How does rebiding affects amenities?

I bid for a 3 star hotel in certain area and priceline guarantees I am getting at least a 7+ hotel with pool. I review my bid before it's final and is says "Amenities: Indoor or Outdoor Pool, Guest Score 7/10 or Higher".  My bid is not accepted, I get the "add zone and rebid" screen, where it says: Please note: The amenities previously displayed for the area(s) and star you selected are not guaranteed for other areas and stars." So I add a free rebiding zone or go down one star and review my new bid before is final, but there is nothing saying I am getting a 7+ and pool (even if the new area I selected also guaranteed 7+ originally).  So what I usually do is just get back to the main screen, and star over so I get the gurantees amenities, but it seems as a waste of time. 

So, if I add a fee rebid zone and rebidwithout going back to the main page, is there a chance I get a hotel with lower quality or no pool??

The message you got is just a general message and not specific to your bid. Adding a free re-bid zone makes no difference in your bid. Remember, you are just re-submitting your original bid at a higher amount. A free re-bid zone is just a dummy way to increase your original bid.
