There is a new parking gate and charging kiosk for the garage so ther are offering special rates for the SoCC attendendees instead of the regular hourly rates. Those that are staying overnight have the parking programmed into their room key. The attendees have to pay $5.00 for the day if the attendee does not have a room at the Cape Rey Carlsbad. You can download the barcode from the below link (please save the image on your phones). There are also some printed parking validation slips at the Front Desk for attendees to pick up on the way out. They just have to identify themselves as being with SoCC. If paying in Cash for the parking, please see the Front Desk; and if paying with a Credit Card, flash the barcode at the parking payment kiosk and pay with credit card.
