“A big rip off!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

We are currently staying here at the grand, even though we got a decent last min price, you have to still purchase things individually. Wifi was about $15 to purchase for 24 hours, no mini frigs, 5 channels the rest where news and hotel info, i paid almost $20 for 5 sodas, lobby front desk service sucked at check in, they kept putting me last in line because I wasnt a "diamond" member. Rooms are ok clean however I found a used razor under the towels. Im traveling for thanksgiving with kids and this is the FIRST AND LAST time I will ever stay at the grand in biloxi or affliated hotels.

Our recent trip at the Grand was grand. I twisted my ankle while packing up the car to leave for Biloxi. By the time we arrived I was unable to walk. Everyone at the Grand was so helpful... from providing a wheelchair to offering medical assistance. Luckily, I was up and about within a few days and truly enjoyed their gaming and restaurants, What impressed us the most was how employees greeted you whether at the front desk, entering the casino or just walking by. Definitely a place we will visit again.

Room Tip: If possible try to get a view of the Gulf... beautiful.

This was our first time in Biloxi and we really enjoyed ourselves. We had a king room that was clean,comfortable, and nicely appointed. All the staff was great, housekeeping gave us everything we needed, room service was fast and excellent food. The only down side was that the treadmills in the fitness center were out of order. Didn't win much until the last night. We will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The top floor was really quiet.

I was a little disapointed that they didnt have a normal bar. They had a bar area on the casino floor but there was no where to dance or anything like that and it was very bright of course because it was on the casino floor. The room was nice enough, nothing special but comfy.

I am relocating to the Gulf coast soon and recently drove down to view homes and stayed and loved it. Relocating is not fun. But I really am excited about the process. I recommend this hotel. The restaurant is pretty good 2. They have a nice pool and gym.

All guests should stay here when in Biloxi or Gulfport.

Room Tip: 5th floor and higher are good.

Stopped by for night on way home. Late reservation, but lucked out and got an upgrade room for no extra cost. The suite consisted on living room and seperate bedroom and huge master bath (with whirlpool). Excellent. All staff encountered were cordial and friendly.

Was travelling through and found a great rate on the internet. Stayed on a non-smoking floor and room was clean and lots of room. Charge for internet was high, I guess they don't want you staying in the room but would rather you be in the Casino. Didn't try the any of the buffets or services, but overall very nice lobby, staff, and facility. It did look like there was some construction(hotel expansion) in some areas, but didn't notice any noise or distractions on our stay(1 night). I would stay here again, but I doubt the promotional rate will last long. We were on the 7th floor.
