Like most of the other reviewers here I agree that the location is great but that is it. It is way overpriced for what you get, the rooms are average, showers looks like they have seen better days and you dare not touch the tapestry behind the bed for fear of what it might contain!

We stayed at the Basecamp Hotel based on its location and reviews. The reviews are right on target this is a great place. Checking in was fast and no problem, the young lady checking us in was very helpful telling us how to get to where we wanted to go. The hotel is within walking distance of many shops and... More

We chose this hotel mainly for its location because we wanted to be able to walk to all the shops and restaurants we'd want to visit while in Boulder and it's very close. When we got there we were delighted by the cool vibe! Everything has an outdoorsy theme: some of the lights in the room were lanterns, the footstool... More

Service and room were top notch: Pros- We had an awesome time staying at the Basecamp Hotel in Boulder. From the moment we arrived, the service was amazing. When we arrived we were greeted quickly and pleasantly and got into our room in minutes. The room was clean and smelled nice. We didn't have an ice bucket (which was an... More

I don't often write negative reviews but I felt it necessary for this property. Service with the exception of one desk clerk was horrid. Rooms, at least ours, had a filthy rug, a small bath with a shower that hit me in the middle of the back and no hand soap at the sink when we checked in. High priced... More

I reserved the Basecamp Hotel because of price and not much was available in Boulder when I was booking hotels so I wasn't sure what I was going to get. I left feeling okay about the hotel but that's all. The good points- Rooms were clean, spacious and had extremely comfortable beds. Stuff I didn't get- the hotel was recently... More

After a lot of looking around I decided to take a chance on Basecamp. I'm happy I did. There is no Comfort Inn sign like some of the websites show. It's in a decent location and has a hipster feel. It's not perfect and was a bit expensive for what you get, but compared to the other More pricey options,... More

Admittedly I am a sucker for a well-appointed hotel and the Basecamp Boulder delivered just the vibe we were looking for to kick off our outdoorsy weekend in Colorado! The decor was adorbs, complete with a stainless steel cooler for an ottoman and a illustrated headboard over the Boulder area that was full of character. Also, the staff upon check... More

This hotel has unique decor (as mentioned in other reviews), but it is definitely overpriced. The room was small - no fridge or microwave - and it was several blocks from Pearl street. I also thought that breakfast was included, but it wasn't. We probably won't stay at this hotel again.

As many have mentioned, this hotel is in a convenient location and has a cute camp-style decor, reminiscent of old style camping. It is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. But the rooms are mostly small with small windows, absolutely no view of anything but a parking lot, and the prices are absurdly... More
