Basecamp Tahoe City

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean, convenient, close to all the action and good price.

Nice hotel, amenities, and location. The only slightly downside was the mattress seemed a bit saggy.

Great place, updated rooms, friendly staff, contintental breakfast included and free wifi. Would definitely recommend!

Whoever did the photos for Orbitz website made it look a lot swankier than it was. Room was small (hardly any space besides two double beds). Complementary coffee, tea, and cocoa any time was nice. Free breakfast OK too. Evening desk clerk sure liked to complain about tourists!

Loved the attention to details in the rooms with the wool blankets, the interesting light fixtures, and wall hangings. Staff was really welcoming and nice and made sure we had everything we needed.

Nice breakfast - make them yourself waffles, oatmeal, cereal, bread. No protein. Very stylish and tasty. Comfortable room with a cabin feel. Wish they had a hot tub

The only reason to choose this hotel even the price is very high was the very high rating. But, I am not sure how they got that. There's no central heating system. Only a portable noisy heater was available. We had to turned it off at night since it too noisy, then, the room got too cold. House keeper "forgot" to replace clean towels the second day. i could choose American Best Value Inn or similar, which would cost me half price and I am sure I would get similar experience.

Staff was super nice ..loved the breakfasts in the lobby.. comfy place to stay right by the beach and all the restaurants and shops.

I stayed at base camp about a week after they opened. The placed had been completely remodeled from the old motel that used to be in that building. It was very cozy, quiet, and relaxing. There is a lake view from the parking lot. You can also walk to anything in Tahoe city. Great place, great stay!!
