We (a couple) recently stayed for two nights and enjoyed the lodge as a very nice place. We had a room with two queen beds, a fireplace, a fridge and a microwave (which we did not use). This place is very conveniently located just two blocks from the Heavenly gondola and we had a great skiing vacation just walking over, without starting the car. Staff was very friendly and responding to our questions, especially Danielle. We had stayed before in a different lodge nearby (I will not write the name), but the Avalon Lodge is certainly the better place and value.
If I have to think of a negative point then it would be the small number of available power outlets. Nowadays you want to charge two cell phones, a tablet, your camera batteries etc. over night. But this was really a small issue compared to the coziness of sitting at the fireplace.
