Not only does this hotel have that kitsch feel that gives it a hip edge, but the amenities and staff round out the experience making it a fabulous place to land yourself for the weekend. The rooms are clean, the pool is quaint, the bar and restaurant have a great selection of handcrafted cocktails, craft beers, delicious appetizers, entrees, and... More

Super cute hotel, very clean, and the staff was super nice. Very close to Sunset Hills beach, which is wonderful for a great view, but the cliffs make it hard to get to for actual swimming. Also close to some nice restaurants, and in an area of town that's not too traffic heavy. It was nice staying at a local... More

I am a long-time customer of the Pearl and this stay was just a good if not better than any of my previous stays. We were taken care of from the minute we checked in! I let the hotel know we were coming down for my wife's birthday and they had a special note on the bed when we checked... More

Every time I'm in San Diego, I stay here. This is a fabulous little boutique hotel that is close to so many attractions, restaurants, and the airport. Don't worry, even though it's very close to the airport, you don't have the air noise of planes overhead. The staff is always friendly and happy to help or give recommendations for local... More

This is a great find. Hidden in Point Loma, this beats the pants off any motor inn I've ever stayed in. I was treated as if I were a guest at the Ritz Carlton. The pool atmosphere leaked into every room. I felt like I was at a resort, but they only have 23 rooms.

My husband and I are locals & live close by in Point Loma. We were looking for a cool place to have date night in the area that we could ride our Vespa to - The Pearl was it, and we snagged a last minute reservation for dinner by the pool!! The service was top-notch. They really bent over backwards... More

I was a little nervous about the Pearl when I saw it's exterior, but once I got inside my perceptions totally changed. The interior is absolutely beautiful with this modern meets Don Draper vibe. We had some issues with our first room, and as soon as we let the staff know we were upgraded to a different room and given... More

I stayed at The Pearl after seeing its great reviews online and also seeing that it was on a list of best affordable hotels in the country. It's definitely in a great location with extremely helpful staff. The highlight for me was probably the great food and drinks at the restaurant. Emily does a great job buying some great wines...

We loved this little spot on our most recent trip out west. Never before have we stayed in such an awesome, retro boutique hotel! No detail went unnoticed, that's for sure. Excellent designs throughout! So convenient to have the restaurant and bar on site. With such delicious options, we had a hard time picking what to order! Just a tip,... More

Just got back from a 4 night stay at The Pearl with my fiance. Very cool little spot for a great price. Had a neat retro vibe to it. Good location and great staff. All were very friendly. Two of the front desk agents let me use their computer to print some things out. The movie nights are a great... More
