“Stay at the El Rancho Inn in Millbrae, CA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

I have stayed at this hotel dozens of times and it is always a pleasure. The grounds are lovely, the rooms well maintained, the restaurant is very good as well as the bar. I recommend it for any stay and particularly for a park and fly our to SFO.

Room was nice and clean, beds were nice and soft. Had a lounge which was nice to relax in. Had some problems with getting points for the stay, in fact I never did get any for the stay. Great location, exactly where I needed to be to conduct my business.

We left our car here for nearly two weeks when we went on vacation on a park/sleep/fly arrangement. The hotel takes the car to a fenced lot and brings it back to the hotel just before your scheduled return. It worked out well. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable and there are lots of places to eat nearby on El Camino Real as well as the restaurant in the hotel.

Stayed here because we had an early morning flight out of San Fran. Room was good, but rooms all have outside doors, and we were right next to the office and business rooms, so a lot of foot traffic with people talking just outside our door and window.
We ate dinner in the lounge/bar because the prices were high in the dining room, and the dinner was just as good.
Front desk area had a computer and printer set up to print your boarding passes free of charge. I had trouble with the free wi-fi in our room, it had to be reset before it would work.
We used the shuttle to the airport and all went well.

Room Tip: Rooms closest to office are loud.

Have stayed here before. The wifi (at least for our most room) worked reliably and well. Unfortunately, the view out the room's back window of discarded hotel junk against the fence is off-putting. Likewise, on check-in, I was trying to explain how the phone at SFO airport for hotel pick-ups was problematic, but the check-in clerk was more interested in chatting with a colleague and was overheard saying "..and I don't like working here either". Breakfast was the same as usual, but the old lady who worked behind the counter and greeted everybody was not there. I get the feeling there has been a huge change in staffing - the "atmosphere" (which has been great previously) seemed completely different. Notwithstanding, the bed was comfortable and room was clean.

Courteous staff, a very well organized system of transportation to and fro the San Francisco airport, a large discount on your room to spend the night in your return, a very nice bar and restaurant. There is a computer for your use in the lobby. When you return, your car is parked for you in front of your room, having been safely stored elsewhere.

Room Tip: I wouldn't choose a second floor room again. You have to carry your luggage up the stairs. No...

Good hotel if you have flight delays in San Francisco but not at a good price for a quick place to sleep. Spent only 9 hours at the hotel and needed to pay full price. They should discount if you have a 10pm check in with a 7am check out. Didn't get to use any amenities or restaurants as everything closed early. Had to go across the street to McDonalds, which is not a preferred place to eat after spending 11hours delayed in an airport on a 12 hour airplane ride.
