My husband and I booked a night in the Space Odyssey room. The pictures on the internet looked interesting and it seemed like a good idea for a fun romantic night.
The outside of the hotel was a little run down looking. It did have a tacky red neon "Fantasy Suites" sign to class it up! The lobby was incredibly small. There was a front desk, a tv, a counter with a coffee pot and a sofa. The front desk clerk was very nice. But he handed us a key for our room. Folks, I don't mean a key card. I mean a key. With a diamond shaped keychain. It was like a horror movie! He told us that our room was upstairs and to the left. But we didn't see an elevator. So we asked. There's not elevator. Alright.
When we enter the room, we were both awestruck. Not so much that it was a fantastic room. But how much it looked like a Spencers. The walls were painted in a space decor, with roundish things I assume are planets and some weird lines. It looked like a 5 year old painted it. There were also some airplanes hanging from the ceiling. They didn't really fit in with the space theme.
Then there was a big space ship bed. It looked kind of cool. It had a mirrored ceiling with glowing lights and a 13" tv in the headboard that only got snow. Oh yeah, a car stereo in the headboard too. The bed was some sort of special "latex mattress" and it was round. It was actually 2 mattresses put together so there was a great valley in the middle. I ended up sleeping in the recliner in the room halfway through the night because the bed was so uncomfortable.
The room had a plasma tv, which was nice but the bracket didn't swivel so the tv could only be watched from the recliners. the recliners were comfy and each had a footstool. There were some cheap, cheap speakers which provided a lackluster theater experience.
The hot tub in the room was nice, just right for 2 people of average height. The freaky thing was that the water was yellow in the tub. We think due to the lights in the tub. There were also some nice paint splotches in the tub from when they painted the room. The tub also has a lighted mirror above it and behind it. It took forever to fill and drain.
The bathroom has no door. I'm not kidding. There are just some things I don't want to see my husband do. It was a roomy bathroom but because of the mirrors everywhere, you always could see in the bathroom from anywhere in the room. There was a bidet as well as a toilet. The shower was the nicest part. It was huge and had about 12 jets. There were 2 overhead and then a "Raindancer" on the wall. It had jets all over. You could adjust the temperature, direction and which jets were on. There was also a steam function so the shower doubled as a steam room. There was a bench if you wanted to soak up the steam. The bad thing about the shower was that it needed better drainage. If all of the jets were on, you had 4 inches of water. There is a window in the shower so you can see out into the room. And the room can see you.
Since the room was black light, you could see all lint, etc. It appeared that the carpet was clean and the room appeared clean as well. The shower did have some rust around the pipes leading to the hot tub and there was some mildew in the far corners of the shower. My husband said he got a little concerned about the shower's cleanliness given that this was a "fantasy suite" and he could only imagine what went on in the shower. I also felt the shower could have been cleaner. The shower did have a mildew smell after we took showers.
We skipped the continental breakfast in the morning. It appeared to be packaged danishes and coffee.
Maybe the other rooms are better but we were not really impressed with the room. If we go back, we are going to get a room with standard bed. That bed was the worst bed ever. While the hotel appeared clean, it kind of creeped us. We prayed they clean adequately.
