I was a bit confused by the "small room" comment, as we offer SUITES that are considerable larger than standard hotel ROOMS. In any event, thanks for the nice comments. At Your Service, Gary Renfrow President and part owner More

This was my second stay at Alden Suites! I stayed the last week of January and the first of February. I usually stay in the king suites which are quite comfortable. The room I was in was having trouble with the wifi so they graciously moved me to an upgraded room at no extra charge. The grounds are well kept.... More

Stayed here a few weeks ago. The room was great. Good size. Good for families with the separate sleeping area. You could put the kids to bed and still sit up and watch tv or sit on the balcony. Housekeeping wasn't the greatest. They came in every day but would miss things. The carpet was visibly dirty but they chose... More

Sorry to hear about the housekeeping issues, which are very rare, to say the least, as evidenced by the vast majority of positive comments about the cleanliness of the hotel. Having said that,l I am sorry you were less than satisfied with the HK service during part of your stay. The Beach Cabanas and Water Sports operations are third party... More

We stayed here for a few days with our grand daughter aged 7. The hotel is on the beach and the two pools and hot tub were hits. Overall the place is tired, but the staff are pleasant. Our suite was large with a good size fridge, small dish washer and stove. The suite was cleaned every morning and new... More

Not sure what suite this guest occupied, but after constant renovations to almost every suite type, I cannot understand the "tired" comment. They might have been in a poolside suite which all but 18 have been totally renovated in 2014 and the rest will be completed by Fall 2015. At Your Service, Gary Renfrow President & part owner More

Well, let's begin by saying that on Jan 19, 2015, we booked a Poolside King Bed Studio for February 7-11, 2015 at a rate of $129.00 directly on the Alden Beach Suites website. We landed in St. Pete's on February 4 and proceeded directly to Alden Suites to look at the premises and speak to the front desk personnel. We... More

OK, this one needs some explaining, and I'll try to convey what happened, after researching with the Director of Revenue, the Front Office Manager, and other staff members that were involved with this guest: 1) The guest did originally book a courtyard Junior Suite for $129 rate 2) They did agree on the $120 upgrade to a Gulf Front Premium...

Just spent a very pleasant week at the Alden. My husband and I have stayed at 2 other hotels on the beach and this was the best. I booked a poolside one bedroom and it was spotless.

Always a pleasure to exceed a guest's expectations!

We loved our suite at the Alden. The weather was very cool, but the beauty and setting of the hot tub right outside our door kept my vacation a nice, relaxing time! I spent time out there every morning and evening. Always clean, always hot, and the softest hot tub water I've ever experienced. The bedding was luxury, the pillows... More
