My wife and I have stayed at Basecamp several times for over a year now. Rooms are clean with fun and whimsically rustic decorations. The food is good, especially before heading out into nature. The common areas are welcoming and stylish...perfect for a beer by the fire after hiking/biking all day. Their new, adjacent property is awesome! This is the... More

Basecamp is a great addition to the Tahoe area, which (with apologies for the generalization) is full of rundown motels and overpriced ski lodges. This converted motel shows a lot of ingenuity and has some great little touches. Our room was very clean, quiet, and nicely furnished. I like staying in places that don't show their wear, and this one... More

The property is a boutique size motel that offers comfortable accommodations and inviting public spaces adorned with fixtures and treatments that set the mood of a traditional base camp atmosphere (converted hurricane lamp lights, for instance). There is an on-site bar and separate cafe area, with outdoor lawn area adjacent to the cafe. Room rates in May were a good... More

This place is extremely clever. They hired a great artist and design team to put this place together. This place is fun, but designed to encourage you to spend a bit of your evening outside your room. Weather it's games in the cozy lobby or a quick drink at the bar, several fire pits for S'mores, several balconies, swings, an... More

Rustic Chic. This hotel has great design & decor and clean, clean, clean rooms. Walk to casinos, concerts. Nice outdoor spaces, New restaurant going in and a cute corner bar in the Lobby for wine and beer. Awesome Tahoe style place to stay.

We booked 4 rooms at the very last moment and found only this hotel who had so many rooms available at a reasonable price. We were not expecting anything from it but were reasonably surprised. The hotel was recently remodeled, all rooms were nicely upgraded, there was no smell or the room didn't stink at all and carpets were cleaned.... More

The Good: Very fun remodel of an old style outdoor entrance motor lodge. The design throughout is clever and entertaining and they truly did a lot with what they had. The staff was engaging and energetic and provided a good vibe for the property. Also, free Tesla charging is available (always a plus)! The Bad: You can only do so... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days, overall we were happy with the room, comfortable beds, loved the breakfast and happy hour, good proximity to shopping and Heavenly, no issues with wifi. As many other reviews have pointed out, noise travels through the thin walls and floors so do not expect a quiet stay.

Got a groupon for a weekend stay here. The atmosphere was hip and trendy. Blues and greens. Nice colors. 2 queen beds with bunk beds in top. Comfortable bed. We were on the third floor so we can't hear footsteps. I could see how first floor folks could hear upstairs folks walking as the floors are sometimes creaky. The fixtures... More

We stayed just one night and I wish we could stay longer. I love the style of the hotel. Everything was super clean. I'm not kidding the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. I don't want to got home. They have a simple free breakfast and it was delicious.
