The rental car was in good condition and the airport shuttle was fast.There is no way to drop off a car after hours and they do not explain or advertise this. No key dropbox or anything. The parking lot is locked and inaccessible between 10:30pm and 6am. Also, the phone numbers inside the rental agreement with Payless written clearly on the front direct you to the Budget renal company, who can't help you at all.

I was not able to get this car.I am unable to give a proper review because the rental company closed at 12:00 midnight and my delayed flight got in at 1:30 AM, because it was a hot deal, I couldn't get any refund, I wish there were a policy to help mitigate these situations.

Drop off sucked. It would be much better if we were dropped off at terminals instead of the rental center. We the. Had to lug everything on the tram and then to the terminal. This will keep me from using Payless again unfortunately.Drop off at terminals.

There were extra fees that were not reflected in the price quoted on Kayak. You need to take a shuttle to get to the site. It was easy but adds some time.

The rental spot is NOT at the airport (unlike what was advertised) but they still charge airport fees (around $20). I was hung up on twice trying to get “courtesy” shuttle. Long lines—should have cancelled and rented from one of the actual airport rentals spots. Will not be renting from them again.

They upgraded the car, although they did not have the purchased car availableHidden fees. They told us we were good to go and then hit us with an outrageous $450 cleaning fee. I'm not sure how they can charge such a high fee that was not in the terms and conditions

Windows on inside of car extremely dirtyDodge ChargerTthey did not have the intermediate car I requested and then charged me for the upgrade. The gas tank was not full, 1/2 tank when picked up. The inside of the windows were very dirty, I had to stop and buy glass cleaner and paper towels to clean them. Driving into the sun was terrible with the dirtiness of the windshield and side windows.

The car worked, and clearly the employees tryThe employees were kind, resourceful and worked hard. The car started, stopped and turned as expected.The location stinks-be sure to plan on the time it takes to get there from SFO. The building is hot and dour-I feel for the employees! The car was not clean. I would pay extra to get a car at the SFO rental center next time.
8.4 ExcellentJul 12 2017
The price speaksIt was cheap and the car was in very good condition.The rental location is not anywhere near the airport. Shuttles suck, use an uber.
6.4 GoodJul 11 2017
slow to get the carShuttle was waiting for us at the airportthe pick-up was slow. No one accompanied me to the car to do the detailed check.
4.4 OkayJun 12 2017
Poor shuttle pick up from airportIt should be clearly noted on the vendor website that this is an OFF SITE airport pick up. We waited 30 minutes for a shuttle pick up that fits 6 person max in a poorly maintained van. Additional customers were left behind for another 30 minutes for later pickup. The EZ rental car in other airport locations outside of San Francisco were unlike this branch in its service, location and overall appeal. We were deeply disappointed with our rental service at the San Francisco EZ Rental car. We would rather pay a bit more for a more convenient airport location and more piedessional service the next time we're in San Francisco.

No refund of depositThe car was fineI paid during pick up and extra 200 dollars as deposit, until today I didn't receive that amount and they never replied to my email messages.
5.6 OkayApr 23 2017
A comfortable late model carThe pickup drop off required almost 2 hours since the location is another 5-8 miles from where other rental car companies are located. And once at facility there are only 2 agents who take care of a long line. They push upgrades like the tolls for the bridge without explaining alternatives. You can pay cash everywhere and do online payment for Golden Gate Bridge. So avoid the prepayment if you are not crossing the bridge several times a day.
4.4 OkayApr 16 2017
Didn't have the car we reservedThey tried to make it right, they offered us a vehicle that would seat all 6 of us, but the cargo capacity was not sufficient. They were friendly, but in the end that's not helping us get on the road.Reserved a minivan and it was not available. We were not notified so we spent a couple extra hours getting to another rental place. Their location was pretty far from the airport. I am sure this saves them overhead, but the shuttle ride ate into the whole ordeal.

OkPrice was very cheapIt was like 20 minutes away from the airport. Cars were not always clean. Had to wait a long time in line.
2.0 MediocreJan 4 2017
Worst car company in the world!The car was cheaper than anywhere else. Now I know why. I got a car with almost 50k miles on the clock, it was a wreck and was filthy. I hired my car for 3 weeks, so when I went back and asked for another one, it was refused. The worst thing if all was that the windshield had never been throughly cleaned, nor the wipers ever replaced, so everything it rained, I was blind driving! I tried to replace the wipers, but no Autoshop carried them. I had to throughly clean the windshield and wipers daily as there were several snow storms and I couldn't drive blind. I bought rain x to help me, but this car was dangerous. Also, the engine made rattling noises like it was running on no oil, and the gearbox had a mind of its own. To add insult to injury, when I went to return the car, there guys had moved yards! No effort to tell me when I picked up the rental, nor to phone or email. I was gobsmacked! Never, never rent from here, this is known as Ez rent a car, Advantage rent a car and Europcar. Walking is a better option!

Overall it was goodService was good and car was clean. The only thing i did not like about this place is the milage limit policy they have in place for local residents. The limit is 150 miles per day. I only needed it to go to and from work while my car was in the shop so it wasnt a big deal but now i know not to rent here for my next so cal trip.

Hertz is fine....you guys SUCK. Less than 200$ for a van rental for a week?!..... Hertz didn't know what I was talking about. All these search engines.... probably owned by the same guy or group to make us THINK we live in a democracy.

They did not have a car for me - or for at least two couples who had arrived ahead of me. They did not have a car for me the following day, either, and just shrugged their shoulders and said "there are no cars". At that late date, I wasn't able to find a rental car at another agency, either. Given that I had made the reservation several months ago and paid upfront, I found this completely unacceptable and will never rent from them again.
