9.6 ExcellentMay 22 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and despite my booking the wrong day, let me rent the same truck for the same price.Cons: This is just all Enterprise Car Rental's in general, but they don't require the person returning the car to fill the gas tank to the top and just bring it back the way it was. I always find that harder to do.
8.0 ExcellentDec 31 2019
Pros: I LOVED my rental, an expidition max. Delightful to drive.Cons: The car wasn’t ready on time. Securing my rental investment loved a call the day before, to ensure that I did, in fact, want what I’d reserved. And then, when I arrived, on time for my rental, it wasn’t there, it wasn’t in transit, and I had to wait 1.5 hours to be transported to a different location to get a suitable vehicle.
8.0 ExcellentDec 1 2019
Pros: Convenient location
8.0 ExcellentDec 1 2019
Pros: Customer service
2.0 MediocreSep 9 2019
Cons: Car was very dirty. Customer service was not good.
9.6 ExcellentAug 3 2019
Pros: The car we wanted (4-wheel drive) was available when we arrived for pickup.Cons: Car Interior cleaniness
9.2 ExcellentMar 14 2019
Cons: There was a horrible beeping sound anytime another car came near you. I know it's a safety thing to alert the driver but damn I wish I could turn it off. Drove me nuts for a month. If I cant see the 18wheeler rt next to me then I shouldn't be driving in the first place
10.0 ExcellentJan 1 2019
Helpful & AccomodatingPros: After we saw the car that we were getting, we asked if they had any larger cars available. They found something we liked, and allowed us to upgrade. In addition, they advised us not to use our credit card insurance, but either use our own car insurance or buy theirs. Thankfully, we did not need it, but I appreciated the advice.
10.0 ExcellentNov 27 2018
Pros: Great car, GREAT staff at the enterprise office
10.0 ExcellentOct 18 2018
Pros: The location did not have an suv that I requested, but offered me a generous counter-offer. I am very happy with this. I will highly suggest this place again.

8.4 ExcellentDec 29 2019
Pros: convenience of kiosk locations.Cons: pricing, windshield was dirty and couldn't be clean, was always streaky and precip stuck to all the mirrors and windows from overnight.
4.0 OkayDec 7 2018
Not happyPros: Well it got me to the airport with no breakdown..Cons: My car smelled like smoke , mentioned this at pick up and the attendant said He did not smell anything, but I’m very sensitive to smoke and it causes a migraine. Also my price was double what I was quoted!!
7.6 GoodAug 14 2017
Cons: The rental office was NOT easy to find. It's located next to Sears, which is undergoing considerable construction, so you have to look beyond the fences and scaffolding to see it.
6.0 GoodAug 10 2017
Pros: The car was comfortable, clean, and fuel efficient. They gave me a ride to the Metro, but it's not close to the Metro.Cons: I was charged another day for late return. I thought I had until noon, but I picked up at 10:48AM. The location was in the basement of the Marriott with only one man working and only a couple of cars. When I arrived to return, the office was closed while the one man working there was buying his lunch.
8.8 ExcellentMay 4 2017
Good Service - a few bumps in the roadPros: Got a brand new minivan. Service was kind and helpful.Cons: The ezpass box was still open from the previous user so I was charged for tolls. I kept it open after the first one when I went through the full service line and it was automatically charged. Costs really climb with taxes or any added coverage.
10.0 ExcellentNov 23 2016
The agency employee was very friendly and efficienPros: He was very pleasant and helpful, he even gave me directions since I was driving to my sister's house and I usually fly. When I returned the car, he was just as efficient with the paperwork and even asked if I had a nice visit with my sister. I only regret that I didn't ask his name so that I could let the company know that they've got a great employee in that office! Thanks
4.4 OkaySep 9 2016
Paid way more than what was advertised. Scammed.Pros: Cleanliness of car.Cons: Final Price was much more than advertised. I had to wait 43 min to get my car, it was reserved for 10:00 am, got it at 10:43. I was charged extra time that wasn't included in reservation price. I was charged for under 25 fee PER DAY. I thought I was paying a little over $200 for the rental, and I paid over $300. For 2 days.
6.4 GoodDec 19 2015
Major Mixup: Either Kayak or Budget Sent Me To ThePros: The car itself was just fine.Cons: Either Kayak or Budget really messed up by sending me an email confirmation to a pickup location that was different from where the actual pick up location was. The Budget agent was not able to locate my reservation despite show in them my confirmation email im person. They then proceeded to rent me a vehicle at a higher price than what I had a reservation for.

8.0 ExcellentAug 25 2019
Pros: The vehicle we picked up was bigger than advertised. That was a pleasant surprise.Cons: This location is inside a hotel. There was no way of knowing that. There are no signs outside or notes on the website that tell you that.
2.0 MediocreSep 24 2017
Cons: We were very upset over our experience with Hertz, and doubt if we will use them again. We booked on line and there was no reference to having to show our passports to get the vehicle. When we arrived to pick it up we were told they wouldn't release the vehicle unless we had our passports. We had our driver's licences with us. When we asked could we return within the hour with the passports, we were told they closed at 12 noon, and there would be no time. So we cancelled our rental and rang the company to explain our predicament, and asked that the cancellation fee be waived, which we hope has taken place. We subsequently booked with Enterprise, who did not need to see our passports. There was nothing on line to indicate with Hertz that we needed to show our passports. This was a very negative experience for us!
10.0 ExcellentJul 26 2017
Super!!!Pros: Service Car CostCons: Nothing
2.0 MediocreJan 5 2017
Disgusting condition of carPros: Everyone was very polite though not accommodating.Cons: The minivan that was waiting for me to pick up was in disgusting condition. Filth on all the seats and even gum (among other things) ground into the console panel. Stains, Soda and stickiness were on all the seats. I asked for a different car, and was told by the acting manager and the regional manager that there was no other car available for at least 24 hours. While I was told that I would receive a substantial discount if we still took the car, it was just a promise and no amount was given. Given the condition of the car, I refused the contract and ended up renting at another car rental company where the experience was 100 % satisfactory. I will never rent from hertz again.
