“Yearly visitor, always return here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great rooms, provide spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico, always clean, full kitchen (stove, dishwasher, fridge). The two pool areas are fantastic to both relax and party in. The beach front property hosts a cabana bar along with beach activities such as volleyball -always a blast. Complementary BBQ's are also available at the hotel which saves some money on eating out. The hotel room rates are always decent when we go -every October. The Alden is also close to many tourist attractions such as Bush Gardens and Clearwater Aquarium. To top it off, very friendly staff whom I have become friends with over the years. Keep up the great work team!

Room Tip: I always stay at the Nassau suites. They are not water front, but take a walk and see the Gulf your...

On the beach, they have vollyball, beach bar, laundry facilities, pools, great restaurants within walking distance. Golf views are the best!We love the balcony!Looking forward to new hot tub and free wiifi
See you in 3.5 weeks!!!!!

Room Tip: Gulf views the Lania rooms are best!

Thanks very much for the review, we appreciate the feedback. IN the summer, we run near full with families and thus, numerous kids in the pools, but thankfully, we have two pools, with the front pool a little mellower and more "adult oriented"

Thanks again,

This was a family vacation. We arrived around 2, and they allowed us to check in. The room was VERY clean, staff friendly, and they have 2 great pools plus a hot tub. There are no restaurants on site, but there are plenty within walking distance. The gentleman that helped us in the gift shop was very helpful and very willing to give advice on eating and area attractions. Beach was great. Rentals for chairs and other beach activities were very reasonable. We are already planning our trip for next year.

We are on a roll with these 5-star reviews!

Nothing pleases us more to hear from guests about our staff, our facilities (what other St Pete Beach hotels offer 3 gas grills for cooking out? The answer is NONE!) and the positive attributes of a locally family owned and operated resort hotel. And YES we do not charge resort fees for use of any or all of our wonderful amenities and services.

They should make a TV show for us called Hotel Possible!

Check in time was 4pm but we arrived around noon, our room wasnt ready yet but they allowed us to check in early. They gave us our parking key and buckets and shovels for the kids and even offered to keep any food we had cold in their fridge until our room was ready. We went right to the beach, they called our cell phone by 3pm to tell us our room was ready. Very helpful staff. There are two pools and a hottub which are kept very clean and have bathroom facilities inside the laundry rooms. The private beach access is key, parasailing is available along with any other rentals you'd want.We stayed in a gulf view room on the 4th floor which had a beautiful view.Volleyball,bean bags and outside shuffle board and grills available along with a bar.Cleaning staff very friendly and rooms were kept very clean.We will come back here every year!

Room Tip: Gulf rooms are a must although all other rooms would be fine too.if you take the stairs and stay on...

My Husband's not a big crowd person so we always try to pick places that are beachfront with less rooms. The other guest were a mixed crowd of ages, families,couples and some party people, but all n all decent folks. No dining options on the property, but plenty in walking distance from the place. The staff was over the top!! A gentleman in the convience store who was from Baltimore EXTREMELY helpful in guidance!! One of the matienance crew interupted his chores to get me TP. I interupted his job and he was very polite about it!! The crew at the front very welcoming!! Upon our early departure there was a snag in our paperwork very quick to get a resolve so we wouldn't get tided up on the way to the airport. For the price we paid for gulf front I was expecting tired and dingy decor not here!! Very freshly decorated and extremely clean!!! Thanks Alden for a great recharge!! We will be back!!

Room Tip: Go for the gulf front very nice!!
