“Brilliant value and location!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for the last part of our honeymoon and had 3 nights in what can only be described as a room with a view! We arrived really early (just after 11am) and Tony on reception, who was super friendly and helpful, informed us our room was ready. Wow! The room are nicely decorated, quite large and very comfortable and we were lucky enough to be given a room with a view of Golden Gate Bridge - stunning!
The motel itself is perfectly situated on Lombard Street. The area is safe - we walked back from the great little pub over the road at 1am; I went out alone early in the mornings for a coffee to the streets either side of Lombard (there are some fab restaurants and coffee shops either side, so worth venturing out). You can walk everywhere from The Coventry Motor Inn - it takes about 30mins to Pier 39, same to the crooked part of the street - but parts are very steep, and about 40 from the central shopping area - however, all of it is a pleasant (and mainly safe - avoid Eddy St) walk.
Yes, the motel is on a busy main road, but we booked it for convenience of being able to get around (though we actually didn't use the car at all in SF), and the parking is included in the price. And, in all honesty, the traffic noise isn't intrusive when you're in the room - Lombard St isn't that busy late at night.
The staff were great and helped us with all our queries. The only down side to the motel is a distinct odour of cigarettes when you exit the lift - maybe 3rd floor used to be the smoking floor. It's not in the rooms (well we didn't notice it in ours'), but definitely in the hallway. However, that doesn't detract from what a great find this motel is - I think you'd struggle to beat it for value and location.

Perhaps the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! Despite being on the main road it was reasonably quiet. When we visited temperatures reached over 70oF so we were pleased to have full air-conditioning in the room. Modern and well maintained rooms with limited parking in the basement. We left the car in the car park and walked and used public transport to see the sights. A bus runs on the next road to fisherman's wharf.

Located on the busy Lombard St in the Marina and within easy (and safe) walking distance of the busy Fisherman's Wharf area. Very much geared towards those driving - I wasn't - but you can easily manage with the multiple bus stops nearby. Big rooms, comfortable beds, free wifi and a large TV to match. Room had a nice view towards the Golden Gate Bridge. Would happily stay there again.

This hotel is located in the Marina district which was perfect for us with a number of bars and restaurants nearby.

The rooms are clean and the beds were very comfortable. We booked directly through the hotels website and picked up a room for around $100 which was a steal. If you're thinking about booking this place from the tripadvisor reviews I'd say go for it.

Close to all attractions, only blocks away from Fisherman's Wharf and Golden Gate Bridge. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Memory foam mattress was awesome. Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Parking included is a definite plus as parking in the city is very limited and expensive. May be hard to get to hotel at various times during the day as during rush hours you can not make certain turns off of Lombard Street. Great hotel in a great city!

The rooms are very clean and the beds extremely comfortable. Free parking and free wi-fi. Great price for what you get. It is also close to some of the tourists attraction. I would definitely stay there again.

Very clean, amazingly comfy beds, strong morning coffee, and in a great location a walk away from Bobo's, Fisherman's Wharf, House of Prime Rib and the main Marina shopping street. Generous parking area with friendly helpful staff. Big room too!
