... to think we were eating at a unique, local restaurant but then we found out it was a restaurant chain! Food was great though, red fish, flounder, crab cakes, shrimp and okra. No grits for this group!
We got on the road this morning after Nick ran 2.5 miles along the beach and railroad tracks. He said it was like a scene out of a Hitchcock movie.....he was dive-bombed by a flock of birds and ...
It's pretty amazing but we spent 9 hrs on the road today and it felt like 4! We found a quiet little RV park near the beach in Gulfport, MS. Since it was a long day on the road and we were all exhausted from getting everything ready to leave we opted for dinner at the Half Shell Oyster House. Great meal and nice atmosphere........I had blackened redfish and everyone ...

I was completely blown away when I saw the beach - the sand was pure white, I thought the beaches around San Diego were good but these were unbelievable. It just ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Harrah'S Gulf Coast Biloxi
Great Place to Stay
We stayed here on Dec. 30, 2003. The room at the Grand Casino hotel was great. Two queen size beds and a large bathroom with plenty of room.
The hotel staff was extra friendly and courteous. The hotel was clean.
The casino action was great. There is plenty of food choices to choose from, including the buffets (great value and great food) and well as smaller items. The layout is excellent, and we couldn't find one thing to complain about...it was all great. A definite place to stay if you're in Biloxi and want to stay at a casino.
Really liked everything
I was just at your hotel last week. Had a great time. I think the rooms at the magic are nicer, but I still had a very good time. Everyone was excellant. I ate at the Market Buffet and Roxy's Diner. Also at the lakeview, which I thought was over priced for the quality of food. I would come back as often as I could if I could afford the airfare.
Stay within the Grand at Gulfport
We stayed at the Grand Hotel in Glufport, MS. It was wonderful and so was the pool. Our children love to play on the beach and we found the man made beaches and the water to be polluted and just plain gross. There was glass everywhere and I was upset to see beaches in such poor condition. I suppose tourists have contributed to this and it is a shame!! Beside the casino there is not much to do in Gulfport which seems to be a very poor town.
Friendly staff and horrible rooms
What a bad combination... Great Staff and terrible rooms. The rooms are very dated. Food is good. Pool area is nice. Easy access to casino if that is your thing. I would probably not return. Once again the staff is very nice and helpful.
The Grand at Biloxi is impressive
First class operation, all the way. Great looking place with the
necessary variety of gaming to keep you satisfied. No reason to check
out the others. I did, it was a waste of time. The Grand has it all:
from the slots, to poker, to their eating places, they offer it all. I
had a thouroughly super time.
Loved the Grand
Started going to the Grand about 3 years ago. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and excellent customer service. Hardly ever pay for a room, we use the free room coupons we receive in the mail.I love the slots and my spouse plays three card poker. We go two to three times annually and have been pleased each time. We have visted other casinos on the Gulf but the Grand is still the one.Roxy's diner is excellent and we always eat on comps when we go. We have taken friends with us and they have been very impressed.Would highly recommend the Grand!! We stay at the BayView Hotel each time and have never been disappointed.
My husband and I went with another couple. Our stay was fantastic, the Casino was great.The food it was like being on cruise ship. Everyone there was so very nice.This is what is expected from a good hotel.We are now heading to Tunica and staying at the Grand there. Only this time with more friends.Nick & I told them how great our stay was so now more people want to travel with us to the Grand Casino Hotel.Thank You
A Must when you come to Biloxi
We visit Biloxi at least three times yearly and we always spend at least three nights at the Grand. Their hotel is comfortable, clean, reasonably priced, and always up to our expectations. The casino is one of the luckiest on the coast. Their numerous restaurants give you your choice of cuisine. Overall it is a great property.
I've made five visits to Biloxi in the past year and a half and each time have stayed at least a night or two up to a week at The Grand (Island View and Bayview Rooms). I've managed to get very affordable rates ($29-59) by booking them well in advance and using casino coupons I've received in the mail. Check the internet rate daily even after you book your room at $69 night and you'll find the rates fluctuate daily down to $29! But you have to call and have them modify your rate or they won't honor it. (I witnessed numerous guests trying to get the rate they saw online but didn't reserve at, and they were denied.) The rooms are quite nice and clean with comfortable beds, quiet maid service, beautiful views and easy access to numerous casinos besides the Grand. After spending a week there this summer, I did not want to go home! The large buffet is only average though and I only eat at it when I have FREE BUFFET coupon(s). I have not tried the Seafood buffet however. The Island restaurant is quite good and the breakfast buffet is delicious.
Loved the Grand
We have been to Biloxi from Canada at least 6 times, we always gamble at the Grand, we find the people fantastic, my husband plays in the poker room and I play the poker machines, I always look forward to going, in fact we leave for Biloxi in 2 weeks and will stay for 25 days. Their buffet is the hilight of my trip, preparation of the buffet is always to my expectation. I only wish we could stay there, but we find the rooms too expensive, with our Canadian money doing so poor, 50cents to your dollar, we just can't afford your hotel. My husband and I will only go to the Grand, visited others but always came back.
The staff is well trained and efficient. Keep up the good work
See you on the 14th of Oct. 2002
