Back again for a second year

The location, you can't get any better. Right on the beach front (we had a Gulf front view). Room very clean and staff very helpful. Recommend Skidders restaurant across the road, that good went back twice. Looking forward to hopefully going back again next year.

Very good experience and value

Rooms are spacious and clean, and the staff is very friendly and accomodating. We ended up upgrading to an ocean view room, which was worth it. The beach is fantasic. The cabana bar on the beach is small but nice. The heated pools are a very comfortable temperature (even though a couple of the nights went below 50 degrees) and are very clean. The decent-sized outdoor hot tub and the deck/seating area with gas grills for use are nice additions. Location is great - lots of good restaurants nearby. The price for what you get there I feel is very fair. Planning to return again next year.

Had a nice seafood dinner across the street at Snappers. Breakfast at the Frog Pond (half mile north) is fantastic - ended up going there every day.

Family Beach Getaway

We have stayed here several years in a row to relax after Disney. The location is absolutely perfect, right on St. Pete Beach. The suites are clean and have a kitchen, living area and separate bedroom area. The bedroom area is small, but the rest of the suite is roomy. The upgrade to oceanfront is well worth the extra cost. Beautiful sunsets from your balcony. Pools are well kept and staff is very friendly and helpful. Restaurants are within walking distance. It is not a big resort with swim up bars, but if looking for good value and quiet place on the beach, then this is right for you!

Cozy!

Clean rooms, basic but nice. Not a huge fan of tile floor but it is the beach. Nice location, you can visit Guy Harvey next door and restaurants in walking distance.

Wedding Weekend Away

Needless to say we didn't spend a whole lot of time at the Suites, but the time we spent there was great. We got one of the newly renovated rooms ocean front. BEAUTIFUL view and a quick walk to the beach. Two pools, hot tub, corn hole and a beach bar--who could ask for anything more. ALL the staff was wonderful. Rooms were very clean and showers were hot and with great water pressure--not a drip-drip like you get in some hotels. Free wifi that worked and just a short walk to great eats and drinks. Next visit to St Pete, we will be staying at Alden Suites!

Definitely Recommend

A group of us stayed here for my sister's wedding which was about 5-10 away from this resort. The staff was so friendly at check-in. Our room wasn't ready when we got there, because we arrived early, but one guy gave my daughter a sand bucket and shovel and directed us to the beach! Our room was spacious, bed was comfy, and the balcony facing the ocean and beach was wonderful. We only stayed a night and then headed for Disney World. Once we got to Disney, we missed our relaxing room at Alden! Great value.

Perfect value

I recently stayed at the Alden and was a little worried because the hotel was not expensive at all. Well once I got there my worries went away, the size of the room is perfect, so spacious and absolutely clean. I would absolutely come back and recommend friends and family.

Family time away

This hotel was very average. The price was right and the front desk was very nice and helpful and got us into our room prior to our 3:00 check in. The house keeping staff was very loud in the mornings. They woke us up every morning! We would stay here again but we would want an ocean front room. Our room was a "pool view" room. We couldn't see either pool nor could we see the ocean.
