Cons: I left my sunglasses and hat in the rental car. I called the Enterprise on 611 Burnside St. and spoke to Kelly. She was incredibly rude and unhelpful over the phone. She spoke to me like I was an idiot for leaving belongings behind and it seemed like it was a huge inconvenience for her to be dealing with my problem. Even the most simple of questions were met with snide responses. I am still working on finding my own solution for having my items shipped to me. This is customer service 101 and she completely failed. This part of the experience was so bad that I will have to consider whether I will be using Enterprise again in the future.

Good value in a car rental, and the whole transact
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff. The guy at the desk even went outside to wash the car I was renting -- while wearing a coat and tie! That's dedication!
Cons: Facility is a bit small; they needed to move cars around in their small lot to extract the one I rented.

Excellent Customer Service
Pros: The lady helping us get the rental was very helpful and went out of her way to help us get everything settled.
Cons: On the downside, we had the original car the first night. On the 2nd morning the low tire pressure light was on. The rear hubcap was broken and had been pushed into the tire stem so we couldn't add air. The Enterprise office we were closest to gladly traded it out for a different car. Unfortunately the replacement car was not nearly as nice as our original car - not a comfortable, fewer amenities, and used more gas.
5 Sep 2016
Pros: price, cleanliness, and staff
Cons: Tire pressure light was on because two tires were low. Went to put air in the two tires that were low, but the internal computer was mixed up in which tires were actually low; therefore, I mistakenly over inflated front tires when the back tires were the ones in need of air. No big deal just took a little extra time and patience to fill the correct tires to the correct levels.
7 Sep 2016
Not as promised
Pros: They didn't have a van for us to take upon arrival, so we went with a smaller SUV. Not a huge deal but disappointing when traveling with 6 people and luggage all week.
Cons: We called and confirmed 2 children car seats, they didn't have them upon arrival (they did notify us as we were at the airport, nothing we could do about it at that point). We were told we had to go pick these up from another rental place- Alamo. They had no idea what was going on when I got there- it took nearly 2 hours to get everything from start to finish with all the drop offs- Also, enterprise's tag line is we'll pick you up- after messing up our reservation we asked if they would pick us up- they said no we are not authorized to do that. Its really frustrating when you don't get the services you requested or paid for and the company does little to help you out. I am avoiding enterprise from now on.
8 Sep 2016
Pros: Staff was pleasant.
10 Oct 2016
Such helpful staff
Pros: The staff were upbeat and fun and were flexible with my pickup and dropoff times. I didn't take it, but I was offered an upgrade for a very reasonable fee. They even let me return the car to the airport Enterprise, which was a huge help.
18 Oct 2016
Pros: Nice folks, they had a good car ready as promised. It was also a great deal.
Cons: Car could have been prepped a little better, kind of stank of perfume from previous customer so i had to wipe off everything. After that it was fine. They also gave it to me with almost no gas in the tank. so i immediately had to go fill it. But it was such a good deal that these things are minor.
18 Oct 2016
Pros: Everyone was very nice. Service was pretty quick. Best of all, they didn't have the car I originally reserved so they upgraded me at no cost to a brand new SUV.
19 Oct 2016
Counter agents couldn't be nicer
Pros: I ended up here while looking for an alternative to the high PDX tax rates. And I really enjoyed the interaction. First, these are personable, pleasant people who treat you like a customer. Second, they are willing to give you a break. Did you underestimate the rush-hour traffic on I-205? Run into a protest while getting out of downtown? In my case, they gave me another hour. It's also reasonably close to two different MAX stops, and not a bad walk (if it's not raining). And my agent have me tips on local driving customs? What was not to like?
Pros: I was very impressed with this rental. Very clean, modern, and tastefully laid out.
I'm coming back for sure; such a great place!
22 Sep 2016
Easy simple & well priced
Pros: The folks there were super friendly and helpful
Cons: the wait but it wasn't long
3 Nov 2015
Go to the airport dollar rental if you can
Cons: Asked for economy and got an suv...I would have gone to the airport if u had known only the suv would be available, Car Was dirty, Had Items From Previous Driver inside
17 Nov 2015
Pros: Entire process, with personnel on the ground in Portland and in Seattle, was smooth, professional, easy
Cons: Car was very clean, let me say quickly, BUT there were 2 empty beverage cans and a plastic glass that the previous renter had left in the console (between driver and passenger seat). Not awful, but who wants that.
30 Nov 2015
Top notch service
Pros: We made reservations in advance and there was a hitch because the rental center that had the two autos we reserved was the downtown location rather than the airport. The desk agent was very helpful in moving the reservations to the airport (fortunate for us they had two vans ready) and gave us the same deal we arranged at the downtown location. We had two families with kids and were very happy we did not have to travel to downtown with all the luggage, car seats and strollers to pick up the autos. Thanks Dollar.
Cons: We only use a half a tank of fuel in one of the vans, so we would prefer to get some sort of a credit against the full tank purchase option. Perhaps a proportional credit could be added to the credit card once the van was refueled for the next customer.
12 Dec 2015
Pros: Great price and easy drop off.
Cons: Always trying to upsell.
12 Dec 2015
Pros: Very quick service getting car and returning car. No problems at all.
14 Dec 2015
Best experience ever renting a car.
Pros: That was the fastest I've ever picked up a car and gotten on the road. The guys were very nice, asked if I would like to upgrade without being pushy. Didn't push it when I said I had insurance covered either. The upgrade was perfect too, a Subaru Impreza for only $10 more, since I was headed into a snow storm. Drop off was very quick as well.
27 Jan 2016
Pros: Never use again fraudulent practices#!!!!! I'm telling EVERYONE! !!!
31 Jan 2016
Pros: Apparently when I reserved the car online I had used the wrong dates--for 2 weeks later--but they were still able to give us a car at the same low rate. The car was in excellent shape and we had a great time visiting Portland and the surrounding areas.
Pros: It was quick and easy both the check in and check out.
Cons: Location is off site. But shuttle was pretty fast.
15 Jun 2016
Great customer service
Pros: The original car we rented broke down on us on our way to our son's wedding rehearsal. The roadside assistance guy was so helpful and a replacement was set up immediately! They were so apologetic about the problem and gave us an upgrade when replacing the car. From the airport shuttle to the car to the rental team and roadside assistance, they were amazing!
24 Oct 2016
Pros: Pick up and drop off personnel were courteous and professional. Car was spotlessly clean!
Will definitely book with Alamo again.
Cons: Wanted a more compact car but it wasn't available which was my fault as I didn't book enough in advance.
11 Oct 2015
No problems at all.
Pros: Every aspect
13 Oct 2015
Pros: The friendly service at pick up.
Cons: No active GPS without upgrade
14 Oct 2015
Does not accept debit cards
Cons: Please let users know when a company has a NO debit card policy for rentals.
20 Oct 2015
Cons: I never ended up renting the car because the service desk was closed by the time my delayed flight finally arrived.
22 Oct 2015
Pros: Every car I tried to book on this app wasn't available for a one way rental without a returning flight or a major credit card. Bank credit or debit were not accepted. The ones that would accept would not accepte rAtes and tried to charge over $1000.
Cons: Everything. Every car I tried to book on this app wasn't available for a one way rental without a returning flight or a major credit card. Bank credit or debit were not accepted. The ones that would accept would not accepte rAtes and tried to charge over $1000.
4 Nov 2015
Pros: Low price
Cons: Back seat was dirty
13 Nov 2015
Pros: Easy to reserve online and fast pick up at airport and fast checkout. Car was great. fast drop off and return to airport
Cons: Made reservation, no cars for anyone waiting, sent me 4 blocks to the Dollar was told they would price match they didn't want to and also were over booked
10 Sep 2016
Won't use hertz again
Pros: Car was clean and efficient
Cons: We requested pick up at the airport. Luckily before we went to get the car we saw a different address. The car pick up was a 25 min drive from the airport. We were late picking up and had called about being late. They still gave our reservation away and we had to wait for a car in the rental class- they didn't even offer to upgrade to another car they did have ready right away. They wouldn't entertain the idea of waiving the fee to drop off at the airport for when we left since we thought that was were the pick up and drop off were. There were hidden taxes and fees too. Just in general I felt like they were trying to hide the real cost of things. Won't be using them again- I haven't found that things are so hidden with other rental companies.
19 Sep 2016
Pros: Allowed me to go in early to check in paper work.
Cons: Did not know about the estimated city tax fee $33.
28 Sep 2016
Pros: When I found an Enterprise Rental Car right down the street from Hertz
Cons: I had a 1 o'clock appointment to pick up my rental car from the downtown Portland Hertz location, and showed up at the rental office at 2:01 PM after a $27 Uber ride from the airport. The door was locked and the entire staff was visible inside the business. I knocked on the window and was met by the manager (Flip) at the door. He asked if he could help me, and I informed him that I had a reservation. Flip imformed me they closed at 2PM (one minute prior to my arrival) and that they had given away all their vehicles. With a very unconcerned attitude, Flip told me there was nothing he could do. I informed Flip I had just flown in from Phoenix, Arizona and was in need of my rental car to drive to Eugene Oregon. He again said there was nothing he could do. I asked him what the purpose was in having a reservation was if they were going to be out of cars when customers arrived? Flip had no answer and suggested I walk down the street to his competitor. So, I found myself in a city I had never been to, dragging my suitcase down the street with no mode of transportation!
This "manager" named Flip of the downtown Portland Hertz branch was extremely unprofessional and a sad excuse for a human being, much less a representative of a major corporation. I will never as long as I live use another Hertz Rental Car! If you want a pleasant rental experience with professional representatives, go Enterprise 100 percent of the time.
9 Oct 2016
Cons: When we got there, Hertz turned us away because they were out of cars. A real let down and waste of time.
10 Oct 2016
Cons: They didn't have a car available. We had to carry our heavy luggage 5 blocks. Poor service.
11 Oct 2016
Cons: Did not rent. Office was closed at 2pm
19 Oct 2016
Cons: Were told can drop the car at the airport. Then, charge additional 44 dollars + extra fees and taxes.
We were really taken?
20 Oct 2016
Pros: Dropoff was easy. The vehicle was in good mechanical shape.
Cons: Pickup was a mess. Interior was dirty. Car was difficult to drive in the rain, unpleasant to drive. Very poor value.
30 Aug 2016
Pros: Everything was great. The car was clean and reliable. The staff were friendly and helpful! And the price was very reasonable! Overall impressed!
Cons: The total I paid was about 10 dollars more than what was shown on my reservation. They told me it was extra airport tax. I wish it was shown when I made the reservation so that I could compare the various offers correctly.
7 Apr 2016
Pros: Entertaining customer service
Cons: Pick up far away from airport and service was slow. Turned out to be double the cost of the quote.
5 May 2016
Pros: There are hidden charge on Payless car rental.
9 Oct 2015
Cons: I don't like how the insurance sold on the website is different than the one offered by the rental company, so the customer is pressured into buying multiple policies to ensure proper coverage. I ended up spending hundreds more than my reservation claimed.
22 Oct 2015
Cons: The shuttle never showed up at the airport to pick us up. After 50 minutes wait time -- we went with another company! Would not
go with this one again....
29 Dec 2015
Getting the car and dropping it off were among the cleanest experiences I have ever had. It took less than ten minutes for both processes.
30 Dec 2015
Pros: Decent service despite internet being down at the Portland facility. Employees very slow to process paperwork. Lots of side conversation that slowed down the line. Free upgrade to SUV was nice.
Cons: Engine light on vehicle 30 minutes into drive.
9 Feb 2016
Thumbs Up! Will rent again...
Pros: The personnel were friendly and knowledgeable.
They were able to fit my travel needs very well.
Cons: The distance from the airport to pick up the rental.
16 Feb 2016
NOT at the Airport!
Pros: Only upside was that a rep let us make special arrangements to drop off at the airport for the return
Cons: Booked for pickup at PDX - when I booked and called was never told it wasn't located at airport. Had to take a 20+ minutes shuttle ride to the location where the directions we had were no longer good. Super hassle and no one there seemed phased by it.
Cons: The extra pricing, doubled the car rental fee.
1 Oct 2016
Long wait for a car
Pros: Got a great deal for an SUV.
Cons: When booking said it was at the airport but had to take a shuttle to get the car then waited in line for about an hour. Kept trying to up sell us on a different cars because only had a few ready. Chose an SUV for a bit more money but was a good deal. Car was not very clean even though it looked like they just ran it through the wash.
2 Nov 2015
Pros: Small drop off location, easy to deal with.
Cons: When I made the reservation, there was no mention of extra mileage charges, which were revealed to me upon the return of the car. I am unimpressed with the way Budget advertised they're deals online without revealing all charges up front.
19 Nov 2015
Cons: The pick up was a joke. Wrong car, mix up on car, took over a half hour or more to check in.
25 Dec 2015
Kayak insurance is not Budget insurance
Pros: We got the car we wanted, worked out well overall.
Cons: Budget rep explained that our online insurance purchase was third party... Should have save the money and purchased at pickup
Budget rep explained we would be driving through a storm and offered a choice of two different SUVs at an additional charge because of 4wd. Upon further inspection every available SUV on the lot was FWD. We don't appreciate the dishonesty.
14 Feb 2016
Cons: Portland to San Diego, I was quoted a price of $347 for two days, sounded fair. I had to pay $550. If you are requesting a different drop off location then that fee should be listed.
19 Feb 2016
Pros: They took $15 dollars off of my $45 dollar rental.
Cons: Car WREAKED of smoke. Had to pick up a client and they immediately smelled it. Unacceptable odor for a rental car company and I didn't have time to swap out cars.
23 Feb 2016
Cons: Drop off location was not updatedonline
18 Apr 2016
Cons: Eveyone was great
Rental itself ran great!
22 Jul 2016
Okay, not Good
Pros: Drop off lot easy to find.
Cons: Pick up slow. Drop of people disinterested in helping getting us out of there. Chevy Equinox, which we had for a month, has poor visibility and turning ratio, making it clumsy (if not risky) to drive.
Pros: It was clean and smelled nice when we picked it up.
It was comfortable and had many hi-tech features like a USB port and Bluetooth
It was fuel efficient, we got 18.5 MPG
Lots of storage space in the back for our luggage. (We had 5 passengers)
Cons: By the end of the 7 day trip I was wishing that I could electronically adjust my seat, but I think that was more about being in the van for 7 days and less about the van.:)
19 Aug 2016
Brand New Nissan Rogue
Pros: The car was brand new and super clean. I thoroughly enjoyed driving the car. It was comfortable and had reasonable acceleration.
Cons: Upon exiting the airport garage, the attendant was very rude. The manager on duty happened to come by. He was very friendly and receptive. He apologized and explained that he's regretting the decision to hire contractors for this position. He said he appreciated my input and would use it as an example at his next meeting with the bosses. He may be lying through his teeth, but he was very nice and easy to work with.
22 Aug 2016
Pros: Pickup and drop off was fast
Cons: My car clearly had a smoker using it previously and felt like it was cancer ridden. I also found a bunch of pretzels underneath the drivers seat. It was disgusting.
23 Aug 2016
Cons: Was not able to use my AVIS preferred number in order to speed through the rental process. Please make it clear at the outset that there is cost to the discounted prices in terms of poorer service quality such as inability to associate the AVIS preferred identifier with your reservation.
28 Aug 2016
Pros: The car was clean and the return was very easy.
Cons: There was some pressure to buy insurance on the rental car.
18 Oct 2016
Customer service was very good
Pros: fast and informative car was ready and exact location was specified.
19 Sep 2016
26 Sep 2016
Cons: they cancelled the reservation once I got there. Horrible service and they were very impolite about it all.
20 Aug 2016
Pros: Nice car, friendly service
Cons: Early closing on Saturday
3 Jun 2016
Not what I was hoping.
Pros: Rental location was convenient. The car worked as expected.
Cons: I had specifically requested/rented a compact car, and was given a large sedan. I was told it was all they had when I arrived at my scheduled time, which I don't understand because I had made the reservation in advance. I wanted a small car for specific reasons.
The car I was given had clearly not been cleaned from the previous renter, the seats and detailing were dirty and the windshield and back window were smeared quite heavily. The smell in the car was also not pleasant.
When I returned the car, their "systems were down", so I was asked to write my email address on a piece of paper, make a few quick notes on the check-out paperwork and leave the key on the counter, without anyone looking over the car while I was there. There only seemed to be one person working and he was too busy to really help me. I never received any kind of email confirmation of the return. I just had to walk away hoping I wouldn't get docked for something. I'll probably avoid Avis next time.
Cons: Extra fees for mileage in California. This was not stated in the original terms of agreement.
11 Nov 2015
Pros: the staff was great friendly polite. things moved efficiently
it was quick in and out and the car i got was a decent car.
Cons: when i thought i booked a car with unlimited miles and then they say but you didn't read the fine print i knew I was in trouble.
my 16 per day rental became 96. the bait and switch kind of policy i didn't like but it is what it is. unlimited is unlimited unless it is not unlimited.
24 Nov 2015
Cons: Heater temperature control. Not uniform
29 Nov 2015
What I Expected
Pros: Service was informative and courteous and the vehicle in good shape. It operated smoothly and accommodated all the visitors comfortably. Being able to pay for gas at a good rate in advance was a nice surprise, so I didn't have to mess with it.
Cons: I should have asked for the height of the vehicle since I needed to park downtown. The height should be listed as part of the vehicle details.
7 Dec 2015
Pros: Nice clean car. Drove very nice
Cons: No early airport drop off available
21 Dec 2015
Cons: Tire tread was worn pretty thin - felt like it wasn't safe to drive into the snow...Staff offered no solution other than paying more for a smaller vehicle or canceling the reservation.
Their systems are about 10 years out of date - it took about an hour of paperwork and checking out the car before I was able to leave.
23 Dec 2015
Pros: Great Ford Expedition we took it up Mt. Hood and stayed at Timberline Lodge one of the nights!
Great room in vehicle and loaded options!
Cons: Ace rental said we didn't have any insurance and paid $150 extra directly through Ace to be covered in case anything happened to the rental. We paid for extra insurance via Kayak and Ace didn't recognize it. Inquiring with Kayak about that.
29 Dec 2015
Well worth it.
Pros: Very kind and service oriented. Van rentals were reasonably priced and great for people with larger families. Cost a lot less than all the major competitors.
Cons: The drive to their location was a little further out but considering the cost difference and they picked you up after you called them and dropped you off it was just fine.
7 Feb 2016
Pros: We got exactly what we were expecting and the staff was friendly and knowledgable.
8 Apr 2016
Pros: I see a few people wrote that they could not find the rental location at the airport. That is because it is not right on site at the airport and the directions clearly tell you to call for a pickup. I had absolutely no problems. The staff was very friendly, the van was clean and in good running condition and I was told how to drop the van off during their off hours.
I would definitely rent here again.
Pros: Good service changed vehicle for a different model with no hassle
The system works well
25 Oct 2015
The car engine wouldn't start
Pros: The only good thing about this experience was one of Thrifty's managers, Yasmina. She was very helpful (at all hours of the night) in getting us a car that actually worked.
Cons: The car malfunctioned and coordinating with Thrifty to get it replaced was a pain in the butt. I had to miss part of a wedding because of a miscommunication on Thrifty's end.
11 Jul 2016
Cons: The car I was given smelled like a rolling ashtray. I called every day I had it trying to get in touch with someone. After sending in an email complaint and receiving no response, I eventually called the national customer service line, to which they told me I had to contact the specific rental location and speak with the manager. After putting in two calls to the manager and not receiving a call back, I finally got ahold of her on my third call to the location. Not only was I told I should have called earlier (even though I had), I was also told she could not issue a refund for the vehicle and offered me $100 discount and a voucher. I never received the voucher when I dropped off my vehicle as the person working had no idea what I was talking about. Needless to say, I will never rent with Thrifty again.
