8.4 ExcellentOct 24 2020
Pros: Counter attendants were nice and pickup and drop off were quick and efficient.Cons: The car was not as clean as expected. There was splashed coffee on the roof of the car and the driver side visor when pulled down.
2.0 MediocreSep 7 2020
Pros: I did not like anything at allCons: They did not have any cars on the day of our reservation even though we booked our car in advance. The whole point of reservations is to book a car and time slot. They should not do over bookings and inform us in the case of car unavailability so that we can arrange our plans accordingly.
5.6 OkayAug 17 2020
Pros: Staff were friendly.Cons: Pick-up took an hour. Company is definitely a pandemic profiteer in several respects, one example being their toll policy. Many toll booths only accept E-Z Pass and not cash so the license plate is charged, Enterprise will charge the customer additional fees in addition to the customer paying the toll. I explained were I was going to staff (inter-state) and received no mention of this. I also informed them that I did not own a car and have not driven since the pandemic started. I should have been updated on current procedures concerning tolls. Enterprise is definitely not be my first choice in the future.
8.0 ExcellentJul 19 2020
Pros: Staff was efficient and friendly; transfers were easy.Cons: I have no comment on how the experience could have been better, but this was a short, uneventful rental in which the staff did not have to display any extraordinary efforts.
7.2 GoodJun 20 2020
Pros: The pick-up staff was not friendly. the drop-off staff was very friendly. Also had a problem with pairing phone with media system. Had to go back. Thomas was extremely patient and helpful.
6.8 GoodAug 28 2019
Pros: Staff friendly and helpfulCons: But car reserved was not ready. Gave substitute car
2.4 MediocreAug 24 2019
Pros: Staff not helpful. Booked a cargo van and talked to rep one day before rental confirming pick up time, etc. When we got there - we were told that the van was in for an oil change. Took us 2 hours and driving to another rental location to get the van. Also two discussions with customer svc.Cons: Everything! Not what I expected from Enterprise
8.0 ExcellentMay 17 2019
Pros: The staff was friendly and efficient.
9.2 ExcellentMar 28 2019
Pros: Staff friendly and efficient. No wait when picking up or dropping off the rental.Cons: Needs more onsite parking designated for Enterprise.
8.8 ExcellentSep 15 2018
Pros: Manager in Bethesda assisted me. She was very helpfu6l and efficient. I needed a vehicle to drive up to new york and drop off. Although there was a surcharge for doing that it was very useful to be able to. I will definitely use Enterprise again.Cons: There was no Ez pass in the car.

7.6 GoodOct 19 2020
Pros: Staff was wonderful. Unfortunately Budget doesn't provide the location with vehicles for the day until two hours before the site opens for business, so there was a long delay from check-in until my rental was ready.Cons: Turnover could be improved for cleaning vehicles by either having more staff or providing vehicles to be sterilized earlier.
2.0 MediocreOct 19 2020
Pros: There didn’t have any cars. Had to cancel my trip and got stranded/had to uber home.Cons: Don’t rent vehicles if you don’t have them.
7.6 GoodDec 27 2019
Cons: Rates are slightly high when you consider zip car doesn’t charge you for gas.
8.0 ExcellentOct 14 2019
Pros: Staff was very helpful. Check-in was smooth.Cons: I was surprised to learn they only had SUV's available when I arrived. It still worked for me.
8.8 ExcellentSep 27 2019
Pros: Excellent staff!
2.0 MediocreAug 17 2019
Cons: There were no cars. I had to book somewhere else last minute.
8.4 ExcellentMay 29 2019
Pros: It was a holiday weekend and cars seemed to be double the price!!
8.0 ExcellentNov 4 2018
Pros: Car was new and clean & both pickup and return were good. Vehicle was larger than requested, but drove well and was reasonably fuel-efficient. At time of booking we did not realize the rental center was not within reach of the airport. Metro ride and a brisk walk made it manageable, but we did need to factor in extra travel time.
2.4 MediocreOct 29 2018
Stinky carPros: This was less expensive than the airport rental.Cons: This rental car office was inside a Sears tire store. It would have been great to know that before. The car smelled really bad when we got it. I don't think it was cleaned from the last rental. When it rained we figured out the wiper blades needed to be replaced.
5.2 OkayAug 6 2018
Misinformed by the staffPros: Quick check in, quick pick up and the car was clean and in a good condition.Cons: I wanted to change the drop off from Baltimore to Aberdeen. I asked the staff in Washington DC to change my drop off. They printed the contract saying Baltimore drop off and they confirmed to me that it is ok to drop the car in Aberdeen as long as it is the same state no extra charges applied. Which was wrong!

10.0 ExcellentJul 14 2020
Pros: The staff was very professional and pleasant.......the Manager was very helpful.
10.0 ExcellentMay 25 2018
Pros: The pickup and dropoff procedures were straightforward and uncomplicated. The car performed well throughout the trip.Cons: The car did not have cruise control, though it was not stipulated in any advertising that it would. And the windshield wipers needed to be replaced.
6.0 GoodJan 16 2018
Pickup nighmare - alter pickup locationPros: ValueCons: Arrived @ Bethesda only to find it closed. Called 800 operater said transferred pickup to 99H St in D. arrived to find he didnt transfer. Second phone call no record of transfer. Wasterd an hour on phone--no result. onsite staff intervened to get car assigned. Dont think call agent was in US. Charged me another day when i returnrd car.
8.0 ExcellentSep 15 2017
Pros: Nice to be able to pick up and drop off somewhere else other than the airport.Cons: Suggestion: for the pick up and drop off locations identify the name of the business attached to the address. For example, my pick up location was in the lobby of a hotel. Instead of just providing the street address, add that it is located in the lobby of x hotel.
10.0 ExcellentSep 10 2017
HIdden locationPros: Once I found the desk, my experience was hassle-free.Cons: Hard to find the Hertz desk hidden in a hotel on the corner. Poor signage.
9.2 ExcellentJul 2 2017
Cons: The rental office is on a busy main street, and the pick up/drop off usually requires double parking. The staff is used to this and handles the challenge adroitly, but as renter dropping of a car, it was a little nerve-wracking.
7.2 GoodApr 20 2017
Pros: I thought it was a fair price for a day rental. The car was clean.Cons: I had to wait a pretty long time for the service rep to go and get the car. Both reps were out of the building to get cars for other customers. They should find a closer holding lot.
2.0 MediocreApr 11 2017
Cons: Rude service. No car provided after 90 minute wait. Ruined our weekend family trip.
5.6 OkayMar 7 2017
Ok rentalPros: First time using Hertz. Very Friendly staff.Cons: Car smelled awful, very dirty inside. Was only given one car option.

4.0 OkayJul 17 2020
Pros: Staff friendly.Cons: The car was not clean when I picked up. I saw visible fingerprints on GPS screen, crumbs in the cup holder, and stains on both front seats. About 45 min into my 4 hour drive back to NY, the “!” Icon began to flash indicating the back right tire was low on air. I don’t typically drive so had no idea how to put air in tires or how much. Called Roadside assistance and was on hold forever. Luckily a cop pulled up at the gas station and was able to help me. These things should be checked before customers drive off w the cars. During COVID pandemic I feel that cleanliness should be a priority!

They stole from me from start to finishCons: Only 5/6 of a tank when I took the car (already down the road when I realized). Then they charged me a full extra day and $30 damage waiver when I brought the car back a couple hours late.
10.0 ExcellentApr 27 2018
Pros: car size . Luckily no line in Payless for pick up - Not the case for AvisCons: car rental return process - confusing signage and long shuttle ride to get back (on the last stop - Terminal C)
10.0 ExcellentFeb 15 2018
Great rental experiencePros: Jamie was wonderful. I'd reserved the car for 7 a.m. but was dropped off by my Uber before 6:45. Jamie saw me outside in the chilly weather, went and got the car for me and let me start my rental a little early. Excellent customer service.
3.2 MediocreOct 21 2017
DifficultPros: Nothing.Cons: First, the office was difficult to locate since it is in a shopping plaza not right on the road as it had been explained. When I returned the car after waiting for the agent to finish his phone call and acknowledge that I was there, the man at the counter was extremely rude. When I questioned the gas prepay refund I was instructed to take it up with the company. That he doesn’t represent the company and that it was expressed in the contract I had read and signed. At which point upon further questioning he provided said pamphlet. I was instructed that I should have read the fine print- and was again told to take it up with the company. Needless to say if I ever rent with Avis again I will be much more explicit in my requests since they obviously conveniently leave things out.
10.0 ExcellentMay 22 2017
Pros: The service at the Budget Rental Office downtown Wash, D.C. was exceptionally friendly. The car, a brand new Ford Edge was terrific. Want to buy one! One of the best rental car experiences I've had.Cons: Liked the whole experience a lot.
2.0 MediocreMay 5 2017
Cons: RUDE EMPLOYEES. TREATS CUSTOMERS LIKE CRIMINALS. F WITH BBB. OVERCHARGES CUSTOMERS

Great customer service despite NO carPros: Manager and her crew did their best to help multiple people not having a car waiting for them despite having a reservation ...Cons: No car waiting us and, when it finally showed up, it reeked of pot. Since there was no other car, we had to take it. We ended up calling them and replacing the car with no problem, but still a total hassle ...
