I think I did okay. Sunday night I tried Priceline for a one-night stay at a 2* or 3* in CoCoa Beach or Melbourne for September 3, and I bid $55 and my bid was rejected.
Last night I tried Hotwire and made the decision to try the first price on the list that they provided from my search result. The price was $58 for a 3* in CoCoa Beach. I bought it and turns out it is the Hilton, Oceanfront at CoCoa Beach. Not bad for $58 = $12 tax. I'm pretty happy because I was really willing to do anywhere from $75-$100 with or without the help of Hotwire or Priceline.
Has anyone ever stayed at this hotel?

I have stayed at this hotel and it is very nice. The only thing I was disappointed in was they had no shuttle to the port and if I remember correctly it was about $15 to the port.
They had a nice bar and they also have a really nice buffet breakfast in the morning. We hung out by the pool all day the day we cruised and enjoyed drinks from their pool bar. They have a huge deck by the pool with lots of lounge chairs. Not to mention you are right on the beach. If you have any questions feel free to email me. You also got a great price. My cousin is a director of sales for Radisson and got this room for me at $50/night so you got it close to what they get with their discount. Enjoy!
