Were there for 2 nights on a big road trip, this is a wonderful place. Chris took us up to our room when we checked in to show it to us, how many hotels/motels do that? A few blocks down to the lake, lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The hot tub is awesomely hot, nice pool, just... More

Great 1 night stay at the Alder Inn. My fiancee and I were in Tahoe for a friend's wedding and we enjoy good value properties. Room was clean and hosts friendly. They let us borrow an iron and ironing board. The breakfast was good and coffee strong. We would stay again.

A nice little hotel just off the water. No a/c but nights are cool. Nicely decorated. Nice touches like chocolates and Kuerig coffee. One disappointment is the continental breakfast is only on weekends?? Were right next to the office. Too noisy! Other than that it is above average. Thin walls also.

Don't let the term motel put you off. This is essentially what it is but each room is individually themed and immaculately clean. I think we stayed in room 21 on the end of the second floor. The room was kitted out like a log cabin with lots of sweet bear paraphernalia. I wish we could stay in that room... More

Do not let the outside disappoint you! It looks a bit rough on the outside but the service, staff and area is perfect. There is an area within 5 minutes of walking which jet ski rentals and much more are available. Restaurants are in walking distance as well.

We found this place by our Hertz GPS and we then checked it out on on Trip Advisor, as I generally try to do. This was everything good that others have said about it. We had no reservation and relied on our phone call w/ the manager to insure we had a room. He was very accommodating, as we were... More

This place was a great find! There were 3 couples in our party each with a different room decor which are all well looked after and so clean. Coffee machine in the room and continental breakfast served, only recommendation for them would be a safe in the room for passports. Good location, staff couldn't be more helpful would definitely stay... More

Let me begin with the hotel staff. Chris, the manager, is obviously proud of this hotel as he personally showed us our room after check in. And, he has reason to be. There is nothing snooty about this place. It is a smaller hotel that's tucked away from the hustle of the Tahoe bustle to feel as cozy as it... More

We went up there last weekend for an Eagles concert and had 2 rooms. Was really impressed at the accommodations. They have done each room in different themes. The rooms are very comfortable and had nice amenities inside. Flat screen TV, kuerig coffee machine, microwave, frig, wine glasses and bottle opener, pool and hottub. Was very pleased with our stay.... More
