My wife and I stayed for one night during a visit to San Fran and neighboring wine country. This hotel was an unexpected delight. Great location for the price, though not immediately next any of the myriad tourist spots. It was a pleasant walk to the waterfront and Ghiradelli Square, but if walking is not your thing, a car or public transit will get you to those places.
The front desk staff was great and the room was very spacious. The Tempurpedic bed was a great touch.

Our room faced Lombard street; we didn't have a noise "problem". There was noise, but that may have been from the fact that it is on one of the more busy streets in one of the largest cities in the nation's most populous state. Kidding aside, their was street noise, but hey, you're in a city and should expect that.

Definitely no breakfast, but when you see the configuration of the building, it won't surprise you. Actually it gave us the opportunity to find a great breakfast place in a quaint neighborhood.

Wished we had planned to stay at this hotel longer.

We were incredibly pleased with the value provided. Unable to find another hotel in SF due to conference, we took a chance on Coventry Motor Inn for a night. Very professionally run, clean, great mattress, parking fantastic, and great location. Unbeatable value. The staff/owners clearly strive to provide a quality experience at reasonable rates. Highly recommend for value.

San Francisco can be an expensive place to stay, and so our decision to stay here based on both price, and location. This is an older hotel, as are all buildings in the area, so don't expect everything to be bright and new looking - more like Europe. We had a room over a busy, and fairly noisy street, but our choice as courtyard view room was available. Room had a bay window, so spent some time just watching SF traffic. Seemed to take about 1/2 hour to walk to Fisherman's Wharf area. Good restaurants within a short walk.

Room Tip: Likely only difference is the traffic noise, so if important, request an inner courtyard view.

The hotel is located within walking distance of the Fisherman's Wharf and Cow Hallow. Plenty of shopping, bars, and restaurants nearby. The hotel is not a high class hotel, but it was very clean and staff were very nice and helpful. I would go back again.

I arrived at Coventry in at 1:20 am after a long day of travel. I was really looking forward to getting to bed however when I arrived the business office was locked, a sign on the door said back in 5 minutes.... well 5 minutes was not 5 minutes. I was left standing outside with my bags, looking obviously like a tourist on my own in an unknown part of town in a city I don't know. This was not a comfortable place for woman in the middle of the night. After many minutes and multiple phone calls to the hotel office the night staff finally showed up and told me he had been sitting there but had stepped away to wash his face because a disgruntled guest who had been asked to leave and had spit in his face. This information certainly made me feel a little speculative about staying at Coventry Motor Inn. I don't think I would go back there again just because my first impression was shy of positive. I would like to reaffirm that the rooms are clean and the price relatively good for San Fran... but noisy as Lombard is a busy street from 4 am onward. I give this an average rating but would put it somewhere between poor and average overall.
