10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2020
Pros: When I got to the South Lake Tahoe rental location they had a small car for me. Monday morning and lots of cars to go out. I asked for different, larger car and they were very happy to find me and my wife another vehicle. It was cleaned and ready to go in a matter of 15 minutes and we were very happy.Cons: They did great and we recommend Enterprise to all our friends.

2.4 MediocreMay 31 2018
Budget discriminated against me because I have a service dog.Pros: The ladies at pick up were wonderful, helpful, and apologietic about the car not being the best for such a long journey.Cons: The car has nearly 40k miles on it and is worse for the wear. It rattled and had stains on the back seat. Upon drop off, the woman at the desk informed me that I would have to pay a $259 cleaning fee because “she was not cleaning that up”. I had just had her car cleaned. I left, went to CVS, got a lint roller, and rolled someone else’s dog’s hair out of the car (the hair was short, my service dog does not shed). She made me feel awful, repeatedly, until my husband finally showed up and informed her that my dog is a licensed and registered service dog, at which point she said she “supposed she’d waive the fee, even though the car wasn’t in great shape”. This car was in better shape than when we received it. She is doing serious damage to the Budget brand just because she doesn’t want to do her job and clean cars.

Pros: Was her name Monique? At the Tahoe branch, she was professional and also very personable, with clear communication upon picking up my car. She made it a great experience.

FriendlyPros: The car was in nice condition.Cons: Service was good. Staff was friendly and efficient.
6.8 GoodJan 31 2017
Pros: The lady working at the desk was very efficient and fast. She was also apologetic about the lack of car availability.Cons: 1) There were zero cars available when I arrived at the time of my reservation. I had to wait over an hour for a car to show up. 2) It was quite difficult to find the rental store's location, as there were no signs anywhere. 3) The cost seemed excessive ($130 for a 4-hour drive to the Bay area).
2.0 MediocreFeb 16 2016
No carCons: Wasted our time going to pick up a reservation that was made an hour earlier. Customer service representative made no effort to fix the situation and was visibly annoyed and walked away as I was asking her if she knows of other options because I took a cab to get there assuming that I had a car because of the confirmed reservation.
