Great hotel, very close to airport. I was highly impressed that they had breakfast extra early (starting at 4:30am) for the early am flights. Our check in clerk was great and offered shuttle service. We opted to just turn in rental the am of our flight and that was fine. Hotel is an older one, but well maintained. Comfy beds...

I stay here the night before leaving on an early flight from SFO. The rooms are comfortable, there are decent restaurants nearby, and the airport shuttle service is good (every 30 minutes, and on -time). They also serve a good breakfast (starting at 5 or 5:30 AM). Shuttle time to SFO is less than 15 minutes, and the drivers are...

We stayed at this hotel since it was close to the San Francisco airport. The rooms were very clean, the bed and linens were comfortable and the service was outstanding. The bathrooms are a little dated, but the management has done a good job keeping them fresh.

We were three of us on a business trip. Our travel agent booked us into this Best Western Plus hotel, based upon the experience of one of our group, who promised us that if there is a "Plus" appended to the "Best Western" name, it will be great......Well, it wasn't.... We still don't understand why it has a "Plus" rating....

My wife and I have been staying at this hotel for over 20 years. Love it's location since it is so close to the airport. You are just minutes from downtown San Francisco. The prices are much more reasonable than the hotels in San Francisco. We have usually stayed in the handicap accessible rooms and they are quite comfortable. The...

Surprisingly nice motel – I usually don’t expect as much from the Best Western name. Looks newly renovated. Clean and well appointed. Super comfy bed with a nice collection of pillows. There was an apartment-sized fridge in the room which made it easy to stock some breakfast items to inhale before a 4am trip to the airport. The TV wasn’t...

Needed a place close to the airport but this was nicer than we expected for the price. Parking lot was well lit and busy with people coming and going. This is an old style motor inn. No elevator but it is under construction. We stayed on the backside main floor so quite a hike but quiet. Grounds were well cared...

This is an older hotel that has been updated and is close to the SFO airport. We chose the hotel based on positive reviews and the park and fly feature. We left the car for three weeks and then stayed one night on our return. Parking was included in the room for the first two weeks and then there was...

I was disappointed to find out that this was an outside entry hotel. Well updated, but still showed its age. What really burned me is that the airport shuttle runs only every 30 minutes. I must have just missed one, and I watched 5 Marriott and many multiple of other hotel busses come and go waiting for the El Rancho...

The room was a bit small but had everything we needed. Decorated very nicely, and the bed was great. The shuttle was on time both ways to the airport, and the restaurant on the premises was very, very good. Also, the breakfast included in the price was fantastic, not your typical continental breakfast. I would highly recommend trying them out....
