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

in the summer, South Lake Tahoe can be hot and stuffy, The rooms do not have AC nor do they have adequate ventilation. We were thinking of staying two days but because of lack of clear / clean / non- polluted / no construction air we had to cut our trip short by a day. The staff was great, but... More

We appreciate you took the time to write a review and are sorry you felt the need to cut your trip short. Lake Tahoe, like most high altitude mountain & lake resorts, typically boasts the perfect mix of warm sunny days and cooler nights. Usually there are only a few days in the summer which are above 80 degrees, but... More

I'm really torn between 3 and 4 stars... We booked this hotel mainly because of the amenities listed (free kayaks available, bikes, pool, breakfast, fire pit, fireplace, etc). Yes, these amenities were technically there, the ones we actually cared about were pretty disappointing.... Let me explain: - "Kayaks" were a joke. They were far too small for adults (children maybe)... More

My 3 person family recently stayed at the Avalon. The location was perfect, you could walk to the lake and to restaurants. Room was very comfortable and the staff super nice. They have an outdoor pool and hot tub.

We enjoyed our stay at the Avalon Lodge. When we arrived we were met by Ann and she made sure we had everything we needed. We told her we were going to make reservations for the Tahoe Queen Boat ride and she said she would make the arrangements for us. It was nice to have that kind of personal service.... More
