Easy to find, spacious indoor parking, at any level easy, convenient entrance to the casino. I limit myself to slots (no understanding of cards at all) so I go for that and there are a ton of them. Nice thing is they range from 1 cent on up. I worked a 2 cent machine up the $90 before cashing out... More

My pregnant wife and I decided to have a nice day out before the baby arrived to have a nice mean and enjoy some gaming on a nice weekend day. What we experienced was really disheartening: 1. "No Smoking" means nothing to the SANDS There is a large and clearly marked no smoking area. This area was densely packed with... More

Too smoky for me. We went there last Thursday night and walked in at the outlet area. Immediately my eyes nose and throat were burning. The cloud of tobacco smoke was very thick. We found similar conditions in other PA casinos in the Pocono area. Yes they do have a "NO Smoking" section but trying to get to it you... More

We were there for literally 5 minutes. Tried a poker slot machine, won $500, cashed out and enjoyed the rest of our night in Bethlehem. Didn't like the smoking, but it's a casino so...

The Sands is close to downtown, which is convenient, plus the attached outlets makes it a nice place to spend a few hours. They had a good selection of games and we didn't have any issues finding open machines. I felt like the payouts were comparable to Hollywood Casino. They have a good variety of restaurant options. We ate at... More

The casino is easily located off the highway. Large bus terminal and plenty of parking for vehicles. I went with a group on a bus and once arrived we all received a $30 slot card and a $5 meal voucher. Inside, staff was friendly, walking servers were frequently offering free drinks for tips, and slot machines from one cent and... More

Smokey, expensive drinks, and horrible gambling at the poker machines. I regularly go to casinos to play poker machines, the sands by far is the worst. Gambling money does not last long at all. A beer at the bar is $8.00 and a $20 bill in the machine lasts less than 5 minutes.

Rooms were nice and clean, well decorated and comfortable. The check in was fast but make sure you have a license with your CC otherwise you can't check in. I liked what they did but for a none smoker it unbearable.
