1.9 HorribleJun 25 2021
8.0 ExcellentJun 7 2021
Pros: Very friendly staff.Cons: Only wish there was an airport shuttle.
2.0 MediocreApr 25 2021
Pros: NothingCons: Enterprise customer service was awful
5.6 OkayJul 9 2020
Pros: Staff was nice.Cons: They did not have any vehicles available at my pickup time. An hour afterwards they had a smaller than requested vehicle available. The staff did call an hour before pickup to tell me they did not have the car available at the reserved time.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 15 2020
Pros: Friendly staff, easy pickup and drop off.Cons: Nothing.
9.6 ExcellentJul 30 2019
Pros: Courteous staff.Cons: The front sensor was broken, so an indicator light was on the whole trip. Not a big deal, but it would've been nice for everything to be working properly.
9.2 ExcellentMay 1 2019
Pros: Erin, the girl working the counter was AMAZING!Cons: The price of a compact car especially since when you’re under 25 you cannot rent an SUV at a cheaper price.
10.0 ExcellentJul 23 2018
Pros: The representative was very informative. We were told our options and was given good advice. I called on two occasions and was given correct information. I will recommend them to anyone that is in need of a vehicle.Cons: Nothing
10.0 ExcellentJun 9 2018
Pros: Very good deal for the amount of time we had the van
2.0 MediocreJan 29 2018
No car available!Cons: I never actually got a car through the Enterprise at the Charleston WV airport. I showed up at 8:30 p.m. and they told me they were out of cars and I should call back in the morning. I did that - twice, leaving messages - and never got a call back or a follow-up. Thankfully there was another Enterprise rental in the town of Charleston who had a 4wd vehicle available. I was able to rent through them, though they wouldn't match the price that I booked online. Overall a poor experience.

GPSPros: Very nice person working at the Charleston, WV airport. A great representative for your company.Cons: The GPS was hard to use. I almost missed my flight home because of the lack of clarity from the GPS led me astray. Frightening experience as I found myself in the dark in a deserted industrial area of town.

2.0 MediocreMay 10 2021
Cons: They were closed at our pick up time for reservation. I was stranded at the air port for a few hours trying to figure out a ride. The customer service was absolutely terrible with everyone we were contacted with. I will never go through this company again and will definitely spread word on my awful experience.
10.0 ExcellentMar 18 2021
Pros: StaffCons: Kayak has charged me for 14 days of rental, which, because of COVID19 issues I only used the car for 6 days. I have been told there are no exceptions by CS. Awful policies. Not wonderful telephone service. Dollar and their staff are amazing. If this cant be resolved I will never use KAYAK or PRICELINE again. period. Thank you. Ash
10.0 ExcellentMar 15 2021
Pros: Great staff! Everything was quick and easy!Cons: Communicate that depending on drop off time (ours was early) no one will be present at the desk and we can just drop off the keys.
4.0 OkayMar 8 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly.Cons: Reserved a full size. They only had a economy available. This is unsatisfactory.
10.0 ExcellentSep 1 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and quickly took care to get me my car.Cons: More clear how to utilize toll roads. There was a sticker in the car about a box that didn’t seem to exist nor was I sure how they worked in that area or how to potentially pay for it in a rental. It may come back to bite me later going through one, but that’s on me. I just wasn’t sure on policy, but it seemed like there was one I should have known.

Cons: No
10.0 ExcellentDec 22 2019
Pros: The staff was especially friendly and efficient. I had the same employee for pickup and return.Cons: I’m satisfied
9.2 ExcellentApr 2 2019
Pros: Excellent vehicle for the money.Cons: It was hard to get ahold of the local desk to inquire about changing the time and the parking arrangements for the car that we were leaving.
10.0 ExcellentSep 2 2018
Great car for driving mountain roadsPros: Our Nissan Altima provided enough room for golf bag and large suitcase. The handling of the car was very good and came in use on mountain highways of West VirginiaCons: No issues
4.0 OkayMay 24 2018
Pros: The staff at the desk were helpful and courteous. They could not have been nicer in helping me with directions and I received the car very fast.Cons: The car was dirty and I felt that it was expensive in terms of what I received. There was dirt and mud on the seats and floor.

Excellent ExperiencePros: We had a mid-size car and were upgraded to an SUV for a really good rate. Staff was friendly, professional and very helpful.
6.0 GoodJul 26 2017
Last time for HertzPros: Car was great. It was clean. Easy access at pickup.Cons: Meetings cut short a day. Rushed back 75 miles to airport for a one day deduction. They would not credit because I prepaid in full for 2 days. Told me to call 800 number. They said same thing. Rules Rules. Rules. lol. Who reads the small print anyway. We just expect large national companies to treat us fair. They also told me at pick up that the 3rd party insurance purcjased from Kayak wold not be accepted and I would have to pay for any damages immediately and get reimbursed. They lost a customer. I asked them to remove me from Gold Rewards program. My new job requires a lot of travel but I will sign up with another rental company program with southern hospitality.
2.0 MediocreJun 21 2017
Terrible experiencePros: NothingCons: Hertz denied my rental after Kayak.com charged my credit card.

8.0 ExcellentMay 31 2017
Cons: KIA Optima was pretty small for a "full-sized" car.
7.2 GoodApr 9 2017
Cons: They might want to let customers know that their ticket counter in the Charleston, WV airport closes at 5 pm on Saturday. That's kind of crucial info for someone whose flight doesn't arrive till 7 pm!
2.0 MediocreMar 13 2017
Cons: They would not give us the rental car because we used a business credit card and it didn't have our first name on the credit card. It just had our company name on it.
9.2 ExcellentOct 23 2016
Pickup/dropoffPros: I really enjoyed the hell I received from the pickup location in Charleston, WV.Cons: The help I received in Atlanta,GA was awful. They don't try to help at all. I was told I needed to wait my turn to get a receipt for my rental return.

Charleston is smallPros: Everything was satisfactory.Cons: The signage directing you were to return your call could've been better. You just park your car wherever you want, make note of the mileage and fuel. And take an elevator or stairs to the first floor and return your keys. There is nobody around.
6.4 GoodAug 15 2017
Long slow line happy endingPros: Scarcity of vehicles caused upgrade. Quick check in.Cons: Long long slow slow line. Slow computer system. Multiple people in training.
