“The ONLY choice for a hotel stay on St.Pete Bch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

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

I believe this is my 5th year at the Alden and it keeps getting better. To my surprise, they have updated the beds, TVs, and hot tub! Firstly, the beds are better then most high end hotel chains, they are so comfortable and offered a wonderful nights sleep. I do not watch much TV but they replaced their tub-TVs with nice flat screens (if this is important to you!). Lastly, the new hot tub is incredible and they got rid of their secondary hot tub on the second level. This hot tub can likely fit 15 people comfortably!

Only negative I have this year is they replaced the 8 cup coffee maker with a single cup coffee maker. This problem was fixed rather quickly when I call the front desk. Within minutes I had a new 8 cup maker. THANKS!

I will see you next year!

My mom, sister, and I took our first FL beach vacation and we really enjoyed the Alden. When we first walked up to the room my mom was nervous because the outside hallways looked a little rough but I was very surprised when we walked in. We stayed in a deluxe gulf front room with 2 beds and pull out sofa. I loved that it had a kitchenette but the pull out was like sleeping on a box of rocks. The beds were nice though :) It was convenient to the beach and the pool. We rented the cabanas on the beach for $20 and Peter was very nice!! There are many restaurants in the area, subway across the street, a Walgreens and a grocery store in the area also. Their were a couple beach towels in the room which was a plus and they let us have a late checkout so we could enjoy the beach before our late flight. I would definitely stay again and maybe this time have a larger group and stay on the ground floor. If you choose the ground level just be aware of the groups sitting outside your room, they might keep you up at night.

This guest stayed in a completely renovated (just finished in Sep 2013) Deluxe Gulf front suite (AKA the Lanai Suites) and as we speak, we are resurfacing the outside corridor to look and feel brand new!

Sofa sleepers are what they are....usually for the kids who think of them as an adventure in sleeping, but I have yet to find one that is 100% comfortable for adults, although we have brand new ones in this suite type.

Thanks for the kind comments and please come see us again soon!

St. Pete Beach is an outstanding beach and so is Alden Resort. We had a suite with two rooms, making it very private, plus a view of the beach from the living room/kitchenettte and balcony. The mattress and pillows were plush and comfy. No need to drive, just walk to fabulous restaurants, like Snappers, Toaster Monkey. The kitchenette is a plus. The staff will let you use the facilities before check in. Great staff but don't rely on them for directions to places. Bring your own lounge chair to the beach unless you want to spend $20 a day for chairs and umbrella use.

Room Tip: Pick a room facing the ocean, a must.

Perfect location and convenient to everything. Suite was right by pool and easy to walk out to beach as well. Easy walk to a couple other fun local tiki bars on the beach. Would go again without a doubt.
