Palomar airport Hertz was nice, it is not in San DiegoPros:Carlsbad return man was very nice and helpful.Cons:Only dropped off in Carlsbad, not sure why they are getting all the returns there, My final destination was SAN and they are 30 minutes north, clearly a glitch in the overall system as Carlsbad Palomar airport was awash in returns.Reviewed 1 May 2017

Car was excellent!! Rental process a nightmare!!Pros:The car was a 2015 Toyota Camry and was a beautiful car. It drove amazing and was spotless inside and out. I made my reservations online for a one week rental from Monday to Monday November 9 - 16 for an economy car. Money was a factor in using Kayak, it had the best rates. I was in Carlsbad visiting family for Veteran's Day, which is also the 3rd anniversary of my son Navy SEAL Rob Guzzo's passing. He rests at Rosecrans National Cemetery. I was staying in Carlsbad with his 5 year old daughter's family. The Hertz Rental officer was 3-5 mins away and therefore very convenient. I went to pick up the car with my granddaughter's mother, Rachelle Trussell.Cons:We picked the car up on Monday 9 November, it was a rainy day. The rental associate was very kind, funny, and accommodating. I've rented dozens of cars in my 30 years in the military and very familiar with the up sale efforts at the rental counter. I made it clear I did not want an upgrade car, insurance, or any other added expense. The rental associate acknowledged my position and assured me the rental amount for the week...$139.00 including tax and fees I believe....would be honored. Rachelle Trussell wanted to pay for the rental car for me as a kind gesture and her debit card was used. Billing was a nightmare!! Her card was put on hold for a total of $600!!! and it was VERY difficult to get it released. It reguired several phone calls between Hertz (requiring a Superviser's attention) , the bank, myself and Rachelle. Finally the excess money was released! The hold of over $400 for over a week put a financial strain on an already stressful and emotional situation.Reviewed 23 Nov. 2015

Cons:The rep helping me initially brought me a car that smelled horribly like a wet dog. I brought it to his attention, and he actually said “i don’t smell it”. Quite absurd as the stench was overpowering. He clearly was ‘testing’ to see if he could rent it without shampooing the smell out. I requested a different car and he accommodated me.Reviewed 19 Jan. 2018

The Nice Man At The DeskPros:The man working the desk was incredibly friendly and helpful. Gave me my options, made sure I got the best bang for the buck (I pre-paid online so it didn't really matter) and got me a great Camry.Reviewed 10 Jul. 2017

Very low end vehicle with taped up fendersPros:NothingCons:The Toyota Yaris is not what I had ordered, very low end with no interior mirror adj, no key fob, no speed control, and no center armrest or console. Front fender had been taped up, rear fenders came apart from both ends from main body of vehicle, creating a possible disastrous situation if fenders blew off onto rodeway Hertz rented me a vehicle not roadworthy, and could have caused major hey accident.Reviewed 29 Jun. 2017
