We enjoyed our overnight stay and would stay here again if we are in the area. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated in a lodge motif. The bed was comfortable and especially liked the down alternative pillows. The hotel lobby was inviting and beer was available for purchase. The breakfast included juice, milk, coffee, tea, oatmeal, granola, waffles and...

From the outside appeared as a nice motel. Originally drove past and tried to find another hotel. Ended up coming back and we were so happy we did. The place is the most perfect rustic, modern, chic, hip hotel I have ever been to. Perfect for the younger, hip crowd. Staff was incredibly accomodating and welcoming. We had smores over...

We liked everything about this motel, especially the location a stone's throw from the lake. They also had nice wine at $5 a glass which could be enjoyed inside by the fire. Breakfast was good too and the folks at Reception very friendly.

My husband and I spent our wedding night and weekend at Basecamp Tahoe City and we really enjoyed it. Our room was cute and clean and quiet. We had a lovely view of the lake. The girl in the front office was so patient and helpful when we brought our 10 family members in for hot chocolate after our reception...

Cool theme idea and a fun place but very loud due to rooms overlooking a parking lot. Wish there was more distance between parking and rooms. You pay a resort fee but don't get anything for it, that's a shame. When they opened you got a free drink ticket but not anymore, another shame. Location is good, close to restaurants,...

The lounge are was really great and an awesome place to hang out. I will go back and recommend Basecamp. The housekeeping, however, did a very pour job and I felt...

This was a great find! Pretty good value for a nice and creative little boutique. Fun finishes and details throughout the facility with careful attention to detail. The lobby was a great communal space, nice to gather at night in front of the fire or in the morning for a quick breakfast. They served oatmeal, granola, waffles and toast for...

This is the perfect hotel for whatever brings you to Tahoe. The hotel rates are unbeatable considering the hotel features and quality. The hotel rooms are clean and the beds are super comfortable. The decks with fire pits were great for meeting new people in the evenings while roasting marshmallows for s'mores and also during the daytime for a little...
