COVA Hotel, San Francisco
Very Good8.0
My friend and I enjoyed our stay at the COVA hotel. The staff was polite and welcoming. The complimentary breakfast was terrific. The hotel provided a lot of amenities, which I really liked. The location wasn't the best, but as long as your not walking alone late at night, you should be fine.

Not a Safe Area
This is in the heart on the Tenderloin. Lots of homeless, not safe to walk around, and far from any decent amenities. Hotel room was ok but our coffee cuts were dirty from a previous stay-told front desk about it and they didn’t do anything. Shuttle to area attractions is hit or miss

A Good Hotel For A Good Price
Overall the hotel is nice, the area does have a homeless problem but other than that the hotel is good. We took advantage the hotel shuttle to Pier 39 which is also a great thing the hotel offeres. They also have continental breakfast but one thing I can say they should switch up the offerings from day today because it gets a little redundant if you’re there for more than two days.Therefore, I would stay there again.
