  1. Skyrun Vacation Rentals Saves the Day

     (4 / 5)

    Our family of four spent Family Day weekend at Apex Mountain I . The suite was great. Kids had their own mini hotel room and my husband and I had the kitchenette side complete with wall bed (easy to bring down and take up), electric fireplace that added ambiance but no real heat and all the things to make meals. We partied with a group of friends in the ‘games room’ on the lower level, played hockey on the outdoor rink and skied, snowboarded and hiked. When we left our snowboard behind in error, the staff of the hotel coordinated efforts with SkyRun Vacation Rentals and returned our property back to us promptly and in good condition. Thank you SkyRun and Apex Mountain Resorts.

  2. Very tired and over priced

     (3 / 5)

    My husband and I stayed for three nights this month so I could ski. The beds were doubles, not queens and not suitable for us both to sleep in together as the mattresses were so worn we were likely to get extreme roll together. The fitted sheet walls were also not long enough to cover the mattress so kept riding up resulting in bunched uncomfortable sheets and underlay. The room also had a terrible smell for the first day as it had obviously not been opened for a while. The cost was far too much given how outdated everything was; in contrast we stayed at Sun Peaks Grand for a slightly lower price and a far superior room. The accommodation website was also very unhelpful with no photos of the accommodation provided. We should have booked one of the air BNB rooms / condos instead. In contrast Tammy, the lady we dealt with was very nice and helpful and to be fair we didn’t raise any of these concerns with her.

  3. Decent place to stay if you're here for the skiing

     (3 / 5)

    The location is great with very easy access to the ski runs. This is definitely ski in/ski out. There is a room downstairs to lock up your skis and they rent out locks for free. The hotel room we stayed in was the murphy bed with kitchen. The tv was quite basic – no dvd player no cable menu. The kitchen was workable. The wifi was not reliable. Perhaps because it was our unit was at the end of the hallway but it was not useful for anything other than texting. nThe place seemed clean to us. The kitchen was missing a pot and some soap for the dishwasher. The staff seemed overworked and there seem to be so few of them. I almost felt bad asking them to do stuff for me. nThere is no nightlife here to speak of so hopefully you came prepared to entertain yourselves. Unlike others we had no problems sleeping on the murphy bed. Maybe we were exhausted from the skiing.nI’d be back again because it was cheap and the location was good. I think as long as your expectations are set properly, you’ll enjoy it too.

  4. Go for the snow!

     (3 / 5)

    Situated literally right beside the slopes (walk out the door, put on your skis and literally just head to the lifts), the i ‘s location can’t get any better for a true ski in/ski out experience! Two outdoor hot tubs that can accommodate 8 people each feels wonderful after a day on the slopes! The village and ticketing office is also right at your doorstep, less than a minute’s walk. Staying on a third or fourth floor suite in the back allows you to watch people ski by you just several feet away from your window (without it feeling like a privacy invasion). We also liked the fact that you could store your gear in the room with you. We booked a family suite, which was actually two adjoining rooms (two queens and one murphy bed, with two washrooms and a kitchenette). The beds were not the most comfortable for sure, given you could almost feel the springs when you lay down. The room, and the i itself, is very 80’s-esque and could use an update for sure. Having said that though, our room was quite clean and we had no complaints about that. Usual toiletries such as shower gel, shampoo, lotion and makeup remover wipes were provided. The kitchenette was also one of the better equipped kitchenettes we’ve had in a hotel/suite. It had a 4 burner stove, oven, microwave, cups, wine glasses, eating and cooking utensils (can opener, ladles etc) and a medium sized fridge which was perfect for our 2 night stay. (We find most kitchenettes usually have limited utensils and only a mini fridge for storing food.) Also, if using the kitchenette, make sure to bring things such as cooking oil, salt etc as those were not provided (and we find they usually aren’t at other hotels anyway). Make sure to bring all the food you need, as the village only has a general store that sells groceries, and even then, it is extremely limited (some sausages, ground meat, frozen di ers, frozen pizzas, some ca ed goods, cereals, etc). As others have said, the staffing at the i seems sparse, but we weren’t totally surprised given we were in the boonies and there’s nothing else out there for another minimum 45 minutes. Having said that, we always had no issues contacting someone at the desk, and were helped promptly when we needed it. Just make sure you have a cell phone with you to do so! Everyone at Apex, including the front desk staff and even the mountain hosts, and people at the ticket office were very friendly. The only odd thing was having to take the garbage downstairs yourself. I know some b&b’s have rules like that, but just found it a bit odd at an i . You could have them do it for a $25 fee, but it was not a big deal to us so we just did it ourselves. Also, there is no daily housekeeping, which also didn’t bother us as we usually re-use our towels anyway, but it may bother some others. Again, there is an extra fee you could pay if that is something you would like. Overall, the I is a decent, clean place to stay when heading for a weekend or so at Apex! It is a no frills, nothing fancy or luxurious i , and it’s not trying to be anything more than that either. If you stay here, you’re staying here just to be right by the mountain (literally). nFor a review of the mountain itself, see my review of the Apex Mountain Resort.

  5. Convenient and Useful

     (3 / 5)

    A friend and I went to Apex for a three-night ski getaway. This hotel is the only hotel I could find that was economical for two people. We stayed in a ‘Murphy Bed’ room with a kitchenette. The plus side was that there was a nice kitchen that was useful for us to cook our own meals. The hotel is also right beside the ski hill, so it was very convenient. The down side was that the hotel is pretty mediocre in appearance and the room was a bit dirty. For example, there was significant dust under the light over the kitchen table, the dishes had to be re-washed because some still had food residue from the last guests. Finally, the bed was not the most comfortable (I should have guessed that though – it is a murphy bed after all) Like I said, it was fine, but not worth more than $100 a night. Unfortunately, it might be your only option.

  6. Apex Lodge

     (5 / 5)

    This review is for the Apex Lodge, which is about 50 steps from Apex Mountain I . Brand new Reno in the Lodge. Queen bed and bunk beds around the corner, so privacy for everyone. Nice pull out queen couch, although would be busy with 6 people. New everything, including bathroom and super comfy beds. TV swivels, so you can watch from anywhere in room. All this for $129 on weekdays. Better rates than the I and so fresh with the Reno. We easily managed a simple breakfast and lunch with fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Really good storage for food and clothes. Soooo clean and great value! We will be back next year.

  7. Great location! Not enough staff.

     (3 / 5)

    Apex Mountain I is located right at Apex Mountain Resort. Step out the door into a winter wonderland of skiing, boarding, skating, tubing, snowshoeing, hiking and cross country skiing. Awesome restaurant and bar is seconds away (The Gunbarrel Saloon and Restaurant), as well as casual eating venues and small general store. The I is clean and comfortable and the staff, when we could find them, were friendly and helpful. The biggest issue was lack of staffing. We stayed at this I at the same time last year and had no problems. However, this year we were told at check-in that there was no housekeeping as the staff were on holiday hours. For three days straight I did not see a single person at the reception desk though we came and went often throughout the day. The sign on reception said staff were available from 8-10 am (I was there at 9:30 one morning and there was no one there) and gave a number to call at other times. We called the number and the reception desk phone rang, which is kind of useless if there is no one there. Our garbages were overflowing, we ran out of tissues, etc. and could find no one to ask for more. I think the staff that were there had their hands full and were doing their very best but they were understaffed! I think it is bad business to tell customers that because it is ‘high season’ you have to charge premium prices, yet you do not feel high season warrants providing basic hotel services for those premium prices.

  8. $255 per night and no housekeeping service

     (3 / 5)

    We have stayed at this hotel previously and had mixed experiences. The latest one was not a good one. We booked 4 nights, through the Apex Mountain I website, for the week of Dec. 20, 2016. On arrival we were told that due to the holiday season starting that day, there would be no housekeeping service. This seems a tad strange as the Christmas Holiday season at a ski hill would be the busiest time for skiing due to the holidays. Rates for the week we were staying were about $255 per night compared to $135 a night for the week proceeding or $99 a night for the week of January 9th, following the holiday season. I had expected the increase in room cost due to the holidays, but would have booked elsewhere knowing that there would have been no housekeeping services, ( no fresh towels, or toiletries, no new cups, or bed linens, and no garbage removal. There were large garbage bins in the lobby where guests could bring down their garbage. These were not in place until almost the last day of our stay. ). The beds looked to be the original mattresses of when the i first opened. Uncomfortable to say the least.nThere was no information in the room as to amenities, or resort activities or information, etc.nThe heating in room was poor. It was fortunate to have brought a couple of sleeping bags to keep warm at night.

  9. Great Location, Good staff, Building needs some Tender Loving Care

     (3 / 5)

    The location is amazing for the ski hill. Apex Mountain I is by far the best on mountain location for accommodation. The place could use an upgrade. With that said, you come to Apex for Amazing Snow, Awesome terrain, and a challenging ski hill that is never busy. The Apex Mountain I is a clean hotel that provides beds so you can be well rested for a fun day of skiing/riding. If you want to be pampered and live in the lap of luxury, go stay in Whistler, spend twice the money in accommodation, and wait in lift lines for half the day. For the condition of the hotel, the price seems a bit steep but it is the only full service hotel where you walk 5 steps from the entrance and you are ready to go skiing so you are paying for location location location! Ski locker is conveniently located for quick access to the chair. Hotel is within 3 minute walking distance of all food facilities on hill and about 5-10 minute walk to the really cool little skating loop. Definitely go check out the skating loop for an hour or so after skiing.
