How To: Find Cheap Hotels Near Me or Anywhere

Ever needed a hotel in your area quick and tried to search “cheap hotels near me” to no avail?  With Spring Break season already here and summer season just around the corner, you may soon be in search of a hotel.  Unfortunately, so is everyone else.  Luckily for you, websites like Priceline let you negotiate your price to help you find cheap hotels near me (yourself) or really anywhere.


Find Cheap Hotels using Priceline:


How it Works:

Priceline advertises the “name your own price” feature which allows hotel-goers to enter bids on their site.  To place a bid you must enter search criteria first.  What location you would like to stay in, how many stars you are looking for  go into the search.  The catch is, when placing a bid, you will not be able to see which hotels fit your criteria.  Your bids can either be rejected or accepted, if rejected you must wait 24 hours before entering a new bid unless you change your criteria.

Getting Additional Free Re-bids:

Waiting 24 hours in between searches can be less than ideal when looking for hotels.  Especially if you are looking to travel soon.  Luckily there is a life hack that allows you to immediately rebid on the same area. As mentioned before you have to bid on both a star rating and an area.  If you bid unsuccessfully, say on a 5-star hotel in search area #1, you can change your criteria.  Let’s say you change it to to a 5-star hotel in search area #2.  As long as there are no 5-star hotels in search area #2 Priceline will automatically put the bid back in for the original search area.  Utilizing this “re-bid” life hack is one easy way to speed up your search.  This will help you find a cheap hotel near me (yourself) much faster.

Research Prior to Bidding:

This is one way to find cheap hotels near me(yourself) but you have to be willing to stay at a range of different places.  This is where doing your research or using tools like will come in handy.  Bidding For Travel website is a little outdated but many of their forums are still maintained regularly. They have information about which hotels in your area are accepting bids (and at what prices) and may give you the competitive edge in your search.  So make sure to do your research before bidding.

Book a Backup:

As mentioned in the video you will want to make sure to book a backup if you are going to try to wait last minute to get deals on hotels.  When booking a backup make sure it has a full refund policy.  That way if you are successful bidding and re-bidding on Priceline you won’t be stuck paying for two hotels.

That pretty much sums it up.  Priceline can be a great tool for those looking for a stay-cation and cheap hotels near me(yourself) or really anywhere.  Although, it does help to have a little background knowledge on the area, so make sure to research.  If you have any additional resources or life hacks make sure to leave a comment!
