initial impression - disappointing as not actually in San Diego and on Sunday night the bar is closed and even residents can't get a drink - surely they could change this??? So not a great start but then the next day it came alive and we had a lovely dinner and drinks in a really buzzy place. The rooms are very nice and clean and well -refurbed. We thought the fish in bowls a little unnecessary.

I spent two nights at The Pearl and enjoyed it thoroughly. I loved the platform bed. I loved Wolfgang the fish being there; his fishbowl on the wall. The bathroom was great. There was an ironing board and iron as well as a blow dryer. Great coffee was in the lounge in the morning. Everyone I dealt with were extremely friendly; especially David who helped me find a T-shirt that fit! I definitely recommend The Pearl and will stay there again when in San Diego.

This is an old motel that has been renovated. It's on a busy road so from 5 am the traffic noise is constant! Staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious, modern and spotlessly clean.

Quick 1 day getaway from kids and day-to-day adult issues, this is the place to go. They gave us drinks upon arrival and welcomed us with open arms. David made some great recommendations, that not even as a local I knew about. My wife also said David was very helpful carrying her suitcases up and down the stairs and he was friendly and humble as can be; the hotel does not have an elevator so may be a downside for some. The food was great, rooms were clean and atmosphere was F U N!

I loved the hotel, and was going to give 5 stars. However, I was troubled by the decision to keep a Siamese Fighting Fish in a small , undecorated bowl halfway up the wall of the room.

Don't be put off by the look on the outside, inside the rooms are modern and comfortable. Air con is a bit loud and old fashioned but the Japanese fighting fish on the wall was an unusual and fun touch. What made this hotel great are the lovely staff who spent time to make sure we found great restaurants and excursions. Would recommend it ... Read more

Great place to stay. Stayed for three nights whilst touring California for two weeks. Rooms very good and value for money. The happy hour and food down at the bar are awesome. Staff very sociable. Cocktails are great. Hotel has character. Hotel not for people who want a quiet stay during the day as all rooms located around the pool area. Will definitely be back if staying in San Diego again.

One of the really good things about having to visit SD for work on a regular basis is always staying at the Pearl - not least as the hotel itself succeeds in being such a mellow and relaxed place to be based out of for both guests and locals (it's always a good sign when people stop by just because it's genuinely a fun place to hang out), but the real gold star goes to the welcome you get for the entire duration whenever you stay there, we're repeat visitors to many places but not one of these h...

I have stayed at The Pearl in San Diego's Point Loma a number of times, generally when I traveled alone. There are any number of reasons to adore this refurbished 1960s-ish motel, but what I love about it the most is how, even when I am on my own, I feel absolutely comfortable and at home there. Often, I am traveling from San Diego International Airport (about 10 minutes away) early the next morning, so just want to chill the night before. Hence my vast appreciation of The Pearl's fab on-site... Read more

Jetson's Modern Miami is the best way for me to describe this hotel--we had a nice sized room with an outdoor sitting area and sitting area in the room. The decor felt modern/futuristic to me?!, yet with desert touches...and the size of the hotel makes me think of the quaint properties in Miami. I loved all the thoughtful touches! We received a welcome email a few days out, 2 cupcake bobbles in our room for free drinks, a postcard with a welcome note on the bed, and who doesn't love a fish ... Read more

In town for a couple of nights, picked this hotel from the TA reviews. easy to find, not too far from the airport, parking spots for a fee on property or free if you park in the neighbourhood. I must say that the staff here are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The hotel is retro cute, the bar was hopping when we got there. Our room was great, nice size bed, comfy, pillows were good, clean, nice size patio with chairs and table. Had iron and board, blow dryer, IPhone charge station, but did ... Read more

I LOVED this place. super cute fun room, kind of art deco, kind of hip... this is one of the few hotels where i have stayed where the web site looks like what you get. Very small property. cute pool for sun bathing. VERY good restaurant and bar. I will def look for this place again when i'm in town.

I can not tell you how much my boyfried and I love The Pearl. It is our Staycation getaway and our place to go for some swanky fun. This last visit was another of our reunion visits when my boyfriend returns from business in Tonga (halfway around the world). As preferred members I have always enjoyed the little perks...little bobbers for complimentary drinks..the postcard welcoming us back...the dive in theater. What more could be said...well this last visit was way beyond the best we have had. ... Read more

First of all, this tiny hotel is a real credit to a sketchy, low end neighborhood. It's kind of a crummy part of town and this is the one bright star. It's clean, presents well and I hope it kicks off an urban renewal trend in an area desperately in need of it. My review which follows is for the restaurant and bar only. I met a colleague here as it was his choice. He did not bother to tell me that this hotel has no parking at all. Okay, one space which was marked "reserved". It's in a resident... Read more

We stayed at the Pear for two nights last week on our trip to San Diego. We were skeptical at first when we pulled up, and I mentioned to my husband that we would look at the rooms and then decide if we were staying. The reason is because the doors open to the outside, which I'm not a fan of. We opened the door to room number 14 and we were just in love. My friend had room 11. We were immediately at ease and felt very safe. The only way I can describe this place is funky cool. The beds sit on th... Read more

David greeted me and informed me my request and accommodations were ready. After check in, I was greeted in the bar/restaurant by the most friendly and professional staff.

We picked The Pearl because of the high ratings it received. I have to disagree with the high ratings. While the staff was friendly and went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome, the rooms were like I said in my title, "A Little Quirky". There was a Japanese fighting fish in a bowl high up on the wall (weird). They had an atomizer which made me think what are they covering up, and the bed was on a homemade wooden platform where the bottom was about a foot longer than the mattress. ... Read more

I booked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. I was in San Diego for a visit with my daughter. I was not sure what to expect but was very pleased with my experience at the Pear. As my title indicates it is a super cute, very cool, nice and clean little hotel. I loved the retro vibe (as did my 26 year daughter when she dropped by off/picked me up at the hotel. My room wasn't ready when we arrived but the staff was nice enough to offer us free drinks at the bar where we enjoyed a game of Sc... Read more

The staff here was really great and clearly made an effort to offer very personal service. You definitely don't feel like just another room number at a large hotel. We arrived towards the end of the Sunday brunch and there was definitely a party scene going- which is great unless you want to have some quiet pool time :) Only issue we had was VERY loud and inconsiderate numbers at night (like at 1am on a Sunday night)- which made me realize you can hear almost everything going on outside the ro...

I generally do not like staying in hotels, but my experience here changed all that. My wife and I stayed here for our Honey Moon and we were not disappointed. The staff was super helpful and accommodating. They really made our stay special and memorable. Loved that they were showing the Big Lebowski in the pool area. You can tell that the staff care and the management pays a lot of attention to detail. We loved the roommate that came with the room, ACE (he's a fish). The food and cocktails... Read more

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.

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.

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. Will definitely stay again.

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 the bar equipped with Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots and other board games. During happy hour and dinner service the lobby area is full of friendly hotel guests+locals. Fresh oy... Read more

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 carpeting to the pool. The green wall was a great surprise. The food and cocktails were excellent. Highly recommended.

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 so early rush hour traffic woke me up. This is not a cheap hotel and if you're looking for a deal near the airport for a night this isn't it. It has a relax and comf... Read more

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 television not working so I got with the front desk and they immediately addressed the issue. They gave me tokens for a couple drinks at their nice bar for the inconvenience. The bar and restaurant were al... Read more
