What a Fun place to stay! Rooms are clean and great! The tubs in the room are perfect! The staff was super friendly and accommodating... Close to the Casinos and shops. My new favorite hotel! My next trip to Tahoe I will be staying at the Fantasy Inn!! Thanks Fantasy Inn for a great stay!

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

Place is a hidden treasure. Went fro New Years last year and was one of the only rooms available in Tahoe. Once inside I found it to be very cozy and friendly. I was taken to my room and to my amazement it had a full size jacuzzi and mirrors everywhere!! Ended up staying extra 2 days and ended up... More

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

My wife has never been to Lake Tahoe and this looked like the perfect place to stay. It was. The Cleopatra room was great with a big whirlpool hot tub that felt great after a day at the beach and in the lake. We will stay here from now on.

I had no idea what to expect. I was given the Princess room and loved it! Mirrors all around the bed...Plus. Open room shower...Plus. Huge tub and more mirrors...Plus. Very sexy and erotic if you ask me. The staff was very friendly during check-in and check-out. Location is great. Outer exterior is not great but its not horrible either. The... More

Our room is amazing. The staff is wonderful. They have a little work to do on the buildings and they are doing it. This hotel is lovely. We cannot hear any neighbors, the water doesn't make noises, the jacuzzi tub is well maintained, and the bed is comfortable. We are staying in the Anthony and Cleopatra room and I'm glad... More

I stayed at this hotel 10 years ago and we just came back to stay for our anniversary and we loved it. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly. Very romantic. There were snacks and drinks in the room which was nice because there is no breakfast offered. We will definitely be back
