I'd prefer to go 3.5 stars if I could but I'll stick with 3 since the bad was...bad. The good: very chill environment. Close walking to anything in the area, including the gondola ride and casinos. Loved the motel 6 style, with the party going on in the middle. Really fun environment, great decor. Perfect for the event which was;... More

Great location by the casino's and stores. Room was very clean and the stuff was very friendly. Loved the beer garden and the outside sitting area, especially the airstream Trailer. Can't wait to stay at the hotel again!

I spent 2 nights at Basecamp hotel in South Lake Tahoe and absolutely love it. The hotel is located within a walkable distance from casinos, restaurants, Heavenly ski lift and the lake. Yet, it is tucked away from the main traffic. The hotel is newly renovated and chicly decorated. We stayed in a standard king room which has with a... More

We had a great time staying here. The location was perfect for walking to anything in the area. They were very knowledgeable about hiking in the area and any other activities. We also really enjoyed the live music on Saturday night. It was nice to have drinks and live entertainment right there in the hotel.

Nothing negative to say! Great hotel, great location, great service, very comfortable rooms, loved it here! TV service was a little spotty, but wasn't a deal breaker, and seemed consistent with the area anyway. Very fun getaway.

This is a modern boutique hotel with a lot of charm close to downtown South Lake. I enjoyed the fact that it was a walk away from ski runs, restaurants, shopping and casino fun. Staff was very informative and friendly. The place had several fire pits and a large jacuzzi to warm you up after a run on the snow... More

Wonderful place to stay. The gentleman at the front desk was very nice and friendly and explained all the extras they offered. Room was great for my wife and 2 boys. Our King bed was very comfortable and the boys had their own room with twin bunks. Decor was very nice, silly map was entertaining for the boys to read.... More

Great hotel. Right near state line and heavenly gondola village. Super clean and comfortable rooms. Great coffee in the morning. Only complaint is that rooms aren't very well insulated so it can get noisy at night.

Unfortunately, we only spent one night here, but it was great! Friendly and welcoming staff willing to answer questions and offer recommendations on where to go, comfortable room, great vibe (live music, delicious veggie-friendly breakfast, comfortable places to hang out both in and outdoors).

Great place. We stayed in a room with bunk beds and it was clean and comfortable. Only issue was the bunk beds were a little far over the Queen beds below so there were a few bumped heads. Good breakfast in the morning and short walk to the casinos and restaurants.
