2.0 Mediocre2020 Dec 01
Cons: I cancelled 3 days prior and was still billed a 50$ fee Enterprise does not do this, this is why I will stick with them, Hertz is a rip off
2.0 Mediocre2020 Nov 16
Cons: I had to cancel because of a storm And they kept 50.00
4.0 Okay2020 Nov 14
Pros: The manager was very rude and did not have a mask onCons: The manager was so rude we ended up leaving and going to Alamo and had a great experience I will never recommend anyone to Hertz again, very poor service
9.6 Excellent2020 Nov 05
Pros: Pick up was easy. Rep was kinda of nosy regarding where I was going, etc.
2.8 Mediocre2020 Oct 25
Pros: Nothing. Long checking, smoked filled car. No one to help you. Difficult returnCons: Everything!
6.4 Good2020 Oct 03
Cons: You should update site so that the person who is making the booking is the same on the credit card and prevent the reservation from going through. I made the reservation in my name using my wife's credit card because I don't have one and I was told we couldn't use that reservation. We rented a car but I had to do it under my name on my debit/credit card. The car itself was not good. It was GMC Terrain which I believe is a mid-size SUV and not a standard and I do believe I rented a standard SUV. The brakes grabbed a lot and didn't seem to have a good exceleration.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Sep 07
Pros: The Hertz inside the airport was helpful and was able to get us a rental. The location that I booked was not in the airport, which was my mistake, but the location was not even open at our arrival time making it impossible to pick up the car. I put our pick up time on the reservation and it should have notified me that this location was not open at that time. I double paid for car reservations.Cons: Not letting me book a rental at a location that was closed at our arrival time.
6.0 Good2020 Aug 05
Pros: Drop off was very efficientCons: The car we ordered was not available. We were given a car with significantly worse gas mileage and a strong marijuana odor that persisted for the entire trip. We were questioned by police at one point for a significant amount of time being accused of driving and smoking because of the odor.
10.0 Excellent2020 Mar 20
Pros: Extremely cute ours and helpful, young lady was efficient and respectful.
8.8 Excellent2019 Oct 01
Pros: Staff was helpful. Process was easy.Cons: There was dog hair all over the back seat. Wish it had been vacuumed before.

10.0 Excellent2020 Oct 29
Pros: staff was friendly and helpful, car was excellent. had no problems. overall a great experience, and i'll definitely use enterprise the next time i need a rental car!
10.0 Excellent2020 Oct 27
Pros: The staff was friendly and made the whole transaction smooth as silk. As a matter of fact, due to an issue with the plates being expired on my original vehicle, I was able to get an upgrade at no additional cost, which competitors don't always offer. Checking in literally took me about minutes.Cons: I rarely have an issue with Enterprise, which is why I have only strayed once :-) I would never rent from anywhere else.
2.0 Mediocre2020 Oct 05
Cons: I had flight delays, which were beyond my control which resulted in my rental was given to someone else.
4.0 Okay2020 Sep 26
Pros: Drop off was fine. They said our reservations were at the other location not the airport. When I booked it said Knoxville airport. So they gave us a smaller vehicle and charged 70 dollars more. They told me I booked at wrong location. Very upset. Would like a refund if the difference we were charged versus what i booked.Cons: It would of been nice to get the car and price we booked for. Will not book with enterprise again
10.0 Excellent2020 Jul 15
Pros: Staff was super friendly and helpful. Drop off and pick up was easy and quick. Thank you guys!!
10.0 Excellent2020 May 12
Pros: Super easy pick-up and drop off.
6.0 Good2020 Apr 03
Pros: The pick-up was somewhat easy with enterprise. The truck was very clean and drove really well/Cons: The drop-off was a terrible experience. No one was available and I was charged double. This happened on both ends of my round-trip. Be aware if you use enterprise, alamo or national, which are all one company. If you drop off and no one is there, double-check your credit card. I'm not sure if it is company policy to charge for an extra day and hope the renter doesn't notice the extra charge, but it's starting to seem that way after back-to-back occurrences.
10.0 Excellent2018 Jul 15
Pros: Car was ready, got a free upgrade from the smaller car I had originally reserved.Cons: Nothing!
8.0 Excellent2018 Mar 28
Pros: Staff was very friendly and knew their jobCons: Gas light was on when I got into the car, so I couldn’t go anywhere til I gassed up. And then I couldn’t get a receipt when I dropped the car off since it was a one way rental. They told me I had to contact the office I picked the car up from to get my Receipt. I don’t understand why it would be so complicated from a company like Enterprise.
2.0 Mediocre2017 Dec 28
They allowed me to reserve a car when there was no inventory.Cons: We were left without a vehicle.

8.0 Excellent2018 Dec 30
Tahoe rentalPros: The car was great. Everyone was easy to work with.Cons: Car had dog hair everywhere inside of it from driver before I’m assuming. It wasn’t a huge crazy amount but was enough to make me nervous because I didn’t want to get fined for it.
2.0 Mediocre2018 Dec 05
They did not provide me with a carPros: NothingCons: The agent told me that my debit card doesn’t have (something) I don’t know what he wanted! He then asked for my social security and I never give that out. So he asked for a diff method of payment and I didn’t have that! So he was not able to give me the car!
10.0 Excellent2018 Sep 25
Easy returnPros: No issues at all to return the car!
8.8 Excellent2018 Jan 02
Close call!Pros: Friendly staff, quick service, clean car in good conditionCons: Wasn't notified that the location was closing early because it was New Years Eve. I arrived just as they were closing. Another 5 minutes and I would not have gotten a car!
10.0 Excellent2017 Dec 21
Pros: Friendly staff at both ends of rental.
6.0 Good2017 Oct 29
Pick up not near airportPros: Clean, helpful representativesCons: I arrived at Knoxsville airport and the pickup location was 20 mins away, which wasn't clear at time of booking. Luckily there was a car available at the airport, but I had to spend more money to rent it! Argh. There should have been a warning that the rental pickup was so far away.
10.0 Excellent2017 Aug 24
Everything was perfect! Everyone was very helpful!Pros: Everything!Cons: Nothing!
8.4 Excellent2017 Mar 30
Good experiencePros: They just gave me the same Nissan Versa I brought to them as a one way rental. It was comfortable for me.Cons: As long as there in no wind Versa drives fine, but wind easily blows it off.
9.6 Excellent2016 Oct 20
Pros: Good gas mileage and good pep for a 4 cylinder engine.

Amazing deal!Pros: Excellent value for a luxury SUV! Third summer in a row to rent a luxury SUV from this location and we couldn't be happier!
6.8 Good2017 Jul 24
Great customer service!Pros: The people at AvisCons: The car was loud and not very comfortable
2.0 Mediocre2016 Jun 18
Never againPros: NothingCons: I reserved a mini van almost two months in advance. I show up at my scheduled pickup time after driving over an hour to get there. The person working the desk tells me they didn't have any mini vans available and they "upgraded" me to a large passenger van. I told him that wasn't acceptable. He told me that's all he had. I told him a phone call would have been nice. He just looked at me like he had no idea what I was talking about. So glad I called early. It was a great way to start our vacation........never again.
9.2 Excellent2016 May 04
ValuePros: We put 3000 miles touring the Southern Unites States. I think we filled up with 20.00 dollars each time it cost us very little.Cons: When we picked the car up the person did not explain how to drive the car s features. Where's the gas the trunk lock the lights etc. but the worst was the tolls we didn't know what to do on toll roads that bill the plate. We were franticly calling phone numbers for Avis.
