We went on our first road trip over spring break and wanted to get everyone's opinion about charging in public. We traveled from Long Beach to Monterey and San Francisco. We encountered the following scenarios: 1. We went to the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park and parked in the music councourse garage. We found the charging station I saw listed on line. An EV only parking space was open so I pulled in. On one side was a Leaf connected to a charger. On the other was a Volt connected to the other charger. The charger connected to the Leaf showed that it was not charging. So I unplugged the Leaf and connected our model S. When we came back about 4 hours later, a new Leaf was parked next to us. The Leaf owner disconnected us while we were charging and connected to his/her car. I think we picked up about 2 hours of charge. The remote app did not pick up the car in the underground parking structure while we were in the museum. What do you think about the Leaf owner disconnecting us while we were charging? 2. I picked a hotel in the East Bay mainly because it has a charge point charger. When I made the reservation I indicated that I needed to charge overnight. When we arrived a Leaf was charging and the front desk personnel indicated the charger was first come first served. They had no idea who was charging and were no help. Another Leaf pulled in shortly after us. The Sheraton Four Points is adjacent to Bay Town, a popular shopping area which charges for parking. The Sheraton does not charge for parking and use of their charge station is free. The front desk does not monitor who is charging. It took me a while to figure this out. So five hours after we arrived, I pulled the plug on the Leaf and started charging. I woke up early at 5:30 and checked the parking lot. Both Leafs were gone so I it appeared neither were overnight guests of the hotel. We had a full charge which enabled us to drive directly to Harris Ranch and skip going through Gilroy. I think hotels should allow us to reserve a certain amount of charging time and monitor who is using their chargers. Any thoughts or similar experiences?
