8.0 Excellent2020 Oct 20
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful.Cons: We had paid for Sirrius radio but it was not available in our car. Enterprise was quick to credit us back the cost quickly upon having it reported to them.
10.0 Excellent2020 Oct 05
Pros: The agent who rented us the vehicle was outstandingCons: Nothing really. Got a tire pressure warning on way back to airport, but had nothing to do with Enterprise
9.2 Excellent2020 Aug 29
Cons: Pick up time was a little slow ... several callers who called AFTER I walked in office were handled while I waited instead of putting them on hold and taking care of me in proper order
5.6 Okay2020 Aug 03
Pros: Yes. Drop was easyCons: billing was all messed up.. could not reach pickup location prior to straiten out so wasted an hour at pick up trying to fix! Rental was on 9 days but I was being billed for 2 weeks.
10.0 Excellent2020 Jul 19
Pros: The staff at both the pick-up & drop-off points were very nice, courteous & professional.
3.6 Mediocre2020 Jun 18
Cons: Try Casey's auto rental instead
5.2 Okay2020 May 27
Pros: The pick-up staff was really friendly.Cons: I feel like we were set up to pay more for this rental from the start. I clearly marked we would only need it for one day, but by the time we got to the drop-off location, it was closed until the following Tuesday (2 extra days). I could not find any information on how to drop off the car to meet up deadline, and when I called Enterprise, they weren't open. Also, the pick up agent was trying to claim we caused hail damage, but I didn't drive through or have any hail during when I had the car. Thank god I didn't drop it off without someone there, because who knows what else they would've tried to pull on us. Now, I've been charged for 3 days & the damage to the car I didn't do. And I will likely never rent from this company again.
7.6 Good2020 May 25
Pros: Staff was nice. Put up was not organized, but car was clean and ready.Cons: Picked enterprise because of Riverwalk location. Day before pickup, I called to confirm, and found out car was at a location that was a $13 Uber from our hotel. Added at least another $26 to rental cost.
10.0 Excellent2020 Feb 01
Pros: Rented here multiple times in the last year, after leaving another rental company. I've been upgraded too for no extra cost a couple times, just due to the low availability of vehicles. A staff member acknowledges you almost immediately. Very little wait time. Had one management trainee personally clean a vehicle, when he didn't have to, and got me on may way. Front office staff have been absolutely professional each and every time, and enjoy a good conversation. Vehicles have thus far been top notch.Cons: Maybe it's time Enterprise provide this store with a bigger parking lot, more vehicles, but with the exact same staff members.
10.0 Excellent2019 Jul 23
Pros: I had a wonderful experience! I have no clue what the negative remarks from others are about but the staff I dealt with was efficient, kind and professional.Cons: All was good!

Cons: Car was not clean
5.2 Okay2019 Jun 26
Pros: Staff was good, truck was notCons: Truck was well used and could have been cleaner inside. Inside had an odor to it. Alamo must have acquired this truck used and put it into service. I had a new Ford four door pickup rented from Hertz the week before and it was great. I thought I was getting a better deal with Alamo on the trip.
9.6 Excellent2019 Jun 24
Pros: Pick-up and drop-off were both fast, efficient, and friendly.Cons: The directions at the airport for rental car return aren't very clear. There should be a sign for a right turn, just near the rental car parking area. Since there isn't, I drove straight on until I realized I must be in the wrong place.
9.2 Excellent2019 Jun 15
Cons: Great car, great service. To expensive
10.0 Excellent2019 Jun 11
Pros: Great experience
10.0 Excellent2018 Oct 09
Pros: Easy check-in and checkout! Car was clean and gas tank full. Offered an upgrade on arrival, and that was perfect for planned 15 day rental! Return of car at Spokane airport was exceptional with everything completed in a few minutes by the attendant in the lot at 6:00AM in the morning. No need to go inside and stand in line waiting at a counter!

9.2 Excellent2020 Aug 23
Pros: Short line even without standing in Gold line. Low mileage modern car as upgrade when compact sedan not available. Simple return process too.Cons: Chevy Malibu upgrade when compact sedan not available was acceptable (no other sedans available). Just not my preferred brand/model.
10.0 Excellent2020 Aug 07
Pros: The staff was friendly and the pick up was quick and easy. When we got to the car we found they gave us an upgrade for no extra cost. Must have been what they had available at the time.Cons: Everything went smoothly. The price was higher than we would have preferred, but that was because we picked up in Rapid City and dropped off in Sioux Falls. The price was lower through Kayak than directly with Hertz. It couldn't have been easier though at both ends.
9.6 Excellent2020 Aug 02
Pros: Great car great staffCons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent2020 Jul 26
Pros: Kale, the RAP airport, was awesome!
10.0 Excellent2019 Nov 20
Cons: The signage in the airport parking instructing renters where to drop off rental vehicles could be better placed. It was difficult to know what to do as Rapid City is a smaller airport and rental agencies do not have staff in the lots to direct customers returning vehicles. Providing drop off instructions at pick-up time might be helpful.
10.0 Excellent2019 Oct 02
Pros: Drop off was very easy and quick. The gas refill price was excellent.
9.2 Excellent2019 Sep 24
Pros: Staff very efficient and friendly.Cons: Hertz did everything great. Engine noise and especially tire noise on Toyota Rav-4 was annoying.
10.0 Excellent2019 Sep 17

2.0 Mediocre2020 Jul 31
Cons: The car I booked on line didn’t exist. Showed up at the counter. No one was there called the number. Lady identifies herself as the owner tells me she doesn’t even own a car like that in her business.
8.4 Excellent2019 Sep 05
Pros: Every aspect of pickup and drop-off was very easy and smooth.Cons: I was supposed to get a Chevrolet Impala or equal, but got a Hyundai Sonata, which I do not consider as equal.
8.0 Excellent2019 Sep 03
Pros: The staff was great! Very friendly and quick. Explained everything.Cons: The price for the car for one weekend was a bit high, and the car was small and not very powerful. Only 2 suitcases fit in the trunk. But it got us where we wanted to go.
7.2 Good2019 Aug 08
Pros: Staff was helpful and drop off was easyCons: Would have liked a smaller vehicle, like what we requested.
8.0 Excellent2018 Sep 17
Unadvertised feeCons: There was a mileage limit that was so low that I would not be able to complete my planned activities. They were quite willing to sell me a higher mileage rate, but the original mileage restriction was not advertised (to my recollection), so I did not have an option but to add this fee. If I had this knowledge sooner I may have reserved with a different company.

6.4 Good2020 Oct 04
Cons: The car was filthy when I picked it up. Someone had sprayed pop on the inside and the windshield was covered and hard to see out of. There were greasy fingerprints all over the cockpit panels, the seat was stained, and it wasn't vacuumed out after the last customer. It was very obvious that nothing had been cleaned after the last customer.
5.6 Okay2020 Jun 18
Cons: There were A LOT of hidden costs!!!.. I booked online and prepaid. I had an emergency so I called them directly to add 1 more day, that day alone was over $200.00 (at the same $46.00 rate)...for ONE DAY!! There was no way to book the same car through priceline, so I had to suck it up. Perhaps details of the total fees before the car is rented would be helpful
6.4 Good2019 Jun 30
Cons: Give me the car I rented instead of one with 5 less seats. Change oil or reset warning. Clean car. Instruct us on hot spot or turn it off.

no issues, except vehicle interior was FILTHY on pPros: price was fair. in-terminal was convenient. processing was fastCons: vehicle had not been cleaned. there was tar all over the carpet and seats. There was ink pen, or marker, on the rear-most seat. There was debris between the back seats that was not vacuumed. Pulling out of the parking lot, I hit the breaks to have a vitamin water bottle (full) roll out from under the seat at my feet. I went back inside to point all of this out. It was noted on my paperwork.

National Car Employees at Rapid City Airport are GPros: I travel a great deal around the US and the World. I always fly/drive and my experience with the guys at National Car Rental at the Rapid City Airport was awesome. The guys I worked with both at check out and check in were very helpful and accommodating. I rented a 2016 Buick Lacrosse and it was a great ride. Thanks so much for a very pleasurable experience with National.
3.2 Mediocre2016 May 29
Pros: Located in terminalCons: Don't understand why I have to give all my flight info to use a debit card but, credit cards get a fast pass. Sill had to pay in full before the keys were handed over. Not the best customer service.

Pros: Staff at Rapid City, SD was friendly and cars were right out the airport exit doors.Cons: Staff could of been more familiar with the additional insurance sold on the web site. They told me it didn't cover an additional driver, which is why I purchased it through you rather then budget.
8.0 Excellent2018 Sep 11
Great car but they need to do better at explaining optionsPros: The car was a very smooth ride and drove very well. Was very handy to have the two extra seats in the back that made it comfortable for 6.Cons: They were not very good at explaining all the extra charges associated with the insurance and gas options which cause my rental to wind up being almost double the original quoted price.
