6.0 Good31 Mar 2021
Cons: No one was at the location when I needed to drop off the vehicle. It was extremely unprofessional for no one to be manning the desk during spring break. It’s one of the busiest times!! I needed to get back to the airport right away so I couldn’t sit around and wait for this person to return from the hour long lunch break. In addition there wasn’t even a voicemail set up when I tried to call. And no drop box for the keys. I’ll never use this location again.
6.0 Good22 Mar 2021
Pros: Staff was very unfriendly and was supposed to go to lucnh from 1:30-2:30 according to sign but took lunch from 12:00-1:00 instead and there was no sign to let customers know even though the staff knew we were coming back to drop rental off. The office inside when he finally showed up when we went inside was full of fire ants by desk area and all over seating area and we got bit up by the fire ants it is infested disgusting. I would say for sure something needs to be done about this place and also when we received the rental it was not clean there was trash in the door area and it was not vacuumed. I have two kids with asthma and my husband had open heart surgery last year and with this COVID going on they should being cleaning a lot better and they would not help us at all get another vehicle or give any money back!!!!Cons: You could start by cleaning vehicles, being there when you say and sign says so, calling customers back and a refund would be nice for me with what I went throug on our last time with you guys!

No Receipt EmailedPros: Price was so much better than airport. Ease of picking up and dropping off car. Location of rental facility. I was told that fuel would be $1.99 per gallon when I returned the vehicle.Cons: I haven’t received an invoice for the rental showing the fuel cost. The car wasn’t clean. I took it to a car wash and had them clean it.

Pros: Yes. Yes.Cons: They gave my car away and had nothing for me.
2.0 Mediocre24 Feb 2021
Pros: NothingCons: We Ubered there to pick up the car and there was no one there. We wasted time and money.
2.0 Mediocre4 Feb 2020
Cons: Once we arrived to pick up our reserved car, the employee informed us there were no cars to rent. It would have been nice if we received a call prior to walking all the way there.
9.6 Excellent4 Feb 2020
Pros: Drop off very quick and easy.
2.0 Mediocre14 Aug 2019
Pros: Nothing. I canceled due to no carsCons: Everything. They had no cars at my time of pick up and no idea when they would have them. They suck at there job.
5.6 Okay11 Feb 2019
Pros: Staff was nice. They just didn’t have any cars when we got there. Said it would be 3 hours or I could upgrade. We had planned on have a full size. I had to upgrade to an suv that cost $100 more then plan on.Cons: Just having a a car for me or budget making up the difference.
2.0 Mediocre2 Jan 2019
Pros: Only thing good was a vehicle was available.Cons: Not the class reserved & was over $130 more than promised. Outside of the vehicle was covered in dirt, dings & missing body panels. Inside was not cleaned properly & smelt like cigarettes! The representative at St. Petersburg was very rude to me. Mark the vehicle full of fuel when it only was half. Having to waste my time going back inside to correct & go fill up when I had an appointment to make.
2.0 Mediocre21 Oct 2018
Cons: Reserved for convertible- was told none was available. This is I spite of reserving it several months in advance. No attempt to try to find another vehicle in surrounding areas. Asked to call central reservation number for budget - they were no help at all. Did not even offer to reduce rates as promised vehicle was not available. Very poor service.
10.0 Excellent16 May 2018
Pros: Very easy drop off at the beach not far from where I was staying.
6.0 Good26 Mar 2018
Pros: Got the keys right away, was able to drop the car off after hours.Cons: After getting the keys, was told to remove the sunpass from windshield since I had my own and didn’t want the additional charges. I couldn’t remove it- no one was around to help. I saw a man that worked there and asked for help, then yelled for help but he ignored me and kept walking. Also, if you leave your vehicle there you have to park it across the street.... so walking across 6 lanes of fast moving traffic is a little unsettling.

Pros: The staff was great and the price was right. Thanks.Cons: Nothing, I got exactly what I paid for with no hassles.
2.0 Mediocre17 May 2021
Pros: The staff was not friendly at all. The lady, Tracey, was extremely rude and disrespectful. She has no people skills, and is against LGBTQ and showed discrimination. I will never return back to this location. Tracey needs to be removed from this job. She was so mean, I have never ever experienced anything like that at all. She failed to explain anything to me.Cons: The way they treat they’re customers.
10.0 Excellent22 Mar 2021
Pros: Quick easy pick up and drop off
4.4 Okay2 Nov 2020
Pros: The vehicle operated well and was comfortable for our needsCons: The pick up and return was very difficult. When I originally picked up the vehicle very little information was provided to me. The lot for the business is extremely small making any pick up or return challenging. When I went to return the vehicle I could not even get into the lot. I had to park across the street and wait approximately 20 minutes to even have the opportunity to pull into the business. While I waited , I attempted to call but was either placed on hold immediately or sent into a phone tree that resulted in being able to leave a message only.
2.0 Mediocre14 May 2018
Worse service in my lifePros: NothingCons: The way I was treated. My flight was a little late and I arrived 7 minutes after they closed and the employee was extremely rude and would not rent me my car. She was very unprofessional.
5.2 Okay26 Apr 2018
Pros: Rental car price.Cons: Contracted for a 5 passenger compact car, got flim flamed into a 4 passenger sub compact car which was useless for our purposes. Parked the sub compact car in my drive and ended up using our personal car for a short vacation. Didn't use the too small rental car at all for our trip.

2.0 Mediocre15 Mar 2018
They don't know what the words customer service mean.Cons: When I made a reservation online I asked for a small economy size car. I am 5' tall. I can drive most cars as long there is tilt wheel and the the seat can be pulled forward and theback can come forward far enough. I have never been to a car rental location that had only 2 cars to rent. This is in St. Pete Beach in March. Yes it is a busy time of year but that is why I made a reservation. They gave me a Nissan Pathfinder which is a Mid size SUV which seats 7 people. I was the only one that would be using the car.The car was very nice and since they said that was all they had, I took it. When I got home I called them and said I am going to need a different car as it was too big. I needed 2 pillows to drive it. They said they didn't have any other cars but may have more in a couple of days. When I called back, they said once again that they had no cars but that I could drive to the Tampa airport 45+ minutes away to exchange it. I did go the airport and got another car but there was no apology, no what can we do to make it up to you, nothing. I say go to Enterprise. They know what customer service means!
10.0 Excellent29 Jan 2018
Balllliiiiiin!!!! Got a car for $20 no limit on miles whaaaa!?!?Pros: I'm pretty sure this is the best deal I've ever gotten with a rental car. I needed to drive the kids around so they could get mooon pies and other dollar snacks, so I decided to get the cheapest most uncomfortable car I could so they wouldn't want a ride- but lone behold...they still did. It helped my pocket out majorly- thanks dollar rental I'll be back!Cons: The cars engine seemed finicky. BUT! It was fine and I drove 400 miles with no problems.
