I bid online for 2 1/2 star level in central region of Memphis.  Although I had viewed the typres of hotels for this level, La Quinta Inn & Suites was not listed.  I bid $65 and bid was accepted.  Problem is the hotel's location in an industrial area that was not safe.  The hotel had an iron gate around the parking lot.  There were no decent restaurants for miles.  (Outback Steakhouse was 10 miles away.)  The equipment in Fitness Center were not power on.  I was stuck in a risky area without adequate restaurant options.  Since I used Name Your Own Price, there was no way I could be advised that this is not a safe area.

Welcome to BiddingForTravel.com, 4511.

Thank you for posting your bid. What were the check-in/check-out dates for this reservation?

It's important to do your homework when using Name Your Own Price. Granted, it's trickier to do it for NYOP than for conventional bookings because you can't be sure what hotel you'll get. That's why we have hotel lists: to give you a better idea of which hotels you might receive. This hotel was on our hotel list; in fact, it's the only 2.5* hotel that's been reported in this zone. A number of airports have rough neighbourhoods nearby. Again, it's up to you to research the zone and decide if the potential savings are worth the risk of ending up in one of those areas. Also, I suspect that you overbid by a significant amount, but there's no way to be sure now.

Please start your Priceline bids/puchases from one of our Priceline links (the links in my signature, the "hotel keys" picture at the top, or the banner on the right side of the screen) if you're not already doing so.
Please place all of your Priceline bids through our Priceline link.
