Beautiful room, loved the huge jet tub & fireplace. Workers were very knowledgeable & hospitable. Joe can guide you as to where to go and what to do. We would definitely stay here again. Can't wait to come back.

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

Thanks again and we look forward to seeing all of you in the future!... More

We stayed at Secrets Inn for our honeymoon getaway 9/25-9/28. My husband booked the largest suite, Alpine. We arrived about an hour before check-in and our room was ready for us. Debbie was very pleasant during check-in and gave us some tips and ideas for activities. There was an issue with the reservation system and Debbie informed us that she... More

Upon walking into our room we noticed a pee smell emanating from the washroom. The bed was huge and there was a two foot space to walk between it and the large cabinet. The "spectre" brand television was offset from the bed making its viewing quite awkward. We had a mini fridge that was locked away in a side table... More

Stayed for 1 night only in the Alpine Suite which was huge, full of mirrors, very clean, and had a wonderful two-person shower and heart-shaped jacuzzi. Debbie was very helpful when we booked and in accommodating our late check in and early check out. It was a very pleasant stay and I would love to stay here again.
