Please read previous page. It's all there: The place, attitude of the staff, quality, professionalism, availability and much, much more and not forgetting EL Rancho Inn is part of Best Western and we have used best Western many times in Europe and have never yet been disappointed.

A complimentary bus shuttle brings you from the terminal to this motel distributed over various buildings around a court with outside pool. Simple rooms, clean, rather old fashioned with individual heating/AC. Asset: complimentary breakfast for early birds...

We're glad you took advantage of our early departure breakfast that starts each day at 4:30 am. We feel it is important to provide this early morning breakfast for all the early morning departures from SFO.

This older hotel has rooms which have been updated, and were nicely furnished. They provided plenty of soaps, shampoos, coffee, etc. The bedding was nice. The hotel is near the CalTrain, so if you are near the back of the hotel, you hear the train go by (but it seems to stop around 11:00 pm). The breakfast is very minimal,...

Very convenient to be able to leave your car when you have an early flight, and have easy access to it on you way home. Our flight left too early to take advantage of the "early leaving snack". Darn..

This hotel is A-1 as far as location and service. Airport shuttle is fantastic. Breakfast is available very early for those catching an early flight. Nice cafe that serves a decent meal if you get in late. They have a park and ride at hotel while your traveling and will pick you up at the end of your trip. We...

The hotel is more a motel and is tired. Neither the Bar or the restaurant can out their charges against the room. Service is not that great it would help if the Bar tender could actually stay in the Bar. There is no air Con in the rooms and it was cool this morning. would not stay here again.

Good location, near freeway and lots of restaurants. Noisy, you can near the train and people walking outside your room. Rooms decent and clean. Breakfast selection not good. Price for rooms and quality ok.

Unreliable airport pick up- we had to wait an hour due to an odd assumption from front desk staff (oh, I thought you were picked up...what airline again?) I had to call 4 times- disconcerting from 11:30pm to 12:30am! Staff was frompy & unfriendly. Someone else's dirty dishes left outside our door from check in to departure. I reserved a...
