“Excellent choice for Park & Fly”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We stayed here one night before a trip to Hawaii. Rooms were small and very cramped for our family of four, but this was no big deal for one night. We had a very early flight, and the 5AM continental breakfast was great.

The impressive part was the parking for a week and shuttle system to the airport. They have a great system! I was hesitant to do a park & fly at a hotel again because we had such a bad experience waiting for a shuttle at pickup in the past. However, their shuttle was very prompt and dropped us off right at our vehicle upon return. Highly recommend for a park & fly.

Great hotel and.free car storage for two weeks. Make reservations early as it appears they are full every night. Nice free breakfast from 4am to 10am. Very efficient van service to the airport..Good restaurant on grounds.

This is our last night for a vacation in California. We are flying out of SFO - the San Francisco airport in the morning. We checked into the Best Western Plus in Millbrae, and then dropped off our rental car at the SFO airport Hertz lot. The Best Western shuttle picked us up at the airport, brought us to the hotel, and now the shuttle will take us back to the airport in the morning for a flight back home. This hotel consists of a number of 2 story separate buildings. Our room is large, comfortable and well equipped with free WiFi and a refrigerator. The furnishings are older, but clean and comfortable. This hotel specializes in "Park and Fly" - you buy a room for a night and leave your car for a week or two. There is a cafe for drinks and food here, and an early morning breakfast will be waiting for us. The front desk staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. We'll stay here again on our next flight from the Bay Area.

I can't count the number of times I've stayed at the Best Western El Rancho Inn and Suites, either coming or going on a trip out of SFO. I like the fact that I can park my car safely and have it waiting for me on my return. Their shuttles are timely. Their staff is awesome and the rooms are great.

We park and fly out of El Rancho once or twice a year. It is affordable, comfortable, convenient and friendly. We particularly like the California Mission style ambiance with lots of tile and beautifully kept grounds.

El Rancho is well set up to handle parking of your car for two weeks while you're away on a trip. You can actually park longer with just a $7/day fee for each additional day. They have a very well organized, dependable shuttle system to get you to the airport. Be sure to make all the arrangements when you check in so you'll be ready when they pick you up just outside your room door. The rooms are spacious and comfortable as well as clean and quiet. There's a restaurant right there at the motel or you can ask for recommendations of other close by ones. This is a good way to avoid driving in the middle of the night for your early morning airport departure. You can also tack on an extra day's stay at the end for a reasonable fee if you want.

Have stayed here before with no problems-don't know if it is under new management. We had no hot water in the shower-no offer of compensation from front desk!!!
The complimentary breakfast was horrible-they were "out" of bagels, the coffee was undrinkable and the staff could care less.
