5.6 Okay16 Nov 2015
Pros: Pickup was fastCons: The form in which any damage or flaws to the car was already filled out when I got there. In all my previous experience of renting cars from any agency, this has always been a form I fill out myself and corroborate with the representative.

2.0 Mediocre23 Jun 2020
Pros: The Chico staff at Pick-up are ALWAYS AWESOME. I will rent there every time. But, my trip was abruptly halted when, on my way home Monday AM, I and my husband were victims of a drive-by highway shooting. One bullet, both of us hit. Both of us are okay, treated and released from ER, need medical follow-up for wounds and possible internal damage - long story. We think the seat belt kept the bullet from entering his abdomen - long story. AND, I bought the extra coverage this time, THANKFULLY!!!Cons: When Calif Hwy Patrol or San Pablo police seized the vehicle to look for the shell casing and more investigation, my partner and I were taken to the ER for treatment in an ambulance, without the rental. We were released Monday morning and still had to travel 3 hrs home to Chico. We took a Yellow Cab to Enterprise at Richmond Hilltop. THESE GUYS WERE HORRIBLE!!!! NONE OF THEM WOULD HELP ME FIGURE OUT HOW TO RENT ANOTHER VEHICLE, AS THE ORIGINAL RENTAL WAS UNDER INVESTIGATION. THEY WERE RUDE, COLD, UNCARING, AND FLIPPANT. WOULDN'T OFFER ANY SOLUTIONS - JUST THAT THEY COULDN'T SCAN THE CAR, WHICH WASN'T THERE, BACK IN TO GIVE ME ANOTHER. THEY WOULDN'T CALL CHICO TO CONFIRM MY CONTRACT. RELUCTANTLY THEY CALLED THE SP POLICE AND KNEW THE CAR WAS WITH THEM. I PURCHASED THE EXTRA COVERAGE. THE CAR WAS 100% COVERED AND MY RENTAL CONTRACT SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONTINUED. THE RICHMOND GUYS WERE NOT INTERESTED TO HELP ME SOLVE THIS ISSUE, WOULDN'T EVEN GIVE ME A NEW RENTAL UNLESS I LIED AND USED ANOTHER NAME AND CREDIT CARD. WOULDN'T EVEN GIVE ME A RIDE TO ANOTHER RENTAL AGENCY TO GET A NEW CAR, 5 MILES AWAY. WOULDN'T CALL ME A CAB TO GET OUT OF THERE. WOULDN'T GET OFF THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA LONG ENOUGH TO PAY ATTENTION TO ANY POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS. JUST "WE CAN'T" AND THATS IT. BOTH OF US HAD GUNSHOT WOUNDS AND ALL THESE GUYS WERE SO SO COLD. AGAIN, CHICO IS AWESOME. RICHMOND SUCKS. I'M GOING TO CALL AND WRITE CORPORATE, EVERY DAY IF I HAVE TO, TO GET SOME ANSWERS WHY THESE EMPLOYEES ARE SO UNWORTHY. I'LL TAKE THIS TO THE TOP IF I HAVE TO. BAD ENTERPRISE!!!

Pros: The staff was very helpful, friendly and all went fast and smooth. The car we rented was perfect for our family vacation. We loved it!
6.4 Good24 Apr 2019
Pros: After the issues I had, they did take $25 off my bill which was helpful. The drop off at the sac airport was very good and quick. Customer service was great.Cons: Reservation was for 8 am, arrived at 9:15, didn’t receive the car until about 10:30..also did not have the correct car that I had reserved which was economy so they gave me a small truck. I won’t be coming back to this location. Seemed to be a lot of workers that were doing nothing or joking around.

STOOD UP BY ENTERPRISEPros: One-way rental was confirmed, and when we got there they had nothing available.
10.0 Excellent17 Mar 2017
Great ValuePros: Renting a full size car for under $50 was fabulous. The staff was friendly and courteous. The car very clean inside and out. I would rent from Enterprise again.

4.0 Okay28 Apr 2021
Pros: Staff was not friendly and drop-off was not fast. I want my car to be clean when I get it because I paid the price for it. This is my first time using them and will be my last. I will go somewhere else.Cons: It's not clean. I don't even want to get in the car because there is dirt on the doors. The seats was dirty and I can see spot of left over food. I got a RAV 4 and there was no bar on the back truck to cover my belonging. They should do a better cleaning and better job.
10.0 Excellent28 Mar 2021
Pros: Easy pick up at the Chico, Ca. Avis on Forest and 20th. Nice people running the place. Didn't push unneeded insurance on me. Easy and pleasant transaction!Cons: Everything was fine
6.0 Good5 Jan 2020
Pros: Easy pic up drop off.. Decent price.Cons: Didn't have full tank of gas. Almost 1/8 gal. shy. No one picks up the phone. They disconnect you and transfer you and hang up on you.. Liars, Liars, Liars. I have pis to prove and names and number, but honestly.... they don't care. Just go with a different company, because Avis sucks. Thank you for reading.

CleanlinessPros: Auto was very dirty. Windows and side mirrors appeared to have been in line of sprinklers and had spots on each,Cons: Not a particularly comfortable car for long distance. Representative was not in office when we arrived in Chico.

6.8 Good21 Dec 2016
Cons: I asked for an airport drop off in Sacramento but was given a location in town far from the airport and had to get rerouted with significant loss of time.
9.2 Excellent4 Oct 2016
Pros: Excellent, quick service at check out and check in.Cons: Everything was great.
2.4 Mediocre25 Sep 2016
Cons: There were no actual vehicles available, even though the Kayak site confirmed the booking. The rental place canceled the booking and kayak still charged me the insurance. Don't book through Kayak.
5.6 Okay26 Jul 2016
Call ahead for same day reservations!Pros: Once we got a vehicle, it was fine!Cons: If you reserve online, there is no guarantee the particular location has any cars for you. YOU MUST CALL AHEAD! The online reservation systems make no attempt to check car inventories. They assume you are booking at least a day or two in advance, and that the location can get a car for you by then.
8.4 Excellent19 Apr 2016
Pros: Very nice customer service.Cons: Car was not very clean and some of the things did not work and it had a funny smell.

2.4 Mediocre23 Aug 2019
Cons: The credit card that I used to book was recently stolen. Hertz wouldn’t allow me to charge the $200 security payment on a different card and made me cancel this car… and make a new reservation with them which was double the price! There was a total lack of respect for the situation.
2.0 Mediocre7 Jul 2018
charging my credit card for a car i didnt rentCons: made a reservation for the fourth when I got the confirmation it said the 5th so I called them right away within 5 min . they didn't have a car for me so I cancelled she told me I would not be charged then I received a email they charged me 33.13 for something I never rented and was there fault. I am very upset and would not recommend do business with this company
10.0 Excellent3 Jul 2018
Quick and EasyPros: I called Hertz at 5:40 because I was running late. . I had to be there 5 minutes before closing. Chelsea was nice enough to have started the paperwork so the whole checkout took 5 minutes. Awesome!

No car availablePros: NothingCons: No car. No explanation.
2.0 Mediocre13 Mar 2018
Last Minute Cancellation of My ReservationCons: I received a phone call 2 hours before I was to pick up my rental car cancelling my reservation because she was out sick and the reservation system "is run by corporate and does not know what our availability is". I was forced to rent a car with another company at twice the price because of the last minute reservation. I will never use Hertz or Kayak again.
4.8 Okay4 Mar 2018
Dirty, RudePros: The second employee I worked with was courteous & helped me change my drop off locationCons: The first employee was rude, wouldn’t believe that I already made a deposit (I had to call orbitz & have them tell her I was telling the truth). She tried to make a new reservation where I’d have lost my deposit but I caught her and told her no. She was very unprofessional and argumentative. The car wasn’t cleaned out from the previous driver... some nasty stuff including a slimy latex glove still in the back
2.0 Mediocre17 Jan 2018
DisappointedCons: They could’ve called me a day earlier to tell me that I wasn’t able to get the rental for that weekend instead she waited until the morning of that day to let me know that I’m not able to get it. I panicked for a sec because my group was already all set and ready for the trip that weekend. I called Enterprise in Chico instead and they’re the MVP! Worked everything out and I was able to get a rental last minute.

Customer ServicePros: Ashley at the Oroville Location was wonderful. When I called with a "my gas cap is missing" she was quick to let me know this year Ford does not have a Cap. We laugh and she said have a safe trip. Thanks for a great experience Ashley. Stacy M. Paradise, CA

Great little car that got good gas mileage.Pros: Zippy little Ford Fiesta that was spotless inside and out and was fun to drive, with great gas mileage to boot!
2.0 Mediocre14 Oct 2017
Cons: when I arrived at the pick up location nobody was in the office. when she did finally arrive I was told no cars were available. as this was a pre-paid reservation and I had not been notified I was surprised. the woman working the counter was extremely rude. thankfully enterprise was able to fill my needs, and with no rude, disrespectful employees. next time I will use enterprise for sure.
