    If you have heavy luggage, you have to haul it up the stairs. No elevator. Parking in the lot and the garage is cramped. Rooms do NOT have air-conditioning. WiFi does not work well in the morning, when everyone is still at the hotel. Great coffee shop and comfortable beds!

    No air conditioning!

    We are there in late June during summer heat. There is NO air conditioning at this hotel. Just a standing fan. So very hard to sleep. But grateful they let us check in early. Bet its nice during fall or winter though!

    Good for the money; if you want AC, call them

    Well maintained with the exception of the funny smell of one of the towels. Reception is nice enough to text you when the room is ready if you arrive early. Even with the hotel fully booked, they were able to ready the room 30min before check in time. There was live music in the pub in the backyard till 10pm. Local beers on tap were tasting fresh. The only hiccup was that I did not notice that the rooms were not standard with AC, so it was uncomfortable to sleep plus the bed seemed to be keeping too hot. Our friends were in a different room with AC.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Not for us. Maybe for hipsters that sleep cold.

    All in all was a bad stay. This may be great for young couples looking to party it up at the local brewery and with the Casino near but that does not out weigh how incredibly hot it is in your room since it has no AC. We had an active trip with hiking and the beach so coming back to a hot room was not fun. To sleep you have to keep the windows open to cool off which doesn’t really get cool enough until midnight and hopefully bugs don’t come in you room. By that time the music stops playing at the brewery. Also hopefully no one smokes below you otherwise you will need to breath in smoke as you sleep as we did for one of our nights.

    Carpet was dirty, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was recently updated. Price too expensive. Lots of noise outside.

    Loved our stay

    We were only able to stay one night and would like to return someday. Our room was clean, and comfortable. We were within a five minute walk to either the beach on Lake Tahoe or to the casinos and restaurants downtown. The ski area is also within walking distance. We also enjoyed the beer garden and live music at the microbrewery at Basecamp motel. The staff was friendly and helpful and we were able to communicate via text message to ask questions or checkout. Loved it.
