Pros:

I liked the ease of drop off.

Cons:

They called me at 8AM the morning I was supposed to pick up my rental and told me they did not have any standard trucks available and asked if I wanted a small vehicle instead. I told them I needed a large vehicle with space since I was taking a trip so the employee noted that I would take an SUV if there were no other options. When I arrived, I saw they had truck so I was excited. However, the employee offered me a suv. After inquiring about getting a truck, he went inside and spoke to someone for a few minutes before getting back to me and letting me know they indeed have an available truck for me. The employee told me he offered me an SUV because the notes said so, but when I spoke on the phone with Tucker I told him I wanted a truck, but if that wasn’t an option I’d take something that have the space capacity similar to the truck I reserved.

Pros:

The Tahoe drive very smooth. The staffs are courteous and helpful. Price is good although they tried to sell the collision waiver hard. The staff drop me off when returning the car. They save me an uber ride or trying to arrange a pick up after returning the rental. Would rent again at this place

Cons:

Car has not been through a good clean job on the inside. Still has footprints on the inside step up. Has some crumps at the bottom of the cup holder

The customer service could be better at the store. And they overcharged us over $50. They explained it was the basic charge and it will go down but it's been 4 days already and still too high. I've already called them twice. So I have to call them again. You have to go through a lot of automation on the phone before you can even ask for customer service.

I booked a full size SUV, a Nissan Rogue that would fit 6 people and 5 bags. I was given a mid size suv that would fit 4 and 1 bag. For one week that was unacceptable. They had no other vehicles than a mini van. I was given the mini can, but I had to pay an additional $20/day for the difference. It was not right.

Pros:

The reservation was easy and convenient to make. When I got there, I was a little hesitant with the small car that I was given, but soon came to live the fact that the Toyota Prius has amazing gas mileage. I drove approximately 1600-1700 miles and only paid less than $60 for gas for the entire trip. The Huntington Beach location was very accommodating and helpful, and I really don't have any complaints!
