This is my first time staying at the Embassy Suites in La Jolla. It wasn't the first choice nor it was out of faint of the heart. However I will admit the loyalty program pays.

Most of the business travelers pick their stay based on the location. I am no exception. However keep in mind that the location of the hotel isn't a tourist hotspot, although La Jolla is about 10 miles to the west and the major tourist attractions are down south. What surprised me is that there are a lot of families here, which translates into lots of kids.

Guests aside, the hotel is clean, modern and very guest friendly. Free breakfast, 2-hour free drink daily, what else can you ask?

I stayed in the Executive suite. Upon check-in I was greeted by if not one of the most friendly staff I've ever met. Prompt service and makes me feel like a valued guest all the way. The room is very clean, nicely lay out and make me feel like home.

Now if you staying here on a weekend or peak-tourist periods, you will hear kids. Door closed or not. Some running some screaming, but if that bother you or not is up to you.

The bedroom on the other hand is like a standard hotel room but upgraded. Ceiling-to-floor window, comfortable bed and sheets. However if your room is facing the streets, prepare to hearing some car noises. Also the A/C unit can be loud. In my case it actually woke me up when it kicked in. However you can always keep it running to combat the outside noise but it's louder than comfortable level to sleep soundly, if you are a light sleeper.

Over all I suggest this hotel to those who wants to get a suite but don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it. However some noise problem might be important to those who likes peace and quiet. This hotel is more suitable for families than business-travelers.

Room Tip: Hate car noise? Ask for room away from street.

We have stayed at the other Embassy Suites in the San Diego area and this one is far nicer than the others. The room amenities as well as the maintenance of the room furniture seems to be new and not worn, did not have stains on the carpet, bathroom fixtures and tub not dingy. The location of this hotel is great. It is close enough for a drive to downtown La Jolla, but you avoid the traffic of getting in/out of that area. Plus, you are close to Balboa Park and across from a mall that has an indoor skating rink. The mall has some fast food options, but for a dining experience, I would go elsewhere. There is parking available on the street, so the parking of $20 overnight can be avoided. The housekeeping staff does an excellent job of daily cleaning with the attention to small details which is very impressive for an Embassy. We will definitely stay here again for the convenience of the location to all area attractions as well as the cleanliness of the rooms and attentive staff.

We were met with great help from the moment we arrived. We were immediately offered help with bags and a luggage cart. Check in was no problem, and very helpful. We were offered local info for restaurants and a map. Also staff was frank about the fact that you could easily park for free on the streets around the hotel and not pay for the ramp.

The room was comfortable, had a pull out couch and chair in a sitting room, as well as a desk. There was a wet bar, refrigerator and microwave. All worked well and things were clean.

The bathroom was nice sized, not too small. the bedroom had two comfy beds with nice linens.

There was a TV in each room - the front sitting room and back bedroom. You do have to walk through the sitting room to enter the bedroom, so if you have a child napping in the sitting room you may be trapped in the bedroom.

Free hot breakfast with cooked to order eggs/omlets each day. It was always busy but we always were able to find a place to sit, and there was plenty of food availble, nothing ran out. great free happy hour each night with beer and wine as well as some light snacks.

The room was quiet, and we were on the top floor which i think helped as well.

There was a great indoor pool, really a hot spot for kids and families. The hot tub was outside, just a few steps and great. Everyone was very friendly and helpful!!

Great location and access to shopping and highways. Rooms are clean, updated and the breakfast is the best for a hotel that includes breakfast.

The only downside is that it has many young kids, which at times could be a bit noisey and we found some of the furniture with pen scribbles

We are delighted that you enjoyed our full cooked to order breakfast… it truly is the best around! Embassy Suites San Diego – La Jolla is very kid friendly and such a great value that families tend to choose us over other area hotels. So on weekends and during our busy summer season you may experience many happy campers, but that’s what the complimentary cocktails offered at our evening Manager’s Reception are for!

This has been the best Embassy Suites we have stayed at. It was beautifully appointed, clean and the staff is very helpful and professional. The only inconvenience is parking. You have to pay for it and it is shared with the P.F. Chang's next door. Other than that, it is excellent. Be prepared to pay for it's beauty, too! What do yo expect in La Jolla?

What a joy to find a hotel that actually lives up to it's promises on their website. I'm usually at least a little, if not terribly disappointed when I arrive. But in this case I was anything but disappointed. the staff was outstanding! The location was excellent, close enough to I-5 to get anywhere very quickly. Situated in beautiful LaJolla, with many restaurants and shops within walking distance. Just close enough to the airport to make it very convenient, but without the airport noise. We will definitely stay here again. The only negative thing I can think of is the $20 per night parking fee, but there is plenty of street parking!
