Thumbs up Deal of the Day

I needed to start looking for a hotel in ST Thomas for Feb 14, 2015 just for an overnight stay. I didn't want to spend too much, I had my eye on Best Western Carbi Resort. I looked last week and it was something like $134.00, fast forward to today and looked again and it was $25.00 ? What this can't be right!
I had put in one room for three adults and this was the price, when I put in two adults it went back up to the $134.00 as it was before. I quickly booked it and got my conformation number. I then decided to call BW to see if they showed my resservation with the same dates and price....sure enough they did!
The lady at BW was shocked by the price but said even if it was a clich that this will indeed be my price.
It's had mixed reviews on Trip Advisor and Expedia but for one night it will work just fine. The other gals were able to book their rooms for two nights for the same great price .

Now on too air fare!

Default Deal of the Day

Robin, I thought I got a good deal for the Millenium Hotel in Minneapolis in September. Their basic rate is $220, but I got the room for $106. But that's still not as god a deal as you got!

It's got to be a mistake but from everything I read they have to honor it. I know BW is a franchise so their individualy owned so I'm a little nervous I must admit.
The women assured me it's what I will okay so time will tell.

Wow, fantastic! I really doubt that they will challenge it when you arrive. I wonder if the $25 is actually the additional charge for the third person in the room.

I actually called the resort and all is good , the gal said its a system error and we will have no trouble when we get there.
Grand total $32.00 for the three of us, everyone in our party got the same deal.
