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

Didn't actually stay at this hotel, but a group of us came for the Dive In Movie Night -poolside. It was a fun and memorable night. The staff was fabulous and very accommodating. We had such a pleasant experience, we are already planning our next movie night there. :)

We were here for 1 night and we loved it! Great service at check in and the staff was really friendly and welcoming. They also gave us tips right away about things to do in the area. The room and bathroom were spotless and the bed was very comfortable. We had a rental car and even though they didn't have... More

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this hotel, especially sipping cocktails by the pool in the evening while the Jetsons played on a movie screen. We are recent empty nesters and this hotel reminded us of what it is like to be young and carefree again!

Wonderful rooms surrounding a great restaurant. I've been eating and drinking at The Pearl for years and it never disappoints. Plates and drinks are on par with some of the best in town. What's different about The Pearl is that they do it in a fun and unique way, completely void of pretension. Finally had the opportunity to stay in... More

This hotel is reminiscent of European pensions. Very different than the website pictures. Goldfish in each room. Very noisy until about 11 pm due to proximity of the bar. Great swim in tiny pool in am.

Thank you for staying with us at The Pearl. We are definitely not like the big box/chain hotels. We are a family owned boutique hotel that strives to provide top notch guest service and quality accommodations. Very sorry to hear about the noise challenge on the evening you stayed with us. Hope you will consider giving us another try in... More

What a hidden gem! It was such a great stay and the service was above and beyond - the entire staff was extremely helpful, especially Meghan at the front desk who checked us in! We loved the style of the rooms (we had mirrors on the ceilings!) and the atmosphere of the restaurant at night. We went with our servers... More
