My partner and I came here for a ski trip. My sister lives in California and decided to come along with us last minute. The staff were very happy to give us a room with a pull out bed so she could join us. Ali in the office was extremely friendly and helpful. We got there on Valentines day and... More

My family and I spent two nights at the Adler Inn over a weekend. From the outside it looked like a standard motel, but the rooms have been remodeled and are clean and super quaint; we loved it! The lady at the front desk in the mornings was super friendly and helpful (the young man in the afternoons, not as... More

The Alder Inn is a small hotel/motel type place. It is strategically located just a few blocks from the main intersection, and about 5-6 minutes from the Gondola at Heavenly and the casinos, and just a long block's walk to a nice restaurant for breakfast. The staff are outstanding! Very friendly and very helpful. They seemed happy to see us... More

We went skiing at Heavenly and chose this hotel because it was close by. The room was great and the staff was very helpful. We arrived after the office closed but they left the key in a box to the side of the office with a note to check in the next morning. We also loved using the hot tub... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Alder Inn. Very nice room, close to skiing at Heavenly (within 3-5 minutes car ride), to Heavenly village and walking distance to some great restaurants such and the Blue Angel. The lady we spoke with in the lobby was extremely nice and positively added to our stay. I can definitely recommend staying... More

We stayed here to do some winter hiking and it was great. The rooms are freakin adorable. I know they look a bit ridiculous but oh my gosh no they're so cute. And you get to pick your room when you book! I love it. Also everything is really comfortable. Sometimes those nice big hotel rooms just end up having... More

It also had a fridge (for the alcohol) and a coffee machine (for the next morning)!! :) the only issue was the wifi wasnt working properly despite them trying to reset... More

I thought that Alder Inn was a great value. My room was huge, the bed was comfy, and the location was decent. I also liked that they had a hot tub. Had I known the area better I probably wouldn't have stayed on the South Lake, but that is not the Alder Inn's fault. They were great!
