I had purchased the LivingSocial deal that popped up in an e-mail. It DEFINITELY was a deal and a total steal! We stayed here for my birthday getaway! OH MY GOD... I'd stay here again. Let me just start by saying... The owner Debbie was very friendly. The office closes at 8pm, but they have these really neat lock boxes... More

This was a great, romantic place to stay. There were some things that I was thinking would make this 5 stars for me, but they are just little things. The mirror in the bathroom was so tall for me and the bathroom lighting wasn't great. I had to tiptoe the whole time I was doing my makeup. I wish there... More

We stayed for a 2-night getaway. It was nicely decorated, very romantic and cozy. The jacuzzi tub and the fireplace were wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and are planning to come back again.

We stayed here mid-February for the first time to enjoy skiing and gambling in South Lake Tahoe for 4 nights. We chose this property through our TAN condo community. We found the room to be very cozy and loved the big shower, jacuzzi, and fireplace! Perfect after long days in the snow! From this hotel you could walk to Heavenly... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in the secrets in Dec 2010, not 2011, and we had a great time. The staff were very friendly, the location was perfect, the rooms where nice and romantic, and overall the atmosphere was very pleasant. We had a great stay and would most definitely recommend staying at the Secrets Inn.

Room was very nice. We LOVED the jacuzzi tub. It was a quaint little room. Perfect for a romantic night or two. There was limited hot water in the morning but still gave 5 stars. I will be back again real soon.

I found this place two years ago. I honestly picked it because I like the pictures and the reviews were decent. All I can say is, after snowboarding all you want to do is get into a hot tub and relax! This place is simple, cheap, great location, clean, and you can't get better than having a hot tub right...

My wife and I spent three nights at Secrets Inn. The inn occupies a recently renovated motel located about a block from both the south lake tahoe "strip" and the beach. Our room was as advertised: clean, modern, and treated with essential creature comforts. The highlights: a quality and roomy bed, gas fireplace, jacuzzi, and large shower. Drawbacks: rooms are...
