First of all, it's in a great location. That's where the positives end though. The complex itself is just low rent. Parking is a NIGHTMARE! Just the stress of trying to park here was enough to ruin my vacation. Issue is that there is a restaurant on the beach behind the complex, and no priority is given to people renting in the building. Once the lot is filled, you're just out of luck. Facilities on either side have comtrolled parking, so no where remotely close to park. Room was ok - recently updated but still old school with tiny bathrooms and pretty low budget. It was nice compared to the room the other members of our party had - that one was just plain awful. First night left a beach chair outside the door - whole house awakened at 2 a.m. by security banging on door demanding chair be moved inside door. Pretty much the worst experience overall I've experienced at a vacation location.
Gulf Shores has beautiful beaches and is a great family place. There are a lot of great places to stay there but Boardwalk isn't one of them and I would not recommend it to anyone.
