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

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
