2.0 MediocreMay 5 2021
Pros: Staff is not friendly. I was told an issue with my reservation is 'not their problem'.Cons: Being treated like a customer and not an inconvenience.
6.0 GoodApr 30 2021
Cons: The Checkin experience. Never mentioned that insurance card was needed and deposit needed. Car was parked so tight that it took 6 back and forths to get out of spot. Wait to return to airport was 40+ minutes
2.0 MediocreMar 20 2021
Pros: First it took 1.5 hours to get from the airport to the rental facility, which is off site from he the other car rental companies. My wife complained to the agent about the their poor shuttle service and she was not very apologetic . I was told I needed an insurance ID, which I did not have with me. No other rental companies require one, in fact the Route website only says one is needed for under 25 years old renters. I had my insurance company email an ID to me which took 5 minutes. The agent got into an argument with my wife and told me she was not renting me a car even though I had all the necessary documents and cards. We end up getting a ride back to the other car rental to get a car there and finally got on the road 5 hours after arriving at the airport. I wrote claim to get my prepaid rental money back I am waiting for the that to happen. Lessons learned, do not rent from Route ever, do not prepay for a rental, do not get a rental from an off site company in Chicago.Cons: Rent from the all know companies, the save on the rental price is not worth all the hassles
4.0 OkayMar 16 2021
Cons: Every traveler had trouble finding this place. Once I finally found the place, I waited 35 min for the shuttle and another 30 in line at routes.
10.0 ExcellentMar 11 2021
Pros: Staff was helpful, friendly. Easy return.Cons: Waiting for shuttle from the rental building is not ideal. The deal I got on the car made it okay.
2.0 MediocreFeb 24 2021
Cons: Wrong dates and no car available
10.0 ExcellentFeb 22 2021
Pros: Great customer service and easy process
2.0 MediocreJan 31 2021
Pros: They are unhelpful and they charged me a money and I didn’t receive the service however they won’t to refund my money because my DL still read ILCons: They supposed to be a helpful and understandable and take care of their costumers especially at this time during covid19 a lot of people lost their job.
10.0 ExcellentJan 20 2021
Pros: Once I made it to the rental office, the pick up was super fast. And the drop was easy and quick and we were taken to the airport without delay. Thank you!Cons: It would be easier to explain to customers your agents are NOT in the airport car rental building so we do not waste time looking, but we can call immediately upon arrival for your van to pickup the customer. Other than that, everything went well.
2.0 MediocreJan 10 2021
Cons: Rental notification of approval prior to arriving. Rental was denied, once I arrived.

6.4 GoodMay 31 2019
Pros: rental car was beautiful economic and returning process was easyCons: waiting time to pick up was delayed perhaps more organization
8.4 ExcellentAug 17 2018
Pros: The individuals at the location were very helpful and thorough throughout the pickup and dropoffs, with clear details about the rental. They were even nice enough to let me leave again to fill up the cars tank after I had forgotten to do so prior to dropoff. Nice individuals!Cons: It would have been nice to know how much the additional insurance would be instead of being hit with the price on the spot, adding to the overall total.
3.2 MediocreNov 24 2017
Worst Customer Service I have ever experienced. Period.Cons: When I dropped my vehicle off the location was closed. This was not disclosed ahead of time. I called Hertz and had by far the worst customer service experience of my life. 1.) The number for reservation changes (on receipt from pick-up) sent me through at least 10 advertisements including: T-Mobile, Direct TV, and even a Drug Rehab institution. I never made it to an actual Hertz menu. 2.) After the ridiculous experience calling reservation changes number, I called road-side assistance. This is where my experience turned from bad to horrible. The first person I spoke with could not answer my very basic question (will I be charged for leaving the vehicle when there was no person to check it in). I asked to speak with her manager. 3.) The manager was by far the worst costumer facing employee I have ever worked with. The Manager (only identified as Mark, employee ID# 2710176) refused to answer my question. He refused to connect me to customer service (because according to him they would not help me), he refused to connect me to his manager (because "we are not going to make any changes for you") and he finally hung up on me. I will never rent with Hertz again. I travel weekly for business and work with customer service and retail employees and I have never imagined a company representative treating a customer so horribly.
2.0 MediocreJan 24 2017
Mislead by franchises proximity to airportCons: I showed up to the airport Hertz desk at O'Hare airport only to be told that, not only is the Stone Park Hertz facility many miles from the airport but should I hire a driver to deliver me there, it would be closed for the night by the time I arrived.
10.0 ExcellentNov 4 2016
Simple & FastPros: Entire process was fast & straight forward. Car was clean & had a full tank. Staff was friendly.

2.4 MediocreJun 9 2019
Cons: They didn’t have the size car I ordered. They had to give me a smaller one, which made for an uncomfortable weekend. Also, it smelled like fast food and there was hair everywhere.
4.0 OkayJul 21 2017
Bad servicePros: NothingCons: On the pickup date they had me waiting for the car and wen they finally had it the told me it needed an oil change and if I wanted the car right away I would have to take the car myself to do the oil change, otherwise I had to wait longer. The car was not even vacuumed or washed wen i got it. Also wen i got to my destination I noticed that the plate sticker was expired. When I told them about it they told me I could have driven it like that and if I have gotten a ticket they would have paid for it.
2.0 MediocreMay 16 2017
Pros: People friendly enoughCons: Line of people waiting. Then they asked for a major credit card for my second driver which she does not have and has not had this request before when signing up as a second driver. Didn't have time to deal with it. Took my own car. Also - We learned that there is no night drop-off. Will not be using this location again.
2.0 MediocreJan 15 2017
Never Use EnterprisePros: Our plane was delayed from Washington DC Reagan National. Upon arrival to Chicago's O'Hare, the rental car company had closed at 6:00pm CST. We called the 800 number to seek assistance. They would not transfer our rental to another Enterprise company near by. We were traveling to reach our critically ill daughter in Indiana. Four hours later after literally begging for help, we gave up and rented a car at three times the expense from Thrifty. Their customer service was excellent even though the cost was high. Enterprise corporate was heartless and cold at a time when we needed help so desperately. I don't care if it was offered for free. I will NEVER rent a car with Enterprise again.
10.0 ExcellentDec 22 2016
Service Service ServicePros: The location is not a typical Airport location (I had to Uber to get there), but I arrived close to closing time and it was very very busy approaching a holiday (Christmas) weekend. The entire team from the Manager Ryan to the service team (who checked my tires) to all of the counter agents were outstanding. It was a BUSY time (after a long shift) with customers renting and returning vehicles, and EVERYONE was friendly, polite, respectful... I too had had a long day and I was very appreciative of the reception and service I received. Thank you
2.0 MediocreDec 3 2016
Cons: Kayak booked the car at the wrong location..it was supposed to be at Ohare Airport Location and was not. I was not aware of it until I was flying to Chicago when the pickup location said they were closing. Nobobdy would help rebook it for same price at airport location. After much frustration I had to abadon Enterprise and book with Hertz.
