I was very happy with the service we received! The employees were happy and helpful. The price was a little steep, but for the location not too bad. The kayaks were a little small so we ended up renting them from a place closer to the lake. All in all I would recommend avalon to my friends and family and... More

First of all, the location is wonderful! It's within walking distance of downtown south Lake Tahoe and the casinos. The rooms give you a rustic-cabin feel yet are still updated, modern and clean. They include robes, beach towels, refrigerators, microwaves, fireplaces, and a complementary "Sherry" drink. Our room had a binder in it filled with great recommendations from the staff... More

The Lodge itself was all you can expect from a property it's size; clean, accommodating staff, updated. The negative, well we requested a room on the upper floors due to tripadvisor reviews but we ended up with the bottom floor. The reason why you want an upper floor-it's noisy on the lower floors. There is no A/C so the front... More

This small older hotel has been redone and has a very nice boutique feel. Rooms are large with comfortable beds. Great location. 5 minute walk to beach or Harrahs casino. We will stay here again when we travel to Tahoe.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Avalon Lodge for our honeymoon. It is very close to the Heavenly Gondola, a private beach (we got free passes from the Avalon desk), and the casinos. We didn't take advantage of the free bicycles, but we will next time. We booked the romance package and the champagne was surprisingly nice although... More

A friend of mine and I stayed for three days and really enjoyed the hotel. I was torn between four and five stars, but gave it five because of two important elements. First, it is a really clean hotel. I place that above all else. Second, it was a really good value. I was making late reservations and all of... More

Had a delightful 4 night stay! Ann & Camille are great hosts! Only thing is - if you cannot offer milk for cereal at no charge, perhaps make small containers available for sale. Otherwise great stay! Two blocks from the Lake, & 2 blocks from casinos & shopping. Very clean & comfortable rooms! Thanks!

The staff at Avalon Lodge (especially Ann! Hi, Ann!) were so great to us from the moment we arrived to check out. We were in town for an SUP race at El Dorado beach, so we had our boards on the Jeep and our dog, Bindi, in tow. They're located near stateline (we easliy walked to the casinos & Heavenly... More
