Not much - was a super averageThe staff here were wonderful the second day, but the pick-up was very hostile, and dismissive. They did the usual add-on speel - you want X, X, X? However they tried to push an upgrade on me - I live here and I think they thought I was a tourist. You do NOT need a full 4x4 for these mountain roads... This is Colorado, not the steppes of Mongolia.

The pick up address on the email that you guys sent me was wrong. That left me in a lurch and I wound up having to walk to the new location while I was short on time.

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 whichEverything!!

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.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.

Staff was friendly, phone customer service excellent, drop off staff excellent.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
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?!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.

Staff was not very friendly at the airport. Was a bit misleading in that the pick up spot was in town, not at the airport as requested. Staff at pick up site was great.
10.0 Excellent19 Oct 2021
It was easy and fast doing the paperwork and getting the car in Grand Junction, and the car we got was better than the small suv I’d expected (we got a Subaru Forester). There were two things that could have been better…. 1) The tire pressure light came on within the first 24hr of having the car and it was frustrating not having the owner’s manual ready at hand. I kept forgetting to look it up online because I had no signal to look it up on my phone while in the car (in remote parts of Colorado) and would forget as soon as I got out of the car. Ended up taking it to a friendly local service station to get the tires checked and filled. None of them looked low. The guy said the light goes on when the tires are just 2 psi below where they are supposed to be. 2) very unclear what to do with the car at the airport when we retuned it. No instructions anywhere. Had to ask a guy who happened to know…. Just park it in an open space in the lot with your rental company’s sign on it and then walk in and return your keys. That process could have been made clearer from the get-go!

6.0 Good20 Apr 2021
The interior of the vehicle was very dirty. Carpet was NOT vacuumed, dash and surfaces were not wiped down, so I know it was not sanitized. My wife and I had to sanitize the entire vehicle prior to our leaving the lot. This is a very sensitive time and to have a rental vehicle not properly prepared for a guest is disappointing. Had we not been late for an engagement, I would have returned the vehicle and rented elsewhere.

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 timemake 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.

Our check in agent (Matthew) couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. He did the walk around with us and noted every possible scratch, dent or other discrepancy and initialed them. He also encouraged me to video the walk around since we would be turning the car in to a different location. He then offered to go over all the features of the car with us. We’ve never had that kind of attention from an agent before.

5.2 Okay28 Oct 2019
They did give us a bit of a discount, which helped with the added cost of transportation downtown from airport, but it was very upsettingMy 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.

Due to Covid and some unexpected medical conditions I was unable to travel yet they wouldn't allow me to cancel my rental. That was (much needed) money out the window. When I tried to connect with an agent there was no consideration of circumstance and I was highly frustrated and disappointed.
1.9 Horrible18 Jul 2021
We were stranded while traveling, rented and paid the deposit on the vehicle, made other arrangements to get back home, then went to the airport to pick up the vehicle, and we were extremely rudely and inhumanely asked when did you make the reservation. When I replied when we made the reservation, and explained that we were travellers in distress, we were informed that they had no vehicles, they were overbooked, that for some reason, which was not explained, corporate had left the booking open. Over and above this, we were treated very poorly by the women in charge of the Dollar / Hertz counter at Grand Junction, CO Airport. There was not the slightest bit of regret, sorrow, not the slightest bit of apology. She appeared to be taking pleasure from the continued misfortune of our distressed travel group. We will never rent from Dollar or Hertz in our lives again, not should any traveller that has any self respect or any sense.

Great car for the price!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)

The staff was not friendly or helpful.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.

Cracked windshieldWe 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!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!Nothing... there was no car!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 haWhen 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.
