Stayed here 3 nights while enjoying a spring skiing trip with the family and our dog. Whole experience was very pleasant, the proximity of the lake, food choices and relative ease of getting to Squaw and Alpine made this place a definite favorite in our book!

The property is very modest, likely a recent upgrade of an old motel/hotel. However, the rooms have a great Tahoe ambiance, there are beautiful views of Lake Tahoe, a very convenient location in Tahoe City, and excellent service. The facility lacks a number of modern amenities, such as an exercise room, but it makes up for it in character.

Love the basecamp hotel family. Previously visited the Boulder hotel and stayed at North Lake. Great staff and accommodations. One thing that I wasn't crazy about was the breakfast as there was just toast, small packages of granola and waffles. But other than that its a great place to stay

Loved hanging out in the lobby with our dog, the staff, other guests, and a beer. The accessible king room had a lot of oddities like a shower that would flood the restroom and a lack of bathroom counter space but overall the decor and feel of the place is on point.

Well done rooms and nice vibe! I stayed in the South Lake Tahoe Basecamp for a few days and decided to head up north and try Basecamp Tahoe City too and am glad I did, very pleasant, great beds and nice decor.

This place could be amazing but isn't. Staff are nice but not warm and helpful, the main communal area could be so cool but is more like a morgue, towels aren't refreshed etc. So much potential not realised.

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Basecamp. The room was fresh, clean, and well decorated. Most importantly the staff was super helpful. I stayed in the winter and the parking area did have some ice issues - not a problem for cars but a problem when walking. Roof snow melt accumulates at entrances to lot and freezes at night. You have to...

Basecamp is a welcome new addition to Tahoe City. The renovations are superb! It's homey, comfortable, warm and just feels good. The new lobby is fantastic with a nice fireplace, sofas, breakfast and coffee, and even beer and wine. Get the apres ski package, it includes 2 cocktails and s'mores!

This is a great hotel in a super location to explore the Tahoe delights. The staff on check in were super nice and talked about the complimentary breakfast, decent range of beers in the lounge and fire pits - all of which were great. The room itself was basic, but really well designed with some cool touches. Functional and clean...
