"Stay only if you can't find a better accommdation"
The carpet looked like its not been cleaned for ages. Setting shower to hot water didn't work, it would give hot water for sometime and then start giving cold water.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close but no cigar"
Inside the rooms were in great shape and very clean but outside the stairs, walkways and parking lot were in poor repair. Also the pool and hut tub were closed during our stay but were listed as perks when we were looking for a place to stay. The breakfast was disappointing at best. It was in a good location. Quiet street but close to restaurants, bars, […] casinos, movies, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice quiet locale. Got a some exersise by walking to things instead of driving. Would probably stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not worth $127 per night. It is conveniently located to Heavenly Gondola, friendly front desk. However, it is an old building. Cold showers and poor choice on continental breakfast. Feels uncomfortable esp. staying with kids. For the price, they can at least provide a nice hot shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for a getaway!"
This is a good little hotel. The breakfast was OK. The room was great, expect for the shower. I couldn't get a good temperature for the water. I had to switch between hot and cold to get warm water just for a second or so. I loved the fireplace in the room for heat tho.Genuine Expedia guest review
My girlfriend and I had the most amazing stay at this hotel. The staff was so courteous, and the ambiance of the tucked away location was amazing. It was so quiet and quaint, the room had a very warm feel to it and the fireplace in the room just added to the feel. It was walking distance to everywhere and we liked that it wasn't on the main drag and […] didnt feel the stuffiness of the casino. We will definitely be coming back to visit and this will be our first choice to stay. We absolutely love this place. It was such a relaxing and rejuvenating stay.

"To the mountain!"
The people working the counter were very nice and helpful. The hot tub was only open til 10pm but I'm pretty sure they let me and my friends that were staying at another hotel down the road stay in longer than that. There was a wall outlet that didn't work near the door which caused my phone not to charge and be dead the next day so that wasn't cool. […] The beds were very comfy but the comforter on my bed had some small red stain on it. Blood or wine ... not really sure but it wasn't bad so it didn't bother me to much. Bring your own soap and shampoo because the stuff they provide is weak. Overall the place is great and they have free spiced wine in the lobby and in the morning they serve oatmeal and blueberry bread which isn't bad. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
At first the place seemed fine. The front desk could not find our reservation. He got the key and information later, but there seemed a bit of a wait. The room was nice with a small fireplace and a big bed. That was fine. I was going to borrow their bikes the next day but there were dirty and needed to be pulled out of their storage space. That night […] was terrible. There were some people above us that kept moving about 10pm. They were making loud noises. We called to complain and they said they would take care of it. They seemed to quiet down for a few hours. Then they came back and were just as loud. I called again to complain and have us moved to another room. The person I talked to said she didn't hear any complaints but, I just talked to her a few hours ago. We were able to move and get a nights rest. The next day we were given a 5% discount for our next stay. I don't think we will stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for couples retreat"
Location: Walking distance to Stateline shopping, Heavenly Gondola, and Casinos. Far away enough from HWY-50 so don't hear the traffic all night. Comfort: Bed and pillows were comfortable, nice fireplace for relaxation, bathroom was nice and clean, towels weren't rough. Price: Reasonably price for last minute Holiday weekend plans. Parking: Free […] and we even arrived prior to check in and staff allowed us to park here while we did some touring to kill time. I would recommend this place and even stay here again!

Great location, convenient to all the good stuff in SLT... room was really nice, and the fireplace was a nice touch. Only complaint was that the water temperature in the shower was a bit challenging ... hoping maybe it was just bad timing, but hot water ran out within a couple minutes and it was only lukewarm, but overall not bad!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spent 3 nights on ski trip"
Comfortable room. Nice staff. Breakfast a bit oversold. Overall good value at $180/night for 2 queens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we arrived, and the room was very nice and cozy. The kids loved the fireplace in the room and the stone shower. The hotel was close to everything but not on a main road. We had some slightly loud upstairs neighbors but overall a terrific experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a really nice stay- the beds were incredibly comfortable, everything was remodeled nicely and the fireplace was a nice touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel for romantic getaway"
A nicely refurbished motel. The rooms are very cozy and clean, especially the beautiful bathrooms. Nicely situated within walking distance of casinos and the water. Staff is super friendly. It was nice to get a great room for a good price without having to stay in a casino.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great for out of season, otherwise could get expensive. Nicely remodeled rooms with a very friendly staff. Short walk to great food and attractions. Overall very niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"amazing service, beautiful room, close to lake"
I loved this place. The staff was superb. They did everything they could to make us feel welcomed and at home. The room was very cozy and comfortable with all of the modern amenities you could ask for. It was also located close to everything. You can walk to the lake or walk to the 50 and Stateline for all of the restaurants and casinos you want. I […] would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to come back and visit soon. The only downfall was that you could hear people in other rooms at night and in the morning when they were loud. If you're having a busy weekend and just need a place to sleep, it won't affect you.

"Nice place to relax"
Other than having problems with getting hot water in the shower all other things were good. The front desk was very kind to direct us to the nearest sight seeing places, recommended the time to visit them and also matched our intereset to the places. Overall a good place to stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfy bed, stinky shower"
Overall, the stay was pleasant and for the price I have not been to a nicer motel in South Lake. The service was pleasant, complimentary toiletries were high quality, the bed was comfortable, the gas fireplace/heater was a nice touch. That being said, it is an older motel with thin walls. You can hear the neighbors and the people walking above. The […] shower was stinky, like previous patrons smoked in the bathroom and the granite tiles absorbed the smell somehow. Also, a fan in the bathroom did not work. Also, our reservation included a complimentary wine tasting, however, the winery is only open thurs-sat so by the time we checked in saturday evening they were closed for the weekend. :( Less than a ten minute walk from the casinos and lake. We will probably be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice crash pad"
The room was quit spacious and comfortable. The staff was very nice offering a good continental breakfast and complimentary sangria's in the evenings. Fans in the room were a nice touch but central air would be better. Great place to stay for a quick weekend trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was quiet and the staff was friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"South Tahoe in Sept."
Loved this hotel. Very central to everything in south Tahoe. Love the complimentary beach cruiser bikes. Great stay overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
very good breakfast...simple, outmeal, fresh cut strawberries, yougurt, raisins, brown sugar for oatmeal, granola. simple nutritious. close to lake to walk..you get a free pass to the private beach as part of it. nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will be back!"
Location was PERFECT. Hotel had every amenity that you could need on a little getaway. Comfortable room. Only complaint was that walls were thin and you could hear everything. Breakfast was nice, private beach was perfect, location AMAZING, staff were super friendly.... perfect long weekend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet place close to casinos."
The room needed more light. No side lamps by bed. Cute room but just too dark.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable beds"
The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was recently remodeled to a modern, trendy design. I had some reservations pulling up to the hotel since it was next to some apartment buildings, but the quality of service and the quality of the room won me over. The parking lot is pretty tight and the pool was non-operational during our stay, but the […] hot tub was a nice reprieve. The room did not have air conditioning - which may have been if it was a warm night - but it was a cool evening and opening the windows and running the ceiling fan resolved that potential issue.

"Stay @ the Avalon"
Every thing was nice and clean, only thing that could have been nicer was if the rooms had a/c, the weather was nice so no need, if it was any hotter a/c is a must.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love this place"
The staff couldn't be nicer and SOOO accomodating. The room was nicely updated and clean for the most part, but being a big snob about cleanliness, when I saw a couple smudges on the duvet cover, I took notice. But the sheets were clean. The room was very hot due to no A/C, but not the inn's fault that Tahoe happened to be suffering through a heatwave. […] They did provide an oscilating fan and there's a ceiling fan, so they really tried. LOVED having a fridge and microwave in the room! I'll definitely stay here again.

"Quiet, within walking distance to Stateline,NV"
Not as clean as I expected ( "clean bath mat" had brown mark on it..even as I open it up for 1st time). I thought that it had A/C...turned out not ,just ceiling & prattle fan. Rooms really stuffy & hot in afternoons,even on 1st floor. Had to go to bed with windows all way open ( bedroom area) & one in bathroom...finally cooled down within room by early […] AM.Didn't feel comfortable leaving those windows open all night, it someone wanted to get into room, easily could have done so (since we were on ground level & all windows close to floor( to climb in & out of).I won't return here again.

"Love it, but..."
This was our second time staying at Avalon Lodge, the first time was in September of 2011, since it was cold we had no need for and didn't realize this establishment didn't have air conditioning. Luckily for us during our stay the temp outside didn't go over 79 degrees, our room was pretty stuffy but the fan they have in the room was a life saver! Our […] room was on the top floor and the windows over looked the patio down below so there was no access to the windows with out a ladder so we felt safe leaving our windows open while we were away from the room to let the air circulate, if we were in a different room this would of been a huge problem. We will probably return for another stay as long as it is during winter or fall. They are pet friendly with beautiful rooms and clean sheets! Gave cleanliness of the room a 3 cause there was hair on the shower drain and it kinda grossed me out! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice Place"
My wife and I stayed at The Avalon Lodge three nights over the Memorial weekend 2012. This place was very clean. It came with a fireplace, tv,fridge and microwave in the room. It is in a very good location in South Lake Tahoe it was a short walk to everything! i recommend if you are to stay at this Lodge to stay between November and the end of May. […] Only because they do not have A/C in the rooms, so it may get hot! All of the Avalon Lodge rooms have been remodeled , so everything is new! They have a pool and hot tub. Don't expect to eat here at the lodge they don't offer much but all the eateries are in less than a five minute walk from your room. Heavenly gondola is a short three or four minute walk, the beach is a seven minute walk and the casinos are a two to three minute walk. So all in all I give this lodge for price and location a 4 and a half star rating, I would have gave it a 5 star if it had A/C. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel - Our room faced the street and had a nice big window. The heating was done through a fireplace and was great. The bed was super comfy and clean. The bathroom and shower looked to have been recently updated and was very nice. The walls were a bit thin but nothing we couldn't handle and the outside of the hotel looked like it could use a little […] TLC but I would rather they update the inside than outside anyway. They had a pool and hot tub which both looked clean. Staff - Everyone at the front desk was super helpful and friendly. WE had a few special requests that may have been an inconvenience to them but they obliged without any hassle. Location - The hotel was just two blocks off HWY 50 and within walking distance to most of the bars, shopping, casinos, and restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Will never stay anywhere else!"
Everything about it was fabulous. Location was quiet and easy to get to everything. Walking distance to beach, casinos, and resort center. The staff was very friendly, bed and shower were fantastic. Could not have asked for anything more!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I took pics of the bathroom"
I want to remodel my bathrooms to look like theirs - beautiful. My only complaints are there aren't any lamps and the pillows in our room were flat; they weren't in our friends room. Very clean. I'm always scared that the previous reviewers don't have as high standards of cleanliness that I do, but it was very clean. I heard it was remodeled but they […] did such a good job, it looked as if it had always been that way. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place in south lake tahoe!"
Hotel was great, very reasonably priced and the staff was very accommodating. Everything was clean and recently renovated, very close to the city center of south lake tahoe but not right on the street. Can easily walk to Heavenly if you want otherwise quick drives to local slopes. Pros: Great staff Clean comfortable rooms Money well spent, rooms have […] fireplaces Hot tub holds about 6 Cons: minor noise could be heard from the next room, but that was minimal at best, barely a con. Had no impact on my overall experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great place to stay in South Lake Tahoe!"
This is our second time staying at the Avalon Lodge. It has recently been upgraded and the place is very nice. Everything is very clean and modern.

We highly recommend […] Avalon Lodge! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms are very clean, updated and comfortable. The fridge, microwave, and fireplace are a plus. The only concerns we had with this hotel were the noise upstairs and the fact that they called the expired yogurt and crockpot oatmeal "breakfast". We are not a picky family, however, we did not touch the so called breakfast the second day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable beds, good staff."
It was a lovely hotel with friendly helpful staff. They are clear in their room information that it's a work in progress, so there are upgrades in process so the hotel isn't at 100% of what it could be, but even in progress it was a very pleasant experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wouldn't Stay Again"
Felt like a two star motel with some upgrades. Only a few pros, lots of cons: Pros: Staff helpful and friendly, close to shops/skiing, continental breakfast was better than most, free sangria in the lobby, some attempt to upgrade the rooms with nice TV etc.. Cons: Bathroom is tiny, no bath only a shower which is small and dark. No place to put toiletries. […] Room itself had few places to put items or sit down other than bed. It was NOISY as heck. You could hear conversations from other rooms, people walking above you and I was unfortunate to have a dog next to me. It barked for hours on end! The room view is hideous. There are mountains all around and the windows look out into the ugly parking lot. Maid service was AWFUL and we often had to ask for toilet paper/tissues/clean towels/clean glasses. The neighborhood seemed seedy and I was uncomfortable walking around at night. Hot tub had green mold around it. "Fireplace" was the heater and couldn't be turned on independently. Would never go back to this place given all the other lodging options in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Recommand if the room is on the second floor"
I stayed there for two nights. The room was all renovated. Bath room was nice. Mattress was comfort. People at the front desk were friendly. The location was great. Everything was great except three things. 1. Breakfast nook was really small and not tasty. There were ONLY yogurt, a cup of strawberry, cereal, oatmeal, milk, juice, and coffee. We ended […] up going out for breakfast. It would have been better if they provided bagel and bread. 2. We stayed on the first floor. The building itself was old. So, it was quite noisy at night. I recommend this hotel if you can get the room at the second floor. 3. Parking lot was so small. There are only 3 spots for SUV. There are more parking spaces inside of hotel, but they are too small for SUV. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice folks, worn down room"
This hotel is about what you would expect for the price....very nice people, but our room was very run down. They say they are renovating--maybe once they are done, the place will be nicer. But, as-of October 2011, our room was pretty shabby. The carpet was filthy. The mattress on one side of our king bed was so worn-down that I could not sleep on my […] back, because I would slide off of the bed. The only way I could sleep, was by rolling on my side, and using my bottom/back foot to prevent me from rolling off. Very uncomfortable, to say the least. The bath was large enough, but badly under-furnished. No place to set any bath items, other than a tiny shelf over the pedestal sink. Had to lay our bath bags on the floor, or on top of the toilet seat cover. Not very elegant, especially per modern motel standards. But, on the other hand, the desk staff was friendly and nice. The cleaning crew was average--we had to ask for shampoo and toilet paper refills, and clean towels. I've stayed in a lot of other rooms that had better in-room service. Good location, two short blocks from the large Heavenly ski lift, and reasonably quiet at night. You cannot see the lake from the hotel (at least not from the ground floor), but it was only two short blocks down a shallow hill. Lots of road work going on--I guess the CA state highway folks are trying to get the roads ready for winter. Be prepared for 30-45 minute delays driving along the lake, and worse in the mountains.

This hotel seems like an old motel that has been renovated. The room was pretty nice. The bathroom had a pocket door which seemed odd but was ok. I would stay here again if the room rate was a little cheaper.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Refurbishment Still in Progress"
The Avalon is a work in progress. It's an older property (i'd guess from about 1960 or so) that's being refurbished. As an older property it does have a great location: you can walk to Harvey's in about 5 to 10 minutes. Some of the things being upgraded haven't happened yet, but the bathrooms are cool (slate showers and floors, etc.). The staff was […] very accommodating, with one exception. We were going to be arriving late and tried several times to call the hotel to see if that wold be a problem. The phone was never answered or even went to voice mail. When we arrived we found out the hotel had begun running a great special that day and they were so overwhelmed, they weren't even answering the phone. Other than that, they were excellent.
