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...

Very personable staff! I was walked to my room by the front desk guy, the owner? Room was comfortable and welcoming, we had the Zen room. Nice bed, very clean, fluffy towels, nice toiletries. We were very happy with our stay. It felt almost like a b &b. the Keurig was a nice touch, but no decaf! That's the only...

The Alder Inn is relaxing, comfortable, quiet, and in an excellent location. Our experience here was most enjoyable. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Each room has been decorated with its own individually unique décor. Ours was the zebra room. It had just the right amount of zebra-striped amenities without being overdone. The Inn also goes the extra mile...

Loved this comfortable place. Felt like home, with wonderful and helpful staff and very nice location. Off the main road just enough that it was quiet and yet still the lake was within walking distance. The staff gave me maps to the places I wanted to go to and helpful tips on places to eat and where to park for...

It is in a very convenient location and the rooms were delightful. Could not ask for more assistance. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants and is only minutes from town.

We received a warm welcome on arrival by the owner and were presented with a clean and comfortable room. The Alder Inn is in an excellent location, close to Lake Tahoe, the main strip and a convenient parade of restaurants and shops. The stay was extremely enjoyable and comes highly recommended.

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the Alder Inn and everything lived up to our expectations. The room was as shown in the photos, everything was very clean and well maintained. When I was having trouble with the wifi not working they actually moved or installed an additional access point. I wish the rain would have allowed us to take...

Our stay was excellent from the moment we drove in the parking lot, where we were warmly welcomed and check in was very easy. The location is perfect for exploring Lake Tahoe in the spring, and right at the foot of the ski slopes for the winter season. There are restaurants within walking distance, and the steaming hot tub and...

We enjoyed our stay very much and experienced the best service. We especially liked how personally the rooms were furnished and kept absolutely clean. The best surprise was certainly that we could use the free beach cruiser bikes which were just perfect for our afternoon at Lake Tahoe. Thanks a lot and we plan to come back :-)
