“Returning Next Year - It's That Good”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

First time visit and we were not disappointed. Rooms were spacious, clean, right on the beach, nice little cabana bar, lots of restaurants nearby and a BBQ deck to grill your own if you don't want to go out. We live in Ormond Beach, FL on the Atlantic and when we agreed to have a family get-together on the Gulf side. I was against it. What could make me want to travel 5 hours to a beach resort when I live in one? Boy was I impressed. Pools, saunas, tennis courts, covered parking, out the door and on the beach, and the BBQ deck. While there we celebrated my wife's birthday and my daughter's birthday. I had the four grandchildren with us and my kids from NH, MD and England, plus two of their friends. Everyone pleased with their rooms and the amenities. EVERYONE had a great week and we all said, hey - let's do it again next year. My wife said a restaurant on premises would be nice but there are so many within a short drive it was not a show stopper. Two (maybe more) within walking distance (for this gimpy grandfather).

Room Tip: All the rooms we had were suites with fridges, cupboards, cooking surface, flat screen tv's, etc...

We have just enjoyed 14 days at the Alden Beach ( Room 519). This was our second visit to the Hotel. We stayed in a suite over looking the pool. It was like having your own apartment with kitchenette and separate bedroom. The beds were very comfortable,the rooms and grounds were very clean and tidy. Next time we come we are going to stay in a gulf view suite. Have been visiting St Pete Beach for the past thirty years and have stayed in many of the Hotels but for value for money and excellent helpful staff The Alden takes a lot of beating.

We like to think of the Alden as the "best bang for the buck" , the "best euphoria for the Euro", the best pound for pound"....OK, that's enough...

Thoroughly enjoyed the week at the Alden. Bed was super firm, but really got a good night's sleep on it. Other amenities were just right for all the comforts needed for a week's stay at the beach. The staff is very accommodating and friendly (hi, Mark!), and the will do whatever you need to make your stay the best.

Room Tip: Ground level in the building with parking under it was perfect for us, but next time I'd like to...

The Alden is a large facility on the beach with many amenities. There are two nice pools and a nice size hot tub. We loved that there is a outdoor grill area with picnic tables to enjoy a meal without going out to eat all the time. The hotel is close to everything so you can walk across the street to a nice restaurant, go down the street to Publix or Dollar Tree for supplies. We are already thinking of making a return trip very soon.

Once again, another great stay at the Alden Beach Resort. We just returned from a wonderful stay at the Alden Mon Nov 11 - Wed Nov 13, 2013. We orginally booked a King Burmuda suite but due to the fabulous weather, upgraded to an Antigua King Suite overlooking the beach. Worth every penny.

I can't say enough good things about this resort. I am a return guest, first staying back in 2005 -when I took my daughter down to enter her freshman year of college. We have continuted to use the Alden as our hotel-of-choice due to the family-owned pride that is evident in every aspect of the resort. From the initial reservation process, to check-in, including housekeeping etc..... everyone has a smile and a greeting. As a guest, I was really made to feel welcome and at home.

The grounds and pools are spotless as are the rooms, the service
excellent and the view priceless.

One nice perk, is that the parking is secure so we had no worries about leaving our rental car in the garage. Everything is within walking distance so once we parked, we had no need to move the car again until our departure. Security was evident to ensure that the hotel and grounds were used only by registered guests. The pools and hot tub were crystal clear and clean. Plenty of lounge chairs and continual upkeep throughout the day to keep the pool deck area clean and clutter free. You can really see the difference here between a good hotel and one that takes pride to offer an outstanding experience.

Thumbs up to a great stay. Can't wait to book again.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the Garden Villas, Burmuda King Suites and now the King Antigua suite. I don'...

Have just returned from our 10th visit here, have been coming to st Pete for 15 years and stayed at other hotels but once we had stayed here we never went anywhere else we just love it!!

We stayed in one of the pool view suites, really nice and big with full kitchen, and this had been refurbished, grandson and husband v pleased with new TV's, myself the new beds and bedding were fantastic, have never slept so well away from home. New hot tub really nice, lovely daily walks on beach, stepping straight out on to thesand from beside the cabana bar, and even played tennis this year on the courts on the car park roof.

As usual staff excellent, helpful and pleasant, special hello to Chuck,see him every year for a catch up, and hi to Alex on the front desk, missing my daily visit, what a lovely man and a credit to this establishment. Will be back,only 49 weeks to go....

This was our second stay at the Alden, and we will be back. We love that it is a family run hotel! We had a gulf front suite, which consisted of a bedroom with a king size bed, bathroom with a separate sink, a kitchenette, a living area AND a balcony looking over the powdery white sand and blue waters of St. Pete Beach. You step outside onto the beach and in the evening you can watch the sunset! The rooms are clean and the housekeeping staff does a great job. The new hot tub is awesome!! It is not a fancy place - and there are a few things that could use a little updating, but for the price you get an excellent value.

Room Tip: If you want to sit on your balcony and see the gulf ask for a gulf front suite
