Quick Trip.

The room is very big but outdated. However, there is a small vanity next to the bathroom. I would steer clear of the buffet even if you get it for free by getting a Player's Club card. I do enjoy this hotel because it is far enough from the strip that you do not get too many of the College students at night and during the weekend, but it is a close enough walk to the major strip. We could see everything from our room and do not feel we missed out. There was minimal noise and there were coupons given at check-in. Affordable and no frills. I did win a lot at the casino which was nice. This place probably has the loosest slots in the area.

Don't try the buffet at Sands Regency. 4 trays of food, not too appealing. Go to the Silver Legacy brunch instead. Lots of selection and it is some good exercise as you head back to your room or walk around Downtown Reno.

Although the carpets were worn and stained you get that at a lot of places. But the room was clean and large, The staff was very friendly. For the price it was a heck of a deal.

Save Money Here To Spend Elsewhere

Very basic, but a pretty good room. No coffeemaker, no refrigerator. Also there were no comforters on the bed, but there was an air conditioner. We were on the 14th floor so there was barely any noise. There was a small vanity adjacent to the bathroom door. The whole room was big, but the furniture was rather outdated. Light brown wooden pieces with dings and noticeable scratches. The floor was also extremely dirty. It was a 6 minute walk to Silver Legacy.

We're in the lobby...

Best part of this trip was some drunk lady looking at the elevator call button forever (these elevators are slooooow) and then asking if we're going down. I explained to her there is no down for us...we're in the lobby. She needed the 9th floor by the way.
