10.0 ExcellentSep 2 2020
Cons: Nothing checkout was really quick
9.2 ExcellentJul 14 2020
Pros: Staff at counter and lot very helpful and courteous. I like Borrowing a friends car.Cons: Little pricy....but I knew the price when I rented. I had a bereavement type situation and did not have a chance to shop. Honestly.....I just needed a ride to Ravenna and back. Uber would have been a better option.
10.0 ExcellentJun 13 2020
Pros: Very friendly staff. Easy to navigate car rental area
4.4 OkayMay 28 2020
Pros: The lady at the National counter was very nice and helpful.Cons: When I arrived at the rental car center, the Alamo counter was empty. Apparently, I needed to get in line at the National counter, but there wasn't a sign at the Alamo counter to tell me this. Then when we went outside to pick a vehicle, I had to get a lower-tier vehicle than I paid for because this was all that was available. Finally, when I arrived home, the SUV had dog hair in the back seats.
2.0 MediocreMay 26 2020
Pros: station was closed, staff was not thereCons: if you accepted the reservation from customer, please make sure the car and agent are available
10.0 ExcellentFeb 1 2020
Pros: Friendly staff
7.6 GoodJan 6 2020
Cons: Very minor detail, but the inside of the windshield had some residue from cleaning that created a bad glare at night that made it difficult to see. It looked like it was cleaned with windex or something but not fully wiped away.

8.0 ExcellentJan 28 2021
Cons: The car was just a little too small for me
8.0 ExcellentNov 29 2020
Pros: Great staff. Clean car.Cons: Car pick up reservation was not at airport. Had to change reservation when I got there and was a higher price.
10.0 ExcellentNov 17 2020
Pros: The staff at pick up was great and very efficient.Cons: The drop off in Erie could have been better. The airport was closed and there was no signage of where to drop the car or the key. We were thankful the airport police officer helped us out.
2.0 MediocreOct 20 2020
Cons: They have to improve the cleaning, they are not disinfecting the cars I found a glass with pee on the door and a used mask in the back of the car
2.0 MediocreSep 22 2020
Pros: Didn't end up renting the car because the reservation made note that there was shuttle service to the rental car facility from the Cleveland airport. I was instead booked for a location 24 minutes in the opposite direction of where I needed to be going. I ended up booking directly with Enterprise at the airport.Cons: Accurately describe the location of the car rental facilities when making the reservation.

8.8 ExcellentSep 13 2020
Pros: When I went to pick up my reserved rental it wasn't there cause others were late returning theirs... so they did everything they could as quickly as possible to get me a vehicle of the size I needed... and very friendly staff!!!!!Cons: The 800 number I had said that I couldn't drop off the vehicle a day early cause it was closed. So the next day when I went to drop it off the person there said I could have and showed me the drop box... because of this I had no one to take me back home that day which was an hour drive away and had to start walking in the rain back home... thankfully a nice person gave me a ride even though I was soaking wet from walking

2.0 MediocreMay 24 2021
Pros: The drop off went fine. When I told the agent that we turned the car into about our horrible experience picking up the car, he deducted $10 off of the remaining fees.Cons: The pick up was the worst we have ever experienced. From the time that we arrived at the Thrifty counter until we were given the car, it was almost an hour. While we did receive a free upgrade, the wait was totally unacceptable. They gave us a coupon for 15% off of our NEXT Thrifty rental which probably should have just applied to the current rental.
8.0 ExcellentJan 23 2021
Pros: Checkout was easy, staff friendlyCons: The car didn’t drive very well
2.0 MediocreJul 17 2020
Pros: NothingCons: Would not refund me even though I couldn't travel due to Covid-19!
2.0 MediocreJul 1 2020
Pros: Picking up from Cleveland Airport was confusingCons: If my car did not come with a complimentary ant colony. Ants were all over me and my things, distracting me while driving.
6.4 GoodJun 29 2020
Cons: Too much $$$
4.4 OkayMay 31 2020
Pros: Drop-off easyCons: Would not allow to leave lot without purchasing insurance. Nearly doubling the price from what was booked/reserved.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 2 2020
Pros: Staff were friendly and pick up and drop off were easier than ever before. The car was clean and in a great condition and the rental was quite reasonably priced.
4.4 OkayJan 31 2020
Cons: Kayak is terrible and the price is misleading. I owed additional fees at the airport. I could have rented for cheaper without using kayak. Instead i got stuck with the „managers choice“ which ended up being a car that was scratched to hell. It was easily the worst car I’ve ever rented and I always pick the cheapest option so it’s not like the competition is tough. Never again
9.2 ExcellentJan 27 2020
Pros: Pickup and drop-off was very easy.Cons: The only blip we had was trying to figure out how to open the trunk of the car. I didn’t see anyone near the car to ask. As it was raining, we threw suitcases in the back seat and watched a You Tube video to learn how to open it. Knowing that it did not work like any other normal car, some comments may have been helpful.
2.4 MediocreJan 2 2020
Pros: I liked that it was a new car with space.Cons: They should have the cars ready. The car was dirty inside and smelling like cigarettes. I booked the car weeks before, and was expecting a clean and odorless car for the price I payed.

10.0 ExcellentJun 1 2021
Cons: Easy and convenient
8.0 ExcellentMay 23 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly.Cons: Windows were dirty. Shopped online for a good deal and pre-paid on Expedia, but then I had to pay another 160+ for fees that were not mentioned on Expedia. Feel like I got ripped off. When shopping for a good value, it's unfair to be hit with extra unexpected fees.
4.0 OkayMay 23 2021
Cons: I waited an hour for the car. It was the wrong car even though I paid extra for it. I had to switch to a different car due to the cigarette smell and low pressure in the tire. There were extra fees that I did not know about.
8.8 ExcellentNov 3 2020
Pros: The vehicle was clean which was important to me.Cons: When I arrived to dollar rental, they counter was closed. My flight had been delayed due to deicing It took over an hour for the Hertz staff to "reduce" my paperwork dude to my rental being prepaid
8.8 ExcellentOct 17 2020
Pros: The staff at both pick up and drop off were very helpful.Cons: The price was more money than priceline had quoted. On priceline I clicked the option to add my spouse for no charge however when I went to pick up the rental I would have been charged $13 a day on top of the additional expenses. The staff at pick-up was one person, she did a great job but there was quite a backlog. More support for her would have helped the process go quicker.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 18 2020
Pros: Pickup and drop off were very easy.Cons: I cannot provide one instance regarding what could have been better. Everything was great!
10.0 ExcellentDec 16 2019
Pros: First vehicle had a major issue, they got us back on the road quick and hassle free.
2.0 MediocreDec 9 2019
Cons: No explanation on $200 deposit by credit card in advance - no help when my temporary card ( replaces by bank due to fraud) was not accepted by their software. Will never use dollar again Will not use advance car purchase again
8.0 ExcellentNov 30 2019
Pros: The check in staff was very good as was the return staff.Cons: it was fgine.
2.0 MediocreJun 10 2019
Pros: i was going to be charged over double what i was quoted. i know deposits are necessary, but that was exorbitant and also should have been stated when i made the reservation. i had to find other means of transportation as i hadn’t planned for this.Cons: be up front about ALL costs (including deposits) DURING BOOKING

10.0 ExcellentMay 21 2021
Pros: When I first arrived at the rental counter at Cleveland/Hopkins airport, the clerk informed me my rental had been made at another Cleveland location miles away. When I asked if there was anything she could do to help me she imphaticaly said no. A supervisor happened to be there and came to my rescue. She was wonderful. The first clerk was not going to even try to help or ask the supervisor if anything could be done. To her, the mistake and inconvenience didn't matter. Once the supervisor helped things went well and quick. My return person was great!Cons: Perhaps train clerks in regards to customer service. They appear to have NO desire to help solve problems. Thank goodness for a competent supervisor!
10.0 ExcellentMay 19 2021
Pros: The car was clean and niceCons: Better prices
2.0 MediocreMay 10 2021
Pros: Car rental was set for 6:00-- I arrived to the lot at 6:02 as a function of traffic and work. No-one was there to be found as they had closed at 6:00 on the dot which is interesting since this was my pickup time (how can you close at 6 and also rent a car at 6?). Anyways, I called "customer no service" who refused to help me in any fashion. They would not find me a comparable truck anywhere nearby without significant fees. The best they could offer was to replace my $298 rental for a >$600 rental, which is in no way comparable. Needless to say, I ate the loss and rented a car with enterprise. I will never use Hertz or this location again and I'd advise you do the same.Cons: Everything
10.0 ExcellentMay 8 2021
Pros: Yes. Did not explain the car very well but very courteous
2.0 MediocreApr 26 2021
Cons: Worst experience I’ve ever had renting a car!
6.0 GoodApr 6 2021
Pros: Staff at Cleveland Airport (Rocky) was very good.Cons: Price is incredibly expensive. Hertz lost a customer today because they are clearly "sticking it" to their customers. I did NOT like Kayak in this regard. I searched on "rental cars CLE" and assumed that all choices were at the Cleveland airport location, but this is not true. My rental was way over on the east side of Cleveland, and I had to resolve this at the counter.
2.0 MediocreMar 26 2021
Pros: the girl behind destCons: help me
2.0 MediocreFeb 19 2021
Cons: I’m highly pissed off and want my money back. My car was for Friday morning at 8:00. I missed my flight out due to extreme pain due to my ankle fusion. I did however get another flight and was there on time Friday morning to get my car. I was told because I had missed my flight they canceled my car reservation. There was no reason that car should have been canceled until after I had missed the car pickup time
2.4 MediocreSep 8 2020
Pros: No, I didn’t get the car at Beachwood, I had to go to Bedford. I got there had to wait in line for a long time while picking up and dropping off.Cons: The car was not clean, it smelled like smoke and the tank was not full.

2.0 MediocreJun 16 2021
Pros: I was planning my bachelorette weekend. We planned for a 12 passenger van because of how many girls where going and we could all drive down together . I reserved the van 5 months in advance. I called 3 times prior to the trip (included two days before) to check to make sure the van was going to be ready to be picked up. Both kayak and cleveland Hopkins verified it would be there. We had a tight strict schedule to follow so we could be on the road by8:00am. I scheduled the pick up time early so it gave us an hour to get the van and pack, and be on time. When i get to the airport rental in Cleveland i had my confirmation code and everything i needed to pick up the van. The lady at the front desk seemed panic when i showed up. She radio back because she did not have a 12 passenger van for me to rent. After 10 min she confirmed it was there but needed to be cleaned. She said it would take about 15 min and it would be ready. My friend and i sat down and waited. About an hour went by. We went back up and asked the front desk worker (who seemed really annoyed by us) if the van was ready. She said yes it just needed air and it would be out soon. My friend and i went back to our waiting place. The front desk worker (who didn’t know we where sitting there ) yelled out to the back workers where the van was and they said it’s still being cleaned. The front desk worker noticed we where sitting there. About another hour goes by and we finally get the van. It was still a bit dirty but at that point i was just happy then van was even there and ready for us to leave since we now where 2 hours late from our scheduled pick up and time we should have been on the road.Cons: I wish i would have no been lied to. I understand how crazy work places are and how busy travel is since covid rules have been pretty much lifted. I just wish if it would have taken two hours to clean the van and get it ready i would not have been told 15 min. I could have went back home to get other thing get ready for my trip. Maybe better communication when calling to confirm bookings to make sure the cars are there. When i was told it was going to be there and ready multiple times on the phone.
2.0 MediocreJun 15 2021
Cons: I ordered a pickup at the airport and they car was downtown. So a 30 minute $30 Uber ride and an hour later, I was on my way.
6.0 GoodJun 15 2021
Pros: Staff friendly and helpful for the most part. Dropoff easyCons: Pickup was a little confusing as I expected a person and instead the car was sitting there running unbeknownest to me the whole time I was waiting for someone to bring the car or give me the keys. Also desk clerk a little high pressure about buying insurance
10.0 ExcellentJun 7 2021
Pros: Staff was very friendly, pick up and drop off super easy.Cons: Price
10.0 ExcellentJun 1 2021
Pros: Staff was great, friendly and helpfulCons: Nothing, best rental ever
4.0 OkayMar 31 2021
Cons: It was actually a bad experience. I inadvertently selected your downtown location. My intent was to utilize your airport location but your airport representative would not allow me to pick the rental car up from the airport without paying a $133 additional fee even though cars were available. Needless to say, that was extremely unfair and inconvenient. Being a traveler from out of state, I know nothing about downtown Cleveland but was forced to go there. In addition, your rental rates have become extremely too high (overall). Nearly $75.00 for a basic car is unacceptable. I feel cheated. Going forward, Budget will be my last choice.
4.0 OkayFeb 26 2021
Cons: The location is a bit sketchy and the attendant was unprofessional
6.8 GoodNov 1 2020
Cons: they charges double
3.6 MediocreOct 19 2020
Pros: Drop off was easy.Cons: Budgets counter was closed and was directed to the Avis counter. Took awhile to get someone to help me , they tried to upsell me to an SUV, guess that is expected, but the worst issue was the car was rank with cigarette smoke. We fabreezed that car every time we entered and exited it. Horrible
10.0 ExcellentOct 12 2020
Cons: The check-in was so smooth and fast really meant a lot how well they were prepared

Cons: I requested pickup/drop off at the airport and it was booked through the downtown Cleveland location.
4.0 OkayApr 8 2021
Pros: Staff was a bit confused on where the car wasCons: Car should have been cleaner and we waited over 30-40 mins for the car
4.0 OkayFeb 27 2021
Pros: They gave me a Chevy Traverse. It was in good condition and clean.Cons: Picking up the car took way to long! It took the guy at least 20 minutes to do the paperwork. He kept calling someone on a radio to see what was available. Then he told me that they were just finishing cleaning it and it would be brought up to the door. I kept going outside and checking. There were a number of cars setting in the lot that would have been fine for me to use. After about 25 minutes, I went back to the desk to find out where the car was. He called someone the radio and told them to bring the car up to the door. After about 15 more minutes, they finally brought the car over.
10.0 ExcellentAug 30 2020
Pros: Fast and painless
8.0 ExcellentOct 6 2019
Cons: Drop off is very confusing. No one comes to car. You have to find an employee. Car exterior was muddy on the bottom. Interior had napkins and small garbage in the center console.
3.2 MediocreSep 23 2019
Pros: Pick up was awful. The location where we reserved simply didn't have any cars and the employees did not care AT ALL and made NO attempt to rectify the situation. No manager on site nor did the employees even provide me with a customer service phone number.Cons: I did call the national number and they told me there was a car available at the airport location. I then requested to be transferred to customer service and they confirmed this, but I had to insist that they reimburse me for an Uber to the airport ($45)--it was not offered to me.
3.6 MediocreSep 19 2019
Pros: Long line to check out the car. No cars ready I the parking lot. Long line at the rental exit. It took longer to get my rental car then it took to fly from St Louis to Cleveland. I rented from Avis ( only because Hertz had no availability) expecting good service. It was horrible.Cons: See above. Everything could have been better.
4.8 OkayDec 17 2018
Counter help was good, car preparation fair to poor.Pros: Low cost on one way rental. Friendly counter people.Cons: Car not clean. Smoke permeated the interior. Window smeared. Gas 7/8 full and I did not notice until after leaving. Left quarter panel dented and scraped. Long shuttle ride to car center.
9.6 ExcellentNov 26 2018
Cons: Hard to tell where to park for dropoff - need more/better signs.
2.4 MediocreOct 20 2018
Slow and dirtyCons: It took 35 minutes from the time I got in line to pick up my car (with only two people in front of me) to the time I was able to drive away. 25 minutes of that time was spent after I had paid waiting for the car to be ready. There were dozens of cars in my category available, but for some reason, they decided to only let me take a car that still had to be washed, so I stood outside in the cold waiting for far too long. When the car arrived, there were stains on the driver's seat and a bad smell inside. I was already late for my meeting, so I had to take the car. Won't be using Avis again.

Super Fast CheckoutPros: I pulled into the return area, and was completely checked out in about a minute. The rental agent briefly walked around the car, checked the gas guage, and I was done. FAST!!Cons: The car rental return is difficult to find at the airport. It's off-site, and I didn't see any signs for it as I approached the airport. You have to go through the "Departures" area, and then follow signs to an off-site lot that's about another 5-10 minute drive. Be sure you consider this extra time before your departure!
8.8 ExcellentFeb 22 2017
Cons: I was told drop off was late, but still during business hours. The lights were on at the CLE airport drop off area, and the inside desk was staffed, but no one came out to close out my rental. There was no sign posted advising that this was after hours. After waiting around I finally just dropped the keys in the nightbox. Intuitive, but some posted guidance would have been appreciated.

Top tips for renting a car in Cleveland

  • Cleveland is a fantastic working class American city, steeped in history and with a gritty authentic atmosphere. What lies beyond the downtown district, however, is truly magical: Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio’s Amish countryside, and the Cedar Point Amusement Park all lie within a short drive of Cleveland, making renting a car during your stay a fantastic idea. If you’re a cheese lover, make sure you also make the drive out to Heini’s Cheese Chalet in Millersburg and Broad Run Cheese & Swiss Heritage Winery in Sugarcreek, both located a little over an hour south of the downtown district.
  • Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is located 9 miles away from the center of town, and the drive will only take about 20 minutes. Explore the best available deals using KAYAK, with major rental companies such as Alamo, Enterprise, Avis, and Budget to choose from. The car rental facility at the airport is easily accessed via a free shuttle, which leaves regularly from the door outside Baggage Claim 7.
  • Some major highways in the state of Ohio operate as tollways, so it is best to familiarize yourself with which ones you drive on and the specific conditions of your rental agreement. The I-90, I-80, and I-76 Highways come together to make the Ohio Turnpike, a major tollway that connects Cleveland with Toledo to the west and Pittsburgh to the east.
  • Northeast Ohio is renowned for its snowfall, experiencing the heaviest months of downfall between December and March. During this period, it is particularly important to tune in to local weather reports and apply extra caution while driving on icy roads. The primary rule for snow driving is to provide additional space to the car in front of you, as braking distances increase due to icy roads.
