Great stay

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: everything
Cons: Do not start cleaning the room prior to guests checking out.
Location: Locations good. Bike riding, hiking and good restaurants near by
The staff was extremely helpful and efficient. Used the bikes, pool and spa. All in good condition. The continental breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings was sufficient.

Great spot in Tahoe

Posted Aug 4, 2014
We had a wonderful stay at The Alder Inn. While this hotel is nothing super-fancy, it's clean, low key, friendly, and in a great location. We will definitively return.

Nice, comfortable, close to main activities

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: Good central location is appealing. The hotel is older, redecorated, but they forgot to update the carpet, which is old/worn. The bed was very nice.
Cons: Carpet needs to be replaced. One of the keys did not work at all.
Location: The hotel is a short walk to Lake Tahoe shore and many activities. It is walkable to Stateline casinos, if you want the exercise, perhaps a mile away
We checked in with ease. They have check in hours 3-6 pm, which was not a problem for us, but might have been if we could not arrive during those hours. The office is not staffed 24 hrs/day, but they left phone number to call if after hours needs. We were surprised that there was no telephone in the room. I guess most everyone has their own cell phones these days. However, some of our family in the area did not have good cell phone reception in South Lake Tahoe. We worked it out, but a room phone for local calls or calls between rooms in the hotel/office would have been nice. The pool and spa are very clean and comfortable temperatures. We used both multiple times during our visit.

The staff was excellent! The location was perfect. 5 minute or less walk to the lake and the price was great!! $10 cab ride to the casinos.

Nice hotel with good location to everthing.

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: The theme rooms are a nice touch and hotel staff very nice. Also was quiet and very relaxing.
Cons: Well the shower in our room did not have any presure and it was quite hard to adjust water temperature.
Location: Location was close to lake and other activities.
We were forunate to get a room at the last minute. Office staff as well as the cleaning staff were all helpful, friendly and made us feel welcomed. We had the western room and it was very charmimg. we only spent one night there but enjoyed every minute of it. Will definitly go back again.

It was a great experience. Clean rooms and even got to rent bikes for FREE. Only issue was parking because of busy July 4th weekend but kind staff allowed us to share their parking stall.

A find

Posted Jun 22, 2014
Pros: Clean and well decorated
Cons: Wifi does not make to the room had to sit outside to get even a 2 bar connection
Sorta retro Motel, nicely finished/decorated in a great location near Tahoe beach...the coffee machine was broken but I doubt that they knew this. Would certainly rate a repeat visit

Amazing

Posted May 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
This was our first time visiting South Lake Tahoe and we had an amazing time. Alder Inn, although at first we were taken back by the outside appearance, the staff, the inside of the room were great! It is located in a prime spot, very close to everything. We will definitely be staying here again!
