Enjoyed the room we were in (I believe these units are individually owned, and we happened to get a nice one), but they need to make some improvements on the property. The building was without electric for almost 6 hours one day due to repairs being made, and the only notification was a paper sign on the front door...no staff contacted guests in advance and even gave a guesstimate as to how long it would be. As a result, we had to schlep up and down 7 floors most of the day. The stairwells are very narrow and completely unsafe in a loss of power situation as practically none of the emergency lighting was working...it was pitch black. We had to go to the underground garage to get a flashlight from our car and nearly killed ourselves getting there. Couldn't see the hand in front of your face, so unsafe! Definitely not up to code, which makes you wonder about other aspects of the property.
The St. Clements pool needs some work too and the pool bar there was closed the entire time (in August).
Overall, we would stay here again for the right price and the same room. It was nice to be at the northern end of the beach too as you're not in the middle of a billion people, maybe only a million. ;)
