Though gentleman at counter was very nice he needs more training. Almost an hour to checkin on a reservation He couldn't release car he had prepared for me due to computer issue so went to have another cleaned. Smell of cleaning solution never went away over rental resulting in red eyes and coughing. Mud on seat and noise from right wheel well with motion. My absolute worst rental experience.

The location was understaffed and had some unruly and distasteful renters, but the manager was handling everything with aplomb. When we returned the car, he remembered us, apologized profusely for the prior delays, and gave us a discount. Class act! Thanks, Moises.
