2.0 Mediocre13 Mar 2021
Pros: the car was fine. no one was at the drop off location when I returned the car. now budget keeps calling saying i never returned the car. I did though. this is stupid.Cons: customer service: i returned the car and now budget wont stop calling saying I never returned it. !! rediculous.

Pros: very good.
8.0 Excellent28 Oct 2019
Pros: Quick, easy and as simple as it should be.Cons: I spoke with the representative at STS and confirmed that there wasn’t a fee to drop the car in San Fran at a different location. I picked the car up and noon and told him we were escaping the fires and dropping the car off today. We go to San Fran a couple of hours later. The office had closed at 1pm and the valet at the hotel told me there was a $25-$35 charge?

Pros: The woman who helped me was very nice.

Easy to find drop off at nightPros: I liked that it was easy to find, night drop was available.Cons: Being late night drop off, would’ve made more sense to me a little better instructions about what papers are being dropped off. Also, a sensor had gone off about a brake light bulb that went out en route to my destination. No one was available to inform about this, so a space on the paper that gets turned in would be a good idea. I improvised and wrote it on the side

Great local servicePros: Easy pickup and drop off. So much more efficient than at the airport. Friendly staff. Car was in excellent shape.Cons: Nothing.
2.0 Mediocre15 Sep 2017
Very confusedCons: We rented the car - went to pick it up and he said he didn't have a reservation under my name. Showed him the reservation receipt email - he then said I don't have a car available. Then something came up where he thought he had one - with a cracked windshield. He said he'd give us a discount. Tried to rent that one out but there was a hold on it. He said ok, I can get another car let me have your card. I had my debit card. Said it wouldn't pass the credit check. He said my credit must be bad. !!! My husband tried his - same thing. We don't have credit cards. We have rented numerous times with our debit cards, never with an issue. I have now been charged for the insurance. This car rental was for a very important occasion. Extremely upset and very confused.

Horrible customer service in Santa RosaPros: I was surprised how nice the Ford Focus wasCons: Customer service representative at pick up in Santa Rosa could have cared less. I asked for a drop off in on place and he put another on the contract without telling me. It was very inconvenient. I called to complain and there was nothing they could do and they offered no help or restitution

Fill up the gas tank before heading to the airport.Cons: Not letting the customer know that there is not a gas station near the airport. So I was charged $50 for a half tank of gas.
7.2 Good14 May 2018
Renting a Smart Car is an adventure in itselfPros: The car was fuel efficient and compact which helped a TON in the greater Bay Area for travels.Cons: The older model rented to me (based on the pricepoint but not entirely clear from the internet description) is an automatic that drives like a manual shift. Very specific feature of the Smart Car and was a little annoying when trying to pull a hill-side along the 101. Also, with high winds on the Richmond Bridge, the car felt VERY UNSAFE. The wind gusts were about 40-50mph and the car was swaying and wobbling in the lane. Yes, I knew to drive at a reduced speed but the bridge is 9miles long and it was a scary wind shaking 9mile drive. Something I didn't factor in.
10.0 Excellent17 Mar 2018
Easy to work withPros: The pickup and drop-off went very smoothly. The company was easy to work with and the car was very clean. This was my first time driving a smart car. It is more roomy and comfortable than I would have guessed. It doesn't have a lot of power, but it makes up for that in gas mileage. There were no issues with the car itself - it was in great shape. No complaints at all. I would definitely rent with Sixt again.

Cons: Kayak let me book a Hertz rental at Santa Rosa airport which does not have a hertz location. It’s been closed for a few months. I had to go to the Santa Rosa Avenue location instead. This caused a hiccup in my entire travel plans.

4.4 Okay28 May 2020
Pros: The staff was great. They arranged our after hours pickup at the Elmira NY airport at 10pm last night, 5 hours after the Hertz counter closed.Cons: We were horrified to discover fa partly full McDonalds drink cup and some paper napkins in the back seat. Normally, we wouldn't much mind. But these are covid times. We were horrified that the car had not been cleaned carefully, and obviously could not claim to have been disinfected. We drove home last night worried all the way about being in that car. Unclean car is really unacceptable in these times.
2.0 Mediocre27 Sep 2019
Cons: I didn't get the rental because they said they didn't know I had a reservation and had nothing available then tried to pawn a truck off on me for double the amount I was originally paying. Not happy!
2.0 Mediocre5 Aug 2019
Pros: The staff at the Santa Rosa office was not overly friendly or helpful. The staff at the office in Bakersfield was nice.Cons: The 2019 Buick Encore that we rented broke down as we were traveling in the desert. Due to the broken down vehicle, our vacation plans were interrupted. We were not compensated in any way by Hertz for the inconvenience because we rented through a 3rd party and paid up front. Beware!!

Pros: Staff at pick up was a bit rude.

Pros: They didn’t have a car for usCons: The kayak or Priceline interface changed the pickup location without my consent, and Enterprise didn’t have a car for us at the airport. I had to rent another car from a different company at more than double the cost. I called Priceline to see if they could offset the extra costs and they refused. I will not book a car through kayak or Priceline again.

Fortunately someone finally informed us the drop box was outside. The attendant from pickup may have told us but it would be helpful to have a sign at the desk.
2.0 Mediocre12 Oct 2020
Pros: The guy I picked the car up from was friendly and helpful. I declined insurance and I appreciate that he did not push it.Cons: However, the car reeked of cigarettes after about 3 miles down the road, so I assume they cleaned the interior to eliminate the smell but not the air filter. That was kinda gross but not that big of a deal. The big deal was after I returned the car. I returned it an hour earlier than the deadline stated on the contract, but then got an email with an invoice stating I owed $20 for a late fee and I'm still trying to figure that one out. On top of that I was quoted $75 online, but then that jumped up to $99 inexplicably when I picked it up. I will update this to a better score if they fix the inaccurate bill but so far I am pretty disappointed.

Pros: The staff was friendly and understanding through all of our problems with the cars.Cons: first car we got smelled so bad we had to return it after a couple hours. The second car they tried to give us smelled the same. It was like they dumped a bottle of perfume in the carpet to cover up smoke smell. The only car they had that didn't smell bad was a mini van. Not what I reserved. Two weeks after returning the van the $200 hold on my credit card is still there. Not happy about the whole experience.
