When we arrived we were booked into an upstairs room, my husband said that we had trouble with stairs and any chance of something down. The lady at the front desk immediately checked and upgraded us to a large room downstairs with no problem. El Rancho Inn employees have always been extremely helpful and courteous. We don't expect to stay...

nwind Planning a trip out of San Francisco? If you know the area and its inherent traffic problems, you know that you must plan ahead to be at the airport on time. Why not take the tension out of your trip. Check in at El Rancho the afternoon before you fly away. Park your car in front of your room...

We appreciate your positive feedback. We've continued to try our best to improve the soundproofing of our guestrooms. Our close proximity to BART/Caltrain is a great benefit but as you mentioned the trains run close to our property.

Very nice hotel within close proximity to San Francisco airport. Room was big and clean with all necessary amenities for us. Some restaurants and bars walkable distance away for the one night we stayed before our flight. Free airport shuttle is very convenient and even picked us up from outside of our room. Would recommend.

Being able to leave my car at the hotel and be shuttled to and from the airport is a real plus. The staff that handles the automobile storage and airport shuttle do a great job. I would also like to commend our waiter, Edwin, at the restaurant. Very friendly and excellent service.
