This hotel was very convenient and clean. We had not been there in many years and were impressed by how well maintained it was, inside and out. Friends reminded us to give it a try and we were very satisfied. It was great to have overnight parking, airport shuttle and early morning breakfast provided. It made our trip to the... More

Nicely kept/renovated old property. Good restaurant/lounge on site and good service from staff. A little disappointed that there was no HD TV service available in room (which I expected at this price point). All in all, the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. A good experience, would stay again.

I attended a Spiritual Retreat with several alumnae from my school. We were a group of at least 45 attendees and must have reserved more than a dozen room. The rooms had 2 queen beds each and could accommodate 4 persons. The beds and pillows were so comfortable that I was so rested the following day. Unfortunately the tub and... More

The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Rooms are very clean and the motel is centrally located making it easy to get to different places. The departure snack is enough to be a breakfast which saves you from having to dine out,

Stayed at this hotel before flying to TX. Great food and easy shuttle to SFO and pick up on return. The cost to leave our car was the best price. We don't fly very often so staying at the hotel made it a lot simpler.

I have never been disappointed by my stays at the El Rancho Inn & Suites in Millbrae every time I visit San Francisco. Highly recommended due to the close proximity of many amenities (i.e. BART/public transportation, St. Dunstan Catholic Church, various eateries/restaurants, the shopping center which also includes a Safeway). I definitely plan to come back here in the near... More

We needed a place close to the airport and value for the money. We enjoyed our one night stay, the room was very comfortable, wi-fi easy to use and breakfast was great for a type-2 diabetic. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it to all our friends.

The room was spacious, nicely decorated, and comfortable. The bed and other amenities were excellent. The shower was warm and refreshing. The free shuttle was on time. The free breakfast was good except that it has no non-fat milk. The fact that breakfast was available early was good because we had an early flight from San Francisco. This hotel is... More

We were stopping over after flying from the UK with a flight to Maui the next day. It's just a short journey from the airport. The rooms are clean and with good facilities. Beds are large and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant on site and whilst nothing special it was perfectly adequate after a long flight. We had to... More

We stayed here for one night prior to flying from San Francisco Airport. Everything was perfect for our stay. The staff were very helpful regarding directions to the SFO Car rental drop off and how to access the airport from there. They offer a shuttle bus to the airport bus as we had a car to drop off and an... More
