The Best Western El Rancho Inn never disappoints. The service is exceptional, the rooms are always clean and comfortable. The fact that they offer a shuttle to the airport and will keep your car is a benefit you do not often find. The lounge and the dining room are comfortable, welcoming and have great food and service. We keep returning...

We were flying out of SFO and this motel has a great service. Stay the night and can park your car here for a week at no added cost. The rooms are spacious. Not the most modern but very comfortable. The beds are great and comfortable. Offers a complimentary breakfast too. Great place to stay.

We were stranded at sfo. All the hotels were booked or not taking anymore reservations. They accommodated us and picked us up at the airport. It is a clean and cute inn. 7 minutes from the airport. Reasonably priced with comfortable beds! Coffee in rooms ! Thank you!

I was stuck for a night and needed something really close to the airport. Positives: *Nice clean room *Nice staff *Shuttle Negatives: *The complex is really large and you walk outside to get to your room. (It's like an old style motel) * It still has the old style of airconditioner in the window of the room (and mine had...

A lot of train noise. They don't accept room charges for there own restaurant. The bar onsite has the same problem. The food was very good. There clam chowder is very good. The menu is a little confusing they give you a dollar off for bar menu but the regular same menu is also for the bar.

Thank you for your review. We're pleased you enjoyed our food and especially our clam chowder served at our Terrace Cafe. We are working on resolving the issue that is preventing our guests from charging meals to their room.

Very clean nice rooms. The bed was so comfortable and having the shuttle was great. Highly recommend! We didn't have time to try the restaurant but it was very busy and looked nice. So happy to have found this hotel.

We chose the Park, sleep, and fly option. With the price we paid for the room it's what we would have paid for parking at SFO so it was definitely worth it to stay the night before we left for Hawaii. The staff all seemed to be very generous and helpful. We took the shuttle to SFO which was right...

All I needed was a shower and some sleep between flights, and this was a reasonably priced choice. I called them when I arrived at the airport, they told me exactly where to stand and that they would tell the shuttle driver to look for me, and the shuttle was there in five minutes. On a dark, rainy night, that...
