If you can find the right owners that take pride in their place..don't let it go. Unit 785 just keeps getting better every time we go. It is always very clean, the owners are always available to answer any questions or find the answer for you. It is updated and we just always feel right at home. I hate to... More

The floor was dirty, had to wear shoes in the condo the whole time. There were "splatter" marks of some kind on the wall and baseboard in the bathroom and in the kitchen (the cleaning service should have cleaned it because it was very noticeable). Just didn't seem clean at all. The parking is horrible.. The Sea N Suds and... More

Upon my arrival I discovered the Boardwalk Condo Unit 382 was out dated, then many defiencies were discovered. It is evident these things have existed for an extended time. Couch was damaged and uncomfortable, both bath vanity's held together with duct tape, had to kick balcony door to open and would not lock (Sign posted to lock when you leave),... More

I wouldn't recommend this condo. It was very dirty. Fridge door wouldn't shut unless you took out the bottom shelf in the door. The bathrooms were disgusting. Mildew everywhere. Toilet wouldn't flush. Vacuum wouldn't work, we tried to use it to clean up all the sand on the floors. Parking was terrible. We never got to park at the condo.... More

I am incredibly picky about where we stay on vacations. I obsess over the cleanliness, check reviews, etc. With this being our first time in Gulf Shores I was even a bit more worried. Now, we travel ALOT, so for me to find a place I am 100% satisfied is incredibly difficult. The condo was so clean, stocked, and maintained.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the boardwalk. They unit was nicely decorated and was clean. we did not find parking to be a problem as stated in other reviews. The owner of the unit was very helpful and quick to respond to any messages we sent him. I look forward to my next chance to stay in 587

Here is the list of things that I was not happy with while staying at the Boardwalk. These are all things that should of been taken care of before the unit is rented. Not after and hope nobody says anything. During my research of reviews I found where several of these issues were addressed in other reviews on August 7,... More

The condos are a good deal as they are close to the beach, have a decent sized pool, and a good seafood restaurant in walking distance. The downside is that every time you are outside it smells like fried fish, and parking is a hassle with a very small lot for the hotel and restaurant valet traffic. The building could... More

We have stayed in Gulf Shores since the 80s. We owned a condo and got down several times during the year. Early 90s we sold our condo but continued to come down once a year and rented at that time. For the past several years we stayed in Sea Winds. While we loved the condo itself we could not deal... More

We stayed in unit 181. The first thing we noticed was the smell in our unit. Just OLD smelling and yuck. The unit is very outdated. Needs a remodel. Both bathtubs have issues. The bedding is old and needs replaced. The mattresses are HARD AS A ROCK! There were spiderwebs, a dead spider, and eggs attached to pillow in one... More
