10.0 Excellent18 Nov 2020
Pros: Car was perfect for trip and very reliable. Pick up and drop off were super easy and staff was very helpful and accommodating.Cons: Nothing.
2.0 Mediocre2 Aug 2020
Pros: The staff was absolutely horrible, I made a reservation online.. when my plane landed.. the car rental place was closed an I had to fine away out of the airport. When I called customer service they told me they couldn't help me and it wasn't their problem.. No when I asked to be transferred to a supervisor she informed me there was no one there to assist me and hung up.. so not only did I not get my rental at all.. but I also had the most rude representative on earth.. very upset!! Wasted a total of 3 hours of my timeCons: make sure if you are accepting reservations for rentals.. that someone is actually there to assist the customer.. and bump up your customer service... absolutely appalled.

2.0 Mediocre20 Aug 2019
Pros: Staff rude with poor service. Cancelled our car 5 hours after we made reservation and only an hour before our flight to where we would pick it up. Offered no help, simply said we do not have a car for you anymore. Told me “you can walk” when I asked her what does she think how will we get home whichCons: Everything!!

Pros: YesCons: Everything was good
10.0 Excellent3 Jun 2019
Pros: Everything, but special shout out to the staff - they were efficient and very friendly, and I though I didn't have any questions I would have felt confident going to them if I had.Cons: Nothing could have been better, I was in and out in no time with a clean, comfortable vehicle at a great price. Absolutely would use this service again.
9.2 Excellent14 May 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly, phone customer service excellent, drop off staff excellent.Cons: I was talked into the fuel option by a staff member who gave me incorrect information about the distance to the town I was driving and how much fuel my car might use. I would have preferred if he had said "I don't know" to my questions than to give me inaccurate information.
2.0 Mediocre7 Mar 2019
Pros: I liked absolutely nothing--I arrived at the airport and was told there were NO cars for my reservation. Not a smaller option, more expensive option, NOTHING. It was explained to me that a representative tried to call me "but you were on your plane"....but you guys know we can't answer then, right?!Cons: Any sort of consolation for their error would have been nice. I was forced to go to another company and pay twice as much as what I had reserved with Alamo. If you don't have the cars available then DON'T TAKE THE RESERVATION.
9.6 Excellent17 Jan 2019
Pros: Friendly staffCons: There is usually a bit of a line when picking up but it went fast

8.8 Excellent19 Oct 2020
Pros: Great car for the price!Cons: I guess the low price was the reason the vehicle had so few features (no CarPlay or navigation) seemed to be very base model of Nissan Rogue. Rear window appeared to have been replaced (you could see the places where the window “grips” were when they installed it - and the rear window defrost/defog didn’t work either)
8.0 Excellent15 Jun 2020
Pros: We got an upgraded SUVCons: They charge $13.50 per day for each additional driver, including a spouse. This is high!
10.0 Excellent18 May 2020
Pros: The woman who assisted me with my car pick up was so helpful! She provided a map of the area, drew routes on the map for me, and provided tips for grocery stores, etc. She also permitted me to park in the rental lot when I returned that evening to pick up my sister at the airport.Cons: Everything was really great!
2.0 Mediocre14 Jul 2019
Pros: The staff was not friendly or helpful.Cons: There could've actually been a car reserved... No cars available for six hours when I arrived to pick up. This caused my trip to be cancelled. Don't confirm booking for your customers if there aren't any cars available.
10.0 Excellent3 Jun 2019
Pros: I especially liked the staff person at the desk on Friday morning (5/31). He answered all my 1000 questions with a smile and real responses.Cons: This experience was just great and there isn't anything I would change.
10.0 Excellent2 Jun 2019
Pros: The check-in process went quickly and they didn't pressure me to buy anything extra. It went very well. I asked for a smaller car, but got a nice truck, which was fine. The Sirius radio was another nice plus.Cons: I actually can't think of anything that would have made the car rental experience better.

10.0 Excellent11 Nov 2019
Pros: The customer service at both pick-up and drop-off was fantastic. Extremely friendly, kind, and patient with all my questions.
5.2 Okay28 Oct 2019
Pros: They did give us a bit of a discount, which helped with the added cost of transportation downtown from airport, but it was very upsettingCons: My booking was intended to be at the airport. I googled “grand junction car rentals” and it automatically propagated the downtown location for me, but it did not say non airport. It should have been clearer that this was not an airport rental. When I went back on the website after my trip to see what went wrong, it did the same thing. If I change the location that said Grand Junction then I see the top choice is airport, but the original google search automatically put in the downtown location as pick up and drop off. When I do searches in Kayak and other sites it is very clear, but the Enterprise site was not. This was very inconvenient! I’ve never had this happen before.

Cracked windshieldPros: We had a stone kicked up from an 18 wheeler and was concerned about how to handle the issue with Hertz since were didn't take out the extra coverage. We called our insurance and had everything arranged but did have a deductible. When we pulled into Hertz, the al who managed our car in Phoenix gave us a flat rate which was less then our deductible and did it all in one transaction. I had envisioned having to hassle with a manager but it was painless and we paid the flat amount. Car was great and we couldn't have been happier!Cons: Car wasn't ready she we arrived to Grand Junction, which wasn't a big deal but they did ask us if we would take a smaller car but it turned out the price was higher for the smaller car. We went to lunch and got the bigger car - a Nissan Rogue, which was very ice.

No car when I arrived! Horrible!Pros: Nothing... there was no car!Cons: No car! I drove 3 hours to pick up a car I reserved with Kayak. I had never used Kayak to reserve and I certainly won't use it or recommend it ever again! When I arrived they said that even though I had a reservation that they were out of cars! No other companies had cars either and it left me totally stranded! How can u make a reservation without making sure the company actually had a car first? Extremely disappointed and very frustrated.

When I showed up to pick up my vehicle let they haCons: When I showed up to pick up my vehicle they had no cars left. I asked to upgrade when they did have more cars driven in from a nearby hertz. They said "those are for the people who reserved a larger car" and that I reserved a economy. I mentioned that they gave away my car so why can't they alow me to have somebody else's and if they would please tell me why they gave away my car. When I asked her to explain she simply said "no" honest to God she said no she won't explain. I recorded this conversation on my phone. Will be happy to send the video of this conversation. I was calm and did not yell. I just simply got "no" for an answer when I asked if she would explain. Was a arrogant horrific answer.

  • Grand Junction is famous for the breathtaking scenery and surrounding mountains.
