I’ve been on the road almost nonstop since NATSO Connect in Nashville, and have gotten to see several great locations. Danny’s Big Rig Resort in Phoenix, Arizona, was among my recent stops. It is a beautiful location, and I’d love to take you on a virtual tour.
Colorful signage makes it easy to find what you’re looking for.
The truck wash stays busy.
This is what welcomes drivers as they enter from the back of the operation where they have parked. One Google reviewer wrote, “This place really does have a ‘resort’ feel to it. The exterior landscaping and inside luxury are top shelf!”
This location has charged for parking since 2002, and the majority of drivers that have left reviews on Google welcome the paid parking. One reviewer wrote he is “cool” with the charge. “Security is everywhere, keeping us safe and truck parking is level. There is plenty of room to back into spots,” he said. Another wrote, “My stop of choice. Secured parking! You almost always find a spot here at Danny's.”
Customers wanting to soak up the Phoenix sun can take advantage of the outdoor seating area.
This is a great stop! If you’re in the area, stop by. And, if you want to see more, there are great photos customers have posted on Google.
