Located only a few minutes' drive from San Francisco International Airport, Best Western Plus El Rancho Inn is a picturesque, Spanish Mission-style hotel that has been operating for more than six decades. Due to its proximity, it is a viable and affordable option for travelers flying in and out of the airport.

Located just off Highway 101 in Millbrae, the Best Western is just a six-minute drive to the terminal at San Francisco International and is within walking distance of a couple of restaurants. For business travelers, The South San Francisco Conference Center is a 10-minute drive. However popular attractions such as Fisherman’s Wharf and the heart of downtown are 30-to-45-minutes away.

Amenities at the hotel are a highlight, with an ample number of features to suit the on-the-go diverse clientele. The Terrace Café features a free continental breakfast buffet with eggs, as well as to-go bags for guests with early flights. The Café offers a cozy setting that includes a stone fireplace and the Veranda Bar, that offers happy hour specials daily. Lunch and dinner offerings include classic American dishes such as pizza, steaks, chops, and burgers. There is also an oval outdoor pool, fitness center, and small business center. Free parking, a guest laundry room, and a 24-hour airport shuttles are among other amenities, and park-and-fly packages that offer free parking for up to two weeks while guests travel is available.

Accommodations are bland but well-maintained and come in Standard Room with either King, Queen, or Double Queens. Larger, two-room suites with sleeper sofas and kitchenettes are also available.

A
8.8 Very good
Pros:Perfectly calibrated airport hotel experience. The shuttle picks you up at your room at the time you request. Very comfortable for one night and an excellent value. The breakfast was offering was convenient and tasty.
Cons:We were disappointed in how small the pool was. We'd been looking forward to a swim as a break from the long day of travel, but we didn't bother.
A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Near the airport with the shuttle that brings you to the airport from your room door. The service was perfect and the room was really confortable. It is awslme to be close to the airport so you can sleep longer. Perhaps, the sound of the planes can be disturbing.
A
7.7 Good
Pros:This hotel is in the perfect area to explore the bay area without being too far away from SFO. The staff are very pleasant and the facilities are good. The restaurant at the Hotel "Terrence Café" is surprisingly good value and really good food. If you need to make a quick stop to refuel the rental car, there are a lot of gas stations close by.
Cons:Location, Location, Location. It's close to the airport and the Cal commuter train line, both you will hear but its not enough to keep you up at night
S
7.1 Good
Pros:It's convenient to SFO with a free shuttle with many basic restaurants within walking distance. I'd stay here again if I needed an overnight near the airport. It's comepletely adequate with restaurant and bar on site.
Cons:It's an old school two story motel on a fairly large campus. So you might have to carry your bags a block from check in and up a flight of stairs. My room was partially updated yet retained what seems to be the original pink tile In the small shower. Kind of cool if you like that 70's feeling.
A
6.8 Okay
Pros:Close to airport for our needs.
Cons:Only shower, no tub.
A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Very good restaurant on site. Transfer to the airport from room door. Had all the features for an overnight stay to catch an early morning plane.
A
8.2 Very good
Pros:These are basic but good accommodations. Nothing luxury here, but what were you expecting for the money? Clean room, good size, nice HOT shower with good water pressure. Staff are helpful, but leave you alone if you don't need them. Nice assortment of pastries at the continental breakfast.
Cons:The shuttle to the airport only picks up and drops off every half-hour, so be prepared to wait a bit at the hotel shuttle stand before you see the "Millbrae" shuttle. You can definitely hear loud jet sounds from SFO, but again, you know to expect this because you're near the airport.
A
8.8 Very good
Pros:El Rancho Inn never fails to be completely courteous and best value. I have used the shuttle service at times and left my car while I travelled. Very convenient and timely airport pickups. Rooms are comfortable and the beds are very comfortable.
A
10.0 Wonderful
