The staff, the food, was excellent! They had your choice of complimentry breakfast or the Resturaunt. The complimentry breakfast, had great, top notch pastry's, plus the biggest bagels i've seen since growing up in New York! The Resturaunt, was excellent! and not over pricey!! Everybody, when your in San Fran, go there!

I've stayed at the Best Western PLUS El Rancho Inn on all of my flights from SFO to other destinations. Receptionist are friendly and answer all of my inquiries about details for my reservation.

I didn't look into this hotel enough The good: Breakfast service area was clean. Breakfast was ok for a grab and go. Seating area small but inviting. The bad: with the park and fly you leave your keys to your car. They can move your car about during your stay. We had some items stolen from our car. 24 hr... More

This is a well organized motel. We are always satisfied with the service and the friendliness of the staff. We have stayed here for years as the rooms are nice, the restaurant is excellent and the service they provide with transportation to the airport is most convenient.

Date stayed 24th Aug. We were unable to get on our flight back to LHR, so we stayed here overnight. What a great hotel, lovely staff, very pleasant, polite and helpful. Our room was very big, clean and tidy. The young lady working in the bar was extremely helpful and great at her job. After a long day of travelling... More

As it says, great location for the airport. Motel style with free WiFi, free breakfast and decent air con. Rooms were fine for one night. Not sure that most of their customers stay more than one night. Plenty of places to eat within walking distances. Didn't try to charge us for extras, which made a nice change. Would I stay... More

We have stayed many times as we live far from SFO. The rooms are so clean and comfortable, not large but cozy. The staff is very helpful and they really have the park and fly organized and well run. It goes like clock work and we are always on time and picked up soon after our arrival. They also have... More

Hotel was very clean and spacious. Great breakfast, great pool. Not close to san Francisco but we rented a car (parked it there for free) and saved quite a bit. Friendly staff too. Beautiful hotel. We would definitely stay here again.

This quality, mature property offers all the amenities you need when in the San Francisco bay area. With shuttle service to the airport and convenient freeway location, you are within minutes of most tourist attractions. The motel is attractive,clean, and reasonably priced.

We have stayed at Best Western El Rancho Inn many times during the past 30 years. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, and the staff is always friendly and helpful.
