“Good value for beachfront suite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We picked this place to be beachfront but to also have a bedroom and separate living room. This was a weekend at the end of a week long Orlando trip. Checkin was friendly and efficient. They gave us beach pails for the kids which were used the whole time we were there. It was very clean but definitely looking a little worn, especially yhe carpet. There is a small kitchenette which was good for snacks and lunch food. Our beachfront suite was on the first floor next to the cabana bar and pool. It was great to sit on our patio and enjoy the music and look at the beach and ocean. However, having a room with the bedroom backing up to the pool was not great as the pool is open until 11 pm. It was quite noisy for the kids trying to sleep and on Saturday we were on everyone's path coming home after partying all night until about 2 am. This isn't the hotels fault at all and I think if we had been in a different room away from that area it would have been ok. beds were comfortable.

Overall a solid choice for a couple of days with a family. I don't think we will be back to this particular area. The beach was nice but it is definitely more of a party scene here at night than we realized and prefer quiter secluded beaches.

Room Tip: Any pool facing rooms could be noisy at night if you want to turn in early, or next to Cabana bar.

This was our second time staying at Alden Beach Resort and it was as fabulous as the first time. We got a Lanai suite again, the building has a gulf view. The room and view were most excellant and of course the beach is beautiful. The staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and anything we needed. I will probably try to get reservations for later this year. You won't be sorry if you stay here.

Room Tip: Lanai rooms are a little more expensive but worth it.

The Alden Beach was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. We had a pool view suite. It has a large bedroom and a separate living room and full kitchen. There were two flat screen TVs'. We had a minor problem with the A/C which was resolved by putting in a new thermostat. The property was kept spotless and the staff was very helpful. At this time they still charged for WIFI but I think it will be included soon. I did not pay as I was able to pick up the WIFI from a neighbouring hotel. There are two pools and a hot tub. We never had a problem getting a lounge at the pool. They have all the amenities you could want with two tennis courts, a basketball court, suffleboard courts and a beach side bar. There is no restaurant on the property but there are plenty near by. If you go try PJ's at 75th St. for seafood and Pasadena Steak house.
This hotel is family owned and it really appears that everyone cares.

We stayed for a weekend and enjoyed our stay. The service was good and price was competitive with nearby hotels (a plus is no resort or parking fee). The decor is a bit dated but served the purpose of a suite with full kitchen and plenty of space located near lots of bars/restaurants/shops. Would stay there again.

Awesome. Best pet-friendly I've found. Pet occupied rooms are restricted to pool side only, but rooms, linens, kitchenette, bathroom are as nice as most any motel. 'We've stayed in some real dumps just because they were pet friendly. We also rented a gulf side for our adult kids at the same time, so I can tell you, if you don't have a pet and choose gulf side rooms, they are also awesome. Just like the pictures, you ARE right on the beach and the views are fantastic.

Our pet friendly suites are very popular and receive rave reviews, so much that we may decide to increase the number from 9 to 18 pet friendly suites..first come, first serve!

Thanks for the nice comments

We stayed for a week over the Easter holiday and had a great time! There were 3 families in our group w/ kids ranging in age 6-15. The size of the resort is perfect as the kids were able to enjoy the activities and easily be found. The basketball & tennis courts were their favorite hang-outs. Grounds were very well maintained. Pool areas were nice & almost always could find a chair. Beach is fabulous. We took our own beach chairs. Location is awesome as you are within walking distance to many great bars, restaurants & shops. Beach bar onsite was a lot of fun w/ great bartenders. Rooms are dated but clean w/ small kitchenette. Ours had 2 flat screen TVs. Beds could be more comfy. Keurig in the lobby was nice for morning coffee. If you are looking for grand, then this is not the place for you. Otherwise, I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Gulf view room view was beautiful
