Let’s dive in!

We’ve broken up this post into 3 categories: Official Los Angeles Cruise Parking, Off-Site Parking, and Hotels with Parking.

Official Port of Los Angeles Cruise Parking

With a huge port on one side and residential area on the other, there isn’t a lot of space for independent car parking garages. Still, you will have several good choices, including the official port parking (Battleship IOWA, Catalina Sea and Air Terminal, Los Angeles World Cruise Center).

The Port of Los Angeles provides the most convenient parking. No parking reservations are required, and you can use the on-site parking structures for overnight parking. Parking Lots 1 and 2 are open from 9 AM to 6 PM, while Parking Lots 6, 7, and 8 are open 24/7.

Free shuttle bus service is available to and from the cruise terminal. 

Most passengers choose to park here, and these lots are available on a first come, first served basis. It is great for short-term parking. Click here to see driving directions to the port.

All parking facilities have the same parking rates, and you can check them out below.

Accessible Parking / Handicapped Parking 

Disabled parking is available in all port parking areas. Vehicles using designated parking spots have to own a disabled parking permit, license plate, or an ADA placard. However, note courtesy shuttle buses are not wheelchair-accessible. Standard parking fees/parking rates apply to accessible parking.

Off-Site Los Angeles Cruise Parking

Off-site parking facilities offer the best parking value. If you’re one of the budget travelers, there are a few self parking options offered by the LA Waterfront that you might consider. The following parking lots can provide you with free parking services or very affordable parking spaces on an event day. Not only are they cheap but also located very close to the cruise terminal.

Hotels with Cruise Parking & Cruise Shuttles

The Park & Cruise Packages provided by various Los Angeles hotels are the best public parking alternative for everyone who wants to stay in the city before or after the cruise. Spend a night in a hotel, and you can get a free/discounted parking space for the duration of your trip and shuttle service to the LA port.

Below listed are the best and the cheapest LA hotels with cruise parking:

  • Best Western Plus San Pedro – from $149
  • Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor – from $110
  • DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Pedro – from $132
  • Vagabond Inn San Pedro – from $92
  • Monterey Inn Hotel – from $50

In Conclusion 

The Port of LA has several parking structures available to all cruise passengers. You can simply leave your vehicle in the on-site parking area or one of the more affordable off-site lots. Each off-site parking facility is a great choice since they are close and free or very cheap.

For those coming a day before the cruise, we’ve listed the Park and Cruise hotels that allow you to arrive a day earlier, get a good night’s sleep, and use free shuttles to the cruise ship terminal. This is a pretty good service, and we highly recommend it.
