Best hotel in Reno

The staff is friendly the food is great and reasonable except for Copa and the Buffet. Mels dinner has the greatest steak and eggs in town. The Bell Hops are fun and if you take the time to know them they will help you have fun in Reno.

A little yucky but the price is right

I stayed here for 2 nights not to gamble but because I needed a budget option while staying in Reno. The Sands fit the bill on that count. The room - and staff - were really a mixed bag. The room was pretty shabby and stained, but the bed was quite comfortable, and I had a great view out the window. Some of the staff were real sweetie pies, in particular the shuttle drivers and bell hops and one of the wait staff, but some of the other staff were cold and jaded, and one staff person in the restaurant gave me the wrong change - not mistakenly, it appeared. The housekeepers forgot to make my bed although I requested it. It was difficult to access drinking water as the machines were not accepting dollar bills. A treat this isn't. But a tolerable and cheap housing option perhaps.

Adequate For The Money

Hotel was very reasonable, so I find it difficult to complain. I got what I paid for and realize it was also an older hotel, too. The room could use some freshening up....wallpaper in the bathroom area was peeling, particularly in the shower area. The television was small and older style (not a flat screen). The purpose of my trip was to visit the area for considering a permanent move. The hotel was an easy 2-3 blocks to the River Walk area where you can enjoy an array of restaurants, shops and relaxation. I would stay here again since I'm on a tight budget and the location is ideal for downtown activities.

Old Mainstay

I like this hotel because it's fun, near the other casinos, and less expensive than the other casinos. I don't stay here to stay in the room, but it completely serves the purpose that I am looking for.

Good place to spend the nighttimes

Pleasant and quiet. Located close to National Bowling Stadium where I was bowling in the National Tournament. Shuttles back and forth from the stadium were very convenient. Shuttles back and forth from the airport were also convenient. There was nothing bad I could say about my short stay.
