I was rented an excellent car, with very few miles on it. It was a great experience. It was the cheapest price I could find, but it could have been cheaper.Reviewed 2023 Oct 09

When we arrived at the Budget counter there was 21 people in front of us. Would have been over an hour to get waited on. Had no choice but to cancel and book with Hertz. No wait and excellent service.Reviewed 2022 Oct 30

Pros:Pick up/ drop off was quick and easy.Cons:The car got a flat tire. I called the emergency roadside number and was told it would be at least 3 hours before somebody could get to the car. I put the donut on the car and spent the next 2 hours talking to customer service and getting rerouted to another person/number before I finally just gave up. Drove the car on the interstate with a donut on it over an hour back to the Budget office. Nobody at the desk so just left the keys in the drop box.Reviewed 2020 Jul 21

Pros:Didn’t really like anything, except the fact that the car didn’t break down.Cons:I had to get three different cars, before I found one that smelled OK. The first two have been smoked in, and when I went back for the third I got some lip from the guy at the desk. I got into the third car, it had been smoked in as well and had not been cleaned. This time they had to use some cherry air freshener, so It smelled like fruity cigarettes. How nice. Also, the car oil change light was on. They did comp my gas, which was nice, but I would rather have paid for my gas and not smelled cherry cigs.Reviewed 2020 Jun 21

Pros:Honestly, nothingCons:We never even got the car. I reserved it for my workers to pick up. I made sure i put it in one of my guys names and paid for it with my card. When they got there they couldnt get it because i wasnt along! The girl at the desk was not helpful at all. Now im thankful for Uber tho!Reviewed 2019 Jul 15
