Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded this app while visiting DC about a month ago. Figured it would help me find nearby overnight parking since it seemed like all the street parking near where I was staying had a 2 hour limit. With the help of this app we found a parking lot nearby that cost $30(I’d figured it would be at the very least $20 for overnight parking in a big city so $30 seemed understandable). We paid it and dropped off our car. In the morning when we go to pick up our car, the lot has signs all over saying that the parking rate is $10 daily. At the time that we’d dropped off the car it was fairly late in the evening and most of these extra signs had been locked up in the little office and nobody was working there that time of night. So when we’re there in the daytime to pick up the car we asked the attendant about the price difference and he says he doesn’t know why this app is charging so much more. Literally triple what the lot is charging. I emailed customer service and was told that it’s only $10 certain hours. I responded saying that there’s absolutely no hours listed on the signs in the lot and sent pictures. The customer service representative tells me that she’s messaged the company that runs the lot about their misleading signs. Um.....no. The signs aren’t misleading. You’re just stealing people’s money and blaming it on the parking lot. The attendant at the lot told me it’s always $10 a day and they actually work there.
Today was my first time using the app. I purchased a parking pass through this app and when I get there I parked and realized there was no one there to show proof of parking. I called the help people on this app and she told me to write out my parking pass number on a piece of paper and stick it in the dash. So after I did that I was still concerned about being towed so I walked all around the garage there was no one. Finally I found a security button I could speak to someone on and they told me I couldn’t park there that my pass was not valid and I’d be towed because the garage was for people that lived in the apartments... I was so upset because the woman from this app told me my car would have been fine. I called the help people back and they were able to refund me my money with out any questions. That is the only reason why I’m giving two stars because they made it easy to get the refund. But I had no where to park and was late for the baseball game I bought tickets to because of this parking mess.
Once the best, now the worst!
This new version is totally useless. You should not force the user into making the reservation through the app just to be able to export the directions into google or apple maps. That is extortion and a money grab. This app is an exact copy of Parkwhiz. If I wanted that horrible user experience, I would have downloaded that app. I had been using the old BestParking app for over 4 years now in NYC and never had any problems with functionality. It’s like these developers have never even tried to use their app for its actual purpose. Listen to your users! Bring back the functions of the old app. You should be able to get directions to a garage without having make a reservation in the app. Things happen - construction, accidents, the president being in town, all these things can totally screw up your commute and prevent you from getting to the reserved garage. Reservations should be optional, not mandatory! Add direction functionality to all garages with or without making a reservation. Thank you.
