Retro Chic

Its was worth the price; kind of 70's old hotel but Clean, Spacious and very friendly staff. it was just missing a bit of spark. Even though it was a really old, the hotel had a luxurious feel to it, they just need to embrace the retro motif and go forward a bit more. maybe include WiFi, or update the TV's. Really nice showers with deep bathtubs which lends to a Very good bath, that could also be something they could work with. P.S. stayed on the 6th floor the view was not too good but i had a feeling it would be much better higher up.

Great stay at an incredible price!

We stayed at Sands Regency after a lovely day at Soda Springs. The hotel is in the heart of Reno and at a walking distance from Circus Circus which is perfect for family trips. Very clean rooms and friendly staff.

enjoyed our stay and will stay again

We were invited to come to Reno for an overnight stay, to my sisters 70th birthday surprise party and we chose to stay at the Sands again. the location is very easy to get around Reno, close to the freeway close to restraunts close to Virginia st, everybody is so nice and Mels is so convient for a snack or a meal. It has encouraged us to visit Reno more often. Thanks in part to the Sands we had a lovely visit with friends and family. Thank you

sands regency reno

this is an old building and is in need of repair at every turn . that by itself would be tolerable , however I found the staff to be generally rude and not helpfull . my vehicle was vandalized in the covered parking garage and it will cost me 1400.00 to repair it . there is no security in their parking garage and they take no responsibility for anything that happens there .

Cheap Room in Reno

The walls were paper thin and could hear people in room next door & hallway. Stains on carpet. Lamps were loose, faucet handle loose, and room looked like it took some abuse. Front desk, doorman and cleaning group were very friendly.
