Gutes Hotel in der Nähe zum Flughafen und trotzdem kein Fluglärm zu hören. Dafür gibt es eine Zugstrecke direkt hinter dem Hotel...

I liked it but had a issue with the fridge. Should be bigger also it wasn't cooling enough! Should add more movie channels.

We were very disappointed that by going through Expedia to book our over night stay at the El Rancho, we were not able to take advantage of the 2 weeks of free parking. If we had known that in advance, we wouldn't have booked our stay there through your company. Unfortunately it costs us a lot more than we expected!

Comfortable & Clean: Easy access to SFO and BART

Posted Jun 23, 2015
We were looking for a place with easy access to the SFO airport (and that was less expensive than downtown SFO). The El Rancho was just perfect. It is a large complex. Buildings are not new but extremely well kept. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Free shuttle service every 30 minutes to SFO airport. BART is accessible by going back to the airport (airport station) or by walking about 3/4 of a mile (Millbrae station) or by taxi (Millbrae station to hotel - about $5 on the meter). Millbrae to Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco via BART about $5 and 35 minutes. Hotel serves continental breakfast starting at 4:30AM (super for those who have early flights out). Breakfast included several food options and nice buffet service. The El Rancho impressed me as being an extremely efficiently run hotel in a great location where management truly understands the needs of its guests. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

new and clean

This BW is better than other ones I have stayed. Its outside looks like Inn but it is very clean inside. The furniture looks new. I am satisfied with it.

Poor night staff . . . . great room

Posted Jun 17, 2015
Pros: The room and bathroom were clean.
Cons: The front desk staff's attitude could use an adjustment!
Location: There were lots of eating places nearby within walking distance. It is right downtown.
After a late delayed flight we called for the shuttle. A snippy, rude response, 2 calls and an hour later it showed up. At check in we were given desultory, brief directions to our room which was about a block away. After dragging all our luggage that distance, our room was not on the second floor as we had been told. Another phone call and condescending response resulted in me hanging up on them and we finally found our room on our own - on the third floor! That being said, the room was very nice, clean, and comfortable. The morning shuttle was on time and everything else went well.
