I don't think I've had a worse parking app experience than this. They're all pretty bad, but Hotspot seems like it was intentionally designed to be as hostile as possible. Oregon City needs to switch immediately. I've never before been required to keep a balance (minimum $10) just to pay 70¢ to park. On top of that, you can't have more than one active session, so I can't pay for parking more than one of my cars at once! Completely outrageous.

My account has been locked for no reason. The app has been buggy recently, and there were times were I can't log in. Today, I logged into the app with my email and I saw this error saying that my account was locked, I looked at my email and it redirected me to the website. I tried logging in with my Google account and the same thing happened like what it did in the app. Hopefully the developers can patch the bugs and fix the errors.

Hi there, accounts are locked as a safety precaution when an incorrect password has been entered 3 times while attempting to log in, and is an easy fix. Please reach out to us at so we can help you with this! HotSpot Customer Support

Buggy app, use requires yearly subscription. I thought I would try this app to see if it would be easier than walking back to my car and depositing coins. It wasn't. the setup is somewhat tedious and only after you have entered all your info does it tell you that in order to use this app at all for parking you are required to pay a yearly subscription.
