“City value”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

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.

I felt so lucky to have come across this place thanks to Trip Advisor. The price is dirt cheap, the hotel is clean and the staff is nice and helpful. It's close to a bus stop if you're doing the public transportation thing and it has a garage if you're coming in with a vehicle. The decor could be updated a little, but wasn't a problem with us by any means. Without a doubt, this will be the place we will stay if we come back to the city.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from Lombard Street, which can be a little noisy.

We stayed here for 3 nights while we explored San Francisco . The location is perfect as its on a main road in and there is ample parking in the under ground garage to park which is included in your room price . The reception staff were friendly once warmed up bit frosty at first . The rooms need an upgrade decor wise but are very clean and comfortable . The hotels ideal location is great for walking out and you can reach a trolley stop in 5 minutes after a couple of big hills but great exercise . Places around for breakfast and a small shop opposite . Would use again if in San Francisco .

Pros - Good location for walking to main attractions, secure free parking, cheap, large clean air-conditioned room
Cons - Rude reception staff, very noisy all night due to main road location

Overall - a good budget option if you have a car

My second visit to this hotel in 4 years. It has retained its good reputation and I recommend it to anyone looking for affordability and convenience. Great location on Lombard Street in the Marina District. Good access to public transit so you can keep your car parked in the hotel's free garage while you explore the city. Friendly staff, all very generous with advice for the visitor.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms fronting Lombard street if possible. There is more traffic on this road at all hours th...

Stayed 2 nights at Coventry Motor Inn for family of 4. Two went to Outside Lands Music Festival and two toured around SF. Hotel near a trendy area away from hustle and bustle of Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square. Walking distance to Marina district food, drink, gyms, etc.

Older property, large rooms, clean hotel. Isabel at front desk extremely helpful with public transportation. Our room was ready early so we checked in at 10:30. Free parking!

Will definitely stay here again when we return to SF!!

We stayed for two nights at the Coventry Inn. Rooms were very spacious for our family of 5. Hotel in excellent location to walk to Fisherman's Wharf where we caught the trolley to go over to Union Square. Very friendly staff. Covered and secure parking that fit our pick-up truck.

Room Tip: Request a quiet room to get a room facing the side street instead of Lombard.
