Short trip to attend a weddingPosted Jul 31, 2016
Pros: Location. Rustic charm.
Cons: Air conditioning. Available person at front desk without ringing bell.
Location: Location was within walking distance of shops and restaurants.
Stayed at the Avalon for three nights in July. I liked the rustic charm of the hotel but might not. Overall I liked it, There were a few things that could have been better.

DisappointingPosted Jul 26, 2016
Pros: Close to Golf course and Casino's with in walking distance.
Cons: More fans in the room. Breakfast
Cleaning Staff left our door unlocked anyone could have walked in. We could not use the pool because of filter problem very disappointing! Room was stuffy no AC only one window to open. Water in the shower very hot could not control temp. Breakfast is just Coffee and Oatmeal?!

Good LocationPosted Jul 10, 2016
Cons: See above.
Location: Excellent location. Within walking distance of the base of Heavenly Valley and the casinos.
Hotel is in desperate need of maintenance!!! No hot water in the shower in our original room, scalding hot water in the bathroom sink as soon as you turn it on, and broken electrical outlet covers near the bed. Bathroom faucet needs to be tightened up. I think they really need to get a maintenance person in there and go room to room to look for issues. Hotel is so small that you hear everything that happens outside. Continental breakfast is very, very limited. Other than that, it is in a great location.

Gut gelegen in South Lake TahoePosted Jun 15, 2016
Meine Frau und ich hatten dieses Hotel als Ausgangspunkt für Touren am Lake Tahoe gebucht. Die Lage ist gut, sehr dicht an Restaurants und der Stateline Border gelegen (Fußläufig). Das Zimmer war ok ausgestattet (Kühlschrank. Mikrowelle, Fernseher). Was fehlte war eine Klimaanlage (die finde ich eh nicht besonders, mag aber im Hochsommer notwendig sein). Das Frühstück ist .... minimalistisch. Haferschleim (ja!), Kaffee und Kuchen.Dafür war das Wifi recht fix.

Hotel is very small but nice. We didn't like is the fact that you could hear your neighbors upstairs walking around in their room, kinda creepy. The bed is too close to the door, you can hear people walk by at night if your trying to sleep. Some positive points. It has a nice fireplace and a really nice shower! its a good quiet neighborhood away from the main street. only walking distance away from Heavenly if your going skiing.

Overall great!Posted Feb 7, 2016
Cons: A little more light in the room...a little dark without the blinds up and curtains open.
Close to the lake, close to the gondola, great location!
