10.0 ExcellentApr 3 2020
Pros: Service was wonderful.Cons: Everything was great.
2.0 MediocreJan 22 2020
Pros: Nothing! Worst interaction I’ve ever had with ANY business! After 4 hours of waiting for a pickup, they brought me to a location that only had trucks and mini-vans available when my reservation was for a small economy car. Then they had the nerve to get upset with me for being mad! Nobody ever apologized!Cons: They could have been up front from the start and told me either that they didn’t have the type of car I reserved, or that they couldn’t provide pickup. Instead, they led me on a wild goose for 4 hours (!) and never delivered.
10.0 ExcellentNov 25 2019
Pros: The staff is friendly and helpful, we didn't have to wait at all and they found us a car that met all of our needs.
10.0 ExcellentJan 19 2019
Cons: Our experience was exceptional. The price quote was spot on & the service provided was very customer experience oriented. Told them that Enterprise will certainly eon our radar for car rental(s) in the future.
5.6 OkayApr 13 2017
Hour and a half wait at pick upPros: Car was clean and comfortable.Cons: Hour and a half wait. No instructions on where to go after check in. Charged $20 more than booking price (after tax and fees).
5.2 OkayApr 5 2017
Pros: Vehicle was clean.Cons: Staff was not helpful in describing different types of insurance and felt pressured into buying insurance. Were charged extra to change the drop-off point to the Airport because our flight times were changed and we didn't have enough time to drop it off at our pick up location. Employee on the phone was also not very knowledgeable or helpful.
10.0 ExcellentApr 4 2017
Great pricePros: Great price and the manager called later in the day to see how the rental was and see if we had any issues with it. Told us to go to the nearest location which he gave us the address and told us to exchange it for another one and they did great customer service
8.0 ExcellentMar 31 2017
Pros: Nice van.Cons: Check out took a looooong time,

8.0 ExcellentJul 10 2019
Pros: Staff at the pick up was friendly, on the contrary at the drop off was tough and stiff and not customer oriented as a matter of fact he wasn’t to care about how customer feels. I think he never heard about customer satisfaction and wasn’t trained properlyCons: Nothing could be better except the staff at the drop off you can definitely have a better customer oriented who care about customer satisfaction and customer feelings
10.0 ExcellentMar 18 2017
Very pleased with the rental process, from pick upPros: The service was fine. The free upgrade to a Ford Explorer was unexpected, but much enjoyed. A great vehicle! The whole process worked out very well.
9.6 ExcellentNov 23 2016
Great carPros: Ended up getting the car one a short notice and ended up with a great new car. Picked it up in Tempe and returned it the next day at the airport. Received prompt service at both locations. the car was very clean and drove very wellCons: The one day rental rate was a bit expensive
10.0 ExcellentOct 25 2016
Awesome!Pros: Car was very clean when we picked it up. The employees were friendly and exceptionally helpful. Bonus points for letting us keep the rental for 3 extra hours at no charge. Would definitely recommend to others and use them personally again!

2.0 MediocreFeb 18 2019
Cons: They had over hooked cars and had no cars available. We had to find a different place to rent from.
4.4 OkayMar 21 2018
Rental of SUVPros: Good on gas Ran goodCons: The Hertz desk person was rude, not very friendly. The SUV was dirty inside and not washed. I had to clean the windshield to get all the dead bugs off. I was given a vehicle that was just returned. The desk person should of made sure it was clean and could of been a little more pleasant. He didn't even walk around the vehicle to check if it was ok, told me to take pictures. He was not friendly picking up or dropping off the vehicle.
2.0 MediocreJan 2 2018
The Agent for Hertz at Residence Inn by Marriott TempeCons: The agent at Residence Inn by Marriott Tempe was extremely rude and didn't give us the car on time. We were 30 mins late and the agent made me wait and didn't give me the approximate time the car will be given to me. I had to go to the doctor so I left the place.
6.0 GoodJun 12 2017
Cons: Showed up at 12:40 for 1pm reservation. Attendant was no where to be seen. Sign on desk with phone number to call rang the phone at the same desk. Attendant showed up at 1:20. He claimed he had only been gone since 1pm. Seeing as I had been sitting there for almost 45 minutes at that point, I kindly let him know that I knew he was lying. I finally got o. The road at 1:45, just in time to hit the rush hour traffic I had been planning to avoid.
2.0 MediocreNov 14 2016
Terrible situation all aroundPros: Literally nothingCons: They called me 10 minutes before our agreed pick up time , while in Uber, to tell me they had no more cars. They provided no alternatives, no solutions, no accommodations, no compensation or any future discounts etc. Just told me I was SOL. I asked for the manager and he said it was him - Cannot explain the lack of empathy that he showed. It was pathetic for a Hertz manager to be as terrible at customer service as he was.
10.0 ExcellentJul 16 2016
Pros: Easy to pick up and drop off.
6.0 GoodApr 6 2016
Cons: Drop off location was within a hotel which was not listed on the drop off address. There was no sign outside to know where the Hertz location was.
