Generally a good deal.
Pros: Staff was prompt and courteous. Great service.
Cons: When I arrived to pick up, I was asked if I wanted the car full of gas or near empty. This is not a question a question you ask someone when they arrive for pickup. Ask in advance via email or text.. I didn't get away from my 10:00 pickup until 10:39 which delayed me arriving at my next stop.

Nice new car, great service
Pros: The staff at Enterprise in DC were very accommodating and I was able to get my car in no time (on a busy Memorial Day weekend). I would recommend it again.

Location, Location, Location
Pros: The car was good and the reps were so nice. The process was fast and painless.
Cons: Could the pickup location be in a worse place? It took forever to find it deep inside the parking garage at Union Station and that was bad enough. But trying to get to the parking garage entrance for drop-off through downtown D.C. with its traffic, construction, and one-way, stop and start streets? It was a nightmare. The rep gave us verbal directions when we picked up the car, but a map with printed directions would have helped.

Pros: There was no booking for the price I was quoted I will never use your website

Pros: Nice car, friendly employees, affordable, convenient pickup/drop off locations
Cons: Dirty car, smelled like smoke, still had ashes scattered across the dash and center console. When I requested a different car because it smelled like smoke I was told that it didn't smell like smoke because smoking is not allowed and I must be wrong.

Pros: When I went to pick up the car I reserved, it was below freezing outside and there was snow and ice on the ground, so I asked for a 4-wheel drive and they gave me a new Jeep Grand Cherokee. The car was great and more than what I paid for. Everyone was very nice and courteous.

Benning road - D.C. SE
Pros: Ease of service
Cons: Car reeked of cigarettes the whole time I had it. The smel just didn't go away. Car was a bit out of date as well. Brakes felt like it grinded.

Pros: The folks at the 1069 Vermont Ave Enterprise in DC were incredibly nice in helping pick out my car before departing on my trip and were gracious upon return. I will definitely be renting from this Enterprise location in the future. It was a seamless and pleasant experience I will be recommending to friends. Thank you for helping make our holiday travels easier.

Pros: Amazing enterprise location. So friendly and helpful. The left blinker didn't work which is dangerous. They should be more diligent about checking those things. Great quality vehicle.
Dec 27 2016
Pros: The employees at this location were really fantastic.. Friendly, genuine, helpful.. The car was new, which was nice, but the employees really made this experience wonderful.
Dec 21 2016
Pros: Dropping it off was great, the guy was really polite and friendly and it took no more than 5 minutes.
Cons: Picking it up was a nightmare. There was one person in front of me and it took 45-an hour. If I can avoid it I will not go back to this location because I ended up almost being late.

Friendly, professional staff
Pros: The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They even credited me with an excess fuel charge because there was more fuel in the tank when I returned than when I rented it. I never had that happen at a rental car agency before.

Best car rental experience ever!
Pros: Kara helped us with our rental and she was incredible. She went above and beyond to make sure we weren't hit with hidden fees and was lovely to work with!

Pros: there was nothing to like because YOU GAVE MY CAR AWAY
Cons: No car! I thought I had reserved a car - I had, in fact. But because I didn't arrive at the time I had reserved (I was an hour late), they gave my car to someone else, and had no other cars available. We tried calling 3 others Enterprise locations but no one had a car. I had reserved a car for 24 hrs. If the staff wasn't sure I was still coming to pick it up, why not call or email? Or if they don't want to contact me BEFORE, why not contact me AFTER so I don't waste a trip to the pickup location? Completely UNACCEPTABLE and ridiculous. This is not how a car "reservation" should work. If you have a policy that customer must arrive within X minutes of car's reservation time, please make that clear so we know what the window of time is, or so we know when we need to modify the reservation to adjust the pickup time in advance. BAD EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!! Why would anyone make a reservation with Enterprise if we're not guaranteed an actual car? This was for an important trip to a hospital to visit a sick family member. Luckily I was able to get a car from Hertz.

Easy and Excellent
Pros: I had to rent a car rather last-minute, and this was the most stress-free and quick way I can imagine. Kayak gave me a great price, and the Enterprise service people were incredibly friendly and easy to deal with.

Pros: I didn't get the car, they didn't have one for me
Cons: The person at the front desk was very very disrespectful to me and my husband. He claimed that he called and left a message and since we didn't call him back, we don't have a car. He also lectured us on how we need to answer our call when someone calls. we assured him that we didn't get a call but it didn't help. This was the worst experience of my life.

Great car, friendly staff
Pros: Staff were friendly and helpful during pick up and drop off. Car was clean and fuel efficient.
Cons: Car speedometer was in kilometers instead of miles, meaning it took some calculations to ensure I was keeping to the speed limit.

Pros: The parking lot for pick up and drop off is about a block away and not spacious at all.
Cons: Parking lot away from the office

Service was great -- kudos to Andy
Pros: This office does a lot of things right -- acknowledges your presence when you enter the office, especially if there's a wait ... walks through the process quickly and efficiently ... offered a slight upgrade at no cost ... uses wireless checkout ... points out location of gas gauge & tank operation (a first in my 25 years of renting cars) ... does a thorough damage check ... and still got me out of the office in seemingly record time. Way to go, guys.
Cons: A drop box is offered until 10pm ... a 24hr would be better if it's at all possible. Car was generally clean but not spotless (previous driver had left food remnants in the hidden section of the console). Overall a great experience. I'll be renting here again.

Pros: The pickup was very easy and quick. The car was clean and performed well.
Cons: When I went to drop off the car, the gate wouldn't open, saying the garage was full. It wasn't. After a while I finally figured out that I had to drive around the building and enter the garage from the top of the hill and drive all the way down through the garage. This whole process was unclear and added at least 30 minutes to my drop off which should have been easy.

My Second Poor Experience with Dulles Enterprise R
Cons: My Second Poor Experience with Dulles Enterprise Rent a Car I have rented two vehicles from Dulles Enterprise. Both were damaged. One SUV, one full sized car. Both times they attempted to charge me for the damage upon return. On pickup, they have you inspect the car under a canopy which makes it harder to see damage. On drop off, they inspect the car in the sun. Both times I almost missed the damage because it was under the canopy. Fortunately, the brake lights of the car parked in front of me went on that revealed fairly substantial damage which I could not see under the canopy. Because the same thing happened to me twice, I would classify it as a scam. It is intentional. Further, I booked my reservation through Kayak. It said it was an “on-airport” rental. I specifically check this because I have been burned a couple times. When I got to Enterprise, they showed me the reservation was for downtown DC. So they upcharged me from $260 to $410 for the same car. I will not use Dulles Enterprise again.

Beware Trumped up Charges
Cons: When dropping one -way rental off, agent tried to indicate I had caused damage to car. She couldn't even point out what damage there was and photographs and firsthand inspection show nothing. A week later they closed out so I'm assuming/hoping they've dropped this. Charged for gas at higher rate though I asked to prepay. All DROP OFF negatives
