I just took my wife to Tahoe for our 20th anniversary and chose Secrets for the location and the hot tub. The room was so much more. We had the Spruce sweet and really loved the large room and the bed was very comfortable as well. The hot tub was great after a day kayaking and I'm 6'3" and fit... More

The pictures of the rooms online are deceiving. They are much smaller than they appear. Literally, there was no room for my suit case. No chair nor table to put my keys etc. The room was clean and updated.

We had a very nice stay here recently. It is definitely catered to the romantically inclined (our room had a heart shaped jetted tub and lots of mirrors...) and was nice because it was kid and pet free, helpful for a romantic weekend. It's very conveniently located. The only reason I gave it a four is that in our room... More

Checking in and out at Secrets Inn was quick, easy, and a hospitable experience. Adriana did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable and respected as we checked in and out, even during the hectic July 4th season when we stayed. The rooms are clean, offer a huge shower and a very comfortable, jetted tub for two. They offer little... More

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...

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
