We stayed in 2305 Surf Side Shores. We stayed the 2nd week in November. Building was quiet and almost empty. The lobby was always very clean and there are luggage carts (a huge plus when traveling with 5 people and bringing your own food). Our condo was amazing. It had everything you could ever need with the exception of trash... More

We rented Surfside Shores 1602 through Gulf Shores Rentals. In a word... Yuck. Please note that units in this complex are individually owned and rented through various people and companies -- this review ONLY pertains to unit 1602 and Gulf Shores Rentals. Although there were signs that the unit had been "cleaned", we found dirt and hair all over bathroom... More

What I absolutely love most about this place is there are wide French doors in both the living area and master bedroom and you can wake up with one awesome view of the ocean! It's close enough to any restaurant and the grill's are easy to get to and use even with an elevator .......for the evenings you want to... More

Surfside Shores II #1902: View and location are great. Found delicious food close by. Condo needs numerous repairs and maintenance that would take less than a month's profit and would make the condo much more desirable: The front door is extremely hard to open - you have to push into it with shoulder to open and close all the way....

Thank You for your review of Surf Side Shores. As I'm sure you are aware, each condo is individually owned and maintained. Most of our owners have recently renovated their condo units. I'm sorry you selected one of the few that might still need some work. Many of the maintenance items that you mentioned are the responsibility of the management... More

our condo was great. Upon arriving the elevator was broke and several people had to pack their luggage up flights of stairs. It was fixed before we had to do so thank heaven we were on 8th floor. Throughout week elevator broke several times-this is building II. The worst problem was the pool. When we got there the pool had... More

Have stayed at Surfside Shores many times. Great location in Gulf Shores. Condos are owner rented or agency rented. You can save yourself lots of money by renting directly through the owners. Each condo is decorated differently, so it depends if the owner keeps up the unit. We LOVE Gulf Shores and enjoy staying at Surfside Shores. We haven't ever... More
