Why do people park in the reserve areas and not pay? Pulled into pilot in st Louie I knew it was gonna be late so reserved a spot early that morning . Get there the lot is overflow full and no reserve. I was like no not tonight somebody is moving. They finally got the guy up and moved. Tonight I’m in Indianapolis the attendant is out here knocking on doors cause someone has somebodies spot. Dang everyone knows these big city don’t have much parking. Pay, or get here early!

I have read reviews on places where the manager refuses to go out and wake somebody up even though they didn't pay... I'd be calling the 800-number demanding action if the manager was too lazy to do his job

I always use my points for parking. I’ve had this to happen a couple times but there was other spots, so I wouldn’t say anything. But no the lot was full. They acted like they couldn’t find my reservation at first, but I always screenshot mine. I was like now someone’s moving because I’m tired!

Pilot/Flying J’s are notorious for over selling. I always make my reservation on line and they email me the confirmation. I actually had a manager tell me once there was nothing they could do. I said ok, well ya’ll have a no refund policy so I will call customer service. They found me a spot pretty quick.

Lebanon, IN is one of the places that is horrible. I paid, got there, and the two nice ladies behind the counter told me that they couldn't go knocking on doors due to "issues" from the past where the police were called. Meaning, some @$&&*# threatened them or something causing them to fear. So, they set me up with a parking space along the curb in the auto fueling side. Not easy to get into, but much quieter, and didn't smell like urine.

They even refunded my premium cost.

Donna, why do they do that? Cause they are cheap!!!!! My swift trainer did that a few times, he just threw an old receipt from something he bought earlier up on the dash. O/O but I'm guessing he was just cheap since he paid for his own. He said he would move if they woke him, but that he has never had to pay and he had been driving for 9 years.
