I stayed at Basecamp during my birthday weekend this past Feb. I had a great stay and I was thoroughly impressed for the following reasons:
1) Comfort: management did an excellent job of refurbishing the rooms for a very comfy feeling. After a long day of riding, I always want to come back to a pleasant room, take a hot shower and relax until it's time to hit the town - Basecamp definitely provided this feeling. I came with 2 buddies so we had the room with two queen beds and two twin bunk beds on top (room sleeps 4 people). There was plenty of room and everyone was quite comfortable - no complaints on comfort and space.
2) Proximity: Basecamp is a very short walk away to the gondola to Heavenly.. The hotel is also right next door to Harvey's, so it was great to be able to be in indoors no time given how frigid it was outside. Location is ideal.
3) Staff/Amenities: from the time I checked in, the staff made me feel right at home. They provided great recs for dinner and nightlife. Also has complimentary breakfast and a cool little bar in the lobby - great way to meet others in the hotel (along with the hot tub!)
In all, Basecamp is a great experience at an affordable price. This is definitely my go to spot if I plan to ride Heavenly for the weekend!
p.s. the decor in the rooms and all around the hotel is AWESOME. Definitely a fan of the orange theme.
