Was aiming for 2.5* Best Western but got 3* Courtyard instead which is closer to the Discovery Kingdom.

First bid $57 for 2.5* Napa - Sonoma - Wine Country, CA - Vallejo - American Canyon region.  1 night

Interestingly, while the bid result page shows 3* Courtyard, the confirmation email shows hotel details as 2.5* ...

Thank you for posting your bid. Very strange about the conflicting ratings. All Courtyards, except those in New York City, are rated 3* by Priceline.

Please place your Priceline/Hotwire bids/purchases through the link in my signature or by clicking the Priceline/Hotwire banners on the right side of the screen. And please keep Priceline in mind for your conventional travel bookings as well.

Please update your email address in your Yuku profile if it's no longer current and please post all of your bids when you obtain them.

You were upgraded because you bid too high for a 2.5*. Rates in that zone are quite low tonight.

I bidded the night before so we wanted to make sure to get something at least 2.5* (Best Western) which was retailing for $80..
How much should I have bidded for 3* Courtyard?
Is there a free rebid strategy for that zone?
Thanks, and will go through link next time.

If the Priceline rate for a 3* was lower than it was for the 2.5*, then Priceline will always upgrade. As to how much to bid, I would have to know how many free re-bids you had. Free re-bidding is explained in our Hotel FAQ which everyone should read.
