2.0 MediocreFeb 19 2020
Pros: NothingCons: They literally didn't have any cars available. Multiple people there had reservations but we were all told that they didn't have any cars and maybe someone would bring back a car, in which case we could get one. Had to cancel the reservation and get one from Enterprise instead, almost missed a wedding.
10.0 ExcellentFeb 10 2020
Pros: Service was great. I got my car within minutes.Cons: The rental uses a near by hotel parking for returns. It was hard to find parking.
7.6 GoodJan 7 2020
Pros: Car price.Cons: Car choice was limited. Office and underground car location were not ideal.
2.0 MediocreDec 31 2019
Pros: NothingCons: They didn’t have a car available. Only solution offered was wait between 2-4 hours for them to drive in cars. I was 5th on the waiting list for cars that were previously paid for and reserved.
3.2 MediocreDec 27 2019
Cons: Pick up and drop off very inconvenient, plus paid rental in advance, when I turned in car there was an extra 100. charge. Make sure you fully read the small print. I'm a hertz gold member and wa as really suprised hertz did this. Never seen it before. I will def look into other companies in future.
2.0 MediocreDec 6 2019
Cons: The customer service at this location is terrible. I will never use hertz again.

2.0 MediocreAug 12 2019
Pros: All appalling. Left stranded and no car and no help despite prepaying.Cons: Any customer service, even a crumb. It was 100 % appalling
3.6 MediocreAug 7 2019
Pros: The staff at the location we're great! I had an issue and some questions and corporate was horrible. Rude, short with answers and customer service was terrible. We will never rent from them again. How they get away with treating people in such a way is mind-blowing.Cons: Customer service. Taking the time to help their customers.
2.0 MediocreJul 25 2019

10.0 ExcellentMay 13 2021
Pros: YesCons: Wait time
3.6 MediocreOct 10 2020
Pros: The car was clean and comfortable.Cons: The service could not have been worse. We waited over an hour before we had someone finally pick up the phone and send an airport van. On our return flight, we turned our car in at the appointed 4:00 time to find a note on the desk that said “please place the keys in the Dropbox. We had expected to get a ride to the airport, but that was not to be. We walked 20 minutes or so to the airport and barely made our flight. The communication with your renters needs some work.
3.6 MediocreFeb 8 2020
Pros: Nothing. Very unprofessional.Cons: Sat and waited for an hour at the airport and the shuttle never showed up. Called 3 times, never answered. Took a $10 Uber to the office, and two young unprofessional girls were there. “I was at lunch”. After we took the car and got to the hotel, they call us and told us they left keys in our car so they came and met us and switched us cars. What a joke. The replacement car was a crappy, smoke smelling Kia Soul, nothing like the commercial with the hamsters. I had never seen a rental car in such bad condition.
2.0 MediocreJan 7 2020
Pros: Typically it is the lowest. For a reason. Even then I would not recommend renting from here.Cons: The staff is untrained, unprofessional and many give you the attitude that they will probably steal your information. The prove of having insurance. In mist car rental agencies you just tell them the name is the insurance here you have to have a policy # and fill it out. Or they fir e you to buy insurance! Wtf!!! I’m getting the impression they are hiring the bottom feeders of tre employees with fishy background. All care more in their cell phone than try to help you to rent and leave the facility. I had a reservation d as Nd had to rebook at the car agency nearby. What a completely ware of time.
2.8 MediocreJan 6 2020
Cons: Stop cheeting people with the small print ,getting customers offering unlimited miles
3.2 MediocreNov 18 2019
Pros: Staff was helpful and professional.Cons: The car was beat up, dirty on the exterior and had damage to the front, dings and dents, and windshield wipers that need to be replaced, making driving uncomfortable and dangerous.
2.8 MediocreOct 21 2019
Pros: Price was okay.Cons: Service, car, cleanliness, vehicle performance, everything. It was a bad experience. Took a long time to pick up. Car had dents, missing panels, unclean, etc.
2.0 MediocreSep 9 2019
Pros: Absolutely the WORST. I will never use Ace again. The receptionist was rude and behaved as if we were interrupting her phone conversation.Cons: What in the world does unlimited mileage mean? This is false and misleading and a waste of our time. We went back to the airport and rented from Avis. Don't rent from Ace!

2.0 MediocreSep 18 2018
Cons: Scheduled a pick up for 6 nothing says that they closed at 6. No phone call to see if we were coming or anything. Our flight was slightly delayed so we showed up at 6 10 and no car. Poor service

Long Beach rentalPros: The staff was friendly , they made picking up the car an easy process.
2.0 MediocreNov 5 2016
I never got my car.Cons: The Kayak site said there was a shuttle from LGB airport to this Enterprise location. There wasn't. They wanted me to take a cab to the company whose tagline is, "We'll pick you up." Instead, I called them and they transferred my reservation to the Enterprise location at the LGB airport. They promised me the rate would be the same. Unfortunately, they then tripled the cost of my reservation. I walked 10 feet over to the Alamo counter and they gave me a car for my original rate. I'll never use Enterprise again.

Pros: YesCons: Nothing
4.0 OkayFeb 3 2020
Pros: Got a nice jeep...Cons: After waiting 2+ hours cuz they overbooked, made me very late for an appointment which caused me to be hit with a $45.00 fee so I really didn't save any money or time -it cost me more be and the location is very strange not very confident.
7.2 GoodNov 4 2019
Cons: Had to take a taxi to another location which was $30 and then had to wait an hour for a car to be brought from the location we were at originally with an infant with us. Car had less than a half tank of gas and no one went over the condition of the car with us.
10.0 ExcellentApr 16 2019
Pros: Extremely friendly and extremely helpful. I loved it easy no hassle
9.6 ExcellentFeb 26 2019
Pros: Customer service, prompt and efficient.. provide the necessary details.Cons: Cleaning of the car, especially the interior.
6.0 GoodFeb 18 2018
Pros: Easy to find & returnCons: The car I ordered was not available, The up grade was a Dodge pickup. When we turned it in the bill went from $113.20 to $184.89. We didn't use it so we only drove from Long beach to LAX. I did call Avis and they will give me a credit bringing the bill down to $118.26.
2.8 MediocreFeb 12 2018
Delayed so they gave our car awayCons: Our reservation was for 9, however we were delayed by 50 minutes (not arriving until 9:50) getting off the ship due due a lost piece of luggage. Then we needed to wait in line for 15 + minutes. At the time of check in we were told they only hold the car for 30 minutes and our car was gone. We were required to upgrade at a cost of $15 more.
2.0 MediocreFeb 4 2018
Didn’t get itPros: I don’t know...didn’t get a car.Cons: The place was overbooked, and although Kayak indicated and confirmed that I had a rental car, and I got an Uber to the facility, there were no vehicles to be had, and I was abruptly notified jay there weren’t any coming in. There really needs to be some way of limiting rentals and preventing this issue (over booking). We had to walk to another agency with our luggage and pay more than intended...much more. But I got a car.
5.2 OkayFeb 2 2018
Wouldn't give us a car despite reservationPros: The staff at the second Avis we went to (2164 Long Beach Blvd) were friendly and competent, and got us the car we needed.Cons: The Avis where we reserved a car (264 E. Ocean Blvd) didn't honor the reservation, and gave 3 contradictory reasons why they couldn't. Several other customers with reservations arrived around the same time, and all were told there were no cars. We had to go to another location.

Cons: I was told I couldn't pick up my reservation with my card it had to be the drivers card. I left without a car and had already paid for insurance. I am out of the $ put forth for the insurance and the plans I had were ruined because they required the car. Requirements should be listed during reservat
6.8 GoodMar 26 2019
Pros: Pick up: A one gal office. It's feast or famine. She's great though....once you get up to the counter. Drop off: Less than two minutes!Cons: If Budget offered a shuttle from the World Cruise terminal to the counter...what a win win! Budget counter is inside a hotel with renovations going on. Only a one woman show and she does her very best. Tried to see if drop off at a city location instead of PHX. Only Kayak could do that.
7.2 GoodDec 12 2018
Cons: Drop off location in Long Beach hotel was not very well marked, deep in parking garage. From garage, no clear directions to dropoff desk, which was not manned at the time but web site had listed as open.

They were closed!!!!!Pros: Nothing they left the officeCons: We arrived at 10:05 and no one was at the Agency. Everyone else was at their post. We rented from Avis instead. We are done with Budget.
2.0 MediocreDec 5 2017
Pros: The car was cleanCons: The system was down and I stayed in line for an hour to get the contract. There was no one in the parking lot to help with the pick up and also drop off. They did not print or email the receipt. When I checked my credit card I realized I was wrongly charged and had to call customer service to get it fixed. Now waiting for the receipt and a refund on wrong additional charges! Awful experience
8.4 ExcellentMay 6 2017
Easy one way rental from Long Beach to LAXPros: Great, friendly staff at both the Long Beach and LAX locationsCons: The car was pretty dirty when we picked it up. Crumbs everywhere. Windshield covered in bug spatter. Looked like it had just been taken on a long road trip and not cleaned afterwards.
