Just a night out

It's a casino, can be loud and smoke filled, but can also be a great place to go and get lost for awhile. I have stayed at the hotel a few times and found it to be comfortable and... read more

This place is dated for sure and could use a major update. It is a smoking establishment and for those wanting an adult beverage you can forget it. I had a few minutes one day during my stay and decided I'd try blackjack. The dealer was rude and would not let me in. 2 others approached the table and he... More

It's a casino, can be loud and smoke filled, but can also be a great place to go and get lost for awhile. I have stayed at the hotel a few times and found it to be comfortable and quiet, but if you like to eat at night it can get expensive with only a little grill open. Food is... More

Great place to play the slots. Slot attendents and beverage servers are very nice and friendly. Was disappointed with the long buffet lines especially since it was senior day at the casino. They only had one cashier working, many guests left the line as they couldn't stand that long. The casino should have been prepared with more employees working for... More

I've visited this property 3 times now, and the first two I really enjoyed. This time, I went with my gaming partner and unfortunately the gaming returns were not kind. "That's why they call it gambling"....yeah, yeah. I know all about it. But this was extreme. I didn't really have a gaming bankroll the two times prior but went for... More

Very nice comfortable stay for my wife and I. The only issue we have at this motel is the wifi is the worst and that is with smart phone or computer!!!

This hotel is decent and the room are clean. The service is good. The casino is average - a mix of machine types but more seem to be the 'newer' versions (where I don't understand what is happening when I 'do' win). Parking is not all that close to the hotel - but is still doable (just a little chilly... More

Haven't been here for a few months. They always have new machines and lots of them. The casino was very busy arrived late afternoon. Only wish it wasn't so smoky in the casino maybe they should think about upgrading their ventilation system. Great time had by both of us! Especially our dinner in the Grand Northern Grill. That was awesome!

Modern casinos have gotten really good with air filtration, just visit any of the newer Las Vegas Strip properties and the air quality is really very good. Apparently, Grand Casino hasn't gotten the memo. This place reeks of cigarette smoke on any moderately busy night. Fortunately, there is really isn't much here to attract me to visit. I will say...

We come here quite often and have brought friends many times. We have come on New Years Eve for quite a few years now, do some gambling and take in a few concerts. Good times had by all as always
