7.9 GoodSep 30 2021
No problems with the vehicle. The vehicle was not as clean as it should have been.
10.0 ExcellentJun 28 2021
Staff was great. Car was clean. Easy pickup/dropoffCar was underwhelming. We did the cheapest option, but we were still surprised how much the car struggled up hills. It worked fine overall though
10.0 ExcellentMay 17 2021
Fantastic staff and great service. Kind, responsive, professional, just a pleasure to work with.Location does not allow after-hours key drop due to roving car-theft gangs. Maybe a better/stronger drop box could work?
3.6 MediocreNov 1 2020
The woman who serviced us upon arrival was very rude. Especially, with the drop off. We were supposed to do a key drop off box. The place suspended that activity and never let us know. There was nowhere to leave the car and we didn't know what to do. She must have seen us from a distance since the office was closed and came over to ask about us. Her response was well today is your lucky day. not, I'm sorry for the inconvenience we should have contacted you telling you our policy has changed nothing.

NothingWould have been better if they had the car that I reserved. Also if they would’ve called me once they had a car to rent

All big companies we’re taking reservations bun none had cars available , big scam from kayak
2.0 MediocreSep 12 2020
There were no cars available to fulfill our reservation. The Enterprise corporate staff assured us there were cars available when we phoned the night before but then on the morning of the rental, the local office called to tell us they had none and could not fulfill the reservation. We ended up renting directly from a local Avis but it caused us a lot of headache And stress at the start of our vacation. Was very disappointing as no one from Enterprise seemed able to resolve the situation.

Really good car for what I neededWanted car at a different location for pick up. Would have saved me a couple hours on pick up and drop off. Yes I could have picked up closer but car was more expensive at that location.
10.0 ExcellentJul 28 2020
The staff were very polite, professional and quick.The only thing I wish was that there were floor mats in the car. Colorado is very dusty and I was concerned about tracking dirt on the carpet.

The staff was nice, they were helpfulThe car was late to drop off and was not cleaned out but we were going on a family trip so we needed to leave. There was a nail in the drivers side tire and we used fix a flat and after hours drop off so I could not tell them. Not sure if the nail was in the tire when we picked it up but we were far from any towns and limited cell service so we did what we could do.

KudosIn person customer care was outstanding
5.2 OkayApr 1 2016
Quick but mistakesEasy after hours drop off box.Only issue was Avis Lakewood overcharging me at return. They quickly fixed this after I called customer care, but I don't appreciate having to find extra unauthorized charges on my credit card and spending time on the phone to get it fixed.

This Hertz location has exceptionally helpful staff. They really like to solve problems and make things go smoothly for their customers.
10.0 ExcellentMay 15 2021
all good. no hassles checking out or in. car ran great. no other issues.n/a. all good.
2.4 MediocreOct 21 2020
They have double charged me. Hertz has a sleazy way of making it seem like you pay one thing but then they charge you much more later. I will not be renting through kayak again because this is a shady practice y'all are linking users up for.
10.0 ExcellentOct 16 2020
Well I forgot her name, but the Landry was great. Made it quick and painless. The car was perfect for my trip and couldn’t have been happier. Thanks.Everything was great
7.6 GoodSep 21 2020
We got an unexpected upgrade. Super nice!The key drop-off box was broken, and we had to drive back the next day to return the key.
2.0 MediocreSep 16 2020
NOTHINGI prepaid for my Hertz rental and got a call the morning of the reservation saying that they did not have a car for me. The Hertz employee was EXTREMELY rude on the phone. When I called Hertz, they told me I had to call a different number for the refund. I called that number and it connected me back to the exact same customer service menu. They ended up switching my reservation to a different location and i got ANOTHER call 15 minutes before I was supposed to pick up my car saying that there was no car for me! Long story short - I am still trying to get my money refunded and I never got a car from them. Worst car rental experience EVER
5.6 OkayJun 28 2020
The pickup location was not even open at the time I was supposed to pick up my vehicle. Then I had to drive another 45 miles to the airport to pick up an alternative vehicle. Website information is not accurate and very poor overall experience.

7.6 GoodSep 30 2019
Staff was friendly, price was good for what I ended up with.The woman working the counter when I picked up was alone and super overwhelmed with how busy it was. She was incredibly nice, and also apologetic, but it was clear there isn’t really a system for ensuring cars are prepared for renters. Everyone had to wait a long time (an hour or so).
