We recently took a group of teenagers on their senior trip to San Francisco and had booked to stay at another inn. After reading some very disturbing reviews we went in search of another place to stay that was within the budget. The Opal was one of the few that came up with a reasonable price and good reviews. The location was great since it was only a bus ride from everywhere with a bus stop practically right outside the door. The rooms were small but reasonable but after seeing the severe lack of space in San Francisco I was impressed with the size they provided. We had a room facing Van Ness but wasn't bothered by any noise. The bedding and pillows weren't spectacular but they kept you warm. The bathroom was neat and clean. Breakfast consisted of muffin, toast, bagel, fruit, and juice. We payed for the parking that the hotel offers and our vehicles were safe from thievery thanks to security gates. Don't be put off by the suspicious looking people who loom in the alleys around the hotel, San Francisco has an extreme number of suspicious looking people who are everywhere but the hotel has several security measures to keep out uninvited guests including an automatic locking front and back door. All in all we were pleased with the service that was given and very happy with the cleanliness for the price!
