Although an older property with small rooms it seems recently remodeled so was quite comfy, got a good nights rest before a flight out of SFO. Organized front desk gives you paperwork for your dash etc, they move your car while you're away, and on your return, the bus from the airport drops you off in a parking lot by your car, went very smoothly. I was gone nearly two weeks so this was quite a deal.

Front desk staff is 5 star!
Great value if you are flying out of SFO and want to leave your car. It's not the Ritz but it is comfortable and clean for a one night stay either before or after your flight out of SFO. Why anyone would eat in Milbrae when you have the world class dining of SF a few miles away is beyond me. The quick grab and go breakfast at the el rancho is ok if you have a very early flight. If you ask me anything is better than the food at SFO which is mind boggling. Over all I highly recommend the El Rancho if you want a safe secure spot to park your car and spend a night before or after your flight.

We stayed here one night before a trip to Hawaii. Rooms were small and very cramped for our family of four, but this was no big deal for one night. We had a very early flight, and the 5AM continental breakfast was great.

The impressive part was the parking for a week and shuttle system to the airport. They have a great system! I was hesitant to do a park & fly at a hotel again because we had such a bad experience waiting for a shuttle at pickup in the past. However, their shuttle was very prompt and dropped us off right at our vehicle upon return. Highly recommend for a park & fly.

This is our last night for a vacation in California. We are flying out of SFO - the San Francisco airport in the morning. We checked into the Best Western Plus in Millbrae, and then dropped off our rental car at the SFO airport Hertz lot. The Best Western shuttle picked us up at the airport, brought us to the hotel, and now the shuttle will take us back to the airport in the morning for a flight back home. This hotel consists of a number of 2 story separate buildings. Our room is large, comfortable and well equipped with free WiFi and a refrigerator. The furnishings are older, but clean and comfortable. This hotel specializes in "Park and Fly" - you buy a room for a night and leave your car for a week or two. There is a cafe for drinks and food here, and an early morning breakfast will be waiting for us. The front desk staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. We'll stay here again on our next flight from the Bay Area.

I can't count the number of times I've stayed at the Best Western El Rancho Inn and Suites, either coming or going on a trip out of SFO. I like the fact that I can park my car safely and have it waiting for me on my return. Their shuttles are timely. Their staff is awesome and the rooms are great.
