Cons:Poorest management and the stuff needs more trainingReviewed 6 Aug. 2020
review fromkayak
Cons:I reserved a Tahoe or equivalent but they gave me a Tacome truck with less space. The wait to check in and get vehicle was over an hour wait. The truck was dirty: the previous user had a dog in it and there was hair everywhere. The window have finger smudges on all of them and there was fish scales in the tail bed. I was definitely a lack luster experience.Reviewed 2 Jun. 2020

Pros:Staff was definitely friendly and welcoming and made the entire process effortlessCons:The car absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke. When choosing the SUV, I had only a few options, and I entered two different ones, both reeking. I just had to choose one and go with it, clearly keeping the windows down during all three days (despite the heatwave). The smell did not go away!Reviewed 21 Jul. 2019

Great deal, no troublesPros:I got a great deal through Kayak for a bigger size then I'd ever normally rent (standard) and was able to go from CMH to drop off at CLE which was really convenient and didn't get hit with exorbitant fees. I had a very early AM flight and the after hours drop off worked perfectly.Cons:Really all went smoothly-nothing to complain about.Reviewed 4 Aug. 2016

Very quick pick up and drop offPros:I liked the efficiency of the customer service. Great experience. I would definitely use this company again.Cons:The car did have an odor on the inside that was not enjoyable. I understand they check them quickly and probably would not notice it at that time.Reviewed 26 Jun. 2016

A lot of this could have been done ahead of time.Pros:Super easy drop off!Cons:Picking up the car was an ordeal. Flight got in late at night and I stood at the counter for 20 minutes while someone typed in all my info by hand... then I had to go to another counter on another floor to actually get the car. Took way too long, especially when I easily could have completed all this online earlier.Reviewed 26 Jan. 2016
