The location couldn't be better, but I was disappointed in my room. I spent three nights in their Great Indoors room and hated it. The room has an interesting look with the tent over the bed, the picnic table and faux log "campfire," but it wasn't a comfortable room to stay in. The tented bed felt claustrophobic and created a...

Cute place to stay. Such a different atmosphere than most hotels. The location is great, especially if you are going to see a show at Harvey's. The beer gardens, fire pits and roof top hot tub made for some fun evenings. By far the best part of our stay was Mike who worked the front desk. He worked all three... More

After having seen various magazine articles and reviews of Basecamp, it had been on my 'to visit' list for a while. When I saw it on Travelzoo, I went for it and had pretty high expectations. It's true that the design of this hotel is amazing - every detail, they nailed. It's modern, quirky, fun and stylish - something that... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience. First and foremost, please accept my apologies as we clearly dropped the ball during your stay. We have been in the midst of a number of transitions at the hotel recently, including our breakfast, but that is certainly not something that should ever effect our guests to this extent,... More

This was such a super cute and fun place to stay!!! I said something about how much I liked it here to one of the guys working there and he said yeah It was like working at a back yard BBQ! Very cool atmosphere and vibe. Plus it is super close to everything!!! Directly across the street from Harvey's outdoor... More

The Hotel has a good location and the rooms are fine. The low rating comes from the service we received from the front desk. We had 4 rooms booked for 3 nights each and were set to check out on Sunday, the same day we rented a boat to go out on the lake. So we either wanted to get... More

Hi Michael, Thank you for your review. I am so disappointed to hear about the service you received. Please know this is unacceptable, and it has been addressed with the staff. While it is true that we cannot always accommodate late checkout requests beyond 1pm (checkout is at 11am), we are certainly happy to store luggage for our guests. Our... More

Great location! Close to beach! Close to casinos! Great for the morning walk! The lobby & room look has the "industrial lodge look". It is an old hotel that has been revitalized with an up to date "hipster" vibe. Love the beer garden, airstream, adirondack chair, BBQ, fire pit theme...Breakfast could be revamped a bit...the need for more than 1... More

Comfy beds, great location near the beach and stateline bars/casinos, friendly staff and free WiFi. About a 5 minute walk to the beach and the beachpass is included as part of your stay. We arrived early and the two people at reception were welcoming and managed to find us a room to check in early

Love this place! Right on the border of CA & NV, seriously, on state line street. I don't know if Basecamp is related to the Ace hotels, but style is wonderfully similar. Funky and cool and comfortable. Lots of great details. Perfect spaces for a big celebration. We were here for a family reunion and Basecamp couldn't have been more... More

When I booked this place I did so based on the Basecamp theme and it does live up to that theme. I'm fine with the minimalist rooms because they are clean and comfortable. I also appreciate the ability to charge my EV car while there. The staff went out of their way to provide me charging and they were all... More

The location is great - walking distance to the lake and to casinos/shopping. The room is clean with modern amenities and a comfortable bed. Rooftops are nice to enjoy by the fire and to socialize. Front desk staff could be a bit more friendly. I got a "What's up" from a front desk person while standing, waiting for her to... More
