5.2 OkayApr 2 2019
Cons: The vehicle was filthy outside and inside. Cup holders had dried food in them, mud and sand on seats and human hair throughout the vehicle. My teenage sons were appalled - which is says it all. I complained and asked for another vehicle, but there weren't any in the size we needed. Disappointed.
6.8 GoodMar 19 2018
Rental okayPros: Car was ready on timeCons: Car was dirty
7.6 GoodOct 8 2017
Easy rentalPros: The low rental rate, the ease of the rental, pick up and return.Cons: The car was not clean nor washed ahead of time. The attendance just took a wipe and did it while we were there. It was not a thorough cleaning as I would have liked. And it would have been nice to get a nice clean washed and vacuuumed car.
10.0 ExcellentNov 24 2016

10.0 ExcellentNov 8 2016

Customer servicePros: This was my first car rental ever the car I had pick out online was no longer available but they were able to put me in something a little more roomier for the same price.
