Have stayed In Lake Tahoe numerous times, but this was my first stay at Forest Suites. It won't be my last. The location is perfect, within walking distance of restaurants, shops, casinos, and ski lifts (although I wasn't there during ski season). The room I had was a one bedroom suite which included a living room, full sized kitchen, bedroom... More

Love the 2 minute walk to the Heavenly shopping area. While the resort is somewhat dated, the 1 bedroom we stayed in was very large and clean. The 2 minute walk to the shops and restaurants in Heavenly is its greatest asset.

This is an older facility... 1960's. I believe that is what the concierge said. The rooms were decent; however, the bathroom wasn’t clean. There was hair in the shower and on the floor. It was good enough for a week stay. It had a kitchenette which was important to me. Well we were there, the pool closest to us was... More

We stay at this property multiple times a year and I have reviewed this place before in 2015. We get the 2-bedroom suite for 6 friends. 1.) The check-in is always easy. 2.) The best breakfast is included (if you can wake up before 10am after a night at the casinos.) 3.) Walking distance to the casinos, restaurants, the gondola,... More

Location is excellent. We walked to all our destinations without having to move the car once -- which made for a relaxing weekend. The hotel itself is in need of upgrading. The halls smell a little musty. The rooms are sufficient. The bed was rock hard which I now see in other reviews. Even the pillows were too stiff to... More

Great location in Heavenly Village. Short walk to restaurants and shops. Lake Tahoe beaches short drive or walkable for the fit. Very nice for the price free breakfast. Nice onsite activities such as wine and cheese, movies etc. The staff was excellent. Really went out of the way to be helpful. If I needed something they responded very quickly. They... More

Staff was exceptional - exceeded our expectations. Hotel was in need of updating, things were chalked over (should have been re-done) and some lights and outlets weren't working. Buffet breakfast was made with powdered eggs, and the rest wasn't much better, we ended up going to the local grocery store and making breakfast in our room. The staff is the... More

This "resort" is located right in Heavenly Village which is a fantastic location and the reason for the two stars. The place itself is subpar and needs to be torn down. Everything was in orginal condition and old - including the carpet. When you feel the need to wear shoes all the time and put toilet paper on the seat... More

Indeed portions of the resort are over 50 years old and we continue to make improvements each year. We are placing new carpeting this fall in about 35% of our rooms which is a good start. More

Stayed in the 300s rooms above the carport in the back. Must have had the worst room on the property or this place wouldn't still be in business.
