Yes. I have stayed at both the Pearl and the Best Western.The Best Western is fine.Nice exterior,nice grounds.The rooms are basic Best Western,not fancy, but clean and reasonably priced.
I have actually stayed at three hotels in town.The other one being the Majestic View.I like the building.Like a hunting lodge.Views are great from the balconies.Request an upstairs room in building 200 or 300 for the best views.
I was thinking about your question on my bike ride up to Laguna Beach.You are actually talking apples and oranges in terms of lodging.Desert Pearl is more high end,hardwood floors,concrete countertops,cast iron tubs,bidets.
Best Western is linoleum,formica,and fiberglass tubs.I build homes,so I tend to think in that regard.Both are fine,depends on what you want.
I was in that town a month ago and in my spare time I poked into most every motel there. There's not a bad one anywhere! The lowest priced ones are usually the oldest (and smallest).
The prices vary by the amount of luxury. Also, the more upscale places will have a sliding glass door to a balcony with a BIG view of the red rock mountains.
