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

The best compliment we can receive is that our guests can't wait to return! Glad to hear you had a great time with the kids, remember Heavenly Inn, our sister property has rooms with kitchenettes for when the kids need more room for the next generation!! Thanks again and we look forward to seeing all of you in the future!... More

We stayed two nights at this Inn,and we were very happy with it. The room was clean, modern, with great decor. The Jacuzzi tub was amazing! The king bed was comfortable and cozy, and the staff was very friendly with lots of suggestions of places to eat and visit. The morning we checked out the Innkeeper chatted with us for... More

So I wanted to get away with my girlfriend for the winter and I wanted to make it special but I couldnt pay too much for it. And that's when I found this place its super cozy and I was able to get a room for a pretty reasonable price. I do have to admit I was a little bit... 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.

This Inn was amazing! My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon and we couldn't have picked a better place. The service was so personalized and helpful. Everyone on staff was a joy. The General Managers Joe and Debbie were absolutely great, as well as Lynn, the lady that booked our stay. From the first phone call it was... More

The Secrets Inn is conveniently located near shops and the Casinos. The staff was informative upon check in about amenities and activities to enjoy in the area. The room is rather cramped with all they have fit in for the Tahoe suite. They also have coolers and beach chairs available for use. This was a pleasant surprise. Due to the... More

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
