Clean, spacious rooms. Ours actually overlooked on the Golden gate.
No breakfast, but plenty of places nearby.
We walked everywhere and we had no problems. I suppose that if you drive, it would be perfect since they seem to have a spacious parking (San Fran standards:)
The staff is super helpful.

This is a great place to stay, just a couple of blocks from Union St. shopping and restaurants. It is convenient, clean, comfortable and updated. We didn't quite know what to expect for the price of this hotel, but it far, far exceeded our expectations. The bed was incredibly comfortable. The staff was very accommodating. We arrived in town early and had an Alcatraz tour booked. We didn't think we would find parking down by the pier, so we asked if we could park in the hotel garage, even though we wouldn't be able to check in until later that afternoon. They allowed us to do that and helped us get a cab to the pier. When we were leaving, the desk clerk helped us pack up our olive oil so we could take it in our suitcase on the plane! Although there is no restaurant in the hotel, there are several on the same block, one being an excellent Thai restaurant, that is very reasonably priced, and even offers delivery. You cannot go wrong with this hotel.

This hotel is good value and has safe, easy, guaranteed car parking, a must in SF. There are no public rooms just a reception in the car park. There are no dining facitilies. The room was spacious and very clean although dark because it looked onto to a small enclose space. It is on a main road with a few dining places near by and a very useful general shop across the road - excellent for wine, milk and biscuits! The buses are excellent and getting around is easy. It is walking distance to Fisherman's Wharf but takes about 25 minutes. Be careful not to walk back over the hill unless you are prepared for a good climb and it is not dark and raining!
SF is fantastic. We stayed 4 days and could have done another 4. Highlights: elephant seals sunbathing on the pontoons at Pier 39, The Academy of Science in Golden Gate Park, boat trip to see Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars. Only moan: coffee makers not kettles in American hotels so tea tastes bad.Take a heating device. Hotel had no kettle it could supply.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quiet but we were looking onto a enclosed space and there was no light or view...

We stayed at the Coventry Motor Inn for two nights at the start of our California road trip. We chose the inn because of the location and parking. Both of these met our expectations. We always got parking (even for a large vehicle) and the location was perfect for touring the city (by car, foot and public transport)

The rooms were very standard and unfortunately ours had the window to the ventilation shaft (very luod).

A nice bonus was the very friendly staff.

If you are looking for a place to stay for a few nights and need parking this inn will meet your needs.

I stayed 2 nights at The Coventry Motor Inn. It is a no frills place, but the room was wonderful, hotel was quiet, and best of all was the location. Unfortunately, I was not able to get around much due to a sprained ankle, but close by were restaurants, movie theaters, and the MUNI. The number 30 bus is a block away and goes right to BART, Fisherman's Terminal, etc, and there are 2 major streets on either side of the hotel where there is a lot of shopping and many, many restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

Don't be put off by the dated decor, this hotel has all you want from a city hotel. We had a view of the Golden Gate Bridge from our bedroom. Loads of space. Free car parking. Friendly and helpful staff. The proximity to Chestnut Street and Union Street shops and cafes was an added bonus. Would not stay anywhere else if I was visiting San Francisco again.

Wonderful hotel in a great area of San Francisco. Check in staff were friendly, price per night with free parking was a steal. We paid $100 per night on weekdays. The location is great too. Lots of restaurants, a corner grocery store, laundry and an amazing coffee shop (All Star Donuts), all close by. Feels like a real authentic neighborhood, not touristy at all. Public transportation close by for all the tourist spots. Park the car and forget about it. That's the best way to take in SF. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean. No issues at all. Will definitely return.
