In the middle of everything!

Great location. As I have always been told, it's location, location., location. The Forest Suites Resort was a great jumping off place for my family and our two day getaway to South Lake Tahoe. Withing walking distance is a movie Theater, Grocery Store, Hardware Store and Hiking Outfitter +++ many more. The hotel helped arrange tickets for the Tahoe Queen (Paddle Wheel Boat on Lake Tahoe) and even called their free shuttle to pick us up. We totally enjoyed the weekend and couldn't have been more pleased with the rate, room and the Wildlife ( a small Black Bear visited the Hotel Grounds as we were packing up! What an exciting event for our 6 year old!). We'll stay here again!

Location, location, location

This is a Hotel that its located 1 block from the main street, and right behind a brand new resort, 2 minutes from access to the gondola, where you can go up to the top of the mountain (we did). Its not brand new, but , again, location, location, location cant be beat. Personal was really friendly, breakfast was on the house, and plentiful, rooms with free WIFI. We didn't need to use the car to go around, since we were in the middle of the action, but its really a quiet location, no noise at all.

Nice place, but ageing

We went there for skiing. There was a large living room with couch and a attached kitchenette. The bedroom was nice. Every unit has a heating and AC element build in with thermostat. But they are loud. The hotel is very conveniently next to the gondola. The room do not to be set up for skiers though. Strange. No storage for ski clothing, skis and boots.

Excellent for skiing at Heavenly

We were there for a skiing weekend at Heavenly. The location is perfect (a few steps to gondola), the warm breakfasts also very good, and very friendly staff.

Feels like crashing at someone's house

I was here for a wedding recently and was upgraded to the suite. It felt like someone's apartment so I decided to have the wedding party come over for drinks after the rehearsal/casino. It went over well and the was plenty of room for 12 of us. The only complaint was some of the towels had stains that were none too pleasant. However, I would go there again for the price!

Location is the key

The hotel has a very good location. I ended up with a upgrade from 1 to 2 bedroom, which worked fine. Hallway and elevator are a old, but the rooms are very comfortable.
