We went on Seafood night:  the best part was the salad bar and even that was limited.  Entrees were not memorable and the clam chowder was lukewarm.  They made a big deal about warming it up for me.  It was embarrassing.  Even with the 1/2 price Val Pack coupon it's not worth it!

With the BOGO coupons in ValPak, you can't beat buffet dinner for 2 for under $15 with tax & tip, but if you are expecting 5 different cuisines with 10+ entrees/sides each, you will be disappointed. Think Good food at a Good price, not great food/variety for cheap.

It is a small buffet in a couple relatively small rooms. Total 8 or so entrees, 4 or 5 sides,

Cook to order steak and baked potato Sat. was pretty good. BBQ pulled pork, carved turkey, Fried Chicken and teriyaki pork chops were all good. Catfish and Enchiladas were OK, we did not have the Pasta.  

Salad bar is adequate, but again, don't expect 100s of topping choices. Think Round Tableish.

For dessert, cake and cookies were so so, but soft serve was better than many more expensive buffets. 4 kinds of sprinkles for the kids, granola, chocolate chips, Oreo crumbs and strawberry, chocolate and caramel/butterscotch toppings and whipped cream.

I'm surprised there are only 2 reviews for the Sands Buffet so far.

I stayed at the Sands for Sunday and Monday night, and ate at the buffet on both nights.  The Yelp menu may be outdated since Sunday was prime rib night and Monday was Asian night when I went in March 2013.  This buffet only serves dinner, not breakfast or lunch.

The buffet really isn't very big, its only 2 counters long, plus a dessert table.  Its definitely not one of the "fantasy" type buffets that offer every dish imaginable that you would see in 4 star casinos and hotels in Vegas.

Prime rib night was very good, the prime rib was thick, juicy, and meaty, with a delicious horseradish sauce.  The salad bar was not impressive, its basically your typical pizza buffet salad bar, it only has an iceberg blend, it doesn't even have baby spinach blend which is my preferred salad.  Other dishes I tried were the fried ravioli- its your basic frozen cheese ravioli in sauce. The cold mushrooms- cold mushrooms in sauce with red onion, it was a good cold vegetable dish.  Tilapia with cilantro- it was a boring tasteless fish dish.   Mashed potatoes- good creamy mashed potatoes with gravy to go alongside the prime rib.  Chicken wings-  they were in a tasty zesty Asian sauce.

Monday was Asian night- it was pretty apparent that the chefs did not know how to cook Asian cuisine, there really was nothing Asian about it, every dish was a fast food style Asian-America dish.  The orange chicken was embarrassing, it was literally chicken nuggets soaked in an orange sauce,  that told me everything I needed to know about the "Asian" night.  The rest of the dishes were overly sugary sweet and sour pork, bland pad thai, and other uninspiring "Asian" dishes, there was not even any sushi rolls.

The deserts both nights were the same, the fruit and custard cups were a pleasant desert after a meal.

One of my complaints with this buffet is that there is no drink fountain.  To me, a drink fountain is part of the buffet experience, since you get to choose whatever food you want, why shouldn't you also get to choose the drink you want as well?  I don't enjoy having to call a waiter every time I want a drink refill.

Overall, this is a decent cheap buffet if you don't want to overindulge in trying different menu items.

Very good value for the price (we got an additional $1 off for having a player's card) but there wasn't anything exceptional about the food. The price for dinner with a player's card is $8.99 Sun-Thurs and $10.99 Fri-Sat.

So the Sands buffet is $10 absolute maximum, it goes down by $1 in price with every tier of players card that you have, and apparently (if you don't book with Hotwire) they give you one or two free with a hotel stay as well. Given that general level of cheapness I came in not expecting much but still managed to be disappointed.

I went on a "prime rib night." Even if the place isn't half full and there's only two people waiting it still takes forever to get seated because everyone does complicated juju with Comps and Coupons and various combinations of such (you pay before being seated.)

Didn't expect much from the "prime rib" but it was worse than expected. Tiny, fatty slices. What meat there is tastes more like stewed beef. The "please kill me" look on the face of the apathetic guy serving said it all.

Outside of that there's not a whole lot put out, it's a pretty small buffet. A lot of the food just flat sucked. The mashed potatoes and gravy tasted wrong/bad for some reason, the penne pasta tasted a little off too. Dinner rolls/butter aren't even so much as warmed. Dessert looks promising with a lot of Italian-ish pastries, but then you get them back to your table and find out they're mostly filled with vanilla pudding. I ended up filling up on baked tilapia, veggies and those roast potatoes with the cheese, which were the only legitimately good things.

Actually I didn't even get full because the crowd and the small size of the buffet area made getting food such a chore. 50 low-mobility old people, moms dragging 3 kids around who have to shove their faces up into everything, and the brokeass Billy Badass problem gambler dudes who just try to run right through everybody jamming the whole works up. I gave up after like 1.5 trips.

Leaving a buffet un-full is Buffet Fail. Only gets 2 stars since I didn't get sick and it didn't set me back much. Probably not coming back unless it's free.

We were looking forward to the pub crawl tonight. On the way up, BAM, head gasket blew in the car. I called just to inform the hotel we weren't going to make it. To my surprise a full refund was offered. It was so unexpected and made our bad day not so bad. Thank you! See you soon.

I paid $10.99 plus tax for this buffet on a Wednesday night, and the food was just not worth it. Had I got it for $8 or less, it would have been worth it.

Nothing particularly bad, it just all tastes like it was out of a can or package. Not much fresh. Cool-whip instead of whipped cream. Pre-packaged cookies instead of fresh baked cookies. Spaghetti sauce and Alfredo sauce that tasted (take a guess now) like it was out of a can.

They got two stars instead of one because of very friendly and attentive host and servers. However, I wouldn't go again.

The Sands Regency is on the National Bedbug Registry.  Check it out yourself.  When I called to see if they eradicated the area, I was transferred to Housekeeping.  She was mysterious and closed down and said she is "not" allowed to talk about it and transferred to Security.  The man in Security said he is not allowed to talk about it either and hung up on my abruptly.  

Bed Bugs, grotesque.  But it has Mel's Diner.  Just enjoy Sands but don't stay.  The last time I stayed there was this large blood spot in the middle of the floor (2 feet by 3 feet.  I think a crime happened.

True it's a bed bug place. The hotel is stinky and smells like rotten Indian foods. The carpet is dark and dirty. The elevator looks scary place to ride. Roberta, The night person in the front desk looks untidy and un accommodating. Go to Motel 6 and you will enjoy your stay!

Hotel is always staffed with friendly employees with great customer service skills. Our rooms are always nice and clean and they always bring us extra blankets and towels when asked. Our heater was not working on our last visit and they fixed it immediately after I called the office to let them know. Highly impressed with the service of their guests.  It's old, but its clean.

Thank you to all your staff~
