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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

"Nice hotel, but..."
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"LOVE this place"
Homey, comfortable, open, perfect. The front desk staff was incredibly helpful and welcoming. If you want to feel at home, this is the place to be.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"High quality at a great price"
The lodge has everything: friendly courteous staff, clean renovated rooms, comfortable beds, walking distance to the lake and casinos and a relaxing atmosphere! I've come to tahoe 10 times since Jan 14, and I can tell you its rare to find all of of these qualities in one place. Did I mention the free sangria happy hour? ;)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff were very friendly! The breakfast was underwhelming. They were working hard to set up the pool for the season, but unfortunately the hot tub wasn't operating at the time of our visit. I was surprised the staff didn't have written directions (with map and mileage) to the grocery store, hikes, etc. - this would've been helpful in this vacation […] destination.

"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). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location to downtown. Quiet, clean rooms. Pleasantly surprised. Pet friendly and even had a welcome treat for our dog! Easy walk to the lake too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Heating antiquated, hard to control temperature. Beds older and too soft. Room very musty, hard to breathe. Stayed one night, payed for two, no refund for second night . We would never stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Met our needs and expectations"
Went to South Lake Tahoe for three days of skiing late February. The Lodge accepts pets (20 Dollars per day), which was a prerequsite for us. Walking distance to Heavenly Village, Gondola, and Restaurants. Quiet neighborhood, close to the Lake and Casinos. Nourishing simple breakfast included. Easy Internet access. Fair price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome hotel experience!"
Ask for Ralph his customer service was exceptional .. my husband and I needed last minute (12:00 am) a place to stay (pet friendly accommodation BIG PLUS) Ralph accommodated us with all are needs .. This place is top of the line in my are book! :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel between beach and casinos"
Nice hotel rooms, totally cozy accommodations except for the fireplace never seemed to earn the room, enough to take the chill off room, but not warm enough for me. :( and shower was all the way on hot and seemed to cool off too. The bed was really nice and the room was cozy other than thatGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quick overnight stay for a wedding on the beach"
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.

It is conviently located two blocks from the Heavenly Village Gondola, the Avolon Lodge is a small and cozy place. No parking lot congestion.....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean and bed was comfortable. The wifi network was poor, didn't have it till the next day morning. Room to room call function not working, the front desk tried to help on that but couldn't get it work. Breakfast was minimal. Overall experience was satisfactory but expected more for the price paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice room + bathroom problems"
Overall room was good. Bed was fine. Hotel overall is old that has had remodel. Bathroom very cold and shower did not work properly. They attempted to fix but did not really work. Fridge failed and they replaced. Staff very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Horrible Place - Cave Dark Cold"
Not friendly, good for cave dwellers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice little hotel"
Room was very comfortable. It is heated with a fireplace controlled via the thermostat which worked pretty well, although the bathroom stayed rather cold. The breakfast was very tasty, but limited selection (only yogurt, oatmeal and some bread from a local bakery).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Relaxation and Rest"
Came up for the weekend to relax and recharge in beautiful Tahoe. Avalon Lodge was a pleasant place to stay. Our room was well stocked and comfortable with plenty of pillows, bathrobes, huge towels, and a beautiful bathroom/shower. The lodge is walking distance to the gondola area and casinos. Upon arrival at there was free mulled wine while we waited […] to check in. We missed the breakfast however the staff was more than happy to make us a plate with coffee and coffee cake to take back to the room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"nice updates but a little dark in the room"
Pros-great beds & pillows! nice touches...extra coat hooks in bathroom & near door, nice thick bathrobes, a magnifying mirror in the bathroom-extra big towels-clean fridge & microwave. Cons-kinda dark in the rooms-they did however mention if we wanted extra lighting to let them know-walls thin were you could hear conversations of your neighbor, but […] not too bad-overall...would definitely go back to stay or recommend to a friend.

"Close to casino and beach"
Our room was excellent and the staff was very helpful. The location was great, 2 blocks from the casino and 2.5 blocks from the beach. We look forward to going back next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expedia's online reviews not so reliable"
I read a piece of previous review saying that the hotel is perfect except the noise, and the rate is also high, so I booked it. But the lodge conditions are very disappointing. Noise is something that could not hide. In addition, the breakfast is just better than nothing. The door lock key is very old styled and not so easy to open, especially when […] you need to open it quickly. I was wondering why it is not a card. The matrix is much too soft. One bed is only good for one person. You will enjoy any movement from the other person who shares the same bed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
it is very conveniently located; almost everything's in a walking distance. clean room and very kind staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
could use more ventilation, lighting, breakfast is not a good feature, otherwise a good choice with pleasant inn keepers, very accommodatingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"So good stayed an extra night"
Great staff and rooms. Great value, rooms are a bit dark in a cabin like way but nice and clean. Beds were comfortable and loved having a fridge in room that was clean and that worked well. We were there on one of the hottest weeks of the year and although no air conditioning, room we had downstairs tucked away kept cool and cooled down at night. Great […] location, walked to casinos and Zephyr Cove which we went to from recommendation from staff just few miles away on Nevada side is our new favorite get away. Had so much fun riding the bikes around that are complimentary as well. We were supposed to leave on Friday morning, actually packed up and at brunch decided to call hotel to stay one more night...and they were able to get us a great weekend rate since we had already stayed three nights. Cannot wait to go back next summer. We will be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great stay, great hotel!"
Nothing but good things to say about this place. Loved the free sangria every afternoon. Very helpful staff, extremely comfortable and clean room. Awesome location close to state line. Highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was very clean. Service was very friendly and helpful. Disappointed to find that there is no air conditioning but the ceiling fan and open windows seemed to keep us plenty cool. Pool and hot tub were small but well maintained and pretty cozy. Provided either sun or shade. No issues with the shower as other posters had mentioned. Ours was great. […] Free breakfast was small but a nice touch. Free use of bikes was great! Room rate varied greatly from day to day; compare with other hotels to make sure you are not paying too much. I probably would have stayed elsewhere the last night since the rate jumped so high had I known there were many other options in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint hotel with a great location."
The staff was friendly. We were able to walk to the casinos and the beach. Everything was great except I would recommend that you ask for a 2nd floor room. We were downstairs and the floor creaked every time there was movement above.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful time. The Avalon Lodge is set back from the highway so it is quiet but within walking distance of Heavenly Village, which is full of nice restaurants and shops. The staff was very helpful and the room was just as shown in the hotels.com photos. We loved the breakfast -- steel cut oats, fresh fruit, juice, and bread. We would definitely […] stay here again.

"Nice hotel, but hot"
Small hotel, but nicely remodeled. Our only complaint was no air conditioning and it was hot for Tahoe. There was a ceiling fan and they had a stand up fan in the room, but the window didn't provide much air circulation for cool down. In the evening when we returned to the room we would open the door and place the fan in front to draw in cool air. Bed […] was comfortable and the shower was great, continental breakfast wasn't much.

Nice and friendly staff! Good cleanliness and a cozy area to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it's a really great Hotel with a personal touch. You can feel that the staff and management personally cares and goes above and beyond to make your stay a pleasant one.The rooms are very clean, maybe a bit dark for my taste but some people might call it cosy. Just be aware if you plan on staying during the summer that the rooms have no air conditioning. […] We stayed there during a heat wave and it can get uncomfortable at night. Really liked the healthy complementary breakfast as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great vacation at the Avalon Lodge!"
My husband and I spent 4 nights here and had the best time! The rooms were clean and decorated very tastefully. We loved the yummy sangria in the lobby every night. The breakfast was perfect for us. We used the hot tub and it was excellent! It was too cold for the pool, but it looked nice. I would highly recommend this tucked away hotel to couples looking […] for a romantic vacation. The rooms are a little small for families, but are perfect for two. Request a second floor room in the far corner of the building-those are the quietest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We eloped to Lake Tahoe & enjoyed our stay at the Avalon Lodge! We will definetly return again soon!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bed very comfortable. NO air conditioning, but luckily we did not need it because weather was cool and we had fans. Very close to the casinos. We were given a free pass to access the beach. This facility was old but clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Avalon So Lake Tahoe"
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast is more than you expect. Nice amenities in the room. Very quite and peaceful. Pool was open but not the hot tub.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice little place to stay"
Hotel it's self is small, under 20 rooms I believe but that's one of the things that makes it great. I was able to park my car right out side my room and everything was within walking distance including a nice private beach. The place can use a little updating cosmeticly but overall I was very happy and would def. stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
