"Moldy Allergy Nightmare"
Booked this room for a romantic birthday weekend. It was definitely not worth 169.00 (which with tax and resort fees comes up to about 200.00 per night). The room smelled musty / moldy. It was dimly lit with a electric fireplace and ceiling fan. Beds were decent. Pillows were too firm for my liking. We both had neck troubles as a result. Breakfast was oatmeal and strawberry compote (stewed strawberries), banana bread, apple juice, coffee & tea. We had to go request toilet paper because there was no extra roll in the room. Not a horrible place to stay but definitely not even close to being worth the money paid.

"A Great Time"
We were in Tahoe for a wedding. While the hotel is older, it was in great condition. We were impressed with the cleanliness. But, most importantly, the staff was wonderful. They were open and friendly and eager to help in any way. They offered suggestions for dining and day trips, they greeted us with a smile. The coffee IS good! The continental breakfast was typical; oatmeal, juice, breads. There is a nicely functioning hot tub, and a firepit!

"Great hotel in Tahoe"
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Avalon. The room was clean and the gas fireplace was a nice touch. I also liked the breakfast. When trying to book the room I tried to call Avalon and no one answered. I figured it wasn't a big deal and booked anyway. Once we arrived we needed to ask the front seat something and once again couldn't get anyone to answer.

"Pretty lousy place"
I booked a room with 2 queen beds but during checkin I was told there was no availability and that hotels.com didn't give them the correct info. Not sure what that even means. They promised to move me out but nothing happened. There was no continuous running hot water in the shower and this was in December!!!! I overheard the receptionist saying that the plumbing is from the 40s and they are aware of it. The breakfast was also pretty lousy. The only good thing about this place is its location. I wouldn't stay here again.

"The Avalon Lodge is our hotel of choice in Tahoe"
This is a really nice place, the people are nice and helpful, and it's not expensive. We've stayed at lots of places in south lake tahoe and while some look similar to the Avalon Lodge none of them can hold a candle to them. The service alone makes it worth it. They are genuinely nice.

"The overall stay was OK. Room was very comfortable"
The room was very quaint and comfortable. I loved that the heater was a fireplace. I also loved that I was able to board my dog with me. It seemed that this was the place to stay with pets, because everyone staying there had dogs. The hotel is located very close to the main street where all the shops and restaurants are located. Heavenly Gondola is located only a couple minutes away walking distance. I only had two gripes. One was that I was told wifi was included with my stay, but the wifi did not work the entire time I was there (3 days). They tried to help, but in the end told me that it was probably just due to the range not going far enough to my room. Also, the hot water in the shower did not work very well. I guess that just the way it is when it is cold. I loved taking a hot shower when I got home though. Overall, a good stay. I would only stay again if it were the summer and I would probably request a room closer to the router for wifi.

"Not too shabby"
For the price the hotel was alright. It was within walking distance to the gondola and the lake which is nice. They do have oatmeal for breakfast, which was great for us. What was annoying is that since the hotel is pet friendly people bring their dogs, then leave them in the room to bark for hours and when you have a 3 mo old baby trying to sleep that can be a bit much. I would have LOVED a bath tub, but it was a trade off for a fridge I guess.

Situated amongst dozens of similarly sized motels in south lake tahoe, this one is priced a little higher than some other ones, but the bed is very comfortable, the room is clean and nicely decorated, and you get some complimentary goodies (sherry in your room and sangria at the front desk. Breakfast is oatmeal/yoghurt and muffins. It's an old place so you'll hear your neighbors. Just drink more of the sherry.

"Bewildered!!!!!"
When I firs arrived to the lodge it appeared to be true to form with what was presented on the internet. I soon realize zit was false Advertisment. First and foremost, there was nooooo air condition!!!!! Not good for a temperature of 95 degrees . Secondly, the internet was down for four of the seven days I was there. I know it doesn't matter to most, but 1 iron for the whole unit just doesn't cut it for a girl. Although the person in charge (Ann), was pleasent, she just was pleasant enough to make me want to return. Too pricey for not enough amenities !

"Stay away"
I would say this was a nightmare. Firstly, the room had no conditioning and it was terribly hot. It was impossible to sleep at night. Secondly, the room was dark and the carpet was dirty. Thirdly, you can forget about the free breakfast in the morning. It offered nothing more than soggy cranberry bread and oatmeal. I would say typical cheap Days Inn has better breakfast offering. Lastly, the hotel charged extra money for each of my kids. They claim it is to keep the noise down by limiting the number of people in the room. I just don't see the logic behind that.

"Dissappointing"
While there were some positives (friendly helpful staff and good location) I expected much more for the price of the rooms, and I didn't understand why it got such a high rating. There was no air conditioning and our upstairs room was hot. It was hard to open the window and blinds as there were people sitting right outside our room in the little sitting area and we had no privacy. Also bright lights outside the rooms were kept on all night. I would not stay there again.

"Would not recommend"
I was not too thrilled: asked for extra towels, never received. Maid service left us with 5 squares of toilet paper-ran out in middle of the night. (with 2 teenage girls along!) No #'s on phone so couldn't even call the front desk. NO Air conditioning-both nights I just sweat from the heat, even with windows open. Windows did not have any locking mechanisms as we were on street level-didn't feel safe. Says "Breakfast." They offer cranberry bread, vat of oatmeal, plain yogurt in a large bowl and a small bowl of cut up strawberries. Nothing was portable, so you had to eat there. Not convenient when you are running out to make an event. Mid service left the coffee pot dirty and we had a 1" bar of soap for 3 people for 3 days! For what we paid we did not get a good value.

This was an okay hotel for the price but it says free wifi and free breakfast. The wifi was very spotty and kept kicking me off. The free breakfast is not what you normally expect from a hotel. They cook breakfast once and if you aren't awake early enough to get it, you don't get any.

"Get place to take your dogs,Great walking distance"
We made last minute plans and talked to hotels.com about several places to stay at (with 2 dogs). To be honest,we were led to believe that the hotel was better than it was. The people there were very nice and the room was nice. Our problems were the following: We were told that there would be fresh fruit with the breakfast and all it was,was chopped apples to put in the oatmeal. Also it was VERY NOISY at night. We arrived on a Friday night and after 2:00 in the morning people upstairs dragged a chair and kept us awake. Saturday night after 1 or 2 in the morning,people were stomping there feet up and down above us and kept us awake for several hours. I know these folks want to rent the rooms,but maybe remind the renters that there are dogs there and loud noises will disturb the dogs and keep everyone awake. At the prices we paid,I would have expected the hotel in a better area (it seemed somewhat ghetto).

Myself and a friend drove up for the night, along with my teenage daughter, so we could attend a friends wedding the next day at the beach. The lodge is an updated older builing. Very clean and cozy. Love the little woodsy acents and the tile entry in the room and the shower. The gas fireplace to keep the room warm works great and the beds were clean and comfy. Staff was very friendly and helpful and let us have a late checkout. You can tell it's an older building but they have done a nice job updating it and still keeping with Lake Tahoe feel.

"Okay, but..."
The staff at Avalon Lodge are great. That said, the location of our room was frustrating. When I booked the room, I didn't realize that Avalon Lodge was a 2-story building. Although my wife and I were thankful for the staff providing a corner room on the ground floor (we had our 3-month old infant with us), it was very noisy because it was located right next to the stairs. Other guests were coming and going all day and night, making it difficult to relax with all of the pounding of footsteps on the stairs. Stay at Avalon Lodge. Enjoy their muddled wine. Have a good time in Tahoe. Just don't book the ground floor room at the far end of the property if you want a good night's sleep.
