A nice clean room - I had a king size bed which was very comfortable. Everyone associated with the motel was friendly and very helpful. The price was very reasonable and I thought it was quite a bargain - half what I would have paid at other places I looked at. When I arrived my room was warm - it... More

We needed a cheap room for a quick overnight stay in South Lake Tahoe. Apex was listed on booking.com and was $20 less than the neighboring Motel 6 so I booked a room. We found the room to be clean. There was fresh paint on the walls of our room and a recently renovated bathroom. The bed, however, was horrible.... More

I wanted to go away for Memorial Day weekend and I knew everyplace was expensive. What a surprise when I found this place right on Hwy 50. It's not fancy but it's nice for the price. There is a great Italian restaurant next door.

Beware of the Continental Breakfast- one of those packaged pastries you buy in a huge box at Costco. The hotel is really an old motor court with tiny rooms. The price was too high for such a tiny place and such weak breakfast.

Stayed here over the weekend. Arrived late with no problems checking in. WiFi available but was slow. Booked a 2 double-bed room which came with a small TV, microwave, mini-fridge, small table, and one chair. No problems with the heater. The room is supposed to fit upto 4 people, but felt it would be too small for 4 adults. The... More

Small but friendly, clean and neat. The Apex was a wonderful solution for our family vacation. Half of our family was camping at the Encore RV Park, but we didn't have camping equipment. We were able to stay at the Apex Inn and walk a very short distance (1/10 of a mile) to the campground. Best of all, our rooms... More
