The Adler is a nice motel close to Lake Tahoe and away from the casinos in Stateline. We stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms were lovely and each one was decorated in a different theme. The bed was very comfortable and the towels were plenty. The Shower robe was very soft and a great plus. The room also had...

Just across the road from the lake . A nice motel with sweet rooms with attention to detail. Free bikes to use and super friendly and helpful staff. No breakfast but plenty of choices without using your car.

We stayed here for 3 nights in September and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The room was nicely decorated and the bed very comfy. Its a minute's walk to the main Boulevard and there are nice places to eat and a couple of decent bars within 5 minutes. We could walk up to the Heavenly area...

We stayed for one night on our way down to Yosemite, we would have liked to stay longer. We received a lovely warm & friendly welcome from Ally, who took us to our room shared lots of helpful ideas of places to see and go. We loved our room (number 24), beautifully decorated, lots of space, and thoughtful personal touches,...

The room was well appointed and easily as nice as the chains but not in the middle of the traffic and noise yet it was close enough to walk to some venues and a quick bite. The Inn and its grounds reminded me of a stay at the edge of Rocky Mountain National Forest in Estes Park Colorado. Overall great...

We were thrilled to be so close to the lakeside at this lovely little motel. The people on the desk were extemely helpful and there is a great little pool and spa. Totally satisfied and loved the area.

Nice location, short walk to the lake, 20 min walk to heavenly village. King bed room ok but small, no chairs, small sofa. Got a not very nice surprise when toilet won't flash. Called manager, got a promise to call plumber. We were also offered a plunger if WE wanted to take care of the problem for now.

We are a company that strives on customer service and doing whatever we can to make sure we make the guest happy. In this case, I truly do believe it was a misunderstanding on our part and for that, we sincerely apologize. When the guest told us that the toilet would not flush, we, of course, we straight over to...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Alder Inn in South Lake Tahoe for a quick one night anniversary trip. We usually stay at the casinos, so this was a nice change for us! Loved how close it is to the beach and the rooms were great! Love the idea of going again and getting a different themed room!...

Nice small place at a very good location for easy access to most area attractions. Room had been recently updated and was nicely furnished and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful on things to do in the area.

Beautifully furnished rooms. Each room has a unique decor. Very friendly staff. They brought us directly to our rooms. Loved the chocolate treats in the rooms! And the ping pong table, the bikes available to borrow for a spin around the neighborhood, the hot tub. A couple of suggestions that would have earned a higher rating: please put a hook...
