My bf and I were going to a show at Montbleu and decided we would have a stay-cation in town. So we decided to stay here because we could walk to and from MB from our hotel and most importantly, it's DOG FRIENDLY! :-) Pleasantly surprised by how clean and modern and welcoming the place was. We were treated like... More

The atmosphere is very home like and it's a great place to stay if you have a pet! I loved the wine part in the evening! Thanks a lot to Ann! She is very friendly and helpful! I think it's a great value for the money you pay. It is so close to the ski resorts and the lake. Will... More

I have tried many of the budget stays in south lake and finally settled at Avalon Lodge. Great friendly staff, updated comfortable rooms with great beds and showers, fireplace and flat screen TV. Walking distance to Heavenly Village, ski, shops and restaurants, coffee shops, grocery store.

Homey feeling but very over priced! Stayed middle of week with pet fee over 200 a night, also billed for additional guest after checkout $12 a day! Breakfast left much to be expected with crockpot oatmeal and plain yogurt, no milk for dry oatmeal. Staff was nice but not overly friendly. Did not replace coffee in room between nights and... More

Everything was great, from the time we arrived to the time we checked out we enjoyed our stay at Avalon Lodge. It was cozy when it got cold, walking distance from Heavenly Village & Casino's and we got to bring our dog along. Thank you Avalon Lodge and we will see again soon.

Big room, double bed with fireplace. The service is friendly and personal. Located were thinks happens, you can walk to the beach, gondola and shops. The price is far with breakfast included. Parking free and a convenience shop in lobby.

We stayed at this lodge for our anniversary and had a wonderful experience. Awesome location - walking distance to gondola, shops, casinos. Awesome price - we weren't looking for anything fancy, so it was perfect for us. Awesome staff - there is a "homie" feeling, like you are staying at a bed and breakfast, such a friendly staff! They had... More

We rented out three rooms from this establishment and had a wonderful stay. The staff was extremely attentive and very accommodating to any additional requests. The location was 2.5 blocks from the gondola. The beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed at Avalon at the end of November with our two Goldens, and it was a great choice. The lodge is walking distance to Heavenly Village's restaurants and shops, and has a nice area behind the hotel for the dogs to run around. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the fireplace does a great job... More

We loved that this hotel was pet friendly! They supplied treats, blanket, towel, and a ball for our dog. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortably filled with plenty of pillows and blankets. We loved that it was in walking distance to Heavenly Village and many eateries.
