Pros:Front desk guy is awesome. Super friendly guy and the value is impossible to beat.Cons:The interior of the car was filthy. There were french fries everywhere from whoever had the car last which means that during a pandemic they aren't even cleaning the cars between rentals. I felt unsafe the entire time.Reviewed 1 Mar 2021
