    Property condition

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities


    The place is undergoing renovations. There was dust, dirt and trash throughout the property. The room was also very dusty. Cute furnishings, nice staff, good hot breakfast and good coffee.

    • Disliked: Staff & service

    We enjoyed the concept of the property ...But their social media promotion of unlimited breakfast waffles as well as their rooftop hot tub isn't real. There were no waffles on offer at all during our stay and their rooftop hot tub is out of service/in construction for some time. When we asked the reception and then the manager about this they looked and spoke to us as if we were had 3 heads. Didn't leave us with a good feeling. We ate breakfast elsewhere and didn't enjoy any hot tub relaxation during our stay.

    This is such a wonderful and family friendly place. Such an easy place to get to and the staff is super friendly. Walking distance to the heavenly plaza. The hot cocoa bar was so fun and the fire place both inside and outside was so comfy.

    another enjoyable stay at Basecamp South

    I have stayed at Basecamp South Lake Tahoe 4 times over the past 3 years (3x in the winter, 1x in the summer). There is a nice taproom on site (also where Breakfast is served in the morning), the large in-ground hot tub was great, but the upstairs deck hot tub was out of order. Check-in was a breeze, and the room was comfortable and clean. I will continue to stay here when in the area & the rate is comparable to other hotel options.
