Pros:Staff was friendly.Cons:Thrifty over book their cars. There were more than 50 people waiting on cars and they said it would take 2-4 hours to get a car. I ended up having to cancel and book a higher priced car on another agency as I couldn't wait 4 hours to get a car.Reviewed 18 Feb. 2021

Cons:I had a truly terrible experience across several aspect of renting from this Thrifty/Hertz. For one, there was a line of ~30 patrons trying to check out vehicles when I arrived, with exactly one agent handling that line. The line alone took over an hour. Second, the car itself was the cheapest Hyundai they make, a far cry from the Ford Focus that the website promised, and the rear view mirror fell off seconds after I got in the car for the first time. Third, although I confirmed with the agent at the counter that I would be charged for two days for the times of my checkout and return, and followed those times exactly, I was charged for three days without a clear notification that the terms had been changed. I waited for an hour to talk to a representative in the billing department, who told me to return to the rental location and try to find to the agent who had promised the two-day rate. If that were even possible it would be a multi-hour nightmare given how understaffed they are. I would not rent from this company and location again, and urge you not to either.Reviewed 6 Jul. 2020

Pros:Difficult to understand and had to ask his supervisor for information several times. The drop off was incorrect.
