My husband and I stayed at the Avalon Lodge in June last year and had a great experience, so we decided to stay again this year. However, this time our experience was not as great. I'm not sure if there's been a change in ownership and/or management. On the positive side, the beds are very comfy and the location is... More

Yes, we do have great beds and an awesome location! Thank you for your feedback. We always listen and I assure you it helps us improve in areas we may not be aware of. It seems our housekeeping staff (in training during your stay) was not up to speed yet. I, along with the Lodge Manager, personally ensure our team... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and the hotel was actually one of our highlights! The staff gave us the best customer service either of us have ever received. They went above and beyond to meeting all of our needs. We weren't able to get a rental car, and the manager (Rhonda) just handed us her car... More

Fabulous staff - who really cares. Perfect healthy breakfast and the room was well designed. We brought our dog, could walk everywhere and they didn't charge for bike use, Wi-Fi and I see they have Kayaks, too, although we did not use them this trip. We WILL be back!

This was my first time to Lake Tahoe, and we loved staying at The Avalon Lodge! It looks like a traditional ski lodge hotel from the outside, and the rooms were much nicer than we expected on the inside. I wasn't sure what to expect, knowing that this is a pet-friendly lodge, but the rooms were very clean and what... More

There were quite a few hotels to choose from in South Lake Tahoe, and ultimately we picked the Avalon Lodge because I liked the amenities. I am so happy with my choice!! The location is great, within walking distance of the casinos, of Heavenly Mountain, and the village (for eating and shopping). Also the lake is just a short stroll... More

The lodge is at convenient location and very dog friendly place. The staff is extremely kind and they would do everything you ask for. Each room has a cozy gas burning fireplace, which is a primary source of heating (temperature controlled by a wall thermostat) - it is very efficient and wirked very well for us. The room was quit...

It is an old hotel but the rooms are renovated. The rooms and bathroom are clean and well maintained. Bed is good size and comfortable. Breakfast was included which was minimal, it in the lobby area. We really enjoyed our stay.

If you are looking for quaint, romantic and wonderful place to stay this is your spot. This was my first trip to Tahoe, and my boyfriend surprised me with the romantic package for our room.

This hotel in So. Lake Tahoe is between the main highway and a lovely beach park. It is not a new structure but we were impressed with our well renovated room that had no unpleasant odors, was good sized, clean and comfortable.
