My stay at the secrets inn last December was awesome. Sydney was super nice when we checked in, and just helped me make my reservation for when my girlfriend and I come again in December 9th. Definitely looking forward to checking in there again!😀

What a great place to stay! I can not say enough about this hotel. Great staff. Great Location. Great Experience. I truly hope I get to go back and stay again. The best place in Tahoe to bring a significant other.

There was nothing good about this "Inn" The secret is you should choose another property! We were stuck in Room 120, a cubby hole , so dark at night we could not see the key hole.

The room is quite small and cosy which would be really nice after a hard day of skiing but we were using this place as a place to stay in summer time which wasn’t as ideal.

The only good thing was the room was clean and updated.. Well, besides the pair of sunglasses we found under the bed that were not ours. The shower was terrible.
