NothingThey literally didn't have any cars available. Multiple people there had reservations but we were all told that they didn't have any cars and maybe someone would bring back a car, in which case we could get one. Had to cancel the reservation and get one from Enterprise instead, almost missed a wedding.

Service was great. I got my car within minutes.The rental uses a near by hotel parking for returns. It was hard to find parking.

Car price.Car choice was limited. Office and underground car location were not ideal.

NothingThey didn’t have a car available. Only solution offered was wait between 2-4 hours for them to drive in cars. I was 5th on the waiting list for cars that were previously paid for and reserved.

Pick up and drop off very inconvenient, plus paid rental in advance, when I turned in car there was an extra 100. charge. Make sure you fully read the small print. I'm a hertz gold member and wa as really suprised hertz did this. Never seen it before. I will def look into other companies in future.

The staff at the location we're great! I had an issue and some questions and corporate was horrible. Rude, short with answers and customer service was terrible. We will never rent from them again. How they get away with treating people in such a way is mind-blowing.Customer service. Taking the time to help their customers.

The people at the Budget counter at the Long Beach Airport were somewhat rude because they gave the car I had rented to someone else. Then I had to wait 20 min for another car, that was not cleaned.

Excellent clean large vehicle- quick pick up and drop off!Easy airport access, fast check out with prepaid rental agreement. Fast check in when car was returned, both people were friendly and helpful.Didn't know about all the toll roads in Orange County, wasn't sure how to pay them without toll booths anywhere- had to call Alamo and ask about them as we had already followed our GPS on the phones and used them multiple times that first day- would have preferred to know about them before hand.

"I'll be back"When I dropped off the car, I told the attendant, "I'll be back. I like you guys", and she laughed out loud. Got exactly the car I wanted, there were no mechanical or other issues, it went very smoothly.There was some refuse in the car that the people who cleaned it from the previous renters, but it did not spoil the experience.

Kayak vs Alamo misalignment; huge truck vs low endThe manager found us a vehicle to take so we were able to leave the airport.We requested a standard sedan; we were told that even though we booked it before we arrived, none were available. We had to take the only feasible vehicle: a huge Ram pickup truck with no trunk or covered storage. We had to wait for a truck to be found and brought up. Thankfully it was not raining on our luggage in the truck bed. We were then told we could exchange the vehicle the next day for the car we wanted, at Santa Ana.

AwesomeThe fact that the vehicle I reserved was actually what I got!!!! That never happens...I had to sign up on line for fast track tolls

Check in and checkout were so easy. I was there for less than 5 min. They were friendly and courteous. The car was clean and I really enjoyed driving it (Nissan Altima). I would rent with Alamo again because of this experience.

1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 26
First off no one said anything about a credit card needed to be present. Then, on the AVIS website it states that if a person does not have a credit card they need to meet requirements such as over 25 years old, run a credit check, and $350 on hold. So all requirements were met and then Avis worked came up with something else saying that we don’t have a round trip ticket. What does that have to do with anything. Horrible experience. Imagine being stuck in the middle of no where with your 6 year old daughter with no car no hotel. I will never give Avis my business again. Or even attempt to!
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 30
I didn’t like anything they wouldn’t let me get my car.
5.9 Okay2021 Aug 19
Good customer service at pick-up/drop-off. The car was in fair condition; the motor kept feeling as if it were about to stall at stepping off the accelerator and/or stepping on the brake, it did not seem clean, it was not equivalent to a Nissan Maxima (it was a Kia Optima).
1.9 Horrible2021 Aug 10
They said the car had a full tank of gas and it had to be returned with one. Our vehicle had LESS theN a half tank. Not only this but it was $276 for a 1 day rental (way off quoted price). When I turned in the car at another location ( which I set up to do) I was told regardless of the gas situation I had to fill it up and deal with the other location for a refund. Not to mention a $200 hold for 4 days plus the charge for one day tied up over $500 for a 1 day car rental. When I asked the new location for another vehicle (minivan) that was cheaper i was quoted $1119.00 for a 3 day car rental ! I was told there is a large demand for rentals. That I understand, but price gouging is something else.

Both facilities were onsite at the airports. No line or wait! We were out within 10 minutes. We were able to book the car last minute at the lowest rates comparatively with other sites, for the time period.

3.6 Mediocre2020 Oct 10
The car was clean and comfortable.The service could not have been worse. We waited over an hour before we had someone finally pick up the phone and send an airport van. On our return flight, we turned our car in at the appointed 4:00 time to find a note on the desk that said “please place the keys in the Dropbox. We had expected to get a ride to the airport, but that was not to be. We walked 20 minutes or so to the airport and barely made our flight. The communication with your renters needs some work.
3.6 Mediocre2020 Feb 08
Nothing. Very unprofessional.Sat and waited for an hour at the airport and the shuttle never showed up. Called 3 times, never answered. Took a $10 Uber to the office, and two young unprofessional girls were there. “I was at lunch”. After we took the car and got to the hotel, they call us and told us they left keys in our car so they came and met us and switched us cars. What a joke. The replacement car was a crappy, smoke smelling Kia Soul, nothing like the commercial with the hamsters. I had never seen a rental car in such bad condition.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Jan 07
Typically it is the lowest. For a reason. Even then I would not recommend renting from here.The staff is untrained, unprofessional and many give you the attitude that they will probably steal your information. The prove of having insurance. In mist car rental agencies you just tell them the name is the insurance here you have to have a policy # and fill it out. Or they fir e you to buy insurance! Wtf!!! I’m getting the impression they are hiring the bottom feeders of tre employees with fishy background. All care more in their cell phone than try to help you to rent and leave the facility. I had a reservation d as Nd had to rebook at the car agency nearby. What a completely ware of time.

Stop cheeting people with the small print ,getting customers offering unlimited miles
3.2 Mediocre2019 Nov 18
Staff was helpful and professional.The car was beat up, dirty on the exterior and had damage to the front, dings and dents, and windshield wipers that need to be replaced, making driving uncomfortable and dangerous.

Price was okay.Service, car, cleanliness, vehicle performance, everything. It was a bad experience. Took a long time to pick up. Car had dents, missing panels, unclean, etc.

Absolutely the WORST. I will never use Ace again. The receptionist was rude and behaved as if we were interrupting her phone conversation.What in the world does unlimited mileage mean? This is false and misleading and a waste of our time. We went back to the airport and rented from Avis. Don't rent from Ace!
