Alder Inn is a total gem and Chris made us feel so welcome. It was clear that he takes pride and joy in looking after his guests.The room was decorated with so many personal touches such as a good coffee machine, flowers, a small basket with toothapaste, headache pills etc, chocolates - you really did feel at home here !...

More than we expected. Lots on the room itinerary, including toothpaste, chocolates, good coffee machine, fridge and much more. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Free bike hire. Excellent hot tub too.

My son and I spent one night at the Alder Inn on our way home from a motorcycle school in Folsom, CA. I should note that my son's name is Alder so my decision to stay here was not entirely unbiased! However, we were both very happy with the property in general and our room in particular. The location is... More

We were attending a wedding, and we needed a place close to the ceremony, because we had to bring the kids & sitter. The price per night, was slightly higher than I normally pay, but again it needed to serve, a specific purpose. The check in time is very specific (3-6p.m.) I called at 6:18, and they told me where... More

Wonderful...cozy place. Everything was in place for our stay. There was nothing missing. Keurig coffee, free bikes, great location and warm hospitality made our stay 5 star. By the way, the free WiFi worked flawlessly. Will definitely recommend.

Chris was great and showed us to our room, the Zebra Room, as soon as we got there. The place is in a great location with some fantastic restaurants and shops within walking distance. We spent two days and walked every where. Great pool and spa and well worth the price, which was very reasonable for this nice place.

Chris, the manager, was WONDERFUL! He gave us some great ideas on places to go and was always there to answer questions, fix the tv that I somehow broke, and taught me how to use the coffee maker (lol!). The room was very comfortable, with great amenities, and beautifully decorated. We will be staying here again...that's a promise!

The Alder Inn was a delightful place to stay. It was unique, clean, and well stocked with the little extras. When traveling we like to support the locally owned establishments, and the Alder Inn did not disappoint us. The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to eat and things to do. The location was close to... More

I chose the Safari-themed room for my boyfriend and I to have a nice mid-week getaway (we also attended a friend's wedding). The different design of each room is what drew me to this hotel. It was a tough decision of which room to choose and the online pictures do this hotel no justice. Each room is masterfully crafted and... More

We had a great visit to Tahoe and stayed at the Alder Inn. It was clean, close to shops, restaurants, and the beach. They had complimentary bicycles to ride. Very nice staff. Pool stays open late. Would come back.
