8.0 ExcellentFeb 9 2019
Pros: Hours you are open needs work. Drop off at the Pensacolsa air port was awkward.
6.8 GoodJan 26 2017
ACE rental cancelled...no pickup serviceCons: Usually when the rental company states that they are off airport, there is a statement that there is no shuttle to their location if that's the case. Well, this rental company is so far away from the airport that it would have cost me $40 to get there by taxi. No shuttle. And when I called, they said they "could" return me to the airport when I brought the car back. I doubt that would have happened. So, from now on, I will only reserve cars from companies that are co-located at the airport or that explicitly state they have a shuttle. Lesson learned for me. I ended up renting from a company co-located at the airport, by the way. It cost me an extra $30 from my ACE rental but I saved the round trip taxi fare and the time. I had to provide ratings, by the way, in order to have my review published. I never went to ACE.

2.0 MediocreApr 13 2021
Cons: It wasn’t clean. It’s smell like a dog. I asked for them to spray it and air freshener. When put on brakes the vehicle was shaking bad. I was very disappointed.
2.0 MediocreMar 1 2021
Pros: Location called right away to inform that they had no vehicles availableCons: Cars are never available even after booking.
3.6 MediocreOct 20 2020
Pros: They were grossly understaffed, so they did not answer the phones at all, & the wrong car was given to me dirty...Cons: The opposite of what I just said! ;)
6.4 GoodJul 26 2020
Cons: One of the vehicles was on empty. Both were dirty (crumbs and curly hairs in cup holders, dirty carpet and seats). Awaiting to see if I am charged for returning one of the vehicles on empty the way I received it.
6.0 GoodJul 10 2020
Pros: The staff was trying to be friendly, but seemed to be understaffed.Cons: The staff was overwhelmed. There was one angry man who commanded everyone's attention and made me nearly an hour late getting my car.
5.2 OkayApr 15 2020
Pros: Pick was poor and drop off was greatCons: The car was not cleaned or wash the dash lit up like a Christmas tree it need oil chage and the washer fluid was also go poor maintenance
6.4 GoodFeb 25 2018
Pick up horror storyPros: Nothing. Description to follow.Cons: Ordered car online. Location was on a Pensacola Navy base which required DOD security clearance to enter. Appeared to be regular pick up location online. Called Enterprise to fix. They said they confirmed availability and transferred my reservation & sent me to location 10 miles away who had zero cars available. The wanted to give me 9 passenger “church style van”. Second location wanted to help but they had nothing. They said corporate representative never called to check availability. After waiting a long time another car was returned which they gave me. Hours wasted on our Florida vacation.
10.0 ExcellentNov 15 2016
No problemPros: Easy out and inCons: Not a hit against just enterprise, but I wish rental car classes matched auto industry classes. A full size rental is not a true full size car.

2.0 MediocreMar 22 2021
Cons: After we arrived in the destination city, I called to arrange a time to pick up the car and was told they were out of cars. I asked how they allowed the reservation to be completed when there was no availably, they claimed it happens all the time.
2.0 MediocreMar 21 2021
Cons: There were no cars yet y’all rented to us.
2.0 MediocreOct 28 2020
Cons: We were set out with a bad tire that kept losing air. I aired it up many times. Took it to a Hertz office who sent us to a Firestone dealer for repair. The tire had been repaired but was leaking. We took our rental time to do your maintenance work. Then corporate decided it needed an oil change after we had waited for the approval and repair of the tire . and would no release the car. We were give $50.00 for our time and trouble of doing your maintenance, rely cheap for our loss of use and dangerous condition.

6.4 GoodApr 8 2019
Cons: I kept getting an error message when I attempted to book a better option, but the compact option worked. The car had a tire out of balance and had stains on the ceiling. I’m just thankful that it had cruise control, though.
9.2 ExcellentMar 10 2018
