Loved my 3 day week-end Would have been perfect if they had more parking! Room sleeps 6 and friends came to visit but you have to search out off site parking. I loved the beach...clean....friendly....nobody helpful with additional off site parking.

Sounds like all went well, except for the parking issue... We meet or exceed all local City codes for parking requirements (1.1 space per available suite). The parking only seems to be an issue when a guest invites several visitors and they expect that all should be able to park (for free) and bring in as many cars as they... More

We've stayed here twice before and loved it enough to come back a 3rd time. Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say we won't be coming back again. We have ants in our room.

This place has it's positives and negatives. First, the positives, he beach front location is great and our beds were comfy, most people were nice. Having a kitchen was nice, not all rooms have them so ask. Second, the negatives, always request 3-6 floors if you want a beach view. The rooms are outdated, but were clean. There is no... More

Thanks for the review comments, allow me to address a few: The Bartender issue: Ar check in, we give each suite a "buy one get one free" drink coupon to be be redeemed at the beach bar on property.

We had five rooms at The Alden for a family reunion. The rooms were decent. It is nice to have a kitchen and a view of the gulf. I would suggest replacing the coffee makers with regular size coffee makers. While there is a K-Cup in the lobby, it would be nice to have better coffee in the rooms. I... More

I am pleased to hear how well your family reunion went at the Alden... Thanks for the nice comments. We, like the vast majority of hotels nationwide, have decided to eliminate the full size coffee makers in the suites for a number of legitimate reasons.

My family has stayed at the Alden since 1982 and has come to think of it as our second home. The rooms are clean, often renovated, and fully equipped for a long stay.

We chose a 1 bedroom suite with a pool view. I would definitely spring for the Gulf view room at this place.

Good review, interesting comments.... 1) Suite configuration: This guest stayed in a one bedroom poolside suite (AKA Nassau Suite).

We just returned from our annual trip to St Pete's. We always stay at the Alden and it consistently meets our needs.
