    awful experience. had to wait over 35 minutes at 1 in the morning. every other car rental shuttle passed by at least 5 times. driver was nasty and did not help anyone with their bags. i tried writing a negative review on other thrifty site, but the website makes it difficult to post . hence the 4.5 star rating

    I would recommend against parking your car here, for the following reasons: #1 - We had our hubcap stolen off of our car while it was parked here. #2 - Located in a questionable neighborhood. #3 - Employee named Eliana who worked the check-in booth was significantly unprofessional, unfriendly, and unhelpful. She did not understand how to provide adequate customer service, and is the primary reason we will not be returning. #4 - We had to wait for over a half-hour to be picked up from the airport when we returned home.

    Two shuttle drives, excellent - James and a good sized hispanic gentleman, but gracious and most helpful to all the passengers.

    We had a very good experience with Thrifty Airport Parking. It was the first time we have used the service but it won't be our last time. Although I read quite a few negative reviews, Thrifty had been recommended by a friend, so I made our reservation, and was pleased that it all worked out very well. There was a 15+ minute wait for a shuttle at Terminal 5, but the weather was great and we honestly hadn't expected a shuttle to just be sitting waiting for us, so we didn't mind a short wait. Both of the drivers to and from the airport (Bruce and Emilio) were friendly, helpful and efficient. Our car was waiting at the front of the parking area when we arrived. The whole experience was positive and we recommend Thrifty to other travelers.

    Drop-off of vehicle was easy and the pick-up was prompt. Very efficient. They had the car waiting for us when we returned to their location. I would definitely use them again.

    As with every one of these places I've tried when booked through this kind of service there has been a problem with the amount to be paid when departing. It took 15 mins to get it right.

    Great service by Gerald. He attended to everything, including calling ahead and having our car ready and warm when we arrived. Great service.

    The drop off went real well - the shuttle time was about 5 minutes, and the driver helpfull. But - when we returned, the shuttle time was about 30 minutes (Waiting in the cold after returning from a warm climate) Then - at the pickup - ouch! Our car was covered with 5 inches of snow. We had to borrow a brush and clean it off ourselves. We were not prepared for that; and it took awhile. Drivers quite friendly, attendants not as much.

    lady at the counter was very unprofessional, I feel like I wake her up while she is sleeping. she didn't even said, Hello , Hi , Bye, Have good trip.. hope my survey will improve your service. Thanks Singh

    We called for our pickup as instructed. Every time I pressed 4 for the international terminal, it would not connect thru. I ended up calling several times. I could not get thru to a person or was not able to confirm my pickup. We had to wait approximately 45 minutes to be picked up. Needless to say this was a very disappointing experience with this company.

    This is a great place to park. The shuttle was right there to take me to the airport and I only had to wait about 5min on my return. The drivers were pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend this to others, and would use it again.

    You need to provide more regular service to terminal 5

    Waited (again) for an exceptionally long period of time prior to shuttle pick up. Literally 6 Avis buses, 3 Dollar buses and 3 Hertz buses came and went as we continued to wait and wait........

    Great service to and from the airport, great value for an off site parking. I will definitely recommend this to others and be using the service again.

    The shuttle drivers were friendly and very helpful with our baggage. The check-out attendant at exit gate was abrupt and rude.

    The counter staffs at the parking lot is very rude and she don't want listen to customer questions. We waited nearly 30 minutes in the parking lot to get our car. She didn't responded properly when I enquired about my car. Date of Arrival: 8/26 - 1:15 pm.
