The Pearl Hotel

1410 Rosecrans St., San Diego, California, 92106, United States

This previously vintage motel received a makeover, turning it into a retro-chic hangout decorated with kitschy lamps and original, in-room art by local children. Popular among young couples and solo business travelers, the hotel has guest rooms with only one bed, but they contain amenities like LCD flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Each room also comes with its own fishbowl; "Rocky" and "Bruce Lee" are two of the piscine residents. On Wednesday night, movies are projected on a screen behind the oyster-shaped saltwater pool, where hammocks and strong cocktails attract trendy locals. Staffers have a friendly, enthusiastic vibe.
