Stayed here 23 years ago when our children were babies. Just went back in Feb 2015 for a few days and truly brought back so many memories!! The staff was extremely friendly, especially the lovely woman that took care of our room!! Thank you for such a great job :) We are looking to book in 2016 for a month.... More

We got to stay here for three nights for a friend's wedding in June. We brought our dog who weighs less than 20 lbs and we got a suite on the first floor in the 'middle' building. The room is spacious, nice size mini fridge, small kitchen. The shampoo in the bathroom smells really good. haha That was a plus.... More

Arrived at 9:45am and was told By jelly was in luck and the 2 rooms reserved were vacant and could be cleaned. 4 hours later the rooms were ready. I was told by the supposed manager at front desk they had no influence over housekeeping and that there was no housekeeping manager to speak with. Asked why they stated I... More

I was shocked to read this review, so I immediately contacted our Front Office Manager, to see if he could shed some light on this guest / customer. Since I was not there personally to witness this guest and the issues at hand, I asked the Front Office Manager , who was Manager on Duty (MOD) during this interaction. I... More

Booked a first floor beach front room for one night. Room was musty, shower drain was clogged and could not get an internet connection. Pictures on website were misleading...room was much smaller than expected and a bit depressing (needed more updates). Enjoyed the beach, had dinner off-site and checked-out (did not stay the night).

rgaryr, Owner at Alden Suites, responded to this review

It's difficult to respond to the vagueness of some reviews, however: 1) If the drain was clogged, a simple call to Maintenance would have fixed it (it was not reported) 2) Internet works fine 99.9% of the time, not sure if this guest received the correct access code (was not reported) 3) Photos on website are LESS than 2 years...

Booked through Hotel Tonight for $150.00 Maybe a 10x10 room with the only window looking onto the courtyard so you really couldn't open it. Bathroom? Gotta close the door just to get into the shower. I meant to take a picture of the totally outdated shower head, but you'll just have to trust me! Blow dryer so cheap. Mildew in... More

Easy to explain this review: We only offer 4 of these "rooms" as the remainder of the hotel is ALL SUITES. These small rooms are only advertised on the Hotel Tonight app, and it is clearly advertised that this is a one queen bed, small room with much lower rates than the much larger suites on property. They were totally... More

This hotel has everything you need for a family weekend getaway. You get lots of space in your room paying for what others charge you for a small hotel room. We had a blast, and can't wait to come back again! We decided to adventure in St.Petes and all hotels in the area were booked or way to high priced.... More

Just what we like to hear! We offer suites for the same price (or less) than other local beach front hotels and are the best bang for the buck in the area At Your Service, Gary Renfrow President & part owner More

We stayed in 2012 and in 2015. Gulf front suites are awesome! The hotel is not new but well maintained and family owned. The rooms are HUGE! Full kitchen and separate living room. Our room opened directly up to the beach. Pool could use a little updating but the grounds and landscaping are excellent. Great location as well. Can't beat... More

This is a terrible hotel. There is nothing luxurious about this place and the room was not renovated as was advertised. The decor and furnishings were from the 1970s. Plastic couch and my legs stuck to it. The bathroom was really old. The minute I walked in I felt instantly depressed like I was in a cave, dark and dingy.... More

I am not pleased to read this review, however, after discussing this with our Manager on Duty, here's some information that needs to be expressed: 1) This suite type is our King Studio, the entry level suite and most affordable 2) It was totally renovated in late 2010 3) I take offense to the comment about "looks like the 1970's",...
