This was my second time staying at the Alder Inn and I came back because I was so impressed by my first visit last year. This place is kept very clean and each room has very homey decor and a comfy feel. The location is also awesome because it is just off the main road around the lake, so it... More

I came here with high expectations, since it was showing as #3 of all properties in SLT on TripAdvisor. Mostly, it met my expectations, but I wasn't thrilled. The good; the property is pretty nice, located off of the main road and close to the Nevada state line and SLT marina and beaches. This was a summer trip, but it... More

Every time we have stayed here they have gone out of their way to be welcoming. We have stayed at many overpriced hotels, and none compare to the hospitality at Alder Inn. The owners truly care about your experience, and the management are absolutely dedicated and it shows. Thanks for another wonderful stay!!

Cute little converted motel with free bike rentals, a ping pong table and a heated pool. We stayed in the Alder Room over the office. Big enough to spread out a little and great porch for watching the stars. Unfortunately United lost our luggage and couldn't seem to give us an accurate time of delivery. The hotel front desk was...

We really enjoyed this hotel. The manager was very friendly and even took us to our room, he gave us all the information we needed. This was a short stay for us to see an outdoor concert at Harvey's. Can't wait to go back and ride the bikes that are available to guests. The hotel has been updated with everything... More

The Hotel hosts could not have been more accommodating. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The vibe is very casual and friendly. Did I mention the hosts were accommodating? We won't hesitate to return!

We stayed at Alder Inn for 2 nights before we moved into the house that our nephew had rented for us. It was very cozy and comfortable. It was nice that it was not one of the national chains. It felt very personal. We truly enjoyed our stay there.

Most attractive interior of any motel. Very friendly host, close to the marina for good food. At 5:30 AM we watched a bear amble by our 2nd floor room, a special treat! Easy access from the highway and a quiet location. Reasonably priced and an unexpected prize. Would stop here anytime I was nearby.

Just the cutest place. Rooms are gorgeous. First time I have ever stayed in a hotel with no AC but really not needed at all. Very cool nights and comfortable days. So inexpensive but does not look it. The rooms are decorated beautifully. Everyone was so nice. Hot Tub was great. Everything clean and comfy. Would so go back again.... More
