Go while you can still get a room. Clean, nicely designed, with lots of thoughtful touches, great service, and an awesome location. If you like lakes, hikes, biking, lying in your room appreciating comforts, roasting smores by the fire, hot-tubbing on the roof, or being able to cross a state-line and hit up a casino, Basecamp is wonderful. I'll be back. Breakfast was great too - loved the oatmeal.

I can't remember the last time I stayed somewhere that gave such close attention to every detail of the experience. If you appreciate design, you will fall in love immediately; It feels like you walked into a design magazine. The rooms are so warm and thoughtful. Every inch of space is covered with custom details that you continue to uncover as you relax. The staff was kind and helpful. You can tell they love the place, and are happy to share it with you.

I will be staying here again and again.

Their website drew us in but the fact that they lived up to their claims and then some is what will bring us back. Great breakfast bites, beautiful decor and little touches (the local art was lovely), comfortable and friendly, within walking distance of everything South Shore.

Room Tip: Penthouse suite next to the hot tub is a great space but as an FYI there are intermittent noisy peop...

The crew behind Basecamp have taken an old-school motel, and upgraded it into the stratosphere. The detail and the design of everything from the firepit to the room numbers and color scheme shine though, and the same attention is shown to their service. At every point, the staff went out of their way to make sure our group was taken care of, right down to providing s'mores ingredients in the evening!

I stayed at Basecamp on a company retreat and we couldn't have picked a better place. The hotel is walking distance to the best of what South Lake has to offer and rooms were well appointed with one of the most comfortable beds of any hotel I've ever stayed in. When it came to getting recommendations of what to do the staff was super knowledgeable and helped us figure out a killer mountain biking trail. They even went one step further and hooked us up with a discount at a local bike rental shop who got us all setup for the ride. Having a jacuzzi to relax in at the end of the day and breakfast ready in the morning was an extra bonus!

Staying at Basecamp hotel is alone worth the trip to South Lake Tahoe.

The rooms are beautiful and the attention to details throughout the whole hotel is amazing. Well done!
The staff is really helpful and nice, the location is great and the rooftop jacuzzi is a welcome bonus after a long day of activities. Be aware it closes at 10pm.

I will definitely come back to stay at Basecamp.

This is my second stay at Basecamp after staying shortly after their opening. I loved it the first time but it has got even better. The reception area has received some excellent finishing touches like a lamp made from an old ordnance survey telescope and an operating hot tub with views of the mountain.

However the best thing was the introduction of smokes at the firepit. This gave me a chance to mingle with some of the other guests and have a really fun evening.

The artwork is amazing and quirky too.

However the most impressive part was the staff who are completely versed in all the activities that south lake has to offer. They are super friendly and gave me a bespoke itinerary for my week long stay which included mountain biking, fly fishing and water skiing.

Quite simple this place is fantastic.
