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.

We enjoyed our stay, despite the fact that they had given away all the king size bed rooms on the lower floor. I have a back injury and can't take our pets up and down stairs. We were given two queens in a nicely appointed room. An hour or so later, the manager knocked, and asked if we would be... More

We stayed in SLT and Gardnerville at their sister property. Both were great service and fabulously decorated. The owners care - and we will recommend it to everyone! Breakfast was great, too!! Merci to Jasen and Anne
