The rooms were dated but very clean and large. Mine had a fridge, table, several chairs and was large with one king. Staff was fantastic and kept me hydrated during my fights with the machines (the machines won.) Go carts, bowling, multiple
restaurants, driving range next to hotel, were all super easy to get to.
Whole hotel quite smokey- even my non smoking room. Restaurants were very good as well as all the wait staff that we encountered. Bed was comfy, old tv, old worn out furnishings, bathroom not updated, no coffee maker... overall disappointed with
the room. The strip if Reno is a $10 cab ride away- not walking distance. Not sure if I'd stay here again.
After a slightly long delay due to a booking error between Orbitz and the Hotel, we were well taken care of. The room was nice, newly renovated and had a great view. The onsite golf range was an interesting amenity, and more fun than I had
expected. The buffet was good and had a good variety.
Overall - very satisfied!
We used a special promotion to get a really great rate on a suite, so the quality of the room for the price was outstanding.
Nice furniture, comfortable beds, and lots of space.
The main drawback was our room was not ready when we arrived. Check
in is 3pm, we arrived at 9:30pm. Went up to our room, and it clearly had not been cleaned yet, with trash and towels from the previous guests. We were pretty tired and had to wait an additional hour before we could go up to our room, which was a bummer.
Other than that, nice place.
My stay at GSR was average at best. My room was semi-clean, but there was mold in the grout of the shower. The shower was an annoying dribble-shower, so good luck rinsing the shampoo out of your hair. Limited channels on the TV; plus no
complimentary coffee pot; no in-room microwave or fridge and no in-room safe either (which I found really odd at a casino). If you're not gambling the place is going to nickel and dime you to death. Since there is not a coffee pot in your room you be forced to order room service at close to $12 for an 8 cup pot of coffee OR you'll have to leave your room and go down to the main floor and buy a cup of coffee there. If you're not gambling a beer at the bar will cost you $4+. I also found the restaurants and the buffet REALLY expensive when compared to other casinos in the Reno area. The pool area is also expensive and kind of chaotic (not a real good place to relax). I order 2 Diet Cokes while pool side and it cost $4.50 for 2 cups of ice with a dash of soda.
There are probably nicer casino/hotels in the Reno area that are a better value when it comes to food, drink and entertainment. I know there is, because I left GSR on a few of the nights that I was there. I spent my money elsewhere AND I got a much better value for my dollar.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Go to another restaurant or casino for dinner. You'll get better food at a better price!
