“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

The hotel is stratigically located. It's only wallking distance to the Marina where you can have a fantastic view with the Golden Gate especially during sunset. The room was big, comfortable and clean. They have also free parking spaces especially we needed that one when we checked in and service was good.

The Coventry is located on Lombard Street. We had a large front corner room from which we could see the Golden Gate Bridge. There is definitely some street noise from the front of this hotel but it wasn't bad. If you have to sleep in total quiet, request a room on the back of the hotel. This hotel has recently been refurbished. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms and hotel are clean. Parking is free. The only problem with parking is the size of the garage. If you return to the hotel in the evening chances are very good that there will be no parking. The hotel does have a simple valet process where they keep your keys and double park cars in the garage. Service at the front desk was very helpful and friendly.
There are some very good restaurants within a four-block walk on Chestnut Street.
We had a wonderful 5-night stay.

Firstly, the only quibbles: 1. It feels slightly odd that there are no guest areas, and that the office/reception is a small unit at the front of the parking garage. 2. Paying $225 a night felt over the odds, even given the location and comfort.

However, despite these, staying here was an overwhelmingly positive experience. It is easy to drive to, being right on 101, and great for those with a car (free parking). It is on or near bus routes (the best way to get around), and near the trendy Chestnut street (Marina) and Union (Cow Hollow). It is also not that far from the bayfront, and Fisherman's Wharf (15 mins walk).

The room was large, with plenty of storage room and a table with 4 chairs, and really nothing to fault. The bathroom was also very sizable, and also clean and well-appointed. The biggest bonus is the bed - extremely comfortable, offering great sleep.

As a note, there are a number of similar places along Lombard Street - so it may be worth comparing prices before booking.

Room Tip: South side (rear) of building made noise a non-issue.

We have stayed at sister hotels,but first time here. We were very pleased with our large king room, with large bathroom Big, comfortable bed, big flat screen tv. Everything was spotlessly clean. Parking garage included. We walked during the day and then at night took the #30 bus back.Very easy and convenient. Hop on Hop off bus passes this street, too. Mel's Diner is a couple of blocks away, back to the 50's.

Room Tip: quiet room, top floor, in the back

We had two rooms for three nights at this hotel in September. The rooms are nice. Two comfortable double beds, nice big flat screen TV with more channels than you know what to do with, the standard bathroom with tub/shower combo. All were nicely decorated and a good to high standard. The air-con was limited. You could not get the room really cool but cool but as it was not that hot outside it was cool enough.
Here are the pros.
1) The location was excellent for walking to dozens of great restaurants and cafes (just 5-10 mins). It was an easy walk (20mins) to the Presidio to the west and just a bit further (40 mins) to the wharf/pier area to the east.
2) The guy at the front desk called Tony is great. Really friendly & a great source of information from reccomending restaurants to the best place to grab a taxi.
3) This hotel has a car park which is safe & dry.

Here are the cons.
1) This part of Lombard street is very busy with 3 lanes in both directions. As you can imagine 6 lanes of traffic is noisy. I was woken at 5:30am each day by the noise (and I am partially deaf!). The noise subsides around 10pm. This is likely to bother most people so I suggest that you grab a room on the back or the side of the hotel and not the front like us.
2) When Tony was not on duty an older guy took over. He was the complete opposite. He never smiled, barely spoke & seemed utterly miserable.
3) There was no fridge in the room, just a small ice bucket with an ice machine down the hallway.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back to avoid the noise.

We spent 3 nights at the Coventry Motor Inn, we were very pleased with the spacious clean rooms and wonderful customer service!! Great Location, was within walking distance to Fishermans Wharf. The staff were helpful and gave us the best advice on buses to catch and places to see! A wonderful gem in a beautiful city!

Clean, comfortable rooms near to some of San Francisco's highlights make this a good choice. The included parking made it a value. Ask for an upper floor room at the rear to avoid traffic noise from the fairly busy street it fronts on.
