Well, this was definitely a $45 room. To say that it is old, run down, smelly, and gross is being kind. Everything inside the room was extremely outdated, fairly filthy and reeked of cigarette smoke. I didn't have high expectations, but this place went well below what I had anticipated. We could not get the room cooled down after two... More

While the hotel room itself was kind of sweet in a kitschy way, and had a great view of the mountains to the west, the place as a whole had a fairly low-class feel to it. The layout is confusing and it was hard to maneuver luggage from the car to the elevator to the room. Bell desk was unresponsive... More

This is a fairly old hotel but the rooms were very modern, much nicer then we expected when we checked in. The variety of slots were a little dated, and the payouts were very stingy, even on the bonuses did not pay out well. Over all for the money the hotel was an excellent buy.

We stayed here fathers day weekend 2015. We drove from Portland Or after work Thursday and arrived about 11:30 am friday. Very tired, we thought we'd go check in just in case a room was available right away. The gal, without asking for our name/confirm # said that check in time was 3. To pass time, we found a machine...

The Sands is your average hotel with average amenities for a casino. The rooms and fixtures need some updating and the beds were firm for us. Gambling was good; slots paid enough o keep you playing. It is an easy walk to other surrounding casinos and restaurants. There are better hotel/casinos in Reno, but for the price, it's ok.

This property is showing its age! Small as these casino/hotels go. Mel's diner is attached and the place to eat. The buffet is Chinese food with one special meat each night..like prime rib. Worst food and selection I've ever had at a buffet. Slot machines were old. We walked to Harrahs and wished we would have stayed there. We were... More

We stayed at the Sands Three times and will never give them another opportunity to ruin any more vacations. The first stay we had there the pool was empty and in June it is nice to take a dip. The wait staff in the Casino was rude and absolutely not worth the time it would take to reach in my... More
