I have about a 30 minute travel time to get to a SP or MP. So a total of 2 hours max. for a 1 hour visit. Distance is not the issue, it is traffic and time for the travel part. I have to have at least fair parking. If the parking is bad I avoid these places like downtown or near Decarie Blvd. Price wise, I go with the average rate. Anyone that advertises or demands high fees are not for me.
My repeat rate is about 75% and 25% new places. Reading the reviews help steer you to the right places.
What are your parameters?
