Stayed at the Emabssy Suites La Jolla for 8 days along with 5 other families, all with kids ranging from 2-18.
Location: 20 minutes from every attraction in San Diego, 1 mile from Hwy 5. Hotel is located directly across the street from large mall (150+ stores). It shares a parking lot with PF Changs. 2 major strip malls with McDonalds, CVS, Baskin Robbins, Supermarkets ect... are located within 3 blocks (10 minute walk). On of the most beautiful churches you will ever see was less then a mile away. Was even nicer at night when it was lit up.
PARKING IS NOT AN ISSUE: we had 5 cars and had no problem parking on the street at all hours of the day & night.
Property is nothing special, located in area with office buildings. Small fountain and nice landscaping as you approach. 3 story parking garage off to the side. Inside lobby had nice ponds with large coi fish. Several large screen TV's had sporting events on all night.
Pool is small, but served its purpose. Plenty of towels all day and night. Pool closed at midnight. Sauna and hot tub were clean. Gym was small but again, served its purpose.
Rooms were spacious and clean. Only negative would be the loud air conditioning units cycling on & off. Refrigerator was not working but maintenace brought up a new unit in under 5 minutes. Towels were plentiful & house keeping did a great job all week. Rooms had blowdryer, iron & board, coffee machine & microwave. 2 TV's, No in room safe, but you could get a safety box down at front desk.
Washer & dryer were free and available pretty much all the time. Great perk !
Complimentary breakfast was good ever day. Never waited more then 5-7 minutes on line for cook to order omlettes. Always plenty of food. Good selection of frenchtoast, pancakes, eggs, cereal, pastries, fresh fruit, yogurts, oatmeal & 4 different juices, 5 different teas. Breakfast was a great value, only drawback was that it ended at 930 on weekdays (would prefer 10am) 1030 on weekends. Finding table was never an issue and the dining area was kept clean by freindly & smiling workers.
Complimentary Happy Hour 530-730PM every nite was another great value. Nothing like coming in from sightseeing all day and grabbing a cold bud light or killians.
The hotel seems to cater to alot of families, would have loved to seen a room set up with video game, ping pong table ect... Think security guards would appreciate that as well as they were chasing kids all weekend long. lol
Overall, the Embassy Suites La Jolla was a great value. It wouldnt have been my choice of hotel being that it was 20 minutes away from most attractions, however it was easy to get to and never any traffic. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would reccommend this hotel to other families.
Only 10 minutes from La Jolla Coves where you can go kayaking to the caves. Also worth the short drive at sunset to "Childrens Pool" where you can also see seals & sealions hanging out on the rocks.
Seaworld was nice, San Diego Zoo was over rated (Bronx Zoo much nicer) Petco Park is beautiful baseball stadium. Old Town was nice with good Mexican Restaurants, Little Italy was Little. Only several blocks long and located on India Street, still cant figure that out??? Gaslamp Section was nice. Bay Front was nice. Coronado is definetly worth a day trip. Beaches of Southern California are over rated. Miami Beach & Florida beaches blow them away. Water is warmer, sand is whiter & softer. San Diego was a nice, small & clean city. Glad I had opportunity to visit.
