10.0 ExcellentApr 28 2021
Pros: Friendly staff and easy to pick up and drop off
9.6 ExcellentDec 2 2019
Pros: Yes, the staff are very friendly and knows their job well. I would always want to rent and enjoy the service expect for the price.Cons: Please work to bring the pricing down
7.2 GoodJul 11 2018
first time rented with some concernsPros: facility was clean and very close to my house. They have new cars and cars are neat and cleanCons: Their staff was not nice. They forced me to buy their collision insurance ( about $28 per day) They told me that even their office are close and you use their key drop facility, they will charge one day extra. To avoid this , they ask me to return car before they close business
3.2 MediocreApr 23 2016
They need some workPros: I loved the price it was perfect for a one day trip.Cons: The car was dirty definitely not cleaned out and It had a sandwich left over from previous rental. And the breaks were bad. They need to have their maintenance done on the cars before renting them. I had to buy air freshers to covee up the awful smell. I was not happy.
2.0 MediocreMar 29 2016
They refused to give me a car.Pros: The receptionist was polite.Cons: They refused to give me a car. I am not US citizen, so my credit card is not from US bank. First of all receptionist was trying to refuse because of absent of the insurance. The problem was solved only after I pointed that I already bought insurance in your site. After that we faced with problem of my foreign driver's license. And again I had not got any help from rent-a-car service: the receptionist said that she could do nothing - as before, when we discussed insurance. But I could not solve this problem by myself. So eventually I had not received car from this service. I have to say that I received a car this day from Avis without big problem.

2.0 MediocreOct 18 2020
Pros: Drop off in Pittsburg was easy and quick.Cons: Consistent closing time. Manager give customer time and consideration.
3.6 MediocreJun 29 2020
Pros: The car had AWD which was nice.Cons: The size SUV that I reserved (months prior) was not available as they overbooked. They gave me something smaller but still charged the same price. The car was dirty- seats stained, dirt/dust all over, trash in the seats. This was during COVID-19 when cleaning standards are supposed to be even higher than usual. Windshield wipers were a safety hazard and I almost had to replace them like the last Enterprise car I rented. I will not rent from this Frederick Enterprise, or any Enterprise, again.
3.6 MediocreJun 29 2020
Pros: The car had AWD, so that was nice.Cons: The size SUV that I reserved was not available, so I was put into something smaller but still paid the same price. The car was NOT clean- stains on the seats, dust/dirt visible, trash in the seats. And this was during COVID-19 when cleaning standards are supposed to be higher! The windshield wipers were also very poor and would be considered a safety hazard in the rain. I almost replaced them like I did with the last Enterprise car I rented. I will not rent from Enterprise again.
9.2 ExcellentOct 27 2019
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful. The car model was just what we wanted. Everything was explained in detail.Cons: The car was a little dirty, with crumbs and lots of scratches in the interior. We had to vacuum it and wipe it out before we used it, which was a little disappointing.
10.0 ExcellentJul 17 2019
Pros: Staff were very friendly and helpful
10.0 ExcellentMay 25 2019
Pros: Pick up took few minutes, but we got a nice clean car, with everything explaunned -- and drop off was super quick -- odd that the car was 'half-full' of gas and we had to return it that way, compared to most rental car places where it's given full of gas and we return it full -- but things went OK
9.2 ExcellentSep 4 2018
Great VW Atlas rental for the Labor Day weekendPros: Loved the vehicle, which was a 2018 VW Atlas SE V6 with 4Motion. Was supposed to be a minivan (Dodge Grand Caravan, ugh), but lucky for us, the minivan hadn't been cleaned, so they offered us the Atlas (a premium 3-row SUV) or a Chevy Suburban (even bigger) for the same price. I took the Atlas since I've been considering buying one, and a 3-day test drive sounded perfect! The vehicle was very clean, very spacious, and except for my wife, who has back problems, was very comfortable.Cons: The check-in and pick-up process was a bit disorganized, but overall everything went pretty well. Parking the vehicle upon return was tough, as there were cars lining the driveway and finding someplace to park the Atlas (not a small vehicle) proved challenging. Luckily, I found a spot that wasn't blocking anything (too much).

2.0 MediocreAug 27 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly.Cons: We rented a compact online but when we arrived they only offered sub-compact. We were picking up right at closing which kayak nor Hertz notified us about. Had we not arrived early we would have been unable to pick up rental and would have had to pay for 2 full days prior to being able to pick up
4.4 OkayAug 23 2018
Poor independent owner. Don’t recommend!!!Cons: Car was reserved over a month in advance. No car was available at time of pick up. Owner upgraded for free but because my rental was over 30 days he was unable to give originally agreed price for entire trip. Waited until I was stares away to give me a hard time and told me car had too many miles etc. we had unlimited miles and in the end he charged us more than the agreed cost. Very disappointed and not satisfied with this location. Will never use again.
6.0 GoodMay 22 2018
Please be more dynamicPros: They matched the cheaper price I found online after some encouragement on my part. The car I got was good.Cons: The car itself was onlly half full with gas which was not great for me who just wanted to get from A to B fast. Nobody at the office when I walked in, took a while for the only employee to come back. They should have uniforms (saves staff wearing silver belt buckles that have turned rusty...it just looks like you're not paying people a lot) and was so laid-back it took me quite a while to actually get the car when I was really only renting it to save time and to get to my destination faster. Other people got annoyed when he disappeared dealing with my car, saying "where did he go to!?!". I needed a car to go to a very major city and asked for advice on where to drop it off, given that I am foreign. I expected him to be able to look up where Hertz drop off-places in that city are and to show me but that was not the case. It took him a while to get his phone out to do some research for me. I wish he'd be more creative and enthusiastic to put in some research on the best prices in the area, the possible drop-off locations etc I also had to show him online prices from a third party site for him to research if he could match that price, i.e. give me a much cheaper rate- which he could, no problem. I wish they'd do that as a default. Having said that, he was helpful and nice, just taking his time doing so.
4.4 OkayMay 7 2017
Still waiting for my funds....Pros: The customer service team is helpful abd friendly.Cons: I was over charged instead of holding $200 for my debit card I had $400p ut on hold. To this day I am still waiting on the last $200 to be put in my account.

2.0 MediocreMay 18 2021
Cons: I cancelled my rental. In order for me to use my bank card that is associated with my checking acct and is in my name they had to run a credit check and base on my credit score it will let them know if I could use it! A bunch of BS! I went to Nextcar rentals on Baughmans Ln and had Absolutely no issues using my bank card and my deposit was only $150 not $250, so I saved over $200 and the rental was nice!

Pleasant on the drop-offPros: The location was pretty easy to find near the Frederick Airport and was relatively convenient to our hotel and the downtown. The staff was helpful and pleasant.Cons: No complaints other than having a restroom for customers would be a big plus.
10.0 ExcellentOct 24 2017
Cons: The insurance offered by third party was a rip-off and didn't know until I got to the rental office and found out I needed to purchase the collision from Budget to feel secure about the situation.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 13 2017
Courteous service and got me on the road quickPros: Everything was as expected, and the price was great. I just needed a car to get from Frederick to the airport in Washington, so one way trip. Was the cheapest way. The car was clean and drove fine.Cons: Nothing
2.0 MediocreAug 16 2016
TerriblePros: NothingCons: The car they attempted to give me had a large scratch on the side and the front right fender was damaged. I was going on a long road trip and the car did not have a spare tire. I asked to upgrade and I was told that he didn't have anything else aviable.... The lot was full of over cars... Never again will I waste time with budget.
