Hotel Away from Main Street

Posted Apr 17, 2015
Pros: Free internet and breakfast.
Location: Too far away from everything.
The hotel is away from the main street of Market, Bart and the Town Square so if you want to walk your looking at 4 to 5 blocks. On the second day we found we were able to take the 47 bus towards Fishermans Warf which you can get off 1.5 blocks away which was great for $2.25. The bus stop was very close to the hotel. We also took a bus to Golden Gate bridge over to the park and then took a different bus back to the hotel. The hotel did offer free internet and breakfast which was great. The Bart is 5 blocks away but they did offer a shuttle for $16 each to airport (Bart is just under $10). Depending what your plans are will depend if this is the hotel for you. I found it too far from everything.

Hôtel pratique car bien situé et bon marché

Posted Apr 15, 2015
Pros: le calme
Cons: le petit déjeuner
Chambres correctes propres, calmes, manque de place dans la salle de bain mais comme dans tous les hôtels ! Bon accueil, seul bémol, le petit déjeuner, compris dans le prix de la chambre mais très sommaire et surtout dans une salle minuscule. Sinon parfait pour visiter San Francisco car à proximité des tous les transports !

Handy for public transport.

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: Clean with helpful staff.
Cons: The breakfast could be improved.
Location: Four blocks from California cable car. Direct bus service to Fisherman's Wharf. Also direct bus service to AT & T Park (San Francisco Giants Baseball)
I have stopped at the Opal on many occasions. It is clean and staff are very helpful. I would stay there again.

Great location only a ten minute walk to Union Sq

Room was basic and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was help yourself and there was enough choice to set you up for the day. Good to have a diner next door which serves great food.

Good location for USquare/ Tenderloin area

Rooms have newer outer and inner sash windows so you are able to reduce noise from outside. Breakfast is OK and Staff is very helpful.

Cons: Breakfast is free, but consists of frozen waffles, toast, yogurt, and curiously small apples, and pears.
Location: 30min walk to pier 39, museums, and the waterfront.
Opal is an older, but clean hotel. Although relatively outdated, the low cost makes it an attractive option for those wishing to stay near downtown.

Very old hotel with thin walls. You can hear every noise from the next room.

Nice hotel near Masonic

Posted Apr 2, 2015
We stayed here because we had a concert to attend at the Masonic which cancelled on our way there. We made the best of it and found we weren't to far from anything at this location . Great hotel for the price and sandwich shop across the street it outstanding

A convenient and family friendly place to stay

Posted Apr 1, 2015
Close to local bus stop and shopping area. Hotel has its old charm but a bit dated, nonetheless it's family friendly place.
