We drove into South Shore without a reservation on the weekend of the Celebrity Golf tournament, and miraculously found a room at another place but (un)fortunately the room smelled like dog urine. Loved everything about Secrets! The innkeeper and manager, Debbie, rocks; she provided an ipad3 and a cooler for use during our stay. Dustin, who gave us the room,... More

It's all true what they say. The location is fantastic. And I would highly recommend it. The bed is top-of-the-line and it's decorated well (paint & tile work, granite counter-top on the vanity sink, etc.) BUT . . . the room is very small. Just be prepared. There is a Jacuzzi tub for two a foot away from the bed... More

It is hard to tell from the outside, but this truly is a great place to stay. The interior rooms have been completely remodeled and are very nice. Rooms include a fireplace, walk-in shower, fridge, and jacuzzi tub. They are a bit small, but very comfortable. The owners were very nice people, and go out of their way to make... More

My husband and I stayed in the Tahoe Plus room on the second floor. We were there Monday-Friday and we loved it. The location is great. It's a short walk to a nice beach (not totally private, but not crowded either) as well as shops, if that's your thing. It's just down the road from the Heavenly Gondola, and there... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Secrets. Very quiet and quaint. We were close enough to walk to restaurants and cafes, attractions and the beach. The inn provided a pass to the beach, a great CD to use which gave the history along with notable places to visit around the lake. A wonderful tour. Thanks to all... More

The room was clean and cozy. Loved the Jacuzzi tub. It is close to beach, gondola and the casinos. The freshly baked cookies in the front office add to the good experience! :) We enjoyed our stay here.

My girlfriend and I spent 4 days in South Lake Tahoe and had a great time. Our room was very clean, cozy and romantic. GM Debbie was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. She even told us to open the door to our room if we wanted to get a nice cross breeze! :) My girlfriend and I plan on staying... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to review your experience. I'm glad to hear the staff was super friendly, you enjoyed the cookies and the IPad 3. We have had other comments that the rooms are a bit small and that every inch was used to its fullest potential. Secrets Inn is known for the INN-room jetted tub experience.... More

We recently moved to the Reno area and were dealing with a lot of stress from the move. We took a weekend trip to Secrets Inn without kids for our anniversary. The stay was amazing! The motel was quiet, the room was very relaxing and the jacuzzi was perfect. We got the romance package added and it was a nice... More

We showed up at this motel around 2:00 PM. I walked into the lobby where the owner/manager(?) interupted the desk clerk and asked the family of 3 ahead of me to "step aside while he helps me because there is a problem with their reservation". (Very loud, very public). I check in while he is reading this couple, with their... More
