My new favorite place to stay in South Lake Tahoe!

Posted 25-Aug-2015
Pros: The rooms are decorated in a visually pleasing way that feels clean, yet still feels fun. The evening beer garden vibe with the firepits is fantastic.
Cons: We had a really loud neighbor who kept us up one night. Luckily, a complaint to Mike at the front desk resulted in that family being moved. Thank you!
Location: We walked everywhere while we were there. It's close to the lake, yet close to the Gondola and all the shopping Heavenly offers.
Got a chance to stay here for 50% off through Expedia, and jumped at the chance. I knew that the photos looked cool, but I had no idea what a great place this is until we arrived. What the owners have created is, truly, something special. From the location, to the "vibe," to the staff, to the beer garden, to the fire pits, to the Airstream trailer -- this was really, really fun. Is it the nicest place I've ever stayed? Not by a long shot. But in my mind it ranks highly as one of the most interesting, homey, comfortable, and enjoyable places I've ever stayed. There is nothing corporate about it. It's a hotel with personality. It made my vacation, and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Staff was so nice! We arrived early and asked for early check in, with early check in they also complimentary upgraded our room. Rooms were nice and spacious, the only complaint that I had was that since we went in the summer it was hot and the rooms don't have air conditioning so our room was up to 82°. Other wise great little place walking distance to the casinos and the beach with free beach pass access.

Excellent Hotel, Perfect Location

Posted 12-Aug-2015
Basecamp was awesome. It was located right at the state line, near the beach and casinos. There is a wonderful, local place a few steps away called Super Taco for dinner (but also many, many other places within walking distance). The best part of the hotel was the Beer Garden, which served breakfast in the mornings and cocktails at night. Don't miss roasting smores from the front desk over one of their many fire pits at night! Comfortable, sizable rooms, and the friendliest of staffs. Will definitely be back.

The hotel was comfortable. Bed was very nice. It is quaint, not the latest style but very satisfactory. Good meals.

Nice room, very good location, breakfast was poor

Posted 3-Aug-2015
Pros: The location was excellent. They provided a pass to the private beach at Lakeside Marina. Room is good for families.
Cons: The breakfast was extremely poor. They should not advertise a free breakfast given what was offered.
Location: Lakeside Marina offers all the water sports/rentals. The Harvey's bus center was across the street. Heavenly Tram is walking distance.
I spent a week in S Lake Tahoe with my 20yo daughter and 17yo son. The Base Camp Hotel was one of the few hotels that offered 3 real beds, and the rate was fair. The location was excellent; very close to Heavenly Village, Harvey's and Harrah's. Our only complaint was with the breakfast. They advertised a free breakfast, but they offered only waffles, oatmeal and oranges. They ran out of food before closing time. The waffle batter was pre-portioned, and was not enough to make a full waffle. There was no butter and syrup was in packets. They ran out of dishes, cups and silverware as well. As a result we ate out for breakfast, which increased the cost of our trip. But other than that, the hotel was fine. We aren't picky and didn't spend much time in the room.

Wonderful atmosphere and location... No A/C

Posted 21-Jul-2015
The staff and facility were awesome. The rooms were clean and the entire hotel atmosphere was great. The location was ideal for walking to shopping, dining, and attractions. The only downfall was the lack of A/C. We did not know when booking for the month of July that A/C was not in the rooms. However, a ceiling fan and stand fan were provided. Overall, the hotel was nice and convenient, it would be perfect for the fall/winter months!
