“great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

wonderful place to stay close to the airport. Best shuttle service ever. Clean, friendly service. Well prepared and we were well taken care of both coming and going. I would highly recommend the hotel for park and fly service. We will be staying there again and have already booked our room.

I always stay at El Rancho when I visit San Francisco. The staff is outstanding, the rooms are clean and comfortable. They have a great breakfast that is included. The location for us is great, close to restaurants, freeway, shopping and the airport. They also provide free airport shuttle.

We like this hotel & location very much. Good rooms, great staff, easy way to get to and from SF Airport. Restaurant is good as well as many other good restaurants near bye. One of our favorites is Kuletos in Burlingame.

Really clean and tidy hotel with friendly helpful staff. Complimentary breakfast was ok. Not alot of decent restaurants in the area but we ate in San Francisco everyday. Hotel is just a 15minute walk from the BART station which goes straight to San Francisco, $9 each person and about 30 minute trip.

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.
