We loved it! The camping theme rooms were adorable. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the rooms were so quiet and clean. Loved the free breakfast of Belgium waffles! Kids loved the game room and making smores at night in the firepit. Loved staying here!

We have previously stayed at the BaseCamp in South Tahoe before which we thought it would carry the same service and complementary. However, for the price that we stayed at the BaseCamp city location, we were a bit disappointed as far as the services that they provided.

Staff was great and hotel was very cozy. Had a great time hanging around the fire at night and meeting some of the other guests. Convenient to be able to get beer and wine right in the lobby. Would stay again next time we go to Tahoe.

Like the hotel and vibe. Clean, well-designed rooms and lobby create the perfect environment for weekend explorers. Was really impressed with the GM and the staff in general. Really felt they went out of their way to make us and our kids feel comfortable. Thank you!
