Clean but dated hotel in need of refurbishment but, at the price, you can't really complain. Staff were helpful and efficient. The room was large and comfortable, with a great view but definitely in need of a lick of paint. We enjoyed the diner. Great, traditional American food and a good breakfast.

The Sands is my inexpensive place to stay when I'm up for the night. It's an ok Hotel with very cheap drinks pretty good food for the price. The rooms are out dated but clean but some of the room has some amazing views. I'll give the Sands 2 and a half stars and I only stay there if I... More

We reserved rooms at the Sands because of the price. The rooms are okay for the price. However, a lot of the staff really aren't friendly, the elevators are slow or broken, and there was never more than 2 employees (which were slow paced) at the registration desk and the lines were very long. The housekeeping staff were friendly and... More

This was a clean room for a good price. Starting to see upgrades to this ageing hotel. The water was hot when you needed it. New carpeting and wallpaper in the hallways. New comfortable bedding. No resort fees.

I stayed here ONLY because of the price, which was about the lowest I've paid for a "name" hotel for four years, and four years ago, I stayed here. Reno has seen better days and so has this hotel. I get the feeling that, among the hotels that have already closed in town, this one is hanging on by a... More

This is my second time at the Sands and you get what you pay for at the Sands. So everybody quit your complaining. If you want premium Hotel then pay premium. The first time we got a room in a run down part of the hotel but it is what I expected. It was a place to sleep and that... More

The price was great and the room was clean. They only cleaned my room once in my four night stay. There was no fridge, microwave and no phone book in the room. My sleep was poor, because the bed needed to be replaced.

Dated and used. room well appointed but three large spots on the carpet made me wonder where the filth ended. outside and inside showing lots years of use but little care. We will not stay here again and give the hotel a 1.5 rating.

All we needed was an inexpensive, basic, clean room and that's what we got. I requested a non smoking room at time of reservation and we had no problems with smoke at all. Check in was not as smooth as it could have been since the lady behind the desk didn't seem to understand what "Prepaid" means and started arguing... More
