“Heavenly stay at Forest Suites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Just the two of us we never book a suite but the wedding we were attending arranged for one bedroom suites - loved the spaciousness! So worth it. Turned into a relaxating mini-vacation, best nights' sleep. Husband woke up early and watched tv in living room. No time for the wine tasting or 's'mores but used the kitchen. A cookie sheet in the oven was great for reheating pizza from Blue Dog Gourmet Pizza across the street to crispy perfection. Entire staff was friendly, helpful and welcoming. Suggessted breakfast buffet before 8 to avoid big crowds. Very few people, mounds of piping hot items and good selection of cold as well. Really liked the option of just clean towels and trash emptied in exchange for a gift - chose the movie package: 2 sodas, microwave popcorn, chocolate bar and bag of candy. Some reviewers say its old and needs updating - the important thing is it is CLEAN! Told our son who sometimes works in Tahoe and learned he always stays here. We will go back.

Room Tip: On first floor close to car, so didn't have to use elevator that reviewers said was creepy.

Everything was just great for our family. We've stayed in one bedroom suite and are going to return here next time in our visit lake Tahoe. I have no idea how it is in other kind of rooms. This one perfectly match our wishes. Guys, I'd recommend you just ignore negative reviews of these suites.

Dear Vladimir,

Thank you for trying us out and giving our property a shot. We understand how difficult it is to receive new business and I'm delighted you will be a return guest for hopefully many years to come? The suites are fantastic and perfect for many who want space, a full kitchen & a living room. We wish you the best this fall and we look forward to your next visit.

Thanks again Vladimir

Over the last 15 days my family and I have had the chance to stay at the Forest Suites Resort in two separate stays. We were traveling through while going to a family wedding and then traveling through to come home. We set up 2 separate reservations. Both we executed flawlessly. This trip we did not take advantage of the area or the other amenities other than the buffet breakfast. The breakfast was piping hot and fresh. When checking in the first night the front desk recommended a time for breakfast when it would be less crowded. He determined this by the events going on in town and the time they started. We walked right up got plates of steaming delicious breakfast. He was correct. The lobby was pack upon check out about 30 minutes later. This was a nice thoughtful gesture.
The first night we were on the road and had checked in late. The room was not the temperature we would have liked for sleeping, though the AC cooled it down before too long. On the way back through to come home we were going to be checking in late again. I called ahead and asked that the temperature for the room was set to accommodate our preferences. We were delighted to walk into our room at the perfect temperature. It is these types of thoughtful gestures that will keep us coming back to the Forest Suites time and time again.

Dear Kylandra,

We cant't thank you enough for picking our resort every time you are in South Lake. That is very invaluable to us. This last trip of yours resulted in 2 different nights in which you selected our property and we love that. We know you were traveling with a large party which sets up perfect for our property. It sound like the hot breakfast and the additional service you received on adjusting the temperature in the room beforehand exceeded your expectations & were delighted we were able to do execute that for you. Come back to see us again before next summer!

Great location, wonderful staff and good facilities. Stayed at this property for 4 nights at the end of the summer holidays. The rooms was spacious, for myself, my wife and 3 kids. Location in the centre of Heavenly made everything easy to walk to. The kids lovely the swimming pools and the hotel had lots of activities each day for them. The breakfast room was busy, but always everything available. Overall an excellent place to stay in South Lake Tahoe.

We usually stay at casinos (rooms comp'd) in south lake Tahoe but decided to book a room to stay with a group celebrating our friends' wedding. Although I started getting nervous about what the room was going to look like after using the elevator & walking down the hallway, I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the 2 bedroom room. The decor looked a little "tired" but the second bedroom had a queen bed & a twin bed which was nice so my 2 girls didn't fight with having to share a bed (altho one of them could have slept on the pull out couch in the front room). The location was fabulous (right behind the very nice Marriott timberlodge), so dining & shopping was very close by, as were the casinos (all walking distance). Altho we drove to the public beach (in wedding attire), it is definitely within walking distance. The continental breakfast was ok. But given this wasn't a timeshare, we were also pleasantly surprised to see they had free wine/cheese hour, family movie nights & campfire/s'mores (tho we didn't have time to check all if this out). Our kids enjoyed the pool/spa too!
Don't know that we will necessarily return but we were definitely satisfied with our stay!

Well I booked this room on Travelocity and was guaranteed 2 beds as I was going up with a buddy. When we got there to check in, they said we were in an upgraded king room with a pull out sofa. Since most pull out sofas have little padding and are terrible to sleep on we declined the upgrade and we got 2 beds in Room 3XX.

So I am not sure how nice the main lodge rooms are but the strip of Rooms that are 301-317 are a remnant of some old motel and is cobbled together with the rest of the resort. Don't stay in one of these rooms as they are dated and in bad need of maintenance and upgrades. The fan in our bathroom sounded like it was going to die. The walls are paper thin and sice there are carports underneath, a lot people ulling in at all hours and then talking very loudly as they walk to their rooms. The beds are really soft and I had a backache my second day.

The breakfast buffet is OK but the crowds are the worst I have ever seen for a buffet and I almost didn't want to go there.

Positives: The location is great.

Room Tip: Don't stay in Room 301-317.

We had a girls weekend get together here. Hotel wasnt perfect ,our shower leaked in the suite hall bathroom. But So what, it is older but but not delapatated like some have mentioned< i would say that comment is going overboard.
It was a large suite , it met our needs, supplied kitchen if you wanted to cook & eat, full fridge . We had plenty of room for 5 women. It had just snowed early in the season / Nov. 2012 . All that mattered was we had a great time together!
The hotel is very close to EVERYTHING! The casinos , the stores , the gondola
You cant beat that!
I wouldnt give it 5 stars but for a large family or get together ...the prices are fair , the suites are Large ...you are only there to sleep anyways... GET UP GO OUT AND DO SOMETHING!

Room Tip: Our suite was in the back and quite...........it was nice to have a parking spot under car port

Dear Kimzbtl,

We want to thank you for posting a review on your girls getaway weekend even though it was last year. We're delighted the suite was over-sized and perfect for your group. It sounds like you guys were here to have a fun time and I'm assuming the Casinos were in the plans as you mentioned to get up and get out? We hope you come back and visit us again for another weekend getaway. Wishing you the best!

Thanks again,
