An early morning departure, and then a late night return (arrival) form being on holiday. This hotel was above what I expected for a 'Fly & Drive' for SFO. If I need to this type of accommodation again, I will certainly return to this hotel.

I always stay here when traveling out of the country, via SF airport. I would use them all the time, but for business my company has contracts with certain hotels which I must use. The drivers and hotel staff are always on top of things and they do a great job. I highly recommend them

Decent stay overall, better than expected. The room was of average size and clean. The place is made up of several buildings, the main section of which is a two story external balcony "motor lodge" style hotel surrounding the pool and restaurant, where I stayed. Kind of retro and charming. Fitness center was good, with a universal gym machine, cardio... More

Stayed for business at El Rancho. The positive reviews of the hotel were accurate. The rooms were spotless and a good size. The ambiance of the hotel is relaxed and the service is excellent. The pool area makes you feel like your at a resort rather than an airport area hotel. I had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Both... More

It was a beautiful hotel and will go back. Just was very expensive and room was small. The breakfast could have had more choices. Nothing for my grandson. But there was charm of the hotel. The boys enjoyed the pool. The shuttle was great from airport.

We stayed here the night before going to Mexico, and left our car here during our trip. Very good value for your money. Shuttle service is efficient. Free breakfast is pretty basic. Rooms are basic but clean and serve the purpose. Good dive bar down the street. Restaurants close by. We will stay again.

This was an excellent choice for an early departure from SFO. They were able to tell us how to get our car back without getting back on the freeway and where the nearest gas station was. Plus, we arrived early the day before and they had a room for us at 9:30 in the morning. Service was super. Hotel bar... More

This is a very convenient Park and Sleep option when flying out of SFO. Stay either before or after your trip. The shuttle to and from the airport is pretty quick. We did have to place a second call to be assured that the shuttle was on its way after waiting about 20 minutes. Then it arrived.

We stayed here recently for an early flight out of SFO, and its the best, reasonably priced airport hotel we've stayed in near SFO. Our room was quiet, the shuttle service was on time, and the one of us that stayed behind said that the breakfast was simple, but good. The service at reception was quick and friendly. Terrific hotel... More

As always you can count on a comfortable stay with an excellent restaurant and grounds to enjoy. I have stayed here numerous time and it never fails in being a pleasant experience. The shuttle to the airport is very convenient and reliable. I feel like it is my home away from home.
