“Good inexpensive place to stay in SF”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for an inexpensive SF hotel with parking provided. It is right on Lombard street, which is noisy and full of other hotels, but just a couple of blocks away from Cow Hollow, a neighborhood with lots of restaurants, Real Food grocery, coffee, and shopping. You can walk to a lot of other neightborhoods from here (Little Italy, Chinatown, Russian Hill) and can catch lots of buses to other locations. Dependable Wifi, helpful staff- would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Lombard street are very noisy with lots of buses going by.

This hotel was a great find in San Francisco! It was reasonably priced, well- located, had free parking, large clean rooms, quiet halls, comfortable beds, and a friendly, helpful staff. Three of us (two adults and a child) spent three nights there in June, and were well satisfied with everything about the Coventry Inn! Within two and a half blocks, we ate at the great Mel's Diner, and also caught the hop on-hop off tour bus. (We bought the tickets at the hotel!) My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

Room Tip: If street sounds bother you, ask for a room that does not face Lombard.

This hotel was, for the money, quite good. It's location is perfect for exploring the local areas. It's a lovely walk along the waterfront to the harbour bridge and also the town. Free parking was also a big bonus for our stay.
Definitely recommend and would stay here again!

There are lots of generic-looking motor inns along Lombard Street. I don't know how any of them compare to the Coventry Motor Inn, but I was really delighted to find this place. Hotel prices are sky-high in San Francisco and I was dreading the cost of finding somewhere in a good area with parking on top. Then I found the Coventry and I would highly recommend it! At just a little over $100 per night we got a spotless, well-maintained large room with two double beds, a good TV, a coffee maker and secure parking included. This part of Lombard street itself is pretty quiet and residential with some very good local restaurants, a playground and a Safeway in the area. There is also a bike rental place across the road - very handy if you want to cycle the bridge without needing to walk to the spate of rentals down at Fishermans Wharf.

Stayed here two nights while vacationing in San Francisco. If you are looking for a super clean room, free parking and heavenly beds for a reasonable price, look no further! Staff was super friendly and helpful answering questions about sight seeing. Also, walking distance to great resturants and a 20-30 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf, would definitely return.

What an unexpected pleasure to find an affordable, comfortable and extremely clean hotel, in a convenient San Francisco neighborhood, with free parking, Just returned from spending five nights at the Coventry Motor Inn and have nothing but good things to say about our experience. The housekeeping staff does an impeccable job keeping the facility clean. While the Motor Inn has no restaurant facilities, there are numerous restaurants nearby offering an array of choices. The location of the hotel is within a 15-20 minute walk of Ghirardelli square and Fisherman's Wharf. We will definitely return to the Coventry on our next visit to SF. The hotel is located on Lombard Street, a major San Francisco thoroughfare. During rush hour in the morning, you may hear some traffic depending on your room location. Comfortable, clean, conveniently located and affordable with free parking........what more can you ask for?

Our plane was delayed and we were still greeted at 2am with a friendly professional man at the front desk! Next day the day manager was super helpful . She helped us with a computer issue we were having! Big plus is the free parking for every guest room! Lovely, clean room and comfy! I HIGHLY recommend the Coventry Motor Inn !
