A very charming hotel right in the center of all the action. Across the street from the lake and Riva Grill (great food and ambiance). We walked to Harvey's Casino for a show and a little nightlife and had a ball! Fantasy Inn, our new hideaway!

Hehehe we went her over our honeymoon several years ago. We started in San Fran and stayed at several locations to napa, Lake Tahoe and down pacific coast. We chose this place to throw in so e silliness and fun, and just to break away from the normal type places we had booked for the journey. Well it was awesome!... More

My husband and I were celebrating our honeymoon. We were looking for a place with an in room spa, fireplace, king size bed. This place had that and more! On top of the 7 foot whirl pool spa in our room, which comfortably fit my tall husband, it was accompanied by a European shower. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. I... More

We absolutely loved the place. The rooms were very nice and we really enjoyed the hot tub in the room as well as the fireplace! The cost was better than most-especially the casinos. The casinos were only about 1mile away. We were right across the street from the marina, cruises, boat rentals, etc. and there were several nice restaurants within... More

Since my girl had set up the reservation, I wasn't sure what to expect and it looked alright from the outside but definitely was taken away when I opened the door to our room. The Sultan's Tent room was very clean, nice complimentary basket (muffins, apple juice, OJ, bottled waters and protein bars) also the

This quaint hotel is worth a visit with the one you love. At first, I was a bit hesitant about booking a room there as it could easily have been a seedy, tacky place catering to those seeking a noontime tryst with the secretary. While not prudish, my wife and I are far from the "swinging" set. That said, I... More
