We live several hours north of San Francisco and frequently make the drive to fly out of that airport, and we always stay at El Rancho. It is consistently well-maintained, clean, convenient, and hospitable. The bar and restaurant are excellent, and the 24-hour shuttle service completely dependable. We have stayed here for years, and will continue to make this our... More

did the park and fly- excellent service and reasonable rate. The shuttle pickes you up at your door and drops you off at your car at the end of your flight. Rooms are clean and nice- staff knowledgeable and friendly.

We stayed overnight here before a 6:45 a.m. flight from SFO. Shuttle was great. So much better than driving in and paying to park the car at the airport or other sites. Also so much better than having someone driving us to the airport and having to return later to pick us up. The extra sleep we were able to... More

BEST WESTERN PLUS El Rancho Inn we just love this place. Close to SFO airport close to BART and CAL Train. We use their park and ride package. They take us to and pick us up at the airport. If you have an early flight they have a early breakfast snack for you it's wonderful. We stay here 2 or... More

We have stayed at the El Rancho Motel multiple times when we have early morning flights. We've parked there and the service retrieving our car has been timely and efficient. The shuttles have always been right there coming and going to the airport with excellent service. The staff is friendly, courteous and efficient and we will definitely stay there again.

This hotel is a good place to stay prior to cruising. Free shuttle to and from the airport. Very Comfortable, clean, quiet updated rooms, good complimentary breakfast. It is a very large facility and if you don't have a car, you may be hauling your suitcases a long ways. We arrived at night and got completely lost in trying to... More

Hotel is average quality. Rooms are adequate and clean but no more. Breakfast is free and very basic. I used points for stay. If on a budget, you can probably get better price without dropping much in quality. About 15 minute walk to BART station. Shuttle to airport, but leaves every half hour. Had to wait about 50 minutes at... More

Thank you for your comments. We apologize that you had to wait fifty minutes for our shuttle. Our expectation is no longer than thirty minutes. I will review this with our shuttle staff. We hope you will consider staying with us the next time you are staying in the area. More

Pretty simple and easy access to get around as far as various modes of transportation (i.e. car, public transit such as SamTrans and BART -- there's a BART station in Millbrae that's only a 10-15 minute walk to and from hotel). Plus nearby shopping center and grocery store (Safeway) within easy walking distance.

We stayed one night here before leaving on a cruise. The checkin was quick and professional. We were leaving our car here for a week and the check in clerk explained everything we needed to know about leaving the car and picking it up at the end of our cruise. The room was very nice with a great bed. The... More

The rooms are small but also very comfortable and clean. All the amenities, including a small refrigerator and coffee maker are provided. Front desk personnel were very pleasant and helpful. Free continental breakfast was a nice touch. Look for the pastries from a local bakery on the bar, they are excellent! Also, there are usually various kinds of mini quiches.... More
