We were displaced because of the Kincade Fire. The staff was so warm and welcoming. They really made us feel safe and treated us to drinks and s'mores. Good people!

OK but not going back

The rooms are quite noisy. If you have kids stay away from the king bed rooms. They are right on top of the beer garden with daily livemusic.

Perfect boutique hotel for family snow play

Now that we're a family of five (the youngest being age 3), booking hotels usually means two rooms when we travel. We wanted to take the youngest to see her first snow, so Tahoe was the best choice especially after it got 5 feet over Christmas week. Can't tell you how much we loved Basecamp. We are definitely more the boutique hotel travelers even when we were kid less. So to have the same modern aesthetic and vibe was great. And even better we loved the "family" room which I expected would be small as it has two queens and two single bunks overhead. But so surprised at the large space for a room that sleeps 6. We loved the decor and modern design; bathrooms and all looked fairly new and updated. Beds were comfy; rooms super warm even while watching snow fall outside the wall-to-wall glass doors to the balcony. Then there's this great huge courtyard area next to the "Beer Garden" which had great food and beers (even a margarita for me) for parents; and kids got marshmallows on a long skewer to roast outside in the snow where two fire pits were going strong... Then made s'mores. The converted modern garage space with fireplace, flatscreen and ping pong table were great but kids just played in the snow filled courtyard. It was pretty ideal. The hotel is 8 minutes walking from the Heavenly Gondola and village resort where there's so much to do; not driving around was fabulous. There's also a large super market Raley's there, toy shop, Starbucks, ice skating and movie theatre

Surprise Stay DMB

Let's start off by saying the front desk staff was impeccable, everything was in detail about our stay and very polite when we had questions. The hotel is in a great location and not too expensive considering the area we were in. The hotel is in a great location, on the value was impeccable . The only downfall there's no air-conditioning during those hot summer days . Other than that will deathly be visiting the site for my next adventure up in Tahoe . Thanks to the staff at ba thanks to the staff at Basecamp
