Cons:I arrived at 12:04 and they were closed. There was a lot of traffic and I called 15 min before noon to let them know I was on my way and they did not pick up. I got automated message indicating to call back during business hours. When I arrived, they had to still be in the building and I knocked but no one opened the door. I have not been contacted by them. I have rented from the Hertz in Soquel and have not had any issues there.Reviewed Aug 1 2016

A good experiencePros:The office personnel were pleasant, the car was clean, and everything was satisfactory. There was some uncertainty about the amount of the bill, which had been prepaidCons:The clerk was newly hired and was thus not as efficient as she will be after she has more experience. She was pleasant and followed her suervisor's directions. It was not a bad experience.Reviewed Apr 8 2017

Read fine printCons:I payed online with debit card. Couldn't actually pick up car without a credit card. Thus was in the fine print. I received no refund. If this had been made clear I would not have payed onlineReviewed Jun 24 2017

Good rental, disappointing added chargesPros:The car was clean like new, very comfortable and got good mileage. Pick up was easy and the rate was affordable.Cons:I didn't like being silently charged $20 extra for returning the rental late by one hour. Considering the daily rate was $30 this is excessive. As far as I could tell the lot was full of cars and there was minimal activity so the added charge seemed unnecessary. Even with that, the agent who finalized the charges did not mention it and left it up to me to review the bill and decipher why there was a larger than expected balance. Pretty unprofessional and this kind of nickel-and-diming will lead me to avoid this rental agency in the future.Reviewed May 24 2017
