Recently visited the Apache Lake Resort. The rooms were average but the restaurant was unique and very friendly. The food was great and the staff were very courteous. The store provided basic needs. The lake outstanding for scenery. Even thugh we only spent one night the second night would have been free.

First and foremost....all the reviews on this property are correct!!! Both the good and the bad, as well as the middle ground reviews tell it like it is. We went to Apache Lake for the first time this last week. We had decided we wanted to fish the lake, but also stay at the hotel to clean up after a... More

I stayed with a Road Scholar hiking group. I would expect mattresses should be replaced when coils are at the top and poke you when you sleep. And there were no plugs for my bathtub or sink, nor could they find any! So pack your plugs or put a rock in a baggie. Food was mediocre but the Road Scholar... More

This is an old motel that has not been kept up. You get the basics room, bed, bath, skimpy towels. "Maid service" consists of someone coming by and throwing in some towels, hopefully clean. But it is the only place to stay in the beautiful area so just do not expect much and you can enjoy the incredible surroundings. The... More

We have wonderful memories of family bonding and growth♡ The lodging is a perfect for the setting. Majestic Mountains, surrounded by desert landscape, beautiful wildlife, and a large body of water. We grilled outside of the motel rooms and gathered our family of 3 generations to create memories along with life bonding friendships♡

Lake Apache is beautiful and it is so unfortunate that there aren't more lodging options. The motel is so dirty. Hands down the worst I've stayed in. The towels and all the linens in the place were stained and looked questionable. If I had to stay here again, I would bring my own bedding to lay on top. We asked... More

I am a bit confused after reading the previous reviews about Apache Lake! I have been going there for many years and love it every time!! Granted you will find critters being in the middle of a desert! Food in the restaurant is amazing.....service is exeptional! The lake is absolutely beautiful..... Great weekend getaway I give two thumbs and four... More

We stayed a week at the older kitchenette rooms. The rooms came with a stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker. I have to say that the rooms are older but what do you expect people. The staff were out of this world friendly. As for the trash, this was left by the people who visited the lake, so shame on you... More

This was our fourth stay in six years and the property continues to decline. Staff is friendly and helpful; but the physical plant is a disaster. Garbage and trash litter the entire property, pet feces are all around the walkways. Exterior and interior lights are burned out, the linens are old, stained and poorly cleaned. Windows are broken and covered... More

This place is terrible. The lake is beautiful, but it doesn't make up for this resort. The resort is so rundown it's depressing. If you go to the website under faq's it will give you some idea of the problems here. "Why is my room not in the best of shape?" "What are these stains on the carpet?" "Why are... More
