Just wanted to say I tried a new parking location called, 'The Parking Spot (http://www.theparkingspot.com)' and they were GREAT!!

I've been very disappointed lately with the service using the Buffalo Airport Shuttle parking (once had to drive around and wake up a driver to pick us up and another time the driver just sat in his seat while I attempted to load my luggage onto the shuttle with my baby strapped to the front of me in a carrier! So thankful for fellow travellers who helped me out.)

Anyway, saw the vans for The Parking Spot during my last bad experience and decided to give them a try. They were GREAT!

- discount coupons available online (Total for us was $66.12 for 9 days)
- picked us up immediately after parking and loaded bags onto van
- unloaded bags at airport
- frequent shuttle runs back to lot
- loaded our bags at the airport on return trip and....
- when we got back to the lot the driver happily said, 'My rules are that you leave the shuttle and I unload your bags.' He did this....right into the trunk of our car!
- when we paid for our parking each person in the vehicle was given a bottle of cold water for the drive home!

If you're flying out of Buffalo I'd highly recommend this company!

They used to be called SunPark then it was Fast Park. It's right across the street. Now it's the Parking Spot. We always use them and have never had any issues. They are very prompt to pick up.

Good to hear.
Sounds like a good option for 7 night trips.
For my upcoming trip, as we are staying for 12 days, it was more economical to do a park and fly.

This is our first time flying out of Buffalo so I am not too sure on what to do. I was looking at the airport parking and it was a little more pricey. We might just use this company... Do you have to reserve a time to get picked up or do you stand in a certian spot to get picked up at??

Flygrl, please look into park and fly options as well. In our case, it was much cheaper (and more convenient) than parking at the airport. There are several threads here about park and fly hotels. If you click on my user name and search my posts, you will see several references for these threads.

Thanks so much Camilo, I saw the coupon and was checking the rate at the airport and it was a better deal with the coupon. Did you reserve a spot? We are just driving over that morning my parents live in Welland so we will spend the night there the day before.

Hi Tanya,
we're doing a park and fly package at the StayBridge Suites. To us, it was cheaper and more convenient than parking at the airport or nearby.

Have a great trip....

I get the same thing too Hockey Mom.....everytime I look at this other lot, it costs more than the Buffalo Airport. I would rather go there and know that I dont have to worry about the hassle of another shuttle from some other lot coming to pick me up.

I have travelled many times from BUF and used the lots, never had a problem. They usually handle my bags for me as well as I have several and am a lone traveller at times. I have never had anything but great service.

Check out betterbidding and use Priceline to bid on the 3.5* in Buffalo-Amherst. You will get the Buffalo Marriott Niagara since it is the only hotel listed under the 3.5* category with priceline in all geographic zones for Buffalo. You just register your vehicle at the front desk for the free shuttle to the airport which is 5 miles away and they pick you up when you return. There is no limit on how long you can leave your vehicle and the great thing is you can do it when book through Priceline and park for free. The hotel is very nice. If you are booking a few days before your stay you can normally get it for $60.00.
