“Positive Reviews of the Hotel and Spa; Negative Review of the Casino”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

HOTEL - Our hotel room was free. We were a little worried that the rooms might be outdated, stale-smelling, etc. but the free part was so tempting. Our hotel room was nice. The bedding was very comfortable, there is a safe in the closet, the room and the bathroom were clean, towels were nice quality, and the view of the gulf was great. There is quite a space at the bottom of the door and we could hear people clearly talking in the hallway. We always take a fan when we travel, so this was not a problem at bedtime. Our only complaints ---- like you've read in other reviews --- no mini-fridge in the room, no free wi-fi, and there is a $ fee charged if you check in before 3:00pm --- even if they have plenty of rooms ready! We found the drinking water in Biloxi (in general) to be foul tasting. We bought a case of water for our room and kept bottles in a cooler.
CASINO - Yuck. It's small. We lost $ right away. (We won at the smoke-free Palace and the Hard Rock!) The smoke was unbearable at the Grand. The veil of smoke was so thick in the casino bathrooms, you could wave your hand and watch the haze move! We did not return to the Grand's casino for the remainder of our stay.
RESTAURANTS - didn't eat there.
SPA - lovely, relaxing, and worth every dime.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a gulf view.

We stayed here because we had a free room for 4 nights from Harrah's. They gave us a handicapped room which was a waste but that was all they had for 4 nights. The room was clean. I refuse to pay for WiFi so I never used it. Nice employees. The casino is really small though so we wound up spending our money elsewhere. The breakfast buffet was really good and they had a buy 1, get 1 free deal so that was great. Overall it was a decent hotel.

Great hotel! Great service would def come back and stay here again. Buffett was a bit disappointing but for the price it was expected. Rooms were fantastic though I do wish there was a desk but I suppose people don't come here and get work done. Pool was under construction so I didn't get to see what that area looked like but appeared nice in pictures

I base my rating on the premise that we only had to pay $15 a night for Sunday through Thursday check in. So what if the casino floor was small, we went elsewhere to play. We also ate elsewhere because the food at the buffet was below average, not like the Harrah's in Vegas which has Excellent food! The room was immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable and there was a coffee pot in the room, really...when you come to gamble, you dont need wifi or tv, just a comfy place to sleep and The Grand Biloxi was just that, Perfect! We did not win a thing on the slots, but we did not win elsewhere either. I would complain about the lack of machines, but after-all Biloxi is still in recovery from the Horrible Hurricane!!!! Thank you Grand Biloxi for making our trip memorable and comfortable and inexpensive!!! OH and one more thing Please bring back the breakfast buffett!!!

We decided to take a spur of the moment trip to Biloxi which was about a 3 hour drive for us. We have stayed here before, so we checked the rates here first. Surprised to get a $29 /night midweek offer, so we packed a change of clothes made the trip. Next surprise upon arrival was an upgrade to a suite. Have to say it was "5 star" all the way! There just are not many hotel suites nicer at any price. We came to gamble so did not spend that much time in the room. Casino was fun.
