A really great place to stay in South Lake Tahoe. It's close to everything, therefore convenient, but also away from the main drag, and therefore quiet and peaceful at night. The rooms have been beautifully redecorated, each one differently from the next, with its own theme, so as others have suggested, if you are booking ahead, go online and pick the one that most appeals to you. The beds are super comfortable, there is a variety of pillows, so you will find at least one that suits your needs, the bed linens are clean. And they do not skimp on the little extras, providing in addition to the standards things you see in hotels: a good razor, shaving cream, deodorant, organic shampoos and conditioners, tasty coffee (as good as it can be in drip machines), a basket of chocolates and health bars, and a pretty standard-sized air freshener aerosol. Good quality items, no cheapness there ... except for the facial tissues, which were a little rough.
So why four stars instead of five? Not just for the tissues, but also because the rug outside the bathtub looked grimy, I did not want to step on it, the cost is just on the edge of being a little too pricey, and we did not get the best of help from the people who checked us in. Minor quibbles really. I actually completely recommend Alder Inn.
