We accessed Priceline through the BFT Link.
We needed a hotel room for one Sunday night near the Michigan International Speedway (MIS), for some crew members on a two day film shoot.
The MIS is located in the small town of Brooklyn, Michigan, which is approximately 30 miles south of Jackson, Michigan, and 30 miles North of Adrian, Michigan.
The 2.0 Star Super 8 Brooklyn hotel is the only Priceline hotel in Brooklyn. It does have a Priceline Customer Rating of 8.2 out of 10 ("Very Good"). The hotel has free Breakfast, free Parking, and free WiFi.
The Priceline Retail rate for Sunday night was $79.99. There was a 2.0 Star Express Deal for $56.00 (obviously the Super 8 Brooklyn).
I also had a Priceline 48 hour coupon good for 10% off of an Express Deal, which brought the room price before fees and taxes to $50.40.
There was an even more attractive Express Deal for the 2.5 Star Hampton Inn Jackson for $51.00 per night. Priceline had a sale on that hotel, which retails for $109, for $52 for our night ($45.90 with our Coupon). That hotel has a Priceline Customer 8.5 out of 10 "Excellent" rating, and offers free Breakfast, Parking and WiFi.
However, that hotel would be a 30 minute drive each way to MIS.
The Super 8 Brooklyn is only 3 miles from MIS, which would permit the crew members to get an extra 30 minutes of sleep before starting work again early Monday morning.
