My friend and I stayed here on 3/25/17-3/26/17 and we had such an amazing time at Alder Inn! The Alder Inn is perfect for families and individuals that want to spend the weekend shredding the 'nar' at Heavenly Mountain Resort or spending a nice summer day on Lake Tahoe! The inn is minutes from the Lake and a stone's throw...

The Alder Inn is the best set up in South Lake Tahoe. Centrally located to Heavenly and State line with a bus pick up right next door. Walkable to awesome restaurants on Ski Run- some of the best in the area. Excellent hot tub, comfortable, clean and stocked rooms and super friendly owners. We've logged many night here the last...

Rooms were nicely updated, comfortable and cozy. The hot tub was much appreciated after a long day of skiing. The lifts are close to the Alder. The ski rental shop is just across the street. We were able to walk to several restaurants. One in particular had outside seating with a beautiful view of the lake. I can't remember the...

Recently after a big winter storm the roads heading home to Christmas Valley were backed up for hours. So my pregnant wife, 8yr old son, and mom decided to stay at the Alder Inn for a night. The rooms were stylishly updated with super comfortable beds. Being a Tahoe local, I will have no hesitation to refer my friends, family,...

Every space of the Inn had great attention to detail! No detail was left undone! Central location to town but was quiet and felt out of the way! The Inn-keepers and their staff were so hospitable and helpful! I will definitely stay in the future!

We had a wonderful stay at Alder Inn over President's Day weekend. Comfy room, warm and toasty hot tub and super friendly owners. We will likely come back for another visit and definitely recommend staying here!!

The rooms are quiet and well appointed with coffee makers, microwaves and mini fridge. Very clean. It is a easy walk to restaurants and the free bus from Heavenly will stop at the inn if you let them know you are staying there. The owners are on site and super helpful and work hard to make sure your stay is...

The rooms were spacious, well-appointed and had everything we needed - microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker. Loved being able to walk to the lake and the restaurants. Free shuttle to Cal Lodge and Gondola bases. We did not have a car and it was all good. The hot tub was great after a long day on the slopes. The...

We stayed there for a long weekend recently. Besides being clean and updated (for a motel), the owners The Wharry's, who live on the property, were great folks. This is a motel 5 minutes from the California Lodge at Heavenly Ski Resort. It is walking distance to a number of good restaurants and less than 10 minutes on foot from...

The inn is well located and I found it very nice. The room is well equipped and very well prepared. The receptionist was wery nice and provide all necessary information. I suggest Alder Inn either for a short stay as well as for a long one.
