We stayed at Basecamp South Lake Tahoe this past weekend and had a great time. Love the vibe and the fact that this place has character, not like your typical hotel. The workers were very nice and friendly. The waffles and homemade granola were also delicious for breakfast every morning. A few downfalls: Shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel installed in...

Wonderful location and great hotel. Best rooms in the South Lake Tahoe area But housekeeping service on Sunday after all the discharges was very late-5 PM and not helpful or appropriate. Would be much better if we had clean towels and beds made before 3 PM.

Thank you for your feedback on our housekeeping services. We do clean all the departures first to guarantee a 4PM check in time just like when you arrived your room was ready. We will circle through the middle of the day for regular services as well. Rooms must make sure the “Do not Disturb” sign is not put on in...

We loved our stay here! the beer garden was fun and had a great atmosphere, the rooms were cozy and clean. The rooftop hot tub was a nice plus! Walking distance to everything, perfect location. The only complaint was when someone kept calling about a noise complaint when we were perfectly quiet, and the staff didn't believe it wasn't us!...

Great food. The breakfast was really impressive. The staff were all very friendly. The lounge area was comfortable to spend time in. Great that they are dog friendly! Adorable design in the rooms. I couldn't quite figure out how the heater works though.

We frequently stay at Basecamp. It's a central spot to leave the car and walk to the Gondola to ski or restaurants to indulge. The staff is always friendly. Plus, it's dog friendly... which makes that spontaneous getaway feasible.

Awesome beer garden and breakfast. Live music was a bonus! Family friendly. Great location across from Heavenly. Bummer about no elevator up to the 3rd floor. Also room was not vacuumed prior to our arrival. Inconsistent housekeeping services.

If you want to sleep in a caved in bed with busted springs popping out this is the place for you. I guess if your not planning on sleeping this place might work for you. Also no refrigerator, microwave or coffee pot in room.

Thank you for your recent stay with us and your feedback. We have replaced our broken box springs. When we have guests jump from the top bunk to the lower bed at full force, the box spring loses. We are all set to go and box springs. Thank you for your business with and giving us a try. We hope...
