This is an older hotel that has been updated somewhat. The front desk lady was pleasant. Room was small but adequate. It appeared to be clean but we found tiny ants throughout. Breakfast was low end basic. There was shouting and police activity in the parking lot one night during our visit but not sure if this is common, we... More

After attending a wedding in Pacifica we spent a nite at the El Camino Inn.. The room has been painted and is nicely appointed. The bathroom is small..but it was more than adequate for 2 of us. The room was clean and the front desk attendant was hospitable. Would definitely stay there again. There was a delicious Mexican restaurant right... More

I booked this place along with plenty of family and friends for a family reunion since it was one of the only places in Daly City. Had multiple rooms. Most of us looked walked in the rooms and just checked out. The others had to stay because they couldn't afford the cancellation. It's not what it looks like in the... More

Not glamorous nor trashy. Owner was very kind and helpful. Knowledgeable of area and transit. A lot of things within walking distance including the BART station. Fairly quiet at night. Gone during the day so that part is unknown. We were there 4 days and room was cleaned each day. Read about ants, but only saw 3 - 4 the... More

Just completed 20 nights on the road and El Camino Inn was the only hotel booked that was definitely a mistake. The room was dated, fine we could have handled that but ...dirty was unacceptable. There were ants in the bathroom and as we were packing to leave discovered that they were also in the closet area. The linens were... More

This is a 50's motel with no frills. Small, yes, but, its clean, quiet, close to Bart and has a good Hispanic restaurant across the street... also a great 50's doughnut coffee shop as well. If you're on a budget and want to see San Francisco, this is a great place to stay and save. The neighborhood is fine, and... More

Small room and very small bathroom (no place to put your personal items as it was just a sink). Beds were ok but not very comfortable. Location was fine and not in a bad neighborhood and the BART (subway) was a block away which was great! We stayed just one night so that was fine. I don't think I would... More

I came to Daly City in business trip at first time. Probably there was some mistake, that office have booked for us El Camino Inn instead of Hampton Inn. But anyway, I spent 2 nights in the most horrible hotel I've ever been. Firstly, when I and my colleague came to the hotel, we found that the heater didn't work... More
