Car reeked of Marijuana SmokePros:Price was good, and liked the ride of the Toyota CamryCons:The car smelled like pot when I picked it up. When I went into the front desk to notify the staff, they just blinked and said they'd note it on my damages form. They didn't offer to switch cars and they didn't even apologize to me. I made a comment again that I was disappointed with the smell of smoke when I dropped the car off, and the Manager who checked me in ignored my comment.Reviewed Nov 17 2017

Pros:Returning the rental was easyCons:The cleaning of the car was a joke. This is the third car from budget that I’ve had where the staff just ran it through the car wash while the inside looked messy. Also, the billing is wrong. The bill was more at the end than what was quoted.Reviewed Aug 15 2019

Awful carCons:The wheel alignment was off. The steering wheel was at a 70° angle There was a rip in one of the tires The headliner had a big stain for a beverage . I asked the attendant to give me a decent car since I was going to drive approximately 700 miles. I was told this was a very nice car.Reviewed Dec 26 2016

Customer Service SketchyPros:Once I finally located the Budget rental car spot in the parking garage, the gentleman was very helpful, I got a very nice car, and the process was simple.Cons:When I arrived at the airport, the Budget rental car desk was unmanned, and there was no signage directing customers to another location. Had to use discovery learning to find the Budget kiosk in the parking garage. I returned the car at 6:20 am and the Budget kiosk wasnt open yet, even though the sign said it would be open at 5 am. When I signed for the rental car, I told them I would be returning it at 6 am. I was told no problem, someone would be there. There wasn't, and because I was expecting a Budget rep to be there, I didn't have a pen to fill out the rental folder with mileage, date or FULL tank. I had to drop the car keys and rental agreement into the box without filling anything out, and HOPE that they charge me correctly. That's not how I prefer to do business.Reviewed Dec 11 2018
