Ann - Oceanside
This is our second time parking here, so we sort of knew what to expect. It's a dirt parking lot and it rained while we were gone, so we were not surprised that our car was pretty dirty. The location is so near the airport that one could walk there (if one was so inclined). The Shuttle service was excellent. Clean courtesy vans and friendly drivers. We just happened to time it perfectly coming and going and had no wait either time.
Upon return, we were instructed to see the hotel's valet service people, which we did. They gave us a ticket to open the gate to get our car out. We were instructed to first put in the ticket we pulled from the machine when we entered the parking lot and then the (green) ticket which valet gave us. Together these two cards would open the gate...Not. We ended up having to call the attendant to open the gate for us. That was the only glitch of our parking experience. No big deal -We will park there again.
