Not very happy with my rental experiencePros:The counter agents were very nice and the cars are super close to the terminal.Cons:There was a very loud clunking sound that came from what I assume was the transmission. It was disconcerting - I was afraid that I would be stranded 25 miles north of the airport. Also, I guess I should have been more knowledgeable, but I was charged a whole day rental fee for being 30 minutes later than the time the counter agent reminded me that I was turning it in. He did not mention that that was beyond the "grace period" The person to whom I gave the contract didn't say anything - the charge just showed up on my credit card.Reviewed 28 Dec. 2015

Not Clean, Not Clean!!!Cons:The car seemed as if it hadn't been cleaned from the last occupant. I found paper wrappers and other detritus in the back seat and trunk. The windows and side view mirrors had been poorly cleaned and were a big distraction driving on the road.Reviewed 19 Sep. 2016

Never AgainPros:The agent at the Santa Rosa Ave. facility was phenomenal. He tried to change my flat tire and got me a different vehicle when he realize we didn't have the key to unlock the Lugnuts on the Volkswagen.Cons:I rented my car at the Santa Rosa airport facility. A walk around of the car was not done. I was handed the keys and told the car was out the door and to the left. It was dark and there was a huge parking lot to my left. I had to press the door lock on the key fob to even locate my car. The next morning, I had a flat tire, so could not return the vehicle on time, after waiting two hours for roadside assistance and eventually canceling it. I was charged an extra day and a late return fee, which I was assured would be refunded. I tried to call the manager at the Santa Rosa airport facility, but could never reach a person. I was repeatedly transferred over to the national reservation line, where I was treated rudely and abruptly buy all four agents I spoke with. The final one, was the worst. I asked to speak to his supervisor and he told me that he was the supervisor. I was appalled at the treatment and the service I received. In desperation, I finally called a Hertz agent at the Santa Rosa airport, knowing the counter was directly adjacent to the Budget counter, and asked that the Budget agent call me. I never received a call. I will never rent from Budget againReviewed 7 Nov. 2015

Easy to find drop off at nightPros:I liked that it was easy to find, night drop was available.Cons:Being late night drop off, would’ve made more sense to me a little better instructions about what papers are being dropped off. Also, a sensor had gone off about a brake light bulb that went out en route to my destination. No one was available to inform about this, so a space on the paper that gets turned in would be a good idea. I improvised and wrote it on the sideReviewed 12 Aug. 2018

Horrible customer service in Santa RosaPros:I was surprised how nice the Ford Focus wasCons:Customer service representative at pick up in Santa Rosa could have cared less. I asked for a drop off in on place and he put another on the contract without telling me. It was very inconvenient. I called to complain and there was nothing they could do and they offered no help or restitutionReviewed 13 Mar. 2017

Pros:Quick, easy and as simple as it should be.Cons:I spoke with the representative at STS and confirmed that there wasn’t a fee to drop the car in San Fran at a different location. I picked the car up and noon and told him we were escaping the fires and dropping the car off today. We go to San Fran a couple of hours later. The office had closed at 1pm and the valet at the hotel told me there was a $25-$35 charge?Reviewed 28 Oct. 2019
