10.0 ExcellentApr 6 2021
Pros: Very nice people good customer serviceCons: No
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2020
Cons: They did not have a car for me - or for at least two couples who had arrived ahead of me. They did not have a car for me the following day, either, and just shrugged their shoulders and said "there are no cars". At that late date, I wasn't able to find a rental car at another agency, either. Given that I had made the reservation several months ago and paid upfront, I found this completely unacceptable and will never rent from them again.
3.6 MediocreDec 12 2019
Cons: Nickel and dimed me to pieces. Charged me for 1 extra hour and then an additional charge for being Late. Smdh.
7.2 GoodOct 20 2019
Cons: Upgrade to better vehicle
2.8 MediocreAug 23 2019
Cons: The staff was incredibly unfriendly, unhelpful, and most of all, unprepared. I booked a car with this Hertz location and when I showed up, was told there were no cars. It took well over an hour for one to be brought over for me from the airport. Zero communication or help from anyone "working" there
4.8 OkayJul 23 2019
Cons: Pick up staff was rude. I actually sat in the office for 10min before anyone even bothered to show up. I was there 10min before my pick up time and they told me to leave and come back.
2.8 MediocreJun 19 2019
Pros: Staff was not friendly.. or even on site when I arrived. The check-in took more than an hour, primarily because no one was on site... at 2 pm in the afternoon, and then they had to go find a car. The first rep was surly; the young woman who took over (after returning from lunch) was OK.Cons: Having staff available during business hours. Customer service skill training. Car was fine.
10.0 ExcellentJun 12 2019
Pros: I didn't have a pen to fill out the mileage on the return form. A nice man with Hertz at the car drop off had one I borrowed.Cons: The car return was difficult to find. Only 1 sign on Rt 101 to indicate car return exit. It sort of blended in with other signs. More signs prior to exit would have been helpful.
8.0 ExcellentJun 1 2019
Pros: Great price. Once I found where to pick up, it was OK. It would have been better if Hertz had just said where to pick up
5.2 OkayMay 14 2019
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: Hertz location was stated at san fran airport but was not actually at the airport. Had to take a Lyft from the airport to the other hertz location for rental and back at the end of trip. Added extra unexpected costs! Would have been nice to know when booking.

2.0 MediocreSep 9 2020
Pros: n/aCons: There were no cars available even though I booked in advance
4.4 OkayDec 18 2019
Pros: The rental car was in good condition and the airport shuttle was fast.Cons: There is no way to drop off a car after hours and they do not explain or advertise this. No key dropbox or anything. The parking lot is locked and inaccessible between 10:30pm and 6am. Also, the phone numbers inside the rental agreement with Payless written clearly on the front direct you to the Budget renal company, who can't help you at all.
2.0 MediocreSep 30 2019
Pros: I was not able to get this car.Cons: I am unable to give a proper review because the rental company closed at 12:00 midnight and my delayed flight got in at 1:30 AM, because it was a hot deal, I couldn't get any refund, I wish there were a policy to help mitigate these situations.
7.2 GoodSep 29 2019
Pros: MidelCons: More clean, more model choices
8.8 ExcellentAug 12 2019
Pros: Drop off sucked. It would be much better if we were dropped off at terminals instead of the rental center. We the. Had to lug everything on the tram and then to the terminal. This will keep me from using Payless again unfortunately.Cons: Drop off at terminals.
7.6 GoodJul 23 2019
Cons: There were extra fees that were not reflected in the price quoted on Kayak. You need to take a shuttle to get to the site. It was easy but adds some time.
6.0 GoodJun 26 2019
Pros: No problem with the staff, they were all helpful and the process was quickCons: Car could have been cleaner
9.6 ExcellentJun 20 2019
Cons: Car could have been cleaner, but was fine.
9.6 ExcellentJun 10 2019
Cons: Called for shuttle bus pickup and no one answered my phone call
4.0 OkayMay 11 2019
Cons: The rental spot is NOT at the airport (unlike what was advertised) but they still charge airport fees (around $20). I was hung up on twice trying to get “courtesy” shuttle. Long lines—should have cancelled and rented from one of the actual airport rentals spots. Will not be renting from them again.

Pros: Staff friendly and helpful. Location easy to access.
3.6 MediocreSep 2 2019
Pros: They upgraded the car, although they did not have the purchased car availableCons: Hidden fees. They told us we were good to go and then hit us with an outrageous $450 cleaning fee. I'm not sure how they can charge such a high fee that was not in the terms and conditions
4.8 OkayMay 11 2019

Cons: Car dirty with half-track part of big cake in the car truck Engine oil was Below 50%
5.6 OkayMar 3 2017
Windows on inside of car extremely dirtyPros: Dodge ChargerCons: Tthey did not have the intermediate car I requested and then charged me for the upgrade. The gas tank was not full, 1/2 tank when picked up. The inside of the windows were very dirty, I had to stop and buy glass cleaner and paper towels to clean them. Driving into the sun was terrible with the dirtiness of the windshield and side windows.

5.6 OkayJul 24 2017
The car worked, and clearly the employees tryPros: The employees were kind, resourceful and worked hard. The car started, stopped and turned as expected.Cons: The location stinks-be sure to plan on the time it takes to get there from SFO. The building is hot and dour-I feel for the employees! The car was not clean. I would pay extra to get a car at the SFO rental center next time.
8.4 ExcellentJul 12 2017
The price speaksPros: It was cheap and the car was in very good condition.Cons: The rental location is not anywhere near the airport. Shuttles suck, use an uber.
6.4 GoodJul 11 2017
slow to get the carPros: Shuttle was waiting for us at the airportCons: the pick-up was slow. No one accompanied me to the car to do the detailed check.
4.4 OkayJun 12 2017
Poor shuttle pick up from airportCons: It should be clearly noted on the vendor website that this is an OFF SITE airport pick up. We waited 30 minutes for a shuttle pick up that fits 6 person max in a poorly maintained van. Additional customers were left behind for another 30 minutes for later pickup. The EZ rental car in other airport locations outside of San Francisco were unlike this branch in its service, location and overall appeal. We were deeply disappointed with our rental service at the San Francisco EZ Rental car. We would rather pay a bit more for a more convenient airport location and more piedessional service the next time we're in San Francisco.
2.0 MediocreMay 11 2017
No refund of depositPros: The car was fineCons: I paid during pick up and extra 200 dollars as deposit, until today I didn't receive that amount and they never replied to my email messages.
5.6 OkayApr 23 2017
Pros: A comfortable late model carCons: The pickup drop off required almost 2 hours since the location is another 5-8 miles from where other rental car companies are located. And once at facility there are only 2 agents who take care of a long line. They push upgrades like the tolls for the bridge without explaining alternatives. You can pay cash everywhere and do online payment for Golden Gate Bridge. So avoid the prepayment if you are not crossing the bridge several times a day.
4.4 OkayApr 16 2017
Didn't have the car we reservedPros: They tried to make it right, they offered us a vehicle that would seat all 6 of us, but the cargo capacity was not sufficient. They were friendly, but in the end that's not helping us get on the road.Cons: Reserved a minivan and it was not available. We were not notified so we spent a couple extra hours getting to another rental place. Their location was pretty far from the airport. I am sure this saves them overhead, but the shuttle ride ate into the whole ordeal.
6.0 GoodJan 18 2017
OkPros: Price was very cheapCons: It was like 20 minutes away from the airport. Cars were not always clean. Had to wait a long time in line.
2.0 MediocreJan 4 2017
Worst car company in the world!Pros: The car was cheaper than anywhere else. Now I know why. I got a car with almost 50k miles on the clock, it was a wreck and was filthy. I hired my car for 3 weeks, so when I went back and asked for another one, it was refused. The worst thing if all was that the windshield had never been throughly cleaned, nor the wipers ever replaced, so everything it rained, I was blind driving! I tried to replace the wipers, but no Autoshop carried them. I had to throughly clean the windshield and wipers daily as there were several snow storms and I couldn't drive blind. I bought rain x to help me, but this car was dangerous. Also, the engine made rattling noises like it was running on no oil, and the gearbox had a mind of its own. To add insult to injury, when I went to return the car, there guys had moved yards! No effort to tell me when I picked up the rental, nor to phone or email. I was gobsmacked! Never, never rent from here, this is known as Ez rent a car, Advantage rent a car and Europcar. Walking is a better option!
8.0 ExcellentDec 21 2016
Overall it was goodPros: Service was good and car was clean. The only thing i did not like about this place is the milage limit policy they have in place for local residents. The limit is 150 miles per day. I only needed it to go to and from work while my car was in the shop so it wasnt a big deal but now i know not to rent here for my next so cal trip.
