The Avalon Lodge

Heavenly, Lake Tahoe

The hotel

A sublime South Lake Tahoe location places the boutique elegance of Avalon Lodge right on the cusp of the California/Nevada border and as the Heavenly gondola is just a couple of blocks away, you'll soon discover just why this is considered to be such an amazing all-year-round destination. Natural beauty is everywhere you turn and from pine-forested mountain slopes to reflective sun sets over the lake, no smooth stone has been left unchecked when it comes to Avalon Lodge's dedication to showcasing the scintillating scenery of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area. All of that clean and fresh mountain air will no doubt help you work up an appetite and what better way to start the day than with a healthy dose of baked goodies and fresh coffee whilst overlooking the lake. After you've relaxed into the morning then outdoor hot tubs, swimming pools and lakeside strolls await and if you're visiting during the colder months then borrowing a pair of snowshoes is always an ideal fit. With so much natural beauty on display it would be rude not to make the folks back home green with envy and thanks to free WiFi you'll be able to do just that from the comfort of your gorgeous guest room before preparing to get out there and explore.

My son is non verbal special needs. We visited in October. They claim he pooped all over the sheets and damaged a bunch of sheets, bedding, etc. apparently bed sheets are made of gold and worth 250$ and cannot be washed off. They made false allegations that my son pooped all over the mattress. their mattress there was already stains all over it.… Read more
My son is non verbal special needs. We visited in October. They claim he pooped all over the sheets and damaged a bunch of sheets, bedding, etc. apparently bed sheets are made of gold and worth 250$ and cannot be washed off. They made false allegations that my son pooped all over the mattress. their mattress there was already stains all over it. Honestly I think they would love to charge anyone they can for whatever they can. Then they said “well if you had just told us before we could have dealt with this better.” Oh so, ur gonna to come over to my hotel and help me with my son?? I seriously doubt it. This place sucks all the money out of you. I’ll never go back Read less

Hotel room was clean. Kinda muggy, but found 2 fans inside the closet and was very happy! Helped with circulation a ton. The pathways to and from the room are pretty jacked up. Uneven pavement and areas where its popped up completely, but..if you watch your step, you'll be fine. The pool is non existent. Lol. Which kind of sucks in the middle of… Read more
Hotel room was clean. Kinda muggy, but found 2 fans inside the closet and was very happy! Helped with circulation a ton. The pathways to and from the room are pretty jacked up. Uneven pavement and areas where its popped up completely, but..if you watch your step, you'll be fine. The pool is non existent. Lol. Which kind of sucks in the middle of July. The rooms were clean, and the beds were comfy. The water pressure was good tok for showers and washing face/brushing teeth. Comes equipped with a fridge and microwave in the room so that was convenient. Also. The location to the venue was great. So...aside the outside looks of things, its a decent stay for shelter and location. Read less

I was a guest of Avalon lodge located at 4075 Manzanita Ave, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150 on 29th Sep 2018. This is a terrible place and your senses could feel the moment you pass through the hotel drive way. I was extremely disappointed with the poor service and cleanliness offered there. This is the first worst experience we ever had. We had 2 rooms reserved for the same day and one of our rooms had a bad shower curtains (with lot of stains/mold). I had an year and half old baby and the bathroom wasn't hygienic for a baby's shower. The curtains had lot of stains/mold. Obviously after seeing that, I approached the hotel front desk at 7 PM to change my room and the staff mentioned the hotel was fully occupied. OK, I then requested to change the shower curtain at least and went off for our dinner. To our dismay, when we returned back at 9 PM, the staff mentioned that they don't had any extra curtains in stock and says they are helpless and that was terrible to hear and was shocked at with that blunt response from the hotel staff to a customer.Can't a customer expect a clean shower curtain from this hotel management ?? And when questioned on why was i not informed immediately when they discovered that they were running out of stock and cannot replace the curtains. If informed early, we could have options to check other hotels and move out of that place. Anyways overall experience to share and hope it helps others not to fall prey to this false advertisement. It was very unpleasant stay at this place with the staff being very rude. The bathrooms aren't clean.The hotel pics shown on the website doesn't match with the reality. In short, i feel taken advantage of and don't want someone else screwing up their vacation time on these stupid things. Would NEVER recommend this place and beyond disappointed. So anyone thinking about visiting this hotel, please be aware of and be prepared to blow off your vacation mood. Read less

Florescent light. No AC. Brown everything. Shower didn't drain which was disgusting... It was the worst money we have spent. There's no attention to detail in anything. No liquid soap in dispenser. I would recommend staying anywhere else.
