Property great! Hospitality BETTER!

Met up with a friend from another city and found this place on line. JACKPOT! We picked the place primarily for the location (2 blocks from the lake with access to a private beach, 2 blocks the other way to Heavenly Village, and a few more to the casinos). Small, very recently remodeled property. The fixtures, etc. were nice, the beds/bedding/towels were great, but what wowed me was the hospitality of the staff. They were willing to go above and beyond to make sure that we, as their guests, were happy. Their continental breakfast was more than just your standard box of pastries or a bunch of bagels and a toaster. It was simple, but unique. Each morning, there was a crock pot of oatmeal and a different fresh fruit (one day was blueberries, the next was raspberries). There was also yogurt and a nutbread. And of course some nice coffee. They're also in the process of adding some new summertime amenities like loaner bicycles and kayaks. The amenity is so new, all the bikes weren't put together yet when we stayed.

We went in the early summer, hoping to do some hiking, but had no real idea of where to start. The knowledgeable staff pointed us to the well known places, as well as a few off-the-beaten-track areas that were fantastic.

weekend getaway

When we checked into the hotel we were greeted by Ann who was so friendly and helpful with questions. Our room was very clean, with fridge and microwave and coffee for the morning. They offered pastry breads and oatmeal in the morning. The pool had plenty of sun in the afternoon. There was a gas firepit poolside that was a nice touch. On the second floor there was a large outdoor sitting area that was perfect in the morning for reading the paper and drinking coffee. The beach and downtown casino area were all within close walking range. We went to see a concert at Harvey's outdoor venue, and loved that we didn't have to drive. We also took the Gondola up to Heavenly.The ride was a fun experience. I would stay at Avalon Hotel again in a heartbeat. So much better and personable than the larger hotels!!!

At the ticket counter for the Gondola, we purchased discounted food vouchers to use at the cafe at Heavenly...eat before or after you take the trip, what a rip off. Don't play into the tourist trap. Everything up there is a la carte and expensive.

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.
