When you first enter the dark dank hallway, you are overwhelmed by a awful musty disgusting odor. The carpet lining the hallway is dirty! The room was a good size, but dimly lit. The king size bed was actually clean and comfortable. (I checked for bed bugs). The sofa bed in the livingroom was a lumpy old couch from Salvation... More

It should be a lovely property but it's NOT. It stunk of heavy orange oil in the hallway - to kill the cockroaches???? Or to cover up some foul odor??? The rooms are dark and drab - in need of major rehabilitation. The pool was murky all weekend and the jacuzzi smelled terrible. We were charged nearly $300 dollars per... More

We stayed here over the July 4th weekend, which I know can be pricey. I was actually surprised to find rooms just a couple days before we left, but now I know why. This hotel must be very old and it certainly appeared that way. It had the feel of a 1930's apartment complex that was converted to a "resort".... More

I originally booked a single room but when I saw how creepy it was, I hightailed it back to the front desk to declare there was no way I could stay in that depressing room. Fortunately, there was a one-bedroom suite for $30 more per night so I upgraded. The suite was fantastic, large living room, kitchen and bedroom with... More

I went to the forest with my fiance for a little get away. it was a last minute trip to Tahoe and they were great in accommodating us in what we needed, we went in between seasons so the rates weren't bad at all. The location was great it was within walking distance of the casinos and the heavenly village... More

We were there to bike 100 miles around Lake Tahoe, so a working hot tub would have been nice. (If I recall, one of the hot tubs was inoperable last year, too). Other than that, the suites are ridiculously big (and they put me in a 2-bedroom by mistake). Clean, fast service (my cable needed fixing), and for a free... More

My family and I booked Forest Suites for my graduation weekend, we had 16 people in our group and stayed in the two bedroom suites and presidential suite. We had more than enough space to gather, cook meals, and hang out. This resort is very clean and comfortable and the suites have everything you would need to cook a great... More

Everyone was very pleased with rooms and the chapel and reception set up was perfect! Our wedding coordinator Alicia was a perfectionist who handled the details just as we requested. The planning was easy and... More

We booked this motel through Expedia with the understanding that it was cheaper that way. We had read the reviews on TripAdvisor and saw the pictures of this place - Forest Suites Resort. Boy were we disappointed when saw our room. The room was a very small basic motel room with a very small bathroom. The front lobby looked beautiful,... More
