Review & Giveaway: The Parking Spot, Near Phoenix Sky Harbor!

I don't fly very often at all. If I do, I usually have a friend or family member drop me off and pick me up at the airport. I've heard horror stories about parking your vehicle at the airport and forgetting where you parked or having items stolen from your vehicle.

A few weeks ago, I had to take a trip to Fort Wayne, Indiana. You might be wondering...why on earth I would need to travel to Fort Wayne. Well, the company that I work for is based out of Fort Wayne. And let me just say, it was a very lovely city! If you've ever been, you probably know of a little place called DeBrands. If not, you need to try it. Their chocolate is UH-MAY-ZING!

My flight out of Phoenix was pretty early on a Sunday morning. I didn't want my husband to wake up the boys and pile in the car to get me to the airport. I figured out from my house to the airport is around 40 miles so the drive is at least 30 minutes.

I figured my best options were airport or near airport parking and a shuttle. There was no way I was going to load into a shuttle and travel that far with a group of strangers. So, I decided on the parking near the airport. I found The Parking Spot and The Parking Spot 2. Both locations are just a few miles from the airport and you can reserve a spot online. I thought that was a pretty cool feature.

I chose the Parking Spot 2 on 40th Street and Van Buren. This location offered covered and uncovered parking. The original location only offers covered. I ended parking in a covered spot and I'm glad I did. The weather is still warm and it was nice to get back to my vehicle that was not sitting in the sun.

The parking attendant was very helpful and directed me to the covered area. She let me know I could choose any open spot. Before I even got out of my vehicle, the shuttle driver had pulled up and was ready to help me with my baggage. We made a quick loop around the lot to look for other passengers and away we went. He had me to my terminal in no time.

When the driver handed me my bags at the curb, he made sure to tell me that when I returned I needed the shuttle for location 2. I'm glad he mentioned that because I would have been clueless!

When I returned to Phoenix, I was exhausted from a long day of traveling. So, I was not in the mood to stand around and wait on the shuttle. I was completely shocked and happy that shuttles for both locations were already outside at the curb. I know they were not there for me specifically but they are constantly sending shuttles so that the wait time is very little to none.

I loved getting back to my car and finding it safe and cool from the covered structure. The checkout was easy and the attendant was very friendly. I found the prices to be very reasonable. The open air parking is $8.95 per day and the covered parking is $10.95 per day. Please note that prices may vary by locations.

When you go online to you can search for locations, make reservations, print coupons and join The Spot Club. If you travel quite often, this is a great program. You can earn a free day with every seven days you pay for.

One lucky reader will win a pass for one week of FREE parking at any Parking Spot Location. There are more than 37 locations at U.S. airports! If you will be traveling soon, this is a great giveaway for you!

I park at an offsite parking place that shuttles you in there.

I always park offsite with a place that shuttles you up to the terminal.
