Very good for the price

The location is good, but there are a lot of homeless, we got a cab everywhere so we dod not deal with that. hotels in SF are very expensive so i thing this is a good value for a low budget !!!

More than your moneys worth!

This is a great location. Staff was very helpful and professional. Girl at the front desk was awesome, her name is Jeannie (I think). Free breakfast that is more than just simple bagels and coffee. Only downside, hotel is outdated and a bit smelly. Nothing worth complaining. Very satisfied and would come here again!

Good Value

The hotel is in a good location and close to a lot of sites. The value is great in comparison to other hotels. Check your sheets upon checking in. They have new sheets, but for some reason housekeeping used old pilly pillow cases.

Great!

Not fancy but clean and nice rooms, right next door to a theater and diner, and across the street from a cafeteria-style restaurant with an awesome beer selection. Centrally-located in the city so anywhere in SF should just be a short cab ride away.

The hotel location of the hotel is the major downside with a large number of homeless people in the area.

The Opal

It was good. The room was good, bigger than expected. Only downside is that there were so few electrical outlets and the walls were thin.

Adequate digs for the conference

The room and bathroom were clean, but with a bit of a "faded glory" ambience. Staff were very courteous. The breakfast was a bit disappointing for someone who wants to eat "whole foods, plant based." Adequate, but not amazing. Close to many ethnic restaurants, which I enjoy.
