Stayed open until 11:00 pm. We reserved a mid-sized car but then were told we had to rent a luxury car for more money. Staff was friendly & efficient but I’m not sure they were truthful.Reviewed Jan 31 2024

It was good overall from the moment I picked up the car and the moment I returned it. The only thing that really didn’t work well for me was the amount of fees added to my rental which almost doubled the amount. So much taxes and fees which making me change my mind on renting from the airport and probably pick it up elsewhere.Reviewed Dec 20 2023

TERRIBLE! After landing waited 2 1/2 hours in line to be waited on. Tried to give me a car when rented SUV, finally got it-was dirty inside. Talked in to getting prepaid tolls, never was on a toll road. Told agent where was going and he said should do the toll thing-huge mistake. By time everything was done I was in the rental car place over 3 hours!! Will never rent from budget again!!!!Reviewed Sep 27 2023

I had to wait in line for 1.5 hours to pick up my car. They ran out of the car I reserved so I had to accept a larger vehicle and spend more on gas.Reviewed Sep 26 2023

2 and 1/2 hours in line to pick up the car. Impossibly long. Unacceptable.Reviewed Sep 25 2023

My only annoyance was a "change oil required" message on the dashboard. As it turned out the car had been recently serviced but the computer not reset. Unfortunately, we couldn't find this out over the phone so had to waste half a day of our holiday going to the nearest Budget location. Otherwise, we were very happy with the car. Message to Budget: make sure the car's computer is reset after servicing!Reviewed Sep 19 2022

Pros:Pick up AWFUL! Drop off was easy.Cons:PICKUP: It took 2 1/2 hours to get my car due to the LONG line at the Budget rental at SEATAC. Budget was the ONLY car rental place to have a line. Too few people working the desk (it varied from 1 to at most 3 people). Plus, a long time per each customer (averaged 15 to 20 minutes each. I timed it)Reviewed May 12 2021

Pros:The style, cleanliness, storage, efficiency on fuel and hands-free hook up to mobile device.Cons:Tinted windows four front windows(Driver and passenger)Reviewed Apr 13 2021

Pros:The workers tried to help.Cons:Their rental desk in Seattle was closing at 1 AM, but I was not made aware of this during my rental, so I almost missed the opportunity to pick up my key. Once I had my car, I was unable to leave the parking lot since the barricade/gate was across and the power was somehow turned off to that portion of the exit. I sat in my car for nearly an hour while the staff and security worked to find a key or way to manually remove the barricade or find another way out of the rental car area. Eventually power came on and they were able to release me and my rental car at about 2 AM.Reviewed Feb 17 2021
