“Free parking/great location.”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Located in San Fransinsco "Bermuda triangle" so many bars, stores and restaurant you just can't come out. Helpful stuff, good rooms with bay windows, free parking (huge plus in sf) near to Marina, little Italy and China town..

We stayed here 2 nights, asked for a quiet room and were very happy. The Inn is secure, you use your room "key" to enter the building. Tony at the desk was great, recommended a Thai restaurant across the street. No ear plugs needed, even the heater was quiet. The bathroom is large. Quite comfortable. Definitely would stay again. (No pets allowed.)
Parking is all covered, they say they nearly never run out of parking spaces, security camera watches the lower level parking.

Room Tip: Stayed in the back, away from Lombard St. We were in 201 at the end of a hall, on an alley. Quiet...

We are a 3 1/2 hour drive from San Francisco, and we need to go there frequently for shopping, medical, and other needs, as it's the closest city to us. The Coventry Motor Inn is our favorite place to stay for several reasons. In the same group of hotels, all on or near Lombard St., are the Chelsea Motor Inn, Cow Hollow Inn and Suites, and Columbus Motor Inn. We have stayed at all of them over the years. They are pretty similar in comfort, architecture and location, with generously sized rooms and bay windows overlooking either Lombard, side, or back streets, and free parking underneath the premises. The rates for all of these hotels are the best we've found in San Francisco, except when there is some event going on which drives all San Francisco hotel prices up. Free parking included in the rate is a really great feature, as we always drive to SF, and parking at most SF hotels is either not included in the rates, or you have to park on the street. Parking can add up to $45 a day to the price of staying in SF. We chose the Coventry as our favorite because of its location, a bit more quiet with its side street on Buchanan than the Cow Hollow, which can get very noisy at night because of all the bars, cafes and restaurants on Steiner, and the Chelsea, side street Fillmore, which less noisy than Steiner but not as quiet as Buchanan St. The back street of the Chelsea faces a post office, which makes it noisy at various times during the day, expecially early in the morning on weekdays.
Although there aren't as many restaurants within walking distance of the Coventry as at the Cow Hollow or the Chelsea, which are both within a couple of blocks from the Coventry, Union Street, Lombard Street, Chestnut Street, Fillmore and Steiner Streets are alll a comfortable walk away for us at 60+. There must be a hundred restaurants to choose from in this area of San Francisco. You can easily get anywhere in SF from here, whether walking, driving, using public transportation or taxi. The Coventry Motor Inn is our home away from home of choice in San Francisco. If the Coventry is booked up, any of the other hotels in the group are a close second choice.

Room Tip: If you don't mind a little noise and like to people watch, ask for a Lombard St facing room. Roo...

We recently traveled to California and I booked all the hotels for the first time with TripAdvisor! I was so pleased with all my selections! The Coventry Motor Inn was just perfect in terms of the value, the size of the room, the cleanliness and the location in the city. We had requested a room on the side street which we were given and could look out onto the city at night which was great! We stayed here three nights and were so pleased with the ease of getting in and out of the city via the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as how convenient it was for walking to the Marina, or the Fisherman's Wharf, or the restaurants on Lombard and Union Streets. We used the local bus and trolley transportation and the management was very helpful in directing us on getting to the various stops. Everyone in the city was also so friendly so this was a plus. We located a pub across the street from the Inn, the Silver Cloud, which we ate at twice, and it was delicious and very reasonable. Having free parking was definitely a plus in the city.
We have recommended this Inn to other friends and would certainly stay here again, or one of the "sister" inns, that are within a block of the Coventry.

After Arriving by car, you enter the hotel Via A lift situated in the Garage Facing the Reception.
Parking is not a problem & there is a lower ground floor if street level is full.

The rooms are quite spacious & Clean, the décor is not 2013... more like 2000-2005, but still nice condition wise, and both rooms memory foam mattresses.....nice touch and so comfortable!

The Staff in the Reception are efficient and could be described as quick to accommodate..maybe too quick, but Its not uncommon for hasty dealings to be muddled as rude.. and rude is not their aim.

Hotel location wise is pretty good, its easy to get anywhere by electric bus or tram, and the restaurant 2 blocks left of the hotel along Lombard (Mel's drive in) is a really good place for breakfast 50's style set up complete with booths and rock ola's ... really nice.

Would I stay there again?... yes I certainly would, but as I stayed there two nights... I moved my room to one around the corner for the second night... and heard virtually nothing... that's the only complaint... Lombard street is a very noisy street from 4am with traffic.

Room Tip: Try to Obtain a room not Facing Lombard Street.

Very good experience in this motel, close to buses 30 et 28 going to Downtown, located in on eof the most famous street of San Francisco and 10 mn walk away from Fisherman's Wharf ! Perfect !
I advise you to book the room directly on the Hostel website, there you can ask for a special room. Take the 317,with a view of the Golden Gate bridge.

Room Tip: Take rooms on the third floor with view on Lombard Street (north): You can see the Golden Gate from...

We stayed here a couple of nights and it was just what we wanted. Clean, comfortable and a very central location for site-seers like ourselves. They gave us a room off the main road so it was nice and quiet. I liked the free parking in the basement garage. Hint: If you like prime rib there's a little place just across Lombard Street, a short stroll to the end of the block. Very nice.
