Meh
Pros: No line
Cons: Agent didn't put my Hertz number in the record even after I asked her to. Car had high mileage.

Pros: pick up and drop off were very easy. The vehicle I received was good. It was also a great price. The agent was super nice and friendly.
Cons: I asked for the EZPass but discovered we did not have an EZPass. I'm glad that I looked before we set out so we would were prepared to pay cash. It was the easiest solution instead of trying to exchange it.

Pros: Smooth from pick up to drop off. Even received an upgrade to full size at no additional cost.

Oct 23 2016
Cons: When I picked my car up from my parking spot, I accidentally got in the wrong car (I was supposed to take the car in spot 402 and when I saw the sign for 401, I assumed 402 was the one next to it when in fact it was the one across from it). While the mistake was mine, the tone of voice of the gentleman at the check out booth was very accusatory. He didn't say anything impolite but his attitude did not make me feel like a welcomed customer and instead like he was a police officer pulling me over and questioning me.

exactly what i wanted/expcted
Pros: easy pickup process, clean, new-ish car. friendly staff
Cons: the closest gas station is 2 miles away from the car rental center. make sure you plan accordingly for drop off (Hertz's prepaid tank deal is good, i did not drive nearly enough to make use of it)
10,0 Excellent
Oct 31 2016
Cons: hard sell for expensive options at pick-up, leading to loss of confidence that the clerk had my best interests at heart. I ended up buying the full tank of gas even though my destination was only 30 miles away and used just a quarter tank; it would have been nice for her to help me figure out the best option rather than push for expensive add-ons.

Never again
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Car was dirty and smelled. Inspection on car was expired. Had to take the car to another rental spot and exchange. My time and my gas to do that. New car was not full of gas. Attendant said gauge broken but when I filled it...worked fine. No apology .... nothing for my trouble. I will avoid Hertz completely. Too many other car companies.

Exceptional experience!
Pros: I have rented from this office many times for work and they have always been professional and accommodating. Although they're often very busy, they always greet me with a smile and help me as quickly as possible. The cars are always clean and relatively new. I would recommend this Enterprise location to anyone!!!

Credit card insurance hassle and no toll transpond
Pros: It was nice that they offered a free bottled water.
Cons: I rent with Enterprise all the time in Chicago, and I always waive the insurance because I have coverage with my credit card. That's always been fine, and unquestioned. Here they made me wait while they called my credit card company to confirm the coverage. All other times I've rented from Enterprise they have provided a toll transponder. I had left the lot before I noticed one was not provided. The inconsistency is frustrating, and given that there was a toll a very short distance from the lot it would seem to be a reasonable thing to warn renters of.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: The rental wasn’t even at BWI, I had to get a can 40 minutes to the location. Only to find out they don’t take debit card. I was stuck in a bad neighborhood with no rental car

Great deal.
Pros: The car was great; service was friendly. I liked how Enterprise dropped us off at Penn Station.
Cons: A long line when we dropped the car off. I'm glad we weren't in a hurry.

Cons: I asked for BWI and you switched to another address. So I get to the airport and they don't know anything about me , but have a car that is $46 more. I will never Kayak again. Enterprise was fine, don't use Kayak!

Same issues over and over
Pros: Location
Cons: I rent pick up trucks often. This is an issue for Enterprise apparently because in the past, I've gone to the location to pick it up and they don't even have pick-ups available. I've started calling the location to confirm the existence of the vehicle ahead of time. This usually works. If they don't have it, they say so and I move on to the next company. In this specific instance, Enterprise called me 30 minutes before my pick up time to tell me that Yes, the pick up was there, but Sorry, it has a flat tire and won't be available. They suggested I try another location about 20 minutes away. So, I'm rating this rental as 0/1 because it didn't occur.

Pros: Even though multip[le people were working at the facility only one was handling customers. I waited over 20 minutes until I saw the reservationist only to find out that they did not have the car I reserved and I would have to wait at least another twenty minutes for them to clean and servce another car in a different class of vehilces. I cancelled the reservation, called an Uber which picked me up in 4 minutes and had to spend more than two and a half times more on my round trip car fare than the cost of the rental. But, at least I avoided an embarassing situation and got to my meeting with only minutes to spare. Enterprise in Baltimore is totally unreliable for a business customer.

Kayak booked for wrong location
Pros: I booked a rental car to be picked/dropped at Baltimore airport through Kayak; however, the booking was done for a different location, about 30-40 miles from the airport. I did not realize that at the time of booking, as I had entered BWI as pickup/drop off location and thought that the address shown with my rental booking was for the airport Avis location. This was my first visit to Baltimore and and I have no idea of the name of roads for airport Avis location or otherwise. KAYAK SHOULD MAKE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR AT THE TIME OF BOOKING THAT THE RESERVATION IS FOR DIFFERENT LOCATION, PARTICULARLY IN CASE OF AIRPORT, AS NO BODY KNOWS/REMEMBERS AIRPORT LOCATION ADDRESS FOR EVERY CITY. the Avis staff at BWI airport was good and helpful. Avis 800 customer care sucks, was dishonest and quoted much higher price than that quoted at the airport office.

SCAM
Cons: The facility was not at the airport. The facility was closed before I was even reasonably able to travel the 30 minutes from the airport to get there. They transfer you to their "sister" company at the airport and apply "airport" fees to hike up your reservation. They steal your money with a smile on their face.

Never again
Pros: The car worked.
Cons: They were rude when we picked up the car, they were incredibly rude when calling our insurance provider, whom we know personally. They were incredibly vague about the drop-off policy and threatened an abandonment fee when I even brought it up. I called corporate to resolve the issue and the people I spoke to, serveral people, we're even more rude, dismissive, and insulting. I was out in hold mid-sentence and transferred without any notification to the stor, which had no idea why I'd been transferred. I completely regret using them. The car had an air freshener hanging from the nirror, but still smelled.

Service
Pros: The car was decent but smelled funny, change the oil light was on.
Cons: Service was terrible, was promised unlimited miles before booking but it wasnt true, they said faster checkout with a major credit card but still had to jump through many loops to prove I had my own insurance even after acknowledging that my credit card would cover me, a way for them to try and sell me unnecessary add ons. Tried to explain it to the associate but she shrugged me off telling me it's policy, false advertising is what it is.

Safety issues !!!
Pros: Nothing to like in this place
Cons: The cars are Filthy inside out. they don't take time to clean them, i had to change 3 cars to finally agree on one. the first one had a bold tires, the second one had scratches all over the car but you can't determine the damages as the body is dirty. the last one was OK with a bad tire sensor that kept displaying an error every time you start the car plus a change oil message that kept prompting. If i have time i would report them to the BBB. Not worth the money i paid. VERY disappointing that kayak list them on their website. i use to trust kayak!
