“Loved the Forest Suites Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2008

My Husband and I spent the weekend at the Forest Suites Resort and from arrival to departure we had a wonderful experience. When we checked in they had upgraded us to a 1 room suite that was very nice and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. It's in a perfect location and the price was very reasonalbe for the Lake Tahoe area. We are looking forward to our next visit!

We had a great time in Tahoe! We went with a small group and ended up with three rooms. Rooms 1 and 2 were nice suites with a large family room and kitchen area, with seperate bedroom and bath. Both rooms overlooked a nicely landscaped pool area with barbeques and plenty of outdoor seating. Room 3 was a beautiful suite complete with modern kitchen, well appointed living room with a fireplace, and plasma TV. The bedroom also had fireplace and plasma TV, and the large master bath included a jacuzzi tub, and large 2 head shower. The facilities were well cared for, and clean. The location is walking distance to the casino core area, Heavenly Valley Gondola, and a wonderful restricted entry beach area. This property would be highly recommnded for families and couples for both winter and summer activities.

Based on other reviews I was a bit nervous about our stay at the Forest Suites but I found it to be a great location for our stay. We took the advice from Trip Advisor and asked for an air conditioned two bedroom suite. It was great...the place was clean and well maintained. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the location was convenient to many amenities. It was a bit noisy on the weekend but what like facility isn't? Overall I'd stay here again and enjoyed our experience.

Our family stayed 3 nights in this reasonably priced resort and we enjoyed our stay tremendously. We'll definitely be back - I don't know why we would want to stay anywhere else.

The location has to be one of the best in Tahoe. You're literally steps away from Heavenly Village, Casinos, a 24 hour grocery store (comes in handy since all rooms have kitchens) and just about anything else you'd want to be close to in Tahoe. But you're also about a block off the main drive through town, so you're not exposed to all the noise and chaos that other properties might be. You'll sleep well here (which reminds me...very comfortable beds!)

Our room was very clean and comfortable and we enjoyed spending time in our suite. It was hot outside for the time we were in town so it was *great* to come back to an air-conditioned suite where we could relax, make some refreshments in the kitchen, and either hang out or go to one of the property's two pools (or hot tubs, at night.)

The staff was friendly and professional whenever we encountered them - we always felt welcome and important. And their continental breakfast is better than most I've experienced, which is key when you're with the family. I was even told that they bake their own pastries fresh every day.

We've stayed here in the past, but the owners and management have clearly stepped it up and are improving the property. It's never looked better, and we'll always consider it our home away from home, whenever we're in Tahoe.

The forest suites in Lake Tahoe was absolutely one of the nicest places that i ever visited. The staff was friendly and helpful. the resort was close to everything that i wanted to see in Tahoe. The room was absolutely amazing - 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths. It had a kitchen and two flat-screen tv's, and some really comfortable beds and couches. Everything was clean and beautiful in the room. The general layout of the resort is amazing - i think they said it covers 5 acres!
This was my first time to Tahoe and i can't go back and stay at the Forest Suites Resort!

I stayed at the Forest Suites resort for two days and I had a great time. The resort is in a perfect location, walking distance to the casinos. Right near the resort is a gondola ride that takes you to the heavenly ski resort, perfect for winter skiing and great views for summer. The hotel itself is very accommodating. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in questions we had on things to do in Tahoe. The rooms are very spacious and well maintained. This place is great for large groups or families. Really a great deal and price. If you want to experience Tahoe, this is the place to do it.

This resort had everything we needed and more. Our beautifully renovated suite was within walking distance to everything South Shore had to offer, great staff, great pools (yes, two!) and spa facilities. Very pretty place.
