Okay, I will join the chorus and sing along with another rave review. This place was just perfect for us. The staff, all of them, were great. We loved the free bikes..took a short ride to prove how out of shape we are. The location is perfect, a block off the noisy main drag but still close to the best...

Very nice little hotel with a lot of nice touches. Plenty of extra coffee in the lobby, instant oatmeal if you need. Friendly staff that will go out of their way to help. Free bikes from the hotel. It's a pretty easy walk to the casinos, shopping, and the gondola. I'd really recommend this place.

The staff at Alder Inn are super friendly and helpful. I like that they were able to accommodate our very late check in. The room was clean and the Keurig coffee maker was a bonus. The hot chocolate, oatmeal, and granola bars at the office were just what we needed to get our day started or grab a snack in...

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)

athemed rooms are tastflly decorated, very comfortable bed, microwane and small refer were nice. Attention to details like ceramic coffee mugs, lots of coffee and tea, snacks in the lobby, we really appreciated that.

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.
