Nice spacious rooms with plenty of beds and large kitchen/kichenettes. Clean. AC works great! Staff is very accommodating and helpful. Covered Garage Parking! That's the best especially in the Florida heat! Close to beach and lots of cool beach bars and restaurants within walking distance. Love my stay here.

Overall this is a fine hotel. Proximity to the beach is a bonus, and being located on the 'strip,' there are many amenities within walking distance or a short drive away. The building itself could use some updating: everything from the elevators to areas around the grounds, exterior painting, etc. Housekeeping was also a bit of an issue. There never...

Renovations to beach front hotels is a never ending process...We take great pride in our landscaping and it's upkeep and get rave reviews from most guests, in that regard. Touch up painting projects are ongoing year round, as well as elevator maintenance, but I am sorry to hear that this was an issue during your stay with us. I personally...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights as a mini vacation. On the plus side. The suite we had was a decent sized one bedroom unit. The hotel is on the beach. The pools were nice and the landscaping was well maintained. The downside. Noise. This was one of the noisiest places we've stayed. Between the thin walls...

Get a SUITE for the price of a room! Thanks very much, we know we are perfect for families trying to save money by not having to get 2 rooms when a big suite can handle the whole gang! Thanks again, Gary Renfrow President & part owner

Thanks very much! Yes, one of the finest dog beaches in the country is located at Ft. DeSoto Park, just a short drive from Alden Suites, and we offer 9 (first come first serve) dog friendly suites on the ground floor of the Courtyard Suites building... Many happy returns!

We stayed at the Alden Suites last week. We had initially booked a room poolside; however, upon arrival, we learned that those rooms had not been renovated and we decided to upgrade to the Gulfside suites. The room was small but pleasant with an efficiency kitchenette. King bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean and decent sized. Not a luxury...

Appreciate the nice comments....However, just as a matter of fact, the Courtyard suites were fully renovated in 2010 and the poolside suites were fully renovated in 2007, with a soft renovation in 2011, but will be further renovated this fall, starting immediately after Labor Day...all new kitchens and bathrooms. Please see #618 as our sample renovation of the poolside suites...

I stayed at Alden for a business trip for three consecutive weekdays. I knew before I arrived that I would have to tolerate the grimy-ness of beach front "resorts" but even with that expectation I found this place to be pretty filthy. The rooms seem to be converted 1970's motel-style suites with outdoor entry access. My room was filled with...

Wow, sorry to read this review... This guest had preconceived notions that beachfront resort hotels are a "grimy mess" so let's just start with that comment. It sounds like an unhappy guest before she even checked in. Typically, beachfront resort hotels in the summer are packed with families, many with their kids on summer vacation, so it seems odd to...
