Well, its been a while since I've stayed at Ameristar casino, however, last year my experience was great. Currently, even thought I'm a preferred member I am getting charged over 100.00 to stay overnight. While playing table games I have yet to met a dealer that wasnt kind, professional and funny. Makes for a great experience. Slots are great too,... More

My brother in Florida had made reservations at Ameristar in Council Bluffs. I live in Red Oak, Iowa. I made reservations when I heard he and his family was going to be in town. My niece with her family came down from Minnesota to visit. We wanted to be close but the hotel didn't think they could accomodate us. To... More

Our room was large and quite comfortable, over-looking the casino boat and the river. Several good restaurant choices. A very enjoyable one night stay. The casino boat is part of the hotel, and it is a lot of fun to play the machines.

We stayed here on Memorial Day Weekend 5/25/2015 on our way to Henry Doorly Zoo. The hotel room was very clean and big with a whirlpool tub, and a large walk in shower. This Hotel gives you free Wi-Fi which a lot of other hotels we stayed at charged extra for. The buffet was excellent and quite inexpensive. Just be... More

Had a great time at this casino as I don't go much! My room was great small fridge comfortable beds nice bathroom. I'm a non smoker so my only complain is the smell in the casino is terrible. The casino is losing so much money by allowing smoking we left so early cause even my friends who are smokers felt... More

Friendly staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We had a room with a whirlpool tub in the living room. Not luxurious but functional and clean. Nice selection of places to eat and convenient to the casino. Nice entrance atrium environment.

Horrible service from the moment we walked in. The room we reserved was somehow not available although we booked online two weeks prior to checking in. How does that happen? The front desk clerk was very rude and did not apologize but seemed annoyed as though we were bothering her. We booked for 3 nights but decided to stay only... More

Check-in was easy and quick. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. I had reserved the whirlpool room and it was very nice. The bathroom was huge with the toilet and shower in a separate area with double sinks. The shower is big enough to fit two people at once. The whirlpool was wonderful and it was thoroughly... More

Decent hotel. The valets are rude, the rooms are over priced. There is only a tiny refrigerator and no microwave in the room. The bed is comfortable. Do not try to check in before 3 pm. The desk clerk will be too busy on the phone with a personal call. If you are going to eat at any of the... More

We had one night in Omaha / Counsil Bluffs and the Ameristar Casino Hotel was a solid choice with good and clean rooms, various bars and restaurants and obviously the casino, which we didn't visit. But others obviously did. It seemed to be popular.
