Sands Casino Resort
Ranked #8 of 14 Hotels in Bethlehem
Reviewed 30 October 2011

The check-in area looks like an office. The hotel and casino are located in the old steel factory area. The room is clean and the TV is great. The shower does not have good lighting and there is no tub. There are no ledges or areas to place anything in the shower. Don't even try to shave your legs in there !You have to insert your room card for electricity, heat or air conditioning, so ask for an extra card for this purpose. The garbage cans don't have plastic bags. The casino is small; go for the bus trip; save your money on the room. There are no other motels close to the casino. The place looks better on the internet than it does in reality !

We booked a Hotel room for a Tuesday Night. It was our first visit to Sands Casino and Hotel in Bethleham, PA. We had dinner at the Italian Resturant.
The food was delicious and service was excellence
Our room was luxurious and very comfortable.
The Casino is huge and we liked it had a no smoking section. We played the
slots and table games and walked away a winner.The staff was very friendly.
We felt very safe here with the large Security staff and measures the Sand's
takes to keep guest safe. We're coming back!

This is a mixed review because there are some hits and misses. The hits: it's a new, modern looking hotel with some great modern amenities such as the large flat screen TV's with HD channels. Service was very friendly and efficient. The king bed was very comfortable. And the location is the big plus -- attached to modern casino, easy walking distance to Artsfest / Musicfest, and surrounded by the history of the Bethlehem Steel complex. However there are some clear opportunities for improvement, especially given the resort-like weekend rates. The rooms are large but the furnishings are sparse -- no table, no mini-fridge, just one chair. Breakfast was not fitting a hotel that is trying to be higher class /higher price, and it was picked empty (including the coffee) by 10:40 despite claiming hours until 11:00. This facility and location have a lot of promise, the casino itself was a great experience, but the hotel does not deliver enough to be given a top rating.

Who knew! As we were looking for this place I kept saying we must have missed a turn because all I see is an abandoned plant/distillery, but then the sign appeared. SANDS CASINO & RESORT. We turned in and WOW. We stayed in the uber modern hotel and me being a hotel snob was quite pleased! Very impressed with the decor and contemporary feel. Totally felt like I was in a 5 star property. If you have the loot to get a suite - may I say gorgeous! We stayed in a regular room, but attended a bday party in one of the suites. As for the casino I guess its pretty cool, but I don't gamble. We ate at the food court area. Aside from being expensive the food was pretty good. Didn't have a chance to check out any of the restaurants.

Our company put us up here for a business meeting. It was wonderful The rooms are beautiful. We arrived by noon and there was no fuss with an early check in. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional. Unlike casinos in Las Vegas.. they have three computers to use in the lobby for printing boarding passes or anything else you may need. Great continental breakfast. Casino is nice. Would recommend it to anyone as a weekend getaway as it was really nice.
