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.

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.

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.

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.

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

2.0 Mediocre24 May 2021
Pros: The drop off went fine. When I told the agent that we turned the car into about our horrible experience picking up the car, he deducted $10 off of the remaining fees.Cons: The pick up was the worst we have ever experienced. From the time that we arrived at the Thrifty counter until we were given the car, it was almost an hour. While we did receive a free upgrade, the wait was totally unacceptable. They gave us a coupon for 15% off of our NEXT Thrifty rental which probably should have just applied to the current rental.

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

Pros: Not a thing, they changed my reservation and put up a hell of a fight to refund.Cons: They could have not changed my reservation and then refuse to give me a refund. They are a bait and switch sham of an operation. Directly to Avis.com saved money, got a better car and no hassle with extended hours. Dollar and kayak can pound sand!
10.0 Excellent1 Jun 2021
Cons: Easy and convenient
8.0 Excellent23 May 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly.Cons: Windows were dirty. Shopped online for a good deal and pre-paid on Expedia, but then I had to pay another 160+ for fees that were not mentioned on Expedia. Feel like I got ripped off. When shopping for a good value, it's unfair to be hit with extra unexpected fees.
4.0 Okay23 May 2021
Cons: I waited an hour for the car. It was the wrong car even though I paid extra for it. I had to switch to a different car due to the cigarette smell and low pressure in the tire. There were extra fees that I did not know about.
8.8 Excellent3 Nov 2020
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!

2.0 Mediocre9 Dec 2019

10.0 Excellent21 May 2021
Pros: When I first arrived at the rental counter at Cleveland/Hopkins airport, the clerk informed me my rental had been made at another Cleveland location miles away. When I asked if there was anything she could do to help me she imphaticaly said no. A supervisor happened to be there and came to my rescue. She was wonderful. The first clerk was not going to even try to help or ask the supervisor if anything could be done. To her, the mistake and inconvenience didn't matter. Once the supervisor helped things went well and quick. My return person was great!Cons: Perhaps train clerks in regards to customer service. They appear to have NO desire to help solve problems. Thank goodness for a competent supervisor!
10.0 Excellent19 May 2021

2.0 Mediocre10 May 2021
Pros: Car rental was set for 6:00-- I arrived to the lot at 6:02 as a function of traffic and work. No-one was there to be found as they had closed at 6:00 on the dot which is interesting since this was my pickup time (how can you close at 6 and also rent a car at 6?). Anyways, I called "customer no service" who refused to help me in any fashion. They would not find me a comparable truck anywhere nearby without significant fees. The best they could offer was to replace my $298 rental for a >$600 rental, which is in no way comparable. Needless to say, I ate the loss and rented a car with enterprise. I will never use Hertz or this location again and I'd advise you do the same.Cons: Everything
10.0 Excellent8 May 2021

6.0 Good6 Apr 2021
Pros: Staff at Cleveland Airport (Rocky) was very good.Cons: Price is incredibly expensive. Hertz lost a customer today because they are clearly "sticking it" to their customers. I did NOT like Kayak in this regard. I searched on "rental cars CLE" and assumed that all choices were at the Cleveland airport location, but this is not true. My rental was way over on the east side of Cleveland, and I had to resolve this at the counter.

2.0 Mediocre19 Feb 2021
Cons: I’m highly pissed off and want my money back. My car was for Friday morning at 8:00. I missed my flight out due to extreme pain due to my ankle fusion. I did however get another flight and was there on time Friday morning to get my car. I was told because I had missed my flight they canceled my car reservation. There was no reason that car should have been canceled until after I had missed the car pickup time

2.0 Mediocre16 Jun 2021
Pros: I was planning my bachelorette weekend. We planned for a 12 passenger van because of how many girls where going and we could all drive down together . I reserved the van 5 months in advance. I called 3 times prior to the trip (included two days before) to check to make sure the van was going to be ready to be picked up. Both kayak and cleveland Hopkins verified it would be there. We had a tight strict schedule to follow so we could be on the road by8:00am. I scheduled the pick up time early so it gave us an hour to get the van and pack, and be on time. When i get to the airport rental in Cleveland i had my confirmation code and everything i needed to pick up the van. The lady at the front desk seemed panic when i showed up. She radio back because she did not have a 12 passenger van for me to rent. After 10 min she confirmed it was there but needed to be cleaned. She said it would take about 15 min and it would be ready. My friend and i sat down and waited. About an hour went by. We went back up and asked the front desk worker (who seemed really annoyed by us) if the van was ready. She said yes it just needed air and it would be out soon. My friend and i went back to our waiting place. The front desk worker (who didn’t know we where sitting there ) yelled out to the back workers where the van was and they said it’s still being cleaned. The front desk worker noticed we where sitting there. About another hour goes by and we finally get the van. It was still a bit dirty but at that point i was just happy then van was even there and ready for us to leave since we now where 2 hours late from our scheduled pick up and time we should have been on the road.Cons: I wish i would have no been lied to. I understand how crazy work places are and how busy travel is since covid rules have been pretty much lifted. I just wish if it would have taken two hours to clean the van and get it ready i would not have been told 15 min. I could have went back home to get other thing get ready for my trip. Maybe better communication when calling to confirm bookings to make sure the cars are there. When i was told it was going to be there and ready multiple times on the phone.

4.0 Okay27 Feb 2021
Pros: They gave me a Chevy Traverse. It was in good condition and clean.Cons: Picking up the car took way to long! It took the guy at least 20 minutes to do the paperwork. He kept calling someone on a radio to see what was available. Then he told me that they were just finishing cleaning it and it would be brought up to the door. I kept going outside and checking. There were a number of cars setting in the lot that would have been fine for me to use. After about 25 minutes, I went back to the desk to find out where the car was. He called someone the radio and told them to bring the car up to the door. After about 15 more minutes, they finally brought the car over.
10.0 Excellent30 Aug 2020
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.

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.

Top tips for renting a car in Cleveland

  • Cleveland is a fantastic working class American city, steeped in history and with a gritty authentic atmosphere. 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.
  • Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is located 9 miles away from the center of town, and the drive will only take about 20 minutes. Explore the best available deals using KAYAK, with major hire companies such as Alamo, Enterprise, Avis, and Budget to choose from. The car hire facility at the airport is easily accessed via a free shuttle, which leaves regularly from the door outside Baggage Claim 7.
  • 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. During this period, it is particularly important to tune in to local weather reports and apply extra caution while driving on icy roads. The primary rule for snow driving is to provide additional space to the car in front of you, as braking distances increase due to icy roads.
