I honestly loved Secrets Inn. I live in San Francisco and decided to just randomly make a couple days trip to South Lake Tahoe for the first time. I found Secrets Inn and it seemed great. I called ahead to advise my late arrival since we were taking to the road after work to go straight here. They made the... More

I was looking for a place to celebrate our 20th anniversary and because of some other circumstances, was not able to book until the week before our visit. I chose this location because we wanted a room with a nice tub in the room, which we got. Some of the rooms have very outdated decor. Ours was fine, but it... More

Staff were wonderful. Very helpful. Pointed out great places to eat and visit while vising. Some of the recommended activities were not yet available, but food recommendations were spot on. Outside of hotel looks a little rough. Rooms initially appeared very clean, however ants were found in the bathroom. Also, the TV was not functional. Bed and linens were clean.

The small elegant room provides an intimate environment for couples. However, it may not be for everybody. The place is great for couples who just want to hang out in the whirlpool and drink their wine. The inn provides a complimentary bottle of wine and you can keep their wine glasses. The shower room is huge because it's next to... More

Tiny rooms. I cannot stress enough how tiny the rooms are. Barely enough room to turn around. There's nothing to do on the grounds either. A beach is nearby, but it's a walk. No views from the windows except of the parking lot. People come and go all night, so don't expect to get any rest. They are LOUD. The... More
