    The entire process of leaving and picking up our vehicle took too long. Also, I do not like the idea of leaving my keys with the staff at the parking center. Thank you

    My biggest issue was when I called the number to request a pickup at the airport, the hold was long to start with. After I spoke to the operator and she said someone would be right there. After 20 minutes I had to call back and then it was about 10 min before I was picked up. The driver was very nice and presented good customer service. He said he was a new guy. He also said they hadn't gotten my call the first time. Checking in and out they had trouble finding my prepaid reservation. Then it took another 10 min. To get my keys. This very polite said he would go get my car but the disinterested girl said she can get it herself I have something else I need you to do. It was an hour from the time I called until the time I left. I was expecting this to be a 15-20 min process. The rude girl did it for me. Thank you for asking.

    I used this place before, apparently when it was under different management, because I will no longer use this place to park my car. Dropping off and getting to the airport was very simple and the staff was courteous. Trying to get a ride from the airport back to my car was upsetting. I called the number and was put on hold for more than 30 minutes before a person came on the line. Another 20 minutes later the shuttle driver arrived (it's less than a 5 minute drive to the place). I got there and I was being charged money when I shouldn't be since I did a prepay. It took the guy forever to get it fixed and then I probably waited 15 minutes for them to find the keys to my car. I apparently was dealing with the new manager. I'm sorry but if this is the service I will receive with new management, then I will pay the extra money to actually park at the airport and probably not leave with a crack in my rear bumper either.

    I was so eager to drive home that I forgot my suitcase at the parking lot office. They found it before I realized that I forgot it and called me. They kept it in safe place until I was able to retrieve it the next morning.

    Staff was very courteous and timely in handling my reservation/parking. I highly recommend them. They quickly took me to the airport and picked me up in just a couple of minutes after I called them!

    Parking lot is ok. Needs to be repaved as there are loose gravel and pot holes around. Overall it was nice.

    You could advertise a little more. We have made a number of pleasure trips and always have juggle trying to get someone in the family or friends circle to drop us off and/or pick us up OR relent and pay the exorbitant daily fee at the airport. We have asked often is there might be someplace where we could park and shuttle to the airport and got no results. On a whim, I looked in the yellow pages last week for a "park and ride" option and saw your number. Thank you for this needed service that you provide.

    Thrifty Parking made our trip SO MUCH EASIER! THE STAFF ARE WONDERFUL ... ESPECIALLY the very courteous, efficient and BUBBLY Jenna! MANY THANKS! ... i can't remember the woman who checked us in but she too was friendly and helpful. The trip-TO-airport DRIVER (again, i've lost his name - older, nice-looking man) was GREAT!!!

    the only suggestion I might make is that, when older patrons return from a flight to pick up their car, you might want to offer to drive them to that section of the lot (I'm 76, although I appear younger).

    Will not use your service again at this lot. The net savings were $0.10 per day.

    The staff was great, and service prompt. I did have a tire problem after picking up my car. I have almost brand new tires, and on my way home driving on the interstate I had a tire go flat and started shredding before I realized what was happening. Fortunately, I was able to pull safely off the highway. There's no way to know for sure, but something must have happened to the tire while it was on the lot. There had been no tire problem before that.
