Great hotel, rooms are on the small size but done in a very cool unique way that my wife and I still loved our room. It also has a cool hangout spot where you can listen to live bands, purchase food and beer and just hang out. Overall, we really enjoyed our time at Basecamp.

Only problem was parking - very limited, and it was hard to back out of a covered one-way parking structure. I would also say that walking around the property could be challenging for older folks due to uneven surfaces. The beer garden was nice, food was great, live music so-so. Overall, I'd stay here again! Very nice staff.

This place was a pit stop for us on the way to Yosemite. Jade greeted us at the desk. Made us feel welcome and explained everything to us. It was a perfect place to stop and get a goodnight sleep, get refresh for the next day long day road trip.
