Car was dirty, dusty and smelled like old rental car smell. Maybe it’s been in rotation too long. 37K miles. Sounded like an old taxi cab in NYC when I hit a bump or I applied the breaks. Will definitely stick to Sixt or Hertz. Much more reliable car quality and experience. Saving a few bucks wasn’t worth it in this case.Reviewed Apr 11 2024

Good service & value. Exit was very confusing: green lit “customer” exit was not accessible. Red lit gates were the real exit, unclear at night.Reviewed Oct 29 2022

My biggest complaint would be the run around I got with the pickup to where I had to go back home and come back cause it wasn’t told to me until I got there that I couldn’t use my debit card and I needed to go thru a credit check before I could rent the vehicle. Good thing it was sorted out with the unfortunate raise in the cost but afterwards everything was fine, even though the time wasted was stressing initially.Reviewed Oct 25 2022

Cons:It was actually a bad experience. I inadvertently selected your downtown location. My intent was to utilize your airport location but your airport representative would not allow me to pick the rental car up from the airport without paying a $133 additional fee even though cars were available. Needless to say, that was extremely unfair and inconvenient. Being a traveler from out of state, I know nothing about downtown Cleveland but was forced to go there. In addition, your rental rates have become extremely too high (overall). Nearly $75.00 for a basic car is unacceptable. I feel cheated. Going forward, Budget will be my last choice.Reviewed Mar 31 2021

Pros:Drop off was easy.Cons:Budgets counter was closed and was directed to the Avis counter. Took awhile to get someone to help me , they tried to upsell me to an SUV, guess that is expected, but the worst issue was the car was rank with cigarette smoke. We fabreezed that car every time we entered and exited it. HorribleReviewed Oct 19 2020

  • Am I able to pick my own Budget car rentals in Cleveland, or will I be assigned a vehicle by the company?

    When you first make your reservation with Budget, you will be asked to select the specific car model that you would like to receive.
