This hotel advertises itself as a boutique establishment. This is misleading and raises your expectations. The Avalon Lodge is a 1-2 star budget motel that charges $200/night in July. There is no airconditioning in the rooms and they heat up like an oven during the summer. At night everyone leaves all of their windows and doors propped wide open to... More

The Avalon Lodge is a lovely hotel that is close to the casinos, Lakeside Beach in South Lake Tahoe and close to the shops and restaurants at Heavenly Village. We chose it because it is near Harvey's Outdoor arena where we saw Imagine Dragons. The room was comfortable and had and updated and modern feel. It had a lovely fireplace... More

Currently sitting in room 17 as I type this. We booked a room at this hotel for 4th of July weekend. From the website it comes across as a boutique hotel, under new ownership with massive renovations. You would expect a level of quality from this place because of it, but it falls short of so much including dishonest communication... More

Dear doclovesorganix, Well, this is quite a review. I am sorry to hear you were not happy during such a fun holiday weekend. Also, it was a very busy time frame in Tahoe and our staff’s observation was that you were unhappy from the time of your arrival. With your knowledge of the industry, I am sure you understand that...

My husband and I stayed at the Avalon Lodge in June last year and had a great experience, so we decided to stay again this year. However, this time our experience was not as great. I'm not sure if there's been a change in ownership and/or management. On the positive side, the beds are very comfy and the location is... More

Yes, we do have great beds and an awesome location! Thank you for your feedback. We always listen and I assure you it helps us improve in areas we may not be aware of. It seems our housekeeping staff (in training during your stay) was not up to speed yet. I, along with the Lodge Manager, personally ensure our team... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and the hotel was actually one of our highlights! The staff gave us the best customer service either of us have ever received. They went above and beyond to meeting all of our needs. We weren't able to get a rental car, and the manager (Rhonda) just handed us her car... More

The room was really nice. Walking distance to the casino and the beach. Front desk was very friendly. Very quiet and relaxing. Even offered bike to ride. Very nice get away for the weekend. A box of chocolates on the bed, You could even have a glass of sherry.

Fabulous staff - who really cares. Perfect healthy breakfast and the room was well designed. We brought our dog, could walk everywhere and they didn't charge for bike use, Wi-Fi and I see they have Kayaks, too, although we did not use them this trip. We WILL be back!

This was my first time to Lake Tahoe, and we loved staying at The Avalon Lodge! It looks like a traditional ski lodge hotel from the outside, and the rooms were much nicer than we expected on the inside. I wasn't sure what to expect, knowing that this is a pet-friendly lodge, but the rooms were very clean and what... More

There were quite a few hotels to choose from in South Lake Tahoe, and ultimately we picked the Avalon Lodge because I liked the amenities. I am so happy with my choice!! The location is great, within walking distance of the casinos, of Heavenly Mountain, and the village (for eating and shopping). Also the lake is just a short stroll... More

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...
