7.8.Good.
  • 8.0.Very good

    I really enjoy my stay in The Cova, staff was amazing and super friendly, complementary wine was such a surprise and also Breakfast I blew me away. I know I stayed during a very difficult time for the city of SF where everything was shut down, but I must say I felt safe in the hotel, and the hotel provided us with hand sanitizer and it was great. Only thing it was the homeless situation smoking outside but I understand that out of their hands to stop it. Over all I really enjoyed it.

    I enjoyed that the shuttle was available for people like us that had no idea how to get around. We enjoyed the breakfast variety, taste. The only thing that was difficult is parking and that there is a high homeless population. It was extremely scary to walk anywhere.

    The hotel was clean and desk staff we worked with were very friendly. There is convenient valet parking on the property. Beats trying to figure out parking in the city if you have your own vehicle. The "balcony" that was advertised was a joke. We had a sliding glass door that opened to railing. There was no actual balcony. We had a view of the transients all over the street. This hotel has no air conditioner or heating system. Thankfully it wasn't hot during our stay, the little fan they provided was sufficient. The bed was extremely uncomfortable to me. The mattress was VERY firm. The location is awful. Smack dab in the middle of the tenderloin. The complimentary breakfast was in a nice little room with plenty of table and chairs. Don't expect bacon and eggs type breakfast. It's hard boiled eggs, pastries, cereal, etc. It was nice though. Overall, our one night stay was good for the price, but I'm not sure I will be coming back. The super hard mattresses and the scary homeless people just outside the hotel were the deal breaker for me.
