We needed somewhere for an overnight stop and found Alpenrose on Tripadvisor. I confess that, from the outside, I was not sure it would live up to the reviews. I was so pleasantly surprised by our room. It was on the first floor , was large with a comfortable bed , small kitchen area and gas fire. Although it was May , it was so cold we were delighted to warm ourselves by the fire before bed. Great location - easy walking distance to bars and restaurants. Such a lovely place to stay and the breakfast in the morning was simple but enough. Would highly recommend this for a stopover in South Lake Tahoe.
