We chose the Embassy Suites in La Jolla due to the location - not to mention the free hot breakfast.
The hotel was nice, clean, and the staff friendly. There was construction going on downstairs - currently the gift shop and lobby area are undergoing renovations. We did not hear construction noises so that was good.
The room was very spacious with a separate living room/office area and then the bedroom. I couldn't find the fridge/microwave at first but they are hidden behind a set of doors between the two rooms.
We did not eat in the hotel restaurant but we did have the free hot breakfast both mornings we were there. They offered omelettes, waffles, pancakes, bacon, sausage, breakfast potatoes, pastries, cereals, bagels, and fresh fruit and other things that I can't recall!!
We actually extended our stay by one night. Our request was promptly taken care of and we even were given the promotional rate for the 2nd night as well.
The only negative about our stay was the sound of little kids running around downstairs in the atrium/lobby level early in the morning. The sound really carries and it seems that parents had no control over their little "cherubs" in the morning. (And we had our daughter with us so I'm not anti children! ) Oh, and our room keys kept getting deactivated for some reason. (they were not touching anything that would cause that to happen!)
The pool was indoor and on the small side. It was a bit crowded when we ventured there in the afternoon. However, it was still functional.
The hotel is across the street from a mall (University Town Center) that has a lot of shops and restaurants. There is a PF Changs Restaurant in the same parking lot as the hotel - we ate lunch there one afternoon.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.
