Reviewed November 21, 2012

My wife and I have stayed at the Coventry Motor Inn numerous times over the past decade. It's always clean, the beds are huge, comfortable and quiet. And I guarantee you won't find a more helpful or friendlier staff anywhere! This hotel is located close to major Muni lines, so it's easy to get anywhere in the city, including Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, Chinatown, Union Square, The Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park and AT&T Park (Go Giants), or to connect to BART. There are great restaurants on both Union and Chestnut streets within a few minutes walk from the hotel, and you can be at Crissy Field, the Marina Green and Fort Mason inside of a half-hour at a leisurely stroll. This place is the best value in the city, nay, the world, bar none.

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of a West Coast road trip. We booked late but prices were still favourable. Parking was FREE (the only place to offer this on our trip so far) so that was a huge plus after paying up to $30 per night in some places. Internet access was very important to us so we could plan the next leg of our road trip and it was offered here free of charge (as you come to expect), except for one night when we could not gain access.

The hotel itself was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff were extremely polite and professional at all times. After reading other reviews on here we asked for a room at the back of the property (the main road is BUSY) and we found it to be very quiet. We did get woken once at 3am by the sound of the TV from the room next door, but this was an isolated occurrence and we put it down to disrespectful guests!

The location was perfect for what we had planned. Less than 20 minutes walking and we were in Fisherman's wharf. We walked this several times and its a great place to sample the local seafood or have a look in the tourist souvenir shops. We rented bikes from here to cycle the Golden Gate Bridge. For Union Square, you can catch a bus from one block away that will take you there in about 20 minutes. If you don't want to go into Union Square, Chestnut Street is one block away and has plenty of shops, delis and restaurants. Also Amici's pizzeria on Lombard Street does an excellent pizza (my wife is Italian so that is high praise indeed!)

On the whole I would highly recommend this hotel. We would definitely consider staying here (or in one of the sister properties) if we ever come to town again.

This place was a great find in a city which can be quite expensive to stay in. The Coventry Motor Inn was perfect for us, ideally located on Lombard Street just a couple of blocks away from many lovely restaurants and bars, and only a 10-minute walk to all the attractions at Fisherman's Wharf. The room was spotlessly clean and a really good size for the price we paid. The hotel also had its own underground car park which came in very handy, especially as there were no extra charges. The reception staff were very helpful in providing us with maps and directions and also when I had trouble working out how to release the handbrake in our hire car. I thoroughly recommend this place if you are staying in San Francisco.

Fabulous. I was looking for a place to stay in San Fran while I was up for an open house, and I decided to go with Coventry Motor Inn. Reviews were good, and the location seemed perfect so I made my reservation and stopped in in the afternoon. The Inn is located off of Lombard street, a little ways away from Golden Gate park and Fisherman's Wharf, but it was a great location. Not too busy, and only two blocks away was Chestnut street with a ton of nice little stores and places to eat. The parking is at street level, reception was friendly and the rooms were great. Big king bed, nice television, wi-fi, a table, and a bay window made the room quite lovely. The best part? Under $100 dollars for the night. Perfect. Street noise can be a bit loud if facing Lombard, but other than that, it was a great place that I would definitely stay at again.

this hotel is in a desirable location for tours and walking about by yourself aswell. We travelled all over california and for this price bracket, this is the best hotel we had, even compared to some 3.5 star ones and the LV casino hotel we stayed at. Really comfy king size bed, unlike lumpy ones we've had since then. Clean, large rooms

Definately worth it, go ahead and book before these rae reviews cause price increase!!

This was my first visit to San Francisco. Had checked out many hotels, and all were very pricey and some charged $50.00 per night for parking. Stayed in room 310 from November 3rd through November 6th. King sized bed was very comfortable. Flat screen television, large room and very clean. Will stay again on my next visit to San Francisco. Courteous staff and free parking.

We, a family of three stayed for two nights, and we got a large bright room, pleasantly decorated, and immaculately clean. The hotel offers free underground parking, and is conveniently located to restaurants all around and a short walk to the Harbour. We came back to the hotel each night and Tony and Vince at the front desk were super courteous, asking us how our day went.
