What's priceline express? Is it different from priceline.com?
It's a lower cost function on the priceline website where you buy a motel room without knowing the exact motel until after purchase. You do know cost, rating, class, and location within a couple miles. Nonrefundable! Won't be acceptable for many folks, but if traveling solo or pairs can be good value.What's priceline express?

Last year was the "happy time" motel-wise. I think a large portion (90%?) of the motels did major update and remodeling during the down time of the pandemic!Then last summer, out of dire necessity -- bike race! -- we very reluctantly checked into a Motel 6. It was managed (owned?) by a vibrant young couple and the place was so spotless and shiny it almost required indoor sunglasses.
I was once about to book the cheapest place I could find in New York when bed bugs sprang to mind, so I thought I'd best see if there were reviews for the place.I don’t bother much with online reviews.
