What a cute hotel! Loved the touches! The room decor was authentic, even bought the postcards to take home, the airstream/fire pit/beer garden was a nice touch. Made s'mores by the fire with the dogs! Loved that the entire property was dog friendly! And the location can't be beat! Close to the beach the casinos and walking distance to the...

My lady and myself frequent this particular hotel at the very least, twice a year. We just spent her birthday here this last weekend, and I spent my last birthday at Basecamp in 2015. We came here originally to house the groomsmen for my cousin's wedding. We also came for our anniversary just back in September. With that being said,...

This is a favorite hotel of mine. I have stayed here a few times and have never found anything bad about it. This was the first time staying with my dog in one of the dog friendly rooms and it was just as clean as the other non dog friendly rooms that I've stayed in. Everyone that I've ever encountered...

We have stayed at Base Camp a few times with the family and really couldn't ask for anything more. The room setup is excellent (we got the queens with bunk beds). The beer garden is great for us and the kids, and they are always talking about the smores during and after we leave :) It's in a great location...

I had arrived at Basecamp under the impression I was going to be staying in the Great Indoor room for the 2 nights I had booked. I had booked incorrectly after being advised by a staff member that I had the right booking online. I was very disappointed as it was my fiancee's birthday. Reading the disappointment on my face,...

We have stayed here every season since it's opening and it never disappoints! They just keep adding more and more awesome features. Can't wait to return in a couple weeks. Great place for both family and friends.

I love the theme of this hotel and the style is very outdoorsy and cute. It's nice to have a mid-range hotel with rooms suited for larger groups as well. The room was clean with the exception of the shower. The floor of the shower was brown enough for me to wear sandals inside. I didn't like that the ladies...

I'd been wanting to stay at Basecamp since my last few trips to Tahoe. I'd been to their beer garden and loved the vibe, food and location. We'd only stayed at the podunk inns and lodges nearby, which are generally pretty gross but fine for an overnight to ski. This was a step up, for sure. I had pretty high...
