We booked at the Ameristar because of the new 12-table poker room only to discover it was completely empty at 8pm (minus the three bored employees). That was a huge disappointment for my husband since it was his birthday trip. He did enjoy the craps tables though thankfully. The hotel was super clean but the walls were incredibly thin. We...

Don't let the neighborhood scare you, this is a great place for a couple to escape from Chicago or Southwest Michigan. A great rate and a room that could inspire romance would convince me to bring my wife on a future visit for an escape. The large, well appointed bed, mood lighting in the walls, tub for two, glass shower,... More

In the midst of industry sits a hotel that is undiscerning, until you walk in. The lobby and furnishings are upscale and beautiful. The room was larger than most hotel; rooms and very well appointed. Separate tub and shower that you only find in the finer hotels, nice bedding, flat screen tv, sofa, desk...what a very pleasant surprise. Even if... More

I have stayed several times over the last few years for overnight getaways at the Ameristar and find it to be very luxurious with deluxe room furnishings. The beds are super soft and very comfortable and the marble bathrooms have very large bathtubs and as well as separate showers to use. The desk area is also very nice with a... More

I enjoyed my stay here. I had a chance to eat at the buffet, and attend the casino. Would definitely recommend to others. You get full, win a little money, and then you retire for the night. Beautiful place. All of the workers, have such wonderful attitudes!!

Ameristar is a great place to get away. It is a little out of the way, but worth it. Rooms are very nice and comfortable. The casino itself has changed many hands over the years. Make sure you have an omelette at the buffet. The one lady makes the best. Ask for James the bellhop when checking in. (He is... More

Had a deluxe king room with partial view of Lake Michigan. Room was large, modern and very comfortable. Large bathroom as well. Staff friendly and helpful. Five restaurants up the escalators on the way to the casino and one right outside the casino. Casino has lots of slots and some table games.

I selected this hotel based on the location for my business trip. It is not in the best of areas so I was a bit concerned. I arrived early and my room was not ready but Danika at the front desk offered to text me when my room became available. I stored my luggage with the bellman who was friendly... More
