“We keep coming back!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

Our girls soccer team started coming to Embassy Suites since 2009 for tournaments. Their price usually is higher that other hotels but it is well worth the extra money spent.
To start:

a) Breakfast- Our favorite is the Cooked to order breakfast that is included. They offer a wide variety of food to please from ages 1 to 101 (no joke). The staff is exemplary. They keep everything clean and well stocked. They work quickly.

b) Complimentary Manager's Reception - Each night from 5:30 to 7:30 they serve beverage and light snacks. I especially love the fresh veggie sticks.

c) Washer /Dryer - Another great reason we choose Embassy suites is that they have washer and dryer in each floor and it's FREE, just bring your detergent. This is a must for sports teams as we need to wash uniforms.

d) Excellent Staff- As a team, we have to book from group sales. They always understand the complications of booking as a team so they work with us in terms of timing and commitments. Their entire staff is friendly from Check-in to maid service.

e) Suites size - All their suites are roomy. Which includes the normal. (Fridge, coffee maker, irons etc..) The entire set-up of the hotel is there's no hidden hallways. One wouldn't have to worry about the children as you can see everything right outside your suite door. The kids hang out in the beautiful Atrium.


I probably shouldn't have rated this high as they may get too popular that we may not get the rooms we want when we need them. Although I have to share our great experiences in this hotel. Our children has had great memories here. Well done Embassy Suites La Jolla.

Room Tip: Choose a corner room as they are roomier.

For an excellent price - 2 room king suite, TV in both rooms, complimentary evening reception including cocktails, complimentary hot breakfast buffet cooked to order. We went to La Jolla for an early morning procedure at the hospital the next morning. We have stayed in a number of other hotels in La Jolla and Del Mar, and for the price, this was the best.

I was here for a family reunion so our entire family stayed here. The rooms are not the nicest but are clean and comfortable. Since they are all suite style setups, they're all very roomy so it's perfect for a family stay.

It's great that a really breakfast is included in the room cost. There's hot foods, made to order omelettes and pancakes, cold foods and hot and cold drinks. It's definitely chaotic during breakfast because there's always so many people, but you kind of have to expect it because of the choices and that it's included with your room cost. Happy hour was nice too because it was a great chance for us to relax with everyone before dinner and grab some snacks and drinks, which were also included with the room cost. Not nearly as chaotic as breakfast but still a lot of people.

It's a real pain though if you have a room right in front of the elevators because if you sleep in the living room area on the sofa bed, you can clearly hear the elevator ding every time and all the people talking as they go in and out of the elevators so I recommend you ask specifically not to be near the elevators if anyone in your room is going to sleep on the sofa bed.

There's an indoor pool, which is nice if you have kids who like the water. As with any indoor pool, it's humid and smells like chlorine, but it's clean. The workout room is connected to the pool. I never went inside the workout room, but from what I saw from the pool area, it looked small but clean and had at least one of all the basic stuff you'd really need to get whatever type of exercise you want.

The location is very convenient and safe because it's right across from the UTC mall, which is just your typical mall with department stores, a food court, etc. But they renovated this mall some years ago and the main courtyard is really nice. They have a live singer there a few days a week and really comfortable seating to relax and take in the great weather. It's not in downtown la jolla, but close enough where you can drive to downtown in 10 minutes. It's equidistant to the two major freeways, the 5 and the 805 so you can get anywhere really easily.

Parking in the garage was easy. There was never a shortage of spaces when we were there.

The only problem we had (and it was sort of a big problem) was when we reserved the rooms, we reserved a handicap accessible room for my grandparents. When we checked in, we confirmed with the front desk that their room was the correct type of room. When we got to the room, it was a regular room. So we had to bring my grandparents back downstairs to switch rooms. The second room was the "correct" room but it was a pretty pathetic excuse for a handicap accessible room in terms of the bathroom. It was just a regular bathroom but they bolted a bench to one end of the bathtub. Not only that, but they bolted it in such a way that the shower curtain couldn't wrap around the tub all the way so water would just pour over the edge of the tub when someone would sit on the bench and use the shower. The bed was also equally as high off the ground as the regular room beds, which is pretty high, so my grandma had to use an ottoman as a way to climb into bed. Embassy Suites ended up giving us a free night stay voucher for any Embassy Suites so at least they kind of tried but it still sucked for my grandparents, who are in their 90s, so I felt pretty bad for them.

I've stayed here once before this and I'd stay here again if I'm with my kid but probably not if it's just me or if my grandparents are with us.

My husband and I stayed her for a week of vacation in San Diego. Our room was clean and comfortable. A typical Embassy Suites property. We really enjoy having a separate bedroom and having the kitchen amenities. The hotel seemed to be very busy. Breakfast was rather chaotic as well as during the snacks in the afternoon. We were always able find on street parking for our rental car and avoid the fees through the hotel. Convenient location to explore the San Diego area.
