Alder Inn, South Lake Tahoe
In The Woods
We had a two night stay. The hotel is conveniently located two blocks off of the main highway under a canopy of tall pine trees. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. We rode two of their bikes along the lake front and enjoyed the ping pong, horse shoes and basketball that they provide. The room was clean, the wifi worked well and the surrounding area was quiet. Only thing was that there is no AC in the rooms but they do provide a ceiling and floor fan.

Great location and with in walking distance to lake, restaurants and stores. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. There was plenty to do on site of the Inn.

Not the best hotel stay
Outdated motel; no A/C. We were provided a box fan, but it just blew around the heat. There was so much dust on the furniture, we could write our names on it. The decor was nice, but the bones of the facility needed updating. The pillows were so flat an uncomfortable that neither of us slept well. We had to come home to take a nap to recuperate. The TV did not work well, and the picture was too large for the screen. We had difficulty reading words on the screen as half were cut off, and out of view. We were in room 13, upstairs. They did have a Keurig coffee maker, which was an added bonus. The front desk gals were pleasant.

The Alder Inn was comfortable for a single night ski trip. The fold out couch helped.

Defintely recommend, will return!
Stayed here for two days in January, and I would definitely recommend...first, I was not aware that the check-in office closes at 8PM...the gal at the desk actually called me (we were driving) to check on me, and actually waited a short period of time for me to get there--I felt that was great customer service! Room was clean and comfortable, staff members were all friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
