Some rooms had no air conditioner Breakfast had waffle, toast, oatmeal apples and oranges. Not much! Great place to kick back at night for music and drinks. Games to play were fun. A lot of chairs needed repair.

This is a great hotel (though not fancy) ideally situated in South Lake Tahoe - 10 minute walk from the lake and from Heavenly Village. They had great recommendations for what to do in Tahoe, a solid breakfast, and a nice beer garden with live music most of the day. The rooms were simple but felt clean and updated, and... More

Perfect place to stay in So. Lake Tahoe. Walking distance to all the action and food that Stateline has to offer. Not fancy but the rooms were good sized, quiet and clean and internet and breakfast were included in the price. Loved the live music, fire pit, and beer garden. Will happily recommend Basecamp to our friends & family.

It was clean. The room was nice. The air conditioner keep blowing the fuse so that was not good. They did not come to clean until 4:00. The breakfast is toast,waffles and granola. Nothe very many choices. Good location. Could walk to both the beach and the shops.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Basecamp. The beer garden was very convenient and the proximity to the concerts at Harvey's is awesome. Our room with a balcony was very comfortable and furnished in a style right up our alley.

We stayed at Basecamp on our way through South Lake and had a great time. The beer garden was a nice feature, and the live music and fire pits were a great touch. The hotel had a simple, low-key vibe that was a nice contrast to the mega-hotel/casinos and the little run-down family motels nearby. We will be coming back!

What a great place! We made this reservation without knowing anything about the hotel, and we'll go back! Fun theme, and I love how they added little touches like battery-operated lanterns and tiny igloo coolers for ice buckets (although they are so tiny you can't chill your beer in them). The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The room was... More
