We booked last minute and paid about $250 per night for the king studio. I had read the reviews and was prepared for the worst and to know that I overpaid for what I was getting. That said once we arrived I was pleasantly surprised but probably because my expectations were low. It isn't a dump but I have stayed... More

This would be a great hotel for families. Outside grounds are very nice. With two pools it did not seem crowded and there were always empty lounge chairs. The grassy area next to the beach was very relaxing with lounge chairs under the palm trees. There is plenty of outside activities tennis, shuffleboard etc. There is a food truck and... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay at Alden Suites and it was just what we needed. It's true that it is an older resort but we found it to be immaculate and boasting a lot of amenities that no other resort had. Our suite was gulf-front, very clean and spacious. We had a full size fridge, microwave, 2... More

Well, I read the reviews & took a chance on Alden Suites. The nicest thing about this place is the covered parking. Our room smelled like musty dog urine. I called the front desk & was told "I'm so sorry about that & I'll send someone right away". The thing was he didn't sound the least bit surprised about it... More

We came thinking we would have some luxury for $349. a night....so, if you want luxury-don't stay here, if you want peace and quite-don't stay here, if you want cleanliness-find another place. We found it a dark dirty dank cave-like suite in dire need of being torn down to the rafters. Ever hear of screens--the no-see-ums eat you at night,... More

I have visited the Alden Suites beach bar several times now and it is never a disappointment. The bartenders David and Chris are not only amazing to be around, they are also quick and efficient! You will truly be in for an exceptional customer service experience when visiting these two. I have recommended the Alden to several friends and family... More

Chris & David (AKA Buff & Buffer) are the best bartenders on the beach! We are constantly pleased that our guests single them out as one of the many reasons to love the Alden! At Your Service, Gary Renfrow President & part owner More

I have been to the Alden a few times to enjoy the beach bar and the atmosphere. However, I always have the best times when David and Chris are behind the bar. Their energy and ability to have everybody at the bar engaged no matter the age or background always amazes me. They single handedly keep me coming back for... More

We stayed here for 11 nights in February. My husband referred to the suite as a “dump.” I am willing to be a bit more generous and say it was quite shabby. Old and worn. Kitchen appliances are old. “Kitchen” is perhaps a misnomer. It is miniscule. We paid more than $300 a night for this and were very disappointed.... More

After reviewing and investigating this less than flattering review, please allow me to not "make excuses" but to shed a little light on this guest stay: How we went out of our way to accommodate this guest: They first tried to cancel their reservation within the 48 hour cancellation period, then switched their dates, which we allowed, although we could...

We were on the 5th floor facing the Gulf. Great little balcony. Overall, as indicated by others, the hotel is a little older, BUT, it really has all you need. Two heated pools which were clean. 12 person hot tub which was clean. Our room was clean, AC was great. Views were great. The beach is beautiful and we lucked... More

Thanks so very much for the wonderful comments, I sincerely appreciate it! We switched to the one cup coffee makers, which is the trend in the hotel industry. We also offer free Kuerig coffee in the lobby every morning. The one cup makers provide fresh and very fast coffee, as opposed to the old fashioned 6 cup makers, which caused... More

My wife and two children (3 and 1) stayed 3 nights at Alden Suites (March 8-11, 2015). We chose the Alden because it fit the bill for our two biggest must-haves: on the beach and a separate bedroom / suite. Since we had our two young children with us, we didn't want to haul beach gear very far and we... More
