1.9 Horrible12 Aug. 2021
Location (Anaheim) for pick up did not exist (outdated by 2 years according to auto dealership who was occupying space). When Enterprise was contacted at 11:40, they told me to go to Walnut to pick up vehicle. Walnut closed at noon and I was 30 minutes away. Walnut location told me they couldn’t wait for me to get there, therefore, I never got the car. Bad experience…. Walnut staff was not polite

First, finding the location inside of the Hilton hotel was a bit confusing. Adding additional location info such as location inside Hilton hotel would be good for both Kayak and Enterprise communications. Once there, the agent at the desk went out of her way to find the vehicle that I was looking for. The reservation was for a Ford F150 or similar, the vehicle that was waiting for me was a Toyota Tacoma, a much smaller vehicle. The agent called many nearby locations and found the vehicle that I reserved. I know that was not an easy task as there is a nation-wide vehicle shortage

We love the Jeep, it worked great the whole trip.We didn’t have any issue but in that case, we hope they have better connections to support us it is a little bit hard to contact them

They directed me a car dealership in Anaheim which was the place that Enterprise Rent a Car has been shut down a year ago. The phone number provided wasn’t working so I called the headquarter office of Enterprise and they said, there is no office at the place after visiting the address on the rental confirmation. I needed a van so bad for family trip to SD we ended up driving 2 our own cars instead.

The roominess and smooth ride.The price of gas at return. I was exhausted after a long drive home and decided to let them fill the tank. $6 a gallon! WOW, if I weren't so tired, I would have driven down the street where it was less than $5 a gallon. I'll NEVER make that mistake again!! And it was only a half tank and it cost over $40 to top it off.

Got a good deal on the price.Annoyed that the customer representative wouldn't change the fuel level on the document. Said that the car has sensor and the computer would pick up the fuel amount. I doubted what he said so I took a picture of the fuel gauge at the beginning of the rental. Upon return of the vehicle they tried to charge me 77 bucks for refuel fee. Luckily I showed them the picture I took before so they cancelled the charge. Didn't know if the guy was trying to screw with me or what.

I showed up to the designated location to pick up my reserved rental car and found the branch closed. I had confirmed my reservation the day before. Other customers were showing up as well to drop off their vehicles but the building was locked. When calling Alamo's main customer support line, I was placed on hold for more than 30 minutes. The representative that helped us could not provide us with an answer as to why the location was closed. They did not offer any solutions other than to drive to a different location which would take us an additional 45 minutes to arrive.Customer service on all levels. There are no guarantees with this company even when you have a confirmation number. I highly recommend using an alternative car rental company.

I liked nothing. This location was closed due to Covid 19, but on the website still allowed you to book rentals! We calling to verify and confirm only an automatic service was available. When we got to the office there was a note saying go to a different sister station to get rental services.Any changes should be notified to customers right away!
2.0 Mediocre13 Jun. 2020
Nothing, terrible experience. The Alamo rental business itself was CLOSED. I was able to rent and reserve a car, but upon arrival to the location the place was closed. This is unacceptable. I even called Alamo customer service and they confirmed the reservation and address, and said it was open on their end of information....but the place was not open for business nor were they answering their phones.Your company needs to check (especially with variable business hours/operation these days) to see if the rental companies themselves are OPEN before allowing customers to make reservations. In the end, I was left without a rental car and late for my trip. I had to find another rental car location to emergently book a car. Your company needs to filter business and not allow this happen to other customers because it was a big hassle.

The wind shield cracked all the way across the front windshield. We were not able to exchange this for 4 days. It was a safety hazard. Alamo said a rep would contact me and that never happened. When we did exchange we had to pay an up charge.

Drop-off was incredibly easy, and the car was great. Clean interior and excellent gas mileage.The gentleman who helped us at the pickup needs some improvement. When we arrived there were two customers ahead of us, and two other customers came in after us. It took him 10-15 minutes per customer (including us) to get things checked out. We waited for over 30 minutes to get to the counter to pick up the car (which, although it was reserved, had been given to someone else, apparently), and then it took another 10-15 for him to finish. He was able to get us another car and at a great price, but he talks WAY too much. I totally understand that being friendly is a big part of business and the customer experience, but he went on and on, tangent after tangent, with each customer, even though there were others waiting and it was clear some (including us) were in a hurry. It's more important to be respectful of the customers' time when you have that many people waiting than to chat it up incessantly with each of them.

They refused to offer a rental because I did not have a credit card. Left me in a jam and had to spend hours running around trying to find a car.Make the payment and security conditions a must read before confirming.
6.0 Good20 Sep. 2019
Friendly staffThe car had only 1/2 tank of gas, but they checked me out saying it was full. They did not give me any paperwork identifying me as a valid renter. Likewise, there was nothing confirming rate. When I returned the vehicle they initially charged me for fuel, even though I returned the car with more!

That the inside of the car was clean and there was a full tank.When you book a car online they have the car you booked not make you take a $2 a day upgrade when it was there fault for not having the car in the first place. Also they need to train there employees to take better care of the customers and not let them stand in the lobby waiting to be checked out while they wait check everyone else out. And they could have washed the car saying it rained the day before is no excuse to give me a dirty on the outside car.

They took care of me with in a timely manner and worked with me to make sure I had the car I needed.I initially picked up my vehicle at the Anaheim location. The young lady at the counter was rude and not helpful. She was condescending and had a terrible attitude to be working in customer service.

AVIS at DisneylandIt was close to my hotel and easy to find my car.The person at the Disneyland area location for pickup was rude. My reservation was duplicated in their system (I never received notification of a second one) and he proceeded to lecture me on what seems like was possibly a bug in their system. The car has obviously been smoked in, and the cleaning didn’t cover the smell well.

I didn't like anything about renting from Hertz. They didn't have a car when they said they would. Their local agents did what they could, however their reservation service is a joke. I wasted an entire day of my vacation trying to get the car I had ordered and then had to take a smaller vehicle or not have a car. Hertz gave no compensation. What an absolute joke.Hertz should change their name to Hurts! What a joke of a company to rent from! I have no idea how they have the reputation they have as a quality rental company!

Lies about availabilityPaid for an uber to arrive at the location where I’d reserved a car. No cars were actually available and my reservation didn’t mean anything. Wasted that uber money and had to find somewhere else to go and pay for a second uber. Terrible customer service. No apologies and there was only one worker there so I had to wait 20 minutes for him to finish with the customer ahead of me, only to find out I was wasting my time as well as my money being there.

Hertz cancelled on me the day before I was supposed to pick up the carI didn’t like anything. They were horrible.The day before I was supposed to pick up the rental car Hertz called and cancelled. They said they ran out of cars and did not have a car for me, even though I booked this reservation over a month ago. I had plans to take my family to SeaWorld and I needed a car to get there from Los Angeles. I had already bought the SeaWorld tickets and they were nonrefundable. Hertz really screwed me over on this one. I’m going to fight to get compensation on this one.

Pick up took very long as they were quite unorganized. Drop off was a nightmare- they were supposed to be open by 9:30am and I waited until 12 noon (which was my drop off time) and they did not open their business. There was no one there yet they had a line of customers waiting out in the cold.Organization, communication with customers, and promptness- no one took responsibility for today.

The staff at this location was excellent and went out of there way to try to find the perfect vehicle for me ... and the vehicle (Lincoln Navigator) was very nice.I had wanted a 4wd for our family ski trip to Colorado, but they could not promise that the vehicle provided on my pick-up day would be a 4wd (and it wasn't). That just doesn't seem right. They were able to find a very nice large luxury vehicle (Navigator) for me that they brought in from another location that morning ... so I had to wait a bit for it (but no big deal). Fortunately, the lack of 4wd did not become an issue on our trip.

We had no issues when we rented at the LAX location and no issues dropping off there but, the very rude man the Anaheim Avis/Budget rental office almost didn’t let us rent as he was angry we went through kayak and had no wifi for me to show him my insurance document. He was argumentative and down right rude. I will let people know not to rent from this location again. He racked the bill up as high as he could to make a buck!

The agent was able to fix my billing issue with some creative computer work.Agent had to fix the automatic addition of a fuel charge as I had driven very few miles; however, after I showed my receipt for gas that was purchased down the street, he fixed it. This charge is something that needs to not happen automatically, as other people may be more distracted and end up paying a lot more than they were expecting.

Top tips for hiring a car in Anaheim

  • As a visitor to Anaheim, you should rent a car to experience this extensive city. The best way to get around Anaheim is in your own vehicle, rather than depending on time-consuming public transportation. With a hire car, you will have the following local attractions at your disposal: Disneyland, Anaheim Garden Walk, California Adventure, and the rest of Orange County.
  • Excited to rent a car on your trip to Anaheim? If you are landing at John Wayne Airport, you will find the on-site hire car desks located in the Arrivals Hall, on the lower level, between Terminals A and B and opposite the statue of John Wayne. If you are using an off-site car hire company then you will be picked up by a shuttle from the Terminal.
  • Driving in Anaheim is an enjoyable experience as it’s blessed with good quality highways and freeways that link to other Californian cities. You will find many HOV and carpool lanes, also known as “diamond lanes,” which mean you must have at least two people in the car when driving in these lanes. Another thing to remember in urban areas of Anaheim is to always slow down when you see school zones or crosswalk signs.
  • On weekdays, Anaheim’s morning rush hour is usually between 7:30 am and 9:00 am, with freeways being the most congested at these times. During the afternoon, rush hour begins at 3:00 pm and lasts until 6:00 pm. You can expect the gridlock to start early on Fridays, and again on Sunday afternoons, when drivers rush to leave the city for the weekend.
