2.0 MediocreAug 31 2020
Pros: Staff was great, easy pickup and drop offCons: I ordered a Cadillac or similar, they didn't have any, so I got a smokey Mazda SUV that I could barely fit into instead, without a price drop or any other options given.
6.0 GoodAug 19 2020

9.6 ExcellentJul 6 2017
Not all rental companies are the same!Pros: I booked everything online through a third party website. However when I came to pick up the car the man I spoke with was incredible! He upgraded my car and made sure I was getting the best bank for my buck!Cons: When I climbed in the car theres were old Cheetos and food still stuck I between the seats. I had no time to go back and have him fix the issue as I was headed to catch a flight.

4.0 OkayAug 10 2020
Pros: The mini van was what I had reserved, ran well, was full of fuel.Cons: It could have been ready on time ( was 50 minutes late) could have been more thoroughly cleaned (candy wrapper on floor, road dust visible in interior). The Assistant manager said she had personally helped clean the vehicle as it was not ready on time. I’m sure she did. I’m also sure I was given a vehicle that had not been thoroughly readied for pick up, which is quite serious given we are in a Global health crises And that Enterprise promises rigorous cleaning of a car given their responsibility to do all possible to reduce contamination between renters.
8.0 ExcellentOct 13 2019
Pros: yesCons: survey button for excellent not working so I checked good instead
10.0 ExcellentSep 6 2019
Pros: Ryan couldn't have been more kind and understanding about a last-minute change due to a family emergency and got us into a larger car at minimum cost.Cons: Really no complaints!
10.0 ExcellentJul 26 2019
Pros: YESCons: NO COMPLAINTS - construction site made it a bit awkward to enter - but that will pass.

10.0 ExcellentNov 5 2018
Great customer service.Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful in getting us the car we needed.
8.8 ExcellentOct 14 2018
Pros: Nice person at the desk.Cons: Drop off in Bellingham WA airport was awkward. Signage is fine until the last 1000 yds., then it becomes virtually invisible in the dark. I circled the airport 3 times. The nice woman at the Enterprise desk (the only person in the entire rental area at 7:15 am BTW) suggested that this invisibility is a common problem; (Fix it, Enterprise, make a new sign) Returning a car is a bit "loose" - park it wherever - but that was fine with me..unless there's a problem later that I don't know about
8.0 ExcellentOct 6 2018
Bellingham employees are superiorPros: The type of car reserved was available, the car was clean and the employees were pleasant and helpful.Cons: There were minor electrical problems with the car. The seatbelt alert was not working, I inadvertently drove off with my elderly aunt no seatbelts in.
2.0 MediocreJul 19 2018
No optionsPros: NothingCons: No great options for luxury cars.
6.0 GoodNov 29 2017
Inform your employeesCons: The employees at the Bellingham airport were not helpful. I called on two different days and was told both times that they could not find my reservation. The first time they couldn’t find it using my last name so they used my confirmation number then the second time they couldn’t find it using my confirmation number so they used my last name. My main frustration came with their lack of knowledge on where to drop the car off. We took the car 20 miles south to Anacortes to drop the car off at the ferry landing but didn’t know exactly where to leave it parked. The anacortes enterprise office was already closed so we called the Bellingham office and the employee was of no help. He said he’d never heard of dropping the car off at the ferry landing but I had already been told by the anacortes office that we were able to drop it off there for pick up the next day. After getting nowhere on the phone with the employee from Bellingham we ended up finding the right parking lot on our own, 5 minutes before our ferry came. My point of all this is to inform your enterprise employees of your drop off locations. I know this drop off is a different location than the Bellingham employees might be used to but it’s only 20 miles from them so I feel like they should know. The ferry drop off is very convenient and I can see more people utilizing it as time goes on and they should get specific instructions on where exactly to drop the car off to save them stress later.

No cars availablePros: Absolutely nothing.Cons: We reserved a car but there were no cars. I expected to pay $78 but had to spend $210 to rake an uber to the airport rather than the rental car.
