Average Stay

The hotel was average. Nothing to write home about, yet nothing to really complain about either. The restaurants were quite good and very reasonably priced. The shopping was fun as well as the arcade area for the kids.

Grand Sierra Resort

The hotel has a very nice casino, bars, and lounge/Clubs. A number of great restaurants are located in the hotel (i.e. Charlie Palmer's is very good if your looking a a nice romantic meal) and there is a bowling ally for the kids. The hotel is only minutes from the downtown area, if you want to head of to the downtown casinos. The room we were given was very spacious, though it was a bit older but fine for what we were looking for and the price we received. I understand that the Summit rooms, which we were not in, are top of the line though. I would definitely stay here again.

Three night star at the summit

This was perhaps the best value I ever received in a hotel stay. We stayed in a superior summit room on the 26th floor. The room was clean and spacious,the staff was most helpful,and our rate included a complimentary breakfast with,in our case ,omelets cooked to order.

False Advertising

To start, the pictures available online are not accurate as to what the room actually looked like. The room was not renovated, the electrical outlets shocked me (multiple times) when pluging in my cell phone and laptop, and (despite multi complaints with staff) persons smoking ( and selling) narcotics in a hotel room were not even spoken to. This is by faaaaaaaar the worst hotel expierence that I have had.

Becoming the place to stay in reno.

GSR is a great place to stay, Rooms are vary nice super clean and the staff is always willing to help. Good night life and during the summer the pool is the best. 10 mims. outside downtown but well worth a nine doller cab ride. One bad thing is thay do charge you for a late check out ??

Good family getaway

The room that I stayed at is newly renovated. Clean and comfortable with fridge and microwave. Location is a bit off the downtown area but it is very close. The hotel is going to have a new indoor pool in 2013. I am looking forward to that. With the price that I paid for the summit suite, I think it is a good deal! I will for sure stay at this hotel next time I go to Reno. The only thing that can be improved is the wifi signal inside our room. It is very slow.
