A lot of train noise. They don't accept room charges for there own restaurant. The bar onsite has the same problem. The food was very good. There clam chowder is very good. The menu is a little confusing they give you a dollar off for bar menu but the regular same menu is also for the bar.

Thank you for your review. We're pleased you enjoyed our food and especially our clam chowder served at our Terrace Cafe. We are working on resolving the issue that is preventing our guests from charging meals to their room.

Very clean nice rooms. The bed was so comfortable and having the shuttle was great. Highly recommend! We didn't have time to try the restaurant but it was very busy and looked nice. So happy to have found this hotel.

We chose the Park, sleep, and fly option. With the price we paid for the room it's what we would have paid for parking at SFO so it was definitely worth it to stay the night before we left for Hawaii. The staff all seemed to be very generous and helpful. We took the shuttle to SFO which was right...

All I needed was a shower and some sleep between flights, and this was a reasonably priced choice. I called them when I arrived at the airport, they told me exactly where to stand and that they would tell the shuttle driver to look for me, and the shuttle was there in five minutes. On a dark, rainy night, that...

We stayed here for a night before our 5 day Cabo vacation over new years. The hotel is definitely dated, but our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. They really have the park and fly system down and you don't have to worry about anything. When you return from your trip it's a short wait, but they drop...

I stayed at the El Rancho Inn for 2 nights in January 2017. I am a new Best Western member and was upgraded to a suite upon check-in. The Inn is a rather sprawling complex with several buildings of rooms. It is old style with landings outside the rooms and air conditioners jutting out of the landing facing wall. The...

I called to make a park and fly reservation and was told they now offer parking for 10 days instead of 14 and an extra day is now $10 instead of $7. We have been staying here for many years and appreciate knowing I will get to the airport on time and my car is well taken of. I will...

Thank you for your feedback. We are still operating the Hotel with the same management team. Unfortunately our costs to operate our Park and Fly program have increased so we have had to modify our Park and Fly offering. We still feel our Park and Fly program provides a great value.

We stay at the El Rancho when we go on vacation or cruise out of San Francisco They have the process completely organized. Staff is friendly and they are waiting for you when you return.
