Car Rental Company Recommendations (cat seats needed!)

We need to rent a car with two toddler car seats from west palm beach airport. Any feedback on positive or negative experiences would be helpful!
Thanks!

I have a rental booked for next month in Orlando. I am using Alamo (they charge $9/day for the car seat). I can't speak of experience yet. I've heard some stories of the car seats not being in great condition but I am flying by myself and cannot lug the carseat to gate check it. I am hoping for the best; and if the seat is not in good condition I will make sure I get a better one!

The risk is not just that it is in bad condition - the risk is that it has been recalled, is expired or was in an accident. I fly by myself and bring the car seat - it is a PITA but it is the safest, both on and off the plane.

This plus, I have heard of stories where there are no instructions for installation, or worse not having any seats left by the time the person arrived, despite having reserved one.
