Just of the main drag but within easy walking distance of the town and lake, Alder Inn was an excellent place to stay. Although once a small motel, the current owners have made each room individual and comfortable.
There was some noise and being a former motel, there was a lack of privacy in some of the rooms.
It was a very quaint hotel. Nice and quiet, centrally located. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Friendly helpful staff Location
Cramped dark room
Shower could use some improvement. Taps for water did not work very well.
The facility is decorated like a room in your own home with original paintings on the wall and other accessories that you don't normally find in chain lodgings.
Although most of the facility has been renovated, the bed needed to replaced. The soft edges made you feel like you were going to fall off the bed. My wife and I slept soundly the one night we were there, but the bed definitely lowered the overall rating.
Even though it was not far from casinos it still felt like a trip to beautiful nature. Appreciated being able to play ping pong there and the location. Very comfy bed.
The outside looks a little drab, but if it was updated I would assume it would cost more so who cares, the inside was great!
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms very spacious and clean, fantastic location in south Lake Tahoe close to the water, restaurants and shops. Free bikes were provided to explore the area and a coffee machine in the rooms.
Nothing really, however it would be great if a kettle could be provided in the rooms and tea bags. But a great hotel regardless.
This is a wonderful collection of rooms around a courtyard with a pool. Restaurants, bars and shops within 15 mins walk. Pool is fine. For Lake Tahoe this is the place!
The rooms in the Alder were very comfortable, loved the outdoor space, great to see people making use of the BBQ.
It was a little to far to walk to the centre of activities but it wasn't a problem!
Very homey and cute place with special touches. Would definitely stay here again. Loved it!
The staff was friendly and quick to meet any requests we had. Our room was very homey, and the bed was more comfortable than our bed at home! We love the simple, cosy decor...and the fact we could park so close to our room. We were surprised to find such nice accommodations, at such a reasonable rate, so close to downtown.
Nice rooms. pool. Free bikes to use. On weekends a nice breakfast of pastries bagels and fruit.
wi-fi was slow. Street traffic was a little loud.
Love the decorated rooms and the always quiet. Hot tub and pool are always clean too.
No Ac but there are fans in the room. Not often is ac needed in Tahoe but of course summer nights can be hot.
I liked everything my stay was wonderful, I can't wait to back!!
Nothing everything was perfect:)
We thought the Inn was adorable -- the room decor was artsy and unique. Lots of little extras, like a Keurig in the room, a welcome note, and super-clean. We slept especially well on the soft bed. Location was perfect and we did check out two bikes for riding around the area. Great little inn.
Great price and good quality! Nice rooms with cute decor :)
Lacked a few needed items such as stirring sticks or spoons for the coffee. Air conditioner wasn't working well.
Very nicely decorated rooms, so cozy and comfortable. The staff was very helpful when i checked in and offered suggestions of restaurants in area. We walked to beach and had a great time; Fun brewery nearby. This is the only place I'll stay in when in So. Lake Tahoe. So much nicer than casino hotels, with close proximity to everything. I sound like a frequent reviewer.... but honestly I'm not, Alder Inn just made a great impression :)
Rooms could have been just a tad larger, but were renovated so cute and comfortable, it was fine.
Loved everything about the Alder Inn- the decor very unique and the little extras made the difference! Good location also
Very clean and new. Bed was comfortable. Close to everything and easy walk to beach. Comparably inexpensive. Friendly staff.
Bad wi-fi connection, had to sit on balcony to receive signal. No A/C.
Many times I have been disappointed with the reviews of mid-price units, but Alder Inn exceeded my expectations...nice area, good parking, very central location, clean and pleasant!
Great location. Comfortable room with a little character. Not like a chain motel room with all rooms the same.
lovely decoration and confortable bed. Quiet place.
we did not meet any of the staff (checked in late and checked out early).
Comfortable bed, good location
The grounds were not clean, regular maintenance not kept up, a "worn" look, breakfast not out at appointed time, check in manager most unfriendly, bikes left out in the rain as well as lawn furniture, pool dirty and cloudy, not a good value for the money.
The great location, the décor of the room felt like a master bedroom.
No dresser to put clothes in, no phone in room. Staff not there 24/7.
Very clean with great style, cozy and comfortable.
