The cost was $100 less than nearest competitor for 14 days of parking plus overnight stay. 45 minute wait for shuttle when we returned was a little long, but driver was courteous and helpful. Definitely will consider staying here again.

We appreciate your feedback. We recognize the need for an elevator in our 500 building. We expect to have our new elevator operating in the 500 building by May.

This Best Western has an excellent location just South of SFO airport,and you will pay for it - about $200. a night during the weekdays. The decor is a bit dated, but rooms are extremely clean. The breakfast is from 0430 AM to 0930 AM, and this being SF, has excellent bread and good coffee. Its restaurant is open for...

This place is awesome......looking for a great/clean place to stay at. This is it! When traveling abroad look no further than this place to park your car when traveling and spend the night there before or after you trip. Great location close to SFO airport. Highly recommend this place. We stay here everytime we go on a vacation departing SFO!

My stay at the El Rancho Inn went well. The place was built in 1949, and has been modernized, but has kept the charm of the original design. The room was fairly spacious, and the bathroom had a skylight, which helped to light up the whole room area when the bathroom door was open. It was a comfortable room.

Room was smelling of heavy duty airfreshner… good job I was too tired to bother. The restaurant was decent and burger tasty. Helpful man at the desk. Under no illusions - despite what the promo says this is an airport travel lodge and well used.

Best of the Best Westerns has aged well. Good bedding. AC. Comfortable surroundings. Restaurant is good but too many other good places in the area to compete with. Flat screen. WiFi free. Complementary breakfast is better than most
