My husband and I stayed one night at this neat, retro hotel and loved it. We aren't even the target demographic (millennials), but we enjoyed it nonetheless. They have a great sitting area in the lobby where you can enjoy a refreshment (2 on tap!) either there or in any of the outdoor seating areas. They also have a nice...

I have stayed here a few times now and just love it. The decor is super cute and retro. Everything fun to do is within walking distance. The fire pits and lounge chairs are great for hanging out. They have s'more kits you can buy, which we have done but this last time we brought our own goodies and they...

Loved the beer garden, hot tub, fire places, and especially the room! The bed was comfy, decor was simple but hip, and the room was stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, anything we might need!

We have visited a dozen times or so. This was probably the worst visit. People running in halls late. Loud noises from nearby rooms. Ordered breakfast sandwich and they got it wrong twice (15 min each time just to make wrong). Will give it a chance again but not happy.

Loved the location, easy to find, adequate parking, easy walking to the casino to our event, loved the hot tub, fire pits, beer tap areas, awesome breakfast options, just a lot of great options you don't find anywhere else! If you don't want to stay in some smoke filled casino hotel, this is the most amazing place!

We stayed one night here before we left Lake Tahoe. The room was fun and interesting. My only complaint would be the layout was confusing (the front desk is aware and they were helpful). Breakfast in the "Basecamp" (what they call the breakfast area) was great through.

I love the outdoor areas and the brew pub is a great addition to the property. The rooms are fun and the beds and pillows are really comfy, which is extremely important to me. I am excited to check the place out once they have finished construction. The hotel is super dog-friendly, which is a huge plus for me!

Base Camp was a great ecological friendly hotel. Its décor is camping outdoors geek and is charming. There are two hot tubs, s'mores in the evening and an outdoor beer/music venue. It is walking distance to the shops and restaurants.
