Great location on Ski Run Blvd just off the busy Tahoe Blvd. Walking distance to many family owned business and resturants. Best of all just a bike ride down Ski Run Blvd from many of the most popular mountain bike trails with a cozy bath robe waiting for you to enjoy the spacious hot tub and swimming pool. Definitely our...

I recently stayed in Alder Inn with my family and I had a GREAT experience. The location is ideal for a ski trip to Heavenly and it is steps away from other great sights in South Lake Tahoe (1 block from lake). The inn is run by a lovely family who truly valued making my experience memorable. As a frequent...

My husband and I were visiting The area and were very dissatisfied with the time share we were assigned. Got online and found the Alder Inn and spent two nights there. The owner/staff are very friendly and we immediately felt at home. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. Plus beautiful fleece robes are provided for lounging around! Free...

We stayed here last month. There were lots of parking spaces. Good restaurants are just a few minutes drive away. Friendly staff. The room is clean and very cozy. It's just the perfect size for two adults and a baby. Modern interior design. Would definitely go back.

Twelve of us friends stayed at this inn from Friday November 11 through Sunday November 13th. In all honesty this is one of the very best places I have stayed. It had everything you could ask for! We were celebrating our 50th birthdays. It was close to everything but far enough it was very quiet. The rooms were all decorated...

Twelve of us stayed here over the weekend to celebrate our 50th birthdays. We loved our rooms and the friendly service we received made our stay only more enjoyable. It felt like staying in a home....the rooms were decorated unlike the cookie-cutter chains and were full of charm. We spent a lot of time at the fire pit and spa....

We stayed two nights in South Lake Tahoe and the wonderful people at Alder Inn helped make it a great time. Our room was comfortable, the inn well located. The outdoor spa and free bike hire topped it all off.

My girlfriend and I take a few trips up to South Lake Tahoe every year. We always stay at the Alder Inn. The staff is extremely friend, management is super helpful, and the rooms are pretty nice. The inn is located two blocks away from the Lake and it's only a 5 minute drive to downtown. I highly recommend!

I was so happy I booked this place for my weekend getaway. I couldn't have booked a more perfect place. Terry was the greatest. The grounds were well maintained. The room was inviting and cozy; well furnished and beautifully decorated. Indoor and outdoor amenities were great. I definitely will book here again on my next visit to Tahoe and will...
