I have to visit San Diego a few times a year for work and am so happy to have discovered The Pearl. I travel all over 3 states and this is my favorite place because: 1 - rooms are clean and not your typical hotel layout. 2 - love th beta fish in every room! 3 - all the staff... More

What an adorable hotel. Clean, charming and an amazing staff. I did not find it noisy at all. Big screen TV in pool area for movie nites. Free coffee in AM which was a huge bonus for me. Very environment conscience. Bathroom was spotless and new.

I was in town for a conference and decided to forego the corporate conference hotel and go with something more interesting. I was so pleased with The Pearl. The staff were helpful, warm, friendly, and fun. (They even booked salon appointments for me.) I loved the restaurant/bar and pool area. The bathrooms in the bar are BEAUTIFUL. The food was... More

I am a repeat business traveler and guest at The Pearl. I will not stay anywhere else in SD. The staff is friendly and professional. The hotel has a very hip vibe and the bar/restaurant are fantastic.

Arriving into San Diego, GPS has me going down this scrappy looking strip dotted with low-end motels, convenience and liquor stores. Right away, I am chiding myself for relying only on T.A. and not talking with locals before booking the non-refundable special here. By the neighborhood's appearance I was certain I'd erred. The Pearl's unassuming exterior belies the treasures within.... More

Absolutely LOVED the Pearl and would 100% recommend staying here. We stayed here for one night towards the end of our California road trip and The Pearl was the cheapest hotel of the whole 2 weeks. And one of our favourites. Converted motel and super fun. Rooms are small but clean, modern and comfy. The best thing about this place... More

Close to the Marina with public transportation accessible (and parking at the hotel available). Not particularly quiet, as it is on a busy street, but fun and interesting. Mid-century modern design, bar and restaurant open to the pool with nightly activities including movie night. Plenty of people come just for the fun, besides the small number of hotel guests.

My boyfriend and I live in the San Diego area, so this was a one night "staycation" for us. The Pearl came highly recommended and lived up to my expectations, and then some. Excellent, super friendly and helpful staff! The room was super cool, mid-century modern style that included a Beta fish, Bruce-Lee, hanging in a bowl on the wall.... More

I just stayed at The Pearl Hotel for six nights! I always sleep well at The Pearl. The food/drinks are delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful. Also, Natalie (manager) went out of her way to make up for a temporary problem with the HBO in my room. I look forward to returning throughout the year.

A retro hotel near the Marina. The whole idea was cute including Elvis movies shown poolside. The room was clean if not extraordinary. Shower pressure was a bit below average but the Hotel was clean and the room had a fish bowl and fish. Creative but really nothing added. But again, the details make the place, n'est pas? On Friday... More
