Best way to Park in the big city

I'm in NYC this is THE BEST!!! I hate apps and websites the take forever to setup. This was smooth and easy. Worked first try. I've used it close to 10 times now and trust it enough to pay in advance. It's great! I get better prices to park for 8-12 hours anywhere in NYC. I can see an outside picture of the parking lot and decide if I want to park my car there. If I do, I pay, and have a reservation so I have a spot when I get there. The biggest problem with NYC parking is getting there ontime. The 'Early bird special' if you miss that your screwed. And most garages end that at 9-10am. This app solved that problem for me. I can get there whenever I want and am still paying $10-30 less each time.
Update: you have to read the restrictions of the parking garage on the app. I’ve had a garage charge me the difference between the $21 I paid through this app to their regular price $65, because I came in AFTER their early bird special! Tricky and greedy.

So here we have a great idea, AND it works!!!

They work with tow company’s to rip you off in the kindest way

I have been using spot hero for years and it seems I keep running into the same issues over and over again. I will select the time closest to when I arrive ex9:55 am I get to the parking lot I book for 10 am and Leave my car by 10. I select the correct time and exit time. I place book and double check. Still is correct. I check again after finding out my car was towed it moved my reservation to noon, the tow company acknowledge that is was an issues that happens to their towed cars a lot. I got lucky a few times as I knew the lot manager and they were kind enough to either call or let me know instead of towing. This issues has happened over and over again multiple times, each time no resolution , just “we will look at the tech side” it’s beyond frustrating and has cost me more money than I’ve saved in my time with this app from paying the fees at garages for “incorrect parking time” yet the app shows proper time at time of booking and payment only later to show a different time. This app has cost me money, caused me to be stuck in a garage trying to figure out why the parking ticket I used to get in won’t work on the way out, having to pay a lot attendant for the same reasons. I’d recommend using the meters as this app does not save time and money

Thanks for leaving this review, and we're very sorry for the trouble you experienced with your reservation. The last thing we want is for any of our customers to be ticketed or towed. We have passed these details along to our tech team to investigate this further. Feel free to reach out to with any additional feedback, comments, or questions.

App is great, customer service is not

The app is pretty easy to use, so that’s the only reason this rating has more than one star. The company claims “we guarantee you will have a spot to park in, at the price you paid, or your money back”. That is not the case, in my experience. I had a three day trip to Minneapolis, and booked three spots in the same parking garage. Each night I was charged additional before the garage would let me leave. I attempted to call customer service, got an automated “we understand your situation might be an emergency” message, and then the line disconnected. I submitted an “email” but they limit the characters that can be included to get that claim process started. I had to reply to two separate emails to get any kind of response, as the first email thread got zero response after I submitted photos as evidence for being charged by the garage. Then, after someone replied and said I would get credit through the app (which is NOT money back), I replied saying that was not what they promised through their money back guarantee, and have heard nothing since. (I am in contact with my bank about the charges because this is ridiculous.) I would only ever recommend this app/company to someone as a last resort.
