Basecamp is a motel converted into boutique lodging. The rooms are small, but well decorated and very clean (though our room did get hot at times as we visited in August and most rooms don't have AC). The lobby is very quaint/rustic and has a small bar the gets serves microbrews nightly. The staff is young, attentive, and very friendly. There are two gas fire pits for roasting marshmellows at night and premade smore packages available for a small fee. Overall the hotel was wonderful and is a nice change of pace from the busy casino strip, though only a block away from the action.
