After waiting for 10 min they said my car wasn't available. Waited another 10 min and then canceled. Staff was not customer friendly and did not respond well to or resolve my complaints. When I said I was going to Alamo one staff member said"good luck" sarcastically.Reviewed Jan 21 2024

Pickup was easy but later we discovered the driver side front lock did not work and when you started the car up and backed up, the brakes made an awful sound. Brought these to the attention of the manager when we brought the car back. They did an investigation but we have not heard back from them.Reviewed Jan 1 2024

Cons:There was a long line at pick up. I waited about 75 minutes. There were three to four agents. So maybe it’s just the nature of the business. Also, I’m not a fan of interior deodorizer smells. But it was tolerable.Reviewed Apr 27 2021

Cons:There was a huge line of people waiting to get their cars and despite this the one and only rep left, saying over her shoulder, someone will be right with you. No one replaced her. There were 3 agents at the hertz counter right next door. It took them several minutes to acknowledge the line of 10+ people waiting at dollar. This was not a busy time at the car rental place. Dollar was the only one with a line greater than 2 people. All-in-all I waited for almost an hour to get my car which was the same amount of time it took to fly to Sacramento from LA. The reps at Hertz did not seem to care that there was this line of people stranded. No “thank you for waiting.” In fact, when I finally got up to the counter and told the rep I was surprised dollar hadn’t scheduled staff at that time, his response was “actually I think we’re going a good job.” Good customer service would have gone a long way here and it was definitely absent at dollar and hertz.Reviewed Apr 17 2021
