Best Western Plus El Rancho Inn
Ranked #1 of 7 Hotels in Millbrae
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed April 6, 2014

I've stayed at the Best Western El Rancho a couple of times and have always found it to be consistently an excellent deal. I use their stay, park and fly package which allows me to park my car for up to 14 days and get to and from the airport using their convenient shuttle. The rooms are spotless with up to date furnishings. The staff is friendly and very efficient. The shuttle drivers are prompt and courteous. I have stayed both the night before my flight and at other times driven to the hotel, parked my car and been shuttled to the airport and then stayed the night upon my return. Very nice to have a choice of staying at the front end or back end of the trip. I always look to see if I can find promo or discount codes to bring down the cost. On my latest trip I was able to use these codes and the cost of my package was $157 including all fees and taxes. This is about what it would cost to simply park your car at some of the offsite airport lots for 2 weeks!

Room Tip: Try for a room near the front of the property so you won't hear as much noise from passing train...

I highly recommend this place. It is immaculate, the staff is genuinely friendly and helpful, and despite its close proximity to the airport and train tracks, very quiet. The room seemed well insulated from noise

El Rancho Inn is well planned to serve park and fly guests. The older property has been well maintained. We were very pleased with condition of bathroom, comfortable bed and garden areas. Timely delivery and pickup to and from airport.

This is without a doubt the best place to stay, enjoy a wonderful dinner at their Terrace Café, leave your car and be shuttled to SFO. When you arrive home a really fast, easy pickup back to your car that is waiting for you in their parking lot. We will always stay here when we travel out of San Francisco. Staff and room are wonderful.

The room was clean, yet seemed dated. I was on the second floor and if buckled over an area by the bathroom. Either a train or other rapid transit goes by there somewhere and blows the horn at night. The breakfast that comes with the room is basic with danish, Oatmeal, micro mini egg sandwiches not bad an typical.

We appreciate your comments. We're sorry about the noise. We are almost complete with reconstructing our guestrooms in that area of the property with improved sound proof doors, windows, and exterior walls. We hope to be complete with sound proofing all our rooms by the end of the year.

horrible stay, rancher might as well be a city since you actually get a map to find your room. rooms are old, and outdated, better pay a few more dollars and stay somewhere much nicer. Front staff are good, but the shuttle drivers all demand to get paid $1/bag they move for you...i always tip, but can't stand it when it's demanded.

We are disappointed that we did not meet your expectations. I will review your comments with our shuttle staff - tips should be earned - not expected or requested. Thanks again for your feedback we will make the best effort to make improvements.

I always stay at El Rancho Best Western in Milbrae, Ca. when flying from San Francisco Airport. It is the most reasonable, nicely appointed, good restaurant and bar, terrific staff very good beds and linens, and has a very prompt shuttle service to the SFO airport! I have been staying at this hotel for over 15 years and it only gets better.
