We stayed one night on our way to the airport the next morning and glad we did. It was inexpensive, room was clean and very nice, had an excellent meal in the hotel, and it's practically next door to the airport, perfect for making our 6 am
flight. easy check in and check out.
Easy freeway access, everything you need is located in the hotel. Room was very clean and smoke free. Bed was comfy, room service was good, frozen yogurt store was yummy. I always choose to stay here when I am Reno.
If you're looking for a nice hotel for it's value in Reno, the GSR is the place for you. Great size casino, good eats and friendly staff. There were however a couple things missing from our room which would have been nice - no microwave, no
refrigerator, and no extra blankets in the room.
After Burning Man the Grand Sierra Hotel was a zoo of freaks returning from the desert. They were partying and smoking in the halls. You could hear laughter and the hiss of whip cream machines coming from the rooms. There were barefoot men in
furry vests dancing in the elevators. Scantily clad women were screaming in joy and running wild on the casino floor. It is a lot of fun if you like that sort of thing. If you don't, don't go there in the days after Burning Man ends!
Room wasn't clean when we checked in.
Sheets had blood stains, blankets were dirty, towels had green stuff stuck on them on the corners.
The bathtub was clogged and took 45 minutes for someone to unclogg it.
Every year i have stayed there it
keeps going further downhill...
The Grand Sierra has all of the usual tackiness of a large casino hotel, but nice and quiet rooms, an attentive staff, a pleasant pool area, and passable eating options. The housekeeping staff went back twice to find comfortable pillows when we
called; of the four guest rooms that I saw (including ones that friends stayed in), all were updated and had modern, if not a little tacky, fixturing. The breakfast buffet was everything you would expect with omelette station, all of the usual breakfast meats, pastries and baked goods. The italian restaurant was OK but overpriced.
