Ameristar offered me a free room for my Birthday, and decided to take the offer. It was the best thing I did. We had another couple come to have the fun and celebrate with us. The room was clean, the food was very good, and we had lots of fun in the casino. They even had a birthday cake made...

Spent two nights midweek in the whirlpool king suite. The room was spacious and clean (do yourself a favor and make sure to request a room with a river view, the view of the parking lot is far inferior). The room was clean, the whirlpool tub was huge and great, comfortable bed, nice large bathroom. The wi fi was free,...

Luck was with me when I stopped the other day, I actually walked out with about twice as much money as I walked in with. I played penny, dollar, and breifly visited the High Limit section and had hits though out. I just gambled that day but by the looks of it I would say the rooms would be nice...

Quick to respond to your every need, be it a drink at the video games, or watching your machine while you visit the restroom, or cheering you on late into the night. Personable staff, very welcoming group. They serve up delicious food. Better choices available in the buffet.

I stay here often, usually 2 to 3 times a month. The cleanliness of the rooms to the professional service of the front desk is always top notch. It is a great place to just park the vehicle and stay. Can eat supper, gamble a bit, listen to live music, and catch a nitecap... all under one roof.

We stayed at this hotel for a night to get away and we had a great price for the hotel. The room was comfortable and was clean. As the title says however, even in a no smoking room you have smoke. It is just what it is. the Casino floor is smoking and I guess that is part of visiting....
