Cons:

No one was at the location when I needed to drop off the vehicle. It was extremely unprofessional for no one to be manning the desk during spring break. It’s one of the busiest times!! I needed to get back to the airport right away so I couldn’t sit around and wait for this person to return from the hour long lunch break. In addition there wasn’t even a voicemail set up when I tried to call. And no drop box for the keys. I’ll never use this location again.

Pros:

Staff was very unfriendly and was supposed to go to lucnh from 1:30-2:30 according to sign but took lunch from 12:00-1:00 instead and there was no sign to let customers know even though the staff knew we were coming back to drop rental off. The office inside when he finally showed up when we went inside was full of fire ants by desk area and all over seating area and we got bit up by the fire ants it is infested disgusting. I would say for sure something needs to be done about this place and also when we received the rental it was not clean there was trash in the door area and it was not vacuumed. I have two kids with asthma and my husband had open heart surgery last year and with this COVID going on they should being cleaning a lot better and they would not help us at all get another vehicle or give any money back!!!!

Cons:

You could start by cleaning vehicles, being there when you say and sign says so, calling customers back and a refund would be nice for me with what I went throug on our last time with you guys!

They did not have a car for me. They suggested that I call other locations to see if they had any vehicles. They expected me to try to find a car at one of their locations. They said they'd call if a car came in but I never heard from them. I finally found a car with a different company.

Excellent customer service. The woman at the front desk was the best. If there was anything wrong she would turn any bad experience into a positive. Smiles, jokes. She’s someone you always want to meet when you first come into the store.

I will never return back to this location. Tracey needs to be removed from this job. She was so mean, I have never ever experienced anything like that at all. She failed to explain anything to me.

Pros:

The vehicle operated well and was comfortable for our needs

Cons:

The pick up and return was very difficult. When I originally picked up the vehicle very little information was provided to me. The lot for the business is extremely small making any pick up or return challenging. When I went to return the vehicle I could not even get into the lot. I had to park across the street and wait approximately 20 minutes to even have the opportunity to pull into the business. While I waited , I attempted to call but was either placed on hold immediately or sent into a phone tree that resulted in being able to leave a message only.
