Reviewed March 28, 2013

We were here last week and really found it to be a diamond in the rough. Hannah ( the owner) was genuinely wanting to do anything she could and show great interest in what we were doing each day. The room was perfect and well appointed, real value for money.
Karen handled our reservation and enquiries fantastically and has a great sense of humour!
This is now our default place when in SLT. Great location as well, two blocks from the Gondola.

A very pleasant experience....both for our family of 3....and our German Shepherd! The room not only had 2 queen beds,but came with a mini-kitchen with refrigerator, table and sink/counter area. They provided 2 extra sheets so the dog could sleep on the beds. Heating unit worked well on the cold nights. Complimentary toiletries provided were among the best quality we have seen in our travels. A continental breakfast is provided......much better than most with good coffee, a good healthy cereal mixture, pastries and fresh (read not brown) bananas. Location is excellent.....short walk to both Lake Tahoe beach and LakeTahoe Blvd casinos. Will definately stay here next time.

Room Tip: All rooms look equally acceptable......believe travelers with pets are assigned ground floor accomod...

I've always preferred smaller joints when I travel. They just seem to have more personality and I like supporting local small businesses over large corporate owned chain hotels. The Alpenrose Inn was another good choice when I stayed there for several days in February 2013. The staff was very friendly and helpful in providing great local information. The bed was comfortable, the area was quiet, things were very clean... in all, it was a bargain for the price. We will likely stay here again the next time we go to South Tahoe.

We just got back from a three night stay here. It was amazing! Karen, Hannah and John were so friendly and helpful. We brought our small dog with us and they were more than accommodating to her. The room was very cozy and nice. They had a hot tub that was perfect for after a day of skiing. It was very clean and relaxing! The whole staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Not one bad thing to say. We will definitely be coming back here again!

We have stayed at the Alpenrose Inn many times over the past 8 years. It is the only hotel in the area we will stay at because of the nicely decorated rooms, tasty continental breakfasts. dog-friendliness, and overall pleasant atmosphere. Family-friendly but small and quiet. The location is great, right by the gondola for Heavenly ski resort and close to arcades for children, the movie theater, nice shops, and Grocery stores. There is no pool or exercise room but we don't mind, with the nearby hiking trails and other amenities. They have a few videos to rent inexpensively also. Rates are very good for the area.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are nice, depending what you want. They are all different, some dog-friendly like...

The Alpenrose Inn is just located 10 walking minutes to the Gondola at Heavenly, thus once that you park you do not need to move your car again (there are several restaurants and shops close by). The rooms are spacious and clean (nevertheless the walls are thin). They have a pettit and pretty clean hot tub to relax after a long skiing day. The breakfast is well served. But the most precious thing is that the management of the Alpenrose Inn is gracious, courteous and efficient, we will go back for sure in our next skiing trip.

Hannelore, the owner and manager of Alpenrose inn gives each room its personal touch and make a stay a real good experience. We planned to stay a couple of days and remained almost two weeks because of the great ambience of the Hotel and the kind and efficient support we got from Manager and Staff of the hotel. We now plan to go back and stay there for one month!
