Our stay was at the end of August for a surprise birthday trip. I had purchased a bottle of champagne and asked that it be placed in our room before arrival. Not only did they do that, they included the cutest card, chocolates and upgraded our room for free because they had availability I assume. The bier garden was cool... More

Awesome location, walking distance to everything! Clean, comfortable room, however could use an air conditioner! Open windows and a fan are just not enough on many summer nights. The beer garden is awesome! Great place to stay for great price, we will be back!

The amenities at this hotel are amazing. Love the beer garden with fire pits, live music, cornhole, ping pong, smores kits and free drinks! Only two recommendations...a/c units in the rooms and fresh fruit at breakfast (apples, bananas, etc)

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
