Very good 8.0
Cozy Inn at a Great Location in South Lake Tahoe
The room was very very clean, and we liked the shower/bath amenities. Being that it is an older building, we could hear the guests upstairs moving around. The bed/mattress was fine but an update would make the stay more comfortable. Overall, a good place to stay for a short trip to South Lake Tahoe.

Great place to have for any special occasion!
Our stay was amazing! The amenities were great, the bedding very clean and comfortable. There were outdoor activities such as darts, horseshoes, lawn bowling and pong. The location was ver good as well a short walk to many restaurants and a very short drive to the lake. The room was amazing! It really made our stay that much better. I highly recommend this hotel!

Exceptional 10.0
The Alder Inn is a hidden gem just off the main street in Tahoe yet closet enough to walk anywhere downtown. What a fantastic property! The room was charming and nicely updated/modernized. Outside, they offer nearly every amenity imaginable: ping pong table, basketball court, hammock, bbq with table, pool/spa with nice lounge chairs, even several fire pits with tools to roast s'mores! Property was quiet and very clean - will definitely stay there again!

Check in person was really nice and very descriptive about the area and our room. Comfy cozy little room we had, though the headboard of the king bed was a little shaky but we still slept great. Thanks!
