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!!!
Big time scam
I just wrote a lengthy review and it doesn't seem to have posted. Basically, I should have sorted by "most critical"'reviews before choosing to use it. My experience mirrors so many others. Lots do not honor your "reservation", in fact there IS NO reservation, I was told. Actually, I was yelled at, both in drop off and pick up—the attendant was furiously ranting that SpotHero and any other app mean squat and that they to not reserve. They if they're full, they're full. Also, I was seriously overcharged my SpotHero, who claims to give half off. The garages listed prices were much less than I paid via SpotHero and SpotHero charged me the night before, when it booked the fake reservation for me. They charged me for the full price, even though I ended up being done in half the time. There is no way to adjust got real time parking lot use. They charge you for your estimated time there. But I'm sure they would have a way to adjust up if you stayed longer. In any case, this is a scam and a half! Never again. Just go into the city, find a lot and pay their prices. You will likely be paying a whole lot less. The good reviews have GOT to be mostly fakes!! Purchased! Or from people who don't know better, or from a few lots who maybe honor this and other parking apps.

Great tool but should allow rating parking spots
It’s a great tool and saved me a lot of money in NY city. However, my first experience was horrible. On a beautiful day I booked my spot through the app. then an hour or so later pulled into the garage. Garage manager bluntly told me that they do not honor reservations because they can charge more to people who pull in without a reservation and because it’s a beautiful day they won’t have an issue selling out that day. And I should discuss for a refund with spot hero. Or I could pay the difference. It was a shocker. Didn’t know what to do. I depended on the app and it failed me at first use... It wasn’t really the app failing me in reality, which is why I continued to use it, but it was the parking garage management. But app doesn’t have any way to provide me any feedback or warning about places like that, so it’s partially responsible.
Then I started checking the garages on google for reviews, before booking on the app. Yes, it’s painful but gives “some” peace of mind. A review option within the app would be greatly greatly useful. Lack of parking space feedback function is what’s taking one star away from my review.
