Travel Blogs from San Francisco
Our first night in town we spent some time scoping out downtown. We stayed in Cow Hollow off of Lombard street. Head west on Lombard and you will find tons of shops and restaurants. Head east and you will find a workout. At the very top of a hill about 5 blocks long, is the portion of Lombard Street known as the "crookedest" street in the US. I …
Today we did some sightseeing. Started by stopping at the Golden Gate Natl Rec Area. It's the last exit before going over the Golden Gate Bridge. From here to Fort Point located under the base of the bridge. Then headed north of the city to Muir Woods Natl Monument, Muir Beach Overlook and Point Reyes Natl Seashore. We then headed back to hotel in …
After arriving in the city from the drive from Sacramento, we took in a few sights, first Coit Tower and then drove down Lombard Street. From there we went to Crissy Field and later to Pier 39 where we had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe and then walked down to Fisherman's Wharf.
Today was a shopping day - after we dropped off the car, Ellen went off alone to do shopping for her work while the rest of us headed to Union Square to do personal shopping for those we left behind. We set off to Perry's restaurant in Cow Hollow for a lobster dinner, but we missed out (thanks to an incompetent waiter) - tomorrow we check out of …
After breakfast at the Yosemite cafe we said farewell to the National Park and headed off towards San Francisco. We stopped off at some turnouts as we left the park for last minute photos of El Capitan and the Yosemite valley. The road to San Francisco was quite winding, as we drove around the mountains. We arrived in San Francisco around 4.00pm. …
How has this motel rated in the past?
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.

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
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.
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.
