“Not Grand, but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is a good hotel option in the Biloxi area but it wasn’t Grand. When we got there they only had King rooms left. We had 4 older adults, you can’t really have 3 old adults sleep in a king bed and one in a rollaway! I can just see broken hip if the one sleeping in the middle had to get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. As a result, one of us slept on the roll away and one in the chair. Not what I would consider the best sleep arrangement but it worked. The only good thing is the room faced the Gulf. The hotel room itself was very nice. The rooms were fairly big. There were some options for eating in the hotel lobby. The restaurant by the bar was very nice and the service was good. The little coffee shop place was VERY slow. We ordered a whole pizza and it took 45 minutes for us to get it. And it wasn’t just the pizza, we went there for some of their awesome desserts and that took really long too. The Casino of course took all our money.

The buffet was a pale comparison to others in the area. The walls are thin. They charge fees for local calls and wi-fi. Less than basic cable. My room was so humid that all of our belongings and snacks felt damp. There was no ventilation in the bathroom. And, worst of all, we were on a supposedly non-smoking floor but everyday there was someone smoking in front of the elevators. When we called the front desk they told us to ask the guest who was smoking to stop. That was the level of customer service we received.

Room Tip: Go to a competitor.

The casino was very bright! Service was great, but who wants to drink and gamble under a spot light?? The steak house resturant was absolutely amazing!! The best food and service I had during my stay in Biloxi!

Large, well-appointed bedroom and bathroom. Comfortable bed and our room had lovely view of Gulf of Mexico. Very quick and easy check-in. We had two problems with noise (people talking loudly outside our room in middle of night, and fire alarm (false alarm) going off around 10 p.m.) but these were not the hotel's fault. Wonderful pool which was fun area for children. Free exercise room. Casino at the Grand Biloxi has wide variety of slots and table games, but is smaller than most of the others in the area. Several nice restaurants (Steakhouse, Buffet, Snack Bar) located on site. We certainly would stay at the Grand again!

Room Tip: Most even number rooms have view of Gulf of Mexic.

Nice Hotel, very friendly staff, one of the smaller casinos (but big enough), excellent service. I read a few negative reviews before I left for Biloxi and they were mostly wrong. The Grand was a very nice place to stay, eat and gamble. The staff was as friendly as any other Harrah's property and that's saying something because Harrah's has the most friendly employees of any properties I stay at. I would recommend The Grand to anyone who's not looking for the fanciest place in town, but would like a hotel that easy to get around and not so big that you can't find someone your looking for. I was very pleased with our 4 day stay at The Grand and will definitely return in the future.

If you are polite to the staff, they are nice to you. I have always wanted to say that to the other contributors, as I suspect that is the problem with many people. However, back to the review. The hotel was nice on a Monday, not too crowded. However, people left their children at the pool without supervision so the pool was okay. Nice pool. The room was comfortable and well maintained . I asked for a quiet room and they gave me one at the end of the hall. My daughter and husband were pleased with the beds, and the bathroom was clean and well stocked. Did not gamble and we ate elsewhere.

We enjoyed our time at Grand Biloxi. It is more intimate than one of those huge casinos, but great accomdations. Room very nice, large, wonderful bedding, great view of Gulf, and roomy bathroom.

Room Tip: Ask for room on Gulf side for great view.
