“stayed one night on way from San Diego to LA”
Reviewed 4 September 2011

We had to stay somewhere between San Diego and San Bernardino/LA and decided on this.
The hotel caters to business people more than tourists, but is modern and clean.
Ask for them to waive the parking fee.

It was a good stopover as we had to drive to San Bernardino the following morning.

Cost of room is a little pricey.

Overall a a good experience. Excellent breakfast in the morning. Quiet rooms, friendly personnel, decent gym.
One kind of disappointment is the beds. Not bad but softer than my taste and softer than average you find in hotels. Some people with back problems could have issues.
Bathrooms are nice, but possibly it would be time to update the showers' faucets.
Also another thing: great flat screens, but it's a shame the TV content is low resolution. It's true that almost all the hotels are like this, but with such TV screens, HD content would be really appreciated.
Keep in mind that most of the reservations do not include a $15 charge for parking. The honest thing is that you're warned at the check in too.

FIrst - this is a fairly typical Embassy Suites. Generally nice, spacious rooms, great breakfast and so on. The parking charges are a bit high but overall this is a newer property that meets what you would expect from an Embassy Suites.

During the week this is full of business travellers and the place is fine.

But...on the weekends the sales team here has apparently done a very good job selling groups. Specifically - the past two times I have stayed here the hotel has been full with youth sports teams, which is fine but the atrium has been LOUD until late at night and the kids running around the hotel have been an inconvenience. The management has made some attempt to deal with the noise problem (a sternly worded letter on the reception desk) but the effect has been negligible.

So - fine during the week, would not reccomend on the weekend (unless you happen to be with one of the groups!).

We plan for three nights to be in embassy suite for be in wedding in Irvine.
the Room in the hotel in like a suite. Rooms have Bedroom, small kitchen, bat room and living room with two sofa.
Bed room and bath room are clean enough like 4 star hotel but living room sofa need renewing.
This hotel is best solution for business trip specially if you need office for meeting. living room is also best place for family .
the worse points:
- You well be charge for you car parking and it is not fair.
- Hotel breakfast is very bad, pancakes are terrible, place is very small, only serve until 9:00, long queue line for omelet order and few items
- Hotel don't have have lobby
- Hotel don't have restaurant

We stayed here on July 30, 2011. I was a little disappointed that there was a $15 daily parking fee, but shame on me for not checking first. The parking garage has very tight parking spots, I don't know what you'd do if you had a Suburban. I don't think they'd fit in the spots. When we parked, a SUV broke the gate when he backed out because with his roof rack, he was too tall for the garage. I don't recall the clearance, but it was tight in height & the spots were tight.

When we checked in, around 10:30 PM, the front desk was just not friendly at all. Didn't offer any information. I had to ask where to park, where my room was, where breakfast was served, what time, etc. Just not what I have come to expect from Embassy.

When we began unloading our bags, we looked for a cart, but none were to be found. We had just driven 10 hours & were very tired. So we asked Mr. Friendly at the front desk for a cart & he said "Oh, yeah, we don't have any right now, there should be some down in a few minutes" So we waited & after about 10 minutes, we just decided to bring everything up ourselves. My husband said after we brought it all up, made a trip back to the car, drove around to the garage, parked the car & walked back to the lobby, they were just coming with the carts. Glad we didn't wait!

When we got to the room, we noticed there weren't any pillows on the pull out couch or in the closet. So we called the front desk & asked for pillows. We all got ready for bed, PJ's, brushed teeth, unpacked the cooler, etc the pillows still weren't there. It had been 30 minutes. We were tired from our long drive & just wanted to sleep, so we split the pillows on the king bed & cancelled the pillows.

The room itself was perfection. The beds, the pillows, the pullout bed could use a new mattress soon, but the room was perfect. Clean, spacious, nice furniture, remotes worked, bathroom was spotless, tvs worked great, blackout blinds were awesome, rooms were quiet, etc. Very nice. We found the elevators to run smoothly, we never had to wait very long for one.

The breakfast was wonderful. Cooked to order omelets, bacon, sausage, french toast, pancakes, oatmeal, toast, bagels, cereal, yogurt, fruit. Wonderful! The breakfast staff was very friendly, very accomodating, loved it! Now if they could only get equally friendly people working the front desk at night it would be a perfect hotel & would have reated it higher!

The main reason for choosing this hotel on our recent trip is the free shuttle to the UCI campus as we were touring the UC schools. We stayed in a large suite that has a living room plus 2 flat screen tvs, one in the bdrm and one in the LR. Suite and hotel were well maintained and clean. There is also a small but adequate gym for guests use. Breakfast in particular was good! You can order your omelet / pancakes and/or get sausages/potatoes from the 2 cooks behind the counter. Not buffet style where food is pre cooked, sitting there in re heated plates; plus people tend to be wasteful when they are at a buffet. We thought the arrangement was very efficient!
