If you're looking for algorithms with real code, Sedgewick is pretty good.

Disclaimer: I haven't actually seen this edition, which uses Java. My old edition uses C.

Disclaimer #2: I still look into my copies of Sedgewick and Knuth fairly regularly. CLR(S), not so much. Your mileage may vary.

I've used Algorithms by S. Dasgupta, C.H. Papadimitriou, and U.V. Vazirani for the course they teach at Berkeley and didn't like it at all. I'm a pretty big fan of Algorithms by Sedgewick. There is a class on Cousera is also taught by Sedgewick and uses the book. The first half of the book follows a traditional data structures course and the second half a traditional algorithms course.

Some people might find it as a downside but the book was written with Java in mind. I personally didn't mind this at all.

I learned from Sedgewick

However, it was a much earlier edition and all the examples are in Pascal. Having to mentally convert the code from 1-based arrays to 0-based like any decent language has been a major pain over the years.

This looks like a C version:
