I purchased a used SUV and wanted a good cleaning done of the interior of the vehicle and of the exterior and I took it to Bailey’s for the complete detail package.

The good:

– the interior looked and smelled much better
– the dash and hard surfaces were cleaned and shined and a lot of the staining had been removed.
– The employees that I interacted with were nice and polite.
– they offered to rinse my vehicle off for free as it had collected dust in the time it had been sitting in the lot.

The bad:
– when I got home and removed the temporary paper floor covers I realized my interior floor mats were missing (not a big deal as I planned on replacing with rubber mats).
– When I folded down the rear seats I found they had not cleaned under the seats and there were years worth of trash and dirt still there (see attached picture).

Conclusion: For the price that I paid for the detail I expected a more thorough clean. If you decide to have a detailing done here I suggest you go over the vehicle thoroughly before you leave and make sure there were no oversights.

Customer service was not friendly, they did not look or act like they wanted to be there at all. Any other time I have got a rental car I was provided a choice. Although there were several cars in my size for available I was told I needed to take the one I assigned. They seemed very short staffed. I had to track down the person who checks in the vehicles then was charged for gas when I returned it with a full tank. I had to wait for a more than 20 minutes to get this refunded.

these folks are always super friendly and on the ball. I’m always impressed by the level of energy they have while they’re cleaning my car. My car comes out spotless scratchless and super squeaky clean. I love that they have three wooden hanging swings and a glider so you can enjoy yourself while they service your car.

Great people. We were passing through and tired of driving. Called and they had a great site for us ready with water and electric. All paperwork was ready so it was easy. Site was nice by stream and bathrooms were clean. Short distance from 75.. .where there is a gas station….at very, very reasonable price. Two thumbs up.

Excellent place to take little ones hiking for the first time. There are many trails that are a perfect length for beginners or ones for seasoned hikers. The bison trail was super fun for our little ones because you can see the bison up close. There’s a neat little visitor center with some history of the area and artifacts. There are picnic tables for lunch and a playground that the kids loved playing on. Excellent park and so close to the city! Definitely looking into camping there soon!

I made a reservation almost two months ago for a convertible mustang. I contacted them 48 hours before my pick up time just to touch base with them about my reservation. Everything was looking great, they supposedly had a convertible matching my reservation then. I received a voicemail less thank 12 hours before my pick up time telling me that they didn’t have a convertible at this time. I called back 10 minutes after they called and they were closed. I then contacted the 1-800 number and they told me there was nothing they could do for me except give me a basic vehicle. I refused. I wanted what I RESERVED! I was on the phone with them for almost two hours. Nothing was resolved. They then stated i could rent a Mustang hard top…not what I wanted but I settled with it because I then only had 9 hours until pick up. I arrived at this location at 8:00am, the time of my pick up. They didn’t have the car ready!!!! We were there for 2 hours WAITING!!!! They almost made me late to the airport to put my daughter on a plane. While I waited for the car there was another customer that was dealing with the same issue I was dealing with!
I asked for money off of my reservation and they said if we get anything off I will have to wait 3-4 business days to receive it after I drop the car back off. Needless to say I will NEVER go back to this location, or even Budget ever again. I have had nothing but trouble with this company.

I went in today to state the issues and return the vehicle. The manager, Yvon Harper, got very unprofessional and mouthy with me while my children were there. She was disrespectful and very Ghetto. It was ridiculous….yes I did get an attitude when I was being disrespected by her but never did I ever bad mouth and disrespect someone. I pray that something is done to make sure that this issue and disrespect never happens again to future customers.

Beautiful home, fascinating history, unique all original furnishings and excellent tour guides. This was a spur of the moment recommendation from our Airbnb host that ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. If you’re interested in stepping into the past definitely step across the threshold and into the Dinsmore Homestead, you won’t be disappointed. The best $7 I spent the entire vacation.
