Hotel's Favorite
Basecamp is my favorite, FAVORITE place to stay in South Lake. Hubby and I stayed 2 nights to see a concert at Harvey’s. Location couldn’t be better. You are literally across the street from the entrance to the concert venue. They have a sweet outdoor beer garden with corn hole, live music and local beers on tap. Room was super clean. I’ve stayed places where my feet were black from walking around barefoot. There was none of that here. I’m used to a super firm bed. The bed was a little soft which was a nice change. The pillows were perfection. The decor was adorable. Any place that has a super cute mini igloo cooler to transport your ice in is A+ in my book! Hubby and I ate at the coffee shop in the lobby for breakfast. I had instant oats; he had a potato bowl. Both were so yum and a perfect start to our day on the lake. Coffee was amazing. I almost don’t want to leave this review so no one else knows about this place but us! Stay here…. It’s an experience you won’t regret!

To Marshall, my fav guest services person ever (didn’t think I’d ever have one). Great soul, loves hospitality. Can feel it from every interaction that he’s amazing. Plus he’s got a huge puppy aptly named Dozer. Food recs, towels, blankets, extra late checkout since we got stranded in Reno due to unexpected heavy snow - extremely understanding and went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and safe. Give this man a raise now!!

Our stay was absolutely amazing! We were welcomed by Marshall at the front desk who was just the sweetest and put smiles to our faces. We had a really late check in and parking is first come first serve but he was willing to come out into the cold and help us find a spot. On top of that, he gave us little complementary chocolate and a tiny bottle of champagne to celebrate my wife's birthday. The room was cozy and warm when we walked in and everything was clean and organized. I would definitely take my girl back here again!

Basecamp is in the perfect location, easy for our family to walk to the restaurants and shops in Heavenly Village. Rooms were clean and well maintained. The rustic chic decor sets the tone well, and our room had a fireplace that we enjoyed. Marshall and Matt at the front desk were very friendly and accommodating, helping us to enjoy amenities on the property such as the hot tub, and roasting s’mores at the fire pit. This place has a great vibe, and would love to come here again in the future.

Second time staying at Basecamp South Lake Tahoe and it has been as enjoyable as the first. Rooms are clean and spacious. The bed is extremely comfortable. Locations is easy walking distance to the casinos and Heavenly Village. Marshall at the front desk was extremely helpful arranging our late check in and taking care of us during our stay.
