i lived in San Francisco near this hotel for 6 years. On a week long trip to a conference, I chose to stay here instead of the touristy conference hotels. Not only did I get one of the best locations in San Francisco, I paid only $128 a night instead of the $300 - $400 at the conference hotels. This... More

Stayed here two nights before moving on to the wine country. Excellent value in the Marina district. Friendly, efficient staff, underground parking, clean rooms, and best of all,the most comfortable hotel bed we've ever slept in!

very convenient location in san francisco along lombard street, clean rooms, clean bathrooms, therpeutic beds, nice sized rooms ( we got the 2 queen beds), 2 level parking didn't have any problem parking, would highly recommend if you have your own vehicle parking very well lighted so it felt safe, even garage was clean. Dining places nearby.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It took me a while to decide on a hotel in San Fran, I found most of the pictures on the internet made a lot of the motor inns look quite dated and was scared we were going to end up in some old musty room. However, I was really pleased with the Coventry!... More

My wife and I stayed early April 2015 for 3 nights. Very good staff/service. Our room was on 3rd floor with view to internal portion, which was good resulting on no disturbances during the night. Good cleanness, space room, no cigar odor. To improve: bath shower. Very good localization, about a 20-minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf with option to go... More

We stayed at Coventry Motor Inn based on TA reviews and, overall, it was a good find. Our room (#323) was clean, comfortable (if not a bit dated in its decord) but fulfilled its most basic goal - a decent place to rest following a long day of sightseeing. It was not without its flaws, however... Don't discount other reviews... More

The Coventry Motor Inn located in the Marina district on the corner of Lombard and Buchanan Streets. We stayed here 4 nights and were very pleased with the accommodations they offer here. My criteria for a hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The traffic noise is diminished if you use... More

We have been staying here for over 10 years. Never disappoints. Free parking is a bonus in this city. When we arrive we go across the street to the little market and get some snacks and drinks. Then we take off and walk to Pier 39. Pass Fort Mason, the Ghirardelli chocolate factory and then down to the beach. It's... More

Location. Location. Location! We stayed here for one night while passing through town. The room was comfy and clean, included parking was a plus, and the location can't be beat! The Lombard facing rooms can be a bit noisy with street noise but we didn't mind. Two blocks away at Fort Mason we were able to go for a run... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighborhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighborhood into a party-going hotspot.
