“Feels like home”
Reviewed 22 June 2009

We've been to St Pete Beach before, but usually stayed at a larger hotel - this time we chose the Alden because of the good reviews it had gotten. The hotel is not the newest or the prettiest on the strip, but the grounds are well kept, the staff is awesome and it's small enough to make you feel "at home". We would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay.

My first time to St Pete Beach and was glad I found this resort. Perfect location on the beach which seemed right in the heart of the area. I was able to walk to several different casual bars and restaurants. Everyone at the front desk was very friendly and always eager to assist with any questions. Definitely will return!

The Alden was a nice place, We stayed 3 nights in a Bermuda Suite on the 2nd floor. The room was spacious, lots of room for our 2 year old to run around. The decor was really dated. The room overall was clean, but the carpet was gross. Our feet were dirty after walking on the carpet barefoot. I'm sure they clean the carpet, but if it's not rinsed well, it gets sticky, attracting more dirt. The beach was great!! That's what we were there for. It's not a long walk at all. The pools are very nice, we always used the one by the beach, it was shallower. I think the gulf view rooms may be worth it for the sunset and beach sounds alone!! The Dollar Tree, down Gulf Blvd to the right out of the resort is a great find to stock up on what you will need for your stay. We didn't use their dishes, we bought disposable from dollar tree. Great cheap beach toys for kids too!! Overall, we had a great time at the Alden.

We have travelled to St. Pete beach on 7 different occasions but never stayed in a gulf side hotel until our last visit in May '09. Chose the Alden based on reviews, price etc but unfortunately we were very disappointed. Location is great, hotel is basic enough but the complete lack of sound proofing between floors completely ruined our week. We had a ground floor Bermuda Suite and had to listen to every footstep made by occupants of 1st floor suite above us. On first night there was constant traffic above until after midnight, this then resumed at 5am next morn. Next morning we requested a change of room but were informed that the hotel was full and that the Bermuda Suites were fully booked for week ahead. While the guests above us changed the noise did not....constant foot traffic could be heard from 6.30am each morning, not what we expected for our planned restful vacation.

The room was redone, the location to the beach was great. A great family resort. Many restaurants within walking distance. The only complaint which is nothing is the elevators are really slow. Also, no music at Tiki Bar but great drinks.

We having staying @ the alden 3 times over the last 6 years, have been going to ST Pete beach annually for over 15 years. For the price break, this is the best overall value on the beach.
The exterior may be tired, but the staff maintains the grounds and the rooms well. what is nice is just about all the rooms have a separate bedroom space, so you can put the kids to bed and relax, not worrying about waking them up. There is shuffleboard, tennis on property, and it always fits in that these activities are eventually available during our stay. The front desk is excellent, they just have can do atmosphere when ever you talk to them. the pools are okay, nothing fancy, but there always seems to be enough chairs for everyone in the area. We've used the outdoor grills, nice option to have.
to me it is a great place to use as a base for st pete beach. Combine this hotel with day trips trip to Fort Desoto and Lowery park zoo, and you have created some great family memories of Tampa-st pete.
