My second stay here was as fun as the first! Cute and intimate -a throwback from the 60's. Staff was friendly and helpful. This place was wonderfully decorated for the 4th of July holiday. Rambo was our fish for the night. We'll definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Room 1, this room was great for us because it gave us privacy (behind the succulent wall) and was a pretty good size! Only negative was there was no view...we had a small back patio that looked directly to another building. The staff here is really outstanding! We got a chance to... More

The Pearl is a super cute place with a really fun atmosphere! Here are my overall impressions with the hotel: Staff: Amazing! Very friendly and accommodating. When I checked in, I inquired if there were any upgrades to my room available. She said that they were very busy and did not have an upgrade available, but she gave me four... More

This place was awesome! More so for adults than kids. Very cool and retro themed atmosphere. Good local beers and good service. It looks like a great place for celebrating Bday parties! My favorite part was the beach balls in the pool.

Stayed here with friends over 4th of July weekend and absolutely loved it! We were greeted at the front desk by Kyla and knew immediately it would be a great place based on her bubby personality and excitement! The rooms were super cute and comfy! The pool was a great place to hang out and the cocktails were some of... More

Wonderful Staff with a great ambiance. Close to many of San Diego's tourist attractions. A great couples get away location or excellent for business trip. I will stay there again the only draw back is bed needs an upgrade

Awesome little gem of a place! Was hard to find at first, if you blink you'll miss it. Heard this place was a great place to catch a drink and take a dip in the pool. So we headed over on the 4th to check it out.. I never wanted to leave! We were greeted by the friendliest staff ever.... More

I'm a local in the area and love visiting The Pearl when I need a break! I am always greeted with an uplifting smile by Angie, the front desk associate. She is incredibly friendly but more importantly, she is genuine. I know when she asks how I'm doing or talks to me about my day, she's doing it out of... More

If you are into retro/design/kitsch/cool then this adorable little hotel is right up your alley. I stayed only one night but was very impressed by the warmth of the staff, the attention to detail given to room/hotel decor and the unique fifties/sixties style pool/bar area. VERY American, VERY hip and VERY affordable. No food until 4pm sadly but the bar... More

Bring your slippers, as the guest room floor coverings feel like steel wool. Rooms are very minimally decorated and dark. Replace those CFLs with LED bulbs. Nice, small outdoor sitting area beyond sliding glass doors. Hotel/restaurant is a party place, so tends to be noisy.
