We are staying at Park Vue Inn, can you please advise closest car rental.
Also travellers from Australia did you book in Australia or wait until you arrive.
Always book car rentals in advance. I have booked at the counter only twice in my life and both times it was much more expensive then if I had booked ahead.
Learn how to use Google Maps to search for a type of business (yes, it can do that). If you run that search, there's a Dollar office down the street and farther away around the corner on Katella, there's Hertz, Avis, and Enterprise.

When you booked online with Alamo does that price include all the insurance that overseas visitors need? Also do USA car rentals have an excess like we do here in Australia in the event of an accident?
Sorry I'm just trying to get my head around it all as I want to book our car hire for our upcoming trip.
Like any insurance you can pay for extra add on insurance if you wish. We found it to be very good what was included, we only added on a tank of petrol as we didn't want to chase a petrol station to refill it before dropping off. Go onto the Alamo site and put in your details for dates and car and it will show you what is included and what you can add on. If still not sure just email them about it. The good thing is you don't have to pay a deposit when you book online. Booking online from Australia we didn't have to pay a one way car hire fee either. We dropped the car off in San Francisco.
Its usually never a good idea to pre-purchase fuel. Your going to be paying alot more for that through the car rental place. And you do need to be cautious that you are adding in all of the insurances you need for out of Country visitors which are very different than just a basic plan offered.
We booked beforehand using autoeurope which gave us the best price for Alamo, although the office was used for dollar and hertz, we booked a car seat and it was brand new still in wrapper.
Another website recommended on here that a friend used the same time as us, was rental cars.
Oh and I had originally booked on Avis own website and there were excess amounts on insurance policies whereas when I rebooked with autoeorope there was no excess charges.
There is a petrol station a block away from katella office if you want to just leave car back filled up
