“Best bed ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This motel is great for location, parking and our bed was so comfortable- we slept very well. The rooms are large, and extremely clean. Everything is of high quality and well maintained. The decor isn't very contemporary (think brown!) but we think it adds to the charm!

Stayed here Labor Day weekend with my wife.

Price was bit higher than I normally like to pay for a room in SF, but it turned out to be worth it.

Check in was quick and easy, and the gentleman working the front desk was very friendly.

Room was very clean, quiet, with a comfy bed, a nice TV, and a spotless bathroom. The only thing missing was a mini fridge.

Parking is included, and in a garage.

Location is good. Lots of great shops and restaurants are just a few blocks away on Chestnut Street.

Will definitely consider staying here again.

Costs for hotels in SF can be extremely high, but this one is much more affordable. The rooms are very quiet, but you should try to get a room not facing Lombard. We had one on a back street and it was very quiet. The rooms are modern and up-to-date. The bay window had views of downtown from there. This is a little far from the Wharf, downtown and Chinatown, but there are numerous buses. Fishermans Wharf is within about 30 minutes walking distance, but there are very nice and trendy areas near the hotel and near the Marina. This hotel is a good base to see all of SF, but if you want to spend a couple of days just near the Wharf or downtown, then stay there. We definitely recommend this hotel.

Great hotel in good neighborhood, within walking distance to a lot of nice restaurants. The only hotel that I have found that doesn't charge for parking. The room was very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend Coventry Motor Inn.

I very recently stayed here for 3 nights. The room was good value. Arrived well before the check in time and the room was ready. The Coventry is in a good area with plenty of other hotels. There bars and restaurants nearby. The location is about a 30minute walk from Fisherman's Wharf.
The staff were great. I messed up arranging my transport to the airport and they put in multiple calls to shuttles, cabs and town car companies to get this resolved.

It is tough finding a place to stay in the city that offers free parking, and parking here is available and free. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean large and comfortable. I will stay here again on my next visit. i'm very recommended.

When planning our road trip around the south west of USA, many of the central San Francisco hotels quoted over $750 per night; we paid that for four! It is a little old and tired, but otherwise it is a solid "very good". The Coventry Motor Inn boasts free, covered parking, is in a safe neighbourhood with good restaurants, has large rooms with a clean, comfy bed, massive television with all the channels, well-appointed & clean bathroom with a huge mirror, a working elevator and friendly, helpful staff. It is on a busy road (Hwy 101 is the main road into the city from the Golden Gate Bridge and the compromise you make with this location) so avoid a room on the road. We will happily return to stay here again.

Room Tip: Avoid a room overlooking the road, as it is busy 24/7.
