I don't think this hotel has come up before? Or I think it was listed as a 3* before? Gosh, I hate that when that happens. Not sure what this hotel did to raise their rating but the reviews on this hotel are very mixed so I'm a bit nervous. The picture showed the room having a laminate floor, never seen that before. I started at $60 and used free re-bids to $70. PL stated it was an 8+ rating so I was expecting the Marriott, which I know PL is a gamble, this hotel does have an overall rating just over 8. This hotel is $169 on their website.

Thank you for placing your bid through our link to Priceline. As to the rating, Priceline has been upgrading a lot of hotels over the past few months, some warranted and some not. This hotel is on the Hotel List as a 3* but I'm going to update the rating on the Hotel List right now.

Just returned and this hotel was terrible. They ended up refunding my money. How do I leave a review if there's no link on the Hotel page?

Your fears were confirmed.

Your question is specifically addressed in our Hotel FAQ. Just search for hotel review in the Hotel FAQ. Definitely post a review and I'm so glad you got a refund (from Priceline or the hotel???).

The hotel directly refunded the full amount I paid PL, including taxes and fees. I'll look for that in the Hotel FAQ.

Honestly, you might want to make a note by the hotel to avoid this area if they want to stay away from this hotel. You know it was bad if they refunded my money, which it was the worst experience I've ever had with any star hotel.

We don't put notes like that on the Hotel List. That's the purpose of posting and reading the reviews.
