Weird weird budget sitePros:They gave us a free upgrade because the smart cars transmission was so bad it continually lulled and would kill us on the highway.Cons:They asked questions I've never been asked when renting a car. They needed to know my destination and demanded my work telephone. We got budget specifically because I knew their other driver policy. Spouses are free. He went with me to get the car and we officially listed him as a second driver. When he returned the car full of gas in perfect shape the people at the desk said we were banned because he wasn't allowed to drive the car. Truly avoid this budget location. It's not predictable and not well run. This is a locally run budget rental. Don't judge them all by this one.Reviewed 24 May 2017

Pros:I liked the fact that I received a hybrid vehicle for my long trip. The gas savings were great.Cons:Both at pick up and drop off the door had a sign that the attendant would return in a few minutes. The car, when received was externally very dirty and had what looked like tape residue on some of the windows. This made inspection difficult, so much so that I missed a chip in the windshield thinking it was a dead bug. Luckily, it had already been reported. Additionally, I had reserved a mid-size car and received a compact. Since it was a hybrid and I was going on a long trip, I didn't complain, but I'm pretty sure that I over paid for a compact car.Reviewed 22 Oct 2019

Cons:Waited over an hour for a car that smelled like cigarettes had holes in the seeds and was absolutely disgusting. Do you have one person working the counter and 12 people in line.Reviewed 30 May 2021

Cons:It was not clear to me that there was an offsite Budget, who I actually rented from, and a onsite at the airport Budget. The man in charge was very helpful to honor what I had and made clear that it would be $5 more per day. Which was fine.Reviewed 12 Sep 2019
