Our flight arrived around 11pm and our late check in was handled quickly and with a friendly face! The room was clean and a minimalistic's dream come true. We even had a pet fish named Scooter that kept us company in the room. A quick 10 min drive to everything and very peaceful and quiet location! I would definitely stay...

We stop by for 1 night to rest in our way to Mexico and this small hotel they have an excellent costumer service. The rooms are small but very clean and each room has a fish and my husband and my self just love it. I feel comfortable recommending this hotel without a doubt.

I grew up in San Diego and moved away about 5 years ago now. My wife and I flew down to spend some time with our family and I decided to stay here because I loved getting drinks at The Pearl when I lived in SD. BIG MISTAKE. This place is on its last leg. They are not interested in...

I booked a two night stay at the Pearl hotel at the end of my vacation to San Diego. The website and the reviews sounded so positive and looked like a place i would like to stay. Well i was wrong. I'm always struck by how people and places put up a facade that they are a cool place to...

My wife and I came for the night and enjoyed our stay. The room was nice and the overall vibe is cool. If you are looking for high end accommodations, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a cool place to rest your heads, at a fair price, this is your spot.

Everything about the Pearl hotel has exceeded my expectations. Whilst at first glance from the outside I was uncertain... inside is a fabulous team that gives this quirky little hotel a big heart. It is one of the very few hotels I have ever been to on business that I would voluntarily stay longer in. All the staff were very...

I stayed one night at this hotel - booked it "blind" through another site. You should check in early to get an on-site parking space and you'll have to pay for it, but it's worth doing. Otherwise, street parking and it's difficult to come by. The hotel has a European or 60s feel. The rooms are comfortable and well-appointed but...

We loved it here. The place was perfect for us as a young couple. There was stuff going on, and events. We loved the "Dive In Movie Night". Paul at the bar was wonderful. The food was amazing. The room was perfect size and had all the amenities we were looking for. There are really good restaurants within walking distance....
