My wife and I had booked online a room with long term parking at another hotel. Upon arriving found they no longer had parking. A single call last minute took us to the Best Wester El Rancho Inn. Not were they able to accommodate us with the room and parking but at the same cost. Upon arriving we remembered we... More

Whenever we fly out of San Francisco we stay at the El Rancho and use the "Park and Fly" room option. We have done it several times and never been disappointed. Their system is efficient and secure. At check-in we scheduled our departure time for the shuttle to the airport for the next morning. After spending the night in a... More

This is a very nice hotel. Conveniently located to major highways and the airport. Not far from downtown SF and the major attractions. Would like to see some sort of breakfast included other than the continental breakfast on check out day. Reasonable price for the area.

We had a nice stay here. There are SO many places to shop and eat nearby. The hotel staff was friendly, patient and accommodating. The stay here made our trip much less stressful than I was anticipating, that made it more worthwhile.

We recently discovered this Park, Sleep, and Fly (PSF) location in Millbrae, which provides this service for San Francisco's International Airport (SFO). First off, let me explain that this hotel is NOT comparable to such famous hotel brands such as the Mark Hopkins, The Westin, etc. However, as a PSF, it is top notch. The rooms are VERY roomy (at...

We stayed there the night before our flight to Rome and the night of our return. Great value -- price includes 14 days of parking, 24-hour shuttle to SFO, discount on return night and an early-bird breakfast prior to departure for SFO. Shuttle was really quick picking us up at SFO, car and room keys were ready upon arrival. The... More

Overall a great experience, we were in room 534 at the back of the property. Pros: clean & spacious modern room with a refrigerator, great location (5-mins to airport or BART) with many restaurants nearby, low price, friendly staff, nice bar, nice looking pool and hot-tub (didn't use them), 24-hr shuttle service to airport Cons: exterior needs maintenance in a...

I stayed here after a long overseas trip abroad waiting for next day flight. The shuttle service was quick and reliable, leaves every 1/2 hour and will pick you up in front of your room! The room was average, my room was a bit overrun, with rusty fixtures, but the bed was comfortable and the TV was a nice flatscreen... More

The room was dirty with large stains on the carpet and furniture. The bathroom had received only a cursory cleaning upon the last check out. Old food was left in the refrigerator. Outside of the TV the decor was old and dated.

Booked here based on Tripadvisor reviews, as we were arriving into SFO late at night. We found it very reasonably priced, rooms were small, but adequate, clean and well maintained. We were in 701, in the rear of the property, so we were treated to Road and railroad noise. But it was very quiet after 11PM until early the next... More
