It was late, we were still soaked from our trip to Sea World San Diego, and we didn't want to stay "just anywhere". My husband pulled into Embassy Suites Santa Ana and went in to see if there were vacancies while I browsed reviews. I read some horrifying reviews and before I could call to tell him to forget it, he came out with room keys in hand.
Some of the reviewers complaints were on target. There was no individual climate control in the rooms, and our room was a bit cold, especially with our wet clothes on. The internet was not free, as is common in most hotels these days. We only stayed the one night though, so we dealt with it. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept like babies. Hot water was plentiful, the pool,hot tub, and fitness room were great, and the made-to-order omelets in the breakfast room were fantastic. We opened the door to a small balcony off the bedroom and it solved the cold room problem nicely.
The final victory for us was the price. We were quoted $209 a night (it was a Tuesday night), but a military/government discount was available and we got the room for $125.
Overall, there were a couple of minor complaints, but we'd definitely stay again.
