Aug 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

The staff was incredibly unfriendly, unhelpful, and most of all, unprepared. I booked a car with this Hertz location and when I showed up, was told there were no cars. It took well over an hour for one to be brought over for me from the airport. Zero communication or help from anyone "working" there

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was not friendly.. or even on site when I arrived. The check-in took more than an hour, primarily because no one was on site... at 2 pm in the afternoon, and then they had to go find a car. The first rep was surly; the young woman who took over (after returning from lunch) was OK.

Cons:

Having staff available during business hours. Customer service skill training. Car was fine.

Pros:

I didn't have a pen to fill out the mileage on the return form. A nice man with Hertz at the car drop off had one I borrowed.

Cons:

The car return was difficult to find. Only 1 sign on Rt 101 to indicate car return exit. It sort of blended in with other signs. More signs prior to exit would have been helpful.

Pros:

Great price. Once I found where to pick up, it was OK. It would have been better if Hertz had just said where to pick up

Dec 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The rental car was in good condition and the airport shuttle was fast.

Cons:

There is no way to drop off a car after hours and they do not explain or advertise this. No key dropbox or anything. The parking lot is locked and inaccessible between 10:30pm and 6am. Also, the phone numbers inside the rental agreement with Payless written clearly on the front direct you to the Budget renal company, who can't help you at all.

KAYAK

Pros:

I was not able to get this car.

Cons:

I am unable to give a proper review because the rental company closed at 12:00 midnight and my delayed flight got in at 1:30 AM, because it was a hot deal, I couldn't get any refund, I wish there were a policy to help mitigate these situations.

Pros:

Drop off sucked. It would be much better if we were dropped off at terminals instead of the rental center. We the. Had to lug everything on the tram and then to the terminal. This will keep me from using Payless again unfortunately.

Cons:

Drop off at terminals.

Cons:

There were extra fees that were not reflected in the price quoted on Kayak. You need to take a shuttle to get to the site. It was easy but adds some time.

Pros:

The staff was friendly

Cons:

This was the worse rental ever, we got charge way too much for 3 days, the Van was shaky and in poor condition don’t rent from this place ever.

Sep 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

Communication. My rental was scheduled for 3pm pickup and I called at 2pm to see if I could pickup early but the lady that answered the phone said no it won’t be ready until 3pm. I get there at 3pm and she’s tells me she don’t have a van available for me and that she might have 1 the next day. Other company’s try and figure that stuff out before the pickup. Also they call if they think they might have a problem not wait til the costumer gets there and then tell them they have to Van available. And then I had to ask if I can get the minivan at least cause it’s there. They when we said we called at 2pm to confirm and talked to her she said No that wasn't me not sure who it was you spoke to.

2.4 Mediocre

Sep 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing - the van that was given to us was very old and had a mechanical issue ( Engine shakes and driving wheel shakes on turns) the car started showing this issue 2 hours into our drive to tahoe. I called the office and inquired if I can go to the nearest rental and swap vans for the safety of my family. The customer service was very unprofessional and couldn't find me any solution other than dropping the van at a different location without getting a new van and in top of all of that getting charged $100 for dropping the van at a different location.

Cons:

Please don't ever get a van from there. It's for your and your family's safety.

They did not have correct van when we arrived, charged 300 more, and van we did get smelled like urine. We will never use them again!

Aug 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

There was no USB charging port in the minivan. We got it basically with no gas and they wouldn’t give us any gas credit as we returned it with more gas. When I dropped it off, there was no return airport shuttle and I had to take a Lyft which took a long time. DEFINITELY spend a couple extra bucks and use the main rental companies.

Pros:

The employees were kind, resourceful and worked hard. The car started, stopped and turned as expected.

Cons:

The location stinks-be sure to plan on the time it takes to get there from SFO. The building is hot and dour-I feel for the employees! The car was not clean. I would pay extra to get a car at the SFO rental center next time.

Shuttle was waiting for us at the airport

Jun 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

It should be clearly noted on the vendor website that this is an OFF SITE airport pick up. We waited 30 minutes for a shuttle pick up that fits 6 person max in a poorly maintained van. Additional customers were left behind for another 30 minutes for later pickup. The EZ rental car in other airport locations outside of San Francisco were unlike this branch in its service, location and overall appeal. We were deeply disappointed with our rental service at the San Francisco EZ Rental car. We would rather pay a bit more for a more convenient airport location and more piedessional service the next time we're in San Francisco.

Pros:

The car was fine

I paid during pick up and extra 200 dollars as deposit, until today I didn't receive that amount and they never replied to my email messages.

5.6 Okay

Apr 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

A comfortable late model car

Cons:

The pickup drop off required almost 2 hours since the location is another 5-8 miles from where other rental car companies are located. And once at facility there are only 2 agents who take care of a long line. They push upgrades like the tolls for the bridge without explaining alternatives. You can pay cash everywhere and do online payment for Golden Gate Bridge. So avoid the prepayment if you are not crossing the bridge several times a day.

Pros:

Friendly, helpful staff, and efficient pickup and dropoff to and from the SFO rental car center. The Quattro was lots of fun to drive, with comfortable seats and great controls for comprehensive panels.

Cons:

I wasn't able to download the app (I'd changed my iTunes password and hadn't needed it on the phone for several months), and the website interface for a mobile device was sometimes not as intuitive as it could be.
