If I understood the pick up policy, you can no longer get the car early or there will be extra charges. This could cause problems if you had to change flights.

Easy pick up and car was cleared of snow.Drop-off parking lot sidewalks were impassable as the snow had not been removed.
6.0 GoodDec 21 2018
Car was good; sales associated experience horribleCar was nice, clean and was very happy with it. Drop off was simple and easyMy experience with customer service was horrible. I was the 4th person in line and it took me over 30 minutes to get my car. The sales associate showed NO intent of trying to "speed up" the process. Rather it seemed as though she kept it slow! For some reason the first 2 customers were able to just get their contract and keys and go (though the check in process was slow). Then for some reason the 3rd customer (the one right in front of me), she decided it was necessary to go out to the lot and "show" then the vehicle and do a "walk around". And as she left the counter, gave me a snide grin and said "i'll be right with you". An overall bad experience and would have expected much more 'awareness' to the situation.... I'm going back to my routine rental company at this location... Welcome back Enterprise.

The Ford Fiesta was a nice little car. Nice to drive.The parking lot when I picked up the car was treacherous, very icy. Much better when I brought it back.

A bit bait & switchEasy to pick up and drop offEven though I requested online to pick up car at 10 am, email confirmation said noon. I had to call and inquire and was told weekend rate didn’t go into effect until noon, so had to pay $36+ more than anticipated.
8.8 ExcellentMar 23 2017
Friendly staff, knowledgeable and made things convenient. Even though I had a problem. Loved the vehicle Online booking, and no prepay needed, no cancellation fee.The false advertising on price...$180 online...but taxes and fees...OMG what am I an idiot to you. $240, when I was done. A 33% increase? And fees for what ,are these just made up?. How come the world population cannot speak clearly of the need for these items and where they derive? As a business if you are imposed upon by governance to set aside funds for some reason, you cannot simply pass that to your customer in a "Fee". This become a PRICE INCREASE. I own a business and do not charge a fee for hazardous wast, fire safety, potential acts of god etc. At that point I was trapped, (nice small print, faded btw) This reeks of a sincere attempt to be dishonest and barely follow the governing language. Try plain English, at a fifth grade understanding next time. Also, if you NEED a credit card and not a cash card, this MUST be displayed CLEARLY prior to any commitment or arrival at the location. I was lucky and was able to transfer funds from an account to my credit card after I arrived for pick up. Had I known I would have done this days in advance. I loved the overall experience but felt like I was being maipulated into a behavior.

ruined our vacationOur flight was cancelled at 3 am. I called Alamo to see what could be done and was told that it could be changed but would cost 500.00 more. No discussion. I tried to see if someone else could pick up our car as we could get a flight the next evening or that evening at a different airport-NO. I was told to call the local office and they were not opened There was no negotiation, no sympathy, no expression in voice. I spent a lot of time making my vacation plans and was very sad that they could not be worked out due to non negotiable phone center operators. (I tried twice)
9.6 ExcellentFeb 20 2016
y flight was late and Alamo stayed open to get us our car. I can't say the same for their competitor at the airport.

poor drop offclean comfortable car, reasonable ratesdrop off area was not marked, it was pouring rain uncovered and no place to drop car. No staff on Saturdays where all other rental booths were manned.
10.0 ExcellentApr 11 2017
Needed an extra vehicle for a weekHertz had a very reasonable rental to use around town for a week. Service desk was very informative about the vehicle. The inspection of the vehicle before leaving is key.
4.0 OkayApr 9 2017
JalopyThe service desk lady was nice enough. The price was cheaper than Enterprise.I picked up my vehicle late at night. It was dark and it had been a long day for the service desk lady who admitted she hadn't inspected the car yet. She walked me out to the vehicle, there was no vehicle inspection performed. The Jeep Compass came with dents, cracked bumper corners, a broken fog lamp, missing panels from the bottom of doors, and an annoying change oil light. These were previously known as evidenced by the white X's around the damage. Throughout my 11-day trip I felt like the muffler must have had a hole in it because at 50 mph I felt I was driving a motorboat. Too loud!

I liked that there was another rental company nearby.Place was closed at the hour booked. They had changed their hours and didn't update the website or Google maps. There was just a printed message with the new hours. Luckily was able to rent from a different company.
8.0 ExcellentJun 30 2020
Staff was awesome, vehicle was used previously by a heavy smoker and truck reeked of smoke. This is not a reflection of the local enterprise, it’s a smell that is very difficult to get out of the vehicle.
10.0 ExcellentSep 21 2018
La Crosse vacationWhen your flight comes in after 5pm you have to come back the next day to pick up the car - that is the only negative. The gentleman and lady took excellent care of me!
6.0 GoodMay 30 2018
Staff friendly, given free upgrade mostly because only vehicle available.Airplane arrived on time 9:28 pm, car rental closed at 9:00 pm even though we had a car reserved no one there. Had difficult time getting to hotel from airport & back in morning.

3.2 MediocreJul 31 2017
Wrong vehicleWe reserved a minivan to transport 7 people, 3 of them in car seats, from Lacrosse to Minneapolis for a family wedding. When we went to pick it up they did not have a van. Gave us an explorer with 7 seats but no room for anything else. Had to have two people and most bags get a ride with someone else. Enterprise said we could switch out the vehicle in Minneapolis. I spent and hour on the phone trying to work that out. They would not bring us the vehicle so we had to drive 40 minutes to the airport and wait 45 minutes to get that switch done and then 40 minutes back.

Çar was clean. Checkout was fairly quick and easy.Bought insurance thru Kayak but then again thru enterprise because desk clerk suggested it might not be enough. Feel a little deceived.
