I heard there was a hotel near the airport that will allow you to park your car while you are gone if you get a room on one or both ends of your flight. Is that true?
If you look up SMF airport parking you will find a few hotels that offer this service, as well as some that allow you to book just parking if they have room. The shuttle runs once an hour so you have to be very aware of your travel schedule in order to make your flight; sometimes the shuttle is full so make sure to allow for plenty of extra time.
I"m very frustrated trying to find / reserve parking for my flight out on 6/6 returning on 6/9. I read these over charges, I've called so many places on long term parking and they all come with resv to rooms which I don't need. I've tried to reserve online for SMF and it states parking is booked for those dates?? How can that be for an airport I just don't understand? Also, I was told that there were coupons available but I have yet to find them. Yes, I have called your airport # I get nobody but an automated recording! Very frustrating!! I would like to be sure which terminal to park in at $9 PER DAY (24 hrs)? right now it states Terminal B is closed. Also, which Level is SAFE I don't want to be the one charged at $17 per day. Please HELP!
Does anyone know if there is valet parking at or around the Sacramento Airport?
No valet parking is available inside the SMF airport perimeter.
No the best way I find to get to the airport w/o frustration is taking Supper Shuttle
Our granddaughter leaves on a flight at 12:32 AM. Is it possible to stay overnight in our RV in the parking lot?
SMF Airport does not show a parking facility numer, only the current parking status number 916-874-0670. I presume that you would be able to use the Economy Lot on Aviation Drive, across from the rental car building, which serves SMF's 2 terminals
Give me a map of parking garages that is clear in relation to the terminal I am flying out of. Post the cost. Make it easily visible. This is not 1994 why have you not made this easier? This is the kind of thing that makes everyone else in CA laugh at Sacramento. The site map as is is incomprehenisible. I want to know where to go tomorrow morning to park and then catch my flight efficiently. Please have someone redesign your site who is not familiar with the Sac airport and design it for others also not familiar. This is not a cutting edge concept. Just step up for crying out loud.

All signs at airport and web site say long term remote parking is $9/day. I was charged not only $10/day but for a 26 1/2 hour stay was charged $20. $9 per day plus $2 for every additional hour comes out to $15. Not a big deal, but I hate feeling taken advantage of...
Today we had same experience. I didn't see any notice of cost but this receipt says $10 a day. The car was dropped at 11 a.m 9/1 and picked up at 3 pm 9/4. Which is 4 calendar days but not 96 hours.
I've read the comments, my flight lands at Sac. at 11:55 pm, You say shuttles don't run after midnight, How am I to get my car??
Free shuttle service from daily A surface lot and Economy lot at both terminals of SMF run now on a 24-hour basis.
I intend to park in the long term economy parking lot for 10 days. When I return at 11:30pm will there be an attendant on duty late at night so I can pay cash? I'd rather not deal with a credit card machine and call button.
How safe is the parking lot? Is there a high break in rate there?
I'm not seeing an answer to the question of safty at the Sac airport. Where can I find it?
We have parked in the airport parking lot many times and never had any trouble. Keep anything of value out of sight. We're going to be parking there for 16 days.
I am going to be in kansas for about 16 days and wanted to know what lot I should park my truck into. Also, I was trying to find out what lot I should put it in but cant seem to find that or the prices
Park in the Economy lot on Aviation Drive at a daily rate of $9/day (shuttles to the terminals run every 15-20 minutes - however, shuttle waiting time is affected by peak hours between 4-10am and 8pm & midnight.). Parking is on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more parking info, call 916-874-0670.
