Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Ask at desk for passses to the Lake Tahoe shoreline. The beach area is fenced off and they charge for parking and $5 per person just to go to the beach. You can't walk arround the fenced area.

2 Ski days in South Lake Tahoe

Checking in was effortless. Nice rooms recently renovated. Nicely decorated with modern flat screen TV. The breakfast in the lobby was a nice touch. However if more than 6 guesses show up you would have to eat standing up or go back to your room. The two minor problems we had was the taps in the shower, we needed assistance to figure out they worked. The hot tub was out of commission. All in all an enjoyable stay. I have no problem recommending this hotel.

Fast pleasure getaway!

The Hotel is very well mantained. It is obvious there has been a recent redue for the property; that is a very positive thing. There are touches which make the stay very inviting.. warm cider, a small but adequate shop for snacks and beverages. The comp breakfast, though, a little limited in choices, had all the nutrious picks! Location.. close to Tahoe's main calling cards.. stateline and its' activities, and the close to ski lifts.. water.. well, the lake is not right at you rfootsteps.. but there is an adequate pool, and hot tub! And then there are the comp bikes.. It was a very plesant stay!

Last minute getaway

The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable and cozy after a long week at work, Surrounded by beautiful pines trees that made you feel relaxed as soon as you arrived. The pool was clean and heated which made it a great way to spend the evening even after going to the beach all day which is only a couple of blocks away. The hotel is walking distance to plenty of places to eat and shop. We would definitely stay there again.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

I asked for a place to go that was not typical of the tourist and the waiter place we had breakfast at told us about Fallen Leaf Lake... about 20 minutes away... not as many people with a small beach and boat rentals... it was perfect. Make sure you ask a local for something interesting to do that is different.

Anniversary weekend

The walls are paper thin so it was very noisy. The room was nice & location ok but too noisy. We were able to bring our dog though. The only day that we tried to eat the breakfast, the oatmeal was terrible. So overall not bad really just don't plan on sleeping much.

Great Location, Updated, Nice Staff

Nicely updated hotel in a great location. Walking distance to the Heavenly gondola, shops, casinos, etc. Walls are thin and if the hotel gets full it gets a bit noisy. Overall nice place, will stay here again.

Clean accommodations with comfy beds!

The Avalon Lodge was perfect for our 3 day stay in S. Lake Tahoe! The best part about this place was definitely the beds! Their Queen pillow top mattresses and cozy comforters made for a good night's sleep! Our updated room was on the second floor of the lodge and included modern furnishings and 2 Queen beds, clean linens, a small fridge, fireplace heater (with a thermostat) and a nice bathroom with a beautiful stone shower (no tub). A complimentary continental breakfast is also served until about 10am. We had looked at several different hotel/lodge options and this was the best option for us! The only drawback about this place is the noise level. The walls are pretty thin and those folks checking out early were lugging their suitcases across the walkway and down the stairs and it was pretty loud. Also, the children running across the walkway woke me up at an early hour. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely book here again.. if only to sleep in those comfy beds again!

Will never stay at this place, not even for free. Horrible!!!

This place has minimal upgrades, no telephone in the room, flat pillows, the bathroom has no counter space just a stand alone sink, shower is on the same level as the bathroom floor with no borders, the worst part about this lodge is that the walls and ceilings are paper thin. The hotel is poorly insulated both for weather and noise. Anything on the first floor is a nightmare, it seems as if horses gallop above your head anytime some walks on the second floor. Not worth the money...

Nice cozy small lodge for heavenly ski trip

also close enough to downtown to walk around (unless it is very cold). But overall, they paid attention to small detail and make the best of a old lodge look updated. Clean and comfortable enough, Definitely better than many cheap motel/hotel alternatives. Friendly staffs as well.
