It was a great experience to stay at Basecamp. Everyone was super friendly, our room was super clean, we were located close to restaurants, shops and the casinos. We wish we could have stayed longer! The entertainment at Basecamp was great and there was plenty of parking space.

I have now stayed here twice since it opened. Basecamp is still a great value and has a nice charm to it. I love the beer garden, free breakfast and access to the private Lakeside Club beach. Staff is VERY friendly and accommodating. I will say that during this latest visit, the property was starting to show some wear and... More

Friendly and unpretentious. Seems like people are genuinely happy staying there and working there. I could not have asked for a better atmosphere or better people around. Even when just lounging it was an experience made better by everything and everyone there.

I've been going several times a year since they opened. We like it as it suits us well and is a nice upgrade from the surrounding hotels from time to time. That said, we've noticed some smaller issues start arising a little more each time we stay. Heater issues one time, lack of room amenities that are normally there, etc.... More

Super accommodating staff and very comfortable beds! Perfect location with adequate parking; I did miss having a bathtub though. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, the live music beer garden area is a nice touch. I would stay here again!

Returning again this weekend. BEST place to stay in South Shore for families/friends for that camping feeling. The staff is wonderful, friendly and always willing to accommodate the best they can. Amanda is perfect at the front desk.

Basecamp was a great place for our family get away. Relaxed, laid back & social best describe our experience. The s'mores & beer garden met both the kids & adult needs in the late afternoon. Live music fills the air all afternoon and into the evening. The downside: rooms do not have air conditioning. We had a room on a... More

This place is great! The hotel is so fun and has so much character! I loved every little detail in the room and the fire pits and live music in the evening was so fun! I will stay here anytime I am in the area visiting. Already looking forward to my next trip!

Didn't know what to expect here but had a great stay at Basecamp. Loved the access to the private beach. I'm not a beer drinker but my husband said the beer selection was great. But we both did have a fun time hanging out in the garden listening to music. My only slight complaint is that the pool is very... More
