We always stay at the El Rancho when flying out of SFO. We have stayed here for years and have always been pleased with our rooms and service. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. Staying at the El Rancho is a nice way to start our trips.

We have used Best Western previously and the reason we selected Best Western again. However, there was a train crossing below our room and trains ran all night and blew their "horn" at the crossing throughout the night.

We have used this hotel several times for long vacations when we leave via SFO. It is convenient, and has an acceptable free breakfast. If you want a better breakfast, you can use the restaurant at the hotel. Noise from CalTrain sometimes wakes you.

My wife and I stayed three nights in the BW Plus after we flew in to the SFO Airport. Our first impression was good. The staff was friendly and the check in process was easily done.

The rooms had an average size but were clean beyond any complaints.

The furnishing though was old and partly pretty much run down. Having in mind that this isn't any cheap hotel but a BW Plus we were disappointed. In addition there was no safe in the room.

Unfortunate there are railway tracks just behind the hotel. The trains rushing past were on the edge to being annoying.

The hotel was ok and would have been sufficient for a night long stay. But for three nights it hasn't been worth what we payed.

Room Tip: Not too far back, because of the railway tracks...

Excellent location for park-sleep-fly, near SFO International. Free shuttle service, very prompt. Good prices for overall service. Unfortunately, our long vacation got cut short in a week so we had to return much earlier. Came back to same hotel, and staff was very welcoming and went out of their way to help us. Manager Vicky ordered a wheelchair for my hubby and staff member Omar, was at our room to help with anything. Delicious turkey sandwiches from restaurant.

This hotel has "park and fly" down to a science. In other words they don't mess around -- they know how to do it and that removes much of the worry from weary/wary travelers leaving from SFO. I've used their service several times and have no reason to consider anywhere else.
