good for family with kids

1. The best part of this hotel is that there are many areas with nonsmoking signs. It's Good for family with kids. 2. It looks new, bright, and clean. 3. If you have a kid, and you want to buy some baby foods, snacks, fruits, there is a Walmart very close to GSR, very convenient.

Another night in Reno

I really like this place. Abot the only thing that would be more enjoyable would be if maybe you could get to the other casinos easier. You will need to drive if you want to go to another casino. The bad part I have had here a coupole times was just checking out. I sometimes seen an expresso check-out box, but I went to check-out once and the express check-out key drop boxes were taken away. There was a very long line of people checking in, and I didn't feel like waiting at least 15-20 minutes to check out. I really wanted to get on the road for my drive to Las Vegas. I was mad, but I just quitely put my keys on the counter and left. I think a customer commented on what I did, but I think he said he agrees with me. I wasn't charged anything, so things went fine. I have stayed here a few times, and my only problems seems to be the front desk is always short handed, the hotel should budget for one more desk person than they think they need.

Great Trip...

Awesome hotel. Staff was great. The GSR Reward program was excellent. There were couple of activities to do such as bowling, shows and Gaming and we could spend quality time with family and friends. The view from Grand Suite II and the amenities in the room made the stay very comfortable. The only discomfort part was the housecleaning. The room was not well cleaned when we came. Next day when we came back from trip at around 2 PM, the house cleaning was not done and we had to call the housecleaning. This was repeated the next days as well. Besides that, all in all a good experience. We are yet to try other resorts to be able to compare, but we plan to do that next couple of trips to be able to decide which would work better for long run.
