I came to The Pearl on business and was pleasantly surprised. The decor was very well done, the front desk gal Jen was personable and helpful and the food was great! I was also told they have dive-in-movies during the summer which is a great idea. The fish in my room was a nice touch! I definitely will come back!

I had the honor of staying at The Pearl Hotel after a friend recommended this lovely establishment. I was ever so pleased with every amenity, from the exquisite dinner to the quaint rooms. The pool area had a vintage feel with modern touches that I adored. As for my stay I would say it was quite the time and I...

We LOVED The Pearl Hotel! Staff was extremely helpful, especially Jen at the Front Desk. We also received great treatment at the restaurant, and the food was to die for! We will definitely visit this cool retro hotel, it totally took us back in time!

Locals and out of towners love this property and here's why: the staff's skills, warmth and attention to detail. The property is a quaint, 1950's style motel that has been undated to a chic oasis in Point Loma. It has a hip theme and style that attracts people that enjoy craft cocktails and creative food served by people that clearly...

The Pearl Hotel is great for a Sunday Brunch pool outing. The decor is modern and hip with some 60's flare. The food is delicious and the service is good. The poolside plays great tunes and great to relax with a cocktail in the sunshine. A def must try, and they have fun movie nights on wednesdays! Check it out!

The Pearl is a very nice hotel with clean rooms and good service. It has a pool and restaurant but no breakfast arrangements, only coffee from the bar. That is not a major problem because there is a grocery shop ("Ralph's") within walking distance, where you can get provisions. I had a ground floor room with a patio where I...
