Pros: the priceCons: a lot. First off, Google and Apple Maps had a hard time finding the location, it was showing it in a different location than it was. When I called, the lady was rude and not very helpful. When I showed up she was short and not very friendly. The car was dirty, scratched, dented, etc. Dropoff was easy (hopefully I did it right). Parked and filled out the form and dropped it in the box.
5.2 OkayMay 1 2016
Cons: Did not get the final receipt at the drop/off location, was promised the receipt by e-mail, still waiting for it.

Cons: Enterprise called me a day before and told me they had to canceled my car as they had high demand for the Holiday and they did not had the car that I reserved many days ago. They told me they couldn’t do anything that put me on a waiting list to see what day they could have a car available.!

6.0 GoodSep 6 2016
Cons: the car was not ready when promised and took a long time to prepare. The dashboard was smeared with grease. The gas tank was on empty and I had to get gas before I could even go home to pack the car...a ploy to get more gas in the tank at the end of the trip!!

10.0 ExcellentJul 15 2020
Pros: I always rent thru Dollar Rental when I go on trips because never once have I had unexpected charges or issues. Every time I get a great deal and it costs exactly what they said it would cost. I can't even tell you how much it is appreciated!Cons: There was an after hours key drop that was a little confusing because there was a sign that said charges continue to accrue until the rental place opens again. Fortunately that did not happen and I was charged only for the amount of the rental after dropping the keys off on time.
2.0 MediocreMay 28 2020
Pros: Nothing Very unprofessional
10.0 ExcellentJan 22 2020
Pros: Staff was great friendly, helpful, I really liked the minivan, It was my first time driving that make and model car and I decided that I may just go bye me one.Cons: The instructions of use for the plate pass could of been explained, it's a metal box that is stuck on the windshield. I did.have to travel on the Indiana -Illinois toll way and did not know that the box contained a ez pass. So electronically the box was being picked up and I was pulling over to pay cash Lol. 3 days later I figured out what the metal thing on the windshield was. The staff did compensate me for my trouble with the platepass, and I was very pleased with the way they handled it.
9.6 ExcellentJul 31 2018
Pros: Great vehicle for family vacation.Cons: Air conditioning does not work well when car switched to alternative power. Works great when driving, but not when stopped.
6.4 GoodJul 26 2018
More staff, please.Pros: The SUV.Cons: One poor employee was asked to staff all of Dollar and Hertz. I waited more than 20 minutes in line. He was a terrific employee who was asked to do far too much. Not fair to him or to the customers.
