Older hotel, but nicely upgraded rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't go there"
The room was substandard. The table was so beat up I couldn't even do my evening paperwork at it. The carpet was threadbare and stained. The bathtub drain wouldn't stay open for water to drain during a shower; we had to shove the little complementary shampoo tube under it to keep it open. I travel a lot and book through hotels.com and this was a room […] I earned by booking so many nights through them. My enjoyment of a good room at the Sands could have been good word-of-mouth advertising for them, but now they will only get negative reports from me and I will never stay there again.

"Great value for the money."
Looks dumpy but could not be more comfortable. Biggest plus is the quiet ventilation system with wall thermostat. Clean and roomy. You could spend much more money and not be as comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A little dated. Great value for price. Very close to UNR.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was somewhat disappointed when I got to my room. It smelled really bad, like B.O. I immediately turned on the air and sprayed the entire room with my perfume. I just couldn't get past the smell, which made my stay a little uncomfortable. Other than that, it's just a basic room, bed, tv, table, chairs, and bathroom. It was close to the main strip which […] is where we hung out most of the time. Next time I will spend the extra cash to stay in a nicer room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a big disappointment"
after years of staying at other locations I thought I'd stay in the heart of the action in Reno so I thought I'd stay in downtown. I could not have made a worse decision than the Sands. the rooms smelled horribly, my 'king' room was a double, the hotel and casino had NO air filtration and the casino was surrounded by pimps and transients. uggghhh just […] don't.

"Stunk of tobacco smoke"
The room, the casino area, and the entire hotel stunk of tobacco smoke.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Sands: Life 3 blocks from the Reno Strip"
I was surprised by the inattention to detail at the Hotel. The bartender in the Sports bar sits in a chair and talks to her friends with little attention to her other customers. There is a strange brew of people that frequent this Casino. I wondered if there were drug deals going down.When i checked in, the room was not ready after receiving the key […] . I had to ask for soap & shampoo for the room. They did change my room after 1 night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very Friendly. BIG Clean Room. Easy Parking."
The Sands is an older hotel which could use some upgrades. It's a nice pleasant stay but not fancy. The rooms are really big and clean and everything worked great. Love the shower pressure and wi-fi and easy parking on the street level and friendly staff. Great views of the downtown area and only two easy block walk to the ElDorado.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My latest Stay"
Was okGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beds were comfortable, There was no table, even though the chairs were there. There was no vanity chair - needs renovated. Probably will not stay at this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price....."
Sands is always good for a cheap stay, without feeling like your in a low budget hotel...the price is always consistent unless there's a big event going on and the service from the staff is always good!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
It was nice the price for goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our room didn't have adequate electrical outlets near the bed to accommodate my husband's CPat machine. We inquired about getting an extension cord and we were promptly pointed in the direction of the nearest store to purchase one. On a different note, their dinner buffet left a lot be desired... everyone in my party left hungry because of the poor […] quality of food and the fact that it was cold.

The Sands was a good option for our family. We have 5 children so we exceed the occupancy limits and must get 2 rooms. The price was right, the beds comfy, the kids loved the pool and we enjoyed our stay! It was WAAAAAY better than the Motel 6 we stayed in!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"okay - the price is right"
room could be cleaner - don't understand why carpets can't be cleaned to rid the stains from them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awful place . . ."
Never again . . .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reno is Depressing!"
The only good thing about this stay was the price. The whole place is a giant ashtray. We were disappointed that the pool is across the parking lot. The hot tub was lime green, pretty sure it was not in honor of St. Patrick, as we were there in August! The rooms are comfortable and the interaction we had with the cleaning staff was good. They seem like […] very good people. While the hotel is an ashtray, our room did not smell like smoke and that made us very happy. The room was comfortable and the AC works very well! Parking is poor and problematic if you drive anything larger than a Yugo, after walking the city, I'm pretty sure that many of the people of Reno still drive Yugo's.

Had a great time and the staff was great .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room rug was dirty ,the faucet did not work ,shower faucet kept going down to hot had to hold it to take a shower. Air condition did not work well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall it was satisfactory. Just what a hotel should be.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Live and learn."
Very disappointed. Light between beds did not work. No wash cloths in bathroom. No laundry bag. Hotel employees are nice enough.....if you can understand them. This is my first and last stay at the Sands.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No refrigerator, coffee maker or iron/board. Good location for the price. Buffet is not very good, eat somewhere elseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"stay away ,dont stay here its about a 1 star"
the carpet in my room was really gross,the casino was really smokey, the restaurant mels was awesome food and serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is located within walking distance of the downtown area which was very convenient. It is one of the older hotels that could use some updating. The towels are thin and the bathroom fixtures need replacing.The bed and pillows are very good. This hotel has restaurants on site that are reasonable and serve a variety of food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In downtown Reno."
Location and the swimming pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Within walking distance of the strip. Good value"
Clean and comfortable room. There was a shortage of towels daily. The housekeeping staff did a wonderful job with the room and getting clean towels. The restaurants in the hotel were horrible. Eat somewhere else. Good location near the strip. Good value for your money. I would come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I didn't feel safe staying here. The drunk couple in the room next to us kept fighting and we had to call security. The casino and the immediate area made me keep looking over my shoulder. I stayed in my room after 10:00.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Slept great and drank good"
Awesome prices at the bar ($1.49 beers!) and super comfortable bed to lay down at night. I would recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty good for hot august nights"
The best thing about it was that if you had a classic car they gave you private parking with the other classic cars, so you knew your car was safe!! People were pretty nice there overall, like that is just down the street from the other casinos but is half the price this time of year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed for two nights, nice place, would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to downtown Reno"
was just ok for a last minute booking. It was Hot August nights so the better hotels were booked or too dam expensive for RENO!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Summer Getaway!"
Was an excellent place to stay during Hot August Nights!! I only had 1 complaint that the free wi-fi was only in the pool area (in the heat) wi-fi in the rooms was for a fee even though I was told there was not a fee!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"not what i expected"
Our room was outdated and ugly. Green carpet, dark blue wall paper on one wall and red drapes. There was not exhaust fan in the bathroom and carpet in hallways was questionable. I am short and could touch the ceilings in the hallway. One of the elevators smelled like stinky feet. I will never stay there again. The only good thing was Mels Diner right […] there at the Hotel.

I was not told of the $75 pet fee........the room was filthy with pet stains all over the carpet......I would never stay there again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Downhill........Genuine Hotels.com guest review
reasonable rates and close to downtown.worth the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"walking distance o other casinos"
The check in line only had 2 clerks for Saturday afternoon checkin. Not to good; however the clerk was nice and helpful. The elevators must be old as they are very, very slow. Stops at every floor even if no one has p;ushed button and are waiting at that floor. No fun.The caret in the hallway (once you got off elevotor) were filthy, and looked as if […] someone had spilled oil or something crude on it and never cleaned up. Was nasty looking. The carpet in our room (on 7th floor) was REALLY dirty, and had many spots on it as well We will not stay there again............ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for the money, but I've stayed better for less."
Came for just one night. Hotel lobby and Casino was average. The room was clean but a bit worn. There was new-ish furniture but the bathroom counter was that fake granite Formica type and had wear and tear. Staff was friendly and very personal. Hallways had coffee stains on the rugs everywhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"owner of Angelquilters"
Very nice room for the excellent price we got. My son and I were very surprised for the price. We loved Mel's Diner, as well as that wonderful taco place in your casino. We stayed there on the way to Colorado and then our air compressor went out on our big box truck and it quickly became a sauna, sew we rented another room on the way home, only for […] 6 hours, but that gave us time to eat and take a little nap and most of all for the sun to go down and for it to cool down outside! Sew thank you for that great price on hotel. com!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very cheap on hotels dot com so can't complain"
If i had to pay more I would specify the flaws but total was 34 a night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"An Oasis at the Sands"
I may have met the love of my life at the slot machines.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good basic rooms. service is a standout."
The hotel needs some freshening, but the front desk staff and all services personnel treated us like a 5 star hotel.Would recommend for clean,comfortable, and great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to downtown Reno and sight-seeing"
The hotel is convenient to downtown Reno sites. It was comfortable for me and being a chess player, it hosts a couple of major chess tournaments a year. For area sight-seeing it is an hour or so from Lake TahoeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dirty, run-down and seedy"
Stayed overnight on the way to CA. Glad it was only one night. Room smelled like urine and was told it was the only two queen, non-smoking room available. Mystery stains on the carpet, dirty bathroom, wouldn't let my kids touch the glasses. Gross, gross, gross. In a rundown part of town. Got here at 10 pm and had to wait 20 minutes to check in. Never […] again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
