Fun times in San Fran

Breakfast could be better. Employees seem rushed and a bit stressed out.

nice location

The Opal is at a perfect spot at the corner of VanNess and Geary, close to Union Square and tons of restaurants, bars, shopping etc. The staff seemed a little rude, and all were speaking what sounded like Italian and seemed to be talking about us as we checked in.

Great location, very nice and clean room, but no extras

Pros: - great location - very nice and clean room - polite and helpful staff Cons: - no Extras: no WIFI ($15/day), breakfast buffet $26 - Lobby seems to be a hangout for young hotel guests

Great getaway

The Opal was a nice hotel. We enjoyed the amenities and the location. It was connected to Mel's Drive-In which was convenient at night. The Opal is located on Van Ness Ave which is right on the city bus line and within walking distance of many restaurants.

The Opal Experienec

It was one of the worst Hotel, I had ever visted. Toilet Flush, Light switch, AC didn't worked at all. Don't stay here at all. Better choose other motels. No direct parking.

Family vacation

Staff was very helpful. Liked the atmosphere-not another chain. It had character. Visited the sites in the city. Was able to get around easily from this hotel. Was a little nervous about location after reading reviews on-line, but I'm not sure what those comments were based on. The area was not rough at all. Just a big city with all that entails.

OK but.....

Staff are very helpful and friendly. Our first room was opposite an elevator door and we were moved the following day to a larger room with cable TV. The Opal hotel is located on a busy street so rooms suffer from internal or external noise so take your pick!! Hotel was not as central as expected for sightseeing although well serviced by public transport.
