“Guys Camping Trip”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I cannot say enough about Forest Suites Resort! As a frequent visitor to Tahoe, Forest Suites has been my go to hotel since my first stay there 3 years ago. I have stayed there for multiple reasons on multiple occassions. From family get togethers, birthday celebrations, snow boarding couples trips, and then now, for my yearly camping trip with the guys. Let me preface with the fact that this was a camping trip and there were no plans to stay in a hotel....BUT, with the different work schedules, and transportation times, our camping trip started with Forest Suites as our meeting spot. It was last minute, but Forest Suites staff could not have been more accomodating. Even with limited vacancy, Forest Suites quickly accomodated 12 guys with open arms. Our suites were perfect as usual, and it was extremely nice to find they have added to their breakfast buffet! You cannot go wrong when looking for a wonderful, accomodating, close to everything place in Tahoe. Seriously!

Thanks for pit-stopping at our resort while in South Lake Tahoe. We appreciate your continued patronage. We love when you experience excellent service as we opened our arms to your group of 12. Thanks for also recognizing our new menu at our hot american style buffet. Neil- thanks again and we look forward to your next visit. Maybe it will be another snowboarding trip?

This is a great place to stay.
I'm in wheelchair and trying to find a place that will fit my needs is very very hard.
Most places will tell you sure we are all set up for your needs till you arrive and find out you can't get through the door. But not at forest suits. We got a one bedroome suite very spacious,I was able to move around with very little effort. This room had it all. Great breakfast if your up early.
Everything you read on there website is true,when they say you get this or that with your stay they mean it! The only problem that I found was the Rollin shower. My frist look at the bathroom told me they had just redone the room. In the shower stall there was a built in seat to transfer onto. Great.
But the shower head and soap dish were out of reach???. And that caused a accident witch left me on the floor. No grip on shower stall floor. My wife called the front desk for help and they came right away. Just a few scrapes and bruises. And if you like bears they have them to. No extra charge. We will be back

Dear Dave W,

Thank you very much for your latest review. It sounds like the ADA room fit most of your needs although the soap dish could be in a better position. We are looking at the "ADA issued shower insert" and coming up with some solutions as we speak. We love the candid feedback and we can assure you we will not ignore any suggestion as we utilize these to be better. Dave- thanks again and we look forward to your next visit.

Warm regards,

I got married at Forest Suites about a year ago.. And just returned for a getaway and late 1st anniversary celebration. I can not imagine it being any other way.. They have made every experience memorable.. The wedding staff from the minister, to my photographer, to alesha and victoria.. The Front office staff are so friendly and go above and beyond to make every guest happy.. They made our wedding guest and every stay of ours something to remember.. Every suite was spacious and very clean. Our room was so beautiful we can not wait to return.. We recommend Forest suites to anyone they are such a family friendly resort with hot breakfast and so many activities for guest to enjoy.. Forest Suites will always be a wonderful place full of memories for my family, friends and husband...

I had stayed at Forest Suites YEARS ago when it was Forest Inn and really liked it. They put a promotion on Living Social, which was a really great room rate for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath full kitchen suite ($99/night--amazing!) I figured even if it was not the best place these days, that was still a good deal, so went with it without really knowing what the place is like now. We were amazed what a value this resort is. First, the customer service was outstanding on all fronts, from front desk and concierge to the people who refill food for breakfast. The accommodations were first rate (king bed and en-suite bath in one bedroom, a Queen and Single bed in the second bedroom with a full bath just outside, a fully equipped kitchen, cable TV with a DVD player attached in BOTH main room and king bedroom, and a really comfortable "living room" area. Our parking was right outside the hallway from our room--amazingly convenient. The resort offers full breakfast every morning, wine and cheese each evening, "movie nights," and exercise/fitness room and actual fitness classes daily, a pool and jacuzzi, a chapel (which my mother used in the mornings to do her daily prayers), and a really helpful concierge service. They also are very environmentally minded and offered incentives to do a "short service" room cleaning (basically just a towel and garbage change) by offering a bottle of wine or snack pack for your room the day after check-in. Location is right behind the Gondola at stateline, but far enough back to be very quiet and feel isolated. You can walk to most of the South Shore destinations (Casinos, shops and the grocery store across the street) from the resort.) To be honest I have absolutely NOTHING I could fault in our stay. Fabulous. Highest recommendation!

Dear Caren,

We really appreciate your continued patronage. You were here years ago and came back to the property. For the last couple years we have offered our property on travel zoo and living social during the shoulder season and what a great deal for all of us. We love seeing familiar faces & new faces from promos such as this. When we read this review its very great to hear so many of our offerings were experienced perfectly. We cant thank you enough for your business and come back to see us soon!

Thanks

My Sweetheart and I tied the knot in their chapel on October 5th.
It would have been nice to have the bar available for a cocktail afterward but they were gearing up for a large event later that day.
Before you pay or plan a ceremony, be sure that everyone needed (minister, notary, photographer) is available or you may have to settle for a different time slot. It worked out fine, I calmed the bridezilla in me and forced myself to be flexible. it did not matter or affect anything in the end, we had a beautiful ceremony.
The suites are charming and clean. Yes, they are a bit dated but I felt it was part of the ambiance. If you are not satisfied with simply clean,comfortable and friendly and are looking for all the bells and whistles of a five star hotel you will be disappointed.
The value is great and the staff are pleasant. My elder father hates casinos, eating out and cigarette smoke so this was perfect for him. They had a ground floor suite near the pool. Very pretty grounds. I would stay again.

Very efficient, friendly staff. We made the room reservation with a "living social" discount. We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit with a kitchen, dining and living area. Our patio opened up near the pool and hot tub. A large cold and hot breakfast comes with the room as well as week night wine and cheese social. There is family movie night, story telling around the outdoor fire pit. Within walking distance of "Heavenly" shopping mall.

If you are there multiple nights and only want fresh towels and to have trash picked up, you are offered one choice from a selection of gifts.

The wedding couple are going to book their room and guest's rooms at this peoperty.

Room Tip: Request ground level for easier pool access

Dear Alison,
"
Outstanding Service" is an incredible headline. We hope the hockey games went well? We always strive to give great service & what a great description of wonderful experience you received. it sounds like a great potluck event by the pool you had too? You are so correct when you mention about the large over-sized living rooms and that another roll-away bed can be placed inside which is spot on. We are very lucky to have such large suites that can have a hide-a-bed and a roll-away bed in the same room.

We wish you the best!
