We had a great stay at Best Western Plus El Rancho. The accommodations are nothing fancy but perfect for the night before a flight. We also had drinks at the bar and watched the Warriors game. The shuttle to SFO is very efficient and easy!

My daughter and I were on our last night of our road trip, driving a red mustang convertible up the coast of California. My only stipulation was that on the last night of the trip, I wanted to be close to the airport. I didn't want to have to hassle with traffic the next morning, worried that we would miss...

Absolutely nothing wrong with this place for a quick and short stay in the area. Very pleased with what we paid for and what we got and, of course, what we expected. Service was great, room was clean. The only room for improvement was the clarity of the TV.

Perfect location for all the events we attended in the Bay area. Very close to airport and transit. The staff went out of there way to help us. The room was large and comfortable and included a kitchenette. Experienced good quiet sleep considering the location. Will definitely consider staying here again. Express breakfast very good and only visited Terrace restaurant...

Love this place! We fly out of SFO and leave our car with the folks at El Rancho. On our return, when we are totally jetlagged and loopy (11 flight from Johannesburg to London, 8 hour layover, 10 hour flight to SFO) it is HEAVEN to be picked up by the shuttle and delivered STRAIGHT to our room. Our car...

When we arrived we were booked into an upstairs room, my husband said that we had trouble with stairs and any chance of something down. The lady at the front desk immediately checked and upgraded us to a large room downstairs with no problem. El Rancho Inn employees have always been extremely helpful and courteous. We don't expect to stay...

nwind Planning a trip out of San Francisco? If you know the area and its inherent traffic problems, you know that you must plan ahead to be at the airport on time. Why not take the tension out of your trip. Check in at El Rancho the afternoon before you fly away. Park your car in front of your room...
