1.9 HorribleSep 13 2021
I am giving them a negative rating for the primary reason they did not cancel a scheduled pick up as they stated they have to me while being in the store. It's caused me numerous inconveniences. Post 1 month, I have yet to get a cancelation email or refund despite having called hertz a few times. Furthermore when I went to the office no one was inside. At the door was a number to call when they aren't in the office. I called the number and the office phone was ringing. I had to exit the hotel, go to the parking lot to find them and advice them they have customers waiting. Outside of that, staff were straightforward, and offered the services appropriately.

The Nissan Kicks is a great car for fuel savings! I don't recommend for more than 2 people for long trips. Short trips or kids in the back seat would be okay. There is little leg room in the back. This particular vehicle had poor shock absorption. You could feel every little bump. It does have plenty of cargo room for a vehicle of its size. I don't recommend for mountain travel. This car has no power for acceleration on steep incline. My only other complaint was the traffic assist. Although I managed to turn them off multiple times, they'd turn themselves back on automatically. This was annoying because you'd set your cruise at 75ish and get behind a vehicle going the same speed. They'd slow down and your car would automatically slow down. Next thing you know, you're going 55 without realizing. Otherwise, the vehicle was great.

Marcos in particular was so helpful, courteous, friendly and polite! He answered all my questions with ease & knowledge! The cargo van we rented was clean and fresh inside. It drove amazing---a 23 hour drive for us to our destination with comfort, excellent gas mileage and very sturdy!! We have absolutely zero complaints with the vehicle and we would rent it again if we need another cargo van to transport our huge cargo load! Highly recommend!Perhaps if the rental business was open until 5 or 6 PM? Not an issue for me but for other renters it might have been helpful to have those extra hours.

I was given a compact car, and requested an economy at the pick-up location. The workers were not wearing masks at the pick-up location, and the outside of the car was completely dirty (I have pictures). I wanted to return the vehicle two days early, and they wanted to charge me an additional $140-300. I will think twice before renting with Hertz, I've never had so much difficulty and I've tried several car rental agencies.Getting the car I wanted, clean. Flexibility in dropping off, and interacting with individuals wearing a mask- for everyones safety during a pandemic.

Absolutely nothing about this hertz was enjoyable every time we would show up nobody was in the office and when we called they always said they were “outside cleaning cars” so idk it was very annoying plus they don’t allow debit cardsCustomer service and not having me drive back there three times for them to tell me something else I needed instead of just telling me everything I was going to need to even rent

I paid the total balance online and pick up was fast and easy.The car had a funky smell. I had to drop off the car by noon but the rental store was closed, employees were @ lunch. Only waited about 5 minutes for someone to arrive.

Jason the staff member was very professional and apologetic as my vehicle wasn’t available for a few hours.Third party bookings need to be guaranteed bookings, the attitude is very unprofessional when booked through third party bookings which the customer is not aware as I’m just booking online

nissanThe car gets exceptional mileage! Twenty dollars to drive four hundred miles, our trip was forty dollars, gas wise. It was clean and comfortable.That the website stated they had a car but didn't. That by half of the trip the car had non working tail breake lights. They charged me insurance for something broken! I didn't want it to begin with, the insurance.

The drop off was great, staff was friendly enoughI originally rented a sedan for the reason to be easy on gas, the one I reserved was gone, the other sedan they had needed an oil change which didn't make much sense since the plave was inside a car shop, so they ended up upgrading us to an SUV free of was horrible on gas, constantly nee

Excellent customer service!The service and price were exactly what I was looking for. The location is great as well. The car drove great too! I couldn’t ask for anything more.I would like to know how much the deposit will be on my card up front if at all possible. I do understand that it wasn’t listed on the website therefore was not the fault of anyone at the location that I picked up my car. I will still use this location for my next rental car.

Most horrible experience everWe were given a car that apparently had tire problems - not even 30 miles into our trip, the passenger rear tire blew on a deserted highway - and Avis told us it would be 2 hours before they could even come get us. There was no spare tire, so we couldn't just be on our way. I will never be renting with Avis or Budget again.

Excellent place to rent with no hassleI was a great price and the vehicle actually was great on gas for long travel.They gave me a bigger vehicle than what I originally had but I didn't mind since it was great on gas after all, and it was a very comfortable ride.
