10.0 ExcellentJul 20 2021
1.9 HorribleJul 17 2021
4.0 OkayJun 29 2021
Cons: When we picked up the van, it had not been cleaned and had very little gas. The second time we started the van, the check engine oil light came on. When we dropped off the van, we were told we would be charged an additional $500 unless we vacuumed the van to remove some dog hair.
10.0 ExcellentJun 25 2021
Pros: The staff was great. Pick up and drop off was a breeze.
1.9 HorribleJun 22 2021
4.0 OkayJun 21 2021
Pros: Worst rental everCons: Car was extremely dirty with trash and animal hair. The smoke smell was terrible and burn holes in the seats. Car was loud as perhaps incorrect tire size.
10.0 ExcellentJun 21 2021
Pros: Pickup & dropoff were very smooth/simple, staff was friendly and helpful
2.0 MediocreJun 18 2021
Pros: Pick up was horrible they increased my price without knowledge from $98 to $131 and I prepaid so theu charged it without permission said its called supply in demand I was ticked I will never used hertz ever again !!! Ever !!!! They had one worker checking in so I was standing in line with 8 ppl ahead of me and probably 8 behind me and the price gouge on rental im so against it amd im sharing this with everyone i knowCons: They are slow ,deceitful ,and I will never use again plus after increasing price after I prepaid i asked can't ypu at least honor my military discount they said no cause ypu prepaid so if I was jist checking you in I coild have gave ypu a discount, so they don't honor a prepaid customer they are horrible customer service
2.0 MediocreJun 15 2021
Cons: I made a mistake in booking , had it starting day later than I needed, but hertz agents at the airport counter and at offsite location were completely unhelpful. Not a slightest effort to help me resolve the problem. Ended up canceling reservation and scramble to find alternatives
2.0 MediocreMay 27 2021
Pros: The rental facility was decent.Cons: Although I already paid for the car on-line, they made me pay again at the facility. Plus, despite having a huge fleet of cars on the lot, I received the smallest POS around. Personal belongings from the previous renter were in the car, so I seriously question their cleaning procedures.

10.0 ExcellentApr 4 2021
Cons: Night drop to return car
10.0 ExcellentJan 26 2021
Pros: Everyone at this location are very helpful and professional.Cons: I would really like it if Enterprise put floor mats back into cars. It is much easier to clean a rubber floor mat than a carpet before returning the rental.
2.0 MediocreJan 25 2021
Pros: Not much too like other than car was fairly new.Cons: Car was not clean. Had to drive with windows down the entire time due to extreme smoke smell. Trash left in glove box. We were originally scheduled to have an SUV that we booked months ago and location gave it away to another costumer forcing us to either take a mini van or a small car. Location did not inform us that they were closed on Sunday when we were scheduled to drop off either.
10.0 ExcellentDec 27 2020
Cons: Absolutely perfect , had no issues whatsoever !!!
10.0 ExcellentDec 7 2020
Pros: Super easy drop off. Efficient pick up.Cons: Nothing.
10.0 ExcellentOct 29 2020
Pros: staff was friendly and helpful, car was excellent. had no problems. overall a great experience, and i'll definitely use enterprise the next time i need a rental car!
10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly and made the whole transaction smooth as silk. As a matter of fact, due to an issue with the plates being expired on my original vehicle, I was able to get an upgrade at no additional cost, which competitors don't always offer. Checking in literally took me about minutes.Cons: I rarely have an issue with Enterprise, which is why I have only strayed once :-) I would never rent from anywhere else.
2.0 MediocreOct 5 2020
Cons: I had flight delays, which were beyond my control which resulted in my rental was given to someone else.
4.0 OkaySep 26 2020
Pros: Drop off was fine. They said our reservations were at the other location not the airport. When I booked it said Knoxville airport. So they gave us a smaller vehicle and charged 70 dollars more. They told me I booked at wrong location. Very upset. Would like a refund if the difference we were charged versus what i booked.Cons: It would of been nice to get the car and price we booked for. Will not book with enterprise again
10.0 ExcellentJul 15 2020
Pros: Staff was super friendly and helpful. Drop off and pick up was easy and quick. Thank you guys!!

2.0 MediocreFeb 27 2021
Pros: The staff was very quick to tell me that they actually did not have any car for me. So, instead of wasting what could have been hours, they only wasted one hour of my life.Cons: The rental agency could have notified Kayak that they actually did not have any cars.
8.0 ExcellentDec 30 2018
Tahoe rentalPros: The car was great. Everyone was easy to work with.Cons: Car had dog hair everywhere inside of it from driver before I’m assuming. It wasn’t a huge crazy amount but was enough to make me nervous because I didn’t want to get fined for it.
2.0 MediocreDec 5 2018
They did not provide me with a carPros: NothingCons: The agent told me that my debit card doesn’t have (something) I don’t know what he wanted! He then asked for my social security and I never give that out. So he asked for a diff method of payment and I didn’t have that! So he was not able to give me the car!
10.0 ExcellentSep 25 2018
Easy returnPros: No issues at all to return the car!
8.8 ExcellentJan 2 2018
Close call!Pros: Friendly staff, quick service, clean car in good conditionCons: Wasn't notified that the location was closing early because it was New Years Eve. I arrived just as they were closing. Another 5 minutes and I would not have gotten a car!
10.0 ExcellentDec 21 2017
Pros: Friendly staff at both ends of rental.
6.0 GoodOct 29 2017
Pick up not near airportPros: Clean, helpful representativesCons: I arrived at Knoxsville airport and the pickup location was 20 mins away, which wasn't clear at time of booking. Luckily there was a car available at the airport, but I had to spend more money to rent it! Argh. There should have been a warning that the rental pickup was so far away.
10.0 ExcellentAug 24 2017
Everything was perfect! Everyone was very helpful!Pros: Everything!Cons: Nothing!
8.4 ExcellentMar 30 2017
Good experiencePros: They just gave me the same Nissan Versa I brought to them as a one way rental. It was comfortable for me.Cons: As long as there in no wind Versa drives fine, but wind easily blows it off.
9.6 ExcellentOct 20 2016
Pros: Good gas mileage and good pep for a 4 cylinder engine.

Amazing deal!Pros: Excellent value for a luxury SUV! Third summer in a row to rent a luxury SUV from this location and we couldn't be happier!
6.8 GoodJul 24 2017
Great customer service!Pros: The people at AvisCons: The car was loud and not very comfortable
2.0 MediocreJun 18 2016
Never againPros: NothingCons: I reserved a mini van almost two months in advance. I show up at my scheduled pickup time after driving over an hour to get there. The person working the desk tells me they didn't have any mini vans available and they "upgraded" me to a large passenger van. I told him that wasn't acceptable. He told me that's all he had. I told him a phone call would have been nice. He just looked at me like he had no idea what I was talking about. So glad I called early. It was a great way to start our vacation........never again.
9.2 ExcellentMay 4 2016
ValuePros: We put 3000 miles touring the Southern Unites States. I think we filled up with 20.00 dollars each time it cost us very little.Cons: When we picked the car up the person did not explain how to drive the car s features. Where's the gas the trunk lock the lights etc. but the worst was the tolls we didn't know what to do on toll roads that bill the plate. We were franticly calling phone numbers for Avis.
