“Delightful Place to Stay While Visiting Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

Alder Inn was simply delightful. Just like many before we found Chad and Layni to be so helpful planning excursions. HOT TUB, as our new friends we met from San Francisco said, was "THE BOMM" not sure how you spell it. LOL. Alder Inn fit our budget and was perfect. So many thoughtful "details" as the previous person said were put into each room. Next time we head west we will be back.

Took my girlfriend to Tahoe for the weekend and picked this place because of pictures and reviews and we were not dissapointed. Clean rooms they felt more like a bedroom than a hotel room. Chad and Layni have put alot of thought into rooms and the details show.

Great Hotel Stay. Clean Tahoe Air!

Great Location, staff (Layni) very much on top of the area, identified key points not to miss.

Great Room (bathrobes,coffee mugs, snacks) much needed R&R.

Thank You Alder. A+++

Room Tip: Look at pictures.

The room was spacious and service is friendly. The rooms are clean,have special touches, comfortable beds, large vanity area and no extra add on charges. If you are looking for a great hotel I would certainly recommend this place. Thank You Chad and Layni for a great and memorable stay.

Myself and two kids stayed at the Alder Inn for 8 nights. I booked a twin queen room.
The room was very clean, maybe a bit of a squeeze as we had 3 bags full of ski gear, and not much storage area - however this was not a big issue when you consider it is cheaper than the hotels, better location than the hotels for getting to the slopes and we certaintly were looked after!
The location is only 10 minutes from the Heavenly Ski Resort, and is ideally located for restaurants which are walking distance from the Alder Inn. (allowing beer time!)
Chad and Layni were very helpful regarding where to go, what to expect, and tips about pretty much everything from the resorts to eating out!
Yes, it was a good trip and the owners attention to detail and hospitality adds extra value!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our time here. The room was beautifully decorated. You could tell that there was great attention to detail throughout the room. From the shampoos to the little kit in case you got sick, it was all so great. The owners were very welcoming and offered great advice as to what to see in town as it was our first time in Tahoe. The hotel is in a great location as it is within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. We will definitely be staying here when we come back again.
