Stayed at Avalon Lodge , with a Travelzoo Coupon. It was all they said it would be. You can walk to all the action in South Lake. The staff was amazing. The Sherry in the room was a nice touch. Great bedding, great shower, fridge, microwave, and a French press coffee maker. We will most definitely stay here again.

This is not a review, per Se, as we did not stay at the hotel. We normally stay in the north shore, but thought we would try somewhere different fora change. I bought a two night stay through travel zoo for 149.00 plus tax and booked dec13-15. On 12-12 I had to cancel due to a family event. I called... More

According to the rules you agreed to when you purchased the voucher from Travelzoo, and your circumstances for booking and cancelling, this voucher has been used.

Lovely little lodge type accommodation, upstairs occupants a little noisy but not unbearable. On the negative side for ground floor rooms there was no balcony or outside area near to the hotel to sit out in during the early evening and we did find the previous occupant's take out meal in the fridge! But on the plus side it was... More

Nice lodge. Nice staff. Good breakfast. 15 minute walk to the casinos. Five minute walk to Lake Tahoe. We walked to the Lake and back. Might be too dark at night to walk. They have a small area in the lobby to go shopping. Dog friendly!

We stayed at Avalon Lodge for 2 nights this summer. It was very quiet, and the staff were super friendly. They were there for whatever we needed, and more (lending books to read, and cutlery/plates for takeaways etc.) One of the staff (John Eldridge) introduced us to disc golf (which we don't really have in the UK) and even cycled...

This is a cute spot and we've been pleased with our stays. Its definitely an older hotel, but we've stayed here a few times and had good luck with the staff and rooms.

Don't stay in the end room on the ground (1st) floor, number 19 - the noise from above gave us 3 nights of interrupted sleep.
