We unexpectedly were traveling to St. Pete Beach and got into the Alden due to a cancellation. We were a bit concerned because the only room available was an Antigua suite which accomodated smokers as well (we are not a smoking family). We arrived on Saturday 3/26 at noon and check-in was not until 4pm. They took our cell phone number and said they would call when the room was ready. They called us shortly before 1pm - what a great help that was with our children! The room was great - clean, spacious and no obvious smell of smoke. We looked right out on the gulf and beach. The room was cleaned every day and any request we had was taken care of immediately. The staff were great and when we asked to stay an additional night, they worked it out so that we didn't have to move to another room. The atmosphere is a bit less hectic than some of the others on the beach and the grilling area was a great thing to have when traveling with a family and trying to keep expenses down. Overall, a great value for the money!
