Location (Anaheim) for pick up did not exist (outdated by 2 years according to auto dealership who was occupying space).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

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.

Our reservation did not proceed because they don't have have a unit available. They said a voicemail was sent to us but sadly we don't have voicemail in your country. An email would be nice because the confirmation was sent by email, so we were expecting any notice to come by email.

I was charged more that was quoted, and upon delivery of the car at my destination, I was neither in the system nor was the drop off site in Bakersfield, CA able to process my return at the AM hour. As of this comment (Dec. 7, 2021, 11:28pm), the car has been returned, but my account has not been closed out.

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.

Gas tank only 3/4 full at pickupThe gas tank was only 3/4 full at pickup. Because the rental agent failed to note that in the computer, I was charged a gas fee of $50 upon return even though I returned the car almost 7/8this full.

A bit dissatifiedThe representatives at the John Wayne airport, who eventually assisted me, were great! 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.

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!

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!

Pick up location was convenient. First car had several dings/scratches, and the inside was dirty and stained. We asked for a replacement and received a different vehicle right away. Car wasn't super comfortable for a road trip, as planned, but it worked. Drop off was super easy.

The location we went to had terrible customer service. Their website said they close at 4pm. We booked for a car pick up around 12 pm and I got to the location around 12:15pm. Come to find out they stuck a printed piece of paper on their door saying they close at 12pm. We did not receive a curtesy call saying they are closing early. No email from them either. When I got to the location, there were still employees inside that can clearly see me and another couple there who had a 12 pm pick up as well. No associate came to talk to us. No associate even acknowledged us. Later on we see them run out the back door really fast and lock up. I went up to someone to ask what was going on and all one of them said was “we are closed already.” Customer service was just absolutely terrible. Had there been better communication or at least a heads up that they planned on closing early, no one would have been upset but the way they handled everything was terrible and upsetting.

Anaheim branch doesn't offer after hours return which is very inconvenient. Hertz is also not able to change drop-off location for prepaid contracts. Only after calling them numerous times they offered me to change the location for an additional fee of $320.

We reserved a car thru Expedia and when we arrived the guy there would not release the car to us even though it was on the lot. He said it was reserved for another person the following day...as if they could not get another vehicle for the following day... He just did not want to rent it to us for the cheaper Expedia price....very poor service!!!!

The car got a flat in a bust parking lot in Santa Monica and trying to get the situation solved took over 4 hours and talking to like 7 different people (some very nice, some not nice at all). After all was said and done it was very late at night and ruined the plans I had for the one day I rented the vehicle.

This is probably the best car rental experience I ever had. I drove a new Ford F250 Transit with all wheel drive, This cargo van drove like a dream as I travelled I-15 to I-40 to Albuquerque. For all that know this drive, it is extremely windy. My last trip (with another company) gave me an old Dodge. I was so uncomfortable driving the windy highways, the drive took forever because I couldn't go over 50mph. Plus the people that work at Hertz on Katella in Anaheim near Disneyland were upmost respectful, friendly and helpful. Iman made sure that everyone (including myself) who were renting cars were professionally and personally taken care of. A 6 day cargo van rental for $224 - unheard of deal. If you need to rent a car, you must rent from this place. Thank you Hertz and Iman.

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!

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.

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.

Unexpected costs from insurance. They told me I didn’t have insurance for the trip right before I was leaving while I was standing in the parking lot. I unded up spending way more than planned and I’m really miffed about it. They didn’t explain how much more it was going to cost before I left. It felt a little bit like they tricked me.

Do not useThe vehicle was ok, not the cleanest but, the drop off and complimentary shuttle at LAX was excellent.Make sure you have a paper copy of your insurance or you will get a very hard time. 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!

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.
  • Book your rental car in Anaheim at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Anaheim are around 77% cheaper than other car types, on average
