Visited Lake Tahoe the last weekend of February to celebrate a friend's birthday, and stayed at Basecamp.
A classy, updated, boutique-motel, its reception area has a very warm, ski lodge/cabin vibe feel to it, which was perfect as the weather was pretty frigid. The manager was very friendly, and took time to actually hang out and talk to us when nobody was at the counter. The space is very conducive to socializing as well, with a long table and benches for eating, and two large couches facing each other for hanging out. There is also a small bar area where you can sit on stools and watch whatever game is on while having a beer. They include a continental breakfast with your stay which was perfect before hitting the slopes.
Rooms were great, with modern furniture and bathrooms. The decor was done very tastefully and matches the feel of the establishment well. We had a very comfortable stay. There is a hot-tub on the second floor which I did not get to check out, but hopefully next time.
Location. Can't say enough about this. Heavenly Village is literally a 5 minute walk across the street, as are Harrah's and Harvey's casinos. We didn't need to drive or take a taxi even once during our stay.
We had a great time here, and when I return to Tahoe I plan to stay here again.
