Surprisingly nice motel – I usually don’t expect as much from the Best Western name. Looks newly renovated. Clean and well appointed. Super comfy bed with a nice collection of pillows. There was an apartment-sized fridge in the room which made it easy to stock some breakfast items to inhale before a 4am trip to the airport. The TV wasn’t...

Needed a place close to the airport but this was nicer than we expected for the price. Parking lot was well lit and busy with people coming and going. This is an old style motor inn. No elevator but it is under construction. We stayed on the backside main floor so quite a hike but quiet. Grounds were well cared...

This is an older hotel that has been updated and is close to the SFO airport. We chose the hotel based on positive reviews and the park and fly feature. We left the car for three weeks and then stayed one night on our return. Parking was included in the room for the first two weeks and then there was...

Thank you for utilizing our Park and Fly program. Thank you for commenting on our Terrace Café and our friendly shuttle drivers.

Reviewed 28 April 2016

I was disappointed to find out that this was an outside entry hotel. Well updated, but still showed its age. What really burned me is that the airport shuttle runs only every 30 minutes. I must have just missed one, and I watched 5 Marriott and many multiple of other hotel busses come and go waiting for the El Rancho...

Stockton, United States
Reviewed 28 April 2016

The room was a bit small but had everything we needed. Decorated very nicely, and the bed was great. The shuttle was on time both ways to the airport, and the restaurant on the premises was very, very good. Also, the breakfast included in the price was fantastic, not your typical continental breakfast. I would highly recommend trying them out....

This establishment has been around for a while -- I mean that in a good way. The facilities have been maintained properly and it shows. My room was appropriately furnished; there was sufficient space to work and the wifi was free. The place was spotless. (Housekeeping deserves a pat on the back.) The climate controls worked well and the system...

Westmont, Illinois

Hotel in quiet neighborhood just minutes from SF airport. Offered commuter parking if needed. Breakfast consisted of fresh bakery goods and fresh fruit which I enjoyed. Close to shopping, restaurants, and plenty of gas stations to fill up before returning your rental car.

Other than a bit of fray on the carpet and the door sticking,the room was super clean; just like I like it. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. I took advantage of the "sleep-park-and fly" option. Even as a walk in, I only had the two minor aforementioned problems with the room, but with the park and fly option, make...

We stayed here on April 15, 2016 during a short airport layover. We stayed in a second floor suite toward the rear of the facility that was much larger and nicer than the standard room we expected, with separate kitchenette facilities and a living room. The grounds were lovely, the entire facility was very clean and well maintained, and the...

We have stayed here a few times when we fly out of SFO. They are only 5 minutes from airport. Easy check-in. The rooms are clean and comfortable. What we really like is when we return from a long trip, the shuttle picks us up within 20 minutes. Drops us right to our room with our hotel key and car...
