“Lovely staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

After trying another place to stay at after 8pm we managed to book into Alpenrose. Staff were great- even got out breakfast for us again because we were running late! Thanks again! Got extra help with where to eat dinner and what to do the next day. Highly recommend.

Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple

Nice, clean, fresh rooms... Spacious as well... Bed sheets are awesome!
Gave us never ending clean towels during our 5 night stay.
Came with our 2 little dogs and 4 adults and had a good time during our stay at this Inn.
About 3 blocks away from Heavenly gondola if you take a short cut right next by an empty lot.
Walking distance (if you like walking) to the grocery store, some restaurants, shops and to cross to The stateline to Nevada.
They have continental breakfast, cereal,pastries, coffee and fruits if you're into those.
We got a room with a lil kitchenette (table/chairs, mini fridge, toaster, coffee maker, utensils and a sink). Free Wifi was great also...
Bathroom was spacious also and super clean. Lots of room space for clothing and luggage to store.
Next time I go with my family for another snowboarding trip, I will definitely book here again!!!
Shot out for Hannah for her great place ALPENROSE INN !

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are fantastic, just depends on your needs ie: big groups, have a pet etc

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...
