Could not be any happier with my stay here. The room was very cozy and very affordable. Our room was decorated as if it were a master bedroom in a house. All of the amenities you could want as well. The hotel has a pool, hot tub and free bikes for all customers to use! It actually rained one of...

Stayed at the Alder Inn in January for two weeks. Considered many of the options in South Tahoe but were swayed by all the positive reviews and competitive pricing of the Alder Inn. Prior to our arrival, e-mail communication with the staff was efficient and made check-in out of hours straightforward. The room was cleaned daily and the towels replaced....

I really enjoyed my stay here. Chris was really helpful & friendly, making us feel at home straight away. The room we stayed in was exactly what we needed & had no more or less than places costing twice the price. There was a lovely community feel in the hotel amongst guests, almost hostel like, but with no intrusion on...

Alder Inn is a total gem and Chris made us feel so welcome. It was clear that he takes pride and joy in looking after his guests.The room was decorated with so many personal touches such as a good coffee machine, flowers, a small basket with toothapaste, headache pills etc, chocolates - you really did feel at home here !...

My son and I spent one night at the Alder Inn on our way home from a motorcycle school in Folsom, CA. I should note that my son's name is Alder so my decision to stay here was not entirely unbiased! However, we were both very happy with the property in general and our room in particular. The location is...

We were attending a wedding, and we needed a place close to the ceremony, because we had to bring the kids & sitter. The price per night, was slightly higher than I normally pay, but again it needed to serve, a specific purpose. The check in time is very specific (3-6p.m.) I called at 6:18, and they told me where...

Wonderful...cozy place. Everything was in place for our stay. There was nothing missing. Keurig coffee, free bikes, great location and warm hospitality made our stay 5 star. By the way, the free WiFi worked flawlessly. Will definitely recommend.

Chris was great and showed us to our room, the Zebra Room, as soon as we got there. The place is in a great location with some fantastic restaurants and shops within walking distance. We spent two days and walked every where. Great pool and spa and well worth the price, which was very reasonable for this nice place.
