We had a great 3-day stay at the Apex Inn. John and Mary were the nicest folks you could meet. Although the outside of the building is undergoing renovations, the inside has been remodeled and the rooms are immaculate. John and Mary take every precaution concerning COVID so we felt very comfortable. The Apex Inn is highly recommended.

I'm extremely happy with our choice to stay at the Apex Inn for our weekend getaway. Not too far out of town and it was nice and quiet. The rooms are new, modern, fun, and very clean. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. And the breakfasts would rival any fine dining experience. We were very comfortable here.

My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at the Apex Inn! The inn is located 5 minutes from the downtown Watkins Glen area, making it the perfect place to stay if you’re going to the state park, or the wineries around Seneca Lake. This was out first time staying at a bed & breakfast, and our stay absolutely exceeded our expectations. Mary and John are remarkably kind and beyond accommodating. The inn is impeccably clean, and the rooms are up to date and have everything you need. Snacks and water are also left in the room, and they’re replenished daily. Mary is also a great cook, and her breakfast menu could easily compete with any restaurant. I would highly recommend staying here, if you’re visiting the Watkins Glen area!

The rooms look like they are brand new - everything is clean and in great shape. We went during COVID (October 2020) and they did a fantastic job with breakfast - served in our room to order! We felt very safe and had no concerns about COVID. Located near the race track, it was only a few minute drive to downtown. Mary recommended several restaurants and we went to the Thai Elephant - really good food (and also BYOB which made it very reasonable). Not a quaint building but still a great place to stay.
