I don't often stay at motels but decided to take a chance since it is so close to SFO. Everything was very clean, even the parking lot. The stay were polite and friendly. The room was clean and I found the bed to be fairly comfortable. They have a complimentary breakfast but I decided that I would try the restaurant.... More

This is our "go to" place to stay before a trip out of SFO. It's convenient, has a good restaurant/bar, gives a free departure snack and the beds are really comfy! You can stay either before, after or both, depending on your travel plans.

This was our second stay. The rooms are good as are the beds. The hotel has multiple mini buses, but when we were there they only had one in use. We had to wait almost an hour after calling to say we were at the airport to be picked up. They told us that they would be there in 15... More

A convenient shuttle to/from the airport and the availability of 14 day parking. Free computer/internet access in the office. The complimentary breakfast was varied, nutritious, warm and tasty. The lady in the breakfast room gracious and full of information, if asked. The crab cakes in the restaurant to die for! The front desk people helpful answering questions about local conveniences,...

This place feels like coming home! From the friendly smiles that greeted me when I checked in, the comfortable bed and amenities, the convenience of the shopping centers, and the knowing that food was available at 430 in the morning :) This was my first time here and the staff made me feel as if I was visiting with family....

I have never been dissatisfied with the Best Western Plus El Rancho Inn, Millbrae. The rooms are clean, modern and efficient. Love everything about this hotel. It's convenient to the SFO airport with their shuttle service.

This is where you stay when you have a 6 AM departure from SFO. The rooms have exactly what you need, they're quiet, clean, basic. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. You stumble out at 4 AM and a shuttle van meets you at the bottom of the stairs. You're at the airport terminal in 5 minutes. You... More

The elderly lady overseeing the breakfast was delightful. She gave a warm welcome and the snacks were good. She and breakfast were the best part of the one night stay. Got the day started very pleasantly. The decor of the restaurant and pool area was well done in mission-style. I would go there for a drink and hang out if... More
