Our stay at Alpenrose was wonderful. We stayed there one week before the start of the ski season, were provided with an upgraded room simply because it was available. How nice is that? Breakfast was muffins with cereals, home made cereal bars, fruits, danish with coffee and tea. Went on the gondola on heavenly, it was walking distance and less than a minute by car. Great location. Not far from the Tahoe queen cruises too, less than a five min drive. Will return to stay here, if visiting Tahoe again.
