Cute place - very comfortable.

Posted 1-Jun-2017
Could use some better signage to find your way around the place,but very cute and live music in the courtyard at night with campfires. Close walk to the stores and restaurants- right in the heart of town. And across the street from casinos if that's what you like.

Basecamp is a nightmare

Posted 29-May-2017
I have stayed here before,and between $80-150 this hotel is reasonably priced. I chose to stay here @$229 a night and my mistake began the moment I booked,there were other options at that price point with better amenities but I liked the "vibe" and style of the hotel from previous experiences. Let's begin with the problems at hand in order. We had a "deluxe " room with a fireplace and got a room with no fireplace. The room smelled liked wet moldy clothes when we entered. We tried to speak to the front desk agent, we asked for a new room but we're informed there were not any other rooms available and that this was what we had reserved. No apologies were made ,there was no attempt to fix it later and no follow up at all the next morning. We spoke to the young blonde lady at the front desk the next afternoon​ and we were told there was nothing she could do. That they were over booked. (Even do hotels tonight and Expedia kept listing rooms available) this was a very disappointing, it felt like she didn't even try. Over all the staff seems to suffer from some sort of "I am too cool to talk to you because I work here attitude" and the only helpful person was the front desk manager the day we checked out.She was kind to inform me she couldn't do anything but she felt sorry about our experience.This is by far unacceptable considering the many options available within the south lake Tahoe region let alone the Tahoe basin. other issues, there was no phone,bad wifi,

Noisy wall heater ruined everything

Posted 18-Apr-2017
My bf and I were on a weekend ski trip and chose to stay at this hotel for its great location and reasonable price. The room was clean and bed was super comfortable. Everything looked just perfect until we found out how annoying the wall heater really was. It was LOUD when the air kept blowing out of it, which was one thing we had to deal with since the room was pretty cold. That's not the worst part however, the nightmare happened when we turned it off in the midnight. This old machine somehow started to produce a sharp humming sound and would not stop. It was worse than any humming sound I have heard and was literally driving me crazy. We tried to call the front desk, but nobody answered the phone 4am in the morning. At last we decided to turn it on again, even though the room was hot and dry but that was still better than being tortured by another few hours. I am a light sleeper and hate this kind of noise, but even my boyfriend, who sleeps like a log every time taking an airplane, found it unbearable. Not sure if it was just our room or it was common in all the rooms of this hotel, but I guess I will never come back here.

After a delayed 12 hour car ride, we checked in at 9 pm the reservation was incorrect. They accommodated us with a king bed room which didn't quite fit 5 of us. It was the only room available so I was thankful to have it. The next day I spoke to the manager and they compensated us for the inconvenience. Our real room was great and the kids thought it was awesome. Breakfast was included which was a plus. Overall we enjoyed the place and would stay again
