Stayed week before Christmas in a two bed suite beachfront. Kitchenette had pots and pans, plates cups, silverware. Shopped at Publix nearby. Hotel well maintained, staff friendly and helpful. Cleaning staff was great. Great affordable restaurants within walking distance. Dolphin tours nearby. Two clean heated pools and big whirlpool. This is the place to be!!!

While the place may be a bit outdated, the staff is superb and very helpful! For the price, you can't beat the location and oh my, Chris and David at the Cabana bar are phenominal! Our room was on the first level, walkout to the beach. Bed was very comfy and room was clean albeit outdated but you would be...

Not sure what suite this guest stayed in, but we renovate at least one building every year, so I;m not sure about the "outdated" comment. In any event, Alden Suites is the best "bang for the buck" on St Pete Beach...Get a nice SUITE, for the price most other hotels charge for a "room" At Your Service, Gary Renfrow President...

We had a suite facing the ocean. It was clean and quite nice for the money. We visited during December, so it wasn't filled up. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were clean and neat. The suite had been remodeled. The kitchenette was very nice and useful. There was a duvet on the bed, which I love,...

Very nice comments, thanks! Early December is one of the best times to visit St Pete Beach and Alden Suites...less crowds, low rates, no waiting in line at restaurants, etc...avg high temps in the 70's....Perfect! At Your Service, Gary Renfrow President & part owner

Thank goodness I was only at this place for one night. I assumed I would be provided with some basic toiletries for my $119/night fee. What I got was one tiny little bar of soap on the vanity. They provided a small "hotel" coffeemaker but no coffee to put in it. The room, at first glance seemed nice but thew...

A very disappointing review, to say the least. I have researched the history with our Director of Housekeeping and other Departments as well to find the following: 1) According to our Director of Housekeeping, the full compliment of toiletries were in this Junior King Courtyard Suite, as after check out he verified that there was the soaps , lotions, shampoo...

We were recently in St Pete's and looking for a last minute place to stay. In desperation, we stopped into the Alden Suites. I'm so glad we did. We got an entire suite in a resort location. A bonus was that there were no hidden fees, as the other resort areas like to nail tourists with. Another resort tried to...

Thanks for the 5-star review! Yes, those pesky "resort fees" are everywhere at beach hotels, but not the Alden. We pride ourselves on not "nickel & diming" our guest for services and amenities that are always free at the Alden. Thanks for the kind review, Gary Renfrow President & part owner

This older resort is wonderful. The gulf view is excellent from the lanai. Room is very clean. Bed and linens are good quality. I am so pleased that I chose Alden. The coffee pot is too small..bring instant if you want more than one. Pool is crystal clear and warm. All in all a wonderful stay.

This was our 2nd time staying at the Alden and certainly not our last. The staff is amazing. From check in to check out every staff member said hello or made small conversation.

OMG, what a nice review! This guest is correct in that we are family owned and operated since 1969, and we strive to try harder than the others to keep our repeat guest coming back, in some instances for generations! Constant renovations are the key to maintaining older hotels, and we plan on spending over $850,000 in 2015 for continued...
