Cons: Nothing checkout was really quick
9.2 Excellent14 Jul 2020
Pros: Staff at counter and lot very helpful and courteous. I like Borrowing a friends car.Cons: Little pricy....but I knew the price when I rented. I had a bereavement type situation and did not have a chance to shop. Honestly.....I just needed a ride to Ravenna and back. Uber would have been a better option.
10.0 Excellent13 Jun 2020
Pros: Very friendly staff. Easy to navigate car rental area
4.4 Okay28 May 2020
Pros: The lady at the National counter was very nice and helpful.Cons: When I arrived at the rental car center, the Alamo counter was empty. Apparently, I needed to get in line at the National counter, but there wasn't a sign at the Alamo counter to tell me this. Then when we went outside to pick a vehicle, I had to get a lower-tier vehicle than I paid for because this was all that was available. Finally, when I arrived home, the SUV had dog hair in the back seats.

7.6 Good6 Jan 2020
Cons: Very minor detail, but the inside of the windshield had some residue from cleaning that created a bad glare at night that made it difficult to see. It looked like it was cleaned with windex or something but not fully wiped away.

Pros: Great staff. Clean car.Cons: Car pick up reservation was not at airport. Had to change reservation when I got there and was a higher price.
10.0 Excellent17 Nov 2020
Pros: The staff at pick up was great and very efficient.Cons: The drop off in Erie could have been better. The airport was closed and there was no signage of where to drop the car or the key. We were thankful the airport police officer helped us out.
2.0 Mediocre20 Oct 2020
Cons: They have to improve the cleaning, they are not disinfecting the cars I found a glass with pee on the door and a used mask in the back of the car
2.0 Mediocre22 Sep 2020
Pros: Didn't end up renting the car because the reservation made note that there was shuttle service to the rental car facility from the Cleveland airport. I was instead booked for a location 24 minutes in the opposite direction of where I needed to be going. I ended up booking directly with Enterprise at the airport.Cons: Accurately describe the location of the car rental facilities when making the reservation.

8.8 Excellent13 Sep 2020
Pros: When I went to pick up my reserved rental it wasn't there cause others were late returning theirs... so they did everything they could as quickly as possible to get me a vehicle of the size I needed... and very friendly staff!!!!!Cons: The 800 number I had said that I couldn't drop off the vehicle a day early cause it was closed. So the next day when I went to drop it off the person there said I could have and showed me the drop box... because of this I had no one to take me back home that day which was an hour drive away and had to start walking in the rain back home... thankfully a nice person gave me a ride even though I was soaking wet from walking
8.8 Excellent21 Aug 2020
Pros: Staff was very friendly and helpful.Cons: They did not have the SUV I reserved so I took a car instead. The vehicle was clean, however, there was the obvious small of marijuana present.
8.0 Excellent5 Aug 2020
Pros: Fast. However the luxury SUV they gave me needed oil and filter change according to the message on the dashboard.Cons: SUV having had a full maintenance complete before rental.
2.0 Mediocre1 Jul 2020
Pros: NothingCons: Knowing the exact price of my rental which was almost twice the amount when I got there.

2.0 Mediocre1 Jul 2020
Pros: Picking up from Cleveland Airport was confusingCons: If my car did not come with a complimentary ant colony. Ants were all over me and my things, distracting me while driving.
6.4 Good29 Jun 2020
Cons: Too much $$$
4.4 Okay31 May 2020
Pros: Drop-off easyCons: Would not allow to leave lot without purchasing insurance. Nearly doubling the price from what was booked/reserved.
10.0 Excellent2 Feb 2020
Pros: Staff were friendly and pick up and drop off were easier than ever before. The car was clean and in a great condition and the rental was quite reasonably priced.
4.4 Okay31 Jan 2020
Cons: Kayak is terrible and the price is misleading. I owed additional fees at the airport. I could have rented for cheaper without using kayak. Instead i got stuck with the „managers choice“ which ended up being a car that was scratched to hell. It was easily the worst car I’ve ever rented and I always pick the cheapest option so it’s not like the competition is tough. Never again
9.2 Excellent27 Jan 2020
Pros: Pickup and drop-off was very easy.Cons: The only blip we had was trying to figure out how to open the trunk of the car. I didn’t see anyone near the car to ask. As it was raining, we threw suitcases in the back seat and watched a You Tube video to learn how to open it. Knowing that it did not work like any other normal car, some comments may have been helpful.
2.4 Mediocre2 Jan 2020
Pros: I liked that it was a new car with space.Cons: They should have the cars ready. The car was dirty inside and smelling like cigarettes. I booked the car weeks before, and was expecting a clean and odorless car for the price I payed.
5.2 Okay18 Nov 2019
Cons: Waited an hour when picking up car. UNACCEPTABLE
6.0 Good27 Oct 2019
Cons: I parked the car on the return Lane and the agent started yelling at me that I needed to back it up. That is not acceptable. If there is an exact place they should have a sign or person directing traffic. Luckily there are multiple places to rent from at that airport

Pros: The vehicle was clean which was important to me.Cons: When I arrived to dollar rental, they counter was closed. My flight had been delayed due to deicing It took over an hour for the Hertz staff to "reduce" my paperwork dude to my rental being prepaid
8.8 Excellent17 Oct 2020
Pros: The staff at both pick up and drop off were very helpful.Cons: The price was more money than priceline had quoted. On priceline I clicked the option to add my spouse for no charge however when I went to pick up the rental I would have been charged $13 a day on top of the additional expenses. The staff at pick-up was one person, she did a great job but there was quite a backlog. More support for her would have helped the process go quicker.
10.0 Excellent18 Feb 2020
Pros: Pickup and drop off were very easy.Cons: I cannot provide one instance regarding what could have been better. Everything was great!
10.0 Excellent16 Dec 2019
Pros: First vehicle had a major issue, they got us back on the road quick and hassle free.
2.0 Mediocre9 Dec 2019
Cons: No explanation on $200 deposit by credit card in advance - no help when my temporary card ( replaces by bank due to fraud) was not accepted by their software. Will never use dollar again Will not use advance car purchase again
8.0 Excellent30 Nov 2019
Pros: The check in staff was very good as was the return staff.Cons: it was fgine.
2.0 Mediocre10 Jun 2019
Pros: i was going to be charged over double what i was quoted. i know deposits are necessary, but that was exorbitant and also should have been stated when i made the reservation. i had to find other means of transportation as i hadn’t planned for this.Cons: be up front about ALL costs (including deposits) DURING BOOKING
2.0 Mediocre4 Sep 2018
No rental cars and no signPros: I arrived at the Ckeveland Airport Rental Car Center to dung the Dollar counter dark and quiet. There was no sign saying they had closed and we’re out of cars. That information was relayed to me by the much more helpful Budget agent next door. I called Dolat’s 1-800 number and was told it was my fault because I didn’t notify Dollar that my flight was late. How could I notify them when I was in the air? The Dolkar agent told me my best option was to return the next morning to rent a car.Cons: Poor customer service and the fact that I never got a car.
5.2 Okay31 Jul 2018
Normal Rental, Very ExpensivePros: Rental was as expected, backseat and windshield on the inside were filthyCons: Very expensive rental charges, websites advised of high demand for vehicles, but when I picked my car up the lot was full of cars, hmmmm?
7.2 Good24 Jul 2018
OrganizationPros: Rental was great.Cons: When i arrived they werent sure if they had what i needed and had to check which took too long. There was only one person at the desk and a line of 8 people. Dropping off, not sure where to go because the lot was full and nobody came out, they just stared at me.

Pros: No, I didn’t get the car at Beachwood, I had to go to Bedford. I got there had to wait in line for a long time while picking up and dropping off.Cons: The car was not clean, it smelled like smoke and the tank was not full.

4.4 Okay29 Nov 2019
Cons: Smaller sized car than expected, and incorrect overcharge on invoice even though car was paid in full at time if booking, they decided to add some miscellaneous charge that they could not later explain.
9.2 Excellent29 Oct 2019
Pros: Staff were great & made it smooth & easyCons: Somehow I reserved the car for suburban Cleveland not at the airport. The address said Cleveland so I didn't catch the mistake. Since the address was actually in Beachwood, OH then it should have said that. I called customer service & it all worked out but was a bit of a hassle.
7.6 Good14 Oct 2019
Pros: Price was goodCons: The location was too far away from teh airport
5.6 Okay13 Oct 2019
Pros: That location needs more staff; the one person working the desk always seemed very tense, and didn't communicate very well ( different people on pickup and drop off). They were so overwhelmed that the fuel level was just written down as full without checking, I went out to get in and saw that it was less than half; the guy who accompanied me out agreed that it was, but then went I came back a week later with the fuel at precisely the same level as when I received it, the guy there seemed to think it was supposed to be full. So glad I took a picture to be able to correct him. (What if I had allowed him to just send me an email later and not check the car when I was there as he suggested?) Also didn't appreciate my cc number being written out on paper, along with the 3 number code and not even explaining the need for that. Maybe this location could get in the late 20th century and use the tech available to not have to do that? Honestly, this was just one grumpy and tense place; I'll not use this location ever again.Cons: Hertz needs to have more staff and needs to stress the communication skills that make customer service the linchpin of rental services and invest in technology to keep cc numbers safer.

We fabreezed that car every time we entered and exited it. Horrible

Pros: Fast and painless
8.0 Excellent6 Oct 2019
Cons: Drop off is very confusing. No one comes to car. You have to find an employee. Car exterior was muddy on the bottom. Interior had napkins and small garbage in the center console.
3.2 Mediocre23 Sep 2019
Pros: Pick up was awful. The location where we reserved simply didn't have any cars and the employees did not care AT ALL and made NO attempt to rectify the situation. No manager on site nor did the employees even provide me with a customer service phone number.Cons: I did call the national number and they told me there was a car available at the airport location. I then requested to be transferred to customer service and they confirmed this, but I had to insist that they reimburse me for an Uber to the airport ($45)--it was not offered to me.
3.6 Mediocre19 Sep 2019
Pros: Long line to check out the car. No cars ready I the parking lot. Long line at the rental exit. It took longer to get my rental car then it took to fly from St Louis to Cleveland. I rented from Avis ( only because Hertz had no availability) expecting good service. It was horrible.Cons: See above. Everything could have been better.
4.8 Okay17 Dec 2018
Counter help was good, car preparation fair to poor.Pros: Low cost on one way rental. Friendly counter people.Cons: Car not clean. Smoke permeated the interior. Window smeared. Gas 7/8 full and I did not notice until after leaving. Left quarter panel dented and scraped. Long shuttle ride to car center.
9.6 Excellent26 Nov 2018
Cons: Hard to tell where to park for dropoff - need more/better signs.
2.4 Mediocre20 Oct 2018
Slow and dirtyCons: It took 35 minutes from the time I got in line to pick up my car (with only two people in front of me) to the time I was able to drive away. 25 minutes of that time was spent after I had paid waiting for the car to be ready. There were dozens of cars in my category available, but for some reason, they decided to only let me take a car that still had to be washed, so I stood outside in the cold waiting for far too long. When the car arrived, there were stains on the driver's seat and a bad smell inside. I was already late for my meeting, so I had to take the car. Won't be using Avis again.
4.4 Okay21 Jun 2018
Bald tiresCons: At the Avis in Cleveland I was given a Ford Explorer with tires that were so bald they were illegal, I have pictures of the depth of the tread. It took me another hour to get a car which was scratched and dirty.
4.0 Okay2 Apr 2018
Only complaint: the carPros: Fast pickup, the price.Cons: Full sized car ("Nissan Altima or equivalent") ended up being a crappy Jeep Compass.
5.2 Okay23 Oct 2017
Pros: Nice car for the money, but...Cons: We were sold on a "pre-paid" tank of gas, only to get on the freeway and find that the tank was dead empty. The time it took to correct this almost made us miss our return flight AND it wasn't really corrected; Avis ended up with about a half tank of free gas but ended up charging US for gas.

10.0 Excellent19 Aug 2018
Super Fast CheckoutPros: I pulled into the return area, and was completely checked out in about a minute. The rental agent briefly walked around the car, checked the gas guage, and I was done. FAST!!Cons: The car rental return is difficult to find at the airport. It's off-site, and I didn't see any signs for it as I approached the airport. You have to go through the "Departures" area, and then follow signs to an off-site lot that's about another 5-10 minute drive. Be sure you consider this extra time before your departure!
8.8 Excellent22 Feb 2017
Cons: I was told drop off was late, but still during business hours. The lights were on at the CLE airport drop off area, and the inside desk was staffed, but no one came out to close out my rental. There was no sign posted advising that this was after hours. After waiting around I finally just dropped the keys in the nightbox. Intuitive, but some posted guidance would have been appreciated.

What lies beyond the downtown district, however, is truly magical: Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio’s Amish countryside, and the Cedar Point Amusement Park all lie within a short drive of Cleveland, making renting a car during your stay a fantastic idea. If you’re a cheese lover, make sure you also make the drive out to Heini’s Cheese Chalet in Millersburg and Broad Run Cheese & Swiss Heritage Winery in Sugarcreek, both located a little over an hour south of the downtown district.

  • Some major highways in the state of Ohio operate as tollways, so it is best to familiarize yourself with which ones you drive on and the specific conditions of your hire agreement. The I-90, I-80, and I-76 Highways come together to make the Ohio Turnpike, a major tollway that connects Cleveland with Toledo to the west and Pittsburgh to the east.
  • Northeast Ohio is renowned for its snowfall, experiencing the heaviest months of downfall between December and March.
