    Driver on return to lot didn't get me to my car, but did drop me off at another rider's car which was 15 spaces away.

    I found both shuttle drivers to be very courteous with removing my bag from my car and putting it back in after my trip. I was glad I didn't have to remember where my car was parked because I never would have found it. The business card with which shuttle to take and the number of my space was very helpful. The cashier at the end was equally courteous. I will use Parking Spot again next time I travel.

    The driver I got when I dropped off my car was awesome! He was nice and sweet and very good. He met me at my car, took my bags and carried them for me. The driver I got when I arrived home was mean and yelled at me and didn't offer to help with my bags at all.

    Found that shuttles are always available both at the lot and at the airport. There really was no waiting time at all. Have used in the past and will continue to use services.

    Exceptional experience. We used the valley option and it was entirely worth the small difference in the cost. the parking lot was easy to find, near the airport and very convenient. The lot attendants and shuttle drivers were friendly and helpful. On our return, it took less than 5 minutes for the shuttle to arrive and our car was waiting and ready to go. Couldn't ask for better!!

    I admit I was wary but online reviews were positive. So glad I reserved with The Parking Spot!! Easy to reserve online, folks were pleasant and got me ( and my luggage!! THANKS!!) out of my car and onto the shuttle in lightening speed. Shuttle was spotless ( no pun intended!!) Return was just as easy. Simple call ahead once I collected my luggage at the airport. I must add that the drive back was a bit intense for all the passengers. The young woman driving wimpy drove WAY TOO FAST and we were all tossed about. Not fun and not necessary. Something to keep in mind.

    We chose valet parking. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The process went smoothly for both dropping off the car and picking it up again. Will use this place again if ever needed.

    The gentleman who picked me up on my return on 8/28 Sunday afternoon was fantastic. Courteous to all his passengers, event the one's who had to wait for the next ride. This survey is not about the pick up driver on 8/28. This is about the driver who took me to the airport originally on 08/25 at 715am. That driver was rude, hostile, seemed to think the customer was at his service, not the other way around. He was totally not a people person so much so that I didn't even tip him. That guy needs customer service. Maybe the 2nd pickup guy can work with him because he is truly horrible.

    It can be a little confusing getting there, had to use my Google maps but besides that no complaints. Make sure you use the Valet, so easy and quick. The shuttle was waiting for us and very quick. I will use this again.

    Although all was resolved and handled amicably, the only complaint is that online our booking was for $8/day self park and we had to tell the attendant 3x because she wanted to charge us $9 or $9.50 although we had our paperwork. When one is tired from travel this is not what is necessary for a clear stress free escape from parking.

    We had Valet service. Car was waiting upon our return.

    We came into the parking lot on Thursday July 14th between 3am and 4am and the cashier was on her cell phone and was very rude. She did not want to answer any of our questions (This was our first time parking here) and she acted like we were inconveniencing her. One of the drivers inside the parking lot then yelled at us because I guess we parked in the wrong area (the cashier should have told us where to park if there was a certain spot we needed to go, but the driver that yelled at us did notify the driver to come pick us up so we did not have to move our car, which was very nice of him). The driver we then had to the airport was friendly and helpful. When we came back on Monday evening we did have to wait about 10min for a shuttle to take us back to our car because the shuttles that passed in that time were all full. We were actually surprised and happy about how short of a wait it was to be able to get back to our car. The driver that we had back to our car was also very helpful and friendly, he dropped us off right at our car! The cashier that waited on us on the way out on Monday between 8pm and 9pm was extremely helpful and friendly. She made us definitely want to use this parking lot again. The only major critism that I have is the overtime/early morning cashier needs to get off her cell phone and help customers when they pull into the lot and not act like everyone is inconveniencing her. Other than that we will definitely be using the lot again when we must travel.

    Flying trips always bring people some anxiety so it was so nice to have a great experience using The Parking Spot in both directions. I would recommend using this lot.
