10.0 Excellent2020 Jan 28
Pros: Being this was my very first experience using Alamo, I was impressed with the ease of reserving, picking up, and returning a rental. Every staff member I encountered was professional, helpful, and courteous. The initial price of the rental was better than I had expected. I look forward to using Alamo again!Cons: The initial payent of the rental was low, but he final payment upon return was $20 more because we forgot to fill the tank! Overall our rental experience was excellent! My advice: be sure to gas up before returning the vehicle!
9.2 Excellent2020 Jan 24
Cons: Only suggestion / request would be to have the windows cleaned before rental. They were covered with the road salt solution which created a lot of glare from headlights at night. Not being used to the vehicle or the location, it was bit of a driving hazard.

10.0 Excellent2020 Jul 31
Cons: A Cleaner car.
5.2 Okay2020 Jun 01
Pros: Staff was fine, relatively easy check in and drop off.Cons: There were drink and food stains in the car which means it was definitely not cleaned. Normally this would just be a little level of concern but when a company pledges to sanitize their cars during a pandemic and doesn’t even do the bare minimum to clean it, it’s very very concerning and frankly a lie. We had to sanitize it ourselves out of fear.
9.2 Excellent2020 Feb 20
Cons: They didn't have the style of car we requested. It worked out because we got an upgrade, but I don't understand why these companies advertise cars as being available only to have them not be. Overall very good experience though.
10.0 Excellent2020 Feb 04
Pros: The staff member, Lyudmila, was amazing. One of the best customer service representatives I have ever had to talk with. Went above and beyond to help my wife and I. I feel as if she deserves some kind of bonus or something. Hire more employees like her. The other employees that were working were also very friendly and helpful. Thanks to her, and the other employees, I would definitely recommend budget, as well as renting from you again.Cons: Honestly, nothing. Everyone, and the whole rental process, went great.
5.6 Okay2020 Feb 03
Pros: Staff was friendly and efficient.Cons: Car was dirty. There were crumbs from previous rental that hadn’t been vacuumed. It was disgusting. I was late for meeting or I would have asked for a different car.
8.8 Excellent2019 Sep 30
Pros: Drop off was super easy and fast.Cons: Picking the car up - at least a 30 minute wait for 6 people to be handled before me. 3 staff were working - it shouldn't have taken so long
10.0 Excellent2019 Sep 09
Pros: We were given a very comfortable car based on our needs by the fleet manager.
2.0 Mediocre2019 Aug 21
Cons: Waited in line for 30 minutes, still had 10+ people in front of me. Only one agent working. Canceled the reservation, went to Hertz.
9.2 Excellent2019 Aug 15
Pros: Car had all available safety tech options!Cons: No one offered any info on how we should record the imperfections before leaving the parking. Had to call CS after leaving the lot to record a big scratch.
8.0 Excellent2019 Aug 13
Cons: The price was a bit high

2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 26
Pros: Pickup and drop off went fine.Cons: The seats were awful. The reason I rented the Full Size SUV was to have a better seat for a long drive The KIA Sorrento did not have ant adjustments fo the seat angle or lumbar and were like sitting in a wood chair.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 01
Pros: No cars available. Still charged cancellation fee and $100 charge for who knows whatCons: Everything
4.0 Okay2020 Sep 28
Pros: The staff at the location were very nice.Cons: The wait times for a reservation they were about an hour. Then the fact of them running out of cars for their reservations that were made a week prior. I called customer service to ask to change the drop off location to the airport across the street which it was supposed to be, he said there was nothing her can do and if I wanted to talk to someone about it, to go to the location (mind you they were closed on Sunday) and speak with them. Then he said thank you and hung up. I rented a pickup truck for 2 days. Then I had a reservation for a SUV for a week. When I took the truck back to pick up the SUV, I waited close to an hour for them to tell me that I was out of luck since they were out of cars. Asked me to keep the truck, which was not ideal since I had two car seats that I needed to fit in the back. Kevin was very apologetic about the incident. I rested a car a week prior and the same issue with them running out of cars happened then as well. Which I had a reservation. I went to another rental company and ended up paying 3 times the cost because Hertz can barley handle their reservations. This isn’t great customer service.
7.2 Good2020 Sep 20
Cons: The office was busy when I picked it up. The agent had to clean the car. It smelled like someone had chain smoked with the windows up the entire rental. It was a nice car, drove well and they were good about me extending the rental for a few more days.
6.0 Good2020 Sep 08
Pros: The car was fine and got very good gas mileageCons: During both pick up and drop off of the rental vehicle, one of the two agents on duty had to leave, despite customers waiting in line, to “drop off and pick up keys“. I did notice the agent ( at drop off ) had one key when he left his post with 3 to 4 people waiting in line.

6.8 Good2018 Jun 26
Timing is importantPros: The price was right and a real bargain compared to rental at the airport.Cons: However, I was booked and sold a pickup time at the closing time of the Enterprise agency office (6pm). This would not work--I called Entrprise and they said no way. I am glad I called, but sad that I was allowed to book an unmanageable time. I had to cancel.
4.0 Okay2018 Jun 24
Rental was mediocrePros: The price was good.Cons: The car was dirty inside and out. The car smelled of smoke. The back tire left rim was dented and made toe tire look wobbly, so we had to stop and get it checked.

5.2 Okay2019 Oct 13
Pros: The staff at Buffalo changed my rate on an upgrade instead of just an additional $10. I was very pleased with the drop off for the manager was able to correct the mistake that was done.Cons: The whole process of dropping off at a different location was good but please pay attention to the pickup location. Make sure you are getting what was quoted to you and save the email with your confirmation information. I questioned it before I left, but it wasn’t corrected but thankfully it was on the other end.
6.8 Good2018 Dec 26
Dirty carPros: The car itself was a hybrid, so very economical. It was a nice drive also and had Apple CarPlay.Cons: The car I was given was switched at the last minute between the desk and the pick-up kiosk. This particular car looked like a family of 4 had a food fight in it, and it reaked of deodorizer and cigarette smoke. The stains were kind of embarrassing, but I didn’t have time to deal with the hassle of calling and swapping it out.

10.0 Excellent2017 Aug 27
Just a great experience!Pros: Hello, after a bad flight experience and going through the canceled flight experience with United, the rental car experience was a true experience of how old school customer service showed its face. I found out my car rental was booked in downtown and not the airport. Debbie listened to me and quickly called to get approval from her manager to pick up the reservation at the airport. She was awesome!! Give this woman a big promotion and raise!!
6.4 Good2017 Jul 25
Pros: Dropoff was quick and easy!!Cons: Pickup took me 1 hr and 30 mins in line, after midnight for 5 mins paperwork in the frontdesk.

Cons: I booked my rental for a 2 a.m. drop off Friday at the Cincinnati Airport. It never said that there were any issues with my booking. When I arrived at 12:45 a.m (early) Dollar was closed and the outside gates were locked. Not only that, but the rental office didn’t open up again until Monday. I was charged additional hours and additional days!! How can this be okay? It was not possible for me to return my car. Also, my car was very dirty inside when I picked it up which is additionally concerning with COVID.
