8.8 Excellent4 Jul 2020
Cons: I would've appreciated picking up the vehicle on a full tank of gas. I didn't like having to get it, being on a time schedule then having to stop to fill up the vehicle. It was at half a tank when I picked it up.
10.0 Excellent15 Jun 2020
Pros: The car was great. And the employees are friendlyCons: Nothing
7.6 Good8 Jan 2020
Cons: The inside of the front windshield was not cleaned very well prior to pickup.
3.6 Mediocre3 Sep 2019
Cons: The customer service was horrible. It took me 30 minutes to simply pick up a vehicle. The vehicle was different than what I was expecting and then when I went to return it, it was very confusing where I was to leave the car. All around the experience was not worth it and I won’t be returning.
2.0 Mediocre6 Aug 2019
Pros: When picking up the vehicle, we found that it was unavailable despite having it booked.
8.0 Excellent14 Feb 2019
Cons: Closed for lunch between noon and one....
5.2 Okay24 Jan 2019
Cons: Called ahead for reservation yet when I got there they did not have the vehicle. HAD to upgrade so cost was way higher. Also I CALLED about extending and the cost was crazy high. Your 1 800 number was terrible as well.
2.0 Mediocre22 Oct 2018
HorriblePros: They cancelled itCons: They cancelled it last minute! Ruined my plans
5.2 Okay16 Oct 2018
My pickup was scheduled for a time the office was closedPros: To be honest, the things I liked were overshadowed by the terrible experience I had when I picked up the car. No customer should be treated this rudely and with disrespect as I was. I'm a CFO and if the company I worked for treated it's customers as rudely as I was treated, we would soon be out of business.Cons: My pickup was scheduled for noon and the Torrance, CA office was closed from noon to 1pm. This wasted an hour of my time. Nowhere did it say on my reservation that the office was closed during this time. If it did, I would have surely shown up at 11:45 to pick up my car. What was more frustrating was that there were two people there behind the counter when I arrived. One of the two was rude when I arrived to pick up the car telling me they were closed until 1pm and told me to "look at the sign" showing the office hours. They could have helped me but they just didn't want to. Not only will I never use Hertz again but I will go out of my way to advise people to not use them as well..
6.0 Good5 Aug 2018
Cars not availablePros: I received a call minutes before I went to pick up the car to inform me they did not have the large SUV. They would replace it with an Explorer. I explained to the lady that I owned an SUV so it didn’t make sense to rent if I was getting the smaller SUV. The whole point to rent was to have a large SUV not the same. She called me few hours later to let me know they found one. I was one of the lucky ones! Went I returned the SUV, three clients were being told that they did not have cars. I spoke to one of them and he told me he had been told he had to go to the airport. The three clients were told the same. Two of them had small children! They weren’t even offered a ride to the airport! Your not “exactly” add came to my mind as I witnessed what transpired. I guess I was one since I got the call and gave them the opportunity to find me a vehicle. Thanks, W. Jonas 310-864-2110Cons: The clerk was friendly and courteous. No complaints there. The car was very clean and new! Thank you!

Pros: Very helpful staff and very quickCons: They were good
8.4 Excellent11 Aug 2020
Pros: Kamal was great! Very helpful and friendly. The other man that helped me was very helpful I think he was a manager wearing a gray enterprise shirt. After hours drop off is easy and very convenient.Cons: Pricing is a bit steep for type of car I got.
2.8 Mediocre31 Dec 2019
Pros: Location of facility was not bad.Cons: Low staffed location, took very long to get vehicle. Did not get my compact car which I wanted "to easily navigate LA streets. Was put in a pick up truck which had stains on driver seat and front / rear carpets. Drop off was horrendous. No one present in car return. Was told by multiple staff that someone was outside at podium to receive returns and there wasn't. Was forced to be rude to staff members in order to have someone do my car return. Will not rent from this location again.
4.8 Okay30 Dec 2019
Cons: Long wait to pick up vehicle, with no attempt to organize check in process for the 30+ people crowded into the small waiting room. Staff were unapologetic and not terribly professional
8.4 Excellent29 Jul 2019
Pros: Friendly staff, easy pick up easy drop offCons: The pick up truck was dirty
7.2 Good24 Jun 2019
Cons: My complaint is that they charged an extra $2. It’s the principle not the $2. My online reservation said total $37.99 plus tax and in the end I was charged 39.99 plus tax. If they get an extra $2 for every customer, that’s a lot! And why should I book it online if the price is not honored?
10.0 Excellent23 Apr 2019
Pros: The staff was great and they even followed up with everything after I left. Would recommend this place to another personCons: Great experience nothing bad to say. Quick, great price, convenient and easy

Avis FailPros: Nothing, because I didn't get a car. When I arrive they told me they were out of cars and wouldn't have been any back in for two days. When I asked if they could help me find a car at another location they said they could not.Cons: I didn't like anything about it because I didn't get to go on my vacation because I didn't get a car at Avis because they were sold out even though I had a reservation. Avis sucks

6.0 Good29 May 2019
Pros: Great car.Cons: It took FOREVER. Could Budget be less efficient? I was behind a Romanian with a Maryland driver's license and Budget couldn't cope. Then my agent slow walked my forms. Then I got ferried to another facility where I waited while the car was cleaned. This was during my lunch break from work.

misleadingPros: Easy to cancel the reservationCons: The rental car office was closed at the time I was scheduled to pick the car up. I reserved a minivan, but they only had a full van.
4.8 Okay22 Jul 2017
Cons: I got to the budget drop off in Torrance at 1:30 in the afternoon and there wasn't anybody around. I waited 20 mins. And the guy showed up. Maybe they need more than one person working there.
2.0 Mediocre12 Feb 2016
Do not book budget at Santa Clarita new hall ranchPros: Nothing. Well wait, actually journey was playing when I walked in, so there's that!Cons: Location did not have cars when arrived. Waited two extra hours. Had to book directly thru enterprise. Missed flight connection. Uber and taxi fees to and from this location twice to try and pickup.
