Shuttle was really quick. Came in less than 10 minutes from me calling from the airport. Had a decent breakfast. My only disappointment was not being able to do a lunch there. I wanted to do a quick lunch before my flight but the restaurant does not open for lunch.

Wherever I travel I always try to stay at a BW hotel as they are always of great quality and good value

I am very pleased with this particular hotel. I still do not 100% understand what makes a BW hotel Plus/Premier/Signature etc as sometimes there is hardly any difference

The El Rancho is a Signature collection



Check in is quick, easy, very friendly staff

Parking is free. The rooms are great, usual amenities. I had a very good sleep, the bed was awesome



Breakfast is great as usual, but no waffles!?



SFO is around the corner and the hotel offers a 24/7 shuttle which is great



I will stay again

Very nice hotel, the cleaning staff respected my privacy the entire stay, and the room was wonderful!

Want to sleep on a cloud? That is what the beds here are like, the pillows.. Oh the pillows..

Showers have good pressure and not once did I run out of hot water.

Everything was clean and well kept, the A/C was easily sufficient for the room size.

The only issue was a side window in the bathroom sun room was stuck open meaning th bathroom vented the cool inside air and the noise of outside bled through a lot more.

Overall a very nice stay!

Room clean and bed very comfortable. Shuttle service is great. Only problem was my shower had low low water pressure-not sure if just my building or all we were in building 100.

El Rancho Best Western provides an outstanding service to travelers who need a place to say before flying out and a safe place to leave their vehicle. The staff is very professional, quite friendly, and on the several times we have used the sleep/park & fly service we have never had a single glitch arise. It has an excellent restaurant, clean rooms, and it's right across the street from SFO.

We chose this hotel for the park and fly option. The hotel and rooms are old but clean and well kept. Service was good. Breakfast buffet was real busy. There's a lot of rooms here so the breakfast room can get crowded. Quite area with tons of good restaurants and shopping. One thing I have figured out is you get to test drive your trip supplies and suitcase packing while still in America. So you quickly figure out what you forgot or need. This morning were heading to Walgreens to pick up a few items we forgot. This I believe is a huge plus to this park and fly.

We recommend this Best Western El Rancho Hotel.

It was beautiful, very clean, spacious, and the staff were both helpful and personable. They made me feel comfortable and welcome after a very long drive to be on the area for my neurology appointment which greatly decreased my stress. Thank you.

Such a nice place to stay. Great location to stay, park and fly. Close to airport. Vicky was so helpful at our check-in. So friendly and engaging. She told us about a couple places to eat dinner and everything about parking our car while we're gone. She even set up a ride to the airport the next morning. Thanks for all you did for us. We will stay here again. Room was comfortable and slept well.

I was early so they were busy but they still did the little extra to see if there was a room available. Just a note if you are planning to come early than the 1500 check in time you might have to wait. The room was very nice and spacious and there was a spa bathtub in the room. The breakfast was the usual things you expect and was delicious. Would recommend it for a stay again.

Friendly service and very clean. I actually liked the complementary toiletries. The cable TV could have been better though.

Breakfast was a bag containing an apple, bottled water, a warm egg product, a muffin and some kind of oatmeal. Due to food allergies, we were down to an apple and water.

Room was fine. Second bed being in it's own room was nice. Windows don't open. Close to the airport. Call the hotel directly for park n fly.

All of the staff was very accommodating, easy to contact, and friendly. We really appreciated their care and concern in making sure that we had a comfortable room for our family. Anna was amazing, and we felt welcomed from the moment we checked in. Parking was free and convenient to the rooms, and any extra towels or requests from the front desk were always taken care of promptly.

Not a bad place but sort of don't understand all of the rave reviews. Rooms seem clean but definitely very dated and I would describe as "musty." Was able to park right outside my room which is a plus. Can't comment on breakfast since we departed for the airport too early. A little further from airport than I anticipated, 10+ minute drive to rental car return.

Would give 4.5 if I could for the current very reasonable price. Rooms very clean. Staff very nice. A basic hotel/motel to stay for a day or two close to the airport. Nothing to complain about basic amenities. Location is about 30 min away from the city via car/uber, more than an hour taking public transport. Couple of restaurants close by. I know they might be bound by COVID regulations but there were a couple of things that did not really work and that we did not expect to encounter in spring 2022. Restaurant and airport shuttle not operating. The most minimalistic breakfast and vending machines not working.

It's close to the airport, about $20 for a taxi or Uber, lots within walking distance to eat. Rooms are clean and have everything we need. Staff is very accommodating and nice.

This part of the hotel is aces there is a kitchen-ette-ish has a microwave, sink, and mini-fridge with a table and chairs for a sit down type of situation. There's a huge living room space with a pullout sofa and sofa-chair with a bedroom with two queen sized beds a family of 6 can enjoy comfort and functionality! No problems!

I've been staying here for decades and had both good and bad experiences. With covid-19 no shuttles or room service. Room was decent & $15 a day for car park and fly

Travel from GA for a 6night 7day stay enjoyed every min of this stay. Full breakfast was a plus. Kids enjoyed Heated pool & hot tub everyday. In the beginning my family had personal issues which cause a dispute. This hotel was willing to work with us so we wouldn't get kicked out on out 1st night to continue our vacation. I would definitely stay at this location again.

Nice place to stay, overall. We had no troubles and we stayed for 2 nights. Bathrooms were just small and there were ants in our bathroom. But front desk staff were so nice.

Check in was super fast and staff was very friendly. Josette in particular was wonderful. We were leaving early around 4:30am to go to the airport. She asked if we needed shuttle service but we had our own rental car to return. We asked if they had breakfast to go and she presented a brown paper bag with 2 apples, 2 waters, and 2 granola bars. The hotel is very large and has a spanish Acapulco feel to it. It's a very good hotel for the price, quiet location even though it is located on El Camino Real. Full sized closet, comfy bed. Mini fridge, tiled bathrooms. I asked for an extra blanket and maintenance zoomed across the parking lot at 9pm in his golf cart and placed it in the room before we even got there! He was kind and friendly and courteous.

The service here is impeccable (coming from a person who has also worked for years in upscale hotels in the bay area, take it from me).

We didn't try the pool since it was February and we had to be up early.

I didn't take any pics of the bed since there are many pics already online.

I was impressed with the staff here! They were so accommodating and friendly. The room was clean (minus a couple stains on the carpet) the location is ideal, they're right by the 101, a ton of places to eat as well as a cute little town that you can walk around and feel comfortable. I'm from the east coast and have been to Cali a handful of times and I can say that without a doubt this was my favorite trip thus far. Great hotel, great people. I would return in a heartbeat

My boyfriends surprise V day evening for me was a nice time. I didn't want the stay to end. The restaurant was pricey but the food was good and the free breakfast in the AM made up for the dinners price.

This is our second time staying here and I must say that it's a nice cozy spot. The breakfast selection is wonderful plus it's close to the airport and quiet. For the price it's clean and accommodating.

Nice suite, clean and comfortable. Appreciated that the complimentary breakfast included hot food options.

Some have mentioned the noise from the train, In building 2, I never heard a peep but a family member in building 3 did hear and found it annoying.

Bed was comfy and the location was convenient and staff were pleasant and courteous.

Typical budget inn. Location may not be *prime* for people wanting to visit the downtown, but it is not advertised as such so it is no way misleading. In a really good way,

it is extremely close to airport but unfortunately their shuttle service isn’t working due to panorama

Also due to pandora the cafe is closed so the advertised “free breakfast” is a grab and go bag consisting of water bottle, apple, egg bite & muffin. Oatmeal optional. I am grateful they offer this, but when I made the reservation the breakfast was listed as continental. However, I understand their adjustments.



Comfortable walking distance to Trader Joe’s, Safeway, Starbucks and other shops in nearby plaza. Overall, “El Camino Real” is the Main Street in Millbrae. About a 20 minute walk is the Cal-Train station which can take you directly to downtown San Francisco (King st & 4th street).



Although my experience would be deemed as passable and nothing concerning occurred to stop me from returning to this hotel, I would not be opposed to trying other hotels in the area next time.

The hotel was very clean, roomy and I enjoyed my stay. As far as eating goes. Unless you take a taxi or whatever, about all you can find within walking distance are a lot of oriental food restaurants. Had to walk about 8 blocks to find something.

Easy way to make sure you have long term parking and get to the airport on time. Was gone for two weeks. When we returned vehicle was covered with sticky brown substance (soda?) but was intact. Breakfast was fair. Upon return to the airport the hotel phone was down so couldn't call for pickup, had to wait until shuttle arrived- not something you're happy about after traveling 30 hours.

Nice place and big rooms with bargain price in the area. Also lots of space for parking. However, depending on who works at the lobby, you might experience not-so-great staff attitude

Wasn't here but 1 night, but when I come back to this area, I plan to stay here again.



Very accommodating to needs. With a smile and the only person working the desk, some in line were getting impatient, but that is their problem. The line moved quickly.



Disappointed the shuttle and restaurant were closed, but that is due to the mandate by the governor, not them.



Room was clean. Bed comfy. All amenities otherwise in room were in working condition.

She is attentive and really efficient and knowledgeable of her work. It is very pleasant to see her greeting us after a long trip.

I like this hotel I just checked in but it has everything I like!!! Free parking and if A family member visits they don't have to pay for parking! I like outside rooms so u can go right out to your vehicle and not travel thru the whole hotel and lobby it's right outside! Nice friendly staff and places close by to visit. This is the best hotel I found in California so far and definitely will be back!!! It's not a high end hotel u can tell by the price but definitely not dangerous or full or druggies

Very helpful staff. Reasonably comfortable bed and some nice amenities for the price - breakfast buffet in addition to in room coffee/tea, soaps, mini-fridge to store any leftovers or drinks you want to keep in the room (although they have what looks like a good bar on site too), and decent towels. Nice hot water with good pressure.

I've always had Superior service at this Hotel, Everyone is very attentive and the rooms are warm and comfortable, They use good soaps and shampoo and have a breakfast station room where you are served a bag with a fresh egg puff from a bakery delivered fresh every morning a fresh piece of fruit a bottle of water and juice and a fresh cup of coffee a danish as well as a bowl of oatmeal if you request it all included as part of the room booking at no extra cost. As someone who was raised in the hospitality industry to a family who owned restaurants I give this place 5 Stars , I am specifically pleased with Vicky the hotels director of sales who made a point to made sure everything was perfectly accommodating. She is in my opinion the biggest asset to this historical Spanish style resort.

This hotel feels like an old motor lodge from the 40s or 50s, back in the day when motels were built with beauty because we were all excited about the freedom our cars brought. Unfortunately, most of these "motor hotels" are run down and in bad shape these days, not somewhere you would want to stay. But, the El Rancho is well maintained and beautiful. The rooms are clean, the service is great and the price was very reasonable. Staying at the El Rancho makes you feel as if you are going into the past and can forget the stress of today. I especially liked the retro travel posters in the rooms to finish the touch. We hope to come again.

Great value for what you get. From the front desk to the complimentary breakfast everyone was very friendly and provided excellent service. Vehicle was stored there for 2 weeks and we felt very safe. We would definitely stay here whenever traveling from San Francisco airport.

Nice hotel with shuttle service to San Francisco airport. You can hear the planes but is not annoying. Rooms are clean and big enough.



Breakfast is good and sufficient but plates and cutlery are plastic disposals, but many people just leave the mess on the table. Pity for that part. More personnel during breakfast hours would make it a 5 star

Nothing fancy, but the rooms are clean. They come with free coffee, ironing board, and WiFi. Staff is courteous and helpful. No shuttle to airport at this time. Taxi ride ranges $25-40 one-way. Restaurant is currently closed, but free bagged breakfast is provided.

This place was not at all what I expected. It was pretty charming. It's also far bigger than I expected. All the rooms open to the outside, motel-style. Mine was in a far corner facing away from the parking lot. Picturesque with a flowering bush right outside my door. Only challenge was that, as a single woman traveling alone on business, I was a little nervous walking by the men smoking weed in the parking lot to get to my rather remote part of the complex. Bed was comfortable, room was clean, and it was large enough for one person. Might have been tight with a family. The restaurant/bar was in the center of the complex a few minutes' walk from my room. The bar food was sub-par but the bartender was friendly. Overall, it was a nice place and I would stay again. However next time I will request a room a little closer to the center.

Great option near SFO. Shuttle from/to airport works 24 hours. Rates are honest and, after all, this is a Best Western, so you know what to expect. It's easy to eat nearby and you can also reach several stores in a walking distance. Anyway, for this kind of hotel all you need is a clean room and a shuttle to/from the airport. And that you will find here.

We stayed in a family suite that was much bigger than expected. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the kitchen was remarkably helpful. Staff was very sweet and it was a great place to come back to after a long day. Definitely would stay here again. :)

love this hotel! I am kinda stingy when it comes to paying for hotels but I don’t like staying at dumps. This place is GORGEOUS! It’s incredibly beautiful and they have low end (1 queen) & higher end (suites). They have a lot of amenities and the best part? The manger/owner is INCREDIBLY AMAZING! His name is Roy and he is so sweet and so kind and accommodating. STAY HERE!!!!! I love it!!

I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel. The lobby needs an update but my room was clean, comfortable and close to the airport. The "to go" breakfast was good and helped me until I could eat at the airport. The staff were helpful. They made sure I had a cab to get to the airport ($20.00).

Hotel is typical of the hotels on El Camino Real. Room was clean but there were some minor maintenance issues that needed attending in the bathroom. Very convenient to SFO which is why I stayed here. There was a small fridge in the room and a Safeway a few blocks away so I was able to easily procure and keep provisions.
