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.
30 Oct 2016
Pros: Great customer service and nice car. Exactly what I was hoping for
31 Oct 2016
Pros: super! I lake it
6 Dec 2016
Cons: enterprise took my on-line rental for palm springs, issued me a reservation number and called me the day prior to the rental just to confirm i was picking the car up in palm springs. but, when i arrived, they had lost the reservation and charged me double to rent on the spot
24 Mar 2017
We dont pick u up
Cons: i had trouble getting a car after agent lied about we just rented yours out excuse. 2 days later i get 2 calls for my credit card . i believe your female agent on burnside is a scam artist, i brought the car back a day early expecting a $24 credit but none was offered .i almost missed my flight w slow service
24 Mar 2017
Pros: This was by far the absolute, very best experience i have ever had with a rental company. The guys at the front were superb and even called to check in on experience next day. They were so great and so appreciative of our business. Very very ethical. I wish i had their names to write this review slecifically about them. They even drove us to the train station to catch a route to airport after drop off. Excellent. Portland was amazing as was but this experienced renewed my hope in humanity and how businesses conduct themselves!
Cons: Nothing to say.
4 Apr 2017
Pros: Great customer service
28 Jul 2017
Cons: They seemed very busy, we waited about an hour for our car to be washed and prepped. When I originally made the reservation I was told that we would be reimbursed for the cost to get from the airport to your off site area, but was told no at the office.
26 Jul 2016
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.
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
27 Apr 2017
Pick Up Confusion...
Pros: I like the Dollar was right there at the Airport, and no need to take a shuttle.
Cons: When I originally entered PDX for the airport as my search, and I chose the price deal offered by Dollar Rent A Car, it gave me a location in another part of town. I just thought it was an off Airport Site and expected to take a shuttle. The agent had to cancel that reservation, and then offer me a car at a much higher rate.
I probably won't use this service again as a result.
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! !!!
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.
10 Feb 2017
Great Customer Service!
Pros: From the shuttle driver from the airport, to the agent at the desk when I was picking up the car, to the woman at the drop-off... everyone was exceptional! Special shout out to the woman at the drop-off. When I told her I mistakenly signed up for the pre-pay as option, and I only used 1/8 of the tank of gas, she said she'd refund that amount and charge only for the gallons I used. Phew.
21 Jun 2017
Pros: Your people were excellent. So helpful, pleasant.
11 Jul 2017
Cons: Alamo tried three times to screw me over. Once when they claimed my insurance wouldn't be accepted, once when they tried to sell me a more expensive car even though they knew they would have to upgrade me for free anyway since they didn't have a small vehicle, and a third time when they charged me some tax that was never part of the original deal. Never again!
26 Oct 2017
Pros: The fact they had a bigger, roomier vehicle for my family. I like that. Thanks.
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.
Pros: Good service changed vehicle for a different model with no hassle
The system works well
2 Apr 2017
Pros: Like any other car rental.
Cons: Car Rental said $18/day..
rented for 6 days n paid $501..
31 May 2017
Pleased for the most part
Pros: The car was spotless when I picked it up. It was a very new model, comfortable and with all the latest ammenities- usb port, etc
Cons: It was not clear where I was to go when I arrived at the airport as the business is not on sight and there was no shuttle there waiting.
7 Jun 2017
Pros: Price and car were as promised
Cons: When I checked in, the agent was a little weird about showing my receipt for gas and couldn't explain why I needed to. Just a strange experience.
6 Jul 2017
Cons: I don't envision car rental companies staying in business much longer given the rates they charge, the cost of insurance that they encourage you to purchase, and the risk and headache a customer takes on driving a car that's not theirs. The person at the car drop off spent a long time examining a minuscule windshield chip that was already there when I picked up the vehicle! I didn't think to mention it to the Seattle Thrifty team because it was so minuscule. I will probably never rent a car ever again from Thrifty given how easily they'll blame the customer for things as minor as minuscule windshield chips. It was easily MUCH cheaper to just take Lyft around Portland, including to the far flung hiking spots, than to rent a car. NEVER AGAIN.
29 Sep 2017
Portland Car Rental
Pros: The car was in excellent condition and served our needs 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.
15 Oct 2016
Pros: Cheap and good service
Cons: No cruise control
6 Feb 2017
Pros: Very efficient. Quick service with no headaches and no worrying about missing my flight.
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 Mar 2017
The reservation had to be changed because Frontier
Pros: The lady who helped me when I phoned and explained that the prepaid reservation was for off the airport. The agent who assisted me when I arrived and got his supervisor to explain things to me.
i like how efficiently Hertz returned my prepaid charges.
Cons: It was not explained to me that there is a huge airport tax when you rent at the Portland Airport. I was unprepared for that.
24 Jul 2017
Pros: Car was very comfortable and great on gas mileage.
Cons: Car was clean inside, but had not been cleaned at all on the outside.
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?
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.
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.
24 Dec 2016
Best value for money
Pros: Clean car, best rates, nice service, no surprises
4 Jan 2017
Great Value, Odd Location
Pros: Quality vehicles, sharing fleet with Budget and Avis. Why pay more?
Cons: The rather limited hours (7a-7p).are a bit of a drag. And it's 5 miles from the airport so expect a 10-15 min shuttle from the airport. It's a great deal if you live nearby!
20 Nov 2017
Pros: Friendly staff and very good on price. Quick check in process.
Cons: Most rentals at pdx are on site but this is a 15 minute shuttle ride. Also the first car assigned had warning lights on so we had to change cars.
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.
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.
22 Nov 2016
Pros: Mitsubishi Lancer is a great car for one on the road.
In town dropoff is less hassle and much cheaper than airport.
One way rental was cheaper than I expected.
27 Nov 2016
Pros: Agent when I picked up the car did a great job making up for where Avis let me down
Cons: Car I reserved was not available
2 Jun 2017
Pros: Ease of service
Cons: No mention of upgrade options
5 Jul 2017
Missing information on AVIS web site for Portland Airport
Cons: There is no info on the AVIS web site telling you the rental cars at the Portland Airport, PDX, are located at the airport. Most airports, such as San Diego, where we came from, have the rental cars located offsite. We waiting for a shuttle van to come by, but no AVIS. We tried the phone number and just got the "press 1,2,3,etc message. Finally some airport employee told us to go to the AVIS counter and the cars were located in the upper parking structure.
