The staff was helpful when we picked up the rental van. The van wasn't super clean but wasn't bad. the van also had some electrical issues - the dash said a door was open that wasn't and it also said the tire pressure was low and it wasn't.We rented the van for one twenty-four hour period and prepaid for it through Kayak. Over that twenty-four hour period, our credit card got charged over $700. The charges all went away and things ended up fine and accurate, but seeing those charges on my card was a little unnerving. When I called the facility to ask about it, the gentleman I talked to was polite, respectful, and helpful. He told me to wait a day or two and if the charges were still there, to call him back and he'd get it straightened out.

The staff member I talked to was nice, I was in and out quickly and the rates were fine for the car I was driving (Chevy Sonic).I dropped off my car on a Sunday and the office was closed. I had been told to park in any of the open numbered stalls, but when I arrived the lot was full of cars that had probably also been dropped off during closed hours. It seems like they need a bigger lot if there are going to be so many cars, it was not easy to navigate, especially in the dark.

The manager, was not friendly, asked him if he need the insurance that I paid for, he said no didnt need to see it, didnt take me to the rental, pointed at it in the parking lot, and said thats it, didnt come out and do a walk around, for scratches or dings. suv had a very small fuel tank.the service, could of given me alittle bigger SUV, seens I was driving to flordia. couldnt write up, for me to get the suv a day earlier, so had to call the corporate office to get that done, they didnt understand why he couldnt of done either. nothing to write the time, date, milelage down.

They charged $195 in hidden fees! Now I have to run around and figure how how they did it so I can contest the credit card charge!

Low rate for a one-way rental!I was thrilled to find a one-way rental for under $100. The Elantra was nicer than I expected and so fuel efficient.

I will NEVER EVER do business with Enterprise!NothingThey make it impossible for you to rent a car. Everything is fine if you have a credit card. You can use debit, but they have to do so much extra. My main issue was, even though I had to money to rent the car, I couldn't because I was not a resident of the state in which I was renting the car. Why does that even matter? Then because of legal stuff, another person cannot rent the car for you. I could not even be approved as a driver due to not having a credit card in my name or being an in-state resident. Maybe Enterprise has these rules on their site, but when reserving through a third party site, the FAQs, and rules and regs can be overlooked. The worst part was the customer service. The Enterprise workers continually gave me a series of wrong information with no remorse. I called before I even arrived asking if I could pay with a debit card. You think at that point, she could have told me I had to be an in-state resident. Then another worker said I could just run over to my bank and get a credit card. Was she insane? You cannot get a credit card same day. You have to be approved then the card takes a few days to get to you. I needed the vehicle that day because I was leaving the next morning. Enterprise wasted 3 hours of my day and were not apologetic at all or offered any alternative solution. It all worked out in the end,no thanks to Enterprise. I canceled my reservation (Thank God, Free of Charge, because I would have raised hell otherwise!!) I rented a Uhaul no hassle whatsoever! GET IT TOGETHER, ENTERPRISE!!! In my book, you are the worst!

Free upgradeDue to a long line in the Lafayette office and another customer who changed his preferences for a car at the last minute, the clerk kindly gave us the other customer's original reservation, a Camaro, at no extra charge. He also made it easy to return the car by not requiring it to be returned full of fuel. This was an excellent experience for our First wedding anniversary overnighter.The credit card charges took one week to appear, making payment confusing.

Small office with only one workerThe guy who helped us was really nice. Very convenient pick up/drop off location.There was only one guy working, so when we came in the office no one was there. He was in the garage vacuuming a car. Too bad there isn't enough staff to have someone cover the front desk and someone else clean cars.
