PleasedThere was a shortage of vehicles but Pat went out of his way to help me get the car I needed. I was five hours from home and my car broke down so I was desperate for transportation to make the long drive home with three kids. I appreciate his effort to find scar for me.Not enough cars to meet the demand.

I've rented from Budget before and the staff has always been above par.You took my reservation and didn't have a car. Stop doing that. It cost me extra $$ and time.

Smelled like smoke. Awful!the Camry was nice and got great mileage.The car had a bad smoke smell. The drop off took an hour because the agent wrote the wrong millage down so I had to go into the airport and wait in line to drop the car off. It sucked.

6.0 GoodMar 15 2021
Staff was professional and easy to work with.The vehicle smelled like cigarette smoke. It took me a couple of days to get the odor out of the vehicle. I was not given return instructions and had to make the return in a Sunday when Enterprise is closed. There is no one you can speak to for instructions or help. There should be weekend check in information sheets or something on the building/door to assist customers. Not everyone has computer access or knows how to navigate websites to find such information.
4.0 OkayDec 21 2020
Drop off was easy. There was some confusion about driving on a toll road and who owned the vehicle and what I should do. I think that should be simple and clear. The stuff is cheerful if not super knowledgeable.All the vehicles were very dirty, even the one marked "clean". The vehicle they had chosen for us was only a 12-passenger after we had reserved a 15-passenger, confirmed we needed 15, and made an extra deposit. We had to go kill an hour in town and come back for a pickup which they admittedly only sprayed down with Lysol and did a quick vacuum. It was really gross and I had to clean it myself to feel comfortable putting my kids in it. There were visible smears of some substance on the dash and visors etc. The fuel was not full at pickup. I wanted to see how far off it was and it took $6 to fill it. I returned it completely full and told them, but they were apathetic. That's disappointing. *They did offer me a 10% discount for it not being clean. I appreciated that (I did not ask, they offered). This indicated they were aware the vehicle was sub-standard.
2.0 MediocreAug 16 2019
They might have had any vehicles to rent, but they didn't, they Were closed for business Sat and Sun. WTF! They couldn't have been more vague re: availability etc. Bunch of non-proff hicks.
2.0 MediocreSep 19 2018
Nonexistent coordinationThe ease of making the reservation and the attitude of the Enterprise employee.The apparent complete lack of coordination between Kayak and Enterprise. The vehicle wasn’t available. A suitable substitute wasn’t available at any of the surrounding Enterprise locations.

Not enough infoNever got to rent car because I had to have credit card to rent, even after using debit card to reserve.
8.0 ExcellentMay 12 2017
They were quick in and out the door with my rental.I was not happy with the pick up site. I requested airport pick up and I was sent to an off site location.
10.0 ExcellentMar 18 2017
Awesome serviceThey dropped me off at the airport. I had 0 issues.Pushed the insurance a little harder than I expected. I said no about 4 times.
7.2 GoodNov 14 2016
The car was not ready at pick up. It had not been checkd when it had been brought in. No gas in the tank. Tires were low. I had to take it to a tire shop to have the tires checked out and filled with air.
