Original car we picked up smelled of smoke. Returned it the next day and was upgraded to a new Nissan Altima. Beautiful car! Mandy was super helpful and made sure we were happy.

Dan at the Sheraton Hotel location in Denver was very helpful. Can't praise him enough. Can't say the same for the Denver Airport location. We were scheduled to pick up at the Sheraton, but our flight was delayed and we wouldn't be there by closing time. I called the Denver airport Enterprise as they would be open, not helpful at all and told me they had limited cars and it would cost about $350 more to get a car there. Called Dan at the Sheraton and he assured me that they would have a car ready for us the next day and he said we would be pleased with the solution he offered. He was right we were very pleased. Based on my experience with Dan I'd use Enterprise again; based on my experience with the Airport location, I'd never use Enterprise again. I'd give 5 stars if my experience with the Airport location was good

At first they said they only had vans left but had 1 mustang available all of a sudden for 15$ upcharge. It was nice to have the car but don't get why they didn't tell us that from the start.

My experience with the supplier wasn't good this time. I was given only 1car to choose from and it took more than a hour to pick up my vehicle even though I had a reservation.
