We stayed at the Alder over Memorial Day weekend in 2013. The room was good and it had clearly been updated recently excluding the bathroom and entry doors. We stayed in a room on the second floor near the office.
The new owners had just purchased the Inn earlier in the month and had moved from Florida with a 2 year old and an infant so they have a busy personal life but still have great plans to continue the updates for the Inn focusing on the exterior. The new owners were very nice and helpful. The Inn is within walking distance of the beach with restaurants near the beach and also on Ski Run Blvd.
If my wife and I are in the area again we would definitely stay here again.
