I bid forty bucks on a 3-star hotel on priceline & got the Residence Inn. I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The rooms are all suites, I believe. My room had a big living room, couch, TV, full kitchen (stove top, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, plates, forks, etc). It had a bedroom area, vanity/sink area & separate bathroom.
The staff were very kind and friendly. There's a pool & whirlpool and exercise area. There's a free breakfast that included oatmeal, cereal, juice, fresh waffles, fruit, biscuits and gravy, etc.
The only negatives about this hotel are the sound of traffic (since it's located near Meridian Street), the smell & the seemingly paper-thin walls.
As soon as I stepped inside the front doors of the hotel, it smelled musty. That smell was all over the hotel, in the halls & elevator. Also, since there are kitchens in each room, you can smell food all the time in the hallways. But, I could live with that really.
Definitely worth forty bucks a night when it's normally $100!
One more cool thing is that the windows actually open. I've never stayed in a hotel that had windows that opened. It was warm out & really nice to be able to let some fresh air in.
I will definitely stay here again.
