We had 5 ski clubs from the DC/ Virginia area stay here last week. The rooms were dirty, dated, and I even saw a mouse in my kitchen. The rooms never got warm due to poor insulation, and there were hardly any kitchen pots or pans to cook with. There wasn't even one wine glass in any of the condos.... More

We stayed here for a week travelling with Virgin holidays. It was a pleasant surprise for us after previously organising independant accomodation in the French Alps. The 1 bedroomed apartment was very spacious and clean. There was a lack of bedding when we arrived but this was soon fixed when we asked at reception. the room was cleaned, bins were... More

Pros and cons to this 'resort'. The price is good compared to other accommodation in the area and close to shops. The 2 bedroom suite was a good size and the beds comfortable. The best view of the resort is the lobby building - the suites, however, are dated - old carpeting, dirty walls. I'm sure it was lovely when... More

We stayed at the Forest Suites in room 602 January 4 - 13, 2010. We discovered that both toilets were broken at about 4:00 AM. There were virtually no pots or pans, no silverware, and there was no can opener. The refrigerator did not keep things cold. The television just stopped working during the NFL playoff games. (The list of... More

I want to first off apologize for the experiences you had during your stay at our hotel. I remember your stay well as we had morning management meetings regarding your room. I also had numerous conversations with Heavenly Resort regarding your reservation as you had reported to them that your heater did not work. It was my understanding and observation... More

My parents and I stayed here over MLK weekend. The location is fantastic, you don't have to worry about parking or driving, you can simply walk to the Heavenly gondola and can safely enjoy a beer after a hard day of skiing. We stayed in a 2br/2bath suite. The room was very clean, accomodating, beds were comfortable. The hotel is... More

We didnt have to wait in any lines and had fresh snow all day! I felt like we were the first people on the entire mountain!! Another wonderful... More

The sliding glass door had a wind storm coming through. Not pots and pans. Few plates and cups. Little silver ware. Fridge broken. Odor in hall. The staff was really nice about correcting what they could.

We spent 3 days in December in Forrest Suites Resort. The plan was to get a decent place for 3 nights before we join our friends in a bigger house. This place looks *very* dated. Yes clean, but the looking at the faded color of the floors and walls I was wondering if owners decided to run it without spending... More

I had a blast in S Lake Tahoe this past new years. The hotel was in a great location across the street from Heavenly Gondola, restaurants, cinema, speciality stores and casinos. We were also able to rent our ski equipment at the hotel. Hats off to the GM, for making the environment cozy, inviting and convenient. The hotel staff was... More
