Basecamp South Lake Tahoe
Ranked #15 of 66 Hotels in South Lake Tahoe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 20, 2012

This place is awesome. The first thing that hits you is it's character. With old hiking equipment and survey tools it feels like an outpost for adventure. Bit it is modern and funny with clever quotes on the walls in different rooms.

The rooms themselves are fantastically well designed with bold colors and unique art work.

And the beds....OH MY GOD, they are so comfortable. I slept for nine hours without waking.

The hotel staff are as much fun as the hotel itself and are keen to help you with your stay as michas advise you in the numerous activities in the area.

I had the choice between hiking, mountain biking, paddle boarding, kayaking, a boat trip just to mention a few.

In short this place is very unique, warm, sociable, connected, and great value for money.

I will definitely be staying there again
