Car was ready. Service was amazing. Drop off was okay. The shuttle to the airport very good.Reviewed Jul 23 2024

Pickup and drop off were overly long and confusingReviewed Jul 23 2024

Shuttle experience was good; not long to wait. Once on site of rental car, service was mediocre. Rep treated us like we were trying to take advantage and he kept repeating the policy even though we were not arguing the fact of paying extra fees. He just didn’t have the best customer service attitude. He chose the worst car when he found out it was a one-way rental; the car was missing a hubcap and was not the best comfort ride in the interstate.Reviewed Jul 22 2024

Unfortunately, we have to wait more than an hour to get a car, in a cabin without air conditioning with very unfriendly staff. When we finally got the car, it was very dirty. in addition, we received a car that was non-evaporative. The left rear tire was deflating and I had to fill it every day. when I called the office, they told me that they don't have a car available at the moment and that if I want another car, I should come to them and wait until someone returns the rental car. The least I expected was for them to apologize and bring me another car to the hotel where I was staying. Very bad experience.Reviewed Jul 21 2024

They just want to make extra money wherever they can from customers by charging for late drop off though when we picked up car we asked about return time. Very unprofessional. Never rent another vehicle from there and we told same thing to friends and family too.Reviewed Jul 19 2024

Due to Westjet airline strike I never actually got to use my rental. I was able to cancel my rental the morning off without penalty or cost and that was awesome since we already had the disappointment of missing out on our trip. I would definitely try to rent with Ace again though based on this customer service.Reviewed Jul 18 2024

There is no such thing as having an "appointment" to pick up a car. I showed up at my appointment time and had to wait for an hour because they didn't have any Cars. Additionally, I called corporate customer service to request to pick up the car earlier than my scheduled time to which two separate people on 2 different days confirmed, only to be told by a 3rd person on the Day of pick up that changing appointment times was against company policy. The phone number listed on the business website was sent to an automated Verizon message without a voicemail.Reviewed Jul 18 2024

All good. Bus to rental office could be better. I was required to take a second bus. Otherwise all good.Reviewed Jul 18 2024

Terrible!!! what started out as a $431.00 rental turned into a $809. charge on my credit card. They charge me for roadside assistance that I neither needed nor was asked if I did, I have full CAA coverage. Becareful of what you initial!! I was also charge a $250. for extra dirt. seems like they smelled smoke, although I do not smoke. I complained to head office with no success. Very bad business practice very disappointing!!!Reviewed Jul 15 2024

VERY disappointing!!! My 421.65 dollar rental turned into a 803.27 charge. they claimed I signed for a roadside assistance package that I would never take, I have full CAA coverage, They should ask you if you want it before they put it on and its part of the many initials I signed for. They charged me a 250.00 charge for extra cleaning, supposedly they smelled smoke. I do not smoke, but perhaps they found an empty pack in the back that my freind threw away. I complained to head office but the FLL office said too bad, it all stands. No wonder there was nobody waiting in line at ACE like there was at every other company line. Buyer beware, very bad business practice!!!Reviewed Jul 15 2024
