10.0 ExcellentJul 29 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful, and I got a really cool car.Cons: Nothing, everything was great.
2.0 MediocreJul 21 2020
Pros: The staff called me just a few hours before my rental to inform me that they had no vehicles available except for one van I asked if they could give me the Vin for the price of my reservation and they said no so I was unable to get to the places I needed to this weekend with my family.Cons: They shouldn’t have had vehicles available on their website if they weren’t really available. And if they are going to cancel someone’s reservation they should at least first offer the vehicle that you have for the same price of the reservation

Good servicePros: 3rd time renting.. all good, thank youCons: No reflection on enterprise.. The Nissan was a very nice rental. The Chevy was ok but sad that its not that nice of a car despite being newer. Wouldnt even charge my phone.. No where near as nice as the nissan(altima?).

10.0 ExcellentApr 18 2019
Pros: Friendly staff.
8.4 ExcellentMar 27 2018
Rebooked SFO to PDXPros: My flight was cancelled from SFO to McKinleyville, so I had to rebook my car rental to leave from SFO and drove north. Top marks to Arlene, who worked very hard to get me the best rebooking deal possible, and it only cost me an extra $75 or so to depart from a completely different city.Cons: Other than the pain of rescheduling and having to drive an SUV that guzzled gas (I only needed an economy), I appreciated their help and it was a good rental experience.
5.2 OkayAug 15 2017
Bate and switchPros: that they had a carCons: That all they had was a subcompact car and not the standard size car I ordered
6.0 GoodAug 5 2017
Pros: The car was ready when we needed it; friendly clerk.Cons: Bummed out that the car was NOT clean. They didn't bother to wash the car or windshield, inside not vacuumed or cleaned out, and even had some granola bar wrapper left in car. When we reported the unclean car (when we returned the car) they said sorry, but they were short staffed.
5.6 OkayApr 16 2017
Could be betterPros: The Nissan Sentra we drove was fine for our 8hr drive but could have been better on gas mileage. We did use the eco option frequently and it helped some. The car was clean and had a good amount of trunk space.Cons: Customer service was simply okay at best. We were scheduled to pick up at 8am. We arrived before 8am and there was a line of two customers ahead of us. We waited over 45 minutes to get our vehicle. Really? We needed to get on the road. When returning our vehicle at 9am the next day, the woman that unlocked the door clearly saw us standing directly outside the door, but didn't feel at all obliged to open the door for us. When we showed ourselves inside, she didn't properly acknowledge our presence, say hello, or show any sort of courtesy. She simply took the keys and muttered to herself and walked outside to review the vehicle. I'll go across the street next time to Enterprise. The vehicle was also covered in scratches. We booked online and Hertz agents were not familiar with kayak.com. Apparently, I paid $7 more for insurance at Kayak than I could have with Hertz. I also was unable to use my AAA discount at pickup because Kayak booking was prepaid.

2.0 MediocreJun 15 2019
Cons: My flight was delayed and so the rental car place was closed. Luckily another rental car company was open and I was able to get a car through them. Very disappointed that National did not stay open knowing they had customers to serve.
