Waikiki, Hawaii
Reviewed 29 March 2016

Enjoyed my one night stay and would return on future trips. Best Western provided free airport shuttle, free Wifi, and a free continental breakfast. The staff was super helpful and courteous. The only drawback could be the sound of the Bart could be heard from my room, but did not bother me.

I am almost afraid to say how much we love this property! If the word gets out it will be hard to make reservations. They do an awesome job of hotel, airport shuttle, breakfast, park and fly options. We use them every time we fly from SFO!

Reviewed 27 March 2016

If you are traveling to/from SFO, and need a one night stop over, this is a very good choice. They will keep you car while away (for a week or more), and provide you with shuttle service to the airport. We have used this service several times with great results. This motel is family owned (60+ years), and they have...

The El Rancho is excellent for those who need to leave a car while traveling. We also stay at this property if we are just visiting in the Bay Area. The van picks up passengers frequently at the SFO. A breakfast is served for those leaving too learly for the dining room service. It is excellent.

Lakeport, California
Reviewed 23 March 2016

We stay at the El Rancho every time we fly out of SFO. The shuttle is very convenient and the parking is great. We have always been happy with the light breakfast snack and the shuttle timing. We have stayed before our early morning flight or on the return flight if we get in late.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Reviewed 20 March 2016

People at the front desk are very nice and our room was clean enough, but this is a traditional/old two-story motel. Reading others' reviews and glancing at the photo gave me the idea it was a different property. It is very close to SFO, though.

Still is a great bargain for Sleep and Fly! Pleasant staff in Reception and Breakfast! Rooms in back are quiet and we requested first floor since our luggage was heavy and they still do not have elevators.

Really enjoyed staying at the El Rancho. It was raining way harder than it does in Oregon and we didn't have to go far for dinner; Terrace Cafe was great! Also fun being at a hotel in a city of my younger years. The schools in which I worked often held their luncheons there. Park 'n Fly was the best...

The cost was $100 less than nearest competitor for 14 days of parking plus overnight stay. 45 minute wait for shuttle when we returned was a little long, but driver was courteous and helpful. Definitely will consider staying here again.
