HORRIBLE CAR WASH!! Their employees steal things out of your car!!! I paid $25 for a so called car wash and they stole $35 worth of scratch off lottery tickets that were sitting in console. The manager was very rude when I brought it to their attention. So it pretty much cost me $60 for a crappy car wash!!
Horrible experience and very rude management! the WORST – Last weekend I visited this car wash, and had an absolutely horrible experience. After getting a full service wash/vacuum, I noticed they did shotty work and missed vacuuming entire areas near the back seats. It was upon this inspection that I noticed my rear floor mats were missing. Apparently while vacuuming out my car, an associate moved my rear floor mats into my trunk to get them out of the way, without telling anyone. Naturally, I thought they were misplaced or removed from the vehicle. I inquired as to what happened to them, and requested they be returned before I pay and be on my way. The owner approached me, refused to help locate my mats, demanded $$ for the services and told me "we don't touch floor mats". He proceeded to try and take my keys from me and said "unless you pay, you're not leaving". Why would I pay if my floor mats appeared stolen, and have not been returned?
I was forced to call the police! The owner continued to be rude and belligerent, denying his own staff moved my mats to the trunk without letting anyone know. Why would I put my own mats in my trunk? That makes absolutely no sense. This business is horrible, the owner is an ignorant jerk who refuses to take responsibility for his own employees actions. Even an associate there came to me, apologized and told me he hates working at Mariner. I would not recommend them to my worst enemy.
Disappointing – I visited this car wash after searching on the internet for the "best" car wash in St. Petersburg. I thought the facility was dirty and very cluttered inside - the cashier seemed to have little interest in her job or interacting with the customers. Being a first time visitor I found the check in process difficult because I could not see the car wash menu from my car. The check in attendant seemed to be very confused when I asked to have my front carpet mats cleaned - she tried to dissuade me because the detail shop was overloaded. I pointed out that most car washes have a machine to clean the mats and that it was not really a full detail item. I was also surprised by the cost of the services I ordered - it did not take them very long to complete and I paid over $30. As I was driving away, I noticed that they did not clean out the ashtray! Should not have missed that detail for the price paid.
Great service – No one like them in the area! Great, fast service for business professionals with limited time. If they (rarely) miss any detail to cleaning your car, they will correct it without a problem!
