We stayed at this hotel one night. Check in time was 3:00 but we arrived about 1:30. No problem, we were checked into our room right away. The free indoor parking was a real plus. The room was clean and comfortable. The location of this hotel was perfect. This hotel on Lombard Street is just a block away from many restaurants and walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf. Be forewarned, though, the walk back from Fisherman's Wharf is mostly uphill. The hop-on hop-off bus stop, however, is just a block away from this hotel so if the walk is too much for you, you may want to consider taking the bus. The front desk staff was very helpful in providing maps and advice on the Napa and Sonoma Valley. Check out time was 12:00, but once again, they were very accommodating and let us keep our car there until 2:00. I would definitely stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to family and friends who are visiting San Francisco.

Just returned form a California road trip which strated and finished at The Coventry Motor Inn in San Francisco. This is a great hotel for the money in a good location on Lomard St. Our first two nights were spent in a good sized room which had two double beds, was spotlessly clean and all the amenities you would expect from a motor inn unfortunate;y we were on the front of the hotel and the traffic noise was a problem. However after a request made to the front desk staff on our return at the end of our trip we had a room on the back of the hotel which was just perfect. The front desk staff are very helpful especially if like us you are first time visitors. The added bonus for this hotel is the FREE on site parking, also the small friendly cafe Home Plate is about 300 yrds away and serves one of the best breakfast we have ever had in the USA.
If your looking for great value for money in a convienient location then this hotel fits the bill....

Just outside of tourist area. Lots of neighborhood bars and restaurants. Free parking. Comfortable rooms. Good price. It fits all of our needs. You get a much better feeling for San Francisco than staying near Fisherman' wharf. Don' get the constant tourist traffic.

Great place to stay if you don't need all the amenities (breakfast/gym/pool/etc). I wasn't expecting much considering the bargain price, but: The room was nice, clean and quiet (we were opposite Lombard St.). The bed and linens were comfortable. Complimentary Wi-Fi and parking are major perks. Staff were helpful and polite (except for one seemingly grumpy man in the evenings). Conveniently located to a number of attractions and walking distance to many good restaurants and shops. My only complaint would be the quality of the bath towels. Overall, my husband and I had a good experience here and would likely stay here or at one of the sister properties if we visit San Francisco again.

My wife and I were vising a friend in the end of April and she recommended the Coventry Motor Inn. It did not disappoint! I'll be brief because so many reviews just say it more eloquently. We are in our early 30s and like a mix of nightlife and relaxation. Coventry was so convenient to everything, and I do mean everything. Great rates and friendly staff. We also changed our reservation (originally had booked two separate stays with a one night planned up in Wine Country) and the staff was more than accommodating merging out reservation(s) and keeping the original rates. We didn't have (or need) a car but there is free parking to boot. Oh, and the bed! Best night sleep in a long time. Yes, the decor isn't chic and updated, but who goes on vacation to stay in the hotel? Clean and convenient is all I need!

Pros:
- Spacious and clean
- Free Wifi
- Close to bus stops
- Free parking (though limited)
- Liquor store located right across the street for snack and water needs

Cons:
- Very small lobby that looks more like a car port check in than a hotel/inn
- Furniture/decor a bit dated

I was a bit hesitant when I first got to there but the place won me over. I would definitely stay here again!

Although it doesn't look like a hotel, more like a parking garage, we were very pleased with our room at the Coventry Motor Inn. The location is a reasonable walking distance to Ghiradelli Square and Fishermans' Wharf and is also located on the bus line that goes directly to Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park. Good restaurants (not touristy ones) are nearby. Very knowledgeable staff gave us restaurant and transportation advice. The room was comfortable, clean, and quiet despite being located on a busy street. We also had a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Parking was free in the hotel garage. Another plus was a discount on breakfast at a good diner (The Bay Watch) down the street. A good value in an otherwise expensive city.
