We came up to stay in Tahoe for a couple of days and were thoroughly impressed with the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. It was a 3 minute walk to the beach, a block to local dining and shopping and we were right across the street from the main casinos in town. We loved the bar and...

For being advertised as family friendly this place was full of safety hazards. No latch on door, no bath tub, no dresser, extension cord all over property, broken fire pit parts and Gas tank on ground for kids to play with, broken hot tub. Rude front desk staff (nicky). Terrible place to stay.

We went during the off-season so the gondola was closed.. We had a pet friendly room, on the ground floor, which was much nicer than we were expecting! It's a brand new hotel, and very well styled. Staff was friendly, and accommodating.

Great place & location! Just a walk away from The Lake & the main strip. I would've enjoyed my vacation in Lake Tahoe if only I DIDN'T catch the cold/flu when I was in Reno. SMH x 3. I need a redo.Ha!

Used "base camp" as well, "base camp" for a couple days of road cycling in Tahoe area. Great location, hip vibe, nice comfortable beds and large room. Bear in mind this a "vintage" motel that has had a hipster makeover. It is by no means luxe, but totally comfortable and fun. Staff was very helpful and friendly, would definetly recommend,...

It's centrally located so that's 👌! Love the modern chic decor all around. Good breakfast spread to start the day exploring and what's not to love in Tahoe! The only thing that I did not like was the the covered parking area was way too small.

I really loved the vibe of basecamp. Sitting by the fire and listening to talented live musicians is a great way to enjoy a beer at sunset. The beers were yummy, the staff was nice and the rooms were adorable! My one complaint is the bedsheets were too heavy for the temperature outside, causing me to overheat and then be...

Honestly wasn't what I expected, but actually fit the nature of our little trip in that we were hiking all day, and we loved the outdoorsy genre of the place. Service was excellent, beds comfy, minimalistic & fun decor. Great location for everything in Tahoe! Thanks for a great stay!!
