We stayed here for 3 nights, the hotel was pretty good. The beds were comfortable and rooms were clean, the breakfast was also good. The hotel is good value and it was easy to get to the main sights. Many have already commented on the fact that the hotel is near two missions, that help disadvantaged people. Although this made...

I wanted to post a review because of all the mention of the bad location. I stayed for 4 nights and always felt safe and secure while staying here. The location is ideal for someone who wants to see more of SF than Fishermans Wharf. Theres easy access to all of the neighborhoods from here, and the free hotel shuttle...

We had a great 3 day stay in a helpful, friendly enviroment. Not the best area but this hotel makes up for this by its good staff and free shuttle service. The continental breakfast was great. Good value.

We had a great comfortable stay with a really friendly service. The first night we stayed in a room with a connecting door to the next room. That was quiet noisy and we tried to change the room next day. The staff was really friendly and gave us without any problems another room. We appreciated the really comfortable beds and...

From the time I called Cova Hotel and spoke with Joyce, I had a good mental impression of the place, regardless of the reviews I read online. I was so happy that I chose Cova. When my husband and I checked in, we were met with friendly faces. Roth and Anton were at the front desk. They were so helpful....

I read a lot of good and bad reviews on tripadvisor before i stayed during my recent vacation in April. I was skeptical about the homeless people and the noise that was mentioned in the reviews. There are homeless people around but the hotel has a wonderful option of pick up and drop of his guest to Union Square/Fishermans Wharf...Great...

This hotel was our first stop in America. We really enjoyed our stay here, the rooms were clean and a good size. The hotel lobby is a nice place to relax while you wait for your room and they also kindly hold your bags. There is also plenty of maps of San Francisco and plenty of brochure with things to...
