1 Jan 2016
Pros: Needed a car last minute after flight was canceled. Alamo had the best rate and was able to get a decent rental quickly for an overnight drive to NYC. Car was clean and had excellent gas mileage
Cons: The GPS and EZ Pass were nice to have, but they were a tad pricey to rent with the car (extra $35 for the two)

Great Experience
Pros: Everything went as expected with no surprises. The one thing that I did not expect was that I got to choose my care from the row instead of being given a car. This little thing empowered be because I chose and owned my decision. Little but important. Thank you for that.
Cons: I am a fair but critical person but I cannot think of anything I did not like and believe me I tried. :)

21 Apr 2017
Pros: The pick up and drop off process was super easy! I even got a free upgrade because they didn't have the car I originally ordered.
Cons: I don't like that you pay one price on the site, and your receipt states nothing is due at pick up. Yet, when I pick up the car, I'm paging another $100. Why can't both companies talk to each other and offer 1 price??

3 Sep 2017
Pros: We were very pleased to get a free upgrade from economy to a Charger. It made the ride a pleasure (I'm 6'9" tall) and a tourist event in itself - a road trip with a classic American car. The lot manager was very friendly and helpful
Cons: The lady at the counter service was a bit switched off and not all that friendly.

GPS too expensive
Pros: Car was new and nice.
Cons: Our GPS did not work so they rented us one--was too expensive; $121.71 for only 4 days--way too expensive. Also, the speed limit for various areas in Ohio were not current on freeways and other areas.

Staff was great! Car was not.
Pros: Lisa, and John, the man who issued me the car, were great. Very easy to get the car, except computers were slow, and the lines of other rental companies processed their clients in line on a 3 to 1 ratio with the Dollar line we were in.
Cons: The car had a serious vibration in the steering wheel and it wandered, making it unpleasant to drive for 300 miles. Almost new car, with only 3000 miles on it. Not acceptable.

Helpful and Friendly
Pros: The car was perfect for what I needed. When checking in the woman helping me was amazing. She was friendly and when I told her where I was going and that I had no idea where anything was she brought out a map and circled things for me. She told me about the area and just was great overall.
Cons: I was worried about the car because on the second day it decided that it was going to take forever to start. I could hear it turning over but it wouldn't just come to life.

Cons: booked the car for the airport pickup and when I got there they said the pick up spot was on the east side of town some 35 miles away. then they charged me more to rent from the airport. Pretty shoddy. I wasn't the only one - the rep told me I was the 5th one that day with the same problem. Never Hertz again!!!!!

Dropped off at departure door after turning in our car. AMAZING.

Renting went smoothly as it should!
Pros: The clerk couldn't find my reservation, so that made me tense for a little bit. I messaged my wife who sent my confirmation number and then he found my car right away. The staff was courteous and helpful.
Cons: They charged me a deposit upfront, which I knew nothing about and it took them 48 hours to refund it after I checked out and paid. Other than that, I had a good experience.

Great Service, yet not what I signed up for
Pros: I loved the Client service. The staff was very kind and efficient in both Cleveland and New Haven (dropoff). Everything was also very quick, I was in and out in less than 10 minutes.
Cons: I reserved a small car mostly thinking of fuel efficiency. When I went to pickup the car, the only vehicle available was a Jeep Compass which is by no means fuel efficient. Therefore I ended up spending 3 times the amount I had budgeted for gas.

13 Oct 2018
Pros: The staff on both ends were very good! Which was VERY NICE!
Cons: I thought I ad reserved an Avalon but when I arrived no avalon on the lot nor available. I had to pick from a smaller car and a van. I took the van as it felt a bit larger. I had about a 78 hour drive. I am computer challenged so drove without radio, GPS got figured out but couldn't get the voice directions to work. Anyhow I had wanted the Avalon as I was somewhat more familiar with it as my dad had one.

Pros: Clean car? Staff were all nice, but...
Cons: Pickup was a mess - couldn't get out of the lot the first time since the tablet system wasn't apparently working, so got it done on paper. then on drop-off they had no record of the car(!) Needless to say, way too much time was spent waiting for what used to be very simple. Never good when trying to catch a flight. Look at the title even "in null = in Detroit" - if that isn't poetry, I don't know what is.

Super Fast Checkout
Pros: I pulled into the return area, and was completely checked out in about a minute. The rental agent briefly walked around the car, checked the gas guage, and I was done. FAST!!
Cons: The car rental return is difficult to find at the airport. It's off-site, and I didn't see any signs for it as I approached the airport. You have to go through the "Departures" area, and then follow signs to an off-site lot that's about another 5-10 minute drive. Be sure you consider this extra time before your departure!

Top tips for renting a car in Cleveland

  • Cleveland is a fantastic working class American city, steeped in history and with a gritty authentic atmosphere. What lies beyond the downtown district, however, is truly magical: Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio’s Amish countryside, and the Cedar Point Amusement Park all lie within a short drive of Cleveland, making renting a car during your stay a fantastic idea. If you’re a cheese lover, make sure you also make the drive out to Heini’s Cheese Chalet in Millersburg and Broad Run Cheese & Swiss Heritage Winery in Sugarcreek, both located a little over an hour south of the downtown district.
  • Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is located 9 miles away from the center of town, and the drive will only take about 20 minutes. Explore the best available deals using KAYAK, with major hire companies such as Alamo, Enterprise, Avis, and Budget to choose from. The car hire facility at the airport is easily accessed via a free shuttle, which leaves regularly from the door outside Baggage Claim 7.
  • Some major highways in the state of Ohio operate as tollways, so it is best to familiarize yourself with which ones you drive on and the specific conditions of your hire agreement. The I-90, I-80, and I-76 Highways come together to make the Ohio Turnpike, a major tollway that connects Cleveland with Toledo to the west and Pittsburgh to the east.
  • Northeast Ohio is renowned for its snowfall, experiencing the heaviest months of downfall between December and March. During this period, it is particularly important to tune in to local weather reports and apply extra caution while driving on icy roads. The primary rule for snow driving is to provide additional space to the car in front of you, as braking distances increase due to icy roads.
  • Book your rental car in Cleveland at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
