How to Use SpotHero’s Search Filters

Can I go in and out of this garage during my reservation? Does this facility have wheelchair accessible parking? Will I have to touch a button or pull a ticket? We’ve taken our drivers’ frequently asked questions when searching for a spot and have the solution they’re looking for: parking search filters!

1. Self Park

We understand how important your vehicle is to you, and that’s why we offer our self park feature. This filter will show you all facilities in your desired location that allow you to park yourself.

2. Valet Parking

If you’re looking for someone to park your car for you or maybe you’re crunched for time, select the valet filter and an attendant will tackle the parking job for you.

3. Garage/Covered Parking

Snow day? Avoiding the icy road conditions? Or hiding out from a heat wave? Don’t sweat it! You can filter garage parking only to make sure you’re out of harsh weather conditions.

4. Uncovered Lot Parking

Maybe it’s a nice day and you’re in a rush to get to the big game — search for an uncovered parking spot and get where you need to go!

5. Touchless Parking

Touchless is our newest (and possibly our favorite) feature! Filter to touchless-only spots and this will ensure you don’t have to touch a button or pull a ticket. Some facilities send you a barcode to scan upon entry, while others have license plate recognition technology — just drive up after booking your reservation and you’re in!

6. In & Out Allowed

Sometimes we need flexibility. That’s why we created a search filter for facilities that allow in and out privileges whenever you need. Feel free to enter and exit the facility on your own time during your reservation window!

7. On-Site Staff

Use the on-site staff search filter for whenever you may need extra assistance parking your vehicle, or for time frames when you’d feel safer with staff present.

8. Airport Shuttle

Select the airport shuttle filter to find spots that offer a shuttle service to the nearest airport! We highly recommend using the airport search filter on the homepage to find the best spots specific for airport parking needs. Search and book parking near your airport here.

9. Wheelchair Accessible

Easily filter parking facilities for wheelchair accessibility. These filtered spots will tell you whether they have handicap parking. These facilities often offer elevator access as well.

10. EV Charging

Allow your electric vehicle to charge while you’re parked! EV charging stations are located in designated areas in facilities with this filter.
