Reviewed 14 July 2013

If you look at the Forest Suites website, they describe their updated rooms and furnishings, new decor and amenities. Far from it ! The place is extremely dated and poorly maintained (e.g. old furniture, noisy AC units that really didn't cool, small uncomfortable beds, extremely cheap linens, ancient curtains falling off the rod, peeling paint). Not enough parking for the...

Dear Guest, With all due respect, you are most upset that we didn't allow you to cancel out of the three night minimum during the busiest week of the year. We apologize that you had to fulfill your obligation but slamming our property due to this is unacceptable. Every room in South Lake Tahoe is 4 times the normal price...

Reviewed 9 July 2013

We stayed in a 2bd, 2bath suite. The rooms were very spacious, we had so much fun hanging out here. The kids went downstairs at night and enjoyed a scheduled Movie. The Hotel was in close proximity to shops and entertainment, we will definitely return sometime in the future. Staff was very nice and helpful. V & the Hollister Gang.

Dear V and the Hollister Gang, We're delighted you guys had a rockin' time. As busy as the 4th of July was, we are very glad you enjoyed yourself and relaxed. Our resort has many activities centered around families and the movie night I'm sure was a nice break for you and your spouse while the kids enjoyed a flick...

We decided to try Forest Suites for our Fourth of July Vacation even after reading some poor reviews to try to save a little money on a two bedroom suite rather than two hotel rooms. We had stayed there several years ago and decided to try it again. Personally I will not stay there again but it might be OK...

Dear Shelley, It sounds like the romantic vacation you were looking for was hindered and we apologize about that. Yes, we certainly are setup for families and that value experience but that shouldn't shortfall any experience. We definitely had well over 600 people for the 4th of July week & as you could imagine, ice was utilized by guests with...

Dear famtrav, Thanks for posting on Trip Advisor. You were expecting something different for the term "resort". I apologize about the dissatisfaction in that perception.

This isn't a resort, it's suites with a swimming pool and hot tub. The swimming pool area is beautiful, the lobby is very nice, room 535 was musty, outdated and reached by dingy depressing hallways. The worst part was wrinkling my nose every time I went back into the room from the fresh air. The suite was huge though if...

Dear Jeremy from Seattle, Thanks for promoting the property from an overall perspective. I wanted to touch on the fact that you thoroughly enjoyed the generous wine and cheese mixer and that we have beautiful pool areas but shouldn't be called a "resort"?

Dear Derek from Fremont, I had a chance to review the survey that you completed. As a fellow camper and backpacker, I’m a little shocked at the lack of sympathy and deep intent to bash our property without a hint of understanding about your surroundings and the measures we take. We left you multiple messages to discuss the situation with...
