juanhH6236FD, Thank you for talking to me several times during your one night stay with us. During your stay Lake Tahoe received record breaking snow fall from the blizzard that lasted several days, a power outage that lasted 30 hours and many road closures as a result. I know you wanted to head out early and get on your way...

Great boutique hotel with a very relaxed vibe. Cosy rooms and inviting public areas. Very close to all amenities, lake, shopping, ski hire, bus. Although should you need to use the public transport system e.g. for ski resorts, it's not great with a number of connections. Watch out for bears!

If you're looking to stay somewhere other than the major resorts, this is a great boutique hotel with nice perks like free breakfast, outdoor fire pits, and a cozy bar. It's also conveniently located across the street from the Lake, and on the same street as all of Tahoe City's center. Highly recommend if you're looking for an affordable stay...

Tahoe City was a great location for Christmas weekend. There were a couple restaurants open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Most within walking distance had it not been so cold! Breakfast was a nice addition!

Easy check-in, friendly, helpful staff, very clean. The desk staff was quiet warm and positive, knowledgeable, and helpful. We certainly recommend this to others. The room was clean and fresh. The beds could be better for one's back.

The beds were too soft for a good night sleep, but otherwise it was great. The staff is helpful, the location is right in Tahoe City, and the decor is attractive. I came here with my friends and daughters. It was a nice spot. For the price is was good value.

I stayed at the Basecamp hotel in Tahoe City while in town for work. I used this trip as a test for when I come up to Tahoe to ski. The hotel would be great for a ski weekend - it's simple but extremely cozy. Everyone was friendly. Good vibe.
