Pros:drop off was easy.Cons:The budget in at this location is the worst! No one was there at my scheduled pickup time. When someone finally arrived, no cars were clean. Had to wait 40 minutes for my rental to be cleaned. They gave me a car that smelled like cigarettes. Also, only 1/3 employees were wearing masks. Also, the car was surprisingly kinda old. The employee told me not to worry about the sensors claiming a problem with the air pressure. idk. awful.Reviewed Jan 4 2021

Pros:The drop off was terrible. I did not receive my rental at the time stamped on the contract and I also had to wait one a line of. About 5-6 cars to get processed before mine at drop off. Then the guy completing the drop off charge me for an extra day saying that I was late by about 20min. I explained all of this to him but he still was being difficult. So I just left.Cons:It’s always nice to deal with people and not not machines acting like people.Reviewed May 19 2020
