We loved that this hotel was pet friendly! They supplied treats, blanket, towel, and a ball for our dog. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortably filled with plenty of pillows and blankets. We loved that it was in walking distance to Heavenly Village and many eateries.

We enjoyed our stay, despite the fact that they had given away all the king size bed rooms on the lower floor. I have a back injury and can't take our pets up and down stairs. We were given two queens in a nicely appointed room. An hour or so later, the manager knocked, and asked if we would be...

We stayed in SLT and Gardnerville at their sister property. Both were great service and fabulously decorated. The owners care - and we will recommend it to everyone! Breakfast was great, too!! Merci to Jasen and Anne

At the Avalon Lodge, we do charge for all additional people over double occupancy in our rooms. Additionally, we have a maximum occupancy of 3 people of any age in a room. These policies were put in place based on guest feedback and to provide a quiet and private retreat for our guests. Due to your upset nature, we made...

I stayed at this hotel in July. The location is great. It is walking distance from the casinos and a private beach. The staff is welcoming. There is free sangria at 4:00 every day and a nice continental breakfast of oatmeal, fruit, juice, coffee, yogurt. The room was a little dark for me but the beds were comfy. The pictures...

Thank you for your kind words and feedback. Just this week we have added additional lighting to all downstairs rooms and will be adding additional lighting to the upstairs rooms this fall.
