Car unavailable at first location
Pros: The staff at the Elm location was very friendly and went out of their way to help take care of us.
Cons: The car class that we originally reserved was unavailable when we arrived, so the more expensive cars were not made available to us for our reserved price. Rather, we were driven to another location 10-15 minutes away by an employee, where they also said they didn't have a car available. But after some work with the staff there, they were able to arrange for a car there to be given to us.

Feedback
Pros: Pick-up and drop off was quick and easy. The Hertz representative was pleasant and helpful.
Cons: While the car was clean, it still had a slight odor of cigarette smoke and had several set in stains on the interior that made the car look dirty and feel old.
5.6 Okay
25 Apr 2017
Cons: I was not happy with the car. I received the car dirty (inside and out), it had many dents and scratches, and the service was ok. I have never rented a car that looked like a used car before...all the rentals I have rented in the past were clean and not damaged. I will not be renting a car from Hertz on Elm St again.

No Major Problems!
Pros: I had no problems with my rental car and the process!
Cons: The actual office in Cincinnati is really small. There is a sign that says only two customers are allowed at a time. Granted, I picked up and dropped off right as they were closing, but both times there was a decent wait. They usually staff two guys, but I must have caught them when there was only one.

Cons: When they didn't have the size car I had reserved, they charged me an additional $11/day for the next size up. I've encountered this situation many times before and never been upcharged if the size car I reserved wasn't available. Not good.

Best value for money!
Pros: We keep going for trips now and then, mostly rely on rental cars. But this time, we got the best car for a very good deal. Got a GMC Acadia for 400+$ for 12 days! What else can I say about that :) Apart from the cost, service is also very, have requested the Enterprise for a good car as we are doing a very long trip, and promptly they have reserved GMC Acadia upon our request. They are really helpful, and friendly. We haven't got into any trouble during our journey, so cannot comment on how they would respond on that front. My overall experience is very good, and going for the same Enterprise next time also.

Cons: Well I was promised a week for $159 when I landed I called about to get to the specific location for my car. The gentleman stated that location closed at noon on Saturday. I asked how was I to get the car he said come back tomorrow. I thinking really stay overnight in an airport. Nothing online stated that location closed at noon but he would he happy to help at this location. Just take the shuttle. Then after explaining everything again and signing the nice lady Stephanie says they did they tell you we could not honor the price. I paid $409. Thanks KAYAK

Car was fine, manager tried to stick me with fines
Cons: Returned the vehicle and the manager tried to stick me with fines for damage that was clearly marked on paper before I accepted the vehicle. we had to call over the guy who rented me the car at pickup who resolved the issue who thankfully was more honest than that manager. Will not rent from this location again.

car smelled like cigarette smoke
Pros: Value for the money generally was good. Lenny the agent was very nice and apologetic for the smoke smell. They gave me 10% discount.
Cons: Cigarette smell. Jeep was the rental - little loud on acceleration. Tires were not great. Hydroplaned in water on highway. Got home safe.

Happy with overall package at the end
Pros: We loved the Ford Expedition we were given.
Cons: We didn't like that we had to wait 45 minutes to get our vehicle. We were suppose to get a full size car but ended up with a Ford Expedition which was awesome, but it cost us 45 minutes to get on the road.

People are nice but Corporate is the problem
Pros: Nice people
Cons: Cost $300+ more than what I was quoted through your website A utility bill was needed to pay with our bank card, which is all right, but we had NO IDEA, so we had to screw around in the office through emails and the such. Proper notification of needing these papers would of been nice

Pros: The convenience of the rental. Had a miscommunication with another reservation with another car rental company.
Cons: Well, upon arriving to pick up the rental, I had to caall the store in order to get the attention of the associate working at the time. There was another customer waiting for service, and the call wasn't made until five minutes after arriving to site. When dropping off rental, I called to notify the same associate that there was a chance that i may be a little late to drop off the rental (6:00)which is also the time Budget closes. I was then notified that I had to place keys in the dropbox and the drop off would not be processed until the following day, and there was a chance that a late fee would be added to bill for at least a half of a day. I returned the car AT the time it was supposed to be dropped off. Walked INTO the building, and was later told that the associate could not process the drop off. I explained to him that his door was still open, showing that your business was still open, and he then refused to process the drop off. He didnt lock the doors of the establishment until 7 minutes after closing time. I know this because I decided to take a picture while waiting for my lyft ride.

Pros: The ease of drop-off and pick-up in Cinci was great with an online booking. The agent there helped advise me on the right size car with good fuel efficiency for my long road trip. The car was just what I needed except for the overpowering fragrance from cleaning? Previous renter?
Cons: The AC broke an hour and a half into the trip. The St Louis airport was the only location that had a replacement on a Sunday. This location was understaffed, had long lines, lacked clarity among employees about protocol for exchanging cars. Our experience there put us back 3 hrs on our drive.

Top tips for hiring a car in Cincinnati

  • A city that sprawls along the Ohio River and connects to the apex of the Licking River, Cincinnati is best discovered with a hire car. Cincinnati buzzes with an eclectic rustic vibe and is home to many fantastic restaurants and art venues. Whether you plan to escape the city to the world renowned Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden or explore the diverse landscapes the Ohio River has to offer, a hire car will help you maximize your time in town.
  • Cincinnati International Airport, commonly referred to as Northern Kentucky International Airport, is located 13 miles south from the downtown district and takes approximately 20 minutes to drive. A shuttle bus takes you directly from the baggage claim area to the car hire facility, where you will find the counters of many major hire companies such as Hertz, Budget, Enterprise, and Avis.
  • The hills that bless Cincinnati with glorious views also mean that you will experience some unique driving conditions around town. When coming up to any considerable incline, remember to approach at a steady pace and with significant momentum. The mountainous terrain provides an ideal challenge for enthusiastic cyclists, so be cautious of your blind spots and always provide an adequate amount of space.
  • Cincinnati roads become congested between 7 am and 9 am as commuters make their way to work, as well as between 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm. It is advisable to avoid driving during these peak periods of the day and instead enjoy the beautiful riverfront or the long list of activities the city has to offer. Redirecting your driving route to avoid the Brent Spence Bridge, I-75, and I-71 will save you time, especially during the evening rush hour.
