Alpenrose Inn
Ranked #14 of 66 Hotels in South Lake Tahoe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We have now had the opportunity to stay three times over a couple of years at the Alpenrose Inn- each trip has been wonderful. Hannah and the rest of her staff are always cheerful upon our arrival and ready with helpful advice about the area. Their recommendations have been "on target" each time. The rooms are CLEAN, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Despite being across the street from a "chain" hotel, theirs is quiet and has a feeling of privacy. We enjoy the light breakfast they have available, my husband especially likes the "granola" type of bars. You can eat in the office area, take it to your room or enjoy the deck area that is over the parking area looking at trees etc. Its an easy walk to the beach (included in your stay), the South Lake Tahoe shops, as well as restaurants. We look forward to staying there again, as soon as we can.

Room Tip: Its a two story hotel, outside entrance's, no elevator- keep in mind for folks with wheelchairs...

My friends and I have stayed at the Alpenrose Inn twice. The motel is in the perfect location for access to the town. They are friendly, clean, and competitively priced. The room was clean, and well appointed. The amenities, internet connection, etc...were all flawless. They even had organic sundries in the bathroom. That was a nice touch. The breakfast offering is meager, but if you can get by on a light snack, you will be happy. The rest of the motel's charm will have won you over.

This was our first stay at the Alpenrose Inn. We found the reviews on Trip
Advisor helpful in choosing this location. The room was very tastefully decorated, with updated furnishings. The bed was very comfortable and the location of the hotel was perfect. Just a short walk up to casinos and restaurants or down to the beach. Friendly, helpful staff.

The Alpenrose Inn is a little nugget, hidden away among the tall evergreens, but close to everything important...Just a quick walk to the stateline casinos, even quicker to the beach and majesty of the lake! The room had an instant good vibe, with very appealing decor and a comfortable bed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, the internet worked well, the deck was nice to relax on, and the location is wonderful...so you say, what else do you need? The only thing I feel could be improved upon is the breakfast, as it was a bit disappointing, but still enough to get you going in the morning after a late night out. We got the room on a Groupon special and will most certainly stay at the Alpenrose again in the future!

Room Tip: We liked upstairs toward the back of the property

We trusted fellow reviewers and were so pleased with this lovely little inn. Driving up, it looked like a family motel from the sixties and in the best sense it is! The staff is so friendly and helpful, the rooms so large and nicely furnished, and the price so reasonable that it feels as if you've stepped back in time. Even so the flat screen TV, Ipod deck alarm clock, ceiling fan and rare extra of AC in such properties leave no doubt about the commitment to modern comforts. Yes, breakfasts could improve. However, with full coffee makers, fridge and microwave en suite, just pick up a fresh bakery item the night before and enjoy it at your own private dining table or up on the delightful outside deck. The bottom line is this gem is spotless clean, quiet, within walking distance to the main shops at the ski lift, very comfortable and affordable. What more could you ask for in a resort area crammed with cookie-cutter casino hotels and too many family motels that are stuck in time--not surprisingly timeless. We were charmed and will make it our home when in south Tahoe.

Have been coming here for the last 10 years and 2 years ago we missed, then 2013 we came in and found a very beautiful room changed for the better. My wife did not like the colors, but i have no objection. Found the same courtesy and helpfulness, also noticed the change in coffee to a flavorful one, not bad and our room had A/C much to our delight, i have recomended this place to all my friends and they also have nothing but good things to say abour. Keep up the good work Hanna. Look forward to see you in good health next year. Jesus and Suzanne aguilar.

Nothing to really complain about in this hotel : helpful staff, clean and comfortable room, quiet neighborhood. Only breakfast was a little disappointing : no eggs, no fruit juices, rather "artificial" pastries but this downside does not justify a poor rating.
