I rented a car to be picked up at LAX. The morning before I got a confirmation that my car was available in Long Beach. I was unable to get help in fixing this error from Kayak, Priceline, or Hertz.

Selection of vehicles left a lot to be desired. No larger vehicle was available and again not much selection. Way too small location
10.0 ExcellentMar 14 2022
This was my first time renting a car. I was moving (I don’t own furniture yet) and needed a lot of space. The woman at the desk at LB Airport helped me talk through my needs and find a vehicle that was best for my needs and a return schedule that made more sense than what I had initially booked. She was friendly and patient through the process, and brought me closer to my needs. The car itself was excellent. Very clean and comfortable. I especially appreciated the safety features it had given I had an 8 hour drive in a very packed car. I also found myself impressed with the mileage of the car. The entire rental and return process was seamless and positive. I really couldn’t think of anything to improve on. The process was smooth and the counter worker did an excellent job helping me fine a car to fit my needs!

- the cruise control was not working, making the drive on the freeway difficult - the car was dirty & had an odor - there was something wrong with the tires/wheel alignment - road noise was high and car was veering to the side - I paid for a higher end car and it was not

NothingThey literally didn't have any cars available. Multiple people there had reservations but we were all told that they didn't have any cars and maybe someone would bring back a car, in which case we could get one. Had to cancel the reservation and get one from Enterprise instead, almost missed a wedding.

Our car had a dead battery and it was very hard to get a hold of Budget and Roadside services. It had cost me 91 euros in phone costs because I kept being put on hold and no one seemed to really be in a hurry to help me. It took all day for us to get a new car. We got the money for that day back but not for the phone costs. Don’t know if I would rent again through budget.

This location in Anaheim have the worst cars. They are unwashed, dusty and old with a lot of mileage. There are no cars to choose from. They gave me a car that had an engine light on so I informed them. The replacement car they were giving me did not have a license plate. I asked the lady if there are other cars. She said the only choice is another car of the same brand. The car isn't washed and cleaned and with a big scratch on the driver's side. I will have to wait for 30 minutes to clean the car. I asked them to give me another available car. They said I have to pay the rent difference since the only available car is a standard SUV. Since I did not want to pay the rent difference, I had to wait for them to wash the car and still it was not clean. I will not rent from this place again and will not recommend this place to friends and relatives.

I don't know who made the mistake of making the reservation very badly if the person who works at priceline or the person who gave me the car in budget because I rented the car to come to Utah and when I delivered it in Utah they told me that I had to deliver it In Long Beach California and they're charging me a lot of money

Excellent clean large vehicle- quick pick up and drop off!Easy airport access, fast check out with prepaid rental agreement. Fast check in when car was returned, both people were friendly and helpful.Didn't know about all the toll roads in Orange County, wasn't sure how to pay them without toll booths anywhere- had to call Alamo and ask about them as we had already followed our GPS on the phones and used them multiple times that first day- would have preferred to know about them before hand.

"I'll be back"When I dropped off the car, I told the attendant, "I'll be back. I like you guys", and she laughed out loud. Got exactly the car I wanted, there were no mechanical or other issues, it went very smoothly.There was some refuse in the car that the people who cleaned it from the previous renters, but it did not spoil the experience.

Kayak vs Alamo misalignment; huge truck vs low endThe manager found us a vehicle to take so we were able to leave the airport.We requested a standard sedan; we were told that even though we booked it before we arrived, none were available. We had to take the only feasible vehicle: a huge Ram pickup truck with no trunk or covered storage. We had to wait for a truck to be found and brought up. Thankfully it was not raining on our luggage in the truck bed. We were then told we could exchange the vehicle the next day for the car we wanted, at Santa Ana.

Check in and checkout were so easy. I was there for less than 5 min. They were friendly and courteous. The car was clean and I really enjoyed driving it (Nissan Altima). I would rent with Alamo again because of this experience.

The only negative was that when I called the pickup location to notify them that we were running late, they didn’t answer the phone and when I called back 10 mins later I was put on hold for over 20 mins before a human ever came on the line. Once arriving for the actual pickup though, it was very quick, efficient and friendly.

I wasn't able to get this car at all! Kayak booked it and yet Avis called me the night before we were due to leave to tell us they don't allow "one way rentals". (Where you get the car in 1 location and return it in another). Thank goodness they called, but when I went to rebook another car at that late notice, it was going to cost $1,200! We wound up driving instead which was a huge hassle and changed our entire trip... negatively. Kayak needs to fix this!
4.0 OkayDec 6 2021
Long line, took quite a while to get the car. Despite having a reservation, the staff seemed surprised to need to find a car for me.
6.0 GoodOct 26 2021
Went to pickup up van 🚐 (12 passengers) at 10am like I had reserved, but they didn’t had any, they offer a mini van, need a van so they said either I go pick it up in OC (30 mile drive) or they go get it but I would have to wait 2 more hours. Got out of there at 12:35pm… reservation is not guaranteed.
1.9 HorribleSep 26 2021
First off no one said anything about a credit card needed to be present. Then, on the AVIS website it states that if a person does not have a credit card they need to meet requirements such as over 25 years old, run a credit check, and $350 on hold. So all requirements were met and then Avis worked came up with something else saying that we don’t have a round trip ticket. What does that have to do with anything. Horrible experience. Imagine being stuck in the middle of no where with your 6 year old daughter with no car no hotel. I will never give Avis my business again. Or even attempt to!
1.9 HorribleAug 30 2021
I didn’t like anything they wouldn’t let me get my car.
5.9 OkayAug 19 2021
Good customer service at pick-up/drop-off. The car was in fair condition; the motor kept feeling as if it were about to stall at stepping off the accelerator and/or stepping on the brake, it did not seem clean, it was not equivalent to a Nissan Maxima (it was a Kia Optima).
1.9 HorribleAug 10 2021
They said the car had a full tank of gas and it had to be returned with one. Our vehicle had LESS theN a half tank. Not only this but it was $276 for a 1 day rental (way off quoted price). When I turned in the car at another location ( which I set up to do) I was told regardless of the gas situation I had to fill it up and deal with the other location for a refund. Not to mention a $200 hold for 4 days plus the charge for one day tied up over $500 for a 1 day car rental. When I asked the new location for another vehicle (minivan) that was cheaper i was quoted $1119.00 for a 3 day car rental ! I was told there is a large demand for rentals. That I understand, but price gouging is something else.
8.0 ExcellentJul 7 2021
Both facilities were onsite at the airports. No line or wait! We were out within 10 minutes. We were able to book the car last minute at the lowest rates comparatively with other sites, for the time period.

3.6 MediocreOct 10 2020
The car was clean and comfortable.The service could not have been worse. We waited over an hour before we had someone finally pick up the phone and send an airport van. On our return flight, we turned our car in at the appointed 4:00 time to find a note on the desk that said “please place the keys in the Dropbox. We had expected to get a ride to the airport, but that was not to be. We walked 20 minutes or so to the airport and barely made our flight. The communication with your renters needs some work.
3.6 MediocreFeb 8 2020
Nothing. Very unprofessional.Sat and waited for an hour at the airport and the shuttle never showed up. Called 3 times, never answered. Took a $10 Uber to the office, and two young unprofessional girls were there. “I was at lunch”. After we took the car and got to the hotel, they call us and told us they left keys in our car so they came and met us and switched us cars. What a joke. The replacement car was a crappy, smoke smelling Kia Soul, nothing like the commercial with the hamsters. I had never seen a rental car in such bad condition.
2.0 MediocreJan 7 2020
Typically it is the lowest. For a reason. Even then I would not recommend renting from here.The staff is untrained, unprofessional and many give you the attitude that they will probably steal your information. The prove of having insurance. In mist car rental agencies you just tell them the name is the insurance here you have to have a policy # and fill it out. Or they fir e you to buy insurance! Wtf!!! I’m getting the impression they are hiring the bottom feeders of tre employees with fishy background. All care more in their cell phone than try to help you to rent and leave the facility. I had a reservation d as Nd had to rebook at the car agency nearby. What a completely ware of time.

Stop cheeting people with the small print ,getting customers offering unlimited miles
3.2 MediocreNov 18 2019
Staff was helpful and professional.The car was beat up, dirty on the exterior and had damage to the front, dings and dents, and windshield wipers that need to be replaced, making driving uncomfortable and dangerous.

Price was okay.Service, car, cleanliness, vehicle performance, everything. It was a bad experience. Took a long time to pick up. Car had dents, missing panels, unclean, etc.

Absolutely the WORST. I will never use Ace again. The receptionist was rude and behaved as if we were interrupting her phone conversation.What in the world does unlimited mileage mean? This is false and misleading and a waste of our time. We went back to the airport and rented from Avis. Don't rent from Ace!

When to book a rental car in Long Beach

Average daily price per month
Rental car prices as pick-up date approaches
  • Ditch the unreliable public transportation and hop on a rental car, which is most comfortable and efficient way to explore not only Long Beach, but also neighboring Los Angeles and other destinations along the Californian coast. Head to El Dorado Nature Reserve for a picnic date, or drive through beautiful Naples Island in Alamitos Bay. The iconic Hollywood Sign is 30 miles away from Long Beach, and San Diego is a 2-hour ride away.
  • The two closest international airports from Long Beach are Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and John Wayne International Airport (SNA). Rental car offices at LAX are off site, but you can take the free shuttle buses stopping under the "Rental Car Shuttles" sign outside the Arrivals Level islands. Car rental services at SNA are situated on the Arrivals hall, between Terminals A and B, across from the John Wayne statue. The domestic Long Beach Airport (LGB) is closer but much smaller. Car rental desks can be found inside the Airport Ground Transportation Center, which is on the opposite side the terminal building.
  • The city of Long Beach is quite straightforward to navigate -- just watch out for reckless tourists during the summer months when the city center is more crowded. The stretch from Belmont Shore beach to downtown Long Beach has a sidewalk designed for cyclists, rollerbladers, and walkers, so be extra careful when driving there. Many LA freeways have one or more "carpool lanes" at the far left for vehicles carrying at least two occupants.
  • Traffic jams in the Los Angeles area are a given, but there are ways around them. Avoid driving from Long Beach to LA, particularly toward Hollywood, between 6:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., and then back to Long Beach between 3 p.m. until about 6:30 p.m. as those are the main rush hours. The San Diego Freeway (I-405) runs toward LA and Long Beach Airport, but you can take Crenshaw Blvd to help bypass the downtown gridlock during peak hour.
