Grand Casino Hinckley

Reviewed August 12, 2008

Stayed on a casino promotion for birthday. The hotel is very nice. Room (king bed NS) was good sized. Bed was a memory foam type matress which we had never tried and now know we will never buy one. They're good if you never move around but to roll over means climbing out of a hole you've sunk into. Room was spotless clean. Bathroom not large but OK. Despite fan mirror fogged up badly and took alonf time to clear. When they built the new wing they should have used a mirror defogger electric mat on the back of the mirror like many hotels are doing when the vanity is in the same room as the shower.

The hotel areas are smoke free in contrast to the adjoining casino. Did not try the pool but there are several on the property and adjoining RV park. Check-in/out were super efficient. Week nights the hotel seems pretty low occupancy so calling directly for a casino rate might be worthwile. Weekends they can be very busy and rates higher ($100+/nt). All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

I should preface my comments by saying that, overall, our room, in and of itself, was fine. It was clean, very spacious, and the beds were fairly comfortable. We were at the Casino to see a show, not to gamble, but the place was very crowded, so there was a lot of smoking in the casino. As a result, even though our room was on a non-smoking floor, the smoke tended to permeate the entire building, even the non-smoking areas. It seemed as though there was no filtration system working in the building.
If you are a smoker, this hotel is fine. If you are not a smoker and are sensitive to cigarette smoke, you may want to look elsewhere.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. We stayed in the main hotel tower. Had a sweeping view of snow covered hills out our 14th floor room window. Enclosed pool area was fantastic. Rooms are spotless and well maintained. Thumbs up 100%.

We go here often. In the summer for the gambling and golf and the winter for the gambling and get-a-way. We always order breakfast in the room and it always astounds us that the eggs are still hot upon arrival. The rooms have always been neat and clean and the housekeeping staff have been very patient with us when we haven't vacated it in a timely manner. We find the price very fair and the staff helpful. We would have no problem staying at the Grand Casino Hotel again.

Unable to book online directly through the Grand Casino website. Stayed in the newly remodeled wing. Our room was nice-clean and comfy; however the hotel staff left much to be desired. The hotel staff, (check-in, valet, security, restaurant, bellman, night manager, etc) were not able to answer or help with the most simple of requests or questions. From what restaurant options do we have on-site to how late is the pool open.
Unless I was going strictly for gambling I would never stay at the Grand Casino Hinckley Hotel again.

Two adults and two teenagers stayed here in mid-November 2006. We were in the area for family events, and actually did not gamble at the casino. The main reason to stay at the hotel is the casino, as there are very few other activities in the local area, especially in winter. Overall there were no problems, and the room was nice, especially for the price we paid.

i have stayed at the casino many tines over the last 6 yrs .since they have started the construction to expand i feel the over all quality of the casino has slipped. the food at the grill however is still good. large portions at reasonable prices. i play alot of slots and they have a excellent variety. i think they have tightened them up to pay for the construction. the comps have been scaled back for sure. i think the way to go is to stay across the street. clean rooms same price as the casino. they have a great pool and a free continental breakfast. just take the free shutle to the casino. we still like hinkley and are goining back in january
