Was pleasantly surprised by my recent stay at the Opal. The staff was very courteous. Free continental breakfast included bagels, toast, yogurt, muffins, hard boiled eggs, mixed fruit. The hotel, although older, was very clean. On Wednesdays, they offer free wine and cheese tasting from 5-6 pm. The hotel is close to nearby eats (Mels Drive In, Tommy's Famous, Village Pizzeria.) Also 5 major street blocks away from the Famous Cable Cars of the California Line. A short cab ride to Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39, Aquarium, and the Exploratorium. Our cab driver even took us down Lombard street, on our way to Pier 39! Not a good idea to go walking about at night, but that isn't limited to just this Hotel. All in all, I would definitely stay again!
The hotel all-in-all is basic and very well kept. The valuable amenities are all there: friendly helpful polite staff, free parking, microwave, refrigerator, ice, and free internet, and good food quite nearby.
Loved this hotel. Great facilities and ambience. A haven in a not so great area of San Francisco. We had an unfortunate experience walking out of the hotel when we were approached by a threatening character. Not great for my 14 year old son who then felt frightened of leaving the hotel. A shame because this hotel is wonderful and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in the city. Lovely pool. Lovely muffins and coffee for breakfast and staff really friendly and helpful.
Nice motel in perfect location!
Clean and calm street situated in "cool" neighborhood.
Lots of trendy restaurants, bars and cafés nearby.
Coin-operated self-service laudromat only two blocks away.
Public transportation at walking distance.
Requested room on upper floor but got ground floor instead. Peaceful and quiet, though.
AC only, windows won't open. Air was heavy after 3-4 days.
Breakfast was basic, could have more variety.
