The Alden is an awesome family place. We are revisiting in July already booked!! This place is just like home with so many fun things to do. 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!!

We loved this place - I was a little nervous after reading some bad reviews, and yes, this is an older resort, but it is well maintained and the location is excellent. My husband told me to spend the extra money on a beachfront room and I'm so happy I did. We were on the first floor facing the beach. It was perfect. The kitchen was smaller than I expected, a mini fridge and mini stove, but it was fine for what we needed. There was a grocery store right down the street, so we only ate out one time during the 3 nights we were there. The beach was gorgeous! And like I said, we just opened up our patio door, stepped outside and we were there!! We had a great time at this resort. Oh yes, and the pillows were wonderful.

The suite you were in was a Gulf Front "Lanai Suite" which was totally renovated in late 2011. It has a smaller kitchen that the "premium Gulf front suites" which have a full size fridge and much more kitchen space...next time upgrade to the "premium Gulf front suites" you won't regret it!
