2.0 MediocreDec 24 2019
Cons: The office was very disorganized at pickup. The car had not been washed. After I returned it, I got a call saying there was a crack in the windshield. My suspicion is that because the car was dirty, I missed a small crack at the time of check-out, and then it got worse because of the cold, and then they noticed it and charged me for it. I did not do anything to cause the crack, but they just don't want to take responsibility for it.
10.0 ExcellentJul 21 2019
Pros: The process was so simple. We were even upgraded to a larger vehicle.
10.0 ExcellentDec 28 2017
Why are other rental places not like this?Pros: Everything about my rental was great. The two guys working the Salem, NH office were fast, polite, thorough, and genuinely just real nice guys. Same two guys working when I dropped off, same great experience. They topped off my rental's washer fluid before I left, which is just great attention to detail, given all the road salt in winter.Cons: Nothing really. Great experience.
9.6 ExcellentAug 9 2017
Excellent customer servicePros: The service in Salem was star quality. I felt like they were treating me VIP. Very personable and accommodating.Cons: The $250 deposit I had to give to pay with my ATM card.

2.0 MediocreSep 8 2020
Cons: Vehicle size was much smaller than the reservation. Counter person was not willing to help. The tiny SUV was a bio hazard on the inside - disgusting! Left and found a rental at another location.
6.0 GoodJul 14 2020
Pros: The pick up staff was very nice and off hours drop off was easy.Cons: The car was disgusting. Given pandemic conditions and hertz emails saying they were doing a higher level of cleaning it was obvious this car wasn’t even vacuumed and we found old dirty glasses in the seat pockets. I spent two hours cleaning the car surfaces to make sure it was safe for my family. I sent emails to hertz as you can’t get a hold of anyone to talk to them and 0 response. Will not rent from hertz again as they obviously don’t take cleanliness during a pandemic seriously.
4.0 OkayAug 17 2019
Cons: Bad smoke smell in the car.

Didn’t have the type of car I orderedCons: Ordered a Nissan Altima or similar size vehicle and the smallest they had in stock at pick up was a Chevy Traverse or Tahoe. Didn’t need or want an SUV, but had no other choice. Disappointing to say the least
