Yes, I've used quite a few.Hello dear Tesla owners
Have you tried the Tesla destination chargers in Hotels?
are they really free?
Do the hotel owners give you grief/ask higher price?
Are they usually working/available?
many thanks for your answers!
I am doing high mileage every week and spend a couple of days in hotels per week. There are a few with charging stations in the vicinity where I work at a reasonable price ( same price per night but a few miles further away)Yes, I've used quite a few.
It's even influenced my decision to stay at a particular hotel before.
They are free, usually they are for guests of the hotel, however. I suppose if you went to have a coffee inside without being a guest you would still be fine.
Are they usually working? Well, that one I cannot be too confident in giving an answer because I have come across some that aren't or are giving a reduced level of charge. They are not as reliable as superchargers but "usually working" is probably a fair way of putting it.
Why are you asking?
I’m confident in saying that the Tesla Model 3 Long Range can do a lot better than What Car suggests. I’ve been averaging 4 miles per kW since I’ve had mine without any attempt to alter my driving style. If I’m gentle 5 miles per kW is quite doable. I expect this to drop a bit in the winter.I am doing high mileage every week and spend a couple of days in hotels per week.

so If I could save £250 a month on fuels just by using these, then it is a reason to prefer a Tesla and replace my diesel ( already got a Leaf for my wife )
That been said, I got a bit concerned about Tesla range after reading - few minutes ago really - the What Car real range review as my destination is 170 miles from home plus distance to hotel, I need something that will have at least a comfortable 250 miles range

have to say though that these free chargers are quite an incentive
