The Hanscom Hotel does NOT offer free parking, but there are free, non-metered parking spots nearby, metered parking spots, and paid parking lots.
There are a few parking spots behind the hotel, but they are reserved for the attached restaurant and the penthouse apartment. So DO NOT park behind the hotel!
Paid Lots with Overnight Parking
There is a private parking lot next to the Hanscom Hotel. Ask about overnight rates, plus you may be able to negotiate lower rate for 2 or more nights.
Paid Lots with No Overnight Parking
The Municipal Lot on 8th Street & Boardwalk is on same side of the street as the Hanscom Hotel. It uses a credit card system. Overnight parking is not allowed.
Free Non-Metered Street Parking
You can park overnight and leave your car there for several days. Best times to find spots are off hours: early morning, evenings and weekdays:
- Starting at 700 block of Ocean Ave & Wesley Ave and going north
- 4th Street
- 5th St between Atlantic & Bay
- Basically, the farther from the ocean, the more non-metered parking
Non-metered Parking Lot
7th & Central Ave 9:00 am – 6:00 pm (no overnight parking is allowed)
Metered & Attended Lots
(see map) As a rule, attended parking lots run in 6 hour shifts. If you want to stay all day, you may get stuck paying twice the posted rate, so be careful! There are a few parking lots that allow you to park all day. Look for the signs.
Parking Lot Rates vary through some weird combination of weather, day of the week, time of day, and mood of the attendant… There just doesn’t seem to be any way to figure out the rate at any given moment. While the following rates are general guidelines, rates will vary from lot to lot. Also, most lots do NOT allow overnight parking.
- Weekdays: from $10 to $12 (6 hours)
- Weekends: from $15 to $20 (6 hours)
- Holidays: from $20 to $30
