Pros: staff were friendly and prompt. nice car and convenient location
Cons: I searched for SUV on Kayak and found a good rate on SUV for the dates I needed. I got to location and was informed that "their" rate was for a standard car, not SUV, and the only "standard" car they had was tiny. They gave me a discount on a very nice SUV. More $ than I planned, but nice car

Pros: I loved that I was able to make a last-minute booking on Labor Day. The car was comfortable and clean and handled great.
Cons: It was difficult to get someone to answer the phone even during business hours. I was trying to confirm for several days that the location would be open on the holiday. Also $48 a day is a bit steeper than I am used to.

Overall a good experience
Pros: I liked the friendly and helpful service of the staff. The car we had drove nicely, economic and was very comfortable for two and a bit of luggage.
Cons: The 12V connector was faulty, so we could not use it to charge our GPS. We had to buy roadmaps, luckily all ended well.

3 Sep. 2016
Pros: The time it took me to get the car was very convenient. No time at all and I was on my way to my vacation. Everything about the rental was explained to me. The car was very comfortable and the trunk big enough to store all my baggage. It was clean and pick up and drop off very convenient and staff very courteous. The charge for the rental was great.
Cons: Everything was good no complaints.

"You have already driven the car. How can I give you a refund?"
Cons: The air bag was not functioning in the car that I rented. (The air bag light was glowing and, according to the manual, this means the air bag was not functioning.) When I called Hertz (having already driven a few miles), I was told I must rent a different car at a location 44 miles away (through Philadelphia traffic), since the 1st location was about to close. Two hours later as I drove the 2nd car away from the 2nd location, I realized the air bag light was on in THIS car too. This was actually a good thing, because when I returned I realized that the Hertz employee had not actually given me the key -- he had merely turned the ignition on. Since my wife and I had to drive home (44 miles again) in order to return my own car before beginning our trip, about 3 and a half hours passed between when we were supposed to leave on our trip and when we were actually able to leave. We had wanted to get a few hours of driving in that evening, since we had 700 miles to travel and didn't want to do it all in one day. But by now it was 9:00, we were exhausted, and we decided to wait until the next morning before starting our trip. This meant that -- rather than having time to visit with my family the next evening -- we spent the entire day driving and arrived at our destination late in the evening. When I had asked the man at the rental office for a discount, he told me I should call Customer Service. When I called Customer Service today and explained everything, they told me they could not give me a refund or even a discount because the car had been "prepaid." "You have already driven the car," the woman told me. "How can I give you a refund?"

Pros: The reservation shouldn’t have gone through because the pick up time I requested was when the office closed. So I paid for an extra day without using the car at all.
Cons: Making it clear that the office closed at 7pm
