Excellent location for park-sleep-fly, near SFO International. Free shuttle service, very prompt. Good prices for overall service. Unfortunately, our long vacation got cut short in a week so we had to return much earlier. Came back to same hotel, and staff was very welcoming and went out of their way to help us. Manager Vicky ordered a wheelchair for my... More

This hotel has "park and fly" down to a science. In other words they don't mess around -- they know how to do it and that removes much of the worry from weary/wary travelers leaving from SFO. I've used their service several times and have no reason to consider anywhere else.

The Best Western El Rancho Inn in Millbrae, CA is a most charming place, even though it is quite large and has many rooms. It is built in the adobe style and only two stories high. The separate restaurant building and pool are conveniently centrally located, and a small, quiet, beautifully landscaped garden with fountain and benches for reading is... More

My husband had a very early flight out of SFO so we tried El Rancho on the advice of a friend and were very impressed! The property is super clean and well maintained. Staff very helpful and friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was the best we have ever had--by a long shot. Even had a good dinner in the on-site... More

Very convenient for SFO travelers. Shuttle was on time for drop off and return. Had a very good dinner in the restaurant with very good service at a reasonable price. The room was quiet and comfortable. I have stayed at this property many times over the years and always return.

Love to be able to leave my car while gone and have it parked in front of my room when the shuttle brings me back from the airport. The fact that I can leave my car in their care for free for 14 days and if I go over, a very minimum charge per day is a plus.

The shuttle arrangements are extremely reliable and the included charge for parking (for up to two weeks) is reasonable. Additional days of parking are available, Good for a quick sleep before flying or driving home.

Second stop on our California road trip. Stayed at 3 Best Westerns along the way. We stayed here because all the hotels in the city were very expensive. This was affordable, clean and convenient. About a 20 minute drive into the city (without traffic). The room was clean although a bit dated.. wifi was iffy. We stayed in the back... More

This Hotel was very accommodating for my family and I especially after a long over seas flight. Vehicle storage was excellent as car was at our room when we returned and dropped off to our hotel room door. Staff very professional and courteous.
