I recently relocated to South Lake Tahoe from Southern California and chose to stay at the Alder Inn based on reviews from this site, while looking for a place to live. I initially booked my room for 5 days with the hopes that I could rent a permanent location as quickly as possible. I booked online and noticed the office... More

I almost don't want to write this review because I don't want anyone else to find out about our secret spot in Tahoe. Off the main drag and on the way to the California Heavenly Base, Alder Inn is far and away the best value I've ever gotten in Tahoe for a hotel room. This rooms are clean, well decorated... More

We've been staying at Alder almost every weekend and enjoying the close proximity to the mountain, the hot tub and the cozy (very clean) rooms. The staff is incredibly helpful and super sweet. Love the coffee in the morning to get us pumped for skiing. Can't wait to return next weekend :-)

The staff was very friendly and concerned for our comfort. The rooms are a bit worn (the carpets especially) but overall are very well kept (possibly very recently renovated). We stayed 3 nights and had no trouble at all. We took the Zebra room and liked it :) My 5 year old son enjoyed the art and the zebra patterns... More

We have stayed in several places in South Lake Tahoe and we really enjoyed the Alder Inn. Each of the rooms has its own decor style, which is a nice personal touch. Our room had a large sink area that included a Keurig coffee maker, microwave, and small fridge--very convenient. We enjoyed using the hot tub in the evenings after... More

We managed to get a last minute reservation at this place for the 4th july weekend. The Inn is rather small but the location wins it all. For the price, the amenities were good and it was a rather short walk to all the fun stuff. The rooms are spacious and have all basics like coffee maker, iron board, space... More

Tried the Alder in for the first time recently. The staff was really warm and friendly, the room was nice and very comfortable, and the location was great. My only regret is that we only stayed one night. We'll be back.

Stayed for one night in tahoe for a ski weekend. Staff were very welcoming. Very nice rooms - cozy and well appointed with coffee machine and fridge. Great location for skiing. Really enjoyed our stay - would recommend to people looking for good value accommodation near the slopes. Hot tub too!

We stayed only one night but the staff was excellent and room was very clean. The jacuzzi is open till 10pm and is great for after a long day of snowboarding. It's very close to pretty much everything in town. I would for sure stay here again in the future!

The inn's staff was very cordial, helping us with places to dine, where to get cross-country and downhill ski equipment, where to get buses to ski the mountain and reminding us about enjoying their wonderful outdoor jacuzzi. We spent our Christmas vacation here. The hotel was centrally located. We could get a bus right out the front door up to... More
