Beautiful exterior campus with pleasant seating and good bar. Breakfast Joe's Scramble not so good. The ground beef had a rank smell to it. Rooms were fine. I overnighted 2 nights, before and after my trip for the sake of parking. They did very well with this and the reception staff were friendly and professional..

Best Place to stay and leave your car. Shuttles to SFO are always on time and I never have to worry about drop off or pickup times and I know my car is safe. I have use this hotel for year for my car storage. Love it.

We were on an extended vacation and spent three nights here while visiting San Francisco. We got one of only a couple of suites -- 2 BR, a nice fully equipped kitchen, a large dining area, and a very large living room. Clean, comfortable, and given the proximity to the airport and a rail line, surprisingly quiet. The price was very competitive given that we got much more for our money than we would at any traditional hotel. Highly recommended for families traveling with children.

Room Tip: Ask for the suite specifically, they have a limited number.

The Best Western Millbrae is located about a mile from SFO with convenient shuttle service to and from the airport. I have used their Park and Fly many times to good effect over the past few years. They will carefully store your car off site. When I return after a week the car is dusty, but undamaged. The room is clean and comfortable with good wifi. The restaurant has good food The bar lounge will make a good martini and has a TV. They could use DirecTV so I could see the NFL channel's Thursday Night Football. Overall, an excellent alternative to using SFO long term parking.

The El Rancho Inn is truly an innovative solution to getting to SFO from regions outside the Bay Area with minimal hassle. They've taken an old 1960's era motor inn and converted it to a transit entry point. For a very reasonable price, you get a very clean, comfortable, modern room, with breakfast, free transit to SFO, and up to 14 days of free parking. The shuttle service is efficient and comfortable. Upon return, the driver drives you to your car and unloads your luggage for you right at your trunk. This beats driving two hours at 3 am to catch a 7 am flight out of SFO.
