8.0 ExcellentDec 29 2019
Pros: The process was very quick and easy!Cons: Someone had smoked in it previously and I was not made aware. There were attempts to cover it up, but it still just smelled like cigarettes and air freshener. It was pretty bad.
4.4 OkayAug 13 2019
Pros: The car was nice, the clerk was friendly.Cons: Scheduled online. When I arrived, there were no cars available, and I had to wait approximately an hour for a car. The car was clean on the outside, but the inside had some spills that weren't wiped up and smelled like marijuana. No after hours drop off instructions were provided, closed at 6:00.
2.8 MediocreAug 4 2019
Pros: I did not pick up the car , the car was dirty unfortunatelyCons: Better customer service & caring about customer is important
8.4 ExcellentJul 21 2019
Cons: Overall it was a good experience.
7.6 GoodMay 20 2019
Cons: Tried to pay with my debit ,but was told I need 2 current utility bills and who walks around with tbem...then I saidiwill use myAMEX bit that required2 a $200 deposit plis 20% down for a total.pf $305 for a $54 rental
9.2 ExcellentMar 6 2019
Pros: The staff was friendly and efficient.Cons: I wish I had been offered a toll tag.
8.0 ExcellentNov 28 2018
Pretty goodPros: Easy to setup and finish Clean carCons: Didn’t like the car itself and couldn’t get another model
10.0 ExcellentNov 3 2018
They fix complications, and reward you for any inconveniencesPros: Amy goes above and beyond the call of duty in Corpus Christi Texas.Cons: Nothing to complain about
2.0 MediocreOct 12 2018
very disappointed in customer serviceCons: I have reserved a large car, supposed to be a Toyota Camry or similar. My pick up time for car was 12 noon. Driver who picked my up to get the car arrived late to my home. When we arrived at the Enterprises office, they DID NOT have a large car for me to pickup. They offered me two smaller vehicles and claimed they were large. They logged into their system indicating I picked my car up at 1PM. That was a lie. I waited in their lobby for a vehicle until 4:30 PM. It was ridiculous. I will never rent from the Water Street Enterprise location again. Seven other customers arrived to find the cars they reserved were not there either, while I was in the lobby.
2.0 MediocreOct 10 2018
Never again with EnterprisePros: not a single thingCons: Two times in one week I tried to rent a car from Enterprise both times they had nothing in stock. I would get if you come back at 4pm we might have something for you. I had placed an order on line the second time early in the morning for another rental, when I showed up to get the car around 1pm once again no car and pretty much told your sh-t out of luck

10.0 ExcellentFeb 7 2017

2.0 MediocreAug 29 2016
Disfunction to say the least.Pros: Nothing at all.Cons: Picking up the vehicle was interesting. Being forced to take an expedition instead of the one I ordered. Air bag cover was ripped, vehicle broke down. Called Avis to report it and was told someone was on the way. One hour and twenty minutes later they arrived. In the mean time, this caused the rental contract to be late. They charged me a late fee on top of another insurance fee. The counter representative lied and gave me a phone number to call. The customer represenative actual told me (It is not our fault the vehicle broke down, so why should Avis be respondsible for it). I have never been treat like this and will be taking my personal and professional business to another rental company.

10.0 ExcellentNov 2 2019
Pros: Yes! very friendly I would do it againCons: None
10.0 ExcellentSep 22 2019
Pros: Staff was very friendly, quick and easy to get the rental. The rental was clean and ready for me.Cons: My experience this time was awesome. I just wish that when booking online you can book for a different time, it never let me change the “noon” time.
7.2 GoodAug 18 2019
Cons: Make sure you have a major credit card to put a $200 hold after you already paid for it online. Didnt tell me that and I got dropped off at the airport to pick up the vehicle. Stranded.
7.6 GoodJul 29 2018
Good ValuePros: Clean, nice car. Polite service. Car had a good phone connection and android app.Cons: Thought I was getting a Toyota, but got a Kia Soul. Car had slow pick up to speed, which was a bit scary when entering the freeway, until I got used to it and could anticipate and adjust for the slowness.
6.8 GoodJul 7 2018
Paid more than quotedPros: It was an easy drop offCons: No one was at the office during open hours for 30 to 45 mins. The person didn’t have a key to open the office so we waited even more. I was charged more than I was quoted in an official email with amount I would pay in total and no one seemed to know what to do about it, passing the blame onto the next person we dealt with. It’s still unresolved. I rate check before I buy so I’m not very happy about it. The car had terrible alignment issues. The drop off at corpus Christie however was easy and quick and there was a person at the desk so no waiting at all.
8.8 ExcellentApr 4 2017
Pros: The sales person was also nice and courteous. She was very helpful and assisted my sister in renting a car back to Lubbock. Much more helpful than the other company at the airport.Cons: When I went to return the car, the gentleman who checks your rental agreement to allow you to enter was quite rude. Very demanding as he grabbed my information.
8.0 ExcellentMar 20 2017
rentalPros: The car was good and the price was right.Cons: Had to wait about 1/2 hour to get the car.
5.6 OkayJan 4 2017
Debit Card issuesPros: Car was fine, no problems.Cons: Website says you can use debit card, but you get there and they refuse to allow you to use a debit card, so you have to use a credit card. This is misleading and false advertising, and can be extremely inconvenient if you don't happen to have a backup credit card prepared.

4.8 OkaySep 9 2017
Pros: Process was easy and staff was pretty friendly.Cons: Terrible car condition. Back bumper was totally split from car. It was hanging of and flapping in the wind. Not good for safety, noise, or efficiency.
3.6 MediocreAug 22 2017
Extra chargeCons: Charge you an extra 10 at your inconvenience after you sign off a different amount...want to make that extra buck with no rhyme or reason? Taking my buisness elsewhere.
2.0 MediocreAug 12 2017
Lack of information and waste of timePros: Picking the car and reservation was easy and the customer service woman was awesome, if I had warning on the deposit this would have been an amazing experienceCons: There was lack of information online about there being a double your cost deposit so I went unprepared and I live 30 min from the nearest pick up. If it would have been posted online that you'll need double your total in a deposit I would have gotten things prepared with my credit card. Ended up not getting the rental and cancelling plans to see family I haven't seen in 7 years.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 27 2017
Pros: Great price and people who work for them. She stayed late when our flight was delayed.
4.0 OkayFeb 9 2017
WaitPros: PriceCons: Passenger side outside mirror would not adjust. Attendant not at the desk a very long time
3.2 MediocreNov 10 2016
CluelessPros: Not much really other than the location of the desk in the Corpus Christi airportCons: The rude customer service, inability to work with them to correct mistakes that they made. Some examples include, being told to give the damage sheet to the guard on the way out... there was no guard nor anyone around. I told them I wanted to extend my reservation. I was instructed to call in later with that. When I did, I was told I had to drive 4 hours back to the location I picked up the vehicle in order to change my original reservation. I followed the instructions of the desk attendant at the desk of pick up. I was then told since I cannot drive 8 hours (4 hours each way) out of my way, I would be charged a late fee.
10.0 ExcellentOct 25 2016
Pros: Quick derive. Great rate!!
10.0 ExcellentOct 17 2016
GreatPros: Easy in and out car rental. No issues at all!
3.2 MediocreJan 4 2016
Total lack of communicationCons: The two locations i rented from, San Antonio and Corpus Christi, have zero communication between them. I believe this is the main reason for my having to pay nearly double the estimated rate. When i tried to explain this to the Corpus Christi location, they had no idea or explanation. Truly horrible
