Choosing a hotel with on-site EV charging can greatly simplify your road trips and exploration. This way, you can charge overnight, and start your day with full charge. And not worry about driving around to find charging stations.
So how do you find a hotel?
Before you book a hotel, please call them ahead to confirm that the chargers are working. I have heard stories of how the chargers appear to be working online, and when you get there, the charger is NOT functional.
Avoid the aggravation and call head.
Lot of the hotel search sites now allow you to search for hotels that offer EV charging. How ever, most don’t specify what kind of chargers the hotels might have. To verify that
- either call the hotel
- or use Plugshare app to verify the charger type
PlugShare allows looking for hotels very easy.
- Search for your location
- Click on the filters, and select Lodging
