Pros: The Budget employees in Reno were great - friendly, knowledgeable, helpful.
Cons: We had a problem with the low-light beams on the car that made driving at night in the mountains difficult. We pointed it out to the staff upon returning the car - think the beams were maladjusted

Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful and the price of the car rental was 50% of what it would have been if I had rented it at the airport location.
Cons: I didn't like that the only way to get the 5 miles to the Reno rental car location from the airport was to take a taxi which cost $16 each direction. I wish that had been made clear to me when I rented the vehicle. Also, the wash bay was broken so the car exterior was very dirty which was unfortunate but understandable. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and helpful and the vehicle was fine.

BUDGET CANCELED MY RESERVATION LESS THAN 2 DAYS BE
Cons: An employee in the Budget/Avis rental office at the Sears at Meadowood Mall in Reno called me less than 2 days before my trip to tell me that my reservation was canceled because they didn't have enough cars. She told me I was the 11th person she was calling and there were more on the list. I had reserved the SUV three weeks in advance at a rate of $391 for five days. I had to scramble last minute to get a new reservation (this was for Christmas weekend), and the best rate I could get (off site from the airport) was $548, an increase of $157. The manager at the off-site Enterprise where I ended up renting said that the Budget/Avis place at the mall canceled people on a regular basis. BUYER BEWARE - don't rent from the Budget/Avis office at Sears at Meadowod Mall in Reno!

Good car rental but sticker shock
Cons: I was charged $10 for 'late return'. I returned the car within 24 hours of renting it (for a one day charge) but I guess since I estimated the return time as earlier I was charged more.
