Barrie's Review
(March 2, 2015) Actually, Smartpark was full and they sent us to Expresspark North. Worked out fine.
Verified Stay Review Reviewers' Shuttle Wait: 5-10 minutes
great parking option!
(February 25, 2015) We have used Smart Park for many years now (10+), and it has always been an affordable way to leave our car at the airport as well as courteous and prompt shuttle service to/from the airport. I do use the on-line reservation to assure a spot though because the lot does fill up sometimes.

(February 12, 2015) The parking is in close proximity to I-95 and is very conveniently and easy to find location. The shuttle ride to the airport is 15 min. The shuttle bus picked me up in less than 5 min after my call and took me to the parking, never mind I was the only passenger onboard. Good experience overall.

Arizona trip
(January 24, 2015) When we first arrived we were lost and when I called the lady there was very helpful in guiding us to the parking lot. On our return we were not given the name of the lot we were in so the driver was very helpful in find our car and even helped to load the luggage. We would recommend Park Smart to anyone looking for off site parking.

Staff who picked me up from the airport on January 14th
(January 19, 2015) I normally do not have a problem w/Smart Park, but the driver who picked me up, his van smelled like smoke ... ugh!

always prompt and friendly
(January 8, 2015) We have used SmartPark for many years when flying for both business and family vacations. Only once (during the holiday season) were we unable to use SmartPark because it was full. We have since used the online reservation system to guarantee a spot. The drivers are courteous and helpful, the checkout is friendly and a breeze when we return. The cost has gone up less than similar airport parking over the years.
