I had arrived at Basecamp under the impression I was going to be staying in the Great Indoor room for the 2 nights I had booked. I had booked incorrectly after being advised by a staff member that I had the right booking online. I was very disappointed as it was my fiancee's birthday. Reading the disappointment on my face,...

We have stayed here every season since it's opening and it never disappoints! They just keep adding more and more awesome features. Can't wait to return in a couple weeks. Great place for both family and friends.

I love the theme of this hotel and the style is very outdoorsy and cute. It's nice to have a mid-range hotel with rooms suited for larger groups as well. The room was clean with the exception of the shower. The floor of the shower was brown enough for me to wear sandals inside. I didn't like that the ladies...

I'd been wanting to stay at Basecamp since my last few trips to Tahoe. I'd been to their beer garden and loved the vibe, food and location. We'd only stayed at the podunk inns and lodges nearby, which are generally pretty gross but fine for an overnight to ski. This was a step up, for sure. I had pretty high...

Fun for the kids, not the best sleep. The mattress was very poor quality, would have preferred to sleep on a cot :( The shower was super small but had plenty of soaps. No fridge but it was cold enough outside, we just left our water bottles on the patio

I'd prefer to go 3.5 stars if I could but I'll stick with 3 since the bad was...bad. The good: very chill environment. Close walking to anything in the area, including the gondola ride and casinos. Loved the motel 6 style, with the party going on in the middle. Really fun environment, great decor. Perfect for the event which was;...

Great location by the casino's and stores. Room was very clean and the stuff was very friendly. Loved the beer garden and the outside sitting area, especially the airstream Trailer. Can't wait to stay at the hotel again!

I spent 2 nights at Basecamp hotel in South Lake Tahoe and absolutely love it. The hotel is located within a walkable distance from casinos, restaurants, Heavenly ski lift and the lake. Yet, it is tucked away from the main traffic. The hotel is newly renovated and chicly decorated. We stayed in a standard king room which has with a...

We had a great time staying here. The location was perfect for walking to anything in the area. They were very knowledgeable about hiking in the area and any other activities. We also really enjoyed the live music on Saturday night. It was nice to have drinks and live entertainment right there in the hotel.
