Event center is nice. Food is average at best, but is fine as there are small local restaurants within Bethlehem for better dining. The nightclub within the Casino is a very... read more

Very nice spot to come to either gamble eat or shop or all three! Casino is very nicely done, fairly new so you can expect more upscale everything. Only downside is the oppressive everpresent smoke ... We stick to the non smoking areas so we can breathe! Shopping mall is a very nice side attraction and the food is very... More

I live in the area and visit every few months. Fresh and new. Good selection of slots. Very good restaurants and fun shopping. Way better than Atlantic City, but about the same as most new casinos.

Casino busses in many from N.Y. City. Many who are pushy and just plain rude. Makes for a very unpleasant environment. The non smoking section is not protected very well and you will end up smelling like smoke when you leave. Food is not any better than average. Will only go there if requested to by a friend from out... More

Event center is nice. Food is average at best, but is fine as there are small local restaurants within Bethlehem for better dining. The nightclub within the Casino is a very nice venue, the patrons range in age/culture which is good, but it tends to not even get half full unless an event is going on, which can dampen the...

The casino itself is okay. It's large but split in half by smoking and non-smoking sections. I don't venture into the smoking area, so at the half size, it's pretty good. Bathrooms need more detail and care and more of them! They are always crowded and using them gives you the sense of being cattle entering and exiting stalls. Hand... More

Very bad first impression as it is located next to a steel mill which is falling down and terrible looking. Non smokers beware as the smoke smell in the casino was very strong. Food court area was dirty. Nobody cleaning tables , sweeping floors or cleaning trash while I was in the area. The event arena has small plastic chairs... More

We go to the Sands Casino at least once every five weeks. The casino is beautiful. The bathrooms are always clean. Love the shopping mall. Glad it isn't closer or I would be there more often. Said goodbye to Atlantic City after the Sands opened. Don't feel safe in AC. Feel safe at the Sands.

Similar experience to a small Vegas Casino but the slots were dated and the payouts much less than Nevada. Separate smoking and non-smoking areas but hard to tell which is which given the overall poor air quality.

Nice casino, different. The outside is the old steel mills, which gives it a crazy feel. Nice that it is attached to a mall with nice stores to walk around. Also, besides high end restaurants, you can get a quick cheap meal. We ate at Emerald's, very pricey but okay. The casino would be really nice if there was no... More

We always enjoy our tips to the sands casino. Nice shopping, nice places to eat, great music on the weekend. Event center is really nice, lots of gambling. Great car giveaway each month, great nightclubs and bars, love the tile in the bathrooms, always very clean
