Pros:

Car was what we needed and had great safety features.

Cons:

Pick up was slow. You had to wait outside and hope someone in the office would see you. Maybe adding a door bell/buzzer would help speed up the process.

3.6 Poor

Feb 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Not much. Efficiency of staff on car return.

Cons:

I booked the reservation 3.5 hours before picking it up. At that time, your computerized inventory told you that you had no full-size cars at that location, nor at the 3 other closest locations. So it was completely unethical to accept the reservation, even to quote a price. After 20 minutes and no progress, I finally agreed to accept a Ford F150. The seats are so high that the top of the driver's door is closer in height to the seats than on a true full-size car. I'm just over 6-1, but with short legs and the length of someone 6-4 or 6-5 from my hips up. It was an uncomfortable form of limbo that I needed to use to get in and out of the truck. It will take a few days for my back to recover. Also, the Ford 150 XLT (I think, maybe XLF) is well over 9 feet wide, and of limousine length, making it very difficult to park. Indeed, it didn't really fit in our driveway, either length or width, and we are not allowed to park on the street.

8.4 Very Good

Jul 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was fine

Cons:

I am always nervous about renting a car. There is always something a little damaged when I receive it. As far as I know there wasn't any problem turning it in. I just wish there would be more transparency of the documentation of the damage. Always take pictures before you leave the lot.

Receptionist was extremely rude. There was no car available for me even though a reservation was a made. She was quick to let me know there was nothing she could do for me. She didn’t even try and cancel for me but instead kept directing me to call a 1-800 number to cancel or else I would still get charged. Very rude lady.

Pros:

The staff went above standards to accommodate my rental needs. When the SUV had a problem with the tires they made sure to give me a car that would better fit my safety concerns.

Cons:

There was little to no trunk space in a 7 passenger suv. I was not aware that it was possible to not have a suv with no space for luggage.

Horrible service/ experience. Why no one called when I was Uber to get my car they were all out. They didn’t even cancel my rental. I still had to do it even though they didn’t had the van. Please consider other car rentals.

The car was filthy! Dirty, dusty, full of food crumbs, and terrible smell! My return time was 10am. I arrived by 10:30 and they charged me for an extra day no matter how I argued the issue! By the end I just wanted to leave! But an absolute racket! And then they wanted to charge me an airport fee when we are not at the airport and it’s just a scam! Do not rent from either Budget or Avis at this location!

Both the interiors and exteriors of the vehicles that we had were dirty and damaged. Rental cars were not serviced regularly. We went through 3 vehicles; one of them died in a parking lot while we were eating lunch. Roadside Assistance was going to take more than 2 hours to reach us for a jump-start; more contractors are needed to help rental customers. We then had to drive out of our way to switch out of the 2nd car.

Pros:

The pick up and drop off was pretty easy.

Cons:

Old food left from previous renter. This shows how they didn't clean the car beforehand. Also, the previous renter left their paperwork with all of their information in the glove compartment. I shouldn't be able to know the details of the previous renter. Again, shows how they didn't clean or look through the car.

Never Never Never Never again will I rent from this place! I was assigned a car that was dirty/had stains and smelled of human stench (after the car was left in the hot sun). the company hid stench with/ 4 pine scented hanging on the mirror to distract the stench). It was so disgusting when i got home i had to disinfected all the items i had in the car. Prior to returning the car I had plastic bag on the driver seat. This location scared me for life by renting me a FILTHTY Car............

I had no idea the locations for pick-up and drop off were not at the arrival and departure airports as requested. Had to get a taxi to take from airport to the p/u location and office was closed for 30 minutes once I arrived, in a pouring down rainstorm. The car was not cleaned and the tools in the cargo area were unsecured adn rolling around on our drive. The drop off location was also offsite and I had to have a friend meet me there and give me a ride to the airport.
