I had paid for the rental car in full before picking it up. I was just charged over $450 dollars in additional fees and services I did not ask for.Reviewed Jan 10 2024

Car smelled like cigarette smoke. I didn't know I could take the Hertz bus so had to wait a very long time for a Dollar bus.Reviewed Nov 29 2023
review fromkayak
Pros:Very easy and simple pickup and drop off.Reviewed May 18 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:Staff was helpful and the drop off was VERY quick and easy.Cons:Computers were down when picking up my rental, so there was a long line and long wait to complete the paperwork. Then, after the paperwork was completed, they had to radio someone to bring up our rental (a minivan) and we waited more than 20 minutes for someone to bring it. I went back to the counter and asked if the van was somewhere we could walk to and pick it up and they radioed again. Then I watched as a porter went to a minivan that was a short walk (maybe 100 yards away) and drive the car to the front of the building.Reviewed May 10 2021

Cons:Vehicle smelled like Marijuana BAD. I know it's legal now. But you should have cars designated for weed users.Reviewed Apr 19 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:After standing in a line for an hour to get our car, we were told they had no cars available. We had made the reservation January 14th and paid in full. We were to pick up the car March 26th. Thankfully a friend let us borrow a car. We have not yet been refunded and it has been 10 days. Needless to say we will never use dollar rental again.Cons:Better manage the cars availability and contact customers far in advance if they can not fulfill their commitment. Also, provide refunds immediately if they can’t provide the promised car.Reviewed Apr 4 2021
