We stayed 2 nights at this hotel that is located just north of SFO. The hotel was very nice, clean, good service. We were upgraded to a suite on our second stay (traveled north in California between stays at this hotel). Good continental breakfast and kitchen is open very early for earlybird travelers. The breakfast is located in a separate...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 December 2016 via mobile

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...

We have stayed here before & after 2 trips to Europe now. It's very convenient & comfortable to stay the night before we fly out & stay the night after we return to rest up before driving home. They provide a shuttle to & from the airport with very pleasant drivers. They are very organized about the whole process. The...

I love this hotel and it's great for park and fly as well. We stay here overnight when we're in the Bay Area and use the park and fly on extended vacations. It's a super deal either way. I hope you will enjoy this place as much as my wife and I do.

We chose this hotel, because it is convenient close to SFO and to the Milbrae BART station. The hotel was a positive surprise, build in Mexican Ranch style, nice and large with a great restaurant place in the center.

I have stayed at this hotel many times for business. The staff have been nice, and helpful. The rooms have comfortable beds, and pillows, always clean. I appreciate the older tile, in some of the rooms, it's nostalgic. I love the palm trees, as well as the little garden and greenery seen from my hotel window, it is relaxing. Overal...

The rooms are clean and comfortable with a choice of firm or soft pillows. The resaurant is very good and you get a continental breakfast in the room rate. Very easy to get to SFO and car rental return,

Room was pretty spacious, clean and sanitary, VERY comfortable beds, staff ALWAYS pleasant and helpful, close to airport and not far from S.F. attractions. Plenty of restaurants in the area as well as stores to purchase personal items you may want (from deodorant to beer). Grounds were well maintained and pleasant to sit outside. Continental breakfast was not so good....

Flying out of San Francisco International Airport early in the morning made this place ideal, but it was nice enough I would consider coming back to stay longer. I think they had 4 shuttle busses running back and forth to the airport and its close. Their continental breakfast was very good and it opened at 4:30am. Everyone was very courteous...

El Rancho Inn is a charming, beloved, historic Mission style motel that's a well-oiled machine for travelers who leave their cars here while traveling. Unfortunately, it's been sold and is scheduled to be torn down and replaced within the next 2-3 years. Your chance to experience this funky gem is running out.
