SpotHero enables users to search for parking spots in their area, make a reservation, and pay for the spot with their credit card. For anyone in the US looking to find a parking spot near them, this app is for you. There are various filters that allow you to find an open spot anytime of the day or night. You can also search by specific location or type of parking lot (for which there are several options). If there is a specific lot that offers valet services, the app allows users to search and use it. You can even choose the amount of time you would like your reservation, from 15 minutes all the way up to 3 hours long.

How to download SpotHero:

SpotHero is available for both iOS and Android devices. You can download the app here or you can search for it in your device’s app store. Simply tap the ‘install’ button to start downloading and installing it.

How to use the app

To get started, simply enter the address of where you would like to go. The app will then generate a list of parking lots and prices for each one. You can easily see which ones have spots available or coming up soon as well as how many spaces they have available.

You can then select the type of parking you want and how much time you would like to reserve it for. You could even go as long as 48 hours if needed, making this app great for road trips or vacations where someone might need a spot reserved days in advance (like for a concert or sports game).

Once you have reserved your spot, the app will give directions on how to get there. You can also choose to be notified 15 minutes before it is time for you to go and pick up your car. The notification of when it’s ready has been very accurate so far in my experience.

The app also allows users to reserve spots in cities all around the world. I was able to download and use it while visiting my grandmother in Florida a few weeks ago, making parking easier than ever before for me.

SpotHero also allows users to book parking spots in different cities all around the world. This has come in handy while I have been traveling as well because it allowed me to look up places and find which ones were close to parking lots, making finding one much easier than trying on my own or asking locals.

There are many times in life where having a spot reserved ahead of time is much more convenient than trying to find one on your own. Whether it be for concerts, sporting events, road trips or just everyday parking near work and home spots can come in handy during these moments when you need them the most. Overall, an app with many great features that can come in handy and help save time while trying to find a spot at the last minute.

Users can search for parking in the area by location or specific lot. Once you have selected your desired option, select “Reserve Now” to reserve a spot. You will then be prompted with options such as time and price of reservation along with distance from where you are located at that moment. If you have made the reservation, you will be prompted to enter your credit card information.

SpotHero also has a rewards system. The more you use the app, the faster your account will level up. Once users reach different levels of their SpotHero accounts, they can earn cash back and even free parking from there on out when using this app to reserve spots for them. They have four categories: New, Bronze, Silver and Gold.

SpotHero Review

What I really like about this app is that it allows you to search for parking spots in your area and reserve them, even at the last minute. How many times have we all been somewhere with no idea where exactly to park or had a hard time finding an open spot? This can easily be solved by searching for parking in your area through SpotHero.

I downloaded the app and was instantly satisfied. I found a parking spot for 7:30 pm, only $7 dollars. The best part about this is you can reserve your slot 24 hours ahead of time or even on-the go if need be to make sure someone doesn’t take it before its even yours.

I love that I can search for parking spots in my area and find a valet service if needed. For example, during the weekend it may be easier to park at an apartment complex or restaurant versus driving around blocks looking for a spot since there are more cars than open spaces. On top of that, you can use the app to find out how much time is left on your reservation.

The only downside about this app is that it does not work for all areas. If there are no parking spots available in a certain area then SpotHero will notify users by saying “no results” or something along those lines. However, as long as you do not get that notification then it’s safe to assume there are still parking spots in your area.

This app is great for anyone who drives or takes public transportation places. It has come in handy many times during my time at college because I can easily find a spot near the campus and just reserve it with this app instead of driving around looking desperately everywhere to try and find a spot.

Overall, I love this app. It makes parking a lot easier and less stressful. You can even use it for valet service if you are not feeling like driving around looking for an open spot or want to avoid getting tickets from the city police department. The SpotHero App gives users easy access at their fingertips to find parking spots, whether it be on their own or with the use of a valet service.
