2.0 MediocreDec 24 2019
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.

The process was so simple. We were even upgraded to a larger vehicle.

Why are other rental places not like this?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.Nothing really. Great experience.

1.9 HorribleAug 3 2021
If we got the vehicle we requested in the first place would have been a great start, but nope they gave us a piece of crap car that ended up braking down and had to travel to two airports because NY has no cars and doesn’t care about helping people especially with a toddler. Richmond Virginia we had to threaten to sue in order to get a working car because they were looking to throw us on the street with a toddler to. Absolutely worst experience and was my first time renting to boot.

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
The pick up staff was very nice and off hours drop off was easy.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.

Didn’t have the type of car I orderedOrdered 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
