This morning as we were about to top off and go, we drove from the back of Holiday Inn Express to the Superchargers in front. All except one were ICE'd by SUV's. It was quite difficult to maneuver straight into the one stall, as the space left was so narrow, and there were also cars fully parked on the opposite side from the Supercharger stalls.
When questioned, the lady in charge of breakfast said that they had come to her last night and asked for permission to park there. She commented "we don't see many Teslas" (That's because we're so fast)
Holiday Inn shares parking lots with La Quinta next door.
To be fair, the sign posted at the superchargers indicates 2 hour EV parking from noon to 8 pm, but leaves the impression that the stalls are fair game at night.
If we had not charged yesterday, we would have another frustrating search for the owners of those vehicles before taking on a charge. Like yesterday in Omak, WA.
This problem will only get worse, as more Teslas come into service.
