“friendly staff, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is my third time to the Sands this year. There are decent slot machines (my favorite) and I love having Mel's Diner available all night! It may not be as fancy as some of the other casinos, but the rooms are clean and easy to access with all the elevators. They also allow pets, which I think is great. The staff members make you feel welcome and the price is right!
I will definitely be back.

Older property with spunk! Newly redone tower! Just ask! Gaming area is older but service and staff are great!!! Best Beer specials in Reno! Close to free shuttle to UNR for football or Basketball! Fastest and nicest cocktail waitresses . I have stayed here at least 10 times and will repeat!

Room Tip: Close to University and Down town!

Well located for access to UNR and events/businesses in downtown Reno.
Large, nice, clean rooms, & quieter than I expected at a casino hotel. Nice staff.
Rooms could use a microwave, frig. & free internet access for business travelers that use the web frequently.
An option for stronger, higher-quality coffee would be nice at hotel restaurants.

We really enjoyed our room here. For under $30, the bed and linens were nice, and the decor, although obviously old, was in good shape. It was clean and comfortable and the amenities were adequate. I prefer this to spending a bunch of money for a room in Reno. The bartenders here are a hoot. Centrally located, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Hope the Sands doesn't change. We will definitely be back.

Great place. The floor they put the pets on looked a little dated. The only thing that I remember about the room was there was a small, who cares, wear spot right as you come in the door. It looked like maybe somebodies dog didn't like being left alone and scratched the carpet.

The room was clean without smells or other problems. The casino is nice the food is okay, I've stayed there before when in town and it will continue to be my number one choice when staying in Reno.

The only comment I do have is we are truck drivers. There is plenty of room to park a tractor, and RV if that's the way you roll, but, the first time I stayed there I took my trailer. I was in and out, with effort, but if you are a bobtail you shouldn't have a problem at any time. They do have a special place for trucks, RVs and people with trailers.

Room Tip: We had a great view of the roof top AC unit. (sarcasm). They put all the pets on one floor and we w...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

the sands isn't exactly luxurious, but its good if you're on a budget. i usually stay here after snowboarding at Northstar (it's about a 40minute drive).

i was in the Empress tower, a newly renovated one--lucky, i guess. rooms are GIANT, with floor-to-ceiling windows. beds are veeerrrryyy comfortable, and i didn't hear much noise surrounding me. was i there on a slower night? cable channels are adequate.

i usually stay here when i'm traveling solo, because you can't beat the price!

the fitness center, jacuzzi and steamroom are pretty good. usually not very crowded.

parking is free, and easily accessible. if you're there in the winter, it gets VERY cold at night--you're likely to find lotsa frost on your car windshield in the morning.
