9.2 ExcellentOct 31 2020
Pros: Chris at Enterprise, Beacon was my pick-up and drop-off connection. Chris has such a positive personality and knowledgeable about his business. He was quick with the transitions, got me in and out. Chris is DEFINITELY an asset to your store.Cons: The backseat area could have been cleaner, the backs of the front seats were dirty, looked like children had there feet all over them, aside from that it was perfect.
10.0 ExcellentSep 27 2020

10.0 ExcellentSep 6 2018
Highly recommend for NYC rentersPros: Our friends turned us on to renting from Beacon Enterprise and it's hands down the best way to get out of the city, so long you can pack light. The Metro North is an easy ride, Enterprise will pick you up at the station, and you get to joyously bypass alllllll the traffic in the city and get on your way. It's also very affordable and far, FAR friendlier than any other location near the city.
4.0 OkayMar 6 2017
Stay away from EnterprisePros: The car I had was really nice. The customer service was not. First off, I had no gas in the tank to begin with and they expected me to bring it back with full gas. Second of all, all of the times before I rented with Enterprise, I never had to put no more than $25, but this time, $250?!? That's insane. Third of all, why is it that I don't find out until I'm ready to pick the car up and pay them, they tell me I can't rent from out of state?! I'm from NC and couldn't rent the one in NY. First time I've ever herd that. Never again will I rent from them.Cons: The car I had was really nice. The customer service was not.

10.0 ExcellentJun 12 2018
Pros: Hertz employee was super helpful. She let me view the car before signing, and helped us review other options when we saw the trunk wasn't going to work with our 4 bags -- making special care to use any discounts we were eligible for through insurance, etc.

Pros: The Hertz representatives were helpful and focused on our needs. They helped me with a problem I was having with connecting with Lyft. So helpful!!!Cons: Not a thing!
2.0 MediocreSep 6 2017
Pros: not a single thing.Cons: When I showed up at my rental time to pick up my rental for a wedding I was in later that day, I was told "sorry, there were no more cars on the lot for the day, so there would be no car for me. When I started to question the agent, she said "you could go walk the lot and see for yourself if you don't believe me". She said there might be a cargo van i could use, but it would only take one passenger, which I needed room for more. After asking her what she suggest I do, she walked away without explanation, later returning with another agent simply telling him "he wants to talk to you" This new man told me I was "lucky" because someone had just returned a car I could take, but it didn't have a chance to get cleaned and the gas tank was only half full. having no other choice, I took the car and was not even walked out to the car or showed which car it was. I had to hit the button on the key in the parking lot. when I got in the car, there were sticky stains all over the interior, the gas tank was completely empty and the gas light was on, and the passenger seatbelt alarm beeped the entire time, even though there was no one in the passenger seat most of the time. As someone who travels bi-weekly for work, I have never experienced anything like this, especially such poor customer service. The $200 deposit taken from my credit card has yet to be returned, and another $50 charge was attempted.
4.0 OkayAug 31 2017
Cons: I was charged for Travel insurance even though I didn't end up renting the car.

Quick ExchangePros: Budget representative, Glenn, was friendly, smiling, courteous, quick, efficient. He got me into the car within 10 minutes.
2.0 MediocreAug 1 2016
Cons: I called and asked to be picked up at the station and the woman (after just hanging up several times) irritatedly and dismissively told me to take a cab. The cab took nearly half an hour (for an 8 minute trip) and when i arrived, Budget was closed, leaving me stranded in the rain in the middle of nowhere. Worthless.
9.2 ExcellentApr 13 2016
Great customer service!Pros: Customer service at both my pick-up and drop-off locations was great! My car was comfortable and just what I needed.Cons: I wish the charge for dropping off in a location different than the pick-up location was a little less.
8.8 ExcellentMar 8 2016
Great service, okay value.Pros: The service at both pick-up and drop-off was great! The staff is very helpful and friendly. The car I received was clean and in excellent condition.Cons: Car rentals can get quite costly with all the additional fees. I wish the fee for choosing a drop-off location different from the pick-up location was a little lower, especially because I barely drove the car and only used it to get me from Allentown to Poughkeepsie (approximately 110 miles). Additionally, insurance is high. It would be better if the cost was per 24 hour rental period rather than calendar day. With those extra costs, the rental price was not as good of a value as I had hoped for.
