Forest Suites Resort at Heavenly Village
Ranked #24 of 66 Hotels in South Lake Tahoe
Reviewed 6 March 2012

This resort is in a great location very 100 yards from the Heavenly gondola but is very old and tired. They really, really really need to update the entire facility. Everything is old. The kitchen in the suites have barely enough glasses and plates for 4 people to have wine and cheese. Forget cooking anything. If you make dishes dirty there is no dishwasher to clean them. That would be ok but there is no dish rack to put hand washed dishes either. Seriously I'm ok with "rustic" but this isn't. The hot tub is really small and not inviting at all. Continental breakfast was nice but sparce. A little effort would go a long way. Some pastries, a waffle maker, maybe some scrambled eggs would make it much better. On the good side the place was clean and the bed comfortable.

Just back from a weekend at the Forest Suites. The rooms are not fancy but have all you would need for a weekend. There is a free breakfast included and a couple of hot tubs for apres ski. The big attraction is location, location, location - walking distance to the Heavenly Gondola and all sorts of restaurants and retail. The staff is friendly and helpful (comped us a drink while they tried to find our lost reservation). My one itty bitty complaint is that their internet is as slow and unreliable as dial-up.

My husband booked a getaway for us President's Day weekend for some R&R. Forest Suites resort was perfect for our weekend getaway and I wish we could have stayed longer! The location is literally right behind the Heavenly Gondola, which was so convenient for anytime we wanted to do anything. The staff was super friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Our room was huge, with a separate bedroom, separate living room and a full kitchen. There was a contintental breakfast that we ate at each morning with great breakfast choices and helped keep the cost down. My favorite part about the resort was how quiet everything was. Even though there were rooms on either side of us, we didn't hear a peep once we were in our room. We had such a great experience, we have already planned our next trip back and I have told my husband we just might have to renew our wedding vows here!

Room Tip: I think most of the rooms are suites. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and it was HUGE! This would be...

My family just recently stayed at this resort and we could not have asked for anything better! The location cannot be beat...walking distance to everything! The staff was very friendly and helped with all of our questions about things to do around Tahoe. We stayed in the two bedroom suite, which was huge, and everything was very clean and comfortable. I cannot wait to go back!

I stayed here in February, and there are so many good things to say about it. The rooms were amazing, friendly staff, and that's not even to mention the amazing location right in Heavenly village, right on the lift. Restaurants, shops, movie theatre, all within walking distance, great hot tub, and overall a great atmosphere. The russian judge gives it a 10 out of 10
