I stayed at the Alpenrose Inn last February (Feb. 3, 2008) and forgot to write a review on this great little gem at south Lake Tahoe. Last weekend (Feb. 7-8, 2009), I stayed again at the Alpenrose Inn with two friends. We are so glad to come back to this quaint little inn at south Lake Tahoe. We stayed a... More

The Alpenrose is within walking distance from the Heavenly Gondola, so you don't have to worry about driving and parking to go to Heavenly or the nearby shops. The inn keeper is a lovely and super friendly Swiss German lady who did everything she could to make our stay pleasant. The rooms were simple and clean, bathroom was properly stocked... More

My friend and I spent one night here as part of a 3 week trip around California. Considering it was the cheapest night of our trip, we couldn't have expected anything better than what we got. The room was fairly basic but had a quaint atmostphere and was comfortable & cosy considering it was fairly chilly outside. The Alpenrose is... More

We discovered the Alpenrose on TripAdvisor. Thank you for the wonderful reccommendation!! We were not dissappointed. Yes, the motel is older. Big deal. For us, that was part of the wonderful charm of the place. If you're looking for the Hyatt, Marriott, or the Ritz, then no you won't like it! There wasn't a day that we were there that... More

I dont know what the other people are raving about but the place is very outdated and the prices are very high for the area. The manager/owner is terrible and overberring to guest that complain about anythihg.

My husband and I stayed at Alpenrose Inn for 2 nights in September 2008. We were initially pleasantly surprised by the decor and cleanliness. The beds were not hard and stiff like most hotels/motels but were very comfortable. The motel also had nice olive green sheets that were very soft -- not rough and starched like most other motels. The... More

I say 'ditto' to the positive reviews from others. We were most impressed by the genuine interest they took in our travels. We got two valuable sightseeing tips that enhanced our visit. One tip was given during checkout, when most motels are just interested in conducting the checkout process. After asking us where we were headed, we were urged to... More

A very nice property. Well maintained and cared for. The owner is charming and all the staff who work for her were excellent. It seemed as though they were all part of a team and enjoyed their work. Our room was a standard and very nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable. The motel is in a residential area and... More

After reading the good reviews on tripadvisor, we booked 3 nights at the Alpenrose, and were not disappointed. The location is excellent, being away from the noisy drag of South Lake Tahoe, and the room was of a good size, well appointed, and spotlessly clean. The owner, Hannah, was very helpful pointing out good restaurants, and things to see and... More

This a nice little hotel in a great, quiet location away from the traffic noises. However, I stayed in room #3, and it could have been much better. The room had a strange smell to it. After a while you wouldn't notice it so much. To me it smells like mildew. Maybe the hotel should have that checked out. Also,... More
