Alamo was great! We had an issue with the car we originally rented and they responded quickly and replaced it the next day. I could’ve replaced it the day I raised my concerns, but that one is on me. I missed their call and by the time I saw it, it was already too late. Anyway, I’d definitely go back to this Alamo next time I need a car in Seattle!

Unfortunately only one attendant was checking cars out on a Saturday, with many customers. I think Alamo is likely struggling for workers? Mecca (the attendant's name) was absolutely GREAT, though! Once car arrived, everything was smooth.

I don't like that the SEA rental facility is off airport, but at least there wasn't a long line at Alamo and the agent was friendly and got my rental papers pretty quickly.It was so frustrating that I couldn't contact the SEA office of Alamo, even on the so-called direct line that had an auto answer saying it was SEA Alamo. Any button I pushed sent me back to corp call center and they couldn't answer questions I had, nor add a booster seat to the reservation.

Quick & Easy Drop OffVery quick and easy drop off place. Then got a quick ride to the terminal.It was hard to find the drop off site by GPS so we had to rely on signs alone. Upon exiting, the road split and it didn't tell us which one to take so we had to ask for directions. Other than that, it was fine.

The Nissan Versa was not in great shape!I liked the compact vehicle that was easy to park and was very efficient in gas consumption.The Nissan Versa was not in great shape, with a missing driver's side mirror and it was very wobbly on the road at freeway speed.

Good selection of cars. Easy pickup.Several vehicles I chose - but didn't drive away - wreaked of cigarettes! Are you guys charging/fining people afterwards when they blantantly disregard the agreement terms that say NO SMOKING - because National is clearly NOT doing anything to actually clean the horrible smell from the vehicles. This is a big problem I always have with National and in general the rental industry effectively encourages people to smoke in their vehicles as the do nothing to enforce - or recitify the problem after the fact.

I loved the 2017 Ford Focus I got. I was great to drive.
6.8 Good25 Jun 2017
Who knew there were 2 different "airport" locations!When I finally got my rental car, it was very nice, new, and clean. The girl at the Hertz desk at the Marriott was very personable, and even walked out to the car with me to show me some of its features. I would definitely rent from the Marriott airport Hertz location again.When booking my rental car, I chose the "airport" location in Seattle. Upon arrival I took the shuttle to the huge car rental location, waited in line over 1/2 hour, only to find that I needed to go to the Hertz desk at the Marriott airport hotel. So, I had to lug all my luggage around the rental car building, find the shuttle back to the airport, then find a different shuttle for the Marriott, get there and get my rental car. I was very frustrated as it took over 90 minutes to do this. If there are 2 "Airport" locations for Hertz, they should specify which one!! Next time I travel to Seattle I will know, and will actually specifically seek out the Marriott location. Not only was it less expensive there, there was no wait, and the customer service folks were all very helpful. Hertz just needs to indicate which location you are renting from.

Good ServiceEasy to pick-up, easy to drop-off. Close to the airport but without the taxes. Service man was pleasant and office was nice in Marrott hotel. No up charges.A little more than we'd have liked to pay, but who doesn't like to pay less?!

My insurance was charged for something I don't feel was correct, it was minor cosmetic damage underneath the car. I felt that this was normal and customary wear. Additionally a 200 deposit was required to ensure I returned the car. The rental held on to the deposit for the duration of the insurance claim even though it was unrelated, the car was returned therefore the deposit should have been refunded soon after. It took another 2 months after the insurance was paid for the deposit to be refunded. I will never do business with this rental company again.

NothingDon’t call me 3 hours before pick up to tell me you can’t honor the rental. Also hold Economy accountable for having a valid contact phone number. Phone number on confirm is for Zeeba and the other is for an agency in Florida. I live in Kent WA.

I really enjoyed the spaciousness of this Ford Transit 13 passenger vanThe pickup address was incorrect. The van had a transmission issue and it was a very loud ride in this vehicle. I had no drop off instructions.

Top tips for hiring a car in SeaTac

  • While SeaTac does have a decent array of public transport options available, it truly is a car city. With a car, visitors to the city can quickly go from petrol Works Park to Columbia City or anywhere else in the city quickly and easily, as most parts of the city are just a 10- to 20-minute drive from each other. The Pacific Northwest is famed for its natural beauty, and driving is certainly the best way to get to one of SeaTac’s neighboring national parks.
  • Looking to rent a car during your time in SeaTac? At SeaTac–Tacoma International Airport, the car hire facilities are located in a separate facility that is accessible via 24/7 shuttle buses found outside of baggage claim on both the north and south sides of the main terminal.
  • Like most of the larger cities in the U.S., SeaTac suffers from moderate to severe congestion during rush hour. SeaTac’s morning rush hour typically lasts from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and in the afternoon and evening from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. However, congestion is not distributed equally across the city -- roads like the Northbound I-5 and I-405 are among the most congested.
  • Due to congestion on SeaTac’s highways, many of the highways have instituted a number of traffic control methods including ramp meters. Ramp meters are stop lights on highway entrance ramps that allow only one car through at a time at spaced intervals, thus preventing over-capacity on the highway.
  • Book your rental car in SeaTac at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in SeaTac are around 43% cheaper than other car types, on average
