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

Thank you for the review of your stay at Surf Side Shores Condominiums. I personally rely heavily on frank and honest comments in TripAdvisor when traveling and I'm sure many others do. I can confirm that the elevator in one of our two buildings was out for about 20 minutes the day of your arrival and that the problem happened... More

Have stayed here twice, we love it! Janet and John Ruess are great owners, and take care of their unit, plus offer a closet full of extras, toys, beach chairs, umbrellas, floats! Can't wait to return next year;) The property is beautiful with several palm trees and two pools. You can view the dolphins from your balcony! We also went... More

The location is good and includes a pool and hot tub as well as wifi. Now for everything else. Upon arrival the elevator was broken, but was shortly repaired. We climbed the stairs to our condo, only to notice it was still being cleaned after official check in. No problem, we came back several minutes later to find the cleaning... More

It would be helpful to know which condominium unit was rented and also what rental company, if any, was involved, so that owner's and/or the rental agents can respond. There are no on-site... 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

Early June of 2014 was our second visit to Surfside Shores II. We stayed in unit 2501 and were very pleased. Two masters, both with balconies that can overlook the Gulf, the street side balcony wraps to the side enabling views of the strip and Gulf. The bedrooms are well-appointed and the pools have ample seating. The only complaint would... More
