It is in a very convenient location and the rooms were delightful. Could not ask for more assistance. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants and is only minutes from town. The care taker went out of his way to ensure that we were welcome and gave us great advice for eating out and where the best... More

We received a warm welcome on arrival by the owner and were presented with a clean and comfortable room. The Alder Inn is in an excellent location, close to Lake Tahoe, the main strip and a convenient parade of restaurants and shops. The stay was extremely enjoyable and comes highly recommended.

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the Alder Inn and everything lived up to our expectations. The room was as shown in the photos, everything was very clean and well maintained. When I was having trouble with the wifi not working they actually moved or installed an additional access point. I wish the rain would have allowed us to take... More

Our stay was excellent from the moment we drove in the parking lot, where we were warmly welcomed and check in was very easy. The location is perfect for exploring Lake Tahoe in the spring, and right at the foot of the ski slopes for the winter season. There are restaurants within walking distance, and the steaming hot tub and... More

We enjoyed our stay very much and experienced the best service. We especially liked how personally the rooms were furnished and kept absolutely clean. The best surprise was certainly that we could use the free beach cruiser bikes which were just perfect for our afternoon at Lake Tahoe. Thanks a lot and we plan to come back :-)

A block or two off the main drag is this hidden gem of a motel, where each room is individually decorated with a wonderful retro vibe. Friendly pleasant staff, quiet location, good value. Delightful experience.

Had a great time here with my wife. Staff was great and very helpful when it came to directions and recommendations. The place has a cozy, quaint feel to it and a farmers market right down the street.

We've stayed here several times and you won't get a better looking place for the price and location. The rooms are unique and nicely remodeled. Highly recommend the Alder Inn. Love that it's a short walk down to Riva Grill.

We had a great stay at Alder Inn. The room was comfortable and homely, with good amenities. There were two good pubs in walking distance, and lots of other food options. Best of all though was that the front desk guy was incredibly helpful....great knowledge of the area, best places to go, and how to get around. Top bloke.
