Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 10, 2014

We booked two nights here mid season (9/10 May) and were impressed by the cleanliness and standard of furnishings and decor.
It is at the end of the day a step up from a motel in as much as the room is accessed directly from the outside as opposed to from a indoor corridor.
The bed was huge and very comfortable, the linen was of high quality which is indicative of all the furnishings.
We can forgive the plastic cutlery and plates as the breakfast was continental therefore adequate and not worth stealing!
The staff were extremely friendly and helpfull.
No hesitation in recommending this for anyone stopping over in South Lake Tahoe.

Room Tip: We had room 12 at the end of the balcony, small but quiet at the moment but after 22nd of May there...

My son and I stayed at this lodge for two nights and were made very welcome by the hosts.
Instead of the twin bedded room that we booked, we were offered two separate rooms at no extra cost, most generous of them.
The local information was invaluable, and made our short stay even more enjoyable. The recommendation about dining at the Edgewood Golf Course was a real coup.
The whole place was 'squeaky clean' and I would happily stay there again.
AH.

Hannah and John are very welcoming and helpful hosts. We were in room 12, which was gorgeous, and the bed was huge and so comfy. The hotel is so close to the main shopping area and heavenly gondola as well as the beach.

Some people moan about the breakfast provided... On the contrary, we thought the breakfast was lovely. They provided very tasty cereal, which I think is their own blend, a filling toasted bagel with cream cheese as well as a selection of fruits and a pastries.

If we were to ever to stay in Lake Tahoe again we would definitely stay here.

The Alpenrose is within walking distance from the Heavenly Gondola, so you don't have to worry about driving and parking to go to Heavenly or the nearby shops. The inn keeper is a lovely and super friendly Swiss German lady who did everything she could to make our stay pleasant.

The rooms were simple and clean, bathroom was properly stocked with shampoo/soap (not all motels are), linen were above average and internet worked.
There is a simple, but adequate breakfast (cereal, milk, coffee, fruit, above average pastries).
End price is on par with many motels that were inferior in amenities, cleanliness, or location. The owner's kindness and welcoming were a very nice bonus on top.

This was my third time there, and plan on going back each time I'm in South Lake Tahoe.

Very nice small inn in a perfect location, a quiet neighborhood well off the main road, but an easy walk to the lake, casinos and Heavenly Village lift. Originally a motel, but has been renovated and redecorated to be more of a bed and breakfast inn with unique, thoughtfully equipped rooms.
We were in the English Garden room and appreciated the extra space of the table and wetbar area, complete with basic dishes and utensils. The gas stove was a nice touch and did a good job of heating the room.
The included breakfast was not elaborate, but was enough to start the day. The homemade oat cakes/bars were especially good. One warning to particular coffee drinkers (like me), the coffee served at breakfast was fresh brewed, but was some sort of flavored type (like french vanilla, maybe?) and was not what I would prefer. However, with the coffee maker provided in the room this wasn't a real problem. There is now a nice area to eat breakfast with the completion of the new "winter garden" room just off the reception.

Small property - just few rooms in motel setup. Close to Lake Tahoe shore, but not that close to the lifts.
Nice, friendly welcome. Breakfast room non-existent and the breakfast is limited to just coffee and cookie.
Rooms well maintained, but with low ceiling and paper-thin walls.
Despite description, there was no fireplace in our "premium" room. So not worth paying for.
Instead we had very noisy and air-drying heater fan.
At this time of the year it was not expensive, but will rather select another place next time...

This hotel is just great, its an owner operated place and they and the staff are just great. Everything is clean and the rooms are in great shape. We stayed in a king room and bring our dog to the trip. The prices are low for what you get (it includes breakfast). I will recommend the place to everyone.
