I stayed at the Fantasy Resort Casino Hotel in October 2008. I would rate the casino as average, it has plenty of slot machines and card game tables but no roulette and not a lot of character.
I was surprised to be told that the hotel had no breakfast buffet despite the fact that they have a buffet room and provide a good selection in the evening.
The hotel location is poor if you are not intending to stay in the hotel for all of your stay. You would have to drive 5-10 miles+ to get other dining options.
The hotel is quite new, the rooms are nice but small. However the biggest disappointment I experienced with this hotel was being charged $4.90 for a 'long distance' phone call of less than 1 minute from Indio to Cathedral City, all of 18 miles. In a country the size of the US, I'm staggered how this can be long distance and the cost albeit small in context is scandalous for the length of time and location.
Overall, I received a very good rate but ended up disappointed. Being charged $10 for wireless Internet access in this day and age is poor but I could accept that with the rate I paid.
