Recently returned from a 7 night stay at the Sands. Our trip occurred during Reno's Hot August Nights, although we werent exhibitors. The hotel is being renovated and does show its age, however the staff was friendly, maid service was prompt and courteous. We stayed in the Regency tower and our only gripe was the 3/4 inch space under the entry door. It allowed hallway noise to echo into your room at all hours of the night. It was a complaint, but for the price (35-120) per nite and considering it is a CASINO hotel and a major party weekend it wouldnt discourage us from staying there again.
It is very convenient to all the downtown casinos, and easy traveling distance to Peppermill and Atlantis.
About 5 minutes from the airport if not Rush Hour or construction.
In closing,,if you are looking for a plush resort..go somewhere else. But if you want a place to stay..invest some money in slot machines, and have easy access to the beautiful Lake Tahoe region, then give the Sands a try.
PS the Tony Romas inside the casino is not quite the quality of the stand alone ones but not bad for the convenience.
