“Great Park & Stay”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

We have stayed with them on several of our trips and have found them to be extremely efficient and service oriented. They have the concept of staying and parking your car down and make it very easy for the travel weary to mindlessly move through the process. Their Terrace restaurant is very good and not what I typically expect out of a Great Western Hotel.

This hotel is great value for money and the rooms were very comfortable and well kept. The restaurant served a yummy breakfast too. We had a room with 2 double beds. The bed was very comfortable. I would stay here again. Excellent.

Great value, with excellent service. Airport shuttle and parking services much appreciated. Early-risers breakfast snack the very, very best (and a wonderfully helpful staff person as well).

This is the third time I have stayed at Best Western El Rancho Inn. All three times I have left my car there and used their shuttle to get to San Francisco Airport. This is the first time that I have stayed at the end of my trip. Our flight got in about 11:30 pm and it was midnight by the time we got our luggage. The van came very quickly and we were off to the hotel. When we arrived, I was surprised when the driver went in and got our keys for us, took us to our rooms. Our car was already parked right across from the rooms. This took all of five minutes or less. They were very efficient. All of the people who work there are very helpful and kind. The rooms are comfortable and have been remodeled. It is a great place to use when traveling.

I have stayed here on a number of occassions when flying out of S.F. Great location near the airport and excellent airport shuttle service. I would say that the rooms need a complete renovation. They are getting old looking. I have struggled with the smell of the rooms on most of my times there. The non smoking rooms have been smoked in at one point or another, or the air in the rooms is really stale. The only reason I have stayed here is due to the room being booked by my company for a business purposes. Recommendation would be to try another hotel in the area that is newer. There are a lot of possibilites in the same area near the airport.

A month ago my wife and I had an unexpected overnight at SFO after a connecting flight cancellation. It was 10:30 p.m. on a very rainy night and virtually every property in the area was full. No availability shown on the common websites. Called the hotel and reached a great clerk who had a very nice king available at a price less than the websites. Shuttle service picked us up at 4:30 a.m. for first shuttle to SFO. Very clean, modern, compfortable and our room was exceptionally quiet. Excellent parking from the looks of the large lot and somewhat close to a BART Station.The Best Western Millbrae saved us from a night on the floor at SFO.

We stayed two nights—one night pre-departure and again upon our return (20 days later). Both rooms were clean and comfortable, although a bit dated. Although very near the airport, we noticed no aircraft noise. There is a restaurant on site and others nearby.

The stay & fly program is VERY well-organized. Before going to the airport, you fill out a form with date and flight number for your return. Upon return, the shuttle driver picks you up at the airport terminal--he already has your car key and will drop you off next to your parked vehicle. If you’ve reserved a room for your return date he will also hand you a room key—no need to “check in” at the front desk—and drop you in front of your room.

The stay & fly package includes 14 additional days of free parking. If you leave your vehicle for more than 14 days, it is $5 per day additional. If you reserve a post-return room, you get it at a discounted rate of about $90/night.

We will definitely use this hotel for future flights out of SFO>
