Recently visited the motel and was totally disgusted by the uncleanliness in the rooms. There wasn't even maid service or change of towels for 3 days. There was a dead scorpion which disintegrated when I went to pick it up (yeah how long was that there?!?!). The old A/C unit barely worked. Our friend's room had a used Kotex napkin... More

Rented a boat from them. That part went well we had a good time and the people in that part were pleasant to deal with. there was an issue with the charge and i called them about it. They were extremely rude hung up on me multiple times and screamed at me during those times.

We stayed there on June 3, 2015 for three days. We has a great stay there. The place is a bit antiquated but it's getting close to 50 years old. It's not like it's very easy to get supplies to the resort considering the roads one must travel to get there. If one is just a little open minded the... More

Rooms are terrible! Smell like cat urine and had mouse feces everywhere. Mice running in the ceiling at night....had to leave a light on to get them to stop. TV was some old busted TV I would only throw away with no remote. Got maid service once during my stay with towels that had blood stains! I wished I had... More

Beautiful area to camp, drive, go on their boat. The scenery is incredible. We saw a wild ram on our drive here along with some eagles. I can't imagine what else is out there. Plenty of parking and restrooms available if you want to just stop and look.

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
