Like many other reviews, I will agree that the location is great. It is not great enough to merit the awful quality of the unit we stayed in. ALL the dishes in the unity were filthy. The refrigerator was rusting on the side. The sheets in one of the bedrooms were FULL of sand. Lampshades, sinks, and coffee table were... More

Boardwalk is located on the beach, just a few blocks from Hwy 59 in Gulf shores. The beach is beautiful; pool is great. Parking is limited, with overflow lot across the street. My family group rented several condos. Ours, Unit 181, was clean and comfortable, but outdated. However, when we complained about a sticking door, management had it fixed within... More

We stayed in unit 587 at the Boardwalk in July of 2013. It is a corner condo with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It was clean, beautifully decorated with a beach theme, and a very pleasant place to stay. Air conditioner worked great. The roomy balcony has a fine view of the pool, boardwalk to the sand, and the beach.... More

We've stayed at the Boardwalk a few times. The location is the best in Gulf Shores. We walked to many restaurants, especially Sea-N-Suds, Waffle House, and the Pancake House at the Best Western. There are many more within walking distance. Unit 684 is a nice 1 bedroom 1 bath. It seems to be recently updated with newer appliances, cabinets and... More

This particular unit (884) is outdated & in very bad condition, not exactly the romantic location we were hoping for. The first thing you notice when you walk in is the huge hole in the wall next to the door & the broken plastic "guard". The door looks like someone tried to break "out" of the unit from the inside-the... More

My daughter and I booked this condo on a "name your price" site. We got the "CONDO" for 59.00 per night for 3 nights. After our fees it was about $215.00 for the stay. Not unreasonable for a CONDO on the beach. Once we checked in however, we were informed of a $149.90 surcharge by Suncoast Realty. This made the... More

I stayed here with my family for a week in June 2012. We rented through Alabama Beach Vacation Rentals, unit 683. I chose Boardwalk because the price was fair, I liked the location on the east end of the beach, near the state park, and because the pool is on the beach side of the building rather than facing the...

First and foremost, I think people need to keep in mind that the individual condos are owned by individuals. The building itself is older, but seems to be well kept. The elevators were always in working order, and when the wind blew open one of the glass doors and shattered it, the staff there had it fixed immediately. The pool... More

This place is great, its right on the beach and right in front of Sea-N-Suds the best place to eat in Gulf Shores. We love to stay here every year. Highly recommend it!
