    Terrible Internet service

    There were a few things I didn't like about this hotel. First, the parking lot was quite crowded. Then you had to wander way back into the casino to find the check-in desk. It took a long time to get checked in. The elevators are pretty decrepit. The room was fine but the Internet was terrible.

    A cheap hotel that allows dogs

    It costs us only $40 a night with additional $15 per night for the dog but an EARPLUG is a must for a light sleeper. A good hotel just for 1 or 2 nights

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Sands Regency Casino Hotel Reno

    Reno Business Trip


    Was in Reno in September, 2003 and stayed 5 nights at the Sands Regency. The room was clean and comfortable, with a fantastic 14th floor view of downtown. Self-parking was convienent in the garage. The shower was powerful, but took about 10 minutes in the early evening to get warmed up. In the morning, the shower was warm right away. The biggest downside to the room was the noise from the trains running by the hotel. It seemed that every couple of hours a train goes through and blasts a whistle at every intersection. I turned up the fan on the AC to high, and that helped short term, but it automatically kicks off after 15 minutes or so. Needless to say, I didn't get much sound sleep.The casino was small but friendly. I did OK on the slots other machines. Lots of nickel machines abound. The restaurants overall were adequate. The Tony Romas was tasty, the Italian Buffet was pretty good for the price, and Mel's was just OK (not great).Next business trip I'm going to stay elsewhere away from the downtown. I just couldn't enough sleep with all of those trains going by.

    A nice place


    Nice location, easy and free parking. Room was nice, A/C adjustable, quiet Empress Tower casino very noisy, but the Dynasty tower casino was less noisy. Didnt hear any slots paying jackpots Food availability was excellent..Antonio's Italian Buffet especially good..$9.95 for all you can eat. Good breakfast at Mel's The staff is helpful and friendly

    NOT Soundproof!


    I do not recommend this property to anyone. We got a great rate from Expedia but we were soon to find out why. There was a 1.5" gap from the bottom of the hotel room door to the floor. The noise from the hallway traveled in our room continually, all night long. We tried, unsuccessfully, to shove towels under the gap but the sound was still magnified. Add to this, the hotel is not on the main drag so you are in for a walk if you want to visit any of the finer casinos in Reno. The only good thing was the coffee shop. The food was great every time we ate there. Service in the hotel rates "okay" but we have had better rooms and service at Circus Circus. We'll stay there in the future.

    Loud Trains & Whistles


    No coffee maker, iron or ironing board in room.Be sure to bring a good set of ear plugs as the hotel is right next to train tracks and they run all hours of the night and blow their whistles prior to crossing any intersection, which there are a lot of by the Sands.If you are a non-smoker then arrange for someone else to check in for you as gaming machines are right next to the registration desk and you will choke on the thick second-hand smoke emitted by patrons using the machines.Other than the above, the rooms were nice, clean and well worth the price. Management did move me to another room over Mel's Dinner after I complained of the trains the first night, which helped considerably

    We're going back


    We've stayed at the Sands several times over that last 6 or 8 years and even tho we've occasionally tried another hotel/casino, we always come back to the Sands. The people are friendly, the food good, the gaming fun and accomodations reasonable. In fact, we'll be back in just a few days to celebrate our wedding anniversary.



    I needed a place to stay for the weekend but i didnt have a lot of money to spend on a hotel that I would hardly use so I found The Sands to be one of the cheapest. When I got to my room and turned on the lights i was shocked on how nice it was and how big the room was, it was nothing like i was expecting. I ended up staying in the room most of the trip and enjoyed every minute of it and i plan to stay there from now on.

    The Sands is the best hotel in Reno!


    Staying in downtown Reno is really a pleasure. It's like taking a step back in time. The Sands is a very welcoming place. Their rooms are incredibly spacious and immaculate! The staff is prompt and happy to help you. When gambling, you are always able to find tables available and the game you want. I highly recommend this casino. You really can't find one that's better. Even the casinos that are glitzy can't offer this kind of class and prestige. Try it! You won't be disappointed!

    No Coffee!


    Nice room, but exhust fan in bathroom wasn't working, and wish we had coffee pot in the room as we need coffee first thing in the morning, also was disappointed that I was not told that there was a $50.00 dollar deposit on phone use when I checked in. I was already in my pj's when I deceided to use the pnone, what a surprise, I only wanted to call collect.. Slots were too tight. I didn't see any winners.

    Can't go wrong!


    We have stayed at the sands many times over the last few years and have had a wonderful time every time. The rooms are clean, very large and very comfortable. One plus, is when we check in early,(10am), we always get our room instead of having to wait until 3pm check-in. There's lots of good food and all the other casinos are in close walking range. We always get our room for about 25 dollars a night. This place can't be beat!

    Gotta love it


    A group of us have stayed at the Sands in Reno several times over the past few years. We've always had a great time. The rooms are big, clean and modern, the casino is adequate if not large with lots of slot machines, the cocktail waitresses are prompt and cheerful and the hotel service is really good. We feel at home here and are planning our next stay next week.

    We staan weer heel vroeg op. Niet omdat we dat altijd doen, maar de jet lag maakt dat we klaarwakker zijn op tijden dat we normaal gesproken ons nog eens omdraaien. Op zich is het wel gunstig, we vertrekken weer vroeg en hopen zo rush hour te ontlopen. Als we al een file zien, staat hij gelukkig aan de andere kant. Zonder problemen rijden we San …

    I have virtually no notes on this day. In fact of all the notes I've made in the ten months I’ve spent travelling over the last few years this is the one that has the absolute least ever. I can’t even properly remember anything that happened this day. My assumption is we woke up and had breakfast around the pool again. We then laid …

    This is going to be a nice easy blog to write. Today we relaxed. It sounds stupid to some extent that we need to relax considering we are effectively permanently on holiday but the constant moving and driving and ****** motels has led to us just wanting a couple of days of 'luxury' and ideally sun.

    We left the Motel 6 early and drove to …

    ... I am not only talking about rocks and boulders, but some of these pieces are as big as a house. And some have fallen into the river bed below. One part of the road has been blocked for years where a rock slide destroyed it and temporary bridges had to be built to move traffic around it. They are still working on it, as they were three years ago.

Rode 330 miles today,most of it beautiful. Hope they figure out what's wrong quickly tomorrow. An hour of trying late today produced no results. As soon as we can we'll be headed north to ...
