This hotel was great!!!! The customer service was one of the best I've had in a long time!!! They always had smiles on their faces and were very helpful. Since they allowed pets wasn't sure how the rooms would be but very clean you couln't tell pets even were in the hotel. We brought our dog and it turned out... More

Loved their effort to conserve waist. Provided real drinking glasses for the lobby beverages; iced water, sangria, coffee and tea. Was able to pick up a non plastic water container to fit a vehicle cup holder -- cool! Nice renovation and currently installing new room fans. Ask for upstairs room to avoid the balcony noise. Parking is tight. Access to... More

I'd give the Avalon a 2.5 if I could. We found the Avalon through a 3rd-party "luxury" travel site. We got a decent, pre-paid deal on the room rates, but had we paid full price, I think I'd give it a 2 because it wouldn't be worth it for the $$. Pros and Cons listed below. Executive Summary: "Nice," but... More

Avalon Lodge is great! To start, the staff is friendly and helpful. Also, it's been recently renovated and the rooms are clean and comfy, with modern fixtures and cozy beds. This place is super convenient and close to everything, and on top of it, they're dog friendly - I'm looking forward to bringing my pup next time I come visit!... More

My wife and I planned a getaway to the Avalon Lodge last year and could not have been more pleased. The lodge is set in a picturesque part of the Lake Tahoe area and you simply can't look anywhere without wanting to take a picture. The rooms were great - very comfy and well kept. But even better was the... More

For $109 plus taxes a night, and dog friendly, this place is excellent. Nice, crisp, high thread count white sheets, with the blanket wrapped in a sheet as well, so you KNOW it's clean, hooks to hang your ski gear, small table and two chairs, nice smelling soap and other amenities as well as a full size hair dryer in...

My husband and I bought a Groupon for a 4 night deal for our 20 year anniversary. We flew from Florida and have never been to this side of the country. When we arrived here Lake Tahoe had a major storm and we pulled in the parking area and were stuck immediately in the snow. Being Floridians we don't know... More

We stayed in late Feb. 2012 and enjoyed this place very much. Very helpful staff, brand new rooms, extremely comfortable beds in a very convenient location. The Heavenly lift is two blocks in one direction and the beach is two blocks the other way. Breakfast was simple but enough unless your the eggs and bacon type. Only drawbacks were the... More

We stayed in Avalon Lodge for 1 week in Feb 2012. We were very happy with the location and all the staff. The endless supply of fluffy white towels, and the gorgeous king bed with fireplace. Great value, great location, great holiday. thanks to all involved, special mention to Dan and Jenna. They were delightful. thanks again
