    Any recommendations for long term parking a Tesla at PDX? (not worried about access to a charger)

    I am pricing out some airfares out of North Bend and PDX to O'Hare, and it's over $1000 less out of PDX. It's cheaper for us to drive up and stay at a nearby hotel at that price difference.

    Thanks in advance!

    Some hotels will permit travelers to park in their lots while gone... Or the PDX Economy lot is $10/day and does have free charger access (know you said not a concern, but still..) The EV spaces are also near a shuttle shelter, so in a high traffic/visibility area.

    I parked in the PDX economy parking lot for 7 days. On the way back, I needed to drive to Woodburn supercharger before went back Olympia. Hopefully, one day will have supercharger in Portland also in Seattle.

    I would call the airport hotels, I know some of them will let you leave a car with them while you're out of town. I presume there's a requirement that you stay with them for a night or two. They may charge a fee but IIRC it's less than the long-term lot charge.

    Thanks for the responses! I totally forgot about the hotel option. We arrive in Portland in the evening, so we can stay the night and leave it for a few days.

    It's amazing how bizarre airplane ticket pricing can be. It costs twice as much to fly to South Bend, Indiana than to Paris, France from North Bend.

    @ilovemycoffee - I've been to both Paris and S.Bend... maybe the airlines are trying to encourage visiting one over the other ;)
