A converted old motel close to the lake that has so much going for it. The room was smaller but modern with everything needed. Only concern would be carpet getting worn quickly in winter with snow being brought in. The selling point is the outside and common areas are first class with firepits, chairs and more. The lobby common area... More

Great location, great service, convenient parking, room was immaculate and nicely decorated. We enjoyed our stay in Tahoe City very much and especially the Base Camp experience. We have already recommended Base Camp to our friends and neighbors.

Fabulous service from the moment we arrived! Staff was very friendly and gave great recommendations for everything in the area. Rooms were stylish, quiet and very clean. Complimentary breakfast was way more than expected with waffles, granola, oatmeal, coffee, tea and more. Walking distance to pups and restaurants. Easy access to trails for hiking. Outstanding place and we will be... More

Some serious new life that has been breathed into this renovated motel (now called a hotel). Nicely appointed rooms with some local flair, especially appealing to a younger crowd, even though I am a senior citizen. Very friendly service at the front desk. One drawback -- the free (carb-heavy) continental breakfast could benefit from some fruit. Recommended.

I had to find a dog friendly place to stay after attempting the Tahoe rim trail. Basecamp was a very clean quality lodging to stay at. The staff was very accommodating and Basecamp is very dog friendly.

We've stayed here prior the renovation and new management. Awesome. They created a place worthy of the local, Basecamp exudes Tahoe in every sense. Walking distance to anything you could possible need for your excursion. Friendly and Gracious staff. Clean rooms and S'mores! If you need YouTube to help reinstall a derailed chain on your bike or complain that you... More

We stayed at Basecamp for three nights. The room was great - new and comfortable. The room had both a fan and aircon, which was very convenient, as the fan could silently cool the room during the night. The only thing we missed was a small fridge for water, etc. All staf members very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast. Nice... More
