3 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Nicely styled, but very small rooms and a tiny bathroom (no tub). The service was pretty poor - the slacker at the front desk had to be asked twice to put towels in our room. The "free" breakfast was a pot of oatmeal and some dried fruit. This is an older wood-framed building with noisy floors and wooden walkways. You... More

The Avalon lodge is a comfy lodge. It is walking distance to heavenly ski and state line. Hence you can ski at heavenly and do some gambling at casinos. The room is decent however the gas heater burns out each night. Otherwise it was a good experience. The room is pet friendly and comes with complimentary breakfast. Another note to... More

Stayed at Avalon Lodge , with a Travelzoo Coupon. It was all they said it would be. You can walk to all the action in South Lake. The staff was amazing. The Sherry in the room was a nice touch. Great bedding, great shower, fridge, microwave, and a French press coffee maker. We will most definitely stay here again.

Lovely little lodge type accommodation, upstairs occupants a little noisy but not unbearable. On the negative side for ground floor rooms there was no balcony or outside area near to the hotel to sit out in during the early evening and we did find the previous occupant's take out meal in the fridge! But on the plus side it was... More

Nice lodge. Nice staff. Good breakfast. 15 minute walk to the casinos. Five minute walk to Lake Tahoe. We walked to the Lake and back. Might be too dark at night to walk. They have a small area in the lobby to go shopping. Dog friendly!

We stayed at Avalon Lodge for 2 nights this summer. It was very quiet, and the staff were super friendly. They were there for whatever we needed, and more (lending books to read, and cutlery/plates for takeaways etc.) One of the staff (John Eldridge) introduced us to disc golf (which we don't really have in the UK) and even cycled...
