Really wanted the Eagle zone for incoming relatives, but there are only two hotels in that zone and I had unsuccessfully bid up to $75 the past few days. So based on a $59 Express Deal for 3* in the Boise Downtown zone, I bid $50 and got accepted at the Springhill Suites Parkcenter. For 2 nights with taxes and fees the total was $120.12. Best rate I could find for this hotel was the senior discount rate (which could have applied for my guests) at $110/night.
I needed one more room for more relatives so I started my second bid at $45, which was rejected with a counteroffer of $56, so I just added Eagle as a 2nd zone (knowing full well there was no way I'd get it) and got my second room at $50 again. For me it was not worth worrying about the bottom of the barrel somewhere between $46 and $49.
I used the Priceline referral link on both bids.
