“An inexpensive place to stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is my second time at the Sands and you get what you pay for at the Sands. So everybody quit your complaining. If you want premium Hotel then pay premium. The first time we got a room in a run down part of the hotel but it is what I expected. It was a place to sleep and that is what I wanted.
This last time was much improved. I was in the empress tower and on the 16th floor. Very clean and quiet up there. I don't recall exactly I was in room 1693 or 1696 down at the end of the hall away from the ice machine and elevator.

Room Tip: Empress tower 16th floor

The price was great and the room was clean. They only cleaned my room once in my four night stay. There was no fridge, microwave and no phone book in the room. My sleep was poor, because the bed needed to be replaced.

Dated and used. room well appointed but three large spots on the carpet made me wonder where the filth ended. outside and inside showing lots years of use but little care. We will not stay here again and give the hotel a 1.5 rating.

All we needed was an inexpensive, basic, clean room and that's what we got. I requested a non smoking room at time of reservation and we had no problems with smoke at all.
Check in was not as smooth as it could have been since the lady behind the desk didn't seem to understand what "Prepaid" means and started arguing with us. The room was a bit dated and tired looking but perfectly fine considering the price we paid. The Hotel is located about a block away from the casinos on the main strip and easy to walk, we never felt unsafe returning at night.

Stayed there for 3 nights and more than likely will not stay there again. To put it bluntly, there is nothing spectacular about this place. i don't go out of my way to speak' Ill " of a place but it would be a stretch to say something nice. I guess I have come to expect the basics when traveling. ( Iron Board and IIron, in room coffee, a desk, a view. )
This is where the "locals" hang out. The location is on the edge of Downtown. really off the beaten path. The one saving Grace, The Housekeeping was Good.
Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money and stay at one of the Downtown locations

Room Tip: Go to a different Hotel and if you do stay here, do not stay near the service room or the elevator...

"Forget This Place"...unless you want a nice, clean room at an affordable place in a reasonably convenient location. A super low price through an online service made this a no-brainer for a solo trip needing only a pre-flight place to crash. Demand a non-smoking room and stay in your room unless you want to be in a cloud of smoke. The room décor is sparse but clean. The casino looks as if time has passed it by. I didn't try any of the food services. The transaction through the online service was flawless (my first time) and check-in was efficient. No complaints really, just the smoke warning. I'll stay there again when the price including all taxes is $23 again!

Room Tip: Beware of smoke.
