The rental agent engaged in a "bait and switch". He fraudulently upgraded our SUV, calling it a 50% reduction and only charging us the "taxes". He blamed the $79 charges on local taxes and fees of 39%...He lied, plain and simple. The upgrade was approximately $39 a day, for two days. That's the $79 he charged us. Our original rental was for a medium SUV. He said that their vehicle, in that class, was a KIA Soul. He offered a Mitsubishi Outlander as the upgrade. The reservation for a medium SUV was for a KIA Sorento, or "similar". The Soul is a compact SUV. His actions were definitely a company scam as we heard another agent say the same things to another customer. They want you to think that you were getting a "break" on the upgrade, when in fact you were adding $79 in charges to your original reservation. There were no $79 in taxes. I will never use Payless again. Their employees conduct was borderline criminal.Reviewed 23 Sep. 2022

We were in and out quickly. It was easy to get the car. The car, however had issues. It has been a long time since I had or rented a car with manual windows. Even though the key had buttons for locking and unlocking the car, they didn't work. Doors did not automatically lock while driving. We had to take extra care to make sure the car was locked whenever we parked. Our joke was that the hamsters were having heart attacks anytime we went up a hill (car not very powerful). For what was supposed to be a mid-sized car, this was more like economy.Reviewed 21 Sep. 2022

Dirty car. Key did not have the FOB so had to manually open. Charged for mid size and gave a compact car and would not refund the difference. Rude check out guy!Reviewed 22 Aug. 2022
review fromkayak
Staff were all really nice and friendly. Cars are old, higher mileage and dented with dirty glass. Our first car had non-functioning air conditioning while the weather was unusually hot — we had to interrupt our travel and return to exchange for another car. Also, the hours of the facility are not open early enough: we had to return the car the night before departure and hire taxis back to the hotel and to the airport in the morning.Reviewed 21 Aug. 2022
