Very Clean, and Quiet.
Very Clean, and Quiet. We stayed mid-week for my wife's birthday on Tuesday, Oct 5 2004. Although we can't vouch for the weekends and busy times, this place was very quiet being off the main drag while we were there. The price was right - $49 for a queen room and it was Very Clean. Nice easy walk to the casinos.
Things to do - as this was the off-season, the nearby private beach was open, so we went to the nearby Raley's market and bought picnic stuff and had a nice million dollar view on the lake. Also went to the Taylor Creek Recreation area and enjoyed the Stream Profile room. The Kokanee salmon are in the creek in october.
Believe the reviews -a great place!
My boyfriend and i stayed here for 3 nights. It is a cute little motel type place but very clean and nice. I found it by reading the reviews here on Trip Advisor and having never been to Tahoe I did not know what to expect. The reviews were right on. Johanna, the owner is as sweet and accomodating as she can be. The housekeeping is great - we slept in every day but when we came back our room was clean. The only thing that I would suggest to bring is a flashlight b/c when I was there the power went out for the entire street block (not the hotel's fault) and it was pitch black dark. There wasn't any light - I wished I had a flash light. I would definitely stay there again. You can walk to the casinos and to the ski lift. Great place!
I was happy to read all of the reviews because not all of the properties were as clean as the Alpenrose Inn and the price was great! THank you Johanna for being so nice.
Turned out to be a great place
I actually found out about this place through trip advisor. The reviews were right on and even though it was a small motel type it was very clean,
comfortable and the owner (Hannah) was really
nice and hospitable. We decided to stay in Lake Tahoe sort of last minute and I checked trip advisor
because none of the other hotels would allow less than 2 night min. The nightly rate was affordable for a weekend in August and we had a room with 2 double beds and a kitchette. It had a small but very roomy refrig, sink, table and chairs, coffee maker, toaster and plates, utensils and such. The room was mid size with a little porch with table & chairs outside also. It was quiet, close to casinos and very close to the beach (walking distance).
I would definately stay there again. The only drawback was no swimming pool if your bringing
children along but oh, well.
Like staying with family
Alpenrose Inn was like staying with family. It is owner run and the pride showed in the immaculate rooms and grounds. We started every morning with complimentary hot coffee and a danish and then went off for the day.. The owner, Hannah gave us very good advice on what to see and also helped with directions. At night we would wind down on the patio which had a grill we were welcome to use. We were looking for someplace inexpensive and clean and we found it at Alpenrose. The grounds are in a safe location and only blocks from casinos and a private beach. Because we were staying at Alpenrose we were allowed to visit the beach free! The large casinos only have a pool and are not allowed to go to this private beach. We are going back next year and will stay at Alpenrose again.
Hannah, the owner/manager was wonderful. This inn is within walking distance of Harvey's and Harrahs at Stateline. Across from Station House Inn it beats them hands down on cleanliness and hospitality as well as rates. Small, quaint garden and patio. BBQ available for patrons and service is exemplary! I'd return here over and over. Does not offer a pool, but has private beach passes. Room "C" is perfect for 2-4.
The Alpenrose is a small, 20 room motel located about midway between the lake and Hwy 50. Around this hotel you will find other, older independent hotels. Overall it was an excellent stay as the place was very quiet and the guests were very friendly. I found the owner to be extremelly helpful and the price was very reasonable. Obviously they care about treating the guests right because they want the repeat business. There are several types of rooms available. The one I stayed in had no A/C and could be consired small but they also had bigger rooms with A/C, mini fridge and small kitchen sink. The room itself was not fancy but offered me a firm bed, clean bathroom and cable TV. When I had a request for the maid it was nice that she spoke English. This is a basic hotel so if you are going to be staying in your room all day and require all of the extras then you should stay somewhere else. I would definately stay there again whereas the family that I met going to Tahoe and on the return flight stayed at Ceasars and will not stay there again.
You can walk to the beach or the casinos from this hotel. I would recommend skipping this and walking to the Marriot Grand Residence and taking the Heavenly Gondola for the best view of the lake. Also rent a car and drive to Emerald Bay (about 10 miles). Do it early in the morning to avoid the crowds and bring a camera!! If you can do your driving early in the morning it is much better. At 5:00 the traffic on Hwy 50 is really crowded even on the weekday.
It's a little difficult to choose a motel from thousands of them around South Lake Tahoe, and my wife and I are happy we chose Alpenrose. We found it through AAA guide, and I'd say the ad is very honest. The room we stayed in is kind of small (they do have bigger ones), but everything you need is there, and perfectly functional. The color tone in the room is very pleasant. The room is very clean and in fairly good condition. The owner is very friendly. And the price is cheap. Although the outside looking of this inn is not very attractive, but if you spend most of the time around lake or on the slope like we did, this inn provides right what you need.
Very attractive rooms each with a personal touch and friendly service
The Alpenrose Inn is a very special place with a European touch run by a friendly host. Each room is comfortable and quiet and reflects a lovely personal touch. It is a unique and charming hotel amidst the many chains and casinos of South Lake Tahoe.
Excellent place to stay
The Inn is nestled in with all the other smaller motels/lodges/inns next to the bigger casino/hotels. The room itself was nice, cleaner and nicer than other motel rooms I've stayed at in SLT. The weekend I stayed there (mid July) just happened to be one of the warmest weeks Tahoe had during the summer, upper 80's and the room I stayed in didn't have air conditiong (which 'usually' isnt needed in taheo).
Overall its alot better than most of the other motels in the area and the front desk person happens to be the owner that actually cares about your stay there, not some teenager making minimum wage.
Quiet, Clean, Comfortable Motel
Exceptional 15 day stay at the Alpenrose Inn June 2003. Great location close to Bike paths, Hiking, Gondala, & Casinos. Vista are great even right from the outdoor deck at the motel. Extemely quiet and clean motel. Very secure. Very personable and accomodating owner helped with a great stay. I viewed other motels in the area most of which I would stay away from either due to appearance of being noisy, run down/not nice, or overpriced. This is the place to stay in LT and I will be making a return visit. Owner provided for special requests and made a special effort to make my stay very pleasant and comfortable. JR

Fallon is a town of about 5,000 folks. We're parked in a Casino RV Parking Lot, which suits us just fine. We had a good lunch in the cafe and "invested" a few not-very-hard-earned dollars at the machines. No luck, no foul...

The rest of the evening he is monopolizing the TV to watch basket ball on the one and only TV in the room. That is why I’m here typing in the blog.

We spoke with veteran PCTers and they said that they have never seen this much snow up here this late in the year and that any other summer two mountain passes a day was completely feasible. Unfortunately now it is flat out too dangerous to attempt two. Mountain passes this time of year are notorious for the ...
... because its barely even a town, its that small. However, its no longer an important transportation stop but a reinvented town built for the tourism trade, both in winter and summer. Boutique shops and restaurants that would be common in Abbot Kinney make up the main drag and most of its traffic literally comes from holidayers driving from San Fran to Lake Tahoe.
We had coffee and doughnut at this cute cafe called Wagon Cafe. It was ...
