On some local search results prices show up (for accommodation in particular). Would like to know where do we add prices to our Google business listing to achieve this?

 

Answer: Here is Google's official help article on Hotel amenities: https://support.google.com/business/answer/6215588?hl=en

 
I also know this guide gives some tips on how to get listed: http://www.buuteeq.com/blog/a-hotels-guide-to-google-hotel-finder/

I can't find anything in the above post regarding adding prices to you hotel but I'm pretty sure you have to buy ads to do it.

First link looks like general google information and the other one is dead.

I am pretty sure people are still looking for this answer as I was, so I thought I would offer up the info I have discovered chatting with google via phone.  Google claims there is no way, even through google advertising, to add pricing to your listing.  They claim it happens 'organically' as their web crawler searches the internet, finding pricing on it's own.  When I pointed out that the only listings I see on google maps with pricing are the large hotel chains, who have buckets of money to spend on SEO(search engine optimization), the lady on the phone read off a series of mashed together buzzwords about how everything happens by magic, and that google has no knowledge that only large SEO'd businesses have their pricing showing(which just happens also to be hugely expensive in comparison with local offerings).

 

In short, google claims pricing happens organically, but knows that only the large hotel chains(who also happen to be paying the via Google advertising) actually get those prices to appear.  Google is happy to snuff out small business competition if it means padding their wallets, anything they tell you to justify it is just silly when you can see for yourself only large corporations get price listing.
