I travel a lot for work and am always looking for interesting places to stay that aren't your average Marriott or Holiday Inn. The Pearl is my new favorite San Diego stay (just edging out Hotel Vyvant). The Pearl is small and adorable. It's got this cozy, beachy, mid-century vibe that's very welcoming. Once you're through the door, it's like...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 August 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 was a very clean and friendly place to stay for the night. I recently did a fishing trip out of San Diego harbor and needed a place close by to lay my head. This little boutique hotel fit the bill. The room was very clean and the staff very friendly. I got into the room and found the...

Needed a hotel close to airport and from the reviews this sounded interesting. The food is very good and the wait staff are attentive, the bartender came over to our table to discuss a dessert drink after we mentioned to our waitress our indecision on what to order. The room was comfortable but faced the street, which is very busy...

My daughter and I had a wonderful two-night stay here November 23-24th. The service - at the concierge, restaurant and bar, and housekeeping - was consistently excellent. They're super nice and helpful. Our room (#20) was beautiful and had the perfect view of the Wednesday night movie. The mid-century modern decor and ambiance is top-notch, from the lounge/game area's shag...

I have stayed at The Pearl 2x and it will continue to be my first choice when visiting San Diego. To begin, everyone at the reception desk was friendly and professional. They aren't fixed to their desks and seem to carry many hats in their position. The hotel doesn't have a "traditional" lobby, but has a cozy sitting area near...

Love this place, where we have been staying when visiting family in San Diego. It's quirky and stylish. The Happy Hour food, drinks, and ambiance : great. Well located, too. Meghan was especially helpful, as were all the staff. Can't wait to come back here.

The Pearl has a great location, retro rooms, and great staff. This is an updated location much like an Ace or a boutique hotel. They have done it in an ideal fashion. They show fantastic movies by the pool. The restaurant bar is inviting and gives you a nice place to socialize. The pool area is chic with log stools....

The room was lovely, service was great, and it was cozy and comfortable. In no time at all I got to know the staff because it is a small hotel, 23 rooms only. The size gives the hotel an intimate, family oriented feeling. I will return.

What can I say about the Pearl, GREAT little place, stayed 27 and 28th Sept 2016. Pool was smaller than expected, but still good! Restaurant and bar were superb. Only issue is parking? but you can always park in the side streets for free? would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Thanks for your mighty fine review! Parking is definitely a little different than other hotels because we only have 10 actual spots on property ($12 a night) but luckily there is FREE residential parking all around the hotel. Happy to hear you got to enjoy our restaurant and bar. Hope to have you back soon!
