Getting to South Lake Tahoe from Southern California has gotten much easier since Jet Blue has opened a daily flight to Reno. After landing and taking the 75 minute South Lake Tahoe shuttle ($29 a person), you arrive in one of the nicer resort cities in California (without driving the 8.5 hours from LA). My recommendation for accommodations starts and... More

Perfect location, clean fresh and tidy room. Very helpful and obliging owner who didn't mind the fact we would not be arriving until late into the night, and after driving non stop from Vegas to south Lake Tahoe the Alder inn was a very very welcome site! And in daylight we discovered it even has a pool and jacuzzi outside!!

We stayed at Alder Inn for three nights in August. I was initially worried about the lack of air conditioning, but no worries: at night, the cool air from the lake cools the room quickly (with help from a fan). Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff are very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and activities. My favorite... More

We loved staying at this little inn. The room was spotless. We loved the smoke-free environment and sweet little touches to this quaint Inn! Not only was our stay wonderful so were the little touches! I loved the Bath & Body Works products! The owners are wonderful.. I cannot say enough about our experience.

My wife and I and our small service dog were looking for a place in Lake Tahoe to celebrate our 25th anniversary and we also wanted to view the Perseid meteor shower. We chose the Alder Inn and could not have been happier. Our room was cozy and a little dark, but we had a fridge, Keurig coffee maker, a... More

First, let me say people from Florida can live without a/c! The evenings are very cool and the rooms cool down quickly. The rooms are all being redone, and they are nice. Best surprise of all is that from our room (16) we could not hear ANY outside traffic. That was a shock. Very quiet. Finally, the owners run the... More

The best thing about this place are the owners (Mike and Laura?). They were so welcoming and warm, and generous with suggestions of nearby places to eat. The rooms are typical motel size (small), but very clean and comfortable. The location is good. You can walk to a number of restaurants and the lake is just a couple blocks away.... More

The new owners have done an outstanding job in renovating this very well located facility. You feel at home as everything has been particularly chosen to make you feel that way. Everything is done to make your stay enjoyable. You're a 5 minutes walk away from the main Soutth Tahoe location where you can find everything you want: boating, shopping,... More

This is a very cute and clean property. Although the rooms are a little small, that was fine for us. Each room includes a microwave and a mini-fridge. The room was cute and very clean. The location is very convenient to the beach and several restaurants. The owners were very nice and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
