    Great motel located close to the airport.”

    Due to a slight mix up with our booking we were instantly upgrade to a superior room. The staff were so very helpful and welcoming, such a pleasure after a long flight and the usual protracted immigration procedure. Our room was absolutely superb with loads of space and facilities. the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean and tidy with all the extras you would expect. There was a free breakfast provided with a good range of options including a cooked breakfast. There is a free airport shuttle provided which ran very regularly. All in all first class and highly recommended

    near the airport, clean and convenient

    had a layover in San Francisco hence was choosing for a hotel that is near the airport and decent. knew that best western is pretty decent and famous in the states hence gave it a try. and most of all there is free wifi around the inn which not most hotel would provide around the area. we had a room each with a queen size bed. the stay was comfortable, room was clean and good. our stay is only a night hence it did good. oh, there is also a free shuttle to the airport which is very convenient.

    Reasonable hotel but be aware of the traffic noise”

    Hotel is reasonably well kept. Problem is rooms on the ground floor is just next to the parking lot with a walkway in between. When car started its engine, feeling like it is next to your bed. It's too shout of distance. I got waking up few times during the night because of that.

    The hotel room is really nice, while the location is closed to San Francisco airport. I found it very convenient if you need to wake up early to catch an early morning flight. Staffs are helpful and very kind. Internet connection is the only disappointment, the connection is unstable so this hotel is not recommended if you need to use the internet for work

    Clean Rooms, Friendly Staff, Not too bad breakfast or "Departure Snack" ”

    Clean Rooms, Friendly reception staffs, nice free breakfast / "Departure snack" offering coffees / teas / hot chocolate, oats, muffins, egg ham cheese puff (nice!), juice, toasts, bagels from 4.30am - 9.30am. Touring San Francisco but did not think location is a hassle as hotel provides 24h free transfer to airport (BART station). Rode $18 Uber Pool rides to and from SF downtown. Thus great price for such room at not too bad location. Better if you are just transiting SFO. reception staff were friendly as well.

    basic hotel nothing special”

    close to airport, relatively inexpensive, clean rooms

    My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Plus El Rancho overnight as we arrived on an international flight and our domestic flight out was the following day. The hotel is average with a lot of rooms and the parking was kind of a hassle with all the other guests there. The restaurant is on premises but you have to walk outside to get there and the menu is limited. Overall rating on this hotel is average 3 out of 5.

    Large near Airport Hotel”

    Clean and Convenient

    Initially had a bit of trouble finding hotel, due to the sporadic numbering system used on the El Camino Real Road. In the end we dropped the hire car at the airport and used the efficient shuttle service. There is a direct phone at the shuttle pick up point at the airport. 15min drive and we were in the large complex.....how did we miss it?? Hotel was well priced and food was excellent, it was clean and tidy. Staff were all friendly and helpful. There is a train hooter every 20 minutes, but did not hear it after we closed window.

    I was staying by myself and someone started to manipulate with my door late at night. The person punched my door back, which showed aggression. The attendant did not help. He brushed it off that it was the pizza delivery. I will not go to ranch style inns anymore and not this one again. The price was also expensive for all this to have occurred.

    Good value hotel”

    great restaurant food, loved the complimentary departure breakfast, hotel staff and family fun in the pool

    Overall, the 3 nights we spent there were good. I booked discounted rooms and then realized there were the rooms in the back corridor of the last building and unfortunately the trains go thru that side of the block (day and night!). If you don't want that type of noise level, ask for rooms closer to the lobby in the front buildings, thought they may not come discounted.
