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

First of all we got into the Avalon Lodge at 10:15 pm April 4. When we got there things are fine and the owner of the place seemed pleasant to us. We asked if she has some towels because one of our dogs threw up. We gambled a little bit and came to the hotel probably 2:00 am. Then the... More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. It seems as if there were several issues which impacted your visit. You mention that someone booked the room for you. It sounds as if they did not properly communicate the information they were given at the time of booking. We do offer a healthy continental breakfast which includes fruit... More

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
