Shawn was incredibly friendly. When we asked if we could change our online reservation to a bigger car, she took care of it quickly. Brandon went over the condition check with us and was also very friendly. We chose Budget just because it had a one-way car available for a short-notice reservation. We will actively choose Budget in the future because of the level of service we received courtesy of Shawn and Brandon.

Pros:

Easy drop off

Cons:

The car type I ordered wasn't available when I arrived, even though I booked with Enterprise specifically to avoid that experience that I'd read about often in Hertz reviews. They offered me a full size pickup in its stead which I did not want as I was going to be driving/parking in the city. A different, slightly larger car arrived and I was offered that for an extra $10 a day. Even though they didn't have my reserved car, they refused to budge on the price for the slightly larger car until someone else called and offered more money for the pickup they initially offered me at no additional cost. I understand business means money, but don't dangle a slightly bigger car in front of me when you don't even have the one I reserved. This location only cares about money, not customer satisfaction. Very disappointed in this company.

Jared waited on me both for my car pick up and return drop off. He was excellent. Kind, polite, professional and knowledgable. In fact, everything that you would want or expect from a valuable employee. He certainly is a role model for his co-workers.

Cons:

Because I had the blessing of Jared waiting on my for pickup and return - my experience was fantastic!!

I need to discuss a serious problem with pickup, the worst customer service I have ever received. I would like this unprofessional behavior addressed with the employee. It reflects very poorly on the company itself and was response received was definitely not needed.

Pros:

nothing. I didnt rent a car.

Cons:

Enterprise has a policy that you cannot have two rental cars out at once. I have an Enterprise rental car at my home, because I recently got into a car crash and I have an insurance-provided Enterprise. When I went on vacation, I assumed I could rent another Enterprise. It turns out they have a policy for only one car at a time, which they didnt detect when I booked the car, or when I called them to confirm my reservation 24 hours out. As a result, on vacation, I got to the Enterprise (which was not near any other car rental places) and found out I could not rent a car. I had to cancel my reservation and lost half a day of my vacation before getting a rental car somewhere else. This was a completely avoidable situation if Enterprise's IT system would have auto-detected this in advance. But beyond that - its just a stupid policy! Why wouldn't they want me to rent two cars, pay them MORE MONEY, and be a happy customer? I called Enterprise to complain, and talked to a customer service guy who said somebody from Corporate would call me to talk about my situation. 5 days later, nobody called. I'd still like that call.

I rented a car, when I got there after signing papers , the informed me they were giving me a Nissan work truck. The out side of the truck was terrible. Scratches, dings, dents, paint stains, over all it was dirty and a mess. The inside was somewhat clean. Most everything worked. Could not secure vehicle, the cab sliding window in rear, was broken and no latch. Key fob had a bad battery. Had to use key to lock doors, FOB gave me trouble starting vehicle. Only had less then half tank of gas. It was a one way trip with a drop off. I don't know why they wouldn't give me the car I rented. I rented a car because my wife had fallen at the airport and did located her shoulder a d suffered a fracture. We spent the day before in the hospital, where the had to sedate her to get her arm back in place. She was bound up to keep her arm in place and was on mild medication. She was very uncomfortable on the ride home. Stiff riding suspension. I don't know if I would rent from Hertz again. Depends on your response.

Pros:

The mini van ran well and had enough comfortable seating!

Cons:

I would really appreciate some compensation as the Pacifica Minivan we rented and prepaid in full way in advance was absolutely FILTHY and terribly dirty inside and out! During this time of Covid and since you advertise Hertz is abiding by Covid cleaning protocols this was just the opposite! The car was so dirty we had to go have it vacuumed and wipe down with Lysol wipes and picked up amount of dirty cups and trash! The exterior was also filthy and we couldn’t even see out of the windshield with all the bugs so we had to pay to go have a car wash done! We prepaid for this vehicle way in advance and this should not have been the case when we were rushing to leave for our trip! We were extremely disappointed and would like some compensation! Thanks
