“Top Notch Hospitality”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Wonderful rooms surrounding a great restaurant. I've been eating and drinking at The Pearl for years and it never disappoints. Plates and drinks are on par with some of the best in town. What's different about The Pearl is that they do it in a fun and unique way, completely void of pretension. Finally had the opportunity to stay in one of the poolside rooms. Much like the feel of the restaurant the rooms have a vintage charm with all the modern comforts and amenities you'll ever need (I was tempted to steal a pillow). If you're a fan of one of a kind boutique hotels stay at the pearl, relax by the pool, have a drink and treat yourself to a fantastic dinner.

This hotel is reminiscent of European pensions. Very different than the website pictures. Goldfish in each room. Very noisy until about 11 pm due to proximity of the bar. Great swim in tiny pool in am.

Room Tip: Be prepared for different - not your Hilton/Holiday Inn experience - but cheap :)

Thank you for staying with us at The Pearl. We are definitely not like the big box/chain hotels. We are a family owned boutique hotel that strives to provide top notch guest service and quality accommodations. Very sorry to hear about the noise challenge on the evening you stayed with us. Hope you will consider giving us another try in the future. Make it a great day.

What a hidden gem! It was such a great stay and the service was above and beyond - the entire staff was extremely helpful, especially Meghan at the front desk who checked us in! We loved the style of the rooms (we had mirrors on the ceilings!) and the atmosphere of the restaurant at night. We went with our servers recommendation and the brussel sprouts are to die for! We cannot wait to come back on a Wednesday night for movie night!

Room Tip: Request a room with a patio/balcony!

This place is awesome. The rooms are awesome, the people at the front desk are beyond awesome, and don’t get me started on the food and drinks. What a great vibe and experience. I will definitely be back!

We recently stayed here for a friends wedding and it was amazing! The service we had was unforgettable. The front desk girl that checked me in was Jen and she was very knowledgable about the area and places to go see and do in between the wedding. And the bartender made some awesome drinks. We enjoyed our stay very much. The only thing I would say they could change is their parking situation and some kind of breakfast with their awesome coffee but other than that I would definitely come again.

I was there several years ago and I have always planned to come back. From the restaurant that uses local produce, breads and meats, to lying in a pool and watching a movie at the 'dive-in' screen it was a wonderful place to not worry about the logistics of travel. It's homey in all the right places, refined as well. The staff all speak English (surprise!) and go out of there way to make you feel welcome. Wonderful moment: lying in a hammock next to the pool in the early morning cool, reading a book when a staff member calls across the pool 'you need more coffee?' and then trots around the pool with a carafe for a refill.
The room was nice with a platform bed and comfortable amenities. I need to get back here and not leave for a few days.

Room Tip: The ones on the back hall are quieter. If you have a car, pick one that is on ground level so you c...

This hotel was cute and trendy. Great Restaurant on-site offering movie night every night on the outside screen over the pool. Short stay but had an awesome experience! They also had beach cruisers for guests to use while staying there.
