What a wonderful place to stay to drop family off at SFO for an early morning flight. That's what we did to end the holidays bay-area visit sending them home. What we needed was a safe, comfortable location were we could share some laughs, get some sleep and escape the traffic in time to get back home in northern California....

Always great and convenience for our trips to visit family back east. Best place to stay overnight and to be able to leave the car to get back and forth to the airport. We have been doing this for many years as we need to use the SF airport. Unfortunately, we did have a minor problem with the car parking...

I am a picky person when it comes to hotels. My one BIG must have is no "bedspreads", just a bed cover that is washed every time the room is used. The top cover on these beds was very fluffy and comfy, down-like, but not so sure it is cleaned with each guest. If so, then the place is A+++++...

Great park/stay/fly program. Works smoothly. We didn't have to worry about anything. So close to SFO. Staff was friendly and helpful. It is amazing that this motel is 65 years old and looks this great. It is so clean!

Our experience at the El Rancho was really wonderful. From the last minute reservations, early check-in, professional, warm and cheerful staff (who wants to work on Christmas Day, much less, early morning?), to the room, which was great. Decor was nice, very clean (only one issue, but that was addressed with housekeeping and really not a big deal). We were...

I did not have a swell experience. I went there last week with my family for vacation,one of the housekeepers threw out my retainers, please be careful with placing your items or they might get thrown out. My parents and i called the front desk, they were of no help,they kept shirking the situation away, and were ill-mannered. if you...

We're sorry we did not meet your expectations. Our housekeeping staff take great care in not moving or disposing of items when cleaning occupied rooms. When we spoke at our Front Desk I did not feel I was ill-mannered but tried to explain it would be hard to pinpoint the responsibility for the lost item on our housekeeping staff.

Arrived on late flight. Easiest check-in ever. Very friendly staff. Free breakfast was less copious then other hotels but enough with choices of pastries, toast, bagel, boiled eggs, oatmeal, fruit and beverages. I would recommend.

We had a very early flight from SFO and we would have had to drive from two counties north of San Francisco, CA. Instead, we chose the El Rancho Inn located in Millbrae, CA which is very close to the airport. The hotel was very nice but the selling point was the 14 days free parking plus only $7 per...

We enjoy staying at El Rancho for the convenience of their parking while taking long term travels. The room was clean, the lounge offers great appetizers to have with cocktail. The Bartenderette was very friendly as were all employees.
