Everything was really smooth. They had 4 different cars to choose from at pick up and drop off went very quickly.

It would have been better if the attendant located my reservation with the reservation number as opposed to scanning my drivers license. It would have saves 30 minutes.

Enterprise had great customer serviceThe Nissan versa was a horrible car for a long roadtrip and not what I wanted. Handling was very poor on the highway as the whole car shakes. The cruise control did not work and there was greasy fingerprints on the inside of windshield. Very disappointed with the car and I reserved a midrange Mitsubishi and all they had was Nissan versas. I plan on upgrading to a better vehicle for the trip back

10.0 ExcellentSep 17 2018
Outstanding customer serviceReally the whole experience was great, they were very quick at processing me when I went to pick up the car, even though my reservation was only made an hour beforehand. Everyone who worked there was nice and friendly, I interacted with 3/4 employees.The price ends up being more if you don't have insurance and whatnot, about $44/day. So keep that in mind.
10.0 ExcellentJun 25 2018
Polite and helpful personnel and the added convenience of returning the car to a nearby location from the original pickup site. They waived the fee for that service. Very nice. The manager at the Huntington site in Alexandria bent over backwards to assist us. Definitely will use Enterprise again.

Very nice carGot a luxury coupe so that was a very pleasant surprise. Fast ride and felt just right for our vacation.When I was first choosing a ride, I was told the car had apple CarPlay, but it in fact did not have that so putting on my navigation was a bit difficult at first but we made it work. I got the 2018 q60 3.0t awd.

I wasn’t sure if I’d actually get a car. I booked my car after Hertz had closed the day before a holiday and it doesn’t seem that their stock of cars was updated and communicated to Kayak. In the end it worked out but I was left to wonder, given a high number of requests for cars from this location

No car availablePickup location was convenientCar was not available when we arrived. It had no gas and dirty inside & out when we were given keys. never given return instructions
2.4 MediocreNov 9 2017
2 cars with issuesConvenient pick-up location (in our hotel)First car had a defective key (and got stranded) and an empty windshield wiper fluid tank. Not great when on the highway. We got a new car because they could not change the key, had to go over the whole process of paperwork, checking scratches etc again. The second car was dirty, both inside (smelling of smoke plus Febreze, yukky large spots on front seat) and outside: first thing we did was clean the outside mirrors. Checked windshield wiper fluid again: empty! Asked for a different car: none available, except in a different class, and apparently this was not a reason for an upgrade. In addition, the 2nd car was less comfortabel than the 1st. Oh, and, this is the first time that the driver's name had to match the name on the credit card, even if the owner of the credit card is present and can identify himself!

Bad Hertz! Bad Hertz!NothingThe wait for the car put me into a time crunch. The car that they brought was old and dirty, windows so dirty I didn't feel safe driving. The representative did apologize for the dirty car. The next day I was able to barely squeeze a few moments into my day to return the car for an exchange. Again, the wait was so long, I was time crunched again. The car this time was newer, reeked of cigarette smoke, had just over 1/2 a tank of gas, and had windshields so coated with smoke residue that I had to stop to buy some window cleaner. When I returned the car, the only adjustment they made was to waive the tax on the rental price.

A 50% mark up from one day to the next was unbelievable. If I could have moved my travel plans I would have.

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some National Harbor car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in National Harbor.
