Chris, the manager, was WONDERFUL! He gave us some great ideas on places to go and was always there to answer questions, fix the tv that I somehow broke, and taught me how to use the coffee maker (lol!). The room was very comfortable, with great amenities, and beautifully decorated. We will be staying here again...that's a promise!

The Alder Inn was a delightful place to stay. It was unique, clean, and well stocked with the little extras. When traveling we like to support the locally owned establishments, and the Alder Inn did not disappoint us. The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to eat and things to do. The location was close to... More

I chose the Safari-themed room for my boyfriend and I to have a nice mid-week getaway (we also attended a friend's wedding). The different design of each room is what drew me to this hotel. It was a tough decision of which room to choose and the online pictures do this hotel no justice. Each room is masterfully crafted and... More

We had a great visit to Tahoe and stayed at the Alder Inn. It was clean, close to shops, restaurants, and the beach. They had complimentary bicycles to ride. Very nice staff. Pool stays open late. Would come back.

Pleasant weekend with the family. Great location, pleasant staff and homey feel to the inn. Nothing fancy but just what you need. The ping pong table is a nice touch. Many sitting areas around the property draws you outdoors. Good idea.

I read a lot of great reviews for this place and decided to book a room here for our weekend getaway. We usually try and stay closer to the casinos and Lakeside Beach. However, the positive reviews and price convinced me I should give Alder Inn a chance. The front desk person (I wish I got his name) was very... More

My friend and I were travelling to Lake Tahoe, and were looking for a place to stay that was clean and close to Heavenly Valley. The pictures on Tripadvisor were EXACTLY how the inn looked in person! It was charming to see people barbeque the fish they caught, and the meat they purchased. There was a very clean and well... More

We stayed two nights in unit 20. Cabin décor was perfect for a Tahoe feel. Chris the property manager always seemed to be available and helpful. The hotel has everything needed for a fun time. Free bike use and they even have a large gas barbeque on site which was perfect for cooking steaks one night. Can’t wait to come... More
