    This truck stop has the highest parking fee of any truck stop I've ever seen: $27.50! And that's just for 24 hours! Usually when an independent truck stop requires you to pay for parking, I give them the benefit of the doubt and figure it's just so they can stay in business with the big chains. But this place is overcharging and fleecing the truck drivers who are working so hard to support America during this pandemic. So stay away from this place, truck drivers!

    It’s supply and demand out in that area. At least the lot is paved now, back in the day it had holes big enough to lose a truck in.

    That doesn’t seem to be outrageous considering the neighborhood.

    I never thought of Sumner as an upper-class area, but I guess I see your point.

    Wow, really? At least they're not cheap! I suppose some of that revenue goes towards keeping up the concrete lot.

    That place way always dumpy. The parking demand is high in that area, so close to the city...

    I stayed at the Holiday Inn across the street once and woke up in the morning, pulled the curtains and there it was in all its glory: the snow covered Mount Ranier in the distance.

    $27.50 ?? That's for valet parking, right ? :biggrin_25513:

    Hmm, that never occurred to me until now. I suppose you're paying a premium for the view somewhat. Good point.

    Sadly, no. I believe it's one hour free parking and then after that, it's $27.50 up to 24 hours as far as I could tell. They don't have a specific website, so it's best to call them and make sure.
