Redondo Beach, California
Reviewed 25 May 2016

The hotel was a very good value. The room was comfortable and clean. The property is very large with 7 buildings of rooms and a very large parking lot. They offer a park and fly option because they are within 2 miles of SFO but we didn't use this feature. They are also within a mile of the Millbrae Bart...

The room, staff, price and amenities were excellent for what we were looking for. Right outside SF, nearby airport so convenient. Prices excellent considering SF. Nice 15 minute walk to BART or CalTrain or you can use their shuttle to SFO and take BART from there. Vicky and Lariana, especially Vicky, were excellent in providing information, directions and help in...

El Rancho Inn has the best sleep & fly program in the SFO area; as well as large, comfortable rooms, a nice bar and well stocked complimentary serve-yourself breakfast. Quick check-in and out, prompt airport pick-up and car return.

We were transiting San Francisco and were looking for a comfortable and conveniently located hotel around the SFO airport. Best Western El Rancho met all our expectations and the front office staff were friendly and very helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to our friends.

I have stayed here several times and the service and quality, although not consistent, has been worth the stay. The rooms are very different even when booking the same class. This past stay had the smallest bathroom I think I've ever had at a Best Western. The room was clean and staff is friendly. Breakfast is either a Continental snack...

Very close to airport and car rental return, place needs some TLC, would have liked to stay another day, not cheap but you get what you pay for. Free breakfast was OK should have been better. Parking was a little tight but construction / renovation was going on.

My accommodations, services and the staff at the hotel could not have been better or easier. It was great to have a restaurant on-site. The room was quiet, clean, roomy and comfortable. I did not expect an early breakfast to have so much variety available. I felt confident with the conveniences of the transport to the airport and the organized...

Best place to stay if you have a morning flight out of SFO. Rooms, service and proximity to SFO make it a no brainier. The morning breakfast take away is a winner. It is the only place we stay before going home when visiting San Francisco.
