“Great Location”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

This Inn is in a great location. Walking distance to the lake and to shopping, eating and other entertainment. Be advised that the rooms are small. It is a good price for it, though. We went there for our 10th wedding anniversary. Everything was great except one of the reasons we stayed there was because they have jacuzzi tubs in every room, for an affordable price, and on the weekend (a Friday night), when we went to turn the tub on, there was no hot water! We waited, and tried again later, and still no hot water, so we coudn't even use it one of the nights we were there, and weekend nights cost more money! When we said something about it upon checking out, the manager made us furious because he just said that the inn was full last night. His lame excuse made us more mad then the hot water not working for us. It shouldn't matter if the place is full. That is our problem? We paid to have a jacuzzi tub, and we didn't get that. We asked if we could be refunded a little, and he said he couldn't make that decision. What? Aren't you the manager? He said he sent the info to whoever decides, and we still haven't heard from them a month later, so I guess that means they aren't giving us any money back. It's kind of sad because this really is a pretty good place, if you don't need swank, but I'd be afraid to stay there on a weekend again when there is a greater chance of them being full. We also had to ask for a beach pass, instead of it just being given to us when checking in.

Management actually drove us into town when we needed a lift and couldn't have been more generous. We had a great time and were able to relax at the Secrets Inn.

I had read reviews prior to going and was a little scared off by some of the negativity posted here on the walls being thin, cold showers, etc. I just want to let everyone know, those things are NOT TRUE!

This is a wonderful & quaint place. My fiance' and I went there for our honeymoon and were so very pleasantly surprised. The price was great, the room was beautiful, the location was perfect. The service was beyond compare! The owners are amazing. They even loaned us chairs, a beach bag, towels, and sunblock for our trips to the beach. This room is GORGEOUS. The jacuzzi was wonderfu. I promise you will fall in love if you go there.

A++++++++++

Room Tip: Tahoe Suite is very romantic.

My wife found Secrets Inn on-line and booked a one night, mid-week, get away for us. As others have noted; the room was a little on the smaller side but quite livable and exactly like shown on their web page. Very warm, cozy and inviting with a deep jacuzzi type tub, walk-in shower with a glass wall and very quite (no kids/pets....a place "for the rest of us!")
Conveniently located close to the lake with access to a private beach and the adjoining restaurant where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch. All the restaurants, bars, shops and casinos were but a five minute walk away.
I must commend the staff as they were exceptionally courteous and helpful, this coming from an ex-resort/hotel manager!

The staff were extremely pleasant, which makes our stay so much better, but I'm so disappointed in my room. :( I was so so excited about this 3day trip. Now I feel short-changed for the size of the room. I won't stay here again. Might not be for everyone... I'm not high maintenance in the least, but the size of the room doesn't work for us. (I'm 5 '2 105 lbs) even too small for me. No space to move, if we roll off the bed we'll be in the jacuzzi. :(

We stayed two nights and had a great time. The location was great - we could walk to the casinos and to the lake. Hotel management gave us great advice on where to hike, and other activities for active people. We're looking forward to going back!
