10.0 ExcellentMar 16 2021
Pros: The staff were extremely helpful. I ended up changing my reservation to an earlier time with no cost, then was unable to make it in that early due to unexpected circumstances.

Will definitely come back to this location.Cons: Nothing

Pros: The staff really Did their best to make sure I was satisfied with my vehicle and their serviceCons: They did not have the car I reserved for me because they were busy.

10.0 ExcellentJun 19 2021
Pros: Very fast pickup and drop off. Staff were really friendly.
2.0 MediocreApr 5 2021
Pros: Nothing.Cons: The location was closed when I got there. How was I able to make a reservation at 5pm when the place closes at 5pm? On top of that, I got there at 4:50 p.m and the location was closed. I attempted to go to the airport Avis location and swap my reservation there but the rate was 3x more expensive and the reservation non transferable. Ended up not getting a car and had to cancel all my plans for the weeeknd. On top of all of this, Avis is now charging me a no show fee.
2.0 MediocreMar 22 2021
Pros: NothingCons: Couldn't even pick up my car
8.0 ExcellentMar 18 2021
Pros: The staff at the pickup was very friendly and helpful.Cons: I was unable to find the return location, tried calling and no answer. Ended up being late by 20 min and getting charged for a whole extra day. The drop off process was pretty bad.
8.8 ExcellentNov 13 2020
Pros: Very cleanCons: Pickup, the store we went to was very confused about our rental and the car had some flapping underneath
4.8 OkayAug 25 2020
Cons: They didn't have a small-sized car that I originally requested, and first gave me a large Ford sedan that was very loud (the moment you turn it on, it makes a VROOM noise without accelerating), and when I requested a different car they said they only had a large SUV, so I ended up taking that which was very uncomfortable to drive.
5.2 OkayAug 15 2020
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: The car interior didn't seem clean
7.2 GoodJul 28 2020
Pros: Staff was greatCons: I tried to change my reservation via the phone, but was unable to reach anyone. I ended up just dropping the car off a full day early, but was charged the full amount.
7.6 GoodFeb 3 2020
Pros: Pick up staff were nice. Drop off staff were not very friendly and seemed understaffed. I had to wait to check out and get my receipt.

2.0 MediocreJul 6 2021
Pros: Easy drop offCons: They did not have the car I reserved. The car we received could not fit our party.
10.0 ExcellentJun 28 2021
Cons: They took more money from my credit card.
4.0 OkayJun 16 2021
Pros: Car didn't die. Friendly person when dropping it off.Cons: Car made loud noise while idling. Called customer service who offered no assistance except the option to drive it back an hour each way to exchange and expressed no empathy for the inconvenience, after waiting to speak with someone for 40 minutes. Also the signs at the airport directed Fastbreak members to go to a different floor, only to get there and find that desk closed. No way to avoid the long line, defeating the point of Fastbreak.
8.0 ExcellentJun 4 2021
Pros: Car was excellent and exactly what we chose at bookingCons: In SF the number of people booking people in vs number of people waiting to pick up a car we’re not aligned. We were waiting in line almost 1 hour before spending 10 mins with a customer service rep to confirm our booking and pick up the car

4.0 OkayMay 10 2021
Pros: Car was okCons: Extra fees, gas charge even though I filled it. Won’t use budget/avis ever again
6.0 GoodApr 4 2021
Pros: Car drove smoothly. Drop off at Carlsbad airport was easy.Cons: I was assigned to a car that wasn't in the slot when I got there, and then in a traffic jam to get out of the parking garage. The other thing I thought was weird was for the first car I was assigned, I was told the car was on empty and would I like to pay to have it filled there... WTH? When has this EVER been a thing? I'm not paying overpriced airport car rental gas prices! Thankfully the real car I got had a full tank. There were also two men (other customers) in the rental area that were mingling maskless.

10.0 ExcellentJun 2 2021
Pros: I liked that the desk agent didn’t take very long to process the pickup. The car served its purpose, taking us from point A to point B.Cons: I had difficulty locating the desk agent because they relocated got the 4th floor. I also had difficulty locating the car because we got instructions that the car was in stall 310 of the Hertz lot. As you can imagine it took a while for us to locate the stall.
2.0 MediocreMay 23 2021
Pros: NothingCons: The 2 hour wait to pick up the car and having 1 person on duty killed the enjoyment of the rental.

5.9 OkayJul 10 2021
10.0 ExcellentJul 3 2021
Pros: No waiting for pick up or drop off. The locations for pick up and drop off turned out to be extremely convenient for us. The car was super clean, comfortable to ride and had good usability features.Cons: You should make it easier for me to fill up the tank with gas right before I drop the car off.
8.0 ExcellentJun 16 2021
Pros: Staff was great.Cons: Rate & late fee!
2.0 MediocreMay 25 2021
Cons: The customer service was rude when picking up the car they did not explain where I needed to go to pick up and made the process more difficult than it needed to be. Carlos the manager was just as rude as the old man in the front desk. By far the worst customer service I ever had will never rent from this place again.
2.0 MediocreApr 20 2021
Cons: the employee ill never rent from hertz again
4.0 OkayMar 30 2021
Pros: Staff was nice.Cons: Didn't have the car I reserved. They substituted it for another of lesser quality...Chrysler 300. Front shocks were broken.
10.0 ExcellentMar 6 2021
Cons: I was double charged by the online company that I found through your website. They then told me they would not give me credit for the extra charge. I had to ask my credit card company to cancel payment.
2.0 MediocreFeb 22 2021
Pros: Staff was OK, but they had no cars “for 1-3 hours.”Cons: No cars available in spite of having a reservation.
6.0 GoodFeb 16 2021

3.9 MediocreJul 23 2021
2.0 MediocreJul 3 2021
Pros: The staff was kind for the most partCons: I waited 5 hours on the side of a freeway because I got a flat. I wasn’t helped until 2am. The tow driver told me it’s because they try to get the cheapest company. When I called after waiting 3 hours the guy on the phone yelled at me for calling. I was kind and had not asked for an eta before that. Also, when I initially got the flat the car said low tire pressure and they told me I needed to drive it an hour and a half to another SIXT location. It shredded the tires and was not at all safe. Avoid my mistake! They also charge $10 per gallon if you don’t leave the tank filled. After I was up all night bc no hotels were available I was told I’d be given an upgrade. I wasn’t.
10.0 ExcellentJun 30 2021
Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable staff! Nice cars!
8.0 ExcellentJun 28 2021
Pros: Staff very helpful upon check-in.Cons: Umm....tank was full when we returned - I had topped it off. Sixt said/ 7/8 full - not worth arguing about but annoying. It was self check-out because after 7:00 pm on a Sunday night so wasn't there when gas was read.
2.0 MediocreJun 9 2021
Cons: Located at inconvient location, nonstandard closing times and i was charged sand my vacation impacted because i missed thier closing time. I wouldnt rent from here again.
6.0 GoodJun 7 2021
Pros: Staff was great, unfortunately they talk me into buying more insuranceCons: Stop pushing on extra car Insurance
8.0 ExcellentJun 3 2021
Pros: Had a great selection of cars. Was able to upgrade to a larger vehicle when the size of the party changed.Cons: Really difficult to get a real person on the phone. I thought I left something behind. Must have called a dozen times and was either disconnected or leave voicemail.
2.0 MediocreJun 1 2021
Cons: There was no one available at the desk at my selected car rental time. My airport was SFO and they were gone by 7pm. I could not get a car and had prepaid for the rental. I ended up eating the cost and renting a car at a different company. What a joke.
2.0 MediocreMay 22 2021
Cons: I could have gotten the car I reserved and not waited an hour for pickup.

10.0 ExcellentNov 19 2018
Best experience.Pros: Loved every minute of it. Will be back again.
2.0 MediocreSep 17 2018
No credit card? No rentalCons: I’m local to the area, and without a round trip airline ticket, they would not let me rent a vehicle with my debit card.
9.6 ExcellentSep 14 2018
Pros: The car at pickup had almost empty gas but on request, the agent filled it up.Cons: National should provide pick up service within a few miles.
4.8 OkayAug 4 2017
Car was dirty, dented, and overdue for an oil change.Cons: Was hard to see in the dark garage, but once you got into the sunlight you could see a few dents, and also how dirty the car was. Then, a few miles in the car started saying it was overdue for an oil change, that makes me wonder how well they check these cars over when it's already OVERdue! Not too thrilled about it.
6.8 GoodJul 17 2017
Would have been perfect if not for the child seatsPros: Everything but the child seatsCons: Car seats were really bad value for $13/day per piece (we needed 2). They were the cheapest possible seats, it would have been cheaper to just buy them. There was no good solution for a 42lb kid - too young for a booster seat, too big for the car seat. We had to shoehorn her into the available seat. Pickup of the car was good, but the person in charge of car seats was rude and seemed annoyed by my request to see available seats.
2.0 MediocreMay 9 2017
Watch your locationCons: It's my own fault for not investigating closer, but I was under the impression that my San Francisco rental would be picked up at the airport. When I arrived at said airport with my husband, two kids, 4 suitcases, 4 backpacks, and 2 car seats, I was informed by a rude National employee that my rental was to be picked up at the train station, which was at least 30 minutes away, and she could do nothing to help me. I ended up renting a car from Alamo by calling and reserving a car on the spot. I am unlikely to use Kayak again.
9.6 ExcellentOct 8 2016
Cons: We found a chocolate chip cookie on the floor in the front seat and a candy bar wrapper left in the console.
8.0 ExcellentAug 29 2016
Pros: good serviceCons: had to pay more than was quoted
10.0 ExcellentAug 20 2016
Pros: quick and easy getting a vehicle ( important when its 3am and you've got 3 kids under 5 with you.)

Pros: Pickup was poor, dropoff was great, easy and quick.
5.6 OkayNov 22 2019
Pros: Convenient downtown location to those of us who do not want to go to the airport.Cons: The trunk latch broke when I got my luggage out upon arriving at my destination. I had to take a shoelace out of my sneaker to tie the trunk shut!!
2.0 MediocreOct 20 2019
Pros: I arrived 3 hours after my reservation began and after waiting approximately 45 minutes in line I was told that they were sold of cars despite already charging. Caveat emptor!Cons: They could have had a car for my reservation? They literally stole my money.
3.2 MediocreOct 14 2019
Pros: drop off was decentCons: waited forever (1 hr to pick up) , the car was cleaned but some objects were left behind from previous renters, charges and rates were not super easy to decide on. I had to do a lot of the work I expected the staff to do (walk around the car and mark chips & digs). very slow!
10.0 ExcellentOct 6 2019
Pros: Very close to Union Square in San Francisco making it easy and convenientCons: Wait time can be lengthy if they are busy.
4.8 OkaySep 9 2019
Pros: Prices are goodCons: Stopped the self drop-off at time of your choice. That was the reason why I went there in the first place...
7.6 GoodJun 16 2019
Pros: Drop off was easy but pick up took an hour.Cons: I didn’t receive the SUV. While I still received a car, it was annoying to get a call saying they couldn’t accommodate me with what I purchased in advance. Additionally, it took an hour to pick up the car.
2.0 MediocreApr 18 2019
Cons: Too slow,only one man show. and my car was given up cost was more than 1.5hrs late. But no one told me!
4.0 OkayApr 10 2019

3.2 MediocreMar 31 2019
Cons: Poor transparency in contract & inspection. Car was not fully clean or properly maintained. One hubcap was attached with zip ties. Car handling became irregular on freeway & I had to call company for roadside assistance. No help was available for over 3 hours. Had to rent another car to get home.
