Sands Regency Casino Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff was rude. The bed was terrible and the buffet was a complete waste of money. They didn't advertise it was seafood only and NOTHING else. We don't eat seafood. When checking out she never even looked up from her computer and acted like I bothered her. I DO NOT recommend this hotel! I will not be going back!

Someplace I'll never go again. I did win $10 though. There are too many hotels and casinos in Reno to settle on price. Lesson learned...

Not familiar with the area so was very disappointed by the smokey environment. The non-smoking room was smokey! We checked out and went to The Peppermill which was fantastic! I lost 20 bucks in the machine for bottled water and they wouldn't reimburse me.

My room was 413, next to elevators. The room was clean and roomy. My complaint was that I could hear the elevator all night long. Hotel was sold out so they couldn't reassign me and they didn't offer any options.

The hotel is old, and needs a renovation badly. Their ventilation system is poor, so the entire place including the non smoking areas have that stench from cigarettes. My wife and daughter woke up with hair smelling like smoke in non smoking room, on a non smoking floor. The Copa restaurant is fantastic, good prices, excellent service and great food. The buffet was closed at 9pm when we returned from the volleyball tournament and so was Copa, so all that was left to eat at was the fast food style Mexican restaurant and Mels. We chose Mels, that was a mistake. The staff was very friendly the entire stay. My daughter did notice that inside the HVAC vent, there was an unopened condom sitting inside it, on the bright side at least it was not opened.

I reserved a room with a king bed. Upon arrival they told me there was none available. They asked me if it was ok they put me in a room with 2 queens. I obviously said yes since I didn't have a choice. In my first 10 minutes of being in the room, I hear loud Harley motorcycles coming and going. When I looked out the window I see the entire roof of the parking lot was filled motorcycles. Probably over a hundred of them. I immediately went back to the front desk and asked to be put on the other side of the building so I wouldn't be bothered overnight or early in the morning. The front desk staff said they can't do any room swaps because the hotel is full. If the noise becomes too bothersome then I should let them know and they will try to do something. It ended up being quiet the first night (Friday) and I got a full night of sleep. However on Sunday morning, the motorcycle gang started leaving around just before 7am. The motorcycle rumbling didn't stop until 10am (when I planned to get up). Some of their motorcycles were so loud that the curtain rod was rattling. I was so annoyed because every time I would fall back asleep, I would be woken up again. I ended up only sleeping 5 hours. I had a feeling it was going to be a problem and was disappointed the hotel didn't grant my request to move. Otherwise the room was very clean. My other issue at the hotel was the fact I had to wait for bell desk service every time for at least 15 mins and over 20 the last time.

waiting more than 20 min for our room, parking lot full, without a coffee maker in the room and being charged again for a prepaid reservation.

Comfortable room but as you step out in the hallway even on the 17th floor, you can feel the smoke.

Nice short stay, not all facilities were open due to the day of week.

We've stayed here several times before, and the buffet upstairs was very good this time. Previously, the prime rib was barely acceptable, being almost completely well-done and dry. The hot foods set-up was also sloppy and looked unappetizing. The experience this time was a 180 degree turnaround. The other eating places were very good also.

Bed bugs found, refused to give me a refund. Management was so rude such an inconvenience and just really was immune to hearing complaints of infestation.

Check in and check out was good. Room was clean. Older facilities but overall my stay was good. I got a non smoking room but I believe the neighbors were smoking marijuana as it was really strong when we walked outside our room. Housekeeping was very nice. The restaurants we tried were good also.

We enjoyed our stay disappointed you don't offer Keno.

No coffee machine in the rooms, poor ventilation, showers were the best, you actually had water

Pros: The hotel is OK, low cost, plenty of parking, food at Mel's is very good. Cons: They allow indoor smoking. Rooms near elevators are noisy.

staff was rude and uninformed. had to pay $75 deposit and wait 45 minutes to get it back after I checked out

Heater was too noisy to leave on during the night. I brought my own blanket. No in room coffee.

As an avid snowboarder I was looking for a place close to i-80 with easy access to all the nearby resorts. If that is your only ask and you don't care much for the hotel itself, the place delivers. The room was just okay, very very basic and similar to what you would get at a Motel 6 chain or similar. One unusual thing -- no coffee machine in the room, so if you want to make some tea or coffee you have to visit a coffee shop downstairs. The one negative thing that easily stands out form the rest has got to be the tobacco smell. The place smells like a tobacco factory so if you don't smoke, keep that in mind.

Decent comfort and quiet, yet close to busy casinos of the BigThree. Rooms very adequate with parking just a hop to casino and rooms. Eating places are good, loved the Mexican and cabana for quick lighter meals. Buffet on 2nd floor just average, but doesn't empty your wallet.

Room is clean, has good view and walking distance (1 block) to Taipei 101 Restaurant.
