“Short trip to Biloxi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I have had a few quick trips to various locations and like to choose a mid-price point if only staying for a night. The Grand Biloxi fits that bill. I found a room for $109. No view of the gulf but the bed was comfortable. Be careful to park in hotel parking, not the casino. It is a lengthy walk. Also, if you are sensitive to smoke or old smoke smell, this probably isn't your hotel. Staff was friendly and the price was half of the rooms at Hard Rock and Beau Rivage.

The shower in our room had absolutely NO WATER PRESSURE....the Tub was DIRTY. The Grand Buffet was the worse we have ever seen. We will not be back...and it was our 29th anniversary.. Oh and WHERE ARE THE COCKTAIL SERVERS?!! This property is not worth your time. Very disappointed.

The Grand Biloxi is a nice hotel. The rooms are clean amd comfortable. The proximity of the casino adds to the fun. Almost all of the staff are kind and friendly.
The lobby bar is functional, but very slow in serving food and drinks. The bartenders are often distracted and don't seem to notice when the patron is ready to order. The food quality is above average, but again it takes forever to be served. Does the kitchen have enough staff?

We stay here most often when in Biloxi, good service, nice clean room and the casino gives great comps. Buffet is very good and lots of variety. Self parking is available if you do not use the valet. Overall a very good value.

As casino hotels go, it was acceptable, but nothing to rave about. The best part was the suite we upgraded to and the worst part was that the casino was pretty small.

The food was decent, but a little over priced. However, we found other good less expensive places to eat elsewhere in the Biloxi/Gulfport area.

I'd highly recommend the Biloxi/Gulfport area and I'd recommend staying wherever you can get the best deal.

We have been to several Harrah's establishments and have always been pleased! We have flown on their charter to Tunica and Laughlin. I don't remember the last time we paid to stay at a Harrah's, however this was a last minute decision and it was the weekend for "cruisin' the coast" so few rooms were available. We have been to Biloxi but never stayed at the Grand. We were able to get a room at the Grand for $139. When we walked in the room we noticed an odor but as we were ready to gamble did not put much thought into it. We were in the casino less than an hour and $400 less than we brought so we decided to go elsewhere. We got back to the room about 2 a.m. and I recognized the smell. IT WAS MOLD!! It was visible in the bathroom but the odor was stronger in the room. My asthmatic mother was with me and we were lucky she didn't have any issues. We spoke with a casino host Sunday morning. She was very friendly to file a claim and ask if we needed paramedics. I did ask if she could adjust the room rate and was told "because of my play" no adjustment could be made. She said they are a smaller casino and their guidelines are more rigid. I did appreciate her honesty and told her we would be back in Biloxi but not at the Grand!

We expected King Size beds, since that was what we reserved (I guess we didn't read the fine print closely) That said, two queens were OK. However, someone had already been in this room. There was a used washcloth and towel, the soap was opened, in the shower and by the sink, someone had been sitting on the bed, as well. Perhaps they moved the occupants, who knows.

They are a little TOO pet friendly, the dog 3 rooms down barked incessantly, so my daughter and her boyfriend had to move to a different floor, so we were separated. The pool is nice, as is the hot tub, but there was no way to know how/where to get towels. They really should have it cleaned and ready before opening the next morning, I felt like I was sitting in an after-party section. The casino was not one of the best. No servers to be found, several machines down the entire time we were there.

Regardless of these issues, I will say the staff was really friendly, and courteous in every area, from front desk to pool staff, housekeeping, and casino floor.
