Lovely stay!
My husband and I stayed here the weekend of our elopement in September and it really was perfect. The room was so lovely. Super comfy bed with really neat decor. The hotel had really wonderful amenities, too. We loved the option of having bikes to see the town. The owners are also really lovely people. They were very helpful with any questions we had, and so kind! We definitely will stay here again when we come back.

Overall Ok for the price.
Overall it was ok. At first glance the room is actually pretty nice, updated. But upon a closer look, the futon couch had a spring missing so we would sink in and the hear stopped working so we would be cold in the morning. Thankfully management was. Why friendly and responsive when we called the issue in and offered to place us in a different room. Would have preferred a discount or something else though in the future since we had already unpacked all of our belongings, baby stuff, etc.

Loved this renovated little spot
We were only here for one night, but I really liked this hotel. We went to Tahoe over Christmas, and stayed at a cheaper place in Tahoe City the previous two nights. Alder Inn was a vast improvement over that! The bed was super comfortable and I nearly died when I saw how many extra blankets we had (three. there were three extra blankets!). My partner sleeps cold and I like to be warm, so this room was a great compromise for us. There was also a ceiling fan and a box fan in the room. I don't love Keurigs because they're terrible for the environment, but after two days of terrible hotel coffee, having one of those in the room was such a nice reprieve. Everything was clean and comfortable and (as other reviews have said) the details were thought through to ensure you had a comfortable stay. That plus five minutes to Heavenly Resort - not sure it could be beat. If we're back in this area, I will definitely be back to the Alder Inn.

Great location
Laura was very accommodating during our stay. She made sure that we have the information we need on our stay. She upgraded our room to a Deluxe King bed. The room has cute details all over and spacious as well. This is also near to a lot of places and restaurants as well as the Heavenly Gondola. Great experience.

Greeted warmly by owners. Offered to change our assigned room to a room with easier access to accommodate my walking difficulties. Very quiet. Although the hotel is an older building, it has recently been refurbished. Our room was very comfortable..and best of all....quiet!
