Hotel has its pluses and minuses, but the biggest plus is location - it is on the beach. This was a great plus for us that over weighted all minuses. To summarize what we liked: - location: St.Pete beach is a great place in Florida, especially in February. It is not crowded yet and the weather is worm, but not...

WE appreciate all your comments, both positive and negative...a well balance review is hard to find today... Gym use in hotels, according Hotel Business Magazine is down to an all time low of approximately 13%, meaning even if you have a gym / health club on site, only about 13% of hotel guests utilize them. We used to have a...

The Alden is a great hotel if you want to be on the beach, two swimming pools and a fabulous hot tub! The staff was fabulous and the rooms were clean! The pull out couch bed is very uncomfortable that would be my only downfall to this resort.

A friend referred me to the Alden and I am so happy I had asked. Stayed in a Gulf front suite and saved a fortune (both financially and on my waist line) because there is a kitchenette and a fridge so I could eat healthy and plan my meals. The little cabana bar was a delight. Heated pool and spa,...

Thanks so much for the kind review... Late check outs are tough in peak season, since we have to completely strip the suite, clean and re stock, get two inspections done, then get it ready for a 4 PM check in. At Your Service, Gary Renfrow Owner

We've been to St Pete's Beach Florida many many times, first and last time we stay here. Our room was supposedly remodeled but something above our room was leaking through the ceiling over the sink where I was doing my hair. We notified management right away, they supposedly fixed it but happened again next day. I swear the new mattress...

This was truly unfortunate...there was, indeed, a leak above this suite, but it was repaired within 24 hours. The high quality, high cost pillow top mattress is less than 6 months old, so I don't appreciate the 1970's exaggeration. Tough to please all the people all the time! Gary Renfrow Owner

We have stayed at Alden Suites many years now. I can say without question that it's the best value on St. Pete Beach. No resort fees, awesome rooms, staff and location make this the go to place for our family to stay! There are many things to do here as well. You can play shuffleboard, ping pong, and basketball, not...

We went for a long weekend and were pleasantly surprised to find out that this hotel had the best spot for sunsets at their bar! The location is in walking distance to a lot of eateries and bars. The facility is very clean. The beach is beautiful!

We love to stay here because we can play tennis, shuffleboard, ping pong, paddle board, volleyball, or whatever, all without having to pay a dreaded "resort fee". Free parking, too! There are two heated pools and a large hot tub. Plus there's an area to grill out (several grills), and every room has a kitchenette, so you don't have to...

YES! Some one else who hates "resort fees" Why in the hell would anyone agree to paying a daily fee (up to $35 / day) for services and amenities that yo may not even use during your stay? We, at the Alden, are proud to offer numerous services and amenities FREE of charge. The only "extras" charged at the Alden...

Pools and hot tubs were nice! Like I said was a little too pricey for what you get! I did not like having to pay for a cabana and chairs on the beach when paying so much for the suite! Those things should be provided for paying guests!

The cabanas are operated by an independent company. We do not charge "resort fees", like many of the local hotels do, some up to $35 / day WE offer FREE parking, WiFi, Coffee and fruit in the lobby, newspaper, all recreational facilities on site, etc... The Cabana company does offer discounts for multiple day rentals. Thanks, Gary Renfrow Owner

I, too, hope your review helps others to select Alden Suites. You are correct, in that the "entry level" Jr. Suite that you occupied, will be renovated this Fall 2017...all the Gulf front and poolside suites have been totally renovated during 2012-2016.
