The staff was very friendly, the amenities were good. Was very close to the lake and all relevant spots were at a walking distance (this saved a lot of driving time) We got good recommendations on things to see, places to eat and the best time to visit places (with do's & don'ts)

My wife an I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you. The location of the Inn was centrally located for the events we had planned. It was quiet at night and was able to sleep with the window open. The décor of each room was unique and different.

The rooms are themed, but nicely done, not gaudy. The owners are very personable and there are bikes to ride down to the lake. Little goodies and Kerig coffee makers in room with little fridge, microwave. They have a hot tub and pool. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Will definitely go back and their prices are really good.

Excellent location, beautiful environnement, very nice room. 1st time in Lake Tahoe, a short stay for outdoor activities, Alder Inn was the perfect place to have good nights and smell the trees. Very good and helpful service.

This was a very cute place. It was a little more on the expensive side for places to stay and the pool/hottub hours are only 10-10, thats my only real complaints. The staff is AMAZING. Sweet, welcoming and accommodating. The room was so well decorated and provided things we needed. The staff was also helpful. The rooms and the grounds...

One of the more expensive motels in Tahoe. It is nicer than others around the South Lake Tahoe area but it's not amazing in the grand scheme of things. Walking distance from the lake and restaurants. Room was clean and spacious but very dark. Refrigerator and microwave supplied but no plates or crockery to accompany it. The pool needed a...

I'd definitely stay in Alder Inn again. Mike at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly, and he had great recommendations for restaurants. I loved that they had bikes that we could easily rent to bike around the area. And the hot tub and pool were great to relax in after a bike ride. The room was nice and...
