“Perfect for our family of 6!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

My wife and I have 4 kids, so finding a suitable place to stay can be tough. Forest Suites Resort was better than we could've expected! The suite felt like a spacious cabin. With one room having one queen, a twin, and enough room for a playpen for our littlest one, and another room just for mommy and daddy, it was fantastic! Another very pleasant surprise was the first-rate service the staff provided. When I went to get checked in there was someone ahead of me, and another employee came out of the back to help me. This happened again when I had a question the next day. Very cool!

Dear Remsil,

We cannot agree with you more about being perfect for a family of 6. We truly understand that bigger families means more expenses and added value is what we strive to give to our guests. Whether that be more attentive service from our staff, additional room amenities like a room with 3 beds and a pull-out couch, or the array of family type activities on property, we strive to deliver that everyday. We certainly always want Forest Suites to be your home away from home while in South Lake Tahoe.

Warm regards,

We have stayed here several times. The 2 bedroom condo is great! The breakfast is good and the pool/spa is good too. Definitely will be coming here many more times. Great value for the price. The full kitchen in the condo was great, and Raley's across the street. Made the family trip wonderful!

Dear Tami,

We thank you for posting a review about our resort. I think all of us are delighted you enjoyed the 2 bedroom suite, the pools, the spas & kitchen. Having full kitchens in our suites definitely is a major differentiator as most resorts, hotels and motels here in South Lake Tahoe do not have full kitchens. With a grocery store across the street, it certainly allows you like many other families to save money as they can cook and prepare snacks in their rooms & we like that. We can't wait for you to come back to the resort.

Best!

We first chose to stay here two years ago because my kids do not like to eat out for the most part. We figured it would save us money and be more convenient if we got a suite here that had a full kitchen for us to cook. It worked out well! We have stayed there 5 times in three years and we go back every time!

We have seen a few things as others mentioned with being an older room, but between last year and this year, many of those things were resolved and the room we stayed in had upgraded furniture. (We stayed in this room last year as well)

Our room had an entrance right out to the pool, which my kids LOVED! We swam every day we were there. They make it very family friendly and are very responsive. I also like how they have a choice of full service or minimal service with a gift. We don't need our sheets changed every day, but they still gave towel service and replenished amenities as needed.

There were a few cons as the bathroom exhaust fan didn't work well, but didn't affect the use of the bathroom and a couple tiles on the pool were coming off, but it didn't damper or hamper our fun swimming experience at all.

We will stay here again!

Room Tip: If you have a family, building 2 only has two floors and is right next to the pool. We met a lot of...

Dear Angel,

"Great for Families"- we love your heading because we are great for families. I can't say thank you enough for staying with us every time you are in South Lake Tahoe. That type of return business is truly invaluable. We are delighted you noticed many of the updates to the property and specifically your room from last year. I can assure you every year & throughout the year we are making great changes and enhancing the property across all fronts to ensure we meet and exceed all of our guests expectations. Lastly, thanks for commenting on our "Green Clean" program in which you enjoyed receiving a gift for light housekeeping services. We all appreciate that participation.

Warm regards,

We stayed there for a girl's high school basketball tournament and it was a great experience. Great accomodations and so nice and close to lots of things to do! The breakfast was great every morning! I'd definitely stay there again!

Been there numerous times and the location is outstanding, as it is truly at Stateline and it's very convenient to be able to walk to the Nevada casinos. Wonderful for skiers who can also walk to the Heavenly gondola right next to the hotel. A perfect location for families who want a great "value" experience. Rustic mountain feel and a warm staff who cater to your needs.

Room Tip: The best rooms are the Presidential Suite and the Black Diamond Suite....if available, ask for these...

David David,

We appreciate the great location description. With the casinos across the street it makes for a perfect setting to walk to any casino, restaurant, bar, or shopping area here within the village & around Stateline. We certainly love our proximity to the gondola and as you can imagine or have seen before, the ski experience in the winter is truly phenomenal. Lastly, we want to thank you for pointing out how we are a great value for families with great service attached to that experience. You hit the nail on the head and we appreciate that description. We hope to see you again real soon!

Warm regards,

This is the 3rd time I have stayed here. The property is, in places, a little shabby and dated, however, the suites are a great value, clean. If there are ANY problems they are taken care of immediately. At a prior stay, the TV remote in my friend's room didn't work. Maintenance was there in less than 20 minutes to fix it. Love being in a central location and not having to drive to the grocery store, restaurants, shopping, or the lake. It was all within walking distance. Will absolutely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at Forest Suites during the American Century Golf Tournament. We loved the central location. We walked to the Edgewood Golf Course for the tournament, to restaurants, the grocery store, and the lakeshore. There is also a bicycle rental shop in Heavenly Village, which we may avail ourselves of on future trips. We liked having a fridge and microwave in our room, as well as the incentives given for not needing full housekeeping services each day: complimentary bottle of wine (red or white), movie snacks (popcorn, candy, sodas) and/or energy snacks (trail mix, Gatorade, juice, fruit). We will definitely stay at Forest Suites again!

Dear Linda from Anaheim,

What a great week last week during American Century Golf Classic? Golf tournaments with celebrities, Rascal Flatts concert, the band Perry and Tim Mgraw all within wrapped up into 5 EPIC days in South Lake. We're delighted you took advantage of our "Green Initiatives" and were rewarded with gifts. That is certainly a way for us to involve our guests into "Green" type of responsibility as this program is so incredibly popular. Come back to stay with us even before another golf classic tournament next year.

Best!
