I love how on time, how much assistance I get with luggage, just all around professional. I've used them a lot over the years. Something of note, Uber & Lyft may not be reliable on getting you to the airport by the way.

We were very happy with the service and personnel of Karmel's Shuttle. We phoned as instructed when we got to the airport. Not having a cell phone we worried about a pay phone but once we found one discovered the number was an 800 no cost. The van arrived about 15 min. later as explained and off we went. Right to the door of the motel. Return trip the van arrived within one minute of time designated. Yes, I would recommend this service and would use them again.

We recently used the Karmel shuttle from LAX to our Anaheim hotel then back to LAX a week later. There were no issues. Shuttle was on time both times. The van was newer on the return trip but the other one was fine as well. There was no stand out service from the drivers, they mostly just kept to themselves, but that was okay. We brought our own booster seat as they don't supply them but i'm not sure what most people do. I forgot to check if the vans had a latch system. All or some of the seats in the vans had bucket seats.

Unfortunately had a not good experience. Drivers were fine and on time. Had issues with dispatcher. She had a terrible attitude. Wanted to change a pick up time. Only gave me one option. If you want to change a pickup time you have to call in. That's what I did and she said she had nothing available and so I had to wait two and a half hours for a pickup. When I said if I could cancel the order she said no I would be charged. I said that was terrible and she said no it's not terrible you have to pay so I said okay. Again the drivers were on time and wear nice have no issue with them. I will not use this shuttle service again when visiting California. Even if I could not change my pick up time I would expect someone to show some empathy and express that cuz now I had to wait over two and a half hours for a pickup or lose my money. She just had a nasty attitude and that's to me it's not acceptable.
