Noisy street, clean room

Would recommend Mon, Mar 21, 2011
We were visiting family, so spent very little time at the hotel. It was a windy, rainy night and our room was nice and quiet. It was pretty clean, but also felt a little old, but not really in a cute way (worn carpet, sheets were clean but had seen better days, some dust in the baseboards). The "breakfast" left something to be desired, but with Mels diner right next door, that's no problem. Location was decent. Close enough to my family's place who we were visiting. I would recommend to someone who wasn't going to stay long or spend much time in the hotel and was looking for something not too expensive according to San Francisco prices.

"Great place to stay in San Francisco"

Would recommend Sun, Mar 20, 2011
This hotel was a very comfortable and clean place to stay while visiting San Francisco. The hotel front desk staff were very kind, helpful and knowledgeable regarding directions to various locations and other information asked of them. The lobby is very lovely and the rooms are a fair size. There are bus stops everywhere so getting on the MUNI is easy and within walking distance. Local calls are free so if you need to use the phone it is very convenient. The free breakfast includes toast, bagels, orange and apple juice, hard boiled eggs, apples and oranges, and coffee and tea. It is sufficient and well stocked at all times and is enough for a good head start in the morning and very convenient. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely stay again when visiting San Francisco. Thank you Opal Hotel for a pleasant experience.

Shopping hint

Haight/Ashbury experience is great for those who love vintage shopping. It is a very quaint area full of great vintage store and nice little cafe's. We took the MUNI buses to get there and it is fun traveling through the city.

Good for the price

Would recommend Mon, Mar 7, 2011
Considering it was by far the cheapest hotel in downtown San Francisco, it was surprisingly good. If you're on a budget, stay here. But there were negatives: 1. Very slow Internet access -- walls too thick to accommodate wireless, I was told, so only slow Ethernet into rooms 2. A little run down -- top drawer handle came off the first time I pulled it; outlet on lamp didn't work so had to crawl under table to plug in my laptop. 3. No view -- the hotel is U shaped, I got a room inside the U, meaning my view was of a wall 4. Noisy -- in part no doubt due to having a room inside U, street sounds amplified, even up on the 5th floor 5. Parking -- tiny spaces, and I was driving a van. Took 5 minutes to park/pull out. Also very iffy parking out front during registration as it's reserved for buses & cabs. I personally had no problems with homeless. They're all over San Fran, of course, didn't bother me and good hotel security means no one comes in who doesn't belong

Good location with a few drawbacks

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 1, 2011
The location of the hotel is really good, you can walk to Union Square in about 10 minutes, which is the center for upscale shopping. The rooms are clean and well kept, they even refill the tissue box. However, some of the rooms face the opposite wall of the building so there is no sunlight and you do not even see the sky. The breakfast is very basic, which is certainly reflected in the room rate. Walking from the hotel to Union Square in evening hours is not to recommend, there are strange people hanging out in the streets!

Close to Yoshi's and Golden Gate Park. Eat at Tommy's, an old style deli that has been around for years. It is right across the street. Had the best pastrami sandwich and this place has a big selection of beers

Time saver

Yoshi's and Golden Gate Park just minutes away.
