SIXT LA non airport locations - experience

Hi there, does anyone have experience with the Sixt LA non airport locations and selection of vehicles available?

I have a 28 day rental coming up on an X5 and is nett approx $300 cheaper to pickup the same vehicle type off airport such as Shore Hotel Santa Monica and return to LAX.

However concerned that if the off airport location has extremely limited selection then might get stuck with something banged up vs potentially having the option to select another vehicle if i was at LAX. Status matched as Platinum.

Thoughts and any recent experiences?

Thanks!

I just rented at the Venice Beach LA location and no upgrade was provided (although I am platinum). Booked a Toyota Corolla, received it. They refused to upgrade to anything higher. Not sure if the SM location is similar, but if upgrades are important to you I'd go to an airport location where more selection of cars exist. While I like upgrades, I like saving $300 more so I went local knowing the risks.
