The room was clean, comfortable and had the basic amenities such as shampoo, lotion, coffee, Wi-Fi, etc. The layout of the property was resort like, with multiple building making up...

Very nice hotel - reasonable rates - good bar and food. Leave your car for up to 2 weeks with no additional charge. They will take charge of your car and take you to and from the airport. The car type reservation must be made in advance I believe.

We had a great stay at Best Western Plus El Rancho. The accommodations are nothing fancy but perfect for the night before a flight. We also had drinks at the bar and watched the Warriors game. The shuttle to SFO is very efficient and easy!

My daughter and I were on our last night of our road trip, driving a red mustang convertible up the coast of California. My only stipulation was that on the last night of the trip, I wanted to be close to the airport. I didn't want to have to hassle with traffic the next morning, worried that we would miss...

Absolutely nothing wrong with this place for a quick and short stay in the area. Very pleased with what we paid for and what we got and, of course, what we expected. Service was great, room was clean. The only room for improvement was the clarity of the TV.

I attempted to book this place as I was traveling out of SFO and it offered Park and Ride. I booked well in advance and then about 2 days before departure I received an email from Best Western offering a special on their Park/Ride/Breakfast. I proceeded to book this for a total of $130. which was far less than my...

Perfect location for all the events we attended in the Bay area. Very close to airport and transit. The staff went out of there way to help us. The room was large and comfortable and included a kitchenette. Experienced good quiet sleep considering the location. Will definitely consider staying here again. Express breakfast very good and only visited Terrace restaurant...

Love this place! We fly out of SFO and leave our car with the folks at El Rancho. On our return, when we are totally jetlagged and loopy (11 flight from Johannesburg to London, 8 hour layover, 10 hour flight to SFO) it is HEAVEN to be picked up by the shuttle and delivered STRAIGHT to our room. Our car...
