5*@159 [before taxes]
S = Springfield (downtown)
SS = South Springfield
min = At which point the web site said that anything below that price had a small chance of being accepted.

History:
S min = 3@46, 2.5@47, 2@33
SS min = 2.5@49, 2@49
3* = s@46, +ss@56, ++@66
2.5* = s@47, +ss@57
2* = ss@39 WON [should have tried for 33?]

I noticed a lot of hotels were already sold out, so that's why I never got an acceptance. Looks like South Springfield has a lot of the nicer hotels, especially since it's a small area. I looked at a map on Streets and Trips 2008 and there were only 5 properties there [for future reference: Courtyard, Sleep Inn, Fairfield Inn, Comfort Inn, Hampton Inn and Suites]. I would recommend sticking to South Springfield if bidding to 2* or below .

Moderators:
Given that Southeast Springfield appears to no longer be a separate area for Priceline, can you update the list of hotels? It looks like Southeast is now apart of the downtown area, and South is a new separate area.

BTW, this hotel wasn't as bad for me as others have described, it was definitely old and cheap, but the people were nice and overall it was a decent place. I would probably consider it a 1* considering the run down shape, but I guess since it has the radio alarm clock, it gets the 2* upgrade as far as Priceline is concerned.
