Rude Counter Agent
Cons: The reservation expired because the time it took to get from the airport to the counter was unavoidably extended. The counter agent told us the reservation expired and then told us we should have arrived to the counter on time and then tried to up-sell us a larger and more expensive car. We moved on to the Alamo counter and were very happy with the service and price we received. I would not use Kayak or E-Z Rent-A-Car again.

Excellent Customer Service; Smoky car
Pros: Our rental agent was amazing in Seattle! She was quick, efficient, did not try to hard sell additional insurance. In addition, she was kind, professional and had excellent customer service skills.
Cons: We picked up the car around 9:00 pm, and the car was parked in a dark area of the garage. I did a walk around inspection and the car looked great, with a few minor scratches. I did not think to check the interior. The interior was clean, but the front seats were really stained and there was a burn mark from a cigarette on the driver's seat. We were also missing a floor mat on the passenger side. But, the worst part was the awful cigarette smoke smell. It was so bad that we often drove with the windows open. My rating reflects the smell; and I will always check the interior before driving away!

Overpriced gas, complicated pick up
Cons: Gas was $6 a gallon upon return, which is standard for rentals, but still terrible. The pick up process was not streamlined, a lot of "give this person this paper", which they didn't need. The companies have computers, use them.
Oct 19 2015
Cons: The first car they gave me clearly had mechanical problems. Also, the attendant did not check the physical condition of the exterior of the car with me. When I came in to return the poorly functioning car for another, I asked for my discount rate (via Kayak) and the woman at the counter said the computer automatically changes it to the full rate when exchanging a vehicle. I insisted on my original rate since the car was performing badly, and I waited around for another 20 minutes while they tried to override the function in the system. I did get a decent car eventually, but it smelled like cigarette smoke. I probably won't risk using them again.

Excellent choice of vehicle
Dec 22 2015
Pros: My last experience with Alamo was excellent. I had some troubles with my credit card and the Alamo representative was very patient, kind and friendly, and helped me figure out my problem. Extremely satisfied with Alamo.

Great check in!
Pros: Liked the fact that you could pick out the car you wanted. Liked all the attendants they had to check us in. The long lines went very quickly.
Cons: Not your fault but we could have picked out a better car. It was pretty noisy.

Outstanding Vehicle and Counter Service
Pros: Rented a Dodge 1500 Pickup for a specific purpose and it more than satisfied the job in addition to being comfortable and relatively good fuel economy (for the load).
Oct 22 2015
Pros: good price!
Oct 26 2015
VERY pushy salesman during pick up! "Living on the
Pros: I liked the car we got for the price. The drop-off process was great as well.
Cons: I didn't like how pushy and judgmental our agent was at the counter. He kept pushing a larger car and add-ons (e.g., insurance). It was obvious to us that he was scaring us into getting the insurance (when I have sufficient coverage of my own). "We usually don't like letting our customers get a [small] economy car with no insurance." "Those cars are the size of a Fiat cut in half." ...when we declined the insurance..."Living on the edge, huh?" We couldn't help but leave feeling a bit negligent for our decision, which is not something that I think a sales agent should do. Please no scare tactics at pick-up!
Oct 30 2015
Pros: car was in good condition and process was smooth.
Cons: seatac rental shuttle is very slow
Nov 11 2015
Pros: I liked that is was a nice car and had the backup feature that was wonderful!
Cons: Missouri plates... couldn't help but think that people were judging us because of out of state plates. As a tourist in a new city I tend to be a cautious driver.
Pros: We were so stoked to get a Subaru Impreza! The staff that helped us when we picked up our car at 1 AM at Sea-Tac were so friendly and sweet, as were the staff who helped us when we dropped the car off. The process was super quick and easy, will 100% rent with Dollar in the future.
Oct 13 2015
Pros: Even the attendant spent a good 5 minutes trying to upsell me items, they were straightforward about it and not pushy. And the price that was quoted was the final price. No extra airport fees, etc. And was pleasantly surprised that I ended up getting a Subaru BRX which was really fun to drive
Oct 13 2015
Pros: The value and ease of rental experience.

Seatlle tolls are a license to steal for car rente
Pros: A comfortable fuel efficient car at a reasonable price
Cons: Dollar contracts with a company to pay tolls on behalf of it's clients. They charge a $10. fee for doing this -- all for a $1.80 toll I got for being on the wrong road. It is extortionate and the state needs to take action against Dollar for it's inappropriate financial abuse of visitors to Seattle.
Oct 20 2015
Pros: Prius hybrid for a compact price
Oct 21 2015
Cons: Assigned car was not what I had in mind. They would not change it without an additional charge. Ended up using a different company.
Oct 26 2015
Pros: Check in was quick and easy. Return was the same. No issues.
Oct 27 2015
Pros: Good customer service, great car! No issues.
Oct 28 2015
Pros: Car reeked of pot smoke (Seattle). I had to call customer service to report it so I would not be charged. Never should have rented in this condition.
Otherwise, everything was okay
Oct 29 2015
best rate & best rental experience
Pros: I am an express memeber and my name and location were on the board w/ the exact car I requested. rate was best in 5yrs!
Cons: When I first picked up the car they quoted me $39 and when I dropped it off it was $324! I kept it an extra day but that still didn't add up. I tried to call them on the phone and I was on hold for 40 minutes before I got to speak to someone and they still couldn't explain why they charged me so much. Never renting with them again!

Killed me with addons
Pros: Nicole and dimed me on everything. My wife wanted to drive they said that is a $13 charge...LATER I FOUND OUT IT WAS EVERY DAY!!!! THE RENTAL WAS $18 BUCKS A DAY.....RUN FROM THIRTY TO KEEP YOUR MONEY
Mar 30 2016
Cons: Newish Corolla had inadequate tires, virtually no tread. Crossed the passes, lucked out on weather - just flurries, not laying. Irritating not to have cruise control - can't believe you don't get that back when you sell it.
Apr 4 2016
Cons: The website site quoted the rate at $68.00 total- by the time we paid all the taxes it totaled $178.00 would appreciate a more honest quote. Otherwise all was good
Apr 13 2016
Pros: nice employees
Cons: drop off fee too expensive
Apr 14 2016
Pros: Great price
Cons: Too much time trying to upsell insurance, car and gas.
Car rattled a lot for a newer car.(tailpipe I think)
Apr 25 2016
Cons: They really pulled the hard sell on their expensive insurance. It was clean and everything, but the rental was cheaper than all the add ons for insurance.
Apr 25 2016
Small car, easy to park and great value.
Pros: Great value, was perfect for two people.
Cons: Car smelled suspiciously like marijuana when we received it and could have done with less up selling by the agent, but over all just what we needed and great for the price.
May 3 2016
Pros: Great price and good people.
May 4 2016

Disappointed- SEA-TAC to Vancouver
Cons: I rented the car to get from Seattle to Vancouver- they gave me a tiny compact Nissan because it had Canadian plates-yet still charged me an additional $200 for returning it for them. They should have at least removed the drop-off fee- or given me the car that I had originally selected.
Sep 6 2016
Pros: Car return was easy and quick.
Cons: Car was too expensive

2 hour wait
Pros: My wife and I arrived at Seattle at 11:00pm , Enterprise was closed and they steered all the customers to Alamo , we made our reservations for a car days before , unfortunately all that was for nouthing, it was like we were new customers at Alamo , all the enterprise customers had to rent from Alamo, the only good thing that came out everything was that Alamo honored the price from the reservation.
Cons: The process
Sep 18 2016
Pros: Car was clean and ready. I was an hour early and no problems
Cons: Initially they said they rate was different than my original reservation, I didn't mention anything and waited. When I dropped off the car theto charged the correct rate without me saying a word. And my reservation or something was through a different system at the pickup so others were being helped whIle I continued to wait for some 2.0 reservation system. Confusing for me and the staff it seemed.

A quite pleasant experience at the Seattle-Tacoma
Pros: Very quick service - the automated Kiosk is one of the better ones I experienced. Personnel was friendly and courteous and professional about the cars. Price was outstanding for a full size sedan.
Cons: At this particular location and at the particular time and date and turnover of cars at the lot very fast, and selection of a particular class of vehicles appeared to be limited for that reason. Nevertheless, we were happy with the Nissan Altima as a full size sedan selection.
Cons: Several vehicles I chose - but didn't drive away - wreaked of cigarettes! Are you guys charging/fining people afterwards when they blantantly disregard the agreement terms that say NO SMOKING - because National is clearly NOT doing anything to actually clean the horrible smell from the vehicles. This is a big problem I always have with National and in general the rental industry effectively encourages people to smoke in their vehicles as the do nothing to enforce - or recitify the problem after the fact.
