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

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...

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

The best thing the Pearl has going for it is it's value. Just know that and you won't be disappointed. The staff was nice and the vibe was hip. The air conditioner was a bit noisy though. Other than that like I said it is a nice place to stay for the basics. Can't go wrong at the price point.

The Pearl in San Diego is a really nice place to stay. Staff is super friendly and the rooms are nice and clean with a beach theme. Small complaint about the shower, the shower head is pretty low so you have to squat to wash your hair. But dont let that spoil your fun!!

Stayed for 3 nights in room 14. Nice beach themed decor felt fresh and clean. Could have done with a fridge but as a substitute we were given a chillybin filled with ice each day. Also no coffee/tea facilities in room but coffee was readily available in bar area. Room was very noisy from bar area and traffic. Luckily we... More

We found this gem online and had a grand time during our weekend stay. David was a fantastic host and found us a ground floor room right by the pool. We loved the mid century vibe and the eclectic cuisine at the restaurant. I have recommended this place to many folks who like to stay in San Diego. We will... More

We loved everything about The Pearl Hotel. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and more accommodating. Our room was VERY clean. The bar was great as was the bartender! Loved the cocktails and enjoyed their happy hour. The food was amazing! Best fish taco I had on our trip. We used their bikes to ride along the harbor into... More
