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.

A bottle of champagne, two souvenir champagne glasses a box of chocolate with rose pedals on the bed was waiting for us when we entered... More

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. We had a good stay here and the location was ideal for our needs. It also is a... More

This is a small, quaint 20 room hotel with a delightful staff. The staff are there to help you in anyway they can. The rooms and bedding are well appointed. There is a nice frig and microwave. The wifi is a little erratic. The location is terrific. You are between Heavenly village and Lake Tahoe. Hotel guests have beach access... More

What a fantastic find! After hours of searching South Lake Tahoe properties on the internet, I finally decided upon the Avalon Lodge. Here was my search criteria: be within a 5 minute walk of both a beach and "the strip" (the casinos and restaurants along Lake Tahoe Blvd between Park Ave and the Montbleu Casino-- in my opinion, the epicenter...

I discovered this place last year and it is wonderful. I can walk anywhere I want to go, and if I don't want to walk they let me borrow a bike. My dog is my best friend and is treated as one of the guests everywhere on the property. The staff is friendly and helpful, like a good neighbor. Ann... More

We found The Avalon on BringFido.com. So glad we stayed here. We intended to stay for 3 days and ended up staying almost 2 weeks...with our two cattle dogs. Ann and Camille were tremendous "hosts". They truly provided a pet friendly (and pet OWNER friendly) environment. They made us feel like family. The rooms (we ended up having to move... More

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
