Nothing special

Rooms clean, not the best location. Was ok for money savings. The good thing is that you're between presidio park and market street, right in the middle.

Good hotel for the price with great breakfast

Stayed there for the second time and loved it. Rooms are old but clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very good. Location is convenient near public transportation. The only negative is costly and limited in space parking. Will stay there again on our next trip.

Well located but very ordinary

The Opal is conveniently situated closed to north Market street. I was traveling with my 17 years old daughter and had asked for two beds. However I only had one king bed. There was an old odor in the room that was not very attractive. But the area is so noisy that it is impossible to keep a window open. The amenities were okay, the breakfast was also very disappointing.

Spring break in sanfrancisco

The staff is so nice ! Helped us choose bars, figure out the public transportation and booked me a shuttle back to the airport! The room was perfect, we were out all day and most of the night so we didn't spend too much time there. The bed could have a been little more comfortable but overall the room was fabulous! The breakfast had nice variety and great hours of operation. We felt safe and well taken care of. I would go back any day!

Sanity Break

Average hotel but in a good location for public transportation. Some staff were friendly and competent but others were bored and/or uninterested. Rooms and halls need updating but were very clean. Telephone switchboard was almost useless.

Big bus or hop on hop off bus passes. So helpful and cheaper than cabs. For those who don't want to walk miles.

Nice, clean hotel

Very well maintained, modern and clean. The location is central enough -- though a ways from attractions like Fisherman's wharf. The included breakfast was much better than most, though could have used some hot food. The one guy at the front desk was really grumpy and bordering on rude.

Last renovation was quite a while ago ...

Well, carpet & furniture was put in those rooms quite a while ago - a/c was noisy and the breakfast not really a gourmet style ...

Excellent hotel

Great hotel with unique characteristics and charm. Hotel does charge $30-$35 for parking fee that isn't listen on the website. Couldn't do complimentary breakfast because the beds were too comfy.

Nice Hotel, shady area

The hotel itself was nice, clean, the continental breakfast was nice and the people very friendly. The only drawback is that few blocks to the east of the hotel are a little bit dangerous so take the 38 bus or a cab at night. I had no issues walking during the day but be careful.
