Aug 12 2021
No problem with pickup - friendly staff and chosen car was ready to go when I arrived. Pleasantly surprised given all the poor reviews. Car was clean and tank was full. Dropoff was a little odd. Due to being short staffed (one of the staff mentioned this), despite a closing time of 6pm (don't book for later than this time), I arrived at 5:40pm to find the place was locked up with no one there. Another guy planning to pick up a car was furious. Fortunately, a staff person showed up around 5:50pm, only unlocking the back door and I was able to confirm the car was checked in. So it worked out no problem for me although there were some red flags for next time.

Pros: Pick up was tedious because the computers were down.
Cons: The car was very dirty and the windshield so smeared on the interior that I had to clean it myself.

Apr 12 2021
Pros: The Car worked okay and got great mileage and the staff really tried to help - they were just understaffed for the amount # of cars going out and coming in.
Cons: The 7 passenger Van was 2.5 hours late in getting to my pickup location. I did not receive a call until I arrived in the parking lot at 9:00 a.m. to pick it up. I had to return and I actually picked it up at about 11:30 a.m. and spent a about 30-45 minutes waiting as they were totally understaffed. The care worked fine, but was smaller than what was advertised - it was definitely not an equal to the model advertised which was a Nissan Pathfinder.

Mar 25 2021
Pros: Staff was super helpful, but he was the only person at the location working (working front desk as well as sanitizing each vehicle). We weren't able to leave with the rental until almost 2 hours late. Also, we were not able to add the extra driver even though we had the driver's license along (as indicated in the instructions in our confirmation email. This was hugely inconvenient as we were traveling through the night with infants and needed to have more drivers for safety reasons.
Cons: The instructions for adding additional drivers should be clearly indicated in the confirmation email and the staff at locations should be trained in the procedures. Also, locations should have back up staff to call when they know it will be a busy day due to the pre-reserved vehicles.

4.0 Okay
May 17 2021
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful. It was very easy to get to the car and then return it.
Cons: This was my first time ever renting a car I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was definitely disappointed. Once I got the keys I went to get the car and got in, I immediately noticed it smelled like smoke. It wasn’t unbearable but I wanted to report it because I didn’t want the company to think I had anything to do with it. I went back to inform the guys at the desk but they were all gone. I waited for about 10 minutes or so but no one came back. Fortunately there was a woman at another rental car company desk right there who took my information and said she would give it to the guys in the morning and to not worry about it. While driving the car around over the weekend I had the AC on and it had a mold smell at different times. I’m assuming the air filter needed changed. I’m kind of surprised This happened. I assumed rental car companies would make sure the car was clean and was maintained with new air filters. But perhaps not and this is just how it is. Also, I was incorrectly charged on my credit card and customer service is going to fix it but could not tell me why that happened.

Pros: The rep on duty on 9/18 at 9:45 am was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodate my rental request. Through a website I reserved a large SUV. Enterprise was oversold on the vehicle I needed. The rep. came through for me on my request and worked hard to make sure that I had what I requested. That Rep made my trip with my family comfortable and joyful.
Cons: Get more Large SUVs for the area (Charlottesville, VA) they always sell out on the weekend.

Pros: We used the airport location Enterprise, not the standalone in Charlottesville. Both the pickup and drop-off was very smooth as the agents were easy to work with! The price was great, vehicle exceeded our expectations!
Cons: The "need oil change" light came on during the trip. I'm not sure if anything can be done in the future, it wasn't alarming to us as we knew the trip was almost over.

Customer service rep was taking a personal call on her cell phone with the other party on speaker. Because she didn’t want the other party to know she was at work (?) or disrupt her conversation, the budget rep whispered while doing my paperwork and I could barely understand her. To top it off, the was NOT LOCATED where she said it was! I spent 10 mins searching the lot where she directed me, headed back to the desk, and then said she meant to say it was the opposite direction to where she initially told me. Unbelievable.

We had an enterprise reservation. When we got there they said sorry no car available. Could not believe it. Through kayak we got a car from budget right away. Very happy. We were driving from Charlottesville VA to DC and all our plans were at risk. So happy with budget.

They closed...
Cons: According to the other car rental services, dollar is supposed to remain open until the last flight arrives. This was not the case, they closed and therefore I couldn’t rent from them and had to pay double to rent from someone else. Never use them again, that’s for sure.

It is not worth it to deal with the staff here, I would walk
Pros: Low wait time, close to the doors of the airport, the lot is close to the desk
Cons: That the desk agent tried to give me a care multiple tiers below what i reserved, because I reserved through a third party site and he was not okay with that. He said I paid to little. I don't see how that is my problem, why he doesn't have to follow published rates and honor completed transactions, and where the corporate oversight it that should come down and remind this location that just because it is the only desk at the airport and a little isolated does not give them the ability to do whatever they please for whatever reason.

First car at pickup reeked with cigarette smoke so bad I couldn’t use it. They did replace with same type vehicle. Was very displeased that the same car rental fee around $25 less per day at their 8 min away location. I couldn’t use them because my flight got in at 3:30 and they closed at 4:00 on Saturdays and they would not leave car for me like Enterprise rental does
