This BW in Millbrae is one of the closest lodgings to SFO, and that's mostly why we chose it. It's very large, with possibly 700+ rooms spread over acres. Our room was small but mostly comfortable, except for a noisy heating/ventilating unit that kept waking us up as it cycled on and off. The onsite restaurant is nice, and other...

Great to leave our car and have an overnight accommodation before an early flight. Would like the continental breakfast to be a bit better and rates were pretty high compared to past experiences there.

We have stayed at the El Rancho Inn numerous times over the last 25+ years. The hotel is dated (3 star), but it is well maintained, clean, safe, and offers 24 hour airport transportation. Their Park N' Fly program is probably one of the best in the San Francisco airport area as you can park your vehicle for up to...

The decor in the lobby and our room was dated, but this was a very clean place. Thank you for that. We stayed here so we could make a quick trip to the airport in the morning, and we were able to get to the car rental return within 15 minutes with a minimum of fuss. There is a shuttle...

This is a perfectly fine restaurant for an overnight stay before or after a trip. They make arrangements to park your car for the trip. The motel is a typical Best Western, fully adequate, clean and quiet. The room includes a coffee machine and free wifi. This is a very busy place because of the convenience for travelers. The TV...

The rooms are spotless. We stayed there the night before our flight and the night when we returned. One room was in the newer section and quite small. The other was considerably larger. The service was excellent and the lobby includes a computer with dedicated printer for printing boarding passes. The Park and Fly process was also excellent. When we...

This is my second visit to this hotel. My flight was cancelled and I needed an overnight stay near SFO. The neighbourhood is not exactly upscale but the property itself is nicely kept, has a restaurant and pool on the grounds and is about 2 miles from SFO with easy access if you are driving. The hotel has an airport...
