What our customers say about Premier Parking Tampa Airport


This was the worst parking lot I have ever parked at. What a huge mistake just to save a couple of dollars. I called to have them pick me up and they advised it would be 15 to 20 minutes. 60 minutes later they finally showed up. I heard them telling others the same thing. Some advise to Premier Parking - Just be honest with your customers about the wait times. Lying only makes us more upset. The parking lot leaves a less than secure feel and the staff is not helpful. Park with them at your own risk but it is not worth it just to save a couple bucks.

Making our reservation was easy. I completed everything online. That was the only thing that was easy. The rest of our experience was NOT.

First, finding Premier Parking on Hillsborough Avenue was a nightmare, especially in the dark at 4:45 am. There are no lit signs to signify where it is. It is NOT on Hillsborough Avenue, but BEHIND Freedman's Office Furniture store, which is on the main road. They have 1, count it, ONE van to shuttle passengers to and from where we needed to be. What if something happened to the van?
On our return, we called for pick-up and waited nearly an hour, because the dispatch person said they had a party of 18 people and it took a while to process them. Remember the one van? Also, while waiting for our vehicle at Premier, it was stuck behind four vehicles and the driver had called our claim number in as we boarded the LATE shuttle pick up at the airport (mentioned earlier). If Premier doesn't have enough help to work the site, don't open at all. We had to wait another 1/2 hour for them to free our car from the jumble of cars in the lot. The attendant was rude and we will DEFINITELY NOT use this service in the future. Needless to say, nobody got a tip from us. It was NOT worth the discount. I will park elsewhere next trip.

Location - looked run down and scary to pull into at night with gang of young people hanging out at business that sat in front.

Shuttle - van was worn and used step stool for in and out. Ok, but seemed tacky.

Pick up - waited over an hour due to only one vehicle to do pick ups and confusion as to location of pick up area. Card I was given did not have enough info.

Driver - was courteous and knew I was not a happy camper. I was careful not to take it out on him. He was doing his job and did it well. I gave him a fair tip.

The whole operation was way below the standard I expected, and I have used many off site discount locations. I travel fairly regularly and definitely the "most challenging" parking experience I've had.

My husband found this lot as an alternative to paying the big prices at TIA. We were going for a 4 day trip, flying out early on a Friday and back late on a Monday. My husband called to make a reservation, gave the girl who answered his email and was told to expect a confirmation email, which never came. We arrived at the parking lot, which is in a VERY unsafe part of town, behind a warehouse and incredibly hard to find, at 6am to one man working the lot (with one streetlight lighting the entire lot). He asked for our email, which we did not have, and said he couldn't park us without it. After some arguing, he agreed to let us park there, and since the lot was full, had us leave the key to valet and gave us a ticket. A van pulled up and squeezed us and our luggage in with about 8 other people, and got us to the airport. The problems arose when we came back. We arrived at TIA and I called as instructed. He told me where to go and said to call them when we got outside. I did so, and went to voicemail twice. He called back, and said the man was on his way and had just left the lot (about a 10 minute drive). 25 minutes later, the van pulls up, almost already packed. My husband and I squeeze in, the driver starts texting while driving, then calling the lot to give him the ticket numbers from the valet stubs he insisted we hand over. We pull into another lot at the airport, and there are more people waiting who are distraut at being left again, after waiting over an hour. The driver leaves without them, and takes us to the Premier lot. We pull in (it's around 11:30 at night) and there are all sorts of souped up racing cars in the lot next to the Premier Parking lot, with people outside yelling and drinking. We all unload the van, and some of the other guest's cars are waiting. The driver takes off to get the rest of the cars (driver and valet?) leaving the van idleing even though the tank was on E and there were people waiting back at the airport. Little by little, everyone's car is found and they leave, except my husband and I. The driver gets back in the van and leaves, and the "lot manager" is ignoring his constantly ringing phone and tells us they lost our ticket and thus, cannot find our keys. My husband goes to help him look in their office, which is a one room trailer with no electricty. My husband had to get on his hands and knees and use the flashlight on his phone to look. Another 15 minutes go by before they're found. There was no system, keys were just duct taped to the wall of the trailer, or piled in the floor. Even having the ticket (which they lost) wouldn't have helped since the keys weren't numbered. Then the guy asked if we'd move our own car out of the back of the valet lot so he could answer the phone. It was a horrible experience, and I cannot stress strongly enough that no one should park here EVER.

Your online information says the number to call for pickup at the airport after you return is on the receipt. It is not. Apparently it is on a separate card the person giving you the receipt is supposed to give you at the same time. But I was not given the card with the phone number, and didn't discover that the number wasn't on the receipt until after I arrived. I kept calling the phone numbers from my search on the internet, but got the run-around and recorded prompts that were not helpful at all. I finally reached the right number after about an hour. The van driver was nice, but I was pretty frustrated. I suggest that you either print the number on the receipt, or make sure the people get the card with the phone number. And if the number isn't printed on the receipt, you should change the internet directions that say it will be.

Seemed to wait kind of long for return shuttle. Otherwise all was good. Couldn't find claim #. So I'm sure that didn't help. But should be able to get picked up especially after 11:30 @ night. They had my name & other info online. Maybe put claim # w/that info. I'm sure I'm not the first person to lose #. But will try again. The price is right.

Worst parking experience I ever had. Couldn't find the lot location, no address number on the location. People were unfriendly and unhelpful. Parking was behind a motel in an unguarded dirt lot. Had to carry luggage back from the lot to the front of the motel. Wait time for shuttle was too long and ridiculously long on the return trip. Had to carry luggage back to car from front of motel. Wouldn't use this service again even if it were free. Shoddy operation incompetently run.

No problems at all. Parking went well and I was promptly taken to the airport. The car was waiting for me on my return.

My only challenge was calling and getting "on the other line..." message and not knowing what to do next - except keep dialing. Got to a live person on the third attempt.
