David and his staff were very helpful for local pharmacy, grocery store, and liquor store which sold the hairspray my wife needed.. Parking is $10 additional charge. Short ride from the SD airport. Rooms all face indoor courtyard but closing the window provides ample soundproofing. Welcoming free drink was most welcome, Didn't try the restaurant but food menu was tempting... More

The attention to detail was really impressive. I loved how the vintage feel was still very present, but in an updated modern way. My room was on the top floor and just happened to face the movie screen over the pool. So I got to enjoy the films from my room! I loved my fish friend (I was traveling for... More

Having stayed at a great art deco hotel in South Beach last month I wanted a similar experience here and was no disappointed. The rooms are small but very well set up and immaculate. The location is great - near the pier (for whale watching) and a short drive or uber ride away from great local sites. Food and craft... More

I had such a lovely staycation at the Pearl. We stayed just the evening and weren't celebrating anything, but it turned out to be such a lovely evening. My partner and I both work in the hospitality industry, so I guess you can say we have high expectations of customer service and quality. Not only were our expectations met, but... More

A great little funky Boutique hotel with excellent service, super comfy bed, free bikes to cruise on and an excellent little restaurant. After spending most of the week down town in a high rise big name hotel it was nice to get one night at the Pearl. I enjoyed great food and conversation with bartender Mike and the other guests....

With all the corporate hotels, with all the executive member "perks" that truly don't add up to much and all the personality-less sterility, it's a wonderful experience to stay at The Pearl. The rooms are clean, the price reasonable. Paul runs an excellent bar, Meghan runs the hotel part of the biz and Natalie runs the whole show. If, during... More

Arriving at the hotel and having read the reviews, I knew I was in for a treat. David at the front desk was extremely helpful and met all my needs within minutes after checking in.

We recently held our wedding reception at The Pearl Hotel. I hope my review can put into word how INCREDIBLE this little Point Loma gem is. The hotel is a small (23 rooms I believe) and hidden treasure. Boasting a beautiful mid-century modern vibe, the ambiance captures the mystic of the Rat Pack era, while keeping things modern with delightful... More

I was expecting something significantly better, based on the reviews. I guess the pool/bar is a big part of the experience, but if you're here in winter, as we were, that's not happening. The room was basic. Shower dribbles out (low pressure) and is mounted at shoulder level. No coffee or tea in the room. But the worst thing is... More
