“Great place for a weekend getaway.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

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.

This was one of the best Budget hotels I have ever stayed at, anywhere. I am a travel writter so I have a lot to compare. The reception staff was nice, the room was clean, smelled good, everything worked. The have in roon coffee maker and fridge. The best thing after the good rate is... they plough the snow out of the parking lot and provide you with brushes to get your car out after a snowy night. The room's size could be classified as cozy. This is exactly what you need if you are skiing during the day and need a place to sleep, that is pleasant, clean, quiet and affordable!

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 bathroom was small, had only a small shower stall (no bathtub); the inn provided shampoo packets, lotion packets and facial soap. Other reviews had mentioned thin walls, but it's hard to tell since no one was staying in the room next to us or below us. Overall, it's a very basic inn with a convenient location.

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 had AC, so in the evenings, we could get away and cool off. Next door to a wonderful Italian place and across the street from the best pizza I've ever had.
