"The fact that we had a full suite instead of just one room as most places do. Also, the breakfast was terrific."

Rooms & Rates

Cozy, laid-back and nestled up against the forest, Forest Suites Resort offers outdoor lovers a year-round escape. “Location is a huge draw,” says Oyster -- pristine natural beauty surrounds guests in every season.

In the winter months, the snow-capped peaks of Heavenly Mountain sit in the hotel’s backyard, and shopping, dining and a movie theater are a few hundred feet away at Heavenly Village. In any season, a ride up the Heavenly Gondola soars right overhead and lends sweeping views of the Squaw Valley. After a day on the slopes, big-name casinos are half a block down the street. When the snow melts and the weather warms, sandy Lakeside Beach is a 15-minute walk away.

Dark wood furnishings and simple, homey décor give the hotel a relaxed mountain-lodge vibe. Standard rooms are basic, but the apartment-style suites are spacious with full kitchens, fireplaces and patios and sleep four to six guests. There is no restaurant on site, but fun seasonal activities include a hot chocolate bar and fire pits for marshmallow roasting in winter and spring. A daily wine and cheese reception is offered throughout the year.

In eco-conscious Tahoe fashion, guests can swap out daily housekeeping for a bottle of wine, and bath products are organic with biodegradable packaging. Wi-Fi, ample covered parking and a breakfast buffet are included with the daily resort fee.

From the press:
  • "The location of this resort is excellent -- 5½ acres bordering a forest, right behind the Heavenly Village, a half block from the casinos, and adjacent to a supermarket, cinema, and shops" -- Fodor's
  • "Location is a huge draw at Forest Suites Resort at Heavenly Village, which is situated about 100 meters from the lifts at Heavenly Village. The hotel, while close to the action of South Lake Tahoe village, is also relatively peaceful and shielded from noise" -- Oyster

Enjoyed Most: The fact that we had a full suite instead of just one room as most places do. Also, the breakfast was terrific.
Other Comments: Our suite this time seemed very rundown. The carpet was old and musty (especially in the hallways outside our room and in the staircases), and the sliding glass window in the living room was so bad that the first night you could actually see that the howling wind was coming in through the gaps.

Enjoyed Most: The staff was nice and the room was very clean.
Other Comments: The Travelzoo rate was great. I don't think we would pay full price, as the rooms are very old.

Enjoyed Most: The staff. They were very nice, helpful and friendly. And the green program they should be shouting it from the roof tops.
Other Comments: Stayed 5 nights and while the breakfast was fine providing different eggs every couple of days would be nice. Upgrading the sofa bed would be beneficial. Also a little more detail to cleanliness in the rooms would be nice.
