Did not have car available for us that we rented and pre paid for. Only car available was $40 more dollars a day. Total rip off. Terrible service. Never using Hertz again. Not surprised they are bankrupt.Reviewed 24 Feb 2024

Pros:I did not like anything as I was not able to get the car. I left work only to arrive at the location on time and once I did they informed me there was no car available and that the info on your website had not been updated. I'm very disappointed and now reluctant to use your services again.Cons:I did not like anything as I was not able to get the car.

Pros:Staff was nice.Cons:Not enough people working. Hours did not match google/online. Staff takes a one hour break and no other way to get help/pick up car/etc. I requested, paid and confirmed a small car (lower mpg and parking in LA is difficult). Was given a full size car and the only other choice was a nice suv for 2x $Reviewed 24 Mar 2019

Pros:The staff was very friendly. They worked hard to fix the situation when they didn't have the car on hand that I had reserved. The exact Hertz desk is a little bit hard to find in the hotel, but overall it's in a great location and very convenient.Cons:The staff seemed surprised when I arrived, even though I had a reservation. They had to give me a different car than I reserved and seemed disorganized.Reviewed 22 Jan 2019
