We stayed in this hotel as our last night before flying out of the SFO. This turned out to be a very pleasant place and very convenient to the airport. The room was very spacious and ample parking was there. We did not use any restaurant facility so dont know about it.

private party on lower level of restaurant without doors; could hear entire microphoned in presentation of poor jokes, laughter and applause throughout restaurant. Ruined our expectation of a quiet dinner after a long day of travel. Reserved king bed room;was sent to handicapped room with one queen one single.

My wife and i stayed here for 3 nights. Check in was efficient and smooth. Receptionists very helpful. Our room was on the second floor and was a little haven. Large bedroom, all smelt clean and new, vanity area and small but sufficient bathroom. We were concerned when we heard a train's horn going off loudly and thought we'd made... More

The El Rancho Inn offers an option to leave your vehicle parked there while you are on vacation. It was a great shuttle ride to the airport and back. Loved the cost savings of not having to park at the airport. Our stay at the hotel was pleasant but short.

This is a decent motel near SFO. The room is clean and quiet. Friendly & helpful staff. The free breakfast was the usual coffee, juice, toast, oatmeal,etc. This is also a Park & Fly. I'd stay here on August again. Two weeks of offsite parking while we're away. Our room was a little over $200 with tax.

This place is a well oiled machine. They get you in quick, and politely. They have FOUR shuttle vans running 24/7. Restaurant is very good, and the breakfast buffet starts at 430 for us early travelers. Lots of parking. Rooms were well laid out and clean. All in all, a very good place.

When we have an early departure from SFO we enjoy staying here. Beer and Dinner at Fiddler's Green just down the street, relaxed nights sleep and included breakfast. Beats waking up several times at home being worried about early departure, traffic etc. :-)

When I originally booked, I was nervous that this hotel is so far away from downtown San Francisco (it's about 35-50 min, depending on traffic). However, once we were there and driving each day, we were thankful to be a bit out of the way. We found many areas of San Francisco to be dirty and a bit shady. Even... More

I booked this hotel through Priceline and needed to have a room with 2 beds. One of the things that irritates me to no end about hotels booked on Priceline is calling the hotel and making a request. I invariably get the response, " Oh, you booked on Priceline do we can't (insert request here)." Why not? Why am I... More

We have stayed at this hotel off and on over the years. It has the same consistent high quality. There is always something that has been updated in the room. The free continental breakfast includes some egg-dish options which they will warm for you. The staff is extremely friendly. The shuttle to the airport is very reliable. This is our... More
