Had a great time. It started with Black Jack Tournament and ended with a Super Bowl Party. The room was very clean and well equipped. The Slots were very good to me. The Table games were at an good minimum bet,

Beds were not comfy at all. First room had water all over the bathroom from a leaky pipe. We were switched rooms and the staff was pleasant. The rooms are quite run down, and you really get what you pay for. Not sure what the standards are in Reno, but a new mattress and a deep clean would help immensely.

My boyfriend was over charged $77. The rude attendants didn't honor my boyfriends promotion he received in his email. We brought attention to manager in the morning she refunded him $77 & gave me the "how was your visit" card. Very rude 2 attendants at front desk! Said no rooms available on our friends floor (friends saw empty rooms on...

We were snowed in and needed a cheap room to crash in forca couple of hours. This place is cheap and old. The first room didnt have a working heater so we switched rooms. The room was clean and spacious. Good enough for what we needed.

There are many nice hotels to stay in Reno, Nevada, The Sands Regency is NOT one of them. We wanted to see the New Year's fireworks in Reno (which are fantastic) and were looking for a decent value in a place to stay. We've traveled a lot over the years and this is one of the worst hotel experiences we've...

The food here was great. The rooms were very worn and need updating. For us it was in just the right location. The employees were very friendly and helpful. We will go back but maybe we will select somewhere else next time.

Stayed 4 nights at the Sands. Overall pleased with the property. Only draw backs from my perspective are No indoor Pool/ Spa, Lack of High Definenition TV in rooms. But then again it is a Budget Conscious Hotel property.

Blankets don't come up to your face and if they did they wouldn't cover your feet. What am I saying? What I should be saying is 'Where are the blankets?" The blankets are so thin you might as well call them sheets. No hotel directory in any of the drawers. Couldn't find or decide where to go or what to...

Christmas was spent here and we (family of 4) had a nice time. The hotel first off is pet friendly and we brought a pet. It was busy, but not overly crowded, the prices were very nice and the food was good. The down size was that one of the elvevators was out of order and it caused a bit...
