I only gave this horrific place one star because there is not an option to rate it at ZERO stars. Everything about Thrifty and their customer service is TERRIBLE, AWFUL, HORRIFIC, POOR, SUBSTANDARD, INFERIOR and the list can go on and on. I tried renting from them twice and both experiences were awful. This experience involved a young man at... More

Facility is nice a big. Ample parking. We paid a max of $12.00 one day...think this is the max it can be. Nice bathrooms. Could use more food options but overall very pleased.

Spent two days at a function at the center and it is one of the best centers all year. With over 500 participants, they keep everything moving and actually keep the rest rooms spotless! My only issue is the $15 to park if you are there most of the day.

I've had to come here to pick up my packet for the A1A 1/2 marathon, and it's a very nice convention center. Very large. Lots of parking. Though you have to go through a gate where you need to show ID since it's the same entrance that the cruise port uses so everyone in the car should have ID, and... More

Wow! What a great way to spend a day, there were literally hundreds of the most amazing cars I have ever seen under one roof. From 1909 all the way to 2015-there was something here to drop the jaws of anyone. The Batmobile, Clarence Clemons last wheels-and absolutely everything in between. A must.

Went to the FL Keys with friends. We flew into FLL and had a can rental at Thrifty. The FL PlatePass program is a scam between the state and rental car companies including Thrifty. Yes, I said scam. And, yes, I read all the info about the program and what it meant. Here’s my specific experience. I arrived at Thrifty... More

Love the billfish fountain out front. Attended a week long convention March 2015. Great audio visual capabilities. Spacious and multi-purpose rooms - some with views of the cruise ship port. I really liked the water coolers instead of bottles of water. Food and beverage service was what I expect at a convention center. Overall friendly staff. Clean restrooms. Walked from... More

The exhibition hall as well as food vendors are great. Nice variety of food and choices that the convention center puts on. However the parking is horrible. The labeling and signs inside do not adequately direct you to to convention center bridge. And the parking space filled up by 1 pm which is most unfortunate for those that come in... More
