Our room at the Grand Casino, Gulfport
Room: This was our second stay at the Grand Casino Oasis Hotel in Gulfport. The Oasis Hotel is actually across the street from the casino and main hotel (but both can be reached via an enclosed walkway that runs over the highway) and is a little less expensive since it is a bit of a walk. The room is average in size and amenities to a Hampton (and is a little less in cost).
Lobby: Standard-issue casino hotel lobby.
Service: Oddly, when we got in, the door to our room was open. Not all the way, but the deadbolt arm was extended, keeping the door from closing all the way. A pillowcase was left hanging on the closet door, and there was no extra pillow inside so we figured that the maid must have forgotten to come back with the extra clean pillow. I called down to the front desk to let them know that the room had been open all day and that I just wanted to make them aware of it since I wan't familiar enough with the room to realize if anything may have been taken (you never know. I really didn't want to think about someone taking something from the room, but I would have been really upset if we had gotten home and be charged for something.). They made a note of it.
Food: We didn't eat here, but we DID have supper at Vrazel's. This was our first time at Vrazel's and it was great. I do have to say, though, that we walked in wearing blue jeans and although no one said anything or even looked at us weird, we should have really been dressed nicer. We both had fish, and everything was excellent!
Our experience is this: We would stay here again.
