The location of this hotel is fab within reach of everything with the bus stop around the corner. Check in was a breeze every friendly staff. Our room with big and spacious didn't have a great view but we could hey ho we didn't come to San Fran to stay in the room! We were on the main road so it was noisy but it didn't stop us from sleeping. The beds and pillows were amazing and comfy.. Bathroom a little on the small side but does what it needs to do!
If we are lucky enough to come back to San Fran I wouldn't hesitate to come back.

We were very pleased with this hotel. It was totally clean, the room was large, and we were able to walk to Fisherman's Wharf, and to the pier where the Alcatraz boats leave. ...It was a lot of walking, but it was not a problem for us. At night, we walked to nearby restaurants or caught a bus to Little Italy. The parking was great. We got a spot right across from the hotel office and then left our car there until we had to go to our next destination. We paid $5 a night for a mini refrig. but ended up not using it.
There are two other sister hotels to this one, so if you can't get a place here, you may want to ask about the other ones.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget. It was not fancy, but it worked out really well for us. It was safe and clean and was in a great location.

Stayed here for three nights during visit to San Fran. Visited during the high season so finding a hotel for less than 300 a night was a challenge so finding this hotel with free parking for about 200 a night (with taxes) was a relative bargain.
Pros:
Friendly service
Free Parking
VERY close to bus routes to all major attractions
Fast Wifi
Clean, reasonably appointed and spacious rooms (in room fridge costs 5 dollars a day).
Tons of restaurants nearby
Cons:
No breakfast
A little noisy due to location on a busy street

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room request a room in the back away from Lombard street. We were given a seco...

Finding a reasonably priced hotel in San Francisco is tough unless you want to stay by the airport or settle for a run down motor lodge. Coventry Motor Inn isn't a five star hotel but it's not a Motel 6 either. It's a nice, centrally located hotel for a reasonable price.

The hotel has a great location. A mile or so from Fisherman's Wharf, a couple of blocks from Chestnut Street and Fillmore Street each with a ton of great places to eat. There's a couple of great grocery markets, interesting pubs and more within walking distance too. We wanted to avoid the more touristy areas and this place was a perfect place for exploring the neighborhood and seeing the sights.

The staff was friendly and parking was easy. We always had several spots to choose from in the garage. We requested a room in the back (upon advice I read in Trip Adviser reviews) and a refrigerator. We got both without any hassle. The room was clean and spacious (considering). We even had a view facing south over the neighboring buildings roofs since we were on the third floor.

The bed was a bit firm and the pillows left much to be desired, way too soft. We drove so we should have brought our pillows from home. Our room was very quiet except on trash day and the occasional fire engine from the station a few blocks away. Such is life in the city. The room had a big TV with lot's of selection, a table and chairs and a bay window. The air conditioning worked well and wasn't loud, just enough white noise to help us sleep. The WI-FI was fast enough but unreliable, going out often. It was included but still annoying.

All in all, we'd go back without question. Sure you can get fancier places for twice or three times the money but Coventry is clean, quiet and in a great location. Recommended!

Hotel is situated on Lombard Street, approx. 2k from the Wharf. Be aware that you cannot make a left turn between 6-10am and 3-7pm when approaching the hotel from the City centre. You can better take a parallel street.
Parking is complimentary! Very usefull in this city.
Rent-a-bike nearby.
If you want a 'quiet' night, ask a room at the back side of the hotel.

Room Tip: ask a room at the back side of the hotel (Lombard Street can be noisy)

This hotel is in a great location on Lombard Street/ Cow Hollow and really convenient for getting to San Francisco's attractions, a 5 min walk either way will take you to bus routes 30 to the Wharf and on to Union Square or to bus route 28 to the Golden Gate Bridge. We were checked in for our 3 night stay by really friendly and helpful staff, who took the time to give us some travel tips for S.F. Our room (311) was on Buchanan which is a side street away from Lombard and was quiet enough. It was a large spacious room with 2 x double beds and was very clean and tastefully furnished, in a traditional rather than modern style, but was exceptionally comfortable. There's no breakfast available here, but the Bay Watch Restaurant which is a 5 min walk away do a good breakfast that's very reasonably priced and if you show your room key, they'll give you a 10% discount. The free Wi-Fi worked perfectly and we had a strong signal in our room. The free parking here is a real bonus as parking in S.F. at other hotels (if available) can be really expensive and our room rate for a party of 2 adults and 1 child was $155 per night which we found to be great value for S.F. We strongly recommend this place!

Room Tip: To the side or rear of the hotel is best as traffic noise on Lombard might be annoying.

Hotels in San Francisco can be pricy for not especially brilliant rooms so the Coventry is something of a revelation.
Located on the main Lombard Street (actually part of US 101) it's easy to find (get a room at the back if you want to sleep) and close to public transport options.
You can go local as the funky Cow Hollow neighbourhood based around Union Street has all amenities without the tourists.
Given this 5 stars on basis of price, location, faultless service and the fact car parking is included for free.
