Alden Suites on St. Petersburg Beach is a Relaxing Retreat: Enter Our Giveaway for 2 Nights!

Hi everyone!

We were invited a couple of weeks back for a night at the Alden Suites on St. Petersburg Beach. Until we were invited, I’d not heard of the resort and only knew what to expect from some quick online research. I am familiar with St. Petersburg Beach from living in the St. Pete/Clearwater area for 17 years through 2001, but Alden Suites was off my radar. I was VERY pleasantly suprised by this resort, which boasts 141 one-bedroom suites. The hotel itself was much larger than I expected, with really nicely landscaped walkways and a jacuzzi that is almost pool sized (15 guests can fit). Not that I had jacuzzi time this trip, we wanted to make sure to have enough photos and videos to share! There are quite a few other activities, including tennis, beach volleyball and shuffleboard. The resort is beachfront, just steps away from the Gulf of Mexico. There are also newly refurbished beach bungalows, which are essentially small homes (those do not overlook the beach).

Before we accepted the one night stay, I did what I always do – I checked reviews online. With 4 or better out of 5 stars on sites like TripAdvisor, I knew Alden Suites was one I should be able to recommend to our readers and viewers. Honestly, it still exceeded what I expected for a beach hotel and earns its hashtag of #AldenWow. And we do have a contest as well to give away 2 nights! Read below for more information on the hotel and to enter the contest at the end of the article! The contest ends October 15th, 2018 at midnight and I will notify the winner October 16th. Even if you don’t win, you can save money on the Alden Suites.

Our one-night stay was in a beachfront suite – this is how close the hotel is to the beach! Not all suites have this view, there are a variety of views available and the contest is for a pool view suite.

Here is a video of our suite.

Looking to the left.

It was really nice to have a balcony with a beach view to relax on.

There were two rooms separated by the bathroom area in our suite. The bedroom was fairly dark, which was nice at night for sleeping. The main room with kitchen and seating was very bright, with a lot of light coming in. For me, that is perfect.

Our trip included a sunset boat ride from Suncoast Watersports. The company is very highly rated for various activities – they also rent those seats on the beach that you can see in the photo.

The weather was threatening but soon we ended up with a gorgeous sunset. The boat ride was really nice, and the prices are reasonable.

Here is a look at one of the pools at Alden Suites, there are two heated pools here.

This is one of the Beach Bungalows – it’s like having a small Florida home to yourself, but on the property of Alden Suites. They are not beachfront.

Suncoast Watersports was out with guests parasailing. We didn’t try any watersports this trip.

The Cabana Bar is very popular, especially in the evening. There are some food items at a truck, but Alden Suites doesn’t have a restaurant – there are plenty within a walk or very short drive. We were treated to some items from Snappers, which is a well regarded restaurant on St. Pete Beach. And if you are looking for groceries, Publix can deliver through the Instacart app. Publix has great subs and fried chicken, it is the grocery store I frequent most.

Here is the contest, followed by more hotel information!

We have a certificate to mail out for a 2 night stay in a Poolside One Bedroom Suite. There are limitations, it is valid Sunday-Thursday only, reservations are accepted within 30 days prior to arrival, subject to availability. Not valid during peak periods of February, March and April nor over Holiday periods. Those are the main rules of the certificate, and it expires December 19th, 2019 – so there is plenty of time to use it.

To win, follow the Mousesteps Instagram account and head to our Instagram photo of St. Petersburg Beach outside Alden Suites. Let me know in the comments what your favorite beach activity is! The contest ends October 15th, 2018 at midnight and I will notify the winner on October 16th, 2018. Good luck!

Following the Alden Suites logo, you can find more details about the hotel. We were invited for the one night including food and the boat cruise, but all opinions are mine. I take your vacation dollars seriously and I feel the Alden Suites offers a lot of value for the money. We plan to return on our own next time.
