The only times I've encountered the "Priceline Attitude" at a front desk is at these lesser, sketchier properties which are inclined to regard ALL their guests as potential enemies / trouble anyway. (At 4* and 5* properties I've been booked into a lowly room now and then, of course, but always with courtesy.)

As others have pointed out the hotel mentioned by the OP is explicitly violating PL terms of service and can have its PL affiliation blown up as a result.
