Sands Bethlehem is great! It is very fun, safe, clean, entertaining, and just right for me in every way. I’ve always had a pleasant experience all the way around at Sands. The staff is friendly, competent, helpful, and inviting. I enjoy everything from the food...More

The penny machines are great and always look for a digital one that has music and a video to have a lot of fun. My favorite Machine is the Michael Jackson one. When you hit a bonus he sings and dances on the above screen... More

Leelanau Sands Casino and Lodge....anyone stayed here? (4 Replies)
We are considering spending a weekend at this lodge. We are visiting friends in the immediate area and they offer cheap rates-this will be in the height of summer. So, I am left wondering what the rooms are like? We stayed here many years ago and it wasn't a bad little place then, but am wondering if time has done its effect on the place. Thanks for any info.

Poker players--do not leave AC for the PA casinos! (17 Replies)
As a last minute decision, to escape the oppressive heat, we decided to escape to a casino for a few hours in the afternoon. Since the Sands Bethlehem kept advertising that they now had tables and were closer in distance than AC, we decided to give it a try since we were limited in time. What a mistake! They don't have a poker "room" but a sectioned off area on the gaming floor. That didn't really concern us, but we never saw such a long waiting list for 1-2 Texas Hold'em! When we arrived at...More

I could see where you may have been disappointed, but last week was the first official week of table games in PA. I would not expect it to be anything but crowded and a long wait. In Atlantic City, you can go to any casino to play table games (and many are in walking distance of each other), so, of course, there should never be a wait. I live about 20 minutes from a casino, and you can bet that I will not drive over an hour to play and lose my money when I can do it so close to home.
What is Sands Casino in Bethlehem like? (30 Replies)
I'd love to read some reviews of this new casino from those of you who have been there. Do they offer table games? Do they have a poker room? And if you're from NYC like me, is it really only an hour and a half drive?

My husband and I went to the new Sands last Sunday morning. I like the layout of the casino, with the high ceilings and wide aisles. Drinks are free(please tip), but alcohol is only served from 11am till I think 2am, however, they are not free at the VP bar. I found cocktail service to be very good, but it was still early in the day. Don't know what its like at night or weekends. There is a food court that has separate stations, one serves pizza/cheesesteaks, another has sushi, then there...More
