The Hotel hosts could not have been more accommodating. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The vibe is very casual and friendly. Did I mention the hosts were accommodating? We won't hesitate to return!

We stayed at Alder Inn for 2 nights before we moved into the house that our nephew had rented for us. It was very cozy and comfortable. It was nice that it was not one of the national chains. It felt very personal. We truly enjoyed our stay there.

Most attractive interior of any motel. Very friendly host, close to the marina for good food. At 5:30 AM we watched a bear amble by our 2nd floor room, a special treat! Easy access from the highway and a quiet location. Reasonably priced and an unexpected prize. Would stop here anytime I was nearby.

Just the cutest place. Rooms are gorgeous. First time I have ever stayed in a hotel with no AC but really not needed at all. Very cool nights and comfortable days. So inexpensive but does not look it. The rooms are decorated beautifully. Everyone was so nice. Hot Tub was great. Everything clean and comfy. Would so go back again....

Upon our arrival, late arrival mind you, we were greeted by the friendly inn keeper at around 9 pm. What a way to start our trip! What I loved about the hotel was its convenience to Lake Tahoe Blvd. and their quaint rooms! The professional photos are legit! No tricks, weird angles and such. They are straight forward with how...

Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were very helpful, gave me lots of good advice. Well situated, just a short walk from the beach and all the restaurants. The free bikes were a great addition too. We were given a larger room then we had booked which was nice. Very relaxing hotel with a nice pool and jacuzzi.

We traveled to South lake Tahoe after july 4th weekend. Since we had traveled via Yosemite and thanks to a hail storm reached at 8:10 pm. The staff was very thoughtful and had our keys ready in an envelope in a box outside the office (office was closed by then). The rooms were warm and cosy. The rooms and bathroom...

We spent 4th of July weekend here and we love this place! It's an older property that has been thoughtfully refreshed. It is clean (which was a happy surprise, you almost expect a couple of gross out things when you know you're staying in an older property), cute, themed furnishings, a mini fridge, micro and even a couple of chocolates...

Some of our friends were staying at Zephyr Cove RV Park and we wanted to be close. Of course there are so many options in the area, we started out a bit overwhelmed. After reading other testimonials though, we decided on the Alder Inn, and hit the jackpot in our opinion! The hosts were phenomenal. Incredibly helpful, & friendly ~...
