6.2 Okay
Pros:The room looked nice and had a balcony you could sit out on. If I came back here, I would come in Summer.
Cons:There was trash from the previous occupant in the room. Although the hotel is expensive, they still put me in a room where they are doing active construction and painting with fumes. Most of their communal areas are outside, which isn’t suited well to winter.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The whole stay was great from the start. The staff was very welcoming, and Baseline was such a unique experience from beginning to end. The location was walking distance to everything we wanted to do, and we absolutely loved our experience. Highly recommend!!!
Cons:The only thing we didn't particularly enjoy was the thin walls in between the rooms, and the quality of the TV. But those were minuscule issues, we loved our experience.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great place with very friendly people. Hipster ambience is created by cool style and design. Aesthetically it's a very pleasant place, not every Taho vacation has to be in an old cabin with a lot of orange wood and musty smell (if you know what I'm talking about). Hip and young place with make-your-own waffle breakfast and smores kits available for $2 at the reception (I've been doing those every night!!).
Cons:Parking lot is a bit tight. No decaf coffee for breakfast.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Basecamp has succeeded in facilitating a communal, hostel-like vibe while maintaining a higher-end boutique hotel, something that I've never encountered at other hotels like this. The hamburger and bratwurst grill in Basecamp's grassy courtyard were much needed after a long summer day at the lake. I'd definitely come back again.
Cons:The picnic benches in the courtyard are sketchy. Mine was super wobbly but I was sober so I never took a spill. Though, my friends and I watched several people who may have had a few too many flip off their benches while sitting around the fire pit. I'd just suggest the staff replace these benches before someone gets litigious on Basecamp!
5.7 Passable
Pros:The remodel of this hotel was superbly done, the rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were super comfy. The outdoor lawn with fire pits, hot tub and open air bar was great after a long day of hiking.
Cons:The staff was clueless. My husband and I asked for a place to get breakfast sandwiches before setting out on a day hike and we were recommended a 21 and over strip club, at 8 am!! They left messes laying around for days at a time, literally (there was a concert across the street at one of the casinos and the after math of beer bottles, food containers and other debris on one of the hotel patios was left uncleaned for almost two days!) we even asked a staff member about the mess because we wanted to enjoy the view from the patio and he just laughed and said "yeah, they really made a mess huh."
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everything about this hotel is great. No detail is missed. Great price and great experience. Can't bet the location either.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Rooms are design, clean and confortable. Staff is wonderful, dynamic, helpful. Ecologic style. Very good breakfast, homemade style, with not too much food: super !
Cons:No coffee maker in the room.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Love, love, love this place! Very clean and no usual hotel vibe. I wish my apartment was that great. Nice wooden accents throughout the room. They did a great job updating the place. The staff is super responsive and willing to help and there's someone at the front desk 24/7 Everything felt and looked like they really care and want to provide the best possible experience Big windows that open! So it's easy to air out the room. Comfortable beds Free s'more kits. So you can jump into the hot tub on the roof and then enjoy some s'mores by the fire pit Free 24 hr very good coffee Nice continental breakfast with yoghurt, granola, blueberries, bagels, cream cheese and pastries Mostly younger friendly crowd and families with kids We loved it so much that we stayed an extra night on top of the three nights we already booked. And they matched the initial price of Great price for the room, considering other hotels around. It was off season though
Cons:Could use more storage space/hangers in the room as well as in the bathroom Pillows were not very comfortable Bathroom and shower are a little cramped Some guests smoked right in front of the rooms and no one was keeping tabs on that There's no refrigerator or microwave in any of the rooms. For families traveling with small children that's a big deal. Though, the staff was nice enough to let us store food in their fridge
8.3 Great
Pros:room cute, clean. Lots of pillows.
Cons:No elevator!!! I had to climb two flights with heavy bags and two bikes. Staff were somewhat indifferent. No AC. No TV channel guide.
