9.6 ExcellentAug 31 2020
Pros: Great staff. Easy, fast pick up and drop off.Cons: If it could have cost a little less??
5.2 OkayDec 2 2019
Pros: The car was fine.Cons: The problem was they tried to charge me double price and still charged me more then I was quoted.
10.0 ExcellentJul 3 2019
Pros: Helpful and friendly staffs.Cons: Complementary shuttle.
4.4 OkayNov 12 2018
Pros: Convenient location.Cons: Dropoff was unfriendly, accusatory. Asked for a gasoline receipt for proof of fillup even though the tank was full.
6.8 GoodJan 9 2018
Odd vendorPros: Car was usual Budget quality and cleanliness thanksCons: Vendor suggested that had we arrived one minute after 4, we would not have been able to pick up the rental and yet made no effort to call the contact number to advise that the 4M pickup was the very latest possible. Also seemed to have trouble verifying the license and commented that I might need my passport. Having rented from Budget many times with the same license, I was surprised.
2.0 MediocreMay 30 2017
Pros: NothingCons: Horrible customer service
6.0 GoodMar 26 2017
Pros: The price. It was cheap to pock it up in Ventura and returning it in Los angeles. Also, the staff was very kind.Cons: The car was dirty. When i picked it up it has a cup of coffee and candy wrap inside.
2.0 MediocreJun 9 2016
OverchargedCons: The agent didn't tell me I would be charged for mileage on top of my normal charge. Very unusual & I won't rent from budget again unless the charges are reversed.
7.6 GoodFeb 20 2016
Pros: Friendly staff, decent carCons: We did not realize that insurance was not covered in the original price listed, so we had to make a last minute decision to include insurance and this doubled the cost. It was stressful to have to make that decision on short notice and the price was much higher than we would have even considered going in.

2.0 MediocreNov 29 2020
Pros: Wasn't open at scheduled time of drop off. Had to leave car out front of return location. Waited on hold for a total of close to 3 hours to be hung up on..also instructed to call road side assistance to help. They did not answer either. If this is sue to holiday weekend. Then dont schedule business and rental returns..
6.8 GoodNov 14 2020
Pros: The two women who worked in this area were horrible, especially the one with the accent. On the other hand, the gentleman who worked in this area was better to deal with. I thought that I was always greeted with boredom and disinterest. These people really need to be trained on basic common courtesy and professional couttesy!Cons: I did not like going to this place of business because of the true lack of professional courtesy. I felt like I was a burden to them just trying to get my car that was already on reservation. I have recently rented a car from Avis/Budget and the gentleman at the desk was fantastic. He was extremely friendly and worked with me over the price quoted to me on the general phone line. This person made you feel appreciated that you were renting a car from him. No one at Hertz ever made me feel this way or work with me. Maybe the Hertz employees needs to be trained by this gentleman at Avis!!!!
2.0 MediocreJul 15 2020
Pros: They didn't have a car for me and I was screwed.Cons: I will never use them again.
2.8 MediocreJan 8 2020
Cons: Guy was rude, the car promised was not what was being offered to me. When I asked for another vehicle he gave attitude. Car was dirty and had an odor. They did not offer a replacement. Guy was on a personal call during transaction. Had rude comments made during drop off.
10.0 ExcellentJul 18 2019
Pros: yes
9.2 ExcellentJun 3 2019
Pros: drop off at after hours at SBA was very easy.Cons: I had to wait quite a bit to pick up the car even though there was no other customers in line.
2.0 MediocreApr 16 2019
Cons: Car was not available. Car was dirty, staff were lazy and unhelpful, have not received deposit.
3.2 MediocreJan 22 2019
Pros: My car reeked of cigarette smoke. There were no other cars available at that first location so I drove an hour with the windows open to another location to get another car.Cons: One of the agents made a mistake on my contract and closed it out in the middle of my rental. So when I tried to return the car, it took about 30 minutes as the agent couldn't find me in the computer. He ended up renting the car to me again and then closing it out. Was not a smooth transaction.
2.0 MediocreApr 25 2018
Credit card?Pros: It was cheap.Cons: Very hard to book, online set up is confusing. I was willing to pay 30 extra for being under 25 years of age but then was told I wouldn’t be able to pick up the car unless I had a credit card under my name even though I paid with my debit card and they still took out the money and I haven’t gotten my refund. I do not own a credit card and it was very confusing to have to call different numbers to ask for my 60 bucks back. Waist of time. Would never use again.
2.0 MediocreApr 8 2018
Cons: This location was closed when I went to pick up my rental. There hours are listed till 7pm and they were gone at 6. Had to rent a vehicle from another company.

6.0 GoodAug 12 2020
Pros: Easy pick up and drop offCons: I informed Enterprise about the car having a colony of ants that made their way inside the vehicle the entire three hour drive to our destination and I was told that it happens if the car is sitting out for long or not being rented.. They said it’s happened before so I question why this would happen again.. If this wasn’t the first time, they should have thoroughly inspected the car before renting it. Also, I mentioned that my friend had a minor allergy to cat fur because every time she got in the car, she would start sneezing and her eyes reddened. Thankfully she was mildly allergic so we were able to get some allergy medicine but it just made me question their overall inspection and cleaning process with their vehicles. The car itself kept glitching on us and kept showing an error message about a sd card being removed. We tried calling them about it but the automated message would say they were closed when their website said they were open. It was bothering to be asked what we wanted from them to make up for the inconveniences... We only wanted a car that wasn’t infested by ants and was thoroughly cleaned and inspected before renting out to people.
2.8 MediocreJun 10 2020
Pros: NothingCons: They were not clear about my days after being upgraded and then over charged me for keeping the car too long when I was told I’d have a the car for a full week
10.0 ExcellentJul 13 2019
Pros: Awesome staff in Ventura.Cons: Honestly the only thing that could ha e been better had nothing to do with the branch, only the malfunctioning vehicle which is not their fault.

Super friendly and helpfulPros: Awesome, super helpful, efficient, and courteous staff. They went out of their way to ensure I was taken care of and were respectful of my time and patience. I couldn't give them a higher rating.
6.0 GoodNov 4 2016
The agent was friendly but had to wait a long timePros: The two gentlemen working were doing their best and were friendly and trying to be proactive. I overheard them calling future reservations to let them know it would be a wait as they were short cars. I would have appreciated that call.Cons: I had to wait quite a while 45 min to get my car. I also had my baby with me. I rented a car seat as well which they didn't end up having on site and had to get it from another location- so another wait.
9.6 ExcellentSep 7 2016
Great customer servicePros: Employees were very helpful and accommodating. Was taken care of on a Friday night before Labor Day despite accidentally making a reservation at another location. Was given a free upgrade, too.

NO INVOICE RECEIVEDPros: Nice car.Cons: Did not receive an invoice for anything. No email to confirm. No statement for reference.
4.0 OkaySep 18 2018
Store manager is dishonestPros: NothingCons: During pickup the manager tried the old lines that give rental car companies a bad reputation. "We don't have that car in stock, but we have an upgrade available (Bait-and-switch method). Because it was booked less than 24 hours we can't guarantee a car is in stock, it's in fine print. (Liar, I read fine print, it's not there. That's Dollar's responsibility, not mine). If you don't want it than you can just cancel." It was late in the day and my Uber ride had already left, so I had no choice other than accept. Then the "upgraded" came out dirty and damaged. The car smelled like smoke and was covered in bugs.
