Following a deal with and approval from the City Council, MGM purchased land at the intersection of Mill and 2nd Streets, at that time a gravel pit. The Summer of 1976 saw construction begin on the 26 story, 1,015 room property that would then be one of the largest in the world. After two years of fast tracked construction, the building opened with fanfare, fashion and media attention on May 3, 1978.

  • I had a great experience at this hotel. Room was good and service was OUTSTANDING! I was on a business trip and lost a very sentimental necklace, I didn't realize it until I got home, three states later, that I lost it. I called the hotel and my first call was after hours and they directed me, after tons of help, with a ticket number, to the main lost and found associates. I left a message and was called back immediately. They found my very precious necklace, and mailed it out free of charge to me the next day. Customer service is a very challenging business to be in and the amount of attention and patience they showed me was unforgettable. This team showed the best definition of customer service that i have ever experienced to date! I will forever book my Reno trips with them.
  • This is a really nice hotel casino. I've stayed here multiple times and the service is great, as is the restaurants. I've also done pretty good at the slot machines as well. If you play them try the twice the money double hit progressive in the non smoking area. I did really good on it. Only complaint I have is the pillows in the room are totally flat but I didn't give them less stars because every hotel I've stayed at pretty much all have flat pillows... Definitely recommend gsr =)
  • I partook in the buffet and the poker room. Both were excellent experiences. I mean, if you don't count lasting two hours in the tournament to get beat by a three outer...but that's poker for ya. The staff and fellow players were all congenial. The buffet had same savory selections and a very attentive staff. It was a seafood day and I don't usually get excited over that like my Sweetie does, but I found three different fish dishes that literally had me thinking about them hours later. Sweetie didn't even bother with crab legs she was having so much fun with the fish. I'd tell you about desserts but I don't want to contribute to your delinquency. (ssssshhhhh! Sweet salted caramel in chocolate sauce)
  • We came here from a long road trip and only intended to stay for one night...after our first night here we knew right away we were going to be here for a few more days..... all the staff here are so helpful and considerate, they really care about you having a wonderful experience at the Grand Sierra Casino and that makes a huge difference.....the activities list is full of so many fun things to do! Movies/shows/gambling/card rooms/go-carts/gym/bowling... it goes on and on!.... and the variety of restaurants will leave you completely satisfied!!!! Burger joint/subs place/pizza place/ then the over the top buffet is mind blowing.... but to be honest ... the Charlie Palmer Steakhouse is a hidden diamond that puts any top of the line Vegas strip restaurant to shame....the most delicious dinner we have had in awhile, it is rare that a meal hits every taste bud note, including a warm umami...... I highly recommend this gem of a Resort..... we will be back...
  • One of the best, family friendly casino resorts in Reno. A wide variety of entertainment available for everyone, from gambling and drinking to blacklight bowling and inexpensive movies at the theater. You don't feel like you're going to get some crazy skin disease from touching things the way you do at places like Circus Circus. Good food options overall, the buffet is good but could have a bit more flavor. Overall, my go to spot for a one size fits all experience!
