I liked that I could do everything on my phone, and that the drop off point was at my hotel. I did not like that the drop off point had limited hours with no drop box. I returned when they reopened but it took me a while to find the attendant.Reviewed 31 May 2024

The customer service agent was rude and rushed so much, calling the next person to the counter when I was paying and signing in the POS system. He also provided the wrong car information, taking me an extra half to find the car and get back into the line to fix it.Reviewed 13 May 2024

There was no car when I got there, and she didn’t know when they’d have one. And she wasn’t able to cancel my reservation for me.Reviewed 27 Mar 2024

Friendly and polite staff for the car pick-up and drop-off. The experience at the counter could have gone better. There was a mismatch between my priceline voucher (obtained through a kayak search) and what the person at the desk had in the computer. This resulted in several iterations of being proposed higher rental prices and being told I had to pay tax (although the voucher had tax payed on it). No car was available in the category I chose, so I was offered an "upgrade" at an additional cost. This is the first time this happens, as most o the time companies offer it for free, as it's not the client's fault for the company running out of reserved cars in a category. I ended up choosing a lower class car, luckily for free (the only thing that was for free in the negotiations at the cash desk). This is an unacceptable experience at the counter, as clearly something went wrong (or did not work at all) with the data transfer between the online platform and the rental company.Reviewed 24 Oct 2022

I actually did not rent this car. I canceled the reservation with Hertz a few weeks ago. Kayak was never updated apparently. I actually contacted both kayak and hertz in the cancellation process, because despite canceling weeks in advance, I was charged $50 by hertz for the reservation. Their policy was confusing, and I was surprised and disappointed to be charged. I have no complaints with kayak, but was dissatisfied with this hertz experience.Reviewed 16 Oct 2022

I had to add liability to the rental since Priceline/kayak didn’t offer it. On balance hertz was fine but kayak didn’t save me a lot. Bait and switch.Reviewed 28 Dec 2021

Worst experience ive ever had at a car rental company. 1st car they gave me had a suspension problem and I had to bring it back. When I returned it and got another, someone put gum on the seat and I therefore sat in gum for the next 5 hrs of my drive.Reviewed 18 Dec 2021

This location tried to add a $20 'valet fee' when I picked up the car, despite my already having paid in full and no mention of any additional fees at the time of booking.Reviewed 13 Dec 2021
