Overall, the stay was nice. Gulf Towers 8C was one of the nicest condos we have stayed in. Unfortunately, we had issues with building/security management staff. Of the 3 nights we were there, 2 nights we were met with parking notification violations. Each time we had our parking pass visible. Although the condo was nice and Bender was great to work with, we will probably never stay at Gulf Towers again.

Manager's Response

Gulf Tower 8C is definitely a lovely condo with its updated furnishings, beach front view from the glass-enclosed balcony, and large outdoor pool.

We have been coming to Gulf Shores and Gulf Tower for over 25 years. we love the location on the beach. the view of the water from the bedroom and most of all the glassed balcony. We can park are car and walk to almost everwhere we want to go.

Manager's Response

Aren't those glass-enclosed balconies terrific? No matter the weather, you can always enjoy the beach front view of the Gulf. Unit 8C is a particularly nice condo at Gulf Tower, and we're so glad you enjoyed yourselves.

We had a wonderful experience! Everything was clean and ready to go when we arrived. One of the bathrooms is not attached to the bedroom, which actually ended up working better for us. The only thing we wished we could have changed was a real balcony instead of an inclosed one, and that we could have kept both cars on the property and not paid extra to park it somewhere else.

The little security buttons to get through the gates of the pool and beach were annoying at first, but we got use to it. Probably best in the long run. As before the place was clean, comfortable and well stocked. The view of the Gulf each morning makes this place a gem. Try it, you'll like it. As over the years, Bender was great to work with.

If you're looking for bad, you won't find much here. This unit is used by the owners quite often, so it's nicer than your run-of-the-mill rental. Clean, well supplied, great view, great location. The new exterior patio doors are tinted and insulated, very nice. The building is getting secured WIFI, per the installer. Get up in the morning and look over the beach and water, it's great!! And again, Bender was great to work with.

Our stay in 8C was very enjoyable. The decor was very pretty and I was delighted with it. There are a few things that I felt needed attention though. The sliding glass doors on the balcony 'really' need some vertical blinds. The glare from the sun coming straight in to the living room was very bad and we had to sit with our backs to the porch to be able to see the tv screen. Also, there is no privacy at all in the master bedroom b/c of the lack of any kind of door. The people in the living room had to go to the other bedroom if they wanted to watch tv. Because of those two relatively large issues I will not be staying at this unit in the future. I hope that these two important issues can be rectified b/c the unit is very nice with upgraded appliances in the kitchen as well. The only thing the kitchen was lacking in was a decent teflon coated skillet. There is a little one but it's very scratched up. A little clock in the bedroom would be a plus as well. Thank you for a beautiful stay. I've been staying at Gulf Tower for over 30 years and love it.

Overall satisfied with our stay. It was in a great location. The unit had lovely decor but could have been cleaner. The refrigerator/ freezer smelled strongly of fish, keeping us from storing our food in it. The king mattress was broken down on one side making it slightly uncomfortable.

This unit is cozy, very comfortable and decorated in a beach theme. Bender Realty was wonderful to work with and you couldnt ask for a better location and condo layout. We particularly enjoyed the master bedroom off the balcony, as we were able fall asleep to the sound of the waves and waking up to beautiful sunrises. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could ask for. Although the condo is a little dated we found it to be very comfortable and inviting. The ceramic (wood pattern) floors are beautiful, however very hard on the feet. After a week, both my husband and I had sore feet. It would be nice to have some area rugs both in the living room and bedroom. The pool is clean and nice to have so close to the elevators. The beach is beautiful with rentable chairs/umbrellas. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed staying in this condo and will be back again! PROS: Beautiful location, great beach and comfortable condo. CONS: The ceramic tile floors are very hard on the feet. Although the floor was well swept when we arrived, it was still very dirty. Five minutes walking without our shoes, our white socks were black. Other than the floor, everything else was clean. Unfortunately this unit does not have Internet. You have to go to the clubroom to get it.

Manager's Response

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Gulf Shores. Gulf Tower 8C is a great condo, with its glass-enclosed, beach front balcony and close proximity to restaurants and attractions. The owners have put in area rugs which will be pleasing to both your eyes and feet! Please call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!

Enclosed balcony great. Hall toilet has problems. (we avoided it) Owner should invest in small repairs & updating. My priorities of clean linens (enough of them), convenient kitchen, and no bugs get 5 stars. The common areas well kept. Pool pristine. Dirty old grills outside. We hoped this would be a place to stay for a month or more this winter, but no. Shopworn is a good word to describe the condo. No internet wasn't a problem for a few days, but the inconvenience of using common room would be longer term. I felt safe & can say for sure the smoke alarm works (from cooking) & there are sprinklers. If you let Ginny at Bender know what you are looking for, she will find it. Will always call them.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for your input. You will be pleased to know that the owners are doing some marvelous updates to the kitchen and furnishings throughout. We will have new pictures on our website by the beginning of the new year. Gulf Tower 8C, with its brand new look and wonderful, glass-enclosed balcony will be the perfect Gulf Coast getaway! Please give Bender Realty a call!

Overall, we were very satisfied with the condo we stayed in at Gulf Towers and the excellent care that we received from the staff at Bender's. The condo was still in the process of being remodeled (which we knew) and the owners were doing a good job. The only complaint was the cleaning prior to our arrival. The floors in the high traffic areas were swept but the balance were dirty/sandy and when we opened the front slider door, the dust bunnies came out of hiding from under the bed and furniture. I think Bender management needs to do more quality control on their cleaning contractors.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your input. We are excited about the new updates in Gulf Tower 8C. We regret our housekeeping was not up to standards. Please be assured that we regard the failure to meet minimum housekeeping standards unacceptable and apologize for your inconvenience. Please give us a call when you are ready to return to Gulf Shores.

NICE LOCATION RIGHT ON THE BEACH WITH A BEAUTIFUL VIEW. ROOM WAS NICE BUT THE BEDS WERE VERY HARD AND UNCOMFORTABLE. ALSO DIDN'T LIKE THAT THEY DIDN'T HAVE A BALCONY SEPARATE FROM ROOM AND THEY DON'T ALLOW ANYONE TO SIT BY THE POOL AFTER 10PM. THE GRILLS ARE LOCATED IN THE CORNER OF THE PARKING LOT, NOT IDEAL FOR GRILLING. I HAD A GREAT TIME WITH MY FAMILY, GULF SHORES IS A GREAT AREA FOR A FAMILY VACATION.

The location of the property by the beach, with a wonderful view of the ocean, was just priceless. The room was very nice, well furnished, with a very nice balcony. I will just ask that the property management install fans in the 2 elevators, repaint the building, and put brooms in each apartement.

The Condo was very nice, neat and clean. Loved the ocean dcor. Convenience to the beach was awesome. Felt Safe. The view was breathtaking. The Management Company was top notch. If I had to comment anything negative, the wifi for the building was poor, not much service. But overall we loved it and would recommend it to anyone.

The condo was just what we needed for our stay. Clean and had everything we needed from a corkscrew to a baking sheet! Quiet, also, couldn't hear the neighbors and the view was just what we needed!

As always we loved it.Loved the remodel of the condo unit 8c. .

Left IL to get away from the cold. We had a nice time in Gulf Shores. Our place felt like home when we left. Loved waking up and seeing the ocean. The condo was laid out nicely. The rental company was the best. Any little problem we had was taken care of. They were always friendly. We liked it so much we are planning to return next winter.

Really enjoyed our condo. It had almost everything we needed...We were told that we would have WiFi in the unit but the only place we could get it was on the balcony. That worked for us, but was a little disappointing when we arrived. Benders was a wonderful company to work with. We got immediate response to any problem we had. The residents of the condo were very friendly and we got together once a week in the community room. We really enjoyed our visit here.

My only complaint was when we first walked into the condo, there were stains on the carpet. I had read that there was new carpeting installed last year and had hoped for better. However, the view was to die for. The last morning there, my wife and I woke up early and could see dolphins swimming and jumping. Also the condo is just down the road from Bender Realty and close to good eating places and shops.

We were pleased with the condo unit.Looks like the furniture is fairly new and had two really nice tv's to watch.Kitchen had just about anything you would need to cook and eat with.Pool area is nice and had a large sitting area and the water in the pool was actually warm.The only things we did not like was the parking area which seemed a little cramped especially if you had a full size truck/suv and we did not care for the "inside balcony" as you never got the feeling of sitting on your balcony at night listening to the ocean.We would rent this unit again.

The unit was in good shape. It loked like the carpet had just been replaced and it had new paint through out. The other people staying there were very friendly. There are a lot of good places to eat in Gulf Shores and a lot of things to see and do. we would rent from Bender Realty again.

I really liked 8C however, the AC was a little underpowered. We had to buy a fan to keep the bedroom cool enough. The AC was probably designed for the square footage excluding the newly renovated ocean viewing porch. Most of these units allow you to close
the door to the porch. This keeps the unit much cooler. We usually stay at 5c and that unit is definately cooler. If nothing else ceiling fans in the bedrooms would help. Either way we enjoyed our stay.

Not bad but could be better

Pros: good location, good TVs, good beds and baths, well equipped kitchen, good air conditioner
Cons: decor is VERY dated, carpet and furniture is stained, sliding doors didn't work well, sheets were like sand paper, towels and bedspreads were thin and worn, wireless internet too weak & never worked.

We had a little incident in the pool with one of the owners of another property. Same building, but different floor. Something that could have been handled by talking to us, but instead security was involved, etc..
As far as the property/condo, it was beautiful!

We had a wonderful time in Gulf Shore. During our stay, we were blessed with perfect weather!
The Good: Gulf Towers is a great place to stay! Very homey! Plenty of room. Great view of the Gulf and beaches from the balconey. Very close to restaaurants and shops and public parks and beaches. Great bech at Gulf Towers. Clean Pool!Well furnished. Kitchen with all amenities. Property very clean!
The Bad: Beds are very uncomfortable. We tried sleeping on both bed and found them substandard for us. Ended up sleeping on hide-a-bed couch! Much more comfortable but still a hide-a-bed!
We would come and stay again in a heart beat but would bring with us a sheet of plywood to place between mattress and springs.

Manager's Response

Good news! All new beds in both bedrooms, replaced in April 2011.

Nice place to stay. Property clean and in good condition. Don't have anything bad to say about the proverty or Bender staff.

we have stayed at gulf tower for many years. we prefer it because it is a small building with pool and access to the beach right outside the pool area. we have stayed in several of the units including the top floor (penthouse). we stayed in a larger building on one occasion (islands east) but we prefer gulf tower because of it's size and homey feel. it is always clean and well kept. we always enjoy our stay at gulf tower!

I would rate this place Average for the cost and the upkeep of the home.
For the location to hear the gulf and see it, it certainly achieves the purpose.
