Dollar Rental Car Center at CLE

Helpful and Friendly
Pros: The car was perfect for what I needed. When checking in the woman helping me was amazing. She was friendly and when I told her where I was going and that I had no idea where anything was she brought out a map and circled things for me. She told me about the area and just was great overall.
Cons: I was worried about the car because on the second day it decided that it was going to take forever to start. I could hear it turning over but it wouldn't just come to life.

Inexcusable wait at pick up counter
Cons: I waited for over 30 minutes in line to pick up the car. I still had another 15 minutes to go when I noticed that all other car rental counters had no lines. I went to Alamo that had no line and rented a larger car for the same price.

Had to wait over an hour for our vehicle
Pros: The vehicle was fine, but the fact that Hertz wasted an hour of my precious vacation time was inexcusable.
Cons: When we arrived to pick up our vehicle we had to wait over an hour until one was available. There were about 10 people in front of us also waiting for vehicles. We were not early - we arrived at the time we reserved (slightly later, in fact). As a result of this, we were late to our intended destination.
2.0 Poor
11 Sep 2016
Unimpressed
Cons: When I went to pick up my rental it took 90 minutes just to get the paperwork done for the rental. Then we decided to add a day to our trip and they wouldn't honor our rate and tried to charge is for a weekly rate that was $200 more then our original bill. Management came to speak with us and was not helpful in anyway. We eventually stood there so long trying to figure it out that we just cancelled our whole rental and went with someone else.
8.4 Excellent
20 Sep 2016
Pros: The price and the ease of dropoff.
Cons: The pickup. The Altima that they brought up looked great but they could not find it in their system. Took over 30 minutes of them trying to figure it out before they gave up and brought up an Nissan Rogue SUV which I didn't order but took so I could get out of there. I did end up liking the Rogue but the experience at the counter was horrible

Pros: Needed a car last minute after flight was canceled. Alamo had the best rate and was able to get a decent rental quickly for an overnight drive to NYC. Car was clean and had excellent gas mileage
Cons: The GPS and EZ Pass were nice to have, but they were a tad pricey to rent with the car (extra $35 for the two)

Great Experience
Pros: Everything went as expected with no surprises. The one thing that I did not expect was that I got to choose my care from the row instead of being given a car. This little thing empowered be because I chose and owned my decision. Little but important. Thank you for that.
Cons: I am a fair but critical person but I cannot think of anything I did not like and believe me I tried. :)
8.8 Excellent
21 Apr 2017
Pros: The pick up and drop off process was super easy! I even got a free upgrade because they didn't have the car I originally ordered.
Cons: I don't like that you pay one price on the site, and your receipt states nothing is due at pick up. Yet, when I pick up the car, I'm paging another $100. Why can't both companies talk to each other and offer 1 price??

GPS too expensive
Pros: Car was new and nice.
Cons: Our GPS did not work so they rented us one--was too expensive; $121.71 for only 4 days--way too expensive. Also, the speed limit for various areas in Ohio were not current on freeways and other areas.

Renting went smoothly as it should!
Pros: The clerk couldn't find my reservation, so that made me tense for a little bit. I messaged my wife who sent my confirmation number and then he found my car right away. The staff was courteous and helpful.
Cons: They charged me a deposit upfront, which I knew nothing about and it took them 48 hours to refund it after I checked out and paid. Other than that, I had a good experience.

Great Service, yet not what I signed up for
Pros: I loved the Client service. The staff was very kind and efficient in both Cleveland and New Haven (dropoff). Everything was also very quick, I was in and out in less than 10 minutes.
Cons: I reserved a small car mostly thinking of fuel efficiency. When I went to pickup the car, the only vehicle available was a Jeep Compass which is by no means fuel efficient. Therefore I ended up spending 3 times the amount I had budgeted for gas.

Car: meh. Staff: nice but apparently incompetent (
Pros: Clean car? Staff were all nice, but...
Cons: Pickup was a mess - couldn't get out of the lot the first time since the tablet system wasn't apparently working, so got it done on paper. then on drop-off they had no record of the car(!) Needless to say, way too much time was spent waiting for what used to be very simple. Never good when trying to catch a flight. Look at the title even "in null = in Detroit" - if that isn't poetry, I don't know what is.

Need more information and customer service needs t
Cons: I wasn't able to pick up my reserved car because they did not accept Debit Cards as I was under 25 I wish this information was told to be before I reserved the car. Luckly the Enterprise representative a couple booths down was able to help me out and give me a comparable deal. I highly recommend the Enterprise at the Cleveland Rental Car Center. Cheers.

Great car, quote was underestimated
Pros: The car we were given was exactly what we needed. A smaller SUV with decent gas mileage and all the bells and whistles.
Cons: I was charged $60 more than what I was quoted as the estimate. I reported the billing issue 4 days ago and still have not heard back, so I might have to dispute the charges.

Pros: The car was clean and low miles

Pros: Thrifty was great about exchanging my car - twice - during my rental. First, a rock hit my windshield. Then, one morning the car wouldn't start and they towed me to a place to get a new one.

10 Apr 2017
Pros: The car was clean, and met our needs.
Cons: I had reserved a small SUV initially. When I went to get the car, I was told that the reservation was for a compact, and if I wanted a larger car, the price increased. At that point, I didn't have a choice because I needed a bigger car, so I ended up paying over $100 more then the reservation initially showed. The representative was not helpful in resolving the issue, and told me there was nothing she could do about it. When I dropped the car off, no one was there for me to talk to. I didn't hear anything about Thrifty receiving the car, or get any information about it the next day, like the sign said I would. Not a place I will rent from again.

Cons: Got to Cleveland to return and unfortunately forgot to gas the car. Expected a fee but Avis charged us 9.99 a gallon and they only had one agent working the counter so my husband had to wait forever to be robbed and treated rudely. Whole process of return took one and a half hours. Will never use Avis again.

Cons: I was told drop off was late, but still during business hours. The lights were on at the CLE airport drop off area, and the inside desk was staffed, but no one came out to close out my rental. There was no sign posted advising that this was after hours. After waiting around I finally just dropped the keys in the nightbox. Intuitive, but some posted guidance would have been appreciated.
