Base camp is indeed different from the rest of the hotels in the south Lake Tahoe area. The place is friendly, cosy and unique. Price is great and they provide the shampoo, body wash n conditioner in the shower. Wifi is available, even hair dryer n hot water kettle. This hotel provides all the basics necessities required and the bed is cosy n nice. Breakfast is provided n coffee available all day in the lobby. Between 3-6 pm, happy hours for drinks n if you need a dip in the hot bath, there is a open air jacuzzi on the 2nd level above the lobby. Overall, the stay was awesome and the hotel is friendly n lovely.
