We stayed here for the Tahoe Reggae Fest last weekend and really enjoyed it. We got in town too early for check-in, but was given a pass to the closest beach area. It was too crowded for our liking so we headed down to Nevada Beach, which was less crowded, plus it's at the campsite so you can bring coolers... More

Had a laid back stay at Basecamp Hotel. Will definitely be returning. Everything was so close by. No need to drive. Outdoor space was phenomenal, fun for kids also. Room was perfect size, staff was great. Love the live music in the bar right off the grass area.

Check in was delayed due to short housekeeping staff . Given comp drinks at the beer garden. Room was nice, clean, with comfortable bed. Only bad think was it was warmer than normal all weekend and not having AC in room made for a warm stay even with fans going in room. Spent more time outside as it was cooler.... More

Their stylist knows what he/she is doing but no one else seems to and the rate premium for the style is definitely not worth it. The guest room lighting is terrible, there is no air-conditioning and the ceiling fan is noisy, the premium balcony room has a solid wood railing so when you sit in the Adirondack chair you are...

upon arrival I could tell we picked the right place, the computers were down but instead of having us wait they said what was the rate quoted we told them and that is what they charged us. The staff is very friendly accommodating and whatever they could to make us feel like we were staying at home. The only reason... More

We absolutely loved this hotel!! Heard about it through TravelZoo, looked up photos on Trip Advisor, bought a voucher, and had a great time! The hotel is just as it appears in the website photos. Amanda greeted us at the front desk. She was very friendly and helpful. She lit the fire pit for us, served up a nice beer... More

Just Walked in with my husband to get a beverage and the Front desk Clerk didn't even acknowledge us. Did not say good afternoon, how may I help you, I'll be right with you etc..... Called to speak to Manager and nobody answered the phone, clearly the conversation she was engaged in is more important that making money for the... More

I found this hotel on the Hotel Tonight app which descibed it as 'hip'. That turned out to be true. This is a cool little hotel in a really good spot. The rroms were generously sized and very clean and tidy. The only down side it there was not a fridge in my room - totally minor (and I managed... More

We chose this hotel for our family getaway based on the website pictures, reviews and location. This "hotel" is going for a trendy/hip vibe which I thought was refreshing and I did like the decor. The location is the best thing this hotel has going for it. I did not find the staff overly friendly, or really friendly at all... More
