This place was very affordable and met all my needs while in Tahoe. I really enjoyed their coffee shop, Trailfolk Coffee Co., healthy breakfast options and fresh juices. Yes, please. I would stay here again.

Overall, awesome hotel. I would give it 3/5 stars for these things..... property looks as if it started out awesome but has not been kept up well. The grounds were kind of run down and not super cleaned up. Dusty, looked like it was awesome when it first opened but no one had done anything to improve it since. Neither hot tub was working which was disappointing. S'more/fire areas were not offered as advertised. Housekeeping took 45 minutes to bring us fresh towels. Loved the atmosphere and the overall vibe, it just needs a little refresh.

The property was very nice overall. My two main complaints are: even though there are two hot tubs on property, neither one was functioning during our visit which was a bummer and our room did not have enough outlets. I use medical equipment and one side of the bed had NO outlets, no nightstand, so we had to figure out a work around. Orher than those two things everything was great.

Basecamp has everything you want in a simple hotel. It has adorable mountain hiker decor, a hip (but comfortable) vintage vibe, two connected cafes, games, live music. What more could you ask for?

I loved the location and the vibe of the property. Live music, brewpub, outdoor seating... very fun. What I didn't know when I booked was that not every room had AC and it didn't occur to me to check! I checked out after one night of my three night stay and moved to a hotel with AC.
