3.9 MediocreJul 16 2021
4.0 OkayJun 14 2021
Pros: Car was nice and drop off was easy.Cons: For some reason Priceline assigned a car on the other side of town from the airport so we had to spend $40 for a taxi to get us there. Then had to pay extra to drop it back off at the airport. Not cool.
2.0 MediocreMay 3 2021
Cons: Had to cancel because the rental desk was closed when my flight arrived
4.0 OkayMay 3 2021
Cons: I rented the car for airport pickup. I was told, at pickup that rate was for a pickup downtown and I had to get myself there. Off airport pickup was not brought to my attention when I booked.
2.0 MediocreApr 14 2021
Pros: NothingCons: I booked this reservation about a week before I arrived. Found out about 4 days before that I would be unable to keep the reservation. I could not cancel online and had to wait for 20 minutes to talk to a rep who tried to charge me $100 cancellation fee!! Ridiculous. Won't use Hertz again. I then told her it was covid related and she waived the $100. Guess a lie is what is required!!!!
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2021
Cons: If I actually got the rental I reserved. They didn't even have the rental I reserved. So I was unable to accomplish what I was trying to do. Horrible that I reserved something and they didn't even have it when I showed up.
4.4 OkayAug 19 2019
Pros: Dropping of and picking up was gray. Staff was great.Cons: Smelled like pigs. The Dodge van was the biggest piece of junk. Shook like a wooden rollercoaster, bounced like a trampoline, no USB plugs for phones. The radio controls where horrible. I would never buy one, or rent one.
10.0 ExcellentAug 6 2019
Pros: Pickup and drop off was the easiest I’ve ever experienced.
10.0 ExcellentMar 25 2019
Pros: Easy, easy, easy. Easy location, easy pick-up, and easy return.
2.0 MediocreDec 1 2018
I want a refund of the reservation fee! Not allowed to rent car!Pros: Absolutely nothing!!!Cons: I was thoroughly displeased with the fact that I couldn't rent the car and my reservation fee was not reimbursed. I've gone thru every bit of paperwork and terms and conditions and I've found nothing that states that I can not get a refund from my cancelled reservation.

10.0 ExcellentOct 9 2019
Pros: The ladies at check-in couldn’t have been any nicer.Cons: It would have been nice to have someone in the lot assisting upon return to the airport.
2.0 MediocreJun 11 2018
Cons: We were taking a car one way, plans changed and I was told that if we returned the car to it pick-up location that it would be cheaper. Nope, still over $800.00....never use avis again.
7.6 GoodMay 28 2018
OverchargedPros: Car was nice and efficient.Cons: Charged for 'accepting' a waiver for additional insurance. So confusing and deceptive.
9.6 ExcellentSep 5 2017
Stayed open latePros: Our flight was delayed and the rental desk stayed open late so those that had rentals could get their cars. I realize this is usually standard practice but I really appreciated it.
10.0 ExcellentMay 31 2017
Pros: Really liked the upgraded car! It was fast and easy drop off and pick up also.Cons: I wish there was a USB charger in the car
6.4 GoodJan 3 2017
Smoke smellPros: The service at the counter was good.Cons: The car was relatively new and was supposed to be a non smoking vehicle. You couldn't smell it as much when the car was cold, but as it warmed up inside, the smell got stronger and by the time we realized how bad it was, it would have been very difficult to go back and change. Also, the Bluetooth connections didn't work. We guessed that they had been disabled and perhaps we were supposed to pay for an upgrade to get it to work but if that was the case, it was not made clear.

10.0 ExcellentDec 27 2020
Pros: The agent at the Cedar Rapids airport (CID) was early for her shift. None of the competitive companies showed up on time. Cheers to Her!!!! The staff at the drop off site near Allen Road in Peoria were friendly, efficient-- great team.Cons: Nothing-- all good
3.6 MediocreSep 9 2020
Pros: The gentleman who showed me the vehicle was very kind & funny.Cons: The pick-up process was very long. I told to go to one location but when I got there found out that location was closed & to go to another location on the other side of town. When I got to that location I still had to wait nearly an hour before I was able to take the vehicle. The original pickup time was noon, but I wasn't able to drive it until 3:30 due to the vehicle "not being ready". Additionally, the drop off was very unorganized, I stood in line for more than 20 minutes until someone finally acknowledged me. It was then that I was able to hand them the keys & they will email me a receipt, but because they were short staffed I wasn't able to go over the vehicle with them in person Also, the location has very limited parking so there are vehicles scattered everywhere & stacked 4 deep in addition to parking on the side streets. This location seemed very unorganized & not very friendly
7.6 GoodDec 26 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly. Decently easy to pick up and drop off.Cons: Chevy Spark was super small for $50 a day.
10.0 ExcellentSep 17 2019
Pros: I had a big problem in the beginning ... but Sophia (manager in Cedar Rapids) was absolute amazing. She fixed the problem immediately and made me fell much better. I have rented from enterprise many times and she fixed the issue. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her.Cons: Make sure you have plenty of staff in the evening to help with customers. Once again Sophia made this a great experience and I hope she gets a pat on the back on how much I appreciate her efforts to fix the problem. She restored my faith in enterprise by going above and beyond the call of duty.
10.0 ExcellentJul 28 2019
Pros: Everything was quick and easy.Cons: He should have rented a larger vehicle, our fault.
9.6 ExcellentJul 6 2019

8.0 ExcellentMar 25 2019

8.0 ExcellentFeb 21 2017
No cruise control - disappointed.Pros: Nice color and roomy for our needs. Drives smooth.Cons: It did not have cruise control so it was pain driving it especially when you have to drive 5 hours in distance with your foot always on the pedal. No satellite radio
10.0 ExcellentJan 11 2017
Iowa City Airport Enterprise is AwesomePros: This is the 3rd year I've rented a car from Iowa Enterprise. They are the kindest, most helpful car rental in an airport ever. And I've rented cars 6x Year for over 20 years. Just real, geniune down to earth people. Cars are car's, but truly caring people are hard to come by.
3.6 MediocreNov 8 2016
Site confusionCons: I asked for a rental car at an airport but when we arrived, we found the car was at a location nowhere near the airport. Why should that happen?

4.8 OkayJun 14 2019
Pros: The pick up was not easy, I had to move my trip a day later because there weren't any cars available. When I arrived, the lady had the wrong reservation and I think this because the series of issues that i had.Cons: I waited so long at pick up for the lady to find and clarify my reservation. The rental car was fine. Then when I returned the car the charge was over $100 more. The I wish I was charged the rate service, she not could not help me!!
8.8 ExcellentAug 22 2017
Renting was smooth, no problemsPros: The vehicle we received was clean and ready to go at the appointed time. Gas mileage was much better than our own vehicles.Cons: A couple of features were not on the vehicle that we are used to, such as backup camera. Possibly if we would have requested a higher priced vehicle it would have been included?
10.0 ExcellentApr 9 2017
Pros: Prompt, friendly service. Easy pickup and drop off. Very happy.
10.0 ExcellentNov 8 2016
Easy-peasy car rentalPros: Super fast pick up and very simple drop-off. Car immaculately clean, in great condition, with full tank. Pleasant staff. I was able to make sure I received a car that fit me (I am a small person and not all drivers' seats work for me, even among compact sedans).
10.0 ExcellentOct 27 2016
EfficientPros: Very efficient to check in and out. Gas to refill the tank was 50 cents lower than at stations.
5.6 OkayMar 29 2016

2.0 MediocreJan 20 2017
Cons: I called to inquire as to what I should do if I could not make it to the scheduled return time for my rental. The woman, who spoke poor English, took it upon herself to charge my card for an additional day without my permission. This caused my acct to be overdrawn. When I tried to explain this she repeatedly told me she did not charge my card however I called my bank and they confirmed the charge. When I called Alamo back they said there was nothing they could do but refund my money which would take 3-7days and they had nothing to say about the overdraft fee. All this for what was just supposed to be an inquiry.
8.0 ExcellentSep 5 2016
Cross-Country Minivan MovePros: Moved my fiancé from Iowa to Boston. We got a brand-new Dodge Caravan with fold-flat seats, SiriusXM radio, and the flex-fuel capability which was a major money-saver. Was as smooth as you'd expect of a car under 15k miles.Cons: The van had a lot of someone else's trash inside when I picked it up. I spent a half-hour cleaning it out after picking it up. There were chip bags, pop bottles, grease streaks, and a persistient stickiness to the steering wheel that required dish soap to remove. I suppose this is the price paid for a low rate.

Pros: NothingCons: My flight was delayed due to bad weather over the Rockies, and by the time I arrived at my destination their booth was closed. I tried calling them 3 times during the day to alert them and no one answered (kept on hold every single time). They did not attempt to call me, and also did not leave the keys for my pick up. I ended up stranded at the airport trying to find transportation to my hotel. Awful experience.
