This was a great condo, however, myself or my family will never be staying here again due to the property manager and the security at the condo. I arrived very late on Friday evening (due to work) to meet my family who was already staying at the condo. I was approached by the security guard telling me not to park in the parking lot or else we would be towed. Understandingly, I called the realty agent to see if we could use their parking lot to park and walk to the condo (about 0.25mi) The realtor told me to return to the condo parking lot it would be fine to park in the condo parking lot and called the security guard to let them know. When I arrived back at the condo and parked (there were 14 or more open parking spaces) the security guard was still on the phone speaking with the realtor-- I heard their conversation and spoke with the security guard before going up to the condo and all she said was "this will have to go in my report." It was after midnight at this time so we didn't get to sleep until after. At 7:00AM! the property manager came POUNDING on the door waking me, my whole family, and the baby and was literally harassing all of us saying the car was getting towed. When we tried to discuss what the realtor had instructed us to do the evening before he said the security guard nor the realtor would ever do that and we were lying. Needless to say we moved our vehicle to the realtor parking lot as I had originally planned to do the evening before. The condo was adequately advertised as sleeping 6, I don't see how we were expected to fit up to 6 occupants in 1 vehicle or not given the option to pay for another parking pass. After this incident the security guard was continually rude to us and on check out day we had to park across the street to pack our car (almost getting hit by traffic multiple times). My family and I have given the realty agency a good amount of business and loved everywhere we have stayed except Gulf Tower, I feel like something could have been done to alleviate the issue and accommodate us seeing as our vacation became very stressful. We will never stay at Gulf Tower again, I don't recommend it to future renters.
Everything was good with one exception. The problem was the sofa bed. Not only did it have dirty sheets on it (WHICH WERE PICKED UP AFTER WE TOLD THE MGMT CO), it would not pull out properly and was extremely uncomfortable. My daughter finally decided to sleep on the sofa instead of the sofa bed. I felt bad for her, but she made the best of it.
We had a great time in Gulf Shores and our location was really good. There was a problem with the door bell ringing randomly throughout the night at times. Must have been a problem with the battery. Other that that the property was nice and comfortable.
“WE WILL BE RETURNING TO THIS LOCATION AGAIN!!!”
THE BEST VACATION EVER!! MY KIDS DIDNT WANT TO LEAVE AT ALL!!! LOOK FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR!!!
“Great view of the Ocean.”
Clean, but outdated. Love that u could view beach/ocean from the pool, and the little grocery store within walking distance. I just wish the condo would supply detergent/dish detergent since you have to launder the towels.
Check in was easy. The room was well furnished and clean. The view from the balcony was awesome. The balcony was perfect for young kids due to the safety bars.
Everything was great but limited parking which was a bit of a hassle
this is our 3rd time staying at gulf tower our experience has been very good
“Gulf Shores, Gulf Tower 7C”
The folks at Bender were very helpful. Our condo was clean and very well stocked with cooking utensils. Would stay with them again
We have been staying this condo at least twice a year for many years now. Last year the tubs had rings and grime and the sheets were not clean and I had to clean them myself. Also a maintenance man had a key and tried to let himself in but we had the latch on door so he couldn't get in. We told him to leave. Last week's visit was disappointing in that the tv cable wasn't hooked up in wall and we couldn't use the tv and told Bender about it. We pick this particular condo b/c of the extra tv and we weren't notified that it wasn't working. Mgmet. politely blew me off when I called about it. Otherwise it's a lovely condo.
