Fresh and inviting rooms, family owned and staffed. From check-in to check-out we couldn't have had a better time. We stayed in October so the hot tub was a nice touch each evening in the cold crisp air. The hotel is perfectly located on a street that connects to the ski resort AND the Lake. This place is a Tahoe...

Quick overnight stay passing through Lake Tahoe. Very helpful owner and beautiful & clean rooms. Hot tub on site very relaxing after biking and hiking. Would definitely go back there. Close to the town. Would have loved to have breakfast offered in the hotel.

I called to make a reservation and spoke to Laura. I asked about a cancellation policy and she told me what it was. I explained that I was deciding between Yosemite and Tahoe. My daughter and I really wanted to snowshoe on her spring break. Laura was full of information on snowshoeing, and I was looking forward to meeting her...

The owner was very helpful and friendly, actually meeting me in the parking lot and knew my name. The room was very comfortable and the price was good. The location was close to several nice restaurants. I ski at Tahoe several times a year and plan to return to the Alder Inn.

Stayed at the Adler Inn a couple night early April. Family owned, pleasant to deal with when checking in early. Room was very clean and nicely decorated. Memory fails me, the fella who checked us in, the owner, gave suggestions for restaurants and sight seeing. Located near several eating spots, makes for a easy stroll. We would stay there again...

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,...
