“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Nice Hotel in a nice location. Room clean with a comfortable bed. View was nice, but there seemed to be a building in front of the water that was not completed. I could still see the water. However, we got a second room that was a smoking room and it smelled...like cigarette smoke. I'd suggest you get a non-smoking room and walk outside to smoke...it's better than smelling that scent all night.

Room Tip: Ask for Non-smoking. It's a casino. There is not a lot to do for children on site.

We had prebooked a room here and arrived a day early, went to the desk to see if we could get another night free as we are Total Rewards Members and she had rooms available but wanted to charge us $80 for the night, so we said no thanks, i know if we had of had wifi it would have been free I honestly think it was the girl we went to. We stayed our 1 night and moved on to the next city, New Orleans gave us 4 free nights, so go figure! Disappointed Grand Biloxi!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We stayed here beacuse we have discounted and free room options from Harrah's so we opted to try the Grand. I can't squak to much since our room was free, and our room was nice enough. The king bed was comfortable and the room was clean, the parking was another story. We have a one ton truck and the parking at any of the Casino's there are not parking friendly if you have a big vehicle. We had to park way, way away from the entrance to the hotel and walk across the Casino floor just to get to our elevator. Whew, it was a trek, the employees were helpful and friendly. The casino floor wasn't very big and we ended up playing elsewhere during our stay, as it does need some updating. The wi-fi has a charge of $12.00 per 24 hour usage, which we opted out of, and seems to be the same for all the Harrah's we've stayed at, I really feel this should be updated to compete with other hotels. Even though our rooms we free this trip, dollar for dollar there are other casino's that are newer and offer more amenities.

Our first stay here; overall not a bad property but just a little polish could make it a better experience. Room pricing is a bit inconsistent: $64 on Thursday, $140 on Friday? Room was clean with very comfortable king bed, but walls thin; hope for quiet neighbors. Some basic amenities seem to be lacking: no microwave or refrigerator! Even a Holiday Inn has those! Also, $12 a night for wi fi?? If you're going to charge like a luxury hotel, then be one.
Staff was very friendly; food just OK. Like I say, they could go from good to great with a few tweaks.

We have several discounted and free room offers in Biloxi but we decided to try the Grand. Very disappointed with our choice. As a previous post indicated there was a $15 charge for early (by 1 hour) check in. Haven't seen that before but the daily charge for Internet? Come on. Even WDW now provides free wireless.

Our room was clean but needs some updating. We stayed at 2 other casinos in the last 2 months and they were nicer, less expensive, didn't charge to check in early or for wireless.

My husband and I stayed at Grand Biloxi November 27th thru the 29th. We were able to upgrade to a suite and our room was perfect. The bed was really comfortable and the huge jacuzzi in the bathroom was wonderful. My husband also played a round of golf at the Grand Bear and had a terrific time. The golf course is located about thirty miles away, but he said the trip was well worth it. We had our own car, so transport was not an issue. We also stayed again on the 6th of December thru the 8th. We were upgraded this time also and our suite had windows in every room including the bathroom that looked out over the Gulf. Beautiful! The staff and casino hosts were very helpful. Erica Hoban, a Casino VIP Coordinator, was especially helpful in making our stay great.
