“Overnight for SFO Airport Departure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

This hotel is very organized for getting their guests to & from the SFO airport in a timely manner. It is the only hotel I use now when needing park n' fly. You can park your car for up to two weeks with no extra charges. The rooms are updated, comfortable beds, large screen TV's, free in room Wifi, complimentary breakfast or an on premise restaurant for meals. Book your reservation directly with the property for the best rate especially for park & fly.

Stayed overnight on way to SFO with a very early flight. Everyone was pleasant, helpful and went out of their way to make sure our needs were met . We left our car here during our week long trip and felt comfortable that all was secure. the shuttle drivers were courteous and helpful, especially at 3:30 am.

Fantastic location for those flying into or out of SF airport. Nice place for a night or two. Staff very helpful and organized. Pool was clean but deck area a little small. Dinner offered a great variety. Only problem was AC. If I were staying for more than one night I would have contacted the desk for another room.

I stayed at the El Rancho in June and July on a "Park and Fly," so I had a different room at each end of my trip. Both were very clean, well appointed, and quite comfortable. Every member of the staff that I dealt with was pleasant and helpful. I did this once before at this hotel and would do it again.

Needed a place to stay before a morning flight out of SFO. The El Rancho Inn seemed like a good choice based on others reviews, the shuttle service and general proximity to the airport.

I ended-up with a room towards the back of this property in the 500 building. The facility is older and the room itself was pretty small, but the bed was very comfortable and the TV was modern. I booked a shuttle ride for the morning and was told the van picks you up right outside your room. It's not a dedicated shuttle for just this hotel, but it doesn't make too many stops like you experience out in Las Vegas.

The breakfast area opens at 4:30AM, so just about anyone can grab something to eat. Most of the food is individually packaged making it easy to grab a few muffins, rolls or little bacon/egg sort of sandwiches and put them in your backpack to consume later. Food quality was basically as good as Starbucks.

The surrounding neighborhood is also pretty convenient. McDonalds is across the street and there's a Safeway and Walgreens about four blocks south. I also notice many Asian restaurants another street over from El Camino. Easy walk to just about anything you'd need for a night.

The front desk staff was courteous and helpful. The rooms were clean, though not large. The bed was good and the pillows soft! The shuttle ran on time and picked us up after dropping off our rental car and took us to the airport the next morning. The free breakfast was not much - a lot of prepackaged food. But they had plain oatmeal, bananas and coffee! So it was fine. I would not stay here for a long time or to see San Francisco.
