This motel has a very low customer service and not meeting quality standards as well misleading their product offer. This motel DOES NOT have AIR CONDITIONING resulting in sticky warm rooms. People left their door open to cool down and refresh their room. What was really a shame was that the bed sheets were old showing dirty sports and they... More

We stayed in El Camino Inn as it was the cheapest place we could find with decent enough travel links to the centre of San Francisco. The BART station takes you directly to the centre of SF and is about 5 minutes walk away from the motel. The motel itself is in a bit of an inconvenient location as there... More

We stayed here a couple of days ago and enjoyed our stay. It's not the most spacious and nicest looking hotel, but it was clean and quiet, and really close to the Colma BART station. San Fran is only a short drive away as well if you choose to take your car. Our room only had shower (no bath) but... More

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

i had some fears about staying here, due to the price and location, being outside the main city. i have to say that this was a very enjoyable place to stay. if you are into true history of the old motor hotels, this is a great place to stay. there are so many original details in great shape making this...

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
