We stayed @ the Grand Sierra June 7-10, 2012. After ready some reviews we weren't sure what we would get. We booked via Expedia and requested a renovated room. We got what we requested, the new rooms were VERY nice & larger than average. (we met a couple there who did not get a new room, they hated the room they got)comfortable king beds, large flat screen and a small flat screen in bathroom. Larger than average microwave and fridge, and a single cup coffee maker. The bathroom was nicely tiled floor to ceiling & it had extra large shower. The casino it self was nice, not as large as I would have liked, the slots were tight. The cocktail waitresses were pleasant and came around often. The buffet was ok, nothing spectacular. The center bar, was nice and played dance music each night, the dance floor was small, but we had a good time. The pool area nice, with sand and lots of chairs as well as a grill and bar! The hotel is still undergoing some renovating, so the bathroom was a long walk if you were playing slots, also the casino had a large section with slots, but was roped off and still being renovated. All in all it was a pleasant experience. It is a short 1.9 mile drive to downtown Reno.
