It was very cozy and peaceful place to stay. Good location and wonderful staffs! We also had bbq there, it was also very convenience. The room was little small but it wasn't matter. Just one thing I was concerened is the heater. That was warm enough but it stands on the wall just next to the bed. So I worried...

We stayed for one night in October. While the hotel is older, it is in a wooded setting and the room was cute and well decorated and had little extra touches that showed pride of ownership. Check in was easy and the managers were very friendly. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for five nights in late August and had a wonderful vacation! I've recommended this place to a couple friends and my sister-in-law so decided to leave a review to describe why I found the experience so special. Alder had just the right vibe we hoped for in Tahoe. My husband and I wanted a low-key getaway to...

We chose this place for a weekend getaway because it was really cheap and the location was great. The place is older and some effort has been made to update it a bit but it is definitely dated. On the positive side, as I mentioned the location is great. There was also a large upstairs patio area where you could...

The Alder Inn was an excellent choice for our friends and family to stay at for a recent family wedding. The staff communicated with us frequently to block out enough rooms and let us know when a vacancy came up so we could include more of our party . The Inn is charming, clean,well kept, and super convenient...within walk to...

The rooms are clean, free parking, free wifi and comfy beds. The issue we had was with the toilets that didn't flush well. First flag should have been how low the water was in the toilet. Well if you're pretty regular then you'll be flushing 4 times for each BM. Might sound petty, but it gets annoying after about the...

We recently stayed at the Alder Inn for four nights. Everything went great upon arrival. The owner shared his recommendations for dining and sightseeing. The location of the Inn is great. It's a block or two off of Lake Tahoe Blvd, US 50, which is close enough to be accessible to everything while being a little quieter. The room was...
