Overview

Family favorite walking distance to Tahoe’s Heavenly gondola, with huge rooms, two pools and free breakfast

The Lowdown

At the edge of Heavenly Village, a short walk to the gondola, Forest Suites Resort is a family favorite with huge rooms and resort-style amenities. The vast lobby is done up in traditional mountain style, with chalet-like eaves, a centerpiece stone fireplace and an eye-catching metal chandelier. Guestrooms start at a huge 650 square feet and sleep four or more guests in king beds and pull-out sleeper sofas. Most have full kitchens and open-plan living and dining areas, plus en-suite bathrooms with single vanities and over-tub showers. For larger groups or longer stays, two-bedroom suites offer an extra bathroom and more living space. While there’s no restaurant, guests can fuel up on a hearty (and free) hot breakfast spread of sausage, bacon, eggs, fruit, oatmeal, baked goods and more. Hot coffee is available in the lobby round the clock, and there are fun seasonal food treats including a wine and cheese reception and s’mores sessions by the outdoor fire pit. The hotel has an outdoor pool (open in spring and summer only), an XBOX game room, occasional movie nights and special events like weekend pony rides, a hot chocolate bar and ice cream socials.

In the Area

Catch the Heavenly Gondola up for pristine pistes and stunning Tahoe vistas. Whether you’re snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling, there’s plenty of winter sporting fun to be had off-property in the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains. When ski season ends, Adventure Peak (9,100 feet) picks up the action with a rock-climbing wall, restaurant and hiking trails galore. South Lake Tahoe is right by the Nevada border, where all the casinos are located. Harrah’s, 10 minutes down the road, is the largest, and it frequently hosts big name entertainers in its South Shore Room.

Good Location but uncomfortable room
Reviewed 4 days ago

The room we stayed was like a motel room. It was not very clean. I saw nuts and dirts on the floor and bathroom. The air conditioner was not working well. I could hear people talking outside. The location of the hotel is very good though, very close to Heavenly.

Wonderful weekend get away

The resort is very clean and comfortable. Our room was a 1 bedroom suite which was clean and cozy! The location is great and walkable to the village. On this trip the lobby was already decorated for Christmas and was stunning!

Perfect Getaway Location
Reviewed 1 month ago

Forest Suites is the perfect location for a getaway to South Lake Tahoe. We stayed in a two bedroom condo with full kitchen and living area. The daily buffet breakfast food was exceptionally good for being complimentary. Everything from bagels and cereals to hot eggs and bacon or sausage. The complex is right next door to many shops, restaurants and movie theaters. There is a grocery store across the street to stock up on any food or personal items needed. There is ample parking under the rooms of the buildings to keep your car out of the weather. The heated pool was a nice touch. The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. There is a computer and printer in the lobby for personal use.
