“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

During a West Coast Tour we stayed for 3 nights at the Basecamp Hotel and we loved it. It was special, superfriendly and modern. Even a Hut Tub existed. Breakfast was great with FRESH Orange juice!!! We did not have that even in 5Star Hotels on our trip. Rooms were lovely and the whole Basecamp style was totally ours! We will definately book it again!

Such thought and style put into little details that make this place really special. In the heart of South Lake Tahoe and apart from busy, noisy, smokey casinos, it has an ideal location in a truly unique design.

Coming from Boston, my husband and I visited in February for a skiing trip and had an amazing week here. Old motel converted to an chic boutique hotel with an outdoorsy vibe, it was upgraded clearly with an eye for details. From the pipes for shower towel rods to camp lighting fixtures with clean, trim lines with a local feel - the rooms are brand-new, clean, and comfy. Breakfast was simple (bagels, pastries, oatmeal and included!) but delicious (amazing coffee from local producers in Nevada - so good we asked for the brand) and happy hour specials with wine/beer after a long day of skiing was fun and relaxing. The smores by the fireside and hot tub were a great touch. Best of all, the staff was young, knowledgeable, vibrant, and eager to help with random questions and helping plan out day trips. All around fantastic experience - have recommended to all our friends. Perfect spot for couples, groups of friends, and families.

Despite being in the shadow of a couple huge casinos on the Nevada side of the state line, Basecamp is a wonderful hotel that treats its guests very well. They carry the basecamp theme through all their graphics, but the place is very comfortable. It has a sense of fun in its decorations, but they are serious about your comfort. Alexia at the front desk was amazing: she gave us great ideas for dinner, provided directions to the beach (about 4 blocks away) and found extra pillows--all with a smile!

Just got back from our stay at Base Camp and wanted to write a review because we really loved this hotel. The place has great style and a really sweet staff. Our room was really fun and right next door to the casinos. They fed us a delicious breakfast in the morning and gave us tips on where to go adventure. This hotel is great for people who want to stay in style at an affordable rate!!! Thank you Base Camp for a fun Tahoe weekend.

Stayed 3 nights in March, '13. Cute place but on balance overhyped. No bathtub, bathroom floor is FREEZING, two pillows only on bed, uneven wireless service, no frig, very small room, ancient and loud wall heater, very marginal "breakfast." I expect a little more for $159 a night.
