This was a very cute place. It was a little more on the expensive side for places to stay and the pool/hottub hours are only 10-10, thats my only real complaints. The staff is AMAZING. Sweet, welcoming and accommodating. The room was so well decorated and provided things we needed. The staff was also helpful. The rooms and the grounds...

One of the more expensive motels in Tahoe. It is nicer than others around the South Lake Tahoe area but it's not amazing in the grand scheme of things. Walking distance from the lake and restaurants. Room was clean and spacious but very dark. Refrigerator and microwave supplied but no plates or crockery to accompany it. The pool needed a...

The Inn is located at a walking distance to the lake. We found our room to be very clean and well-maintained. Ms. Ali was very friendly and helpful with information about the city, activities etc. The staff are extremely helpful.

I'd definitely stay in Alder Inn again. Mike at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly, and he had great recommendations for restaurants. I loved that they had bikes that we could easily rent to bike around the area. And the hot tub and pool were great to relax in after a bike ride. The room was nice and...

We had a very quick stay at Alder Inn as we were only stopping in Tahoe for the night before a weekend of backpacking in the Desolation Wilderness. We arrived around 9 p.m. and the front desk area was closed, so we found our key in an envelope with our name on it in a clearly labeled "Late Arrivals" box....

Wonderful reception on arrival. Good coffee machine with mugs. Local to everything and in a beautiful setting near an alder wood. Good value, saw there were free bikes and spa and pool. We found it quiet, small, a gem.

Nice small hotel with well-decorated rooms. Free bikes are great and there is a small pool and spa which are very well-maintained. I liked having the Keurig coffee maker in the room and extra coffee pods were always available in the office. The hotel is a short walk away from the lake; many restaurants within walking distance and the casinos...

After researching hotels on TripAdvisor we came across this gem. We actually showed up before check in time and was able to check in early. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The room was decorated beautifully and clean. The Inn is walking distance to the lake and many great restaurants. We will definitely return to the Alder Inn in...

Location perfect to marina and lake and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The room was quiet and romantic. The queen bed was a little small and we couldn't work out how to switch off the fan - but these are minor issues and overall would definitely recommend to others. All amenities for the lake are just across the...
