Great 2 night stop, very friendly and helpful. Helped us celebrate our wedding anniversary and last nights in America wonderfully. Rooms not huge but perfectly adequate for a couple of nights, and clean and comfortable. Close to good fish restaurants and good food in the restaurant by the pool watching the Wednesday night film. Yes, there is a little bit... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2016

First and foremost The Pearl Hotel is not a hotel. It is an experience, a "Groovy" experience anyone there may say. An experience wrapped around a ground level swimming pool accented by a lively bar and dinning area. Fact is the front desk is next to the bar and if this in itself is not inviting to you the food...

What a Groovy little boutique hotel. The bar/restaurant are where it's at! Great food, inventive cocktails and Wednesday movie night were definitely not to be missed. Clean rooms and an outgoing friendly staff rounds out a fantastic stay. The Harbor Town pub, just blocks away, had a fantastic breakfast burrito!

We tried the Pearl because it sounded different and fun. It is both. Our room was clean, comfy, nicely decorated, and good sized. We had dinner at their restaurant - BBQ tri tip was amazing. We each had a dessert and they were excellent. We also had a night cap at their bar while their "dive in movie" was being... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Pearl on our last night in San Diego. We wish we had stayed there for our whole visit! The staff was wonderful! We loved our room. We had a first floor room with a little patio. It was so relaxing and the slider with a screen gave us a nice flow of fresh... More

We stayed for two nights at this hotel and what a pearl! The staff are uber friendly and can't do enough to help! We had a slight problem with the window of our hotel room not shutting, we didn't realise until halfway through our first night and mentioned the problem the next morning! The window was fixed straight the way... More

We've stayed twice at this very cool hotel in the last two months. The staff is awesome, the cocktails amazing. Dinner was excellent. If you pay full price here, your just not trying. Room discounts, happy hour snacks and great deals on drinks. Stay once and they'll offer you a 15% discount on your next visit. Yeah, its retro. It's... More

The pearl is more of a motel than hotel although the rooms are decorated very nicely and there is a comfortable king sized bed. The bathrooms are fairly basic and could do with updating, The bar and restaurant area is very nice, we didnt eat there but had a drink during their 4-6 happy hour which I would definitely recommend....

Look! I'm old enough to remember hotels like the Pearl that weren't retro. So if you got an old lodging, you can raze it and rebuild, hang your head and go with it, or act like it's the coolest place in the world. The folks at the Pearl chose door number 3. Like this place is a trip. It's got... More
