What is the best(cheapest) way to get a room?

Here's my situation....I booked a room online through Lodging.com which my wife said was supposedly the cheapest way to get a room.

We get to the hotel & check-in...we had a nice weekend stay & when we checked out they ran our credit card for incidentals & such...

We got the bill today & both Lodging.com & the hotel had charged us for the stay...no problem getting it straightened out, but Lodging.com charged us $185 while the hotel only billed us $155. I would like the Lodging.com bill taken off but they say that it's the hotel which screwed up therefore the $155 will be refunded back to the credit card while the higher $185 charge stays on the bill. I asked Lodging.com why they were charging me more since "supposedly" they were the cheapest route to go? They told me I couldn't have gotten the room at the hotel for that cheap. I explained that the hotel only charged me $155, but they said I couldn't have gotten that rate off the street. I argued for at least 30 minutes without getting resolved. The hotel has now called & told me they are taking off their charge for $155, which I knew they would do, but I still think the $185 charge should come off not the $155.

Does any of this make sense? I think I'm getting the shaft on this deal, but no one seems to understand why I think that....should I be upset & what would you guys do?

You can't get that rate off the street. The hotel sends lodging.com a $30 check for the referral. They screwed up and charged you, thereby tipping you off.

Yep.

All those sites always seem $5 - $30 higher than if you check prices on the hotel, air, or car rental website or call directly.

I challenge you to prove that. I've tried to get over on that system. It doesn't work.

Does your friend know of a web site that can find noisy hotels for cheap?

I just booked a 18 day trip in 4 different cities and used 3 different websites. You have to spend some time to look around the net for the best deal. You will save alot of money using your time to surf the best deals.

I use:
Expedia.com
Hotwire.com
Travelocity.com

But I also check the "official" sites of the hotels. I've got better deals there before.

What is it about cum anyways? It comes from a sterile environment. You all have it. It doesn't taste like anything.

YOU PEOPLE PLAY WITH ASSHOLES. Suck face with gingivitis. Marinate in yeast infections.

But boy cum, icky. Girl drenches carpet, story for reddit.

On weekends larger hotels often save large blocks of rooms for weddings or similar events. It always pay to bluff when you call and say you're coming into town for a wedding and were told they have rooms at a discount. The people getting married are too busy taking care of the reception hall, limo, flowers, church, etc., they'll never check the hotel list to see who's staying and who's not.

I've only used Priceline a couple of times, but with great success.
I've stayed at both the Hyatt Regency and Hotel Phillips for $55/night, plus tax and small service fee.
The Hotel Phillips stay was for the minicamp a couple of weeks ago and the total came to $73/night. It's a four star hotel in the financial district and I would guess the cost is normally much higher.

On the advice of a fellow planeteer, I tried Priceline for a room in KC Sept 30 through Oct 3. I bid $50 for a four star in Country Club Plaza or Downtown/Crown Center. They made you check two areas among quite a few. $50 was rejected. You have to wait 72 hours after your bid is rejected. After 72 hours I bid $55 dollars. It was rejected, but they said if you raise it $15 to $70 your bid will be accepted. I figured what the hell. I got two rooms for $70 each for 3 nights at the Westin Crown Center. I think I got a good deal, but we will see.
