“Our favorite place to stay in South Lake Tahoe”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We stayed 3 nights at the Forest Suites Resort. This is our 3rd visit to this resort and again we were very pleased with our stay. The staff is fantastic. Susan Garcia, the Front Office Manager, went out of her way to be helpful to us. We also appreciated Jacob, the wine and cheese stewart. He was very pleasant and offer great suggestions as to what to do in the area. Please note the suites are LARGE and clean. They're like one bedroom apartments. The bed was very comfortable. In the mornings we enjoyed the complimentary hot breakfast that included eggs, potatoes, sausage and bacon as well as all kinds of toast, cereal and yogurt. The breakfast is served on real plates not styrofoam plates! The pool was clean and warm in the late afternoon. If you like to hike, there is trail in the Van Sickle State Park that is directly behind the Forest Suites Resort. You drive up the mountain to the park's parking lot and then look for the start of the trail sign. The view of Lake Tahoe and the entire Tahoe basin is awesome from this trail.

Room Tip: Select a room on the bottom floor if you want to sit out on a patio near the pool.

Dear Daniel R,

We appreciate the kind words about so many of our staff members. Its an honor to hear such flattering remarks about our staff and rest assure we will be sharing these comments with the team. We couldn't agree more about the pool-patio rooms and the great experience that goes along with them. We hope to see you soon and have a great rest of the summer!

I have always loved this hotel and stay there every time I go to Tahoe. The staff is fantastic, the hotel is clean, and they have an amazing location. The hotel is two blocks from the casinos, and across the street from Heavenly Village. The only issue I had with this hotel is on my last visit (this past week) I had a pretty hard bed, and terribly hard pillows. I have NEVER had this issue before staying here and have reported my stay to the manager so that she is aware that the change in pillows (or at least the ones in my room) were uncomfortable and made my opinion of the hotel waiver. Hopefully this can be resolved because otherwise it is the perfect hotel.

Dear Madds16,

We sincerely thank you for the continued patronage throughout the years. We appreciate the kind words about our resort being clean, an amazing location with great service. For next time, we have medium-firm memory foam pillows on every bed and then also offer softer pillows in our closets just in case our guests want a different sleeping experience. I hope this helps for next time? Until then, we wish you a wonderful start to a great summer and look forward to your next visit.

Best regards,

This place is just awesome!! We stayed there on 05-29-14 for one night in a 2 bedroom suite. Wish we could have stayed longer. Very spacious, big living room, full kitchen, 2 big bedrooms each with its own bathroom. Very conveniently located. Just minutes away from the N. Tahoe hotels and casinos. Very clean and comfortable. Free parking. Decent American continental breakfast. We were very happy with our stay and will probably stay there again during our next trip to Tahoe!!

The resort is in walking distance to the casinos and surrounded by mostly fast food type restaurants. The suite was way larger than I expected, especially since the website did not offer many pictures. The suite has a full kitchen with utensils and a full sized refrigerator. My husband and I were attending a wedding ceremony at the site. The Forest has a small space for weddings, it probably holds about 50 people. We also got a really great price due to the wedding being held here. We were there for only two nights and did not have to deal with any of the people working however we were told we would get a bottle of wine of the second night that we did not get. I had to request it upon checkout. One other turn off is that the bar is open only between the hours of 5 and 7. I guess because the resort is catered more towards families.

Dear Dominique S,

We thank you for spending time with us during your family/friends wedding. You had mentioned our large over sized suites but our website not having enough pictures promoting that aspect of our property. We have a brand new website launching next month and are very excited about updating and adding more pics on our rooms to showcase this. For instance, our pics show older type TV's and we now have large 48" LCD's for our guests. We are definitely a highly family oriented resort but we certainly still cater to couples, singles, etc... We have experimented with the bar being open longer but most guests after one or two drinks head over to the array of more-equipped bars or casinos for a different type experience after typical happy hours. We again thank you and look forward to another visit.

Warm regards,

This resort was clean, comfy and offers a full breakfast every morning which costs 12.00 p day p room I believe. Room was clean and fully stocked with all needed amenities for cooking. The pool was clean and heated to a comfortable 80 degrees. The jacuzzi was also clean and not overcrowded. the property has 3 different pools and jacuzzi's. There were tons of families at the resort but we did not hear any of the noises coming their rooms or from the garage downstairs. Very calm and serene area. We had such a great time there and the staff was very courteous and helpful. I would recommend this resort to anyone. The only thing i was a little displeased with was the amount of activities for kids on the sunday and monday we were there. There pretty much wasn't anything for them to take part in besides the game room and pool. Other than that I loved it here!

Room Tip: 600 building seems to have the quietest pool area. Not crowded.

Dear Erica a,

Thank you very much for spending a great Memorial Day Weekend with us. With multiple pools and hot tubs, it's nice to be able to pick and choose which one of the pools you would like to relax at. It sounds like the room was perfect for your stay but we didn't have enough child's activities on Sunday. We will look at that as a potential opportunity to enhance the experience. Currently on Saturday and Sunday, we have arts and crafts from 9am-10am and outdoor games from 10am-11am. One thing we also do from Memorial Day weekend thru the summer every weekend is have pony rides from 12pm-6pm for kids as well. Monday might be an opportunity for us to introduce more kids activities and we thank you for the suggestion. We very much appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you again.

We got a good deal for a two-rm suite on TravelZoo, but were a bit disappointed in the age/condition of the building, especially the tiny old elevator. The carport beneath the room was convenient, but maintenance was lacking. The main lobby area/building was nice with a welcoming fireplace area, a game area upstairs, and a small cute chapel. We probably won't go back.

Dear Suzanne C,

We thank you for staying with us last year and getting a chance to post a review. Our carports are a great luxury in Lake Tahoe during those winter and snow months as your car is protected from the elements and a lot of time can be saved on big snow days. Our elevators are legal, pass code/audit every year but are small and we understand that limitation. Similar to an urban downtown older style elevator as they get the job done but not enormous. We certainly wish that small element of our resort doesn't prohibit you from returning? We always hope you come back and stay with us in the future?

Warm regards,

This was our second stay at Forest Suites. Our first stay in Nov 2013 was in older unit and had problems. Based on my review of that stay, hotel management offered us an upgrade and discounted rate for our next stay. This time, April 2014 we stayed in one of the Suites which was absolutely incredible. Suite was large, spacious with fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Hotel staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, allowing us to extend our stay another night at the same rate (even though it was a Friday) due to snowstorm. Wine and Cheese every afternoon is a nice feature. Older rooms do need upgrading. Thank you for listening to our concerns from our first stay and offering us a second opportunity to stay at Forest Suites.

First and foremost we are thrilled you gave us a second chance and were delighted you had a fantastic experience. It was also a pleasure to meet you and your husband during your few day stay. We pride ourselves on many things but service and passionate employees is a high value of ours as we know our guests will be taken care of. I know you will be intending to stay again when you are here in Lake Tahoe and please don't hesitate to call us.
