Almost Not Happy but
Pros: Was assisted by Cynthia who explained many things about my booking after I was handled by someone who was not as enthusiastic to help. Return was easy and simple and the agent was very kind (forgot his name)
Cons: when you come earlier than your booked time, you have to wait. if your flight comes earlier then i was told that I have to wait. again the agent Cynthia who stepped in to help was able to resolve and found a vehicle for me...

You get what you pay for
Pros: Price was far less than the majors
Cons: Didn't have the car I reserved, so had to switch to a black mini van. Gave me paperwork though for a red economy car, so had to go back and get correct papers. Upon returning can, printer was not working so it took 10 minutes to get a receipt.

Beater car rentals -- change their name!

Surprised
Cons: Got to the counter and was told a debit card was no good. Payless agent made a call and a third party offered me a rate twice as much as the contract price and a $200 deposit whe I refused they offered another $20 discount. I was insulted and walked away.

Very friendly staff, a bit of a wait
Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff, would definitely rent here again.
Cons: Only one person in the office checking in / out cars, so any time there's more than 2 people there you might be waiting 30-45+ mins to get checked out.
