Cons:The bait and switch on insurance rate. Not happy with that.Reviewed 8 Dec. 2020

Pros:Good service.Cons:The car itself (a Nissan Verso) was very disappointing: lacking in features I.e. Bluetooth; poor handling; and lacklustre acceleration.Reviewed 1 May 2017

This Hertz location likes to add items to your bill.Pros:I enjoyed the vehicle. It was great.Cons:I waited for 90 minutes in line before getting to speak with someone. I was on island time and that is okay, but don't try to offer me "upgrades" to make up for the wait and then actually charge me for those "upgrades". I feel like I got taken advantage of and that is okay because I was naive. I paid the bill, but I will be wary in the future. In speaking others, apparently, there were numerous other unexplained extra charges on their bills as well. I hope this situation is limited to the location and not representative of Hertz as a whole.Reviewed 21 Jul. 2017

not very helpfulPros:The gas mileage in the first car was good. The second car, a Ford Explorer, was roomier but the gas mileage was not good.Cons:The first car was not clean inside. Had stains on the seats and the roof. The outside had a lot of scratches and small dents. I did not see, until the third day, that there was a small gash in the driver's side front tire. A friend of ours seen it and told us that we needed to take it back to Hertz and show them and exchange it for a new car. So we did just that. The clerk at the rental station was a little put off at first and was blaming us for damaging the tire. I had to show him the damage at first, because he could not see it. He then told us that we must have done it because they would have caught it when they detailed the car. But he could see it himself with out being shown. He later became nicer, but said we might still be charge for the tire. I explained that we didn't do it and didn't try to hid it.Reviewed 28 May 2017

Car good, staff not.Pros:First girl who helped me was great. Pickup would have been pretty fast. Car drop-off was a breeze. Car we ended up with was great for the week.Cons:First car had maintenance light on. Second car had tire maintenance light on (just low pressure, we found out). We took the first car back into the lot, and the girls outside returned it. The lady inside proceeded to sigh, act like I had made the worst mistake ever, and walked outside to scold the other employees. She then said we had to redo the entire booking and acted like it was a horrible chore. Maybe it was, but it only took about 3 minutes. She was miserable to interact with and I had just traveled for 15 hours to be in Hawaii.Reviewed 6 Aug. 2017

Pros:Shuttle was quick and easy to get over to Hertz. Friendly shuttle driver who was helpful. Reservation was made in advance. Clerk at check-in desk was friendly and didn't try to "push" a bunch of extra services on us. She did ask if we wanted each extra though. Car was right outside the door. Car ran fine and was clean. Billing was as expected. Return check-in was extremely fast. No hassle at all! Back on the shuttle quickly and back at the airport quickly. Overall, very good!Cons:Of course with the flight just getting in, there was a line and so we waited a bit with 2-3 people in front of us in the regular line and two people in the priority line.. Only two clerks working. But in reality, it moved fairly quickly. No navigational system in the car, so had to ask directions. Was able to use cell phone to get us to where we needed to be It rained the night we picked the car up and the windshield had a waxy film (from their car wash I think) that made it really difficult to see in the dark and the rain. Inside of windshield needed to be cleaned too.. No gas stations where we were, so we couldn't try and squeege it off.Reviewed 11 Oct. 2017

Pros:Size and cleanliness of car, easy drop off.Cons:Needed more staff during pickup. Was very busy and while staff were moving through line efficiently, would’ve been great if wait was shorter. Wait was 15 min and would prefer 10 min or less.Reviewed 5 Feb. 2021

Pros:Easy pick up and drop off, good selection and a short wait time.Cons:We discovered our vehicle didn’t have AC and had to bring it back to Hertz for a replacement. Aside from having to go back to Hertz and wait while they confirmed the AC did in fact, not work, the experience was seamless. They put us in a nice replacement and we were on our way.Reviewed 8 Jan. 2021
