Hertz cars without cruise control & no working cigarette port for my gPros: Counter service, great people, the guy out front cleaning the cars was very friendly-- wonderful experience. Counter staff great!Cons: The car did not have cruise control, this is ridiculous and the fleet team at Hertz should be embarrassed.

8.8 ExcellentSep 1 2017
Pros: I liked the car (Buick Regal). It was clean. The staff answered my questions and offered advice about getting to my destination that was beyond the rental experience. There was no waiting and the car was in immediate proximity to the rental desk.
5.6 OkayJan 4 2017
Expensive, older worn vehiclePros: Straightforward pickupCons: We reserved an SUV but they didn't have it when we went to pick it up and gave us a minivan instead. The minivan was older and not as clean as I have come to expect from most rental locations. They ended up charging us more than what I had expected.
