South Lake Tahoe and The Alder Inn, California

We are starting to plan our next West Coast Road trip and it has bought back fond memories of our last one in 2012.

Sometimes I think its harder planning your own trip than helping others. It takes me forever to decide on which hotel we should stay in!!! Normally the higher star rating the more guarantee of a splendid hotel.

However this time when deciding on accommodation at Lake Tahoe I trusted the reviews on Tripadvisor as The Alder Inn was rated 1st in South Lake Tahoe. Its actually classed as a Motel and believe me I hesitated for ages before booking but I’m glad I made the decision and followed the reviews. It’s family run and the advice they give us as it was our first visit to the area was outstanding.

We were checked in and shown to our room The Audrey Hepburn Room. I love these colours and felt right at home here. As you can see from the pictures everything is colour co-ordinated even the bathroom matched!!

The Motel is a great location for walking to the Lake, going to nearby Heavenly and seeing the outstanding views from the top of the Mountain after riding the cable car. We even watched an open air concert and saw a paddling boarding competition.

We hired a speedboat to cruise around the Lake and was so impressed we went back and did it again the next day.

You can hire bikes and follow the trail, eat ice cream at the local ice-cream parlour or just relax on the local beach.

We did it all!!!

It’s on our list to visit again on the next road trip. It’s such a peaceful place to stay and we really didn’t want to leave to continue our trip.

I will leave you with some pictures of the breathtaking views.

I think you will agree the pictures speak for themselves.
