We found the room to have everything we would need. The room was clean, bed comfortable, we took the opportunity to use the on-site grill and enjoy a nice dinner among the trees. The manager Chris brought us towels to the hot tub and took a moment to connect with us. Truly a wonderful weekend away. It's close to everything... More

Both my wife and I were in a big road trip from TX to CA and South Lake Tahoe was one of our scheduled stops for sleeping. We spent quite some time looking for a place to stay in South Lake Tahoe that would be close to the route we were taking and that would have some good accommodations. All... More

Not really sure why I waited so long to try this place out. I was looking for a last-minute place to say for a weekend trip to Tahoe. I like to be close to dining and the casinos, but every place on Lake Tahoe Blvd. is usually really expensive. I decided to give the Alder Inn a shot. I would... More

This was our first trip to Lake Tahoe, and it more than exceeded our expectations. The rooms are super clean, and beautifully decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept on. The office staff was so friendly and helpful. The manager, Chris, made sure that our every need was anticipated. It was so refreshing... More

Alder Inn was a nice place to relax. Front staff was incredible nice and helpful. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Plenty of hot water. Only complaint was the noise the heater made. Ski Run Blvd is busy street but great location. We would stay again

The Alder inn is an older motel with thin walls and doors directly open to the parking lot. The staff however is excellent with their local advice, willing to serve, and set a nice weekend Continental breakfast. The rooms are updated with great colors, bed sheets, flat screen tv, microwave and fridge. Very close to heavenly ski resort

We were staying here for 3 nights and the experience was great. Don't be fooled by its outside, its interior was nice, with pretty beds and decorations. The staff were friendly and introduced us to places that are worth visiting. They made the beds and changed fresh towels every day, which was really good. Love this place. A bit problem... More

We were there in low season, so had the place to ourselves and excellent service. Helped me find a separate room for a 2 hr. client session on Skype, had a bottle of champagne for my girlfriend and I when we arrived, helped me print something out on the computer, let us check out late... The kind of place where... More

Excellent value for money accommodation. Friendly staff and ideal position for exploring the lake Tahoe area. Rooms were nice and warm which is needed for a winter stay. Room decor suited us and of a more than adequate size. Nice and clean also.

When we drove up we were not sure if we were gonna like this hotel. The office personal were so friendly. We checked into our room and wow how cute! So cute and comfortable! We will for sure stay at this hotel again.
