Yes, car requested was available and ready to drive when I arrived. Agents were ready and able to quickly get me on the way.Lower cost will always sweeten the deal

They told us our appointment was at 12, but the store closed at 12. When we got there a couple minutes late (thinking we wouldn’t even be allowed to pick up the car early) they were closed and we had to go somewhere else to rent a car. Very stressful and disappointing.
7.6 GoodOct 20 2020
The staff was friendly and the car was great. I also really enjoyed that you could pay for gas up front and not have to fill up before returning the car.When I arrived they first said that they would have to clean up a car and I would have to wait. This was frustrating since I had reserved way in advance and I was on a schedule so that was slightly stressful but luckily they were able to find one that was already cleaned and I was able to leave right away.
5.2 OkayOct 20 2020
I liked ho the staff tried to accommodate me regardless of the inconvenience.Communication and efficiency. Made a reservation for a SUV and none were available. Had to wait an excessive amount of time and settled for a car. A car in which I did not like.

9.6 ExcellentDec 30 2019
Staff was super friendly and accommodating, especially given the busy holiday season (we rented on December 24th). I always get exceptional service with Enterprise and is one of the biggest reasons i keep coming backThere was a lot of quick turnaround on that day and the car i got did smell of smoke from previous renter. This was a first time that this ever occurred, so it was the exception, not the norm. The car otherwise ran beautifully, was a 2020 with only 2k miles on it. I informed the staff of the smoke smell of when i returned and they were extremely apologetic.

Easy pick up and return. Car was ready, but this was supposed to be a smoke free car and it reeked off cigarette and marijuana. The smell leeched onto our clothes and hair every time we were in the car. So noticeably that others noticed the smell on us.

3.2 MediocreNov 24 2017
Worst Customer Service I have ever experienced. Period.When I dropped my vehicle off the location was closed. This was not disclosed ahead of time. I called Hertz and had by far the worst customer service experience of my life. 1.) The number for reservation changes (on receipt from pick-up) sent me through at least 10 advertisements including: T-Mobile, Direct TV, and even a Drug Rehab institution. I never made it to an actual Hertz menu. 2.) After the ridiculous experience calling reservation changes number, I called road-side assistance. This is where my experience turned from bad to horrible. The first person I spoke with could not answer my very basic question (will I be charged for leaving the vehicle when there was no person to check it in). I asked to speak with her manager. 3.) The manager was by far the worst costumer facing employee I have ever worked with. The Manager (only identified as Mark, employee ID# 2710176) refused to answer my question. He refused to connect me to customer service (because according to him they would not help me), he refused to connect me to his manager (because "we are not going to make any changes for you") and he finally hung up on me. I will never rent with Hertz again. I travel weekly for business and work with customer service and retail employees and I have never imagined a company representative treating a customer so horribly.

Mislead by franchises proximity to airportI showed up to the airport Hertz desk at O'Hare airport only to be told that, not only is the Stone Park Hertz facility many miles from the airport but should I hire a driver to deliver me there, it would be closed for the night by the time I arrived.
