My husband and I were going to San Diego for a quick overnight stay and decided to just go for a cheap option since we wouldn't be spending much time in the hotel. I saw that The Pearl got great reviews and that it was incredibly inexpensive (I think we paid $69 for the night!). I wasn't expecting much, but it was a great little hotel! It looks like it's basically a renovated motel from the 50's - a bunch of rooms surrounding a pool in the courtyard. They've done such a good job of fixing it up and making it comfortable and very unique. I would recommend going up one level from the basic room because you'll get a much nicer, upgraded bathroom. But you really can't go wrong with any of them.
One thing not to be missed is the restaurant. It was one of the best meals ever! They have different theme nights during the week, so just be sure to see if they have the full menu, but everything we had was amazing.
The location isn't RIGHT by anything we really wanted to see, but it's a quick drive (under 10 minutes) to downtown or the beaches (PB, OB, Mission Beach, etc.)
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who likes a hotel with more personality than the big chains.
