We found this gem thanks to past guests that posted reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived a bit early but the staff eagerly prepared our room and went out of their way to accommodate us. Our room was very clean and beautifully decorated. Each room has it's own theme. The rooms have obviously been updated very recently. Our beds were... More

This is a very nice and accommodating Hotel, they tended to my every need for my short stay. It is conveniently located and there is nothing the staff will not do for you. The manager Taylor went out of her way to make sure my stay was excellent. They even allowed me to check out a hour late so that... More

Was very nice. the pool and spa were immaculate and warm. The front desk clerk, Ashley, was very helpful and informative. Beautiful quiet location. Off the beaten path with wonderful pines. I would go back again.

The bed was out of this world comfy and the location is brilliant. Literally 3 minute walk from the beach and small shops. Has on sight parking for free and free wifi. To improve the place it needs air con as it gets very warm and takes til midnight to cool the room.

Recently we stayed at the Alder Inn at Ski Run Blvd, South Lake Tahoe. This was a very nice inn almost in the center of town, well run by friendly people. It just happened to be during the "Hot August Nights" in So. Lake Tahoe and part of the car show was directly across our hotel. It was fun walking... More

We checked in July 29th and planned to stay a full 6 nights there. The rooms decor is very nice. We were very happy with what they offer for that, coffee mugs, glasses, and wine glasses. However, the cleaning service was terrible. All they do is make your bed. The entire week they didn't change the sheets or wash any... More

Alder Inn appears to have been merely a motel at one time. But during the past year or so, the new owners did some updating to the rooms and surrounding grounds. We had the Audrey Hepburn-themed room, which was very nicely decorated. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were a nice size, and there was a small refrigerator and microwave... More

I have to say for a little local inn, Alder is absolutely adorable and charming. The location is perfect. It is walking and driving distance from everything (lake, restaurants, casino, gondola, shops, etc.). The price was right and I found the decor and space to be just what we needed. They also have a pool/hot tub outside. Not big, but... More

We stayed at the Alder Inn for one night. For a boutique motel the room was nice and had everything we needed. We were running late, luckily we called ahead because we found out the reception closes at 5pm. This is a ridiculously early time to close. The main problem for us was when we arrived late at night we... More

You can't judge a book by its cover. The outside isn't anything overly special but then you walk into your room and truly feel like you are in a friends guest room. It is so nicely decorated and so comfortable that you will want to stay. All the small touches make it so different from most places you might stay.... More
