2.0 Mediocre31 Mar 2021
Cons: I paid extra for a small SUV. They insisted a Kia Soul was an SUV. The boy running the counter who said he was a manager had some of the worst customer service I’ve ever witnessed.
2.0 Mediocre19 Mar 2021
Pros: Very poor customer serviceCons: I upgraded and then realized later once we used the heater that the car had been smoked in. We were too far to return it. When I requested a reduction in rate I was told it was my problem because I’d driven off with the car
10.0 Excellent15 Feb 2021
Pros: staff friendly, drop off easy easily accommodated change in rental datesCons: car was very basic, still got me to my destination which was all I wanted. excellent rate!
4.0 Okay25 Jan 2021
Pros: I enjoyed the car itself, it was good on gas.Cons: I have never dealt with a salesperson so aggressive. I did not want the extra insurance for $190 and he said “well I’m sure the 40 people in the past week with rock chips would feel different.” I told him I believed my insurance was good enough, especially since I pay extra for driving in the USA (I’m Canadian). He said “no, that won’t cover everything, and you know if the car goes in the shop you’ll have to pay $90 a day while it’s in there.” His whole demeanour was aggressive, and the way he spoke to me was very snappy. I left the counter not even wanting to drive the car because he freaked me out. Of course I later spoke with a friend and he told me he was probably trying to scare me into buying the extra insurance. As it is, I returned the car 4 days early because I just didn’t want to deal with it, that ruined my trip a bit but I’d prefer not having that heavy cloud hanging over me.
10.0 Excellent3 Jan 2021
Pros: The gentleman at the counter was very professional and understanding when i needed to upgrade to a 4wd vehicle. Drop off was super easy as well just hand in the keys and that was it.Cons: Nothing to improve upon in my opinion
4.4 Okay20 Nov 2020
Cons: Need to be more upfront about the final price. Ended up paying way more than what kayak quoted originally. Found the extra charges AFTER checkout. That’s deceptive and unethical.

Pros: Excellent customer service. Car was nice and clean.
10.0 Excellent6 Nov 2020
Pros: The staff was helpful, efficient, and friendly.
2.0 Mediocre31 Oct 2020
Pros: Supposedly canceled the rental as the car they tried to give us was a compact size and my wife is handicapped and couldn't get in as it was so small. Asked for a mid-size which they didn't have. They offered a Kia Forte which is too small. The manager offered to charge approximately $100 for an upgrade to a Subaru Impreza which is the same size as the Hyundai Elantra we had booked. The manager was NOT HELPFUL and was the only person on duty for both Thrifty and Budget. We went to the next booth to HERTZ rental, explained what had happened at Thrifty and they matched the price we had booked online and provided us with a Toyota Camry XSE for the same price as the midsize car (Hyundai Elantra) that Thrifty didn't have in stock. Went back and supposedly canceled the rental through the Thrifty manager. Still not for sure if they cancelled it or not. VERY POOR SERVICE!! I am retired and do not recommend Spokane and the Thrifty manager!!! He is NOT customer service orientated and does not care about the customers!! Very disappointed in our treatment, however, THANK YOU HERTZ!!!Cons: Courtesy would be nice as well as customer service. They did not have the vehicle which was rented on line and tried to substitute with a smaller car that would not accommodate my wife, the Kia Forte. I tried to work with them on an upgrade, however at approximately $100 more for a car which should have replaced the Hyundai Elantra we had contracted for, this was not unacceptable. I will NOT USE THRIFTY in the future. I have used them in the past and never had an experience like this!! It was totally unacceptable.
7.6 Good25 Oct 2020
Pros: Staff was good, but we didn’t like the surprise about being forced to take insurance.Cons: Car wasn’t ready for use; it literally had a message written in the window, saying smoke damage, and we were switched to a minivan. It was okay, but I wanted a vehicle with better gas mileage.

8.8 Excellent22 Sep 2017
Friendly and helpful representatives, higher than average costsPros: Alamo representative Debbie at the Spokane airport was very friendly and helpful. She assisted me with changing my reserved vehicle type. The vehicle was wonderful, so comfortable and easy to drive.Cons: I changed my requested vehicle type at the counter, which cost an additional $134.00. This was about $50.00 higher than if I had made the reservation that day, and even higher than other rental companies at the airport. Because I would have had a $100.00 fee to cancel my original reservation, I choose just to pay for the higher than average upgrade fee. Taught me a lesson to only reserve no fee cancellation vehicles.

9.6 Excellent28 Aug 2017
Pros: I returned the car early and promptly got a rebate on my rental fee.
9.6 Excellent9 Aug 2017
Pros: The reservation, pick up and drop off all went without a hitch. Easy and hassle free. The staff was ready for me and made everything easy. Debbie was great to work with!! I showed up earlier than my reservation and they got me in a car early and extended my rental by one day without any issues. Staff was great!! Overall experience was great!! Would defintely rent from Alamo again.Cons: I drove a 2017 Dodge Charger with 2000 miles. Overall the car was great, but the USB ports would work off and on. This was frustrating and was hard when I needed to charge my phone. Also the main screen froze once and I had to pull over and turn the car off and back on. When it froze I was unable to control the volume, A/C etc. This must be a glitch that Dodge needs to address.
10.0 Excellent8 Aug 2017
Excellent serviceCons: In the Spokane airport, there was only one agent working the desk. This caused a backup of 10 -12 customers waiting in line to be processed.
10.0 Excellent3 Jun 2017
Coutious and effecientPros: Quick service. The cars were clean, right there and what was promised. Loved the Chevy Impala. Great car overall. Averaged 29mpg overall from a 3.6L V6 that had tons of poop. I might get one. So quiet and smooth too. Was worth the extra $30 for the week. So glad you had the car available.

6.0 Good11 May 2021
Pros: Nice, new car. Quick service downtown.Cons: The Spokane airport location wouldn’t rent me a car and I had to Uber downtown to pick up. They gave me a car with Canadian plates and a metric speedometer, so it was difficult to judge speed. Rental was very expensive and they nickel and dime you for insurance coverage. Even the basic, minimal plan is a gouge.
10.0 Excellent16 Nov 2020
Pros: Yes, everything was great. nice car, good price, nice emoloyees
9.6 Excellent18 Oct 2020
Pros: Staff very friendly. It was very much not intuitive that the location was not at the airport, which caused replanning on drop off, but not a big problemCons: Everything else was fine
10.0 Excellent27 Jul 2020
Pros: Staff was great, and dropoff was super easy.Cons: Not sure. It was a super easy transaction, pickup and dropoff.
6.0 Good20 Jul 2020
Pros: The staff was helpful in figuring out why I had a reservation but couldn't pick up a carCons: The website wasn't clear enough about which place I was picking up the car. I never got my car since it was not at the airport but instead across town.
9.2 Excellent5 Jan 2020
Pros: Staff was helpful, got the vehicle 2 hrs earlier than anticipated. Liked having unlimited miles. Great deal.Cons: Minivan was uncomfortable - but that’s not on enterprise .
3.6 Mediocre19 Sep 2019
Pros: Friendly staff. Very nice clean car.Cons: We were 1/2 hour late and our car still wasn’t there for us to pick up. They had to find one for us! It was at an entirely different location & had to drive us there to pick up.
2.4 Mediocre12 Jul 2019
Pros: When their system showed a completely different price than what I was given on Kayak (three times more), they were able to fix the issue. Although it was very inconvenient for me to wait for them to fix this, and to go to their services counter to resolve it, it did get resolved. So thanks for that.Cons: The vehicle smelled like tobacco smoke. I was not able to pick up the vehicle in Canada and drop it off in the USA, so I had to pick it up in the USA, and do a lot more driving. They told me the vehicle had a full tank, and when I got to the car it only had a quarter tank. Pricing problems too.
6.4 Good6 Jul 2019
Pros: The car was comfortable, efficient and reliable.Cons: The downtown location wouldn't take me to the airport 12 minutes away after drop-off.

4.0 Okay15 Jul 2019
Cons: Our flight home was delayed & re-routed through another airport - and Hertz charged us $400 for dropping off the car at a different location. Huge ripoff and we will NEVER use them again. The guy working at the Spokane Hertz seemed downright happy to hit us with the insane fee. Criminal.

7.2 Good14 Nov 2018
Pros: comfortable car. Sure did need the heater!Cons: The side mirror and drivers windshield were very spotty. When asked if they could run it through the wash again, person who checked the vehices out just brought out paper towel and cleaner. The rest was ignored. Maybe it had rain earlier so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Pros: No description of drop off process. It was very easy but I wasn’t sure what to do and there was no one present to ask.Cons: Written or verbal instruction on return drop point and what to do when arriving. Many of us are running behind on returning and a little guidance makes it smoother.

The car itself was in great condition, ran well, and was very clean. It was perfect for what we needed!Cons: N/a, we had a great experience!
8.8 Excellent7 Oct 2018
Good but needed windows cleanedPros: We loved the Kia Sportage we rented for a week. The 4-wheel drive was great in the mountains, even when it snowed. It was clean and very comfortable to drive in.Cons: When we picked up the car the gas tank was only 3/4 full. It wasn't a big deal but obviously something they missed. Another thing that they missed was the windows. The inside of the windshield had a residue of some sort that made it somewhat difficult to see clearly. It wasn't something we noticed before leaving the lot so we had to stop to clean it off.
6.0 Good31 Aug 2018
Gas tank wasn't fullPros: Person who checked us in was nice and friendly. He was quite busy. When I went back after we started the car up and saw the tank wasn't full, he said he would made a note of it. That didn't happen. He said to fill to where we started, but in Oregon we can't pump our own gas, it would have been too difficult to try and fill it to a little below 3/4, plus I wasn't totally confident that it would be noted in my file so I went ahead and just filled the tank.Cons: The gas tank wasn't full (below 3/4). It was suppose to be full and we returned it full. Seats had stains. Car wasn't really cleaned... when we cleaned it out we found some trash under the passenger seat.

Top tips for hiring a car in Spokane

  • The charming city of Spokane is easy to navigate and has light traffic, which means a car is the quickest, most efficient and comfortable way to explore the area on your own schedule. A car will also allow you to discover other destinations outside the city, such as Spokane Valley, which is only 10 miles east of the city and is home to more than 70 lakes and rivers. If you're visiting in the winter, make the most of the ski season by heading to the city's five ski resorts, which are all located within driving reach.
  • All the major car hire agencies, including Alamo, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Spokane International Airport (GEG), which is approximately 5 miles west of Spokane's city center. The car hire desks are located in the Ground Transportation Center so, if you're arriving by air, just follow the ground transportation signs after landing. Most agencies are open from early in the morning (6 to 7 a.m.) until late in the evening (11 p.m. to 12 a.m.).
  • Even though the city experiences a great flow of tourists throughout the year, driving downtown is relatively easy compared to other big cities in the country. Traffic rules in the city are pretty straightforward, but remember that all exits are on the right-hand side of the road. Winter driving may be the trickiest part, so make sure you have good snow tires and that you keep plenty of distance between your vehicle and others'.
  • Traffic in Spokane generally flows nicely all throughout the day, but driving during rush hour can add extra time to your travels. Avoid driving into the city or to the airport between 6 and 9 a.m., or out of the city towards the residential areas between 4 and 7 p.m. Traffic congestion only gets worse when it snows in the winter, as well as during road construction season, with one of the busiest commutes being the stretch from downtown east on I-90 to the valley exits.
  • Book your rental car in Spokane at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
