this place is in a beautiful setting, surrounded by mountains and the lake is awesome. we stayed there for 3 days at the apache lake resort, the motel rooms could use some up dating but they were clean,we rented a pontoon boat and explored the lake it is absolutely amazing with all the wildlife and caves and miles of Saguaro...

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

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
