5.6 OkayJul 9 2020
Cons: The first car we were given was dirty - animal hair in the vehicle and the gear shift appeared to be chewed up. The second car we got was below average.
2.0 MediocreMar 15 2020

9.6 ExcellentMar 17 2019
Pros: Friendly staff. Quick and efficient service.Cons: Only a properly cleaned car in the exterior.
10.0 ExcellentNov 10 2018
Great experiencePros: The car was in great condition and the whole process was so easy. They even gave us a ride to another location in Auburn after we dropped off the car so we weren’t stranded.
10.0 ExcellentOct 31 2018
Excellent Customer ServicePros: Zach was wonderful in taking care of us. Unfortunate that 4 of his workers were picking up or dropping of people, but because we had to wait, he made sure we got an upgrade at no extra cost. So grateful for the larger vehicle.Cons: It was a bit disconcerting to realize the insurance I bought was third party, and we had to do the vehicle inspection for no insurance. Fortunately there were no incidents requiring the use of the insurance.
6.0 GoodAug 25 2017
Pros: Outside key box for after-hours drop-offCons: They did not have the truck that I had reserved. Luckily, my equipment was able to fit in a van, which they did provide as an alternative.

7.2 GoodDec 10 2016
I thought i was renting a car at SEATACPros: Problems were solvedCons: I reserved a car for my trip to Seattle. The system actually reserved a car in Kent!!! So I got there and I was told that I had to take a cab to Kent ( aim not from the Seattle are and I have no clue as to where Kent is. However it would defeat the purpose of renting a car. And the clerk told me that there were no cars available, I was not offered the help or anybody called the Kent location to see if they could take the car to SEATAC-No help at all from the Budget SEATAC location!!. So I got on Kayak and reserved a vehicle at the same location I was just told there were no cars available.!! I rent from Budget several times a year btw.
8.8 ExcellentAug 12 2016
Pros: It was easy.Cons: I didn't know that I had to return it exactly at the time I picked it up. I was told it was to the minute. That added a bit a stress. When I booked it I didn't know exactly when I would be picking it up so I estimated and I got there early and had to sit and wait until that time or extra fees would have been applied. I think there should be some flexibility.

2.0 MediocreMay 2 2021
Pros: I went there and my car was not available at all and my rental didn’t go through. Now I have to call kayak or Hertz for refund.Cons: Make sure availability is there before booking
4.0 OkayOct 21 2019
Pros: I booked my rental but when I get to the counter they didn’t accept my debit card nor my other countries credit cards because they didn’t have chip reader... I loose my time.Cons: Accept all cards or cash.
10.0 ExcellentAug 14 2017
Pros: I loved the 2017 Ford Focus I got. I was great to drive.
5.2 OkayAug 3 2017
Pros: Finally got the car.Cons: I prepaid for the rental in February to pickup at noon on August 26th, but the rental was not available until 2:30. The Hertz representative on site was not very helpful. I had to call Hertz directly before I finally received the service I needed. All this was happening while my wife and 4 kids were at the airport waiting, and hungry for lunch.
6.8 GoodJun 25 2017
Who knew there were 2 different "airport" locations!Pros: When I finally got my rental car, it was very nice, new, and clean. The girl at the Hertz desk at the Marriott was very personable, and even walked out to the car with me to show me some of its features. I would definitely rent from the Marriott airport Hertz location again.Cons: When booking my rental car, I chose the "airport" location in Seattle. Upon arrival I took the shuttle to the huge car rental location, waited in line over 1/2 hour, only to find that I needed to go to the Hertz desk at the Marriott airport hotel. So, I had to lug all my luggage around the rental car building, find the shuttle back to the airport, then find a different shuttle for the Marriott, get there and get my rental car. I was very frustrated as it took over 90 minutes to do this. If there are 2 "Airport" locations for Hertz, they should specify which one!! Next time I travel to Seattle I will know, and will actually specifically seek out the Marriott location. Not only was it less expensive there, there was no wait, and the customer service folks were all very helpful. Hertz just needs to indicate which location you are renting from.
4.4 OkayMay 7 2017
Gas Overcharge Due to Switched CarsPros: The car was clean.Cons: The car gas tank was 5/8 full upon pickup, but the card said it had a full tank because we were registered for a car with a full tank and given the key for a car with 5/8 tank. Because the documentation was not corrected at time of pickup we were charged $50 extra for gas at drop off.
9.2 ExcellentApr 18 2017
Good ServicePros: Easy to pick-up, easy to drop-off. Close to the airport but without the taxes. Service man was pleasant and office was nice in Marrott hotel. No up charges.Cons: A little more than we'd have liked to pay, but who doesn't like to pay less?!
10.0 ExcellentNov 10 2016
Pros: Pick-up and drop off were easy at my location. Only charged exactly as quoted. Nice, clean car that handled well.
8.4 ExcellentSep 29 2016
Pros: He gave us great service
10.0 ExcellentJul 28 2016
Great pricePros: Ease of rental, got lucky with a brand new car, nice features, easy system for pickup and dropoff.Cons: Had to walk a bit from the airport to the mariott location as I didnt realize it was an off airport location. However it still turned out better than expected in spite of this.

Closed early but didn’t tell people with reservations.Pros: NothingCons: Closing early for the holiday is fine if you let people know that have reservations to pick up a car. Showing up and finding out is very bad service. Never again.
10.0 ExcellentAug 26 2017
Great service, great car, friendly staffPros: The 2 guys there were friendly and more than helpful. The car they gave us - a Ford Fusion Hybrid - was new and great on gas. Would recommend this place to anyone needing a car in Kent, WA!
2.0 MediocreJun 27 2017
Cons: Will NEVER use them again! Went down the road paid twice as much but the service at Enterprise was much better..had the worst experience at Avis...they need to learn how to communicate...
7.6 GoodMar 12 2017
Cons: Cost more to change reservation by two hours. Also car had very squeaky brakes.
2.0 MediocreMar 1 2017
Good at taking reservations - bad at reserving a cCons: They did not have a cat available for my reservation. You're good a taking the reservations but not actually reserving - which is the most important part of the reservation process.
6.0 GoodNov 26 2016
Inside smelled like peePros: The car is AWD, has good gas mileage.Cons: The inside smelled like pee, and the Avis people said that was normal.
2.0 MediocreJul 24 2016
Unable to accommodate minor change in travel plansPros: Absolutely nothingCons: My flight was delayed, so I had to pick up the car at 10PM instead of noon, or even noon the following day (I had agreed to pay the full price). I tried to call the local Avis for three hours the day before to clarify my reservation. Nobody at the local office answered. I called literally 50 times. Nobody at the national office could help. The next morning (still before arriving in the city of the rental) I tried calling again. Finally after 2 hours and 30 attempts the manager finally answered and couldn't help me at all. She had no suggestions and kept saying "it is what it is." This was the worst rental experience of my life. I will never rent from Avis again.

Pros: NothingCons: Don’t call me 3 hours before pick up to tell me you can’t honor the rental. Also hold Economy accountable for having a valid contact phone number. Phone number on confirm is for Zeeba and the other is for an agency in Florida. I live in Kent WA.

Pros: I really enjoyed the spaciousness of this Ford Transit 13 passenger vanCons: The pickup address was incorrect. The van had a transmission issue and it was a very loud ride in this vehicle. I had no drop off instructions.
