6.0 GoodOct 13 2020
Pros: NothingCons: Impolite office staff, tied up on the phone and when free would not help immediately. There were NO cars available!
8.0 ExcellentJun 17 2020
Pros: Car was promptly available. Staff friendly.Cons: There was no hanger for clothes which I thought was strange - had to lay them on the back seat eliminating any area for extras.
3.6 MediocreSep 3 2019
Pros: The Riverside, CA staff were rude and rented me an older, dirty SUV with body damage. I dropped the vehicle off in Hurst, TX where the staff were friendly, but I had to wait over an hour to just return the keys. There were no additional fees, which was the one thing that matched my expectations.
8.0 ExcellentJul 26 2019
Cons: Didn’t like that l had to have a credit check and a $200 deposit put on my card since I prepaid for my rental. That information wasn’t shared with me when booking, I would have used a different method of payment.
10.0 ExcellentJun 18 2019
Pros: Friendly staff and we got an upgrade to a bigger car for the same price. Would definitely go back here to rent a car again!

Not Bad At allPros: They didn't have my car available when I got there so they gave me a free upgrade to from a Kia optima to a Ford Escape.

Also once I waived coverage they didn't keep trying to sell me on it.Cons: It was on the far side of town but it was much nicer than the closer avis on Magnolia so it was worth the inconvenience

Pros: Kayak sucks, Budget sucks, it all sucksCons: They could have had a car available for my reservation...they didn't have a car, and didn't seem to care!
8.8 ExcellentAug 26 2019
Pros: The staff was friendly an helpful
10.0 ExcellentOct 14 2018
Pros: Perfect van for our needs.
5.6 OkayApr 10 2018
Over ChargeCons: Our reservation was for one charge and the charge on our credit card was twice as much. We are disputing it with our credit card company. Not happy.
10.0 ExcellentSep 9 2017
Nice and fast.Pros: Girl at counter was very pleasant.
10.0 ExcellentAug 24 2017
Riverside Budget offers quick and easy returnsPros: Return was similarly quick and easy (but returned to a different location).
2.0 MediocreJul 30 2017
Pros: NothingCons: If you don't have triple times the rental of the vehicle to put on a debit card then it's not worth it. True enough it's being done wo a credit card but nonetheless there are other rental places that you can go to! Im glad I took my business else where.
8.0 ExcellentApr 12 2017
Pros: Agent very nice. She was working very hard on her own to serve everyone in a timely fashion. Didn't like that the office was understaffed and she had to work frantically.Cons: See above.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 10 2017
Pros: Outstanding service on short notice.
2.0 MediocreAug 12 2016
Disgustingly wreaked of cigarette smokeCons: Disgustingly wreaked of cigarette smoke & the Budget rep would not oblige us with a different rental although sprayed the car with febreeze for us. We bought Heavy Duty febreeze spray & febreeze vent inserts after leaving the car doors open for two days to air out..the smoke smell was still there. ironically there was a no smoking sign on the passanger window.

2.0 MediocreSep 30 2020
Pros: They did not have any cars they could give me. They said it was all sold out without helping me find an alternative.Cons: Be more helpful in finding solutions for customer instead of just saying we don’t have the vehicle, too bad, we can’t help you...
2.0 MediocreSep 1 2020
Pros: NothingCons: The Carr rental place decided to close early on Friday so I wasn't able to get my car rental. Had to end up calling Enterprise who sent me to another location that had NO CARS. I ended up having to drive to an airport location and ended up paying more.
2.0 MediocreAug 11 2020
Pros: The staff weren’t helpful at all. The location my reservation was booked was closed due to covid. There wasn’t anybody I could reach by phone. There was a sign on the door saying to go to another location. By the time I arrived, and waiting in line, they said they booked me as a no show. Again, no phone answers, poor customer service, when I asked for help with other locations that can get my rental, they told me to google it.Cons: Every single aspect of that experience could have been better.
2.0 MediocreAug 10 2020
Pros: Location ClosedCons: Everything.
10.0 ExcellentMay 23 2020
Cons: The service was great!
10.0 ExcellentSep 25 2019
Pros: The staff were all very professional.Cons: Everything went smoothly.
2.0 MediocreAug 16 2019
Cons: The local office left a voicemail for me the day before and minutes before they were closing to tell me they would not have the type of car I rented. When I tried to call back I got a machine. I called the next closest location and they also said they would not know what they would have until noon.
8.8 ExcellentApr 1 2017
Good ExperiencePros: Ease of retrieval in Riverside. Very friendly staff there. Value was excellent.Cons: Car little banged up with small dents and scratches. Interior was not vacuumed when picked up but staff caught this and cleaned right away.
10.0 ExcellentMar 22 2017
Pros: everything
4.0 OkayFeb 22 2017
Pros: That we got a car.Cons: The service guy took forever to take our information. The computers kept crashing. Trying to over sell insurance when he knew I was in a hurry. Did it with a debit card. So they needed a return flight and $300 deposit on a $80 rental. Most places want either or. It shouldn't over and hour to rent a car.
