Nice and quiet place. We stayed on the 7th floor , the unit was clean and updated. We had a nice view of the beach across the street. It's a short walk across the street to the beach. There was an awful stench in the lobby and on the elevator. The stench made my family want to avoid the lobby... More

This is a gorgeous complex. We have come here the past 2 years and we rent our condo from the Gordons who keep their properties in excellent repair, they are spotless and decorated beautifully not cheaply. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need or want. Don't worry about being across the street from the ocean it's as close as... More

Very nice, but they have a for parking. We was on the gulf side, and had to go outside and around. If it rains you will get wet. The lobby had a leak in the ceiling too. Small but very clean. Not the nicest place I have stayed, but I would consider staying there again.

We usually stay in Orange Beach or Foley. This trip we choose to stay in Gulf Shores. This was our first trip to the Surf and Racquet Club. We enjoyed our time there. The staff was friendly. The room we stayed in was nice, clean, and quiet. Keep in mind, these are condos being rented out by owners. We rented... More

We stayed here for the first time for a family trip. It was much more comfortable than a hotel with 3 kids. We like having a kitchen area and a more comfortable place to go when we needed a break from the beach. The pool is really nice. Having a washer and dryer in the condo is nice after coming... More

Our first time not using a traditional hotel room for a vacation and we were glad we did. We rented a 2 bedroom 1 bath room that had been updated. The grounds were nice but older and could use some updates. It was located further down the main strip so it was quiet which we prefer. Our kids did enjoy... More

The landscaping and pool area is very nice. However, once you go through the doors to the interior...it is awful! It is nasty and dirty. We rented a unit through Young's Sun Coast Realtor. It was a nightmare. I wanted to make toast...when I tried to get the toaster from the cupbaord, it was covered in cobwebs!!! ICK! Area rugs... More

We stayed at the Gulf Shores Surf and Racquet Club for a week in February. Very nice condo, clean and comfortable. Easy access to the beautiful white sand beach. Nice pool on sight but too cold to use it. Affordable price. Quiet area not far from restaurants and shopping.
