"Canceled our reservation without warning."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Arrived to check in but they canceled our reservation without warning. They had rooms available, however we decided to stay elsewhere. Businesses have reopened except this place. No amenities open. Much better hotels to choose from than Grand.

"Very rude and self serving bar and restaurant staff."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We brought 80 pluse people 1300 miles to be treated like they were doing us a great favor we paid thousands to that place and they were more interested in their own time then the guest I will not go back and will find social avenues to make other consumers aware the bar staff including the bar manager complained about other customers in front of the guests my daughter was heart broken with the condition of your so called penthouse suite filthy please post this so others can be warned I work in the service industry and if I had that attitude I would be fired as I should I would try contacting the hotel manager but it’s very obvious they don’t care it shows in there performance time for a house cleaning I owe you nothing but if you care al all contact me and I will detail it all and for Paul in bongos this is how I roll that’s the way they do it where I come from so don’t be afraid own it you screwed up bad because you didn’t give a crap.

"The facility was Okay but nothing like the pictures showed and it wasn’t worth the money."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Make sure you know of all the fees they charge above and beyond the hotel cost. Like parking in the cabanas, etc. The facility was more rundown than what we expected and the staff most of them were not very friendly.
