Walk in may be better than reservation

Untrained staffs didn't trusted guests who made a reservation via [...] although we showed the printed confirmation so we had to hang around waiting for the Manager more than one hour in addition to be asked to deposit $50 in cash after checking in. Outside the Opal look common contrary to luxurious lobby and room. Only bread provided for free breakfast with coffee, tea, chocolate & fruits juice.

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

Fun times in San Fran

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

Great time

Overall rating 3. Location great (SF is only 7x7 miles), Staff awesome!! Our original room had just been cleansed and it had a bleach smell to it. I called the front desk asked if we can simply change rooms, not only did theyaccomadate us immediately they gave us an upgrade. They also went out of their way to help find us Alcatraz tickets (tickets were sold out the whole weekend). It was a great stay...no complaints at all.

convenient location

In San Francisco to take care of some business. We found the staff helpful and friendly, the room was spacious and quiet enough for downtown San Francisco. It is conveniently located. WiFi in the room requires cable.

There is an excellent restaurant not too far, and near bus route even, but you can walk too or catch a cheap cab: Absinthe.

Good weekend

I was there to run the NWM and only spent one night there. It was noisy, but everywhere in S.F is noisy. It was a warm day and the room did not have air, but it was not a big deal. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, but it is an old hotel and there were some things wrong like carpet was all stained, the toilet some times did not work. I think I would stay again.

Good value for the money

the hotel staff was outstanding. The matress was not to our liking but that is a 25% chance anyway..... personal preference. The location was good for site seeing. close to public transportation. the knowledge of the staff about local eateries and fun was again outstanding

Not best for business - at least on the weekends

This is a nice hotel but I do not recommend for the weekend, Lot of noise, lot of young partiers on weekend. Staff was good, Ok during week, skip the weekend not unless you need a cheaper place. Internet was down a lot of the time

good location but quite average

longest check-in on earth, clean but so old looking that you would think it's not that clean, free breakfast but average in quality
