I enjoyed my stay at Basecamp. My room was very clean and staff were friendly. The hotel was close to the conference center for work and right across the street from a nice hiking trail. If I had more time I would have loved to try the hiking trail. I would certainly stay there again.

Good Value, Great Location, Perfect for a quick skiing trip....The rooms were just what one needed, a comfortable bed, decent shower and a tv......Dont need much else when you are out skiing all day and you just want a comfortable place to lay down and recharge for the next day.

Cute little hotel in the strip in Tahoe City with tons of nearby restaurants. Room was comfortable with a great bed and the common room was a great meeting spot. Leave the "don't clean my sheets and towels" card out for cleaning staff and they give you a token for a free drink in the common room (save up a...

Overall very good experience! Would have preferred a better quality mattress. Dispensers for toiletries should be filled regularly. Fortunately we carried our own, but body wash was empty on both days.

We had a wonderful stay at Basecamp. The rooms were decorated nicely and the beds were comfortable. The two common areas were fun for the kids and the beers on tap were great for the parents. Breakfast was nice too. Kids loved the waffles! Service was great too!

We were out skiing all day and came back to find our room no made. Both Thursday and Friday. We spoke with reception and they gave us two towels. Unfortunately it was a let down. We had stayed here previously and loved the place.

Just stayed here last night. We really liked it. Very casual vibe. It's an older hotel but the rooms have been redone with fun creative touches. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very clean We were surprised by the breakfast that was included. Nothing too fancy but it was nice to...

We stayed in a nice king room at the top of the parking lot after being accommodated for an early check in during a busy weekend. We had a beautiful view of the lake. The only obstruction was the torn up canvas surrounding the disregarded swimming pool, which I'm sure will be addressed as the weather starts to warm up....

What a great find! Relying on comments from prior customers, I booked on-line with little in the way of expectations. When I pulled up, I was a little leery of what looked like a not-brand-new motel. Walking in the front door I was immediately charmed by the way the lobby was put together, their selection of craft beers, and, most...

Marketing as something you are not is misleading and instantly made me concerned. Room was hip and clean, free wifi, a very simple breakfast, good beers, fire pits. No hot tub. Dogs welcome. Good location.
