The room had all the amenities - big jetted tub, walk-in glass shower, gas fireplace. But everything was in as small a room as possible. Typical of Tahoe or Reno. No micro wave, ice machine is located at Heavenly Hotel and a/c was not enough. But this being an adult-only hotel, it was very quiet which is sometimes priceless! I... More

This hotel is located just down the street from the beach (which we didn't visit...), and pretty close to shops for coffee, sandwiches, and groceries. There are lots of dinner restaurants nearby, and it didn't take us very long to drive to Camp Richardson from the hotel. The front desk staff were friendly, and we really enjoyed the free cookies...

I bought a two night special via Groupon in the Tahoe Suite for my husband's birthday. It was early June and the weather was perfect! Warm days and cool nights and an awesome room to reconnect in! He loved the jacuzzi tub and I loved the huge walk in shower! We watched two movies from their DVR library which we... More

The room is well decorated, and the picture of it is accurate, but is just too small for a whirlpool tub and a shower. (I believe it was a Tahoe Suite.) Any motel room needs at least a chair, and nightstands large enough to hold electronics, glasses, etc. We only stayed one night but there was not much room for... More

We showed up late at the beginning of our trip, and I was a little concerned when I saw the exterior of the motel. We got our key out of this cool little key lock thing by the office (we got in at like midnight), went to our room (115) I opened the door and BAM! Awesome. They folded the... More

The room was okay. I liked the jetted tub and the large see through glass shower. There were a lot of holes and dents in all of the walls though and we had ants in our room crawling all over the mini fridge and ledge of the tub. The mattress was pretty hard. I don't know that I would stay... More

My girlfriend and I booked a stay at this place because from their website said it was a resort. The pictures on the website made the place look like a nice place with nice rooms. We arrived at the "resort" to find that it was an old run down motel that looked horrible. We went a head and checked in... More

We stayed at Secrets Inn in March, room 118 and April, room 215. Both rooms were similar and newly renovated. Nice shower, jet tub, and overall bathroom. The fireplace regulates the heat. There was a refrigerator, king size bed, night stand, flat screen TV, and closet. Contract grade fixtures. Drawing tub water was fast but noisy. Floor was a bit... More
