Beat up car
Pros: I dont understand how a Nissan with 30000 miles can drive so poorly. The engine sounded like it was screaming when the car went above 40 mph.

Jul 25 2016
Pros: + customer service was really nice at the location
Cons: - they were only open until 2pm on Sunday - they pushed too hard for me to get the rental insurance - they don't have a local phone number, and you can't reach a human on the 800 number.

Poor drop-off location
Pros: They had a bathroom in the office
Cons: There was only a tiny little sign in the front door that said Alamo. I never would have known that this was the drop-off location if Waze had not directed me here. No signage indicating where to leave the car. Improvement needed.

Amazing deal; fantastic customer service
Pros: Eryk the manager was super friendly, efficient, and helpful. He gave me a brand new Elantra for $34/day. He also suggested a great orchard for the long weekend. I will definitely go back to Alamo.
Cons: Everything was great; no complaints. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Dec 28 2015

Feb 8 2017
Cons: You shouldn't be able to make a booking for the exact time the place closes. I made a booking for 1pm. Was running 10 min late, called and they had closed. Trying to get my money back. Had to book through a different company.
5.2 Okay
Mar 3 2017
Cons: Car was not clean and smelled stale. Gas tank was not full, even though rental agent said it was and noted on agreements. Called to see if I could pick up early and was told yes, however when I got to the rental location 2 hour ahead if pickup reservation was told would cost me $40 for extra hour if I didn't return same time poor service.

Slow, but mostly functional
Pros: They had a car available on an hour's notice.
Cons: Maintenance in the parking lot brought this site to its knees, slowing down the in-and-out of vehicles to a crawl. Rep that handled my reservation had no hustle and was disconnected during conversation. I'm not asking for much, but if you aren't speedy OR personable, why do you have a customer service job? Rep was looking right at damage on the car, but didn't annotate it until I pointed it out.

Great Customer Service

Cons: Over the phone Customer Service could be better.
6.0 Okay
Mar 19 2017
Cons: I bought insurance and the rental car through Kayak, and after I made the purchase I received two emails, telling me that the insurance was not through the car rental company (Hertz) but through a third party (Allianz). When I got to Hertz, I was told that the insurance did not cover liability (only collision) so I had to pay an extra $17/d for full coverage. Essentially, the Allianz insurance that I paid for was a) not what was advertised and b) useless in Hertz's view. Coupled with the snowstorm (no one's fault of course) it pretty much ruined my trip.

8.8 Excellent
Jul 26 2016
Cons: The car wasn't ready when we got there and the person working there said he didn't have to honor the budget rental. He also said we needed to just wait until a car becomes available. When I asked him how long do we have to wait for. He said 10 mins, 1 hour, 2 hours who knows. Yep, this actually happened. Really bad customer service.

Good price
Pros: I liked the friendliness of the staff when picking up the car. Also the price was pretty good.
Cons: The car made a weird sound the whole time I was driving it. Also, the return staff when we arrived was awful. It was snowing so we were going to be a couple minutes late returning the car. When we called to ask if this was okay, because we had to get gas, the woman who picked up the phone was awful. She was so mean, so unhelpful and an all around grouch. We ended up returning the car with half a tank of gas because we were nervous the place would be closed. We were charged $9.90 a gallon because this woman had no heart or patience.

Wrong city
Cons: I entered the airport code in my Kayak search. When I went to the car rental at BDL I found out reservation was for a different city. Overall rental cost went up $100.00 over original reservation.

Mar 15 2017
Pros: I like that this time the agent was straight forward with us when we got the car. The car also reported low tire pressure about 3 days in, probably due to the sudden drop in temperature. The agent at Enterprise put some air in and cleared the message.
Cons: Due to inclement weather, the whole city was under traveling ban and parking ban on the day I was supposed to drop off the car (Tue 3/14/2017). Thus, I called 1 day prior (3/13/2017) when they issued the ban to check if Enterprise would be open at all (I suspected not), and if they weren't open how could I drop off the car on the scheduled date. They said they would charge me an extra day despite the fact that over that day, nobody would be able to rent that car anyway, so they're not suffering from any extra revenue loss. So much for "treating customers like family in a corporate world." It is all about them making money...
