The inn is small , 24 units 2 blokes from the lake and right at the base of the mountains, great eating places walking distance... More

The Alder Inn was reasonably priced, very clean, and quiet. Pool and hot tub were relaxing and more than ample in size for the property. The owners were friendly and offered great tips for dining and excursions for recreation.

Although not a major resort hotel, staying at this 24 unit inn in a comfortable, well decorated and maintained room along with a home like parking area containing sitting areas, barbeques, free bicycles, a ping pong table, chest set, basketball court, etc., etc was a delight. Not to mention the beautiful surrounding mountain trees, walking distance to restaurants, the ski... More

So sorry for the late review, we stayed here as a group of 8 over the Christmas period and I really must say the staff are so friendly and attentive to your needs. The food is fantastic and it's located on the main high street which helps as there is everything on your door step. The rooms are so warm... More

We go to Tahoe every summer and spend most of our time on the West Shore but usually spend a night or two on the South Shore. We usually stay a little farther out to avoid the casino crowd. Decided to try the Alder Inn this year and we're happy that we did. The location is great. Close to the... More

This is a delightful Inn. It has been recently renovated. The rooms are charming and the landscaping outside is lovely. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I do not normally write reviews, but I just loved this place.

Couple this with free bikes to ride to the lake, a good-sized pool and hot tub and bocce ball court, you can't beat this for value and... More

We booked the Alder Inn not quite knowing what to expect since there are so many places to choose from around Tahoe. We were lucky to find this gem! Across the street from the beach, marina and close to several restaurants. The rooms were clean, we had no issues with wifi and the owners, Mike and Laura, were friendly and... More

This place was very charming and had a wonderful homie feel to it. Walking distance to the beach, bars, and restaurants. We only were able to stay one night, because we had family that rented a cabin otherwise we would have stayed through the duration of the trip. The owner Mike and his wife were extremely friendly and gave excellent... More

Enjoyed our stay here. Few minutes walk to the lake front. Many restaurants nearby. Nice and clean room, good hosts and well maintained property. Good place to stay for a short trip. Just a small issue, bathroom door was making noise while opening.
