My husband and I stayed here for a night while seeing a concert at Harvey's. The location was perfect. The staff friendly. The room was a little small with oversized furniture. Loved the tub. It would've been absolutely perfect if the floors were clean. So disgusting. Just a simple Rug Doctor would do wonders. It was really filthy, not only... More

My husband and I stayed here while attending a concert at Harvey's. We loved the staff, very informative and helpful. We felt the rooms were nicer in the pictures. Our carpets were stained and the bed had dips in it. For us it just did not have that clean feel about it. Overall it wasn't bad, but we will probably... More

I stayed at Secrets Inn for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. To be honest, I usually stay at hotels, but wanted something to work within my budget for the South Lake Tahoe area. After a bit of research decided on Secrets. My needs were simple – wanted something close to activities, comfortable and didn't need a kitchenette as... More

The service was tremendous giving us suggestions on local restaurants & audio cd for car ride around the lake (cd a must if driving around lake). The place is within walking distance of gondola ride & casinos. Would come back in a heartbeat!

The room was nice but too small. It felt like the bathtub, shower, toilet, and the bed are in the same room. No table or chairs, no place to eat or sit. The lights are too low, I can't put my make up on. The mirror at the sink was too high, I can't see my face or blow dry... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of March. It was a nice little retreat. Within walking distance of the beach, and less than a quarter mile from the big hotel/casinos. Wonderful front desk, very friendly. Had great suggestions for dinner and breakfast. We stated in the Tahoe suite. It's a very small room, but that didn't bother... More

This was our second stay here, but this time we booked a room for our son & daughter in-law as well...it was a birthday gift with a snowmobile tour. After being in the snow for over 2hrs, this place was just what we needed...a nice jetted tub, fireplace and time to relax. So worth every penny we spent on this... More
