Long time since my family was in tahoe but how great it was to pick this place. We were on our first ski weekend in a long time, and our friend told us to stay here. Rooms was great and very clean espically the bathrooms, and the sheets & pillows, were just like home. Room was warm & cozy and just far enough off the beaten path to get a great night's sleep. I can't say enough about the staff they were so kind & nice to us and we were treated just like family something you never see at other motels, they really made this place a place you want to stay at, unstead of some of the other motels in downtown south lake tahoe. We of course used tripadvisor before we made our 2 day reservation's like we always do when we our going away. I would recommend this place to all as this is one of the best places our family has ever stay at., we will be back again. Thank You

I really want to give this small family motel a great rating but it had one major problem that just won't allow it. The unit we stayed in was clean and smelled great, had a good bed, plenty of hot water and seemed more like a guest bedroom than a motel room, for the price it seemed a fabulous deal, however.......paper thin walls allowed the conversations and television from the next room to flow freely into ours. We stayed in a unit toward the end of the building next to the stairs.....ahhhhh, those staying upstairs stomped up and down the wooden stairs and in the units upstairs, the noise was enough to drive you nuts. Unfortunately, the Inn was booked solid and there wasn't another room to get switched to, the office did ask the upstairs occupants to please be considerate of downstairs, but it just didn't work. It did quiet down a little after midnight, but started up at 6am with everyone trying to get out to the slopes. Soundproofing the walls and ceilings and double pane windows might help with this problem. Granted it is snowtime at Tahoe and it was Saturday night, but I just didn't think it should have been this noisy.

Stayed January 2007

Loved this place. We goto Tahoe regularly and have had our share of bad expensive rooms. We found this place by driving by and we were so pleased! The rooms are small, but absolutely clean and charming. The family running the hotel was nice, and let us see a room before renting even though it was late at night. I would highly recommend this place for a clean, inexpensive and charming place to stay!

The Apex was wonderful. Kind of retro, but smelled so good inside and out (there is an Italian restaurant next door that cooks with a lot of garlic!). The sheets were silky. Bathroom very clean and well appointed. Opened a drawer to find an extra pillow and blanket...you don't often see this feature these days. The desk clerk came down and put the wall furnace on for us (a nice touch).

The Apex Inn is a nice family hotel that is close to downtown South Lake Tahoe but is far enough away to make you feel that you are away from it all. The rooms are clean, comfortable and most importantly equipped with their own coffeemakers. The price is fantastic for the quality of the motel. The staff is friendly and the owner always makes me feel like we are coming home when we are vacationing in Tahoe. I highly recommend this place.
