Basecamp hotel is correct and nicely located but pricey for what you get. The sun room was closed during our entire stay and breakfast options were limited. Our room was clean but cold. The small heating unit wasn't sufficient and the bathroom floor was freezing.

I loved the atmosphere here! Our dogs and 1 year old son were very comfortable too! It was great that they had a pack 'n play so we didn't have to bring one with us. The lantern light in our room seemed to have a short in it (forgot to tell the front desk). Breakfast was a cute display but...

It's very rare to have an immaculate hotel room in Tahoe with a decent price. Very clean and up to date. Perfect location and great service. Love that they offer beer and smores! Nice touch. Breakfast was decent, could use a couple more options though.

Besides being in the heart of Tahoe City, the hotel has a great vibe, the staff was very nice and accommodating. Our room was clean and comfortable and we loved the morning breakfast spread, nothing like making your own waffles with a good cup of coffee!

The rooms are all updated and very clean. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Great location! We especially enjoyed happy hour with the great beers on tap. The sun room is cozy place to hang out too.

We got stuck in Tahoe due to road closures and had to last minute find a place to stay. The staff was beyond helpful and the rooms were excellent. Great place to stay if you are looking to go to Northstar, Squaw or Alpine

The nostalgia of an updated motel with nice touches and nice flourishes and all the modern conveniences, and a great location. Wonderful staff and a great breakfast to boot. A great value. We would return in a heartbeat.

We stayed in the Great Indoors Family Room and had a great time. The location is great, the breakfast was terrific, and the staff were extremely kind and helpful. My only complaints are about the location of the room (we were the first room you pass on the way out of the lobby/breakfast/lounge area so we heard a lot of...

I always enjoy my stay at Basecamp hotels. The location is right in the middle of Tahoe City, across the street from Safeway and CVS. Around ~20 minute drive to either Northstar or Squaw. The room was comfortable and clean. Too bad the hot tub wasn't available. It would have been nice for breakfast to include some fruit or savory...
