6.0 GoodApr 18 2021
Cons: I needed to clean the windshield but there was no washing fluid in the tank. Next time I will check. I wasn’t told the office is closed on Saturday and since there were two notes in the window, one saying Open 9 -12 the other one Closed Saturday and Sunday I wasted half hour waiting
9.6 ExcellentOct 25 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful
5.2 OkayOct 25 2020
Cons: Staff at Hertz Palo Alto were quite unhelpful. Among other things, they failed to provide minimum docs needed for drop-off.
6.8 GoodSep 9 2020
Pros: The priceCons: I spoke to Hertz at 8am and 1pm to confirm my reservation and let them know I would be picking the car up close to 5pm, and a guy called me at 3pm to tell me they do not have a car for me. I was irate. He was very easy going and basically said 'sorry, my hands are tied and there is nothing we can do.' I made this reservation a week in advance, and paid in advance to be sure I would have a car. This was unacceptable. I eventually was put in touch with the manager at this location and he found me a vehicle (mid size SUV, not full size) that I was able to pick-up at 5pm. Mani was helpful and he did find a vehicle, but this should not have happened. Mani said that he asked the 3rd party rep to shut-off reservations a week in advance because they were not going to have enough cars. They had 70 reservations and only 40 cars available. That's 30 people who had their days ruined due to the overbooking
10.0 ExcellentJul 30 2020
Pros: Daniel was awesome. I didn’t realize this location closed early. When he going out I was going to be late he waited for me. The entire team at this location is 5 stars. They also found a larger and better car for. Will definitely rent again. Thanks again for an exceptional service.
2.0 MediocreNov 7 2019
Pros: I had to rebook as Hertz wouldn't honor my reservation through Kayak. Now I'm trying to find out how to get a refund.
9.2 ExcellentSep 22 2019
Pros: CarPlay integration with my iPhone. High seat position.Cons: loud windnoice when driving at 70 mph
8.0 ExcellentJun 24 2019
Pros: Staff was excellent!Cons: The online information given about payoff was not accurate - there was a $200 security deposit that I was not aware of as well as a $29 underage fee - I was only notified that there would be some fee, but not to that amount, so having the actual fee would be much more clarifying.
7.6 GoodDec 17 2018
Cons: I was not told about how to make use of the express drop after hours but the drop time was booked for after hours. I asked for a smaller car but was given a large one
2.0 MediocreNov 24 2018
It was a nightmare.Cons: While reserving the car, I chose the time of 6 PM out of the windows provided. I arrived approximately 5:58 PM at the address provided in the car rental instructions. The problem was/is the address given is to a Toyota car dealership. Thinking maybe the Hertz dealership might be inside of the Toyota dealership, I went inside and asked the information lady. She said there was not a Hertz inside of the Toyota car dealership but there was one a few blocks down the street and that's probably the one I was looking for. She provided the address and as she was giving it to me, she mentioned they closed at 6 PM. I didn't think much about that because my reservation was for 6 PM but when I arrived at 6:07 PM, the place was vacant – closed for Thanksgiving. I called Hertz customer service and the lady continued to attempt to SEND ME BACK to the address of the Toyota car dealership- while at the same time telling me that Hertz closes at 6 PM – bear in mind that it is now 6:20 PM – 6:30 PM. She finally realizes that she's giving me directions to closed places and tells me that San Jose airport will be available to take care of me, as long as I provide them with this particular confirmation number. I asked her if she was sure that this confirmation number will be all I need and she ASSURED me that the confirmation number would suffice. So I got to the airport and I was told by the Hertz representative that he could not honor that confirmation number because that particular number was only for a car at the address that he had in his computer – THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP! The only thing he could do was to do a new rental and this one had to be for two days but between the amount I had already spent and the price of the new one I didn't have enough money on my card for the credit hold. Long story short, I was able to rent a car from BUDGET but now I have a Hertz rental bill for a car I didn't rent because... 1. they gave the time they CLOSE as the time to show up to rent the car, and 2. They STILL have the address to the car dealership (690 San Antonio Rd., Mountain View, CA) in their records as the address for the Hertz car rental (816 San Antonio Rd., Mountain View, CA). I hope to get the amount credited back to my card.

Mountainview Office is Far From SJC AirportPros: I booked a car on Kayak for my trip to San Jose, not knowing that Mountain View is far from the airport.Cons: There is no shuttle, or ride offered, from the San Jose Airport to the Budget Office in MV.

9.6 ExcellentAug 5 2020
Cons: Not having to go to another store because the car they were suppose to have Waiting for me at their store Was not available
10.0 ExcellentJul 13 2020
Pros: Pick-up & drop-off were perfect! The site manager easily adjusted my pick-up time to match emerging changes in my travel plans.....and when one of our group developed a medical emergency which cancelled our trip outright, management re-did our One Way drop-off Weekly rate to become a 2 Day Local contract with no issues. The car was perfect and our travel would have been perfect as a result!
10.0 ExcellentFeb 13 2017
Pros: Fantastic service & great car & people
2.0 MediocreJan 4 2017
Cons: not getting a car at all when I showed up to the rental on the day of because THEY WERE CLOSED, and then not receiving any discount in having to book another car myself within the hour of this happening. Absolutely horrible experience. Customer service not helpful at all.
6.0 GoodJan 2 2017
Great service, crappy carPros: From check-in, pick-up, and a personal drop off at our departure gate, the customer service was spectacular. I would definitely recommend this company.Cons: The rental car was a Jeep SUV and it was a horribly uncomfortable gas guzzler. I would definitely not recommend this car.
2.0 MediocreJan 1 2017
Cons: I wasn't even able to get the car since they were closed on the day of booking. I called 3 times and was told someone would call me back to help get another car rental at the same price but no one called me back. Totally messed up my plans for the holidays. Never renting from enterprise again.
2.0 MediocreDec 28 2016
Pros: I don't have any problems with other enterprise but just this enterpriseCons: this enterprise just treat customer so cruel because they cancelled the customer reservation without any contact until we came to their office the 2 days before pick up day and they said our reservation been cancelled, with the reason that they called us (only 1 time without leaving any messages ) but we don't pick up phone. How about my email? Why don't they send us an email to confirmed? If this is the way enterprise serve customer then .... nothing to discuss. Thank you.
