We have been going to the Alden since the mid-80's and have always had a wonderful experience! All the staff are accommodating, rooms clean, pools and other activities great. Maintenance never an issue. Always ample staff monitoring guest activity. Very safe environment for families and seniors. We LOVE it and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else on the beach!

We've stayed here twice before and loved it enough to come back a 3rd time. Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say we won't be coming back again. We have ants in our room. The desk was very nice about allowing us to switch rooms but that one has ants too. In both rooms, they are in the kitchen and bathroom sink... More

My family has been visiting the St Pete's Beach area since 1966 and we always stay at the Alden Beach Resort. Now that the kids are adults, their families come too. Great service, accommodations, and family fun. Truly, a home away from home.

Everything we requested they made available, first floor and beach front. Love were the property is centrally located with many stores and Restaurants close by. The pull out couch could definitely use a much better mattress but the main beds were comfortable. The kitchen is very small with no oven but it did have a microwave. Front desk help was... More

My daughter and a friend are at this hotel as we speak having booked thru Booking.com and they had to change rooms 3 times to find one that wasn't horrible. They were promised (and paid for) a villa and when they arrived was told there were none available. Bait and switch? Then the room they were put into was the... More

There seems to be some errors in this review. I have researched this reservation to find: 1) The Booking.com reservation says "King Studio with Pool View". There is no mention of requesting a "Villa Suite" 2) No request for ground floor was ever made on the subject reservation 3) According out Front Desk staff, they asked for an upgrade at... More

The rating on this resort is to high. My friend stayed there in June of 2014 and we're not pleased at all. We requested an upper floor when reservation was made, were stuck on bottom floor. The kitchen was very disappointing as well as the bathroom. We also killed a one inch roach crawling on the carpet floor the first... More

I'm sorry for the comments made in this review, but sometimes I am at a loss to respond, but I'll try: We try our best to honor certain floors, but during sell out periods, it is not always possible I'm sorry they encountered a roach, but sometimes (even with weekly pest control service) an insect may wander into a suite,...

This was a perfect location for our family. I brought my daughter, daughter-in-law and our grandkids (ages 3, 6 & 7) and the suite had room enough for us all. It had been recently renovated so everything was clean and new. The kitchenette came in very handy. It was right on the beach which was beautiful and so convenient. The... More

I have lived in this area for some 20 years and always send friends and family here. I've stayed here many times, and always found it clean, friendly, beautiful and reasonable. It is in the middle of lots of activity so if you don't like traffic go elsewhere. But if you want to be close to the action and enjoy... More

This was not our first visit to the Alden. We have been patrons of the Alden since the mid-eighties. However, this will absolutely be our last stay at the Alden. Our Gulf front Cayman suite was in dire need of rehabbing. The sofa was too soft, worn and shabby, refrigerator scarred and repainted, rippled discolored carpeting, lighting very poor, and... More

Sorry to read this posting, as we pride ourselves on a huge % of repeat satisfied guests. WE also renovate our suites every year, doing one building at a time, so we never have to try to renovate 143 units in one year. The Cayman suites were totally renovated in 2008-2009, so these comments may be a bit exaggerated. The... More
