Basecamp South Lake Tahoe
Ranked #15 of 65 Hotels in South Lake Tahoe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2017

The concept of the hotel is wonderful and the location is great, but little is done to make it a great stay. The grounds need to be kept up throughout the day and the hot tub area is lacking. It could be so much more if more seating was provided outside and some landscaping was completed.

Thank you for the fantastic review of your recent stay here at Basecamp! I am so glad you had a wonderful time and enjoyed your stay. We are currently looking at different options for landscaping and such but the harsh Winter did push that back. Thanks again for your kind words. I hope your travels bring you back this way soon!

Fun, clean, comfortable beds, I love the casual fun experience at Basecamp....a little too warm some of the rooms don't have great airflow. And let's get real...splurge on two ply would ya? Staff is always helpful and nice.

We had our wedding at Edgewood 7/7/17 and invited all of our guests to stay at Basecamp - for proximity to venue and Heavenly Village and Lake and also because we've stayed a couple times before and truly enjoyed ourselves. We held a Welcome Party for wedding guests on top of the bar and had an amazing time! Basecamp was really accommodating and we couldn't imagine having our guests stay anywhere else. They all loved their stay!!

Hotel rooms have a distinct smell to them. Comforter had what appeared to be a rather large blood mark on it. It was apparent that the comforters don't get washed after each guest. Otherwise great location & atmosphere.

I understand the camp theme, but those rooms need air conditioning in them. The fans just don't do justice. It makes it really uncomfortable to sleep or get any rest. Had many sleepless nights during our stay
