Sep 15 2018
Pros: Manager in Bethesda assisted me. She was very helpfu6l and efficient. I needed a vehicle to drive up to new york and drop off. Although there was a surcharge for doing that it was very useful to be able to. I will definitely use Enterprise again.
Cons: There was no Ez pass in the car.

Jun 20 2016
Pros: Car was comfortable and staff was courteous.
Cons: They did not have the size car we reserved at puck up and only had a significantly smaller car available. We had to wait a long time to get a car the size we reserved.

Jul 20 2016
Pros: Pickup and Drop off were the most impressive.First, I loved getting a good price and not having to go to the airport. And secondly, the pickup and drop off were exceptionally easy. The Ford Focus got us around, but was jerky taking off from stoplights, etc. I should probably get an upgraded car next time.

HIdden location

Cons: Hard to find the Hertz desk hidden in a hotel on the corner. Poor signage.
8.0 Excellent
Sep 15 2017
Pros: Nice to be able to pick up and drop off somewhere else other than the airport.
Cons: Suggestion: for the pick up and drop off locations identify the name of the business attached to the address. For example, my pick up location was in the lobby of a hotel. Instead of just providing the street address, add that it is located in the lobby of x hotel.

Pros: The staff on site weren’t helpful but my experience was salvaged by a wonderful customer service representative.
Cons: They could have answered my initial plea to understand the nature of the situation. Instead I needed to resolve the issue after the fact with customer service.

Convenient Location good value
Pros: I needsd a car for weekend and this place was extremely close to my hotel. They have Budget and Avis rentals. Seems like they are running lean to provide competitive prices. Same guy on pick up and drop off Sunday.
Cons: Upkeep of location and cars not up to same standards as typical airport locations. My car was a bit dinged up inside and out. I just needed to get home. But the inside was not that detailed and maybe would not be good for using car for driving clients for example. Mechanically car ran very well. Overall for the value I would use again

Competition is way ahead...
Cons: They don't pick you up even if close proximity as only one person. They probably many customers to across the street at enterprise. The insurance purchased online is dreamed upon as it's in expensive but has worked some not for others. so cancelled Alliance insurance and purchase one with budget. Would have been easiest to go with enterprise...less frustration and head. I agree with someone else I was quickly ushered out but if given more to understand the important features of the car such as headlights and gas tank would be helpful.

Too busy talking
Cons: Staff at drop-off were far more interested in continuing with what appeared to be a personal conversation with a friend/customer rather than helping those standing next in line.

Cancelled my reservation with 30 minutes notice
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: They called me 30 minutes before pick up to tell me they didn't have a car for me and made no effort to fix the situation. They were very unapologetic and didn't even care to offer any useful help.
