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.

This is a super average hotel. It is in need of a remodel, the bathroom and kitchen are old and dingy. The balcony is not a real balcony, its 1 foot of standing only room. The pool area could use an upgrade. But on the positive side, its clean, the staff is friendly and they are environmentally friendly, you can even get wine in lieu of housekeeping. The TV didnt work when I got in, however someone was up to fix it within minutes of me calling, which was impressive. The location is pretty decent and the breakfast is full of options. Good for a budget conscious family.

Old but nice

I had a suite and it had a large screen TV with a full service kitchen a large stove and cooking area.
Living room is large 2 of the bulbs were blown out no bigger but they should be checked regularly.
Bedroom had a nice large king bed the pillow were a little rough but doable.
Bathroom large clean.
AC is very noisy that was shut off.
Car park below the Hotel was safe and quiet area. The elevator is like something from the 50s the old open door then slide across feature kinda cute.
Location is 10 out of 10.
Nice assortment for breakfast.
