“Great Spot”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

I stayed at The Pearl after seeing its great reviews online and also seeing that it was on a list of best affordable hotels in the country. It's definitely in a great location with extremely helpful staff. The highlight for me was probably the great food and drinks at the restaurant. Emily does a great job buying some great wines and the chef is great as well. I recommend the oysters as they were very fresh on two different occasions. The only drawback for business travelers(or anyone else) is that if you are on the second floor you have to lug all of your stuff up stairs outside to get there. This isn't a problem if you are young or able, but it could be for some people. Lastly, the beds are very low to the ground so if you have problems with your knees or anything similar, this is something too consider. All-in-all a great spot very close to the action in San Diego! I will be back on my next visit to San Diego.

We loved this little spot on our most recent trip out west. Never before have we stayed in such an awesome, retro boutique hotel! No detail went unnoticed, that's for sure. Excellent designs throughout! So convenient to have the restaurant and bar on site. With such delicious options, we had a hard time picking what to order! Just a tip, SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT!! Will definitely return! I'd love to go back to eat and stay again, but i really want to go for the dive-in movie night, too!

Just got back from a 4 night stay at The Pearl with my fiance. Very cool little spot for a great price. Had a neat retro vibe to it. Good location and great staff. All were very friendly. Two of the front desk agents let me use their computer to print some things out. The movie nights are a great idea. Fun thing to do if you are wanting to stay in and eat at the restaurant, which was very good by the way. My only complaint was the shower head was at about chin height for me and I'm not THAT tall. No big deal though. Will definitely consider staying here on our next visit to San Diego.

Didn't actually stay at this hotel, but a group of us came for the Dive In Movie Night -poolside. It was a fun and memorable night. The staff was fabulous and very accommodating. We had such a pleasant experience, we are already planning our next movie night there. :)

We were here for 1 night and we loved it! Great service at check in and the staff was really friendly and welcoming. They also gave us tips right away about things to do in the area. The room and bathroom were spotless and the bed was very comfortable. We had a rental car and even though they didn't have any spaces available for us at the hotel we were able to find parking for free really easily close by. Was a great spot, close to everything and we would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great stay!

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this hotel, especially sipping cocktails by the pool in the evening while the Jetsons played on a movie screen. We are recent empty nesters and this hotel reminded us of what it is like to be young and carefree again!

Room Tip: Standard room was perfectly comfortable.

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.
