The positives, this place is in the heart of Cow Hollow and close to lots of stuff in downtown San Fran. It is comfortable/clean and was a good value for the price. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it is just a little dated on the inside. Our room had the smell of an old closet. Not dirty, just stuffy. I had no problem with the room though, all the linens were clean, the bathroom was immaculate, the carpet and chairs all clean. No complementary breakfast but they do have a selection of fresh fruit available 24/7.

Historical Traveler Reviews Coventry Motor Inn San Francisco
Clean with comfortable beds .Well situated for getting around San Fran without the car.Parking is included which is a plus in a busy city. No breakfast which is a bit of a nuisance but there is a very good diner down the street
Good Place to stay
My son and I stayed here 21-26 April 2006 and had a great time in SF. Our room was quite big, and clean - as was the bathroom. We had a room on Lombard St and it was a bit noisy but you get used to that after one night. Check in and check out was good. The position is OK as it is only a short ride on the no.30 bus in and out of city centre; they were very frequent, every 5 minutes and went thru chinatown!. Get a muni passport for $24 - great value you can go on all busses trams and cable cars. There are a few restaurants around, good breakfasts served a couple of blocks away west. Area seemd very safe, we came home few nights around 11:30 after a baseball game, night in city etc. and it was OK. After seeing a few reviews of city centre hotels we chose this and it delivered! I would definitely go back.
A Clean and Comfortable Inn
The Lombard Street (San Francisco) has a "sea" of motels/hotels looking all the way from decent to seedy. After reading the reviews for the Coventry Motor Inn, I requested a room (after finding that they offered a "senior" rate) and was pleased with the experience. Parking is free...a major plus in this "pricy" City. The checkin/out process was very professional. The room and bathroom were spotless. The bed was comfortable as was other room furniture. The television offered multiple channel choices. I will plan to return to this Inn on my next SF visit.
Large clean room, maybe to noisy
We stayed at the Coventry Motor Inn on our recent visit to San Francisco (3 nights). The room was very clean and large.
The only problem ist that the hotel is located on Lombard Street, and you can hear all the cars driving on the Lombard...but we were finally able to sleep anyway. Maybe you can ask for a room not facing the Lombard, than you won't have any problems!
The neighborhood seemed to be safe, and we felt quite comfortable also late in the evening. They also offer a complimentary covered parking, which is really of great value!
Great value in San Francisco
Located in the marina district, with a bus stop 1 block away, grocery store 5 blocks away and a jogging path 1/4m away, it is a great value in San Fran. Room was spacious and clean, toiletries provided and daily housekeeping. Free parking is a big plus. The hotel provides the basic, nice beds and clean bathroom and free wireless internet access service. Best for travelling with family and on budget. The hotel is also very secured. Only guests can access the floors with their room keys. It really exceeded my expectation for the price that I paid. Would highly recommend.
We stayed at the Coventry Motor Inn in the Marina District on our recent visit to San Francisco. Although not fancy, it was a great value. Our spacious room contained two queen beds, a loveseat, and a table and chairs. Since we had both of our teenaged children with us, we appreciated the extra space. The dresser and night stand had plenty of drawers to accomodate clothing. The room was quite clean when we arrived, and the daily maid service kept it that way.
At my request, they had placed a refrigerator in our room. There was a charge of $5 per night, which was well worth it. We bought breakfast items from the store across the street and ate in the room before leaving each morning, which saved both time and money.
Although the hotel is located on Lombard Street, which is a major throughway, our room was quiet at night and we had no trouble sleeping.
If you are planning to use public transportation (we did), you can catch the #30 bus one block away. This bus will take you to Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Union Square, and SBC Park. The buses come quite frequently, so we never had to wait very long and they get you to your destination quickly. The neighborhood seemed quite safe, and we did not feel at all uncomfortable when we were out walking at night. I purchased a City Pass online for each of us prior to the trip, which included admission to several attractions and unlimited use of the public transportation system for one week, once again saving time and money.
If you have a car, the covered parking is free at the Coventry. Many of the other hotels charge a fee.
The desk staff was always very helpful when we asked for information. They have free maps of the city and the bus routes. Check-in and check-out were hassle-free.
Total cost for our room per night including the refrigerator and tax was about $125, which I think is great for a major city!
Decent hotel, not the best
The best part of the Coventry is the price. At $85 for weekend nights, it's not a bad deal. Room was clean to start with, but the maid service didn't show up for the second day. Not the biggest deal, but certainly worth mentioning. If you have a car, the garage is a great extra, but isn't worth the savings as opposed to staying in a boutique hotel closer to Union Square and not driving at all. Not too far from the cable cars, still a ways out of the way, though. Probably wouldn't stay here again.
Large, Clean Rooms, with FREE Parking Garage. Close to The Golden Gate Bridge, with decent restaurants in walking radius of the hotel as well.
BEST DEAL in SF...charming, reasonable & free parking
We've been staying at the Coventry Inn since 1994. The management is wonderful, the rooms are charming with a great location and FREE PARKING...a big savings. We're staying there again August 2003. Enjoy...we always do.
Best Deal in Town
Located in the Marina District, away from the hustle of Union Square and high room rates, this delightful motor inn offers large, tastefully furnished rooms, all of which are non-smoking. It is only blocks to Union Street, home to numerous boutiques and restaurants. Two blocks toward the bay is Chestnut Street, also offering local shopping and restaurants. Believe it or not, the room rate also includes inside parking. Just 1 block away is the stop for the 30 Stockton bus which takes one, in minutes, to Fisherman's Wharf, North Beach, China Town and Union Square. In the opposite direction, there is bus service to Golden Gate Park. I have been a guest there many times and have never been disappointed.

Spent the morning in Monterey, decided i should buy a copy of Cannery Row the book by John Steinbeck. Everyone speeds like crazy. If the speed limit is 65mile the normal seems to be between 75-80mile! But everyone does it, seems to be unavoidable. Lucky fuel seems to be pretty cheap and our car seems pretty good on fuel so far too. We were passed …
6am start this morning to give us time for breakfast and to walk to Pier 33 for our Alcatraz cruise! Beautiful morning with no fog for the cruise, and once the sun came out didnt need any jackets at all. Glad we pre-booked because it was sold out until wednesday. I dont think ive ever seen such a popular tourist attraction, so many boatloads of …
... up a steeper hill than I'd tackled even in Quebec City to see the view from the Coit Tower, named for Lillie Coit who, as far as I could gather from the story our hostel guide told us, stalked firefighters. She also donated a lot of money to the firefighters' cause, which is nice, and dressed up as one, to aid in the stalking I assume. From the Coit Tower (which is supposedly shaped like the nozzle of a fire hose) you're theoretically able to see ...

We ended up visiting the Exploratorium, a giant science museum, which was closed last time we looked into going there. It was mostly aimed at kids (and, as expected, full of them as well) but we still had fun exploring it ourselves. Other famous places we visited that day were the most ...
