Whoever the owner is, along with staff, managing and maintenance are doing a phenomenal job with this hotel. Stayed here about a month ago. Was our second time here. They have expanded, which is a great sign. The design and theme is cohesive around the property and surroundings. Staff is super accommodating and pleasant. Breakfast is delicious as ever. Room...

I just stayed at the Basecamp for 2 nights over the weekend. My daughter and I stayed in a queen queen room. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. The bathroom was also spotless. The rooms don't have a fridge but there is a little cooler that you can get filled at the bar and store a couple drinks.... More

This is a great hotel in a great location. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 is because of the room. It was clean and very nice, however, it was a first floor room next to the stairs. So you could hear people stomping up the stairs late at night and... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your recent experience at Basecamp! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay overall. We look forward to welcoming you back to an upper floor room away from the stairwell in the near future! : ) More

Charming fun place to stay when visiting south Lake Tahoe. From the welcoming staff (Anthony), the uniquely decorated rooms and front desk, this place is great. It's walking distance to the lake, casinos, restaurants and shopping. Thank you Anthony and all the staff. I will definitely stay here again!

This hotel is a lovely little gem of a place, the rooms were a good size (not too big, not too small) and were stylishly decorated - very homely in feel. The hotel has a very nice feel to it, the staff were fantastically helpful and friendly, and I can imagine that it would have a great vibe to it... More

2 motels were combined to create the Basecamp Hotel. Many tasteful ( contemporary rustic) and I'm sure nessesary upgrades were done inside as well as on the fassade. That said, it still has a motel feel with thin walls and creaky floors, also the carpet on the stairs is in tatters. The location is ideal for walking to shops, restaurants... More

Very friendly staff and comfortable accommodations. We stayed three nights and hiked around the Lake Tahoe area. Easy to walk to many downtown destinations. They offered a healthy breakfast and you were accessible to answer any questions. Andy was incredibly helpful with things to do, places to eat and locations to hike. He made us feel very welcome and consequently... More

This was are first trip to Tahoe and it was pretty Awesome!! We found base camp on trip advisor and the reviews were spot on. The only negative would be the fact that they were still cleaning our room at check in. The decor was so cute and they paid attention to every detail. Our room was spacious, the view... More
