2.0 MediocreOct 30 2018
Pros: had to cancel and get a refund. when called they did not have a car available. told me it would be 3 hours. I had a meeting to attend that I was unable to make. I rented the car for a specific time and paid for it a week ahead of time. Will never rent from there again. Inexcusable!
10.0 ExcellentAug 30 2018
Great companyPros: People and carCons: Everything was great
9.6 ExcellentApr 2 2018
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off. Efficient and pleasant staff. Would rent from this location again.Cons: Car was clean overall, but smelled strange, like a previous patron (?)
10.0 ExcellentJan 10 2018
Pros: The pick up and drop off were both quick and simple.
3.6 MediocreDec 22 2017
Cons: Car was filthy
9.6 ExcellentOct 8 2017
Pros: Car worked very well, efficient gas mileage, no mechanical problems, clean inside and out, satellite radio (compact car).Cons: Staff took quite some time to get people checked in, which may have been because of their personal discussions during their work (which seems endemic in the service industry in the U.S.) They were, however, polite. Engine light came on, on the day I returned the car. When I informed the desk they seemed non-plussed and rationalized it as a glitch, without even checking it. I hope they check it for the sake of the next renter. I had hoped to return the car at a different location but was informed the fee was 125$, about the same as the total rental cost! So I returned at the same location, despite the inconvenience.
2.8 MediocreAug 17 2017
Chicken bones under the seatPros: The age of the car and the gas mileage was great.Cons: I had to wait for 5 hours for a car after pickup time and then when I finally got the car it was filthy and needed air in the tires. There were chicken bones under the seat, dog hair on the passenger seat and greasy fingerprints everywhere. I had to wipe down the inside of the vehicle just to use.
10.0 ExcellentJul 3 2017
Easy drop offPros: Easy drop off and ride back to my house.
10.0 ExcellentMay 7 2017

6.0 GoodJun 25 2017
It was OK it could have been betterPros: It was OK it could have been better.Cons: Hey just picked up the car had a little problem with it before I went out of town had to fix flat, had a screw inside the tire . I called back to Enterprise they wanted to put me in a van I said I wanted something like the size car that I rented and paid for . They said they didn't have anything and I ask if I could drive to Birmingham , he said that it is Father's Day weekend and then they said they didn't know if they would even have one at that location. It didn't sound like they want to really take care of my problem so I didn't like the manager He seem to have an attitude that I was calling about the rental and I am a company

2.0 MediocreSep 17 2016
Horrible servicePros: Not muchCons: The car I reserved was not ready. Employee was rude and stopped helping me to eat a biscuit. Had to get manager who was not much help. Upgraded to a Cadillac with broken touch screen dash. Only allowed Spanish language. Bad experience
6.0 GoodAug 17 2016
Pros: It was very helpful that we could pick up the car in a non-airport location and drop it off at the airport we were flying out of.Cons: We had a reservation but had to wait for the car to be cleaned when we arrived at Enterprise. The cleanliness of the car was fair, but not great.

2.0 MediocreMay 5 2020
Cons: Booked the car but when I went to pickup the car the place was close
6.0 GoodApr 7 2017
Went to get carPros: The rental price.Cons: Credit report refused me to be able to rent car. Since reservation was made on line over the weekend it left me scrambling to get a rental. I would have been willing to pay a double deposit to secure car. On a side note, when you are dealing with an emergency, this is not how you want to be handled.
2.0 MediocreJan 2 2017
Pros: I wanted to be charged from my debit card but they charged me from my credit. Why I was forced this
2.0 MediocreNov 9 2015
Cons: Budget rental is a bad business setting up a rental through you all was a breeze once you get there for the pick everything is totally different I don't see how they are in business very unprofessional
