It looks like a fairy castle from a storybook: white parapets and turrets capped in red and blue, flags waving in the air, a wizard at the drawbridge.

So it’s no surprise that families with children are the main guests at Excalibur, along with ye olde budget travellers. The nice thing about Excalibur is that you can stay at the trendy end of the Strip without paying trendy hotel prices.

On the inside, the hotel doesn’t look very fairy castle — the decor is standard utilitarian — although you might feel as if you’re stuck in a royal labyrinth when you try to find an exit door. In addition to its inexpensive rooms and prime location, Excalibur is the only place in town where you can see live jousting and dragon-slaying and eat dinner at the same time. The ‘Tournament of Kings’ has two dinner shows nightly. Or perhaps you’d rather try the Italian food at the recently opened Regale Italian Eatery. And if you’re craving comfort food at Mackey D’s, that’s here, too.

I’m Matteo (Matt in English) But Italians naturally throw in an ‘0’ where ever possible, especially in the bedroom. When embarking on a new trip, I worry when opening my backpack, in case my mother has climbed in. Want to know more? Click Here
