We stayed two nights (Jan 28/29, 2015) before driving down to Anna Maria Island. Alden rooms are clean, roomy and come with a kitchen. We stayed in a Beachfront Deluxe Double located in the 4 story building. You can't beat this location or the size of the beach. Can't wait to return.

Stayed at the Alden Suites from 03/02 - 03/06/15. Property a bit "old" but do not be deceived. Staff were very professional and accommodating. Our room was ready early so that was appreciated. Room also very clean and contains the essentials for a beach vacation. Plus shopping for "supplies" easily attainable on Gulf Blvd. Location of the hotel cannot be... More

We checked in last minute and the guys at the front desk were really nice ... very helpful. We got one of the smaller rooms at a great price and we totally enjoyed the week. Great area, great beach. Really enjoyed reading the complimentary newspaper on the front porch each morning. Thank you Alden Suites!!!!

Nice place. Older property, but maintained well. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Superb location, literally right on the beach. Great pools, grounds were landscaped and maintained beautifully. We would definitely stay again.

We checked into our first beachfront suite and it smelled of dog urine. The kitchenette was small and shabby with outdated appliances and the bathroom was gross. We were not paying $300 a night for a suite smelling like dog urine. We decided to see if we could be moved. We went up to the front desk and asked very... More

Not sure what "shabby" means, but I am sorry if the first suite had an unpleasant odor. We only allow pets in the Courtyard Junior Suites, and only on the ground floor. We take pride that the Alden is NOT shabby, as evidenced by the photos on our website and the vast majority of positive guest comments on Trip Advisor.... More

We just got back from a five night stay. Paid $329-$349/night for a beach front room and was expecting a lot more than we got for that price. Room very small and kitchenette was tiny with a dorm size fridge, tiny stove and no countertop. We enjoy cooking in our room and it was nearly impossible. I called front desk... More

This guest stayed in one of the Gulf front suites that was totally renovated in 2012-2013. We have numerous suite types and this one happens to have a "galley style" kitchen with brand new kitchen equipment. The photos are accurate and up to date. Other suite types have larger "full kitchens" with more space. Next time, ask for the Premium... More

Area was perfect, just the right mix of people and ages. Walking was easy and plenty to do. Hotel could be a bit cleaner and the some of the employees don't seem to friendly but overall great experience!
