I would most definitely find a way to politely decline and look for another option.

Bellenga has suggested betterbidding.com and biddingfortravel.com on other threads and I have been looking at these sites. I’m amazed at the deals you can get. They teach you about bidding on priceline and keep a list of hotels you’ll get whebidding for certain areas. Take a look at options within driving distance for you.

Yay laylabelle that’s what I’m doing this weekend! It was the first thing I thought of when I read your post.

Good luck with this whole deal. And seriously, what kinds of friends are those?!!?

Yeah…Fiance and I are totally looking forward to long days enjoying the mountain air, snuggly nights in front of the fire, reading, playing some games (we are total Phase 10 and Uno addicts! Yeah, we’re dorks!) “quality time” in the hot tub on the deck with a glass of wine or a cold beer…I can’t wait!!!!

what do they have to be hurt about? they are dictating where you can go, the type of place you can stay and neither works well with you or your budget so i dont see why they should feel hurt

men…. sorry but really, they dont think sometimes do they – dont stress about it, with you telling him telling them stuff happens

To me it sounds like they were going to a timeshare thing and they get “bonus points” if they bring another couple.  So you were the other couple.  That certainly isn’t the anywhere/any price they first mentioned.  They should only be hurt if they told you up front what it was, you said yes, then you said no.  I would try to go one of the places the bees suggested, and just be honest with your friends. good luck!
