Cons: Was told upon returning my car that the roof was damaged. It was not inspected when I picked it up and I know the damage was not on my rental. I'm disputing the claim and want to see a photo which wasn't sent to me. If they say it was on my rental I will never use Alamo again.

Car was fine, but it cost a fortune
Pros: The car was in good condition. Pickup & dropoff were simple and straightforward.
Cons: I was sold an upgrade with some very ambiguous wording that effectively tripled the base cost of the vehicle. Insurance was twice as much again. A $66 rental ended up costing over $350. Customer service has so far been totally unreceptive to my complaints.

Wonderful staff!
Pros: I broke my foot a few days before my arrival so getting around was difficult and your staff went above and beyond to make my experience so easy! Thank you for that! I also got a brand new car. How bad can that be?
Cons: The only thing I didn't like was there was no owners manual in the car. I had no idea if I was driving with my brights on.

Awesome Customer Service
Pros: The entire experience was great!
Cons: One minor issue, it appeared the car had been smoked in. We were not sure, but the car did have an odd smell for the first day or two after which it subsided. All things considered, fantastic experience. Thank you, Larry & Gretchen

More money than expected.
Pros: Counter staff in PSP airport was very nice. Service was relatively fast. Car was new.
Cons: Price ended up being slightly more than Imagreed to on Kayak. First time this has happened to me. Additionally, I returned the car two days early and no adjustment was made to price. I found this quite disappointing as many other companies I have used will do so.

Car rental Palm Springs
Pros: The car was fuel efficient and clean, and got me from A to B
Cons: The GPS system was out of date so a few errors occurred. There was very little leniency for dropping the car back later. I would suggest using a 24 hour return time as most companies do. Trying to charge me a much higher daily rate soured the rental - however they were reasonable when discussing this.

Great service. Sneaky charges
Pros: The young lady helping me was very sweet and helpful. She went out of her way to try to find me a specific type of vehicle. The price was great and the same price I was quoted on Kayak (after I had them remove additional insurance and gas). Service was great! I will be renting from them again. Just have to pay attention to the extras they try to add.
Cons: I didn't like how they still tried to sell me insurance even after I explained my credit card offers insurance, I have State Farm AND I purchased the insurance through Kayak for the rental car. Also, she offered me gas at $2.06 (or something low like that) and explained how I wouldn't be able to find it any cheaper so I agreed to allow them to fill it up when I got back and saw the $80 charge on my bill for gas. I immediately made her remove that fee. They charge $2.06 but charge for a completely empty tank. so if I only needed $10 worth of gas it didn't matter. They were charging as if they had to fill it completely up. It only cost me $60 something to fill it up from empty in Palm Springs. Not a fan of the way they try to rip you off.

PSP just off the airport
Pros: The Enterprise service staff were friendly and accommodating and reimbursed the cost of the taxi from the airport. The pick-up and drop off location is NOT at the PSP airport terminal despite the address being Airport Center Dr. The PSP airport terminal rental location is on Tahquitz Way. The ONLY negative was getting a taxi ride from the airport. Understandably, the taxi driver wasn't thrilled at getting a 7$ fare to drive 1/2 mile when he could get $80 to go to a resort, but our cab driver was a royal jerk about it. Thankfully, Enterprise shuttled us to the airport after we returned the car. All in all, a good rental experience.
Cons: See above.
4.4 Okay
Oct 3 2016
Pros: It was nice coming out of the hot summer, they were the only car company with a convertible.
Cons: The deceptiveness of their location. The address is on Airport but when the called to confirm they reminded me I would need to take a taxi to pick up the car since there was another Enterprise at the airport which prohibited them from picking up. The car was filthy and all scratched on the outside. No one new how to lower the roof. It was way more of an ordeal than it was worth. I'm a huge Enterprise fan, just not this location.
2.0 Poor
Oct 15 2016
Cons: Was quoted and purchased on line for $211.00. Upon pick up price went up to $311.00 because you didn't have the car I chose??? Funny! As I delivered to drop off another customer ahead of me was told the same BS story. First and last time for me!!

Nov 11 2016
Pros: The vehicle was great !!! Clean almost brand-new !! The two people that took care of us at the airport in Palm Springs were amazing they went above and beyond to make sure we got our vehicle right there on the spot and honored the other price as opposed to charging us three times as much like the people on the toll-free number want to. Dropping the vehicle off was great to very convenient and very easy.
Cons: When I got to Palm Springs airport at 9 PM and I went to pick up my vehicle I was told that the place closed at 12 PM and then I would have to wait two days Monday to get my vehicle. I went to the enterprise location at the airport and that you people there were wonderful they understand my dilemma they did the right thing and helped us out. If a place as special hours they should let us know straight away so we could make other arrangements. And also not try to charge me more money for the convenience of picking up my vehicle at the airport as opposed to seven minutes away outside the airport

Pros: The car was nice and clean
Cons: The location is not convenient, you have to take a cab to get there , they didn't open until 8:00 am , our flight left at 7:30 AM, so we had to pay an extra $50.00 to drop it off at the airport Enterprise

Scam artists with nice cars
Pros: The car itself (shiny new convertible mustang was great.
Cons: They couldn't find the reservation I booked through Kayak, so I had to reserve at the desk. This led to an estimated price of $100 more than my $430 online booking - not cool at all, but nothing compared to the scam they pulled when I returned the car - $720 was the final charge. I returned the car on time with a full tank of gas, and was running late for my plane, and they spend twenty minutes trying to get their printer to work and figure out the price difference, concoct literally six different prices ("well actually it should be X") as they fumble through their archaic reservation system, at various points circling around to how it was ultimately my fault because I signed the contract which gives them the right to ignore the initial estimate, while still never coming up with the real numbers that could have led to either the initial estimate or the final price. Incompetent bullshit artists.
