Where Do Locals Get Free Hotel Parking In Las Vegas?

Most Las Vegas hotels give free parking to Nevada residents for 3 hours. Some Strip hotels do not offer locals a parking discount, even to go to the box office. See which hotels are NOT Local Friendly below.

The Locals Secret: An MGM M-Life credit card entitles cardholders to free parking at all 15 of their properties. That includes free parking for special events and hotel stays. Google their no-fee M-Life Mastercard credit card!

Once you have your M-Life CC, take it to any MGM Rewards Counter. There you will receive your magic free parking player’s club card. (We saved about $1000 in MGM parking fees last year and make nothing from telling you this.)

Why Do Las Vegas Hotels Charge For Parking?

Years ago, long-term parking at the airport was $3-$8 a day, and short-term parking was free. After 9-11-01, airport parking became more expensive. Las Vegas locals figured out that they’d save time and money by utilizing free parking at the MGM Grand. It was easy to take a taxi (AKA Uber) to the airport. MGM Grand was okay with that until they experienced running out of parking during events.

When MGM Grand started charging for parking airport parkers switched to the Excalibur and New York, New York. Management realized quickly that parking fees only had a small impact on occupancy rates. Now, all 15 MGM properties have parking fees.
