My husband and I just spent our 16th Wedding Anniversary in the "Pearl Under the Sea" fantasy room on April 4th. We loved this room from the moment we walked in the door. The lighting was set and beautiful music was playing. It was so romantic. My husband and I plan to spend every anniversary at the Sunset Inn from now on.

My husband and i have been going to this Hotel for the last 7 years. We go once a year for 2 days, one day is just not long enough. We have stayed in all but 3 of the fantasy suites. This year we stayed the first night in the Hawwaiian Waters room and we were very thrilled with the room. The bed was awsome. The room as a whole was wonderful. The second night we stayed in the cabin fever room and we were just as thrilled. The room had a very warm feel to it. The showers in the fantasy suites is something everyone should experience. The hotel has a nice pool opened 24 hours, but we find it hard to leave our suite. All of the suites that we have stayed in we have loved. Some rooms we like better than others but there is not one room we wouldnt stay in again. We are already looking forward to next year. This year we werent ready to leave after 2 days. We thank sunset inn for such a wonderful 2 days that wont soon be forgotten.

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.

We stayed in the Rainforest Room and definitely plan on coming back. We're from Springfield, so it's great to be able take a short weekend getaway (less than 45 minutes from our home) and feel like you're a world apart. We also got to peek at the Aquarium room while we were there and it was really neat too. The shower is magnificent, the jacuzzi is wonderful, the stars and mirror above the bed, unbelievable! It's much better in person than it is in the pictures (and I thought it looked really cool from the pictures). I was really impressed with the lighting options and the spaciousness of our room (and shower). Our stay there was a special time we'll never forget. It was also great to spend a little time in the game room. It was definitely well worth the money to stay there, I just wish we had enough money to stay there more often.
