2.0 MediocreJan 6 2020
Pros: Nothing, they refuse to provide a rental car asking for the second driver to have a credit card or a debit card with two bills showing the residence address. Ridiculous, second driver should only need a driver license as long as I provide a major credit card. Enterprise is a complete nonsense - untrained employees.Cons: Train your employees!
3.2 MediocreFeb 4 2019
Cons: We had to cancel because we needed a 4 wheel drive vehicle. They didn't even have one on the lot. When I called a Hertz nearby, not only did they have a 4 wheel drive available, but for $20 CHEAPER!
10.0 ExcellentFeb 3 2017
As advertisedPros: No surprises. Simple process to getting the car for one day on short notice.
10.0 ExcellentJan 19 2017
SmoothPros: Prompt service, starting with a phone call right after I booked the car, to let me know when the vehicle would be ready for me. Fun to drive the Dodge Charger R/T! Many thanks to Susan for the courtesy ride and for making it to my work shuttle on time. You're a great driver :).
8.0 ExcellentSep 21 2016
Car Rental FeedbackPros: Car was a great car for driving around california. Quite zippy and very easy to parallel park. When picking up car, I felt it was a bit dirty outside and inside. Looked like Car had been vacuumed but windows, dashboard and and steering wheel were dirty. A simple detail would solve the problem so the next client can be assured a clean driving rental vehicle. I would rent again from both Enterprise and Kayak website.

5.6 OkayAug 27 2019
Pros: The staff was quick but I’m disappointed that I left my rings in the cup holder and when I called an hour later I was told nothing had been left in the car. The rings aren’t even worth a lot of money - they have heavy sentimental value to me.Cons: Being able to trust the people who work at Hertz.
5.2 OkayMay 12 2019
Pros: The car was running.Cons: Hertz scheduled a rental car pick-up time for a time when the location was closed. When my wife checked to confirm the operating hours of the location, Hertz informed her that she would need to pay an additional $115 to change the pick-up location and refused to allow her to speak with a supervisor.
8.0 ExcellentMay 9 2019
Pros: The price was amazing, employees were friendly and the return process was quick and easy.Cons: Initial process took a while, only 1 person working the desk. I must have arrived at a busy time ... they took those returning cars over me, knowing I was waiting longer ....
10.0 ExcellentNov 8 2018
Pros: Everything went as planned. The Hertz location was fantastic. The price I was quoted was honored.
6.4 GoodMar 1 2018
Cons: Wait time. Changed office location from pick up to drop. I choose this location because it was close to train but new location where the drop off was added a lot of transportation time.
6.8 GoodDec 14 2017
All was well till I received the billPros: Car was nice clean and fueledCons: Place was difficult to fined, check in clerk made sure we know how she felt about the place. Then we received the bill, at some point without talking to us we were upgraded we only found out when they added $18.01 to our bill for the upgrade.

8.0 ExcellentFeb 14 2021
Cons: The only downside was waiting 30 minutes for the shuttle to take you off site to office. It added additional time on trip, but overall they were very efficient and friendly.
2.0 MediocreJan 26 2021
Cons: Stayed open for regular business hours. Closing at 4 is ridiculous.
10.0 ExcellentJan 24 2021
Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful!Cons: Everything went well to customers satisfaction.
4.0 OkayDec 28 2020
Pros: Friendly staff.Cons: I returned the car 2 days early and did not get a partial refund! Also the customer service center representative was awful and not at all friendly.
4.0 OkayNov 3 2020
Pros: The staff was helpful, that being said I just received a claim form Las Vegas where I dropped of the car that I had damaged the car many weeks after returning it. I returned it in the same condition as when I rented it. I wouldn't recommend them because they seem to be poorly organized. The audacity to attempt to get me to pay for a windshield is astounding.Cons: Again the staff was fine, the returning of the car seemed to be very easy - That being said when returning the car the staff member just asked me to hand over the keys without doing a post vehicle check. If there is in fact damage to the windshield it would have to have happened after I drove it and I can not be held responsible.
8.8 ExcellentOct 31 2020
Pros: The price and the flexibility for drop off.Cons: Mixed messages from customer service and the first car I picked up was broken.
