Two day vacation

Plenty to do here, movie theater, casino, driving range, huge bowling alley with 50 lanes. Nice selection of restaurants although some are closed during weekdays. Very easy to get to, great parking. The hotel has a great layout, Room was a suite, very nice, although the bed was a little uncomfortable. My wife and I had a GREAT time here! We will definitely return!

Wedding Trip

We came to Reno to get married and stayed at the Grand Sierra Resort. It was a great place to stay. We stayed in a Grand Suite II. It was clean and comfortable. There is everything you can think of from gambling to bowling and movies right there at the resort.. It has a great atmosphere and the food at any of the restaurants was very good.. The entire staff that I came into contact with were friendly and helpful. We definitely enjoyed our stay and will come back again. Thank you for a great stay.

Terrific MidWeek getaway

Upper floors are the way to go. People are courteous and are usually quiet. They have put a lot of money for renovations. One item that bothers me, (this is typical) are the doors to the rooms. Why doesn't the Design team have a door and frame that can keep the corridor noise out. The use of drop seal door gaskets at the frames, would help. The thresholds are there so take advantage and have happier guests. The walls are well insulated. Interior designs are terrific, a little dark, but very nice. The beds are extremely comfortable.

Fantastic family getaway

We came to Grand Sierra Resort Casino because our daughter had a volley ball tournament at Sparks Convention Centre. This hotel was close to Sparks Convention Centre about 10 mins of driving. It was a long line for hotel check in around 9:30pm last Friday night.

Wedding & R&R

We were on the 12 floor, walking in we loved how spacious the room was. I loved the deco, looked like it needed another piece of furniture or something. Didn't look finished.There wasn't any body wash & when we asked for some housekeeping said, they only put it in the higher level rooms. The hand & face towels looked very worn. The lighting in the bathroom and the room itself was terrible. In the evening the space closes to the window was dark. It needed a floor lamp or ceiling lights. We made the bast of it & had a great time!
