“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

This hotel is in a great location to get to any of the major sites of the city. Clean, quiet for a great price with a very helpful staff. We enjoyed our stay very much & would recommend this property!

Second time at this hotel. On Lombard convenient to everywhere by walking or public transportation. The room was comfortable with a limited view of the Golden gate bridge. Several rooms have this view and you have to reserve in advance. The room was in very good condition and clean. They had coffee but no micro or fridge but I think a fridge is available for a fee. They had free parking but we did not use it. I really like the Coventry Inn the price is reasonable in this expensive city. I am looking forward to another stay. Need I say more.

Perfect location on Lombard Street in the groovy Cow Hollow district, one block from trendy Chestnut St, an easy bus ride to Fisherman's Wharf ( number 30 bus on Chestnut ) and close to the GG bridge, Presidio and Palace of Fine Arts.
Huge rooms with memory-foam topped mattress on our king-sized bed, coffee making facilities, large flat screen TV, plenty of space for suitcases, toiletries etc. Friendly, efficient check -in ( note reception is all by itself in the parking garage on street level -kind of odd ) and the all-important free parking ( a rarity in San Fran ) - a huge bonus!
Really glad we chose an area out of the main tourist drags - and in a really safe area! So well- priced for San Fran - around $800 for 4 nights - bargain!!

A basic motel in an excellent location. We requested and were given a room towards the back. It was huge. Plenty of room for 4 people and luggage for 6 nights. Very comfortable beds. Clean and well maintained accommodation. Free parking, plenty of places to eat nearby. No laundry on site but a coin laundry is only a block away. Easy check in. Very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended. Would stay again.

If your goal in San Francisco is to be out in the City exploring, discovery and just plain enjoying San Francisco, AND you don't have any need to pay high hotel prices for extra for things you probably won't use or for which you could find alternatives out in the City at a more reasonable price, then this is your hotel. Because what this hotel gives you is a great location in a reasonably decent area (it's only a few blocks south of Union Street and not too far from restaurants and shopping on Chestnut Street, FREE PARKING (!!!) and a reasonably-sized room with comfortable beds and a nice-sized bathroom, both of them being very clean (I was amazed at how clean the carpet was), and frankly, in San Francisco, that is all you need in a hotel room. The beds were comfortable, the room had a safe, there was enough closet space for our clothes.

Yes, the hotel is older, the furniture looks like it was bought in the 1980s--though it is well cared-for and clean. Just think of it as if you were staying with an older aunt who hasn't updated her furniture in 30 years, but keeps everything clean and in good shape.

Snobby, status-conscious friends, those people who believe in wasting money on conspicuous consumption, will not be impressed with this hotel if your ego needs that kind of thing. However, since you will most likely pay less here on lodging than at fancy hotels, and thus have more money to spend other than on your hotel, your wallet will be impressed.

People who understand S.F. travel and that it is better to spend money doing things in and around the City other than spending it on a hotel room, will admire you, though.

I normally don't like motor inns because "motor inn" usually is synonymous with "dive", but let's not judge a book by its cover, especially since this hotel has received consistently good ratings in Tripadvisor. I found they were correct. This hotel is the exception. My room was very clean, very comfortable.

It has no frills. You get a nice-size clean room with a big enough clean bathroom, clean towels, comfortable beds, great location at a very good price (for San Francisco).

So you don't have a restaurant--S.F. is full of restaurants with many within walking distance. It doesn't have a hotel shop. But there is a corner convenience right across the street. It doesn't have an exercise room--but how often do you use those, anyway? If you need to exercise, take a walk! You won't be in the hotel much anyway, if you really want to visit San Francisco.

The Coventry Motor Inn is a great base of operation for anyone who needs a safe, clean, comfortable base from which to explore one of the great cities and regions of the United States.

Room Tip: The rooms on the third floor facing Lombard street can afford you a minimalist view of the Bay. I c...

We always stay at the Coventry when we're in San Francisco. It's clean, safe, and parking is free (or was the last time we visited). It's in a good neighborhood with many restaurants nearby and numerous small shops. We know all the bus lines nearby and can easily catch a bus to Union Square, Market Street, Chinatown, Pier 39, and Pac Bell park. You wouldn't necessarily need to rent a car if you're willing to walk a little. It more than meets our needs and haven't even looked for a better place since we found it. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms that don't face Lombard Street are quieter.

Stayed here early May 2014 for 4 nights.Was alot cheaper than most hotels.Very good value for amount paid.Cost $155 NZ for 3 adults per night.Loacation was on Lombard street in the Marina District.Bus stop was nearby.Nice restaurant was only a few yards away.Had some early morning starts and couldn't find anywhere nearby open before 10 am to get a coffee or some breakfast.Staff were pretty friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on Lombard street as it is quite noisey.
