8.0 ExcellentOct 28 2019
Pros: Quick, easy and as simple as it should be.Cons: I spoke with the representative at STS and confirmed that there wasn’t a fee to drop the car in San Fran at a different location. I picked the car up and noon and told him we were escaping the fires and dropping the car off today. We go to San Fran a couple of hours later. The office had closed at 1pm and the valet at the hotel told me there was a $25-$35 charge?
8.0 ExcellentOct 14 2018
Pros: The woman who helped me was very nice.
9.6 ExcellentAug 12 2018
Easy to find drop off at nightPros: I liked that it was easy to find, night drop was available.Cons: Being late night drop off, would’ve made more sense to me a little better instructions about what papers are being dropped off. Also, a sensor had gone off about a brake light bulb that went out en route to my destination. No one was available to inform about this, so a space on the paper that gets turned in would be a good idea. I improvised and wrote it on the side
2.0 MediocreJun 20 2018
FailCons: Nobody was at the rental counter in Santa Rosa. Ended up going with another rental company.
10.0 ExcellentJun 5 2018
Great local servicePros: Easy pickup and drop off. So much more efficient than at the airport. Friendly staff. Car was in excellent shape.Cons: Nothing.
2.0 MediocreSep 15 2017
Very confusedCons: We rented the car - went to pick it up and he said he didn't have a reservation under my name. Showed him the reservation receipt email - he then said I don't have a car available. Then something came up where he thought he had one - with a cracked windshield. He said he'd give us a discount. Tried to rent that one out but there was a hold on it. He said ok, I can get another car let me have your card. I had my debit card. Said it wouldn't pass the credit check. He said my credit must be bad. !!! My husband tried his - same thing. We don't have credit cards. We have rented numerous times with our debit cards, never with an issue. I have now been charged for the insurance. This car rental was for a very important occasion. Extremely upset and very confused.
10.0 ExcellentMay 30 2017
Pros: Very easy drop offCons: The fellow at the counter first overcharge me until I corrected them pretty quickly corrected the problem
6.8 GoodMar 13 2017
Horrible customer service in Santa RosaPros: I was surprised how nice the Ford Focus wasCons: Customer service representative at pick up in Santa Rosa could have cared less. I asked for a drop off in on place and he put another on the contract without telling me. It was very inconvenient. I called to complain and there was nothing they could do and they offered no help or restitution
10.0 ExcellentJan 15 2017
Pros: Easy drop-off. Friendly customer service.
8.4 ExcellentDec 1 2016

Cons: The car was filthy and the seats were stained. It also smelled like smoke.
4.8 OkayJun 26 2018
Fill up the gas tank before heading to the airport.Cons: Not letting the customer know that there is not a gas station near the airport. So I was charged $50 for a half tank of gas.
7.2 GoodMay 14 2018
Renting a Smart Car is an adventure in itselfPros: The car was fuel efficient and compact which helped a TON in the greater Bay Area for travels.Cons: The older model rented to me (based on the pricepoint but not entirely clear from the internet description) is an automatic that drives like a manual shift. Very specific feature of the Smart Car and was a little annoying when trying to pull a hill-side along the 101. Also, with high winds on the Richmond Bridge, the car felt VERY UNSAFE. The wind gusts were about 40-50mph and the car was swaying and wobbling in the lane. Yes, I knew to drive at a reduced speed but the bridge is 9miles long and it was a scary wind shaking 9mile drive. Something I didn't factor in.
10.0 ExcellentMar 17 2018
Easy to work withPros: The pickup and drop-off went very smoothly. The company was easy to work with and the car was very clean. This was my first time driving a smart car. It is more roomy and comfortable than I would have guessed. It doesn't have a lot of power, but it makes up for that in gas mileage. There were no issues with the car itself - it was in great shape. No complaints at all. I would definitely rent with Sixt again.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 5 2018
Pros: Great customer service. Easy and conviennt
8.0 ExcellentJan 23 2018
Pros: Gas mileage.Cons: Wouldn't want to own a Ford Fusion. Steering wheel awkward width, uncomfortable in my hand.
8.0 ExcellentNov 25 2017
Smart carPros: Actually a nice little car, my first time in a Smart car. The automatic transmission was a bit slow in shifting, but the car drove well, handled well at freeway speeds. Turned on a dime parking. Nice ride.
2.0 MediocreOct 27 2017
NO ONE AVAILABLECons: Has a reservation guaranteed for 10/24/17 at 11:30PM - when i arrived the counter was closed!

4.4 OkayMay 28 2020
Pros: The staff was great. They arranged our after hours pickup at the Elmira NY airport at 10pm last night, 5 hours after the Hertz counter closed.Cons: We were horrified to discover fa partly full McDonalds drink cup and some paper napkins in the back seat. Normally, we wouldn't much mind. But these are covid times. We were horrified that the car had not been cleaned carefully, and obviously could not claim to have been disinfected. We drove home last night worried all the way about being in that car. Unclean car is really unacceptable in these times.
2.0 MediocreSep 27 2019
Cons: I didn't get the rental because they said they didn't know I had a reservation and had nothing available then tried to pawn a truck off on me for double the amount I was originally paying. Not happy!
2.0 MediocreAug 5 2019
Pros: The staff at the Santa Rosa office was not overly friendly or helpful. The staff at the office in Bakersfield was nice.Cons: The 2019 Buick Encore that we rented broke down as we were traveling in the desert. Due to the broken down vehicle, our vacation plans were interrupted. We were not compensated in any way by Hertz for the inconvenience because we rented through a 3rd party and paid up front. Beware!!
4.0 OkayJun 25 2019
Pros: Staff at pick up was a bit rude.
10.0 ExcellentMay 15 2019

Pros: Staff was very professional and courteous.Cons: I had ordered a truck but when I arrived, one was not available. I was given a Tahoe as a replacement which worked out but if I had really needed a truck, I would have been very disgruntled.
9.6 ExcellentNov 5 2019
Pros: Very nice staffCons: When do I get my deposit back
9.6 ExcellentSep 10 2019
Pros: Robyn, the manager of the Santa Rosa office went above and beyond to help me book a last minute car. She even followed up after my trip to ensure my satisfaction. Thank you Robyn!
8.0 ExcellentJun 14 2019
Cons: There wasn’t a car available when we arrived even though we had a reservation. If someone hadn’t dropped one off our wait would have been even longer. They gave me wrong information about getting picked up. The actual check out process took over half an hour. It all made us late for our meeting.
10.0 ExcellentJun 7 2019
Pros: The employees were really helpful and nice.Cons: Having the car available when we arrive so we don’t have to wait 20 plus minutes.
8.0 ExcellentMay 26 2019

10.0 ExcellentDec 10 2018
Customer service was A+, we were upgraded to a suburban.Pros: Customer service and the vehicle was upgraded for us to keep us happy.
4.0 OkaySep 8 2018
First Class InefficiencyPros: NothingCons: Even though I had a reservation, I had to wait for four parties to go through their lengthy paperwork to rent cars...and for the lone stressed rep to answer two long phone calls...and waited yet again outside for the 'yard rep' to assist others in retrieving their cars and explain every detail in the contract (which you would think would be done at the inside desk). Once it was my turn, surprise! "We only have a 2-cab pickup truck available." I'm a petite woman. It was unfathomable for me to drive 400 miles in this huge thing. At my suggestion that I drive the pickup to a nearby Enterprise and exchange it for a car, she checked with management and returned to offer a sedan that had just come in. Given the circumstances, I took the dirty, un-gassed car immediately. Not a great way to start a day. I've used airport Enterprises with much ease in the past but may now switch to another company.
10.0 ExcellentApr 15 2017
Staff ServicePros: Initially the only car available was not satisfactory. Staff went out of their way to find a Toyota Camry which we first selected. The car was in perfect condition and served us well on our travels to Long Beach, CA. Check-in staff were friendly and helpful. Overall it was an excellent rental experience.
2.0 MediocreMar 28 2017
I made a reservation for a car that doesn't existPros: Enterprise called me within 30 minutes of making the online reservation to tell me they were out of cars.Cons: No cars were available for rent.

10.0 ExcellentFeb 16 2020
Pros: Easy in and out. Mercedes was very helpful and made sure we got the car quickly.
2.0 MediocreDec 24 2019
Pros: The staff was friendly and understanding through all of our problems with the cars.Cons: first car we got smelled so bad we had to return it after a couple hours. The second car they tried to give us smelled the same. It was like they dumped a bottle of perfume in the carpet to cover up smoke smell. The only car they had that didn't smell bad was a mini van. Not what I reserved. Two weeks after returning the van the $200 hold on my credit card is still there. Not happy about the whole experience.

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff. Drop off was super easy. Emailed me the receipt. Happy to have a smart car--but bigger cars are also available.
8.0 ExcellentJun 17 2019
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: So I had reserved a twelve passenger van and they gave me a 16 passenger van. One would think hey no big deal, right? The problem was the very back row of seats did not fold down so we had NO room for luggage. We had to bring our luggage inside the van and stack it all on the back two seat rows.

Pros: Pickup and drop off were great; however, I for got to fuel up and it cost me $131.00 for a 1/2 a tank of gas. Can you help me with this loss?Cons: What ever you do don't forget to fill the fuel tank, it will cost you ten times the amount to fill if the agency has to do it.
6.0 GoodJul 10 2019
Cons: I was told the car was in space 16 in the rental car lot. After 30 minutes of looking, and with the help of another Avis employee, I was told to look in the general car parking lot. Finally, I found it. Not happy!

After 1h fighting he gave me a smaller car for a bigger price. Just beautiful
