I really like coming to this casino. The rooms are unexpectly nice and comfortable. The games are fair and the slots are fun. I enjoy the food and all the nice staff they have here. They're very attentive. This is my favorite casino, hands down!

Review collected in partnership with Penn National Gaming
Comfortable rooms and an all around good time. We've been to the Heritage Buffet many times and have never been disappointed. The hotel room was very clean, comfortable, and very nice. Our gaming experience has always been enjoyable and exciting. This is one casino we will be visiting often.

Review collected in partnership with Penn National Gaming
It was ok. I didn’t win any money but my Mom had a great time. We had a very good steak dinner and the lobster was very very tasty! We were appreciative of the valet who let us put our leftover food in our car until we left!

I had the chance to stay at the Ameristar Casino hotel during a business trip to the East Chicago area. I had a very early appointment the next day and didn't want to stay in Hammond or Portage this time. After checking many reviews I decided to give the Ameristar Casino a shot. As I cam off the highway there are signs that clearly indicate where the casino is. When you enter the property there is Valet parking, a massive covered parking area and an outside parking lot. I used the covered parking lot and made my way into the hotel and checked in. - (A tip for the folks who check guests in, ask where they parked since I was given a high floor room in the tower opposite from the covered parking garage.) It was quite the hike with a duffel bag, backpack and 2 suitcases. No worries though, I just found it a little annoying. I made way to the elevator and all the way up to the room. When I entered the room I immediately got this 'glory from a past era' vibe. The room itself was spacious but reminded me of a casino hotel I stayed in, in Laughlin NV in the '90s, still, the room was clean, it had only a slight odour of smoke and the furniture was dated, as another reviewer mentioned, I had the same peeling couch in my room. Overall the room was large, the furniture comfortable and the bathroom was very palatial. One of the positives of my stay was the view, I had a really good view of the shoreline and it was a clear sunny day which made the experience better. The wifi in the room was strong and I was able to get some work done. For the foodie, the hotel features an award-winning steakhouse, a sports bar, a buffet-style restaurant and a burger shop. All standard in any casino-hotel property. however, I would like to see an early morning specialty coffee bar, that would be great as I had to drive all the way to Dunkin' just to get a decent coffee. I could not find the fitness center so I went for a long walk around the hotel and beach area, which was a very nice stroll. The hotel simply needs a facelift and the staff should be more attentive to guests' needs, otherwise, everything else was great. There aren't many options in East Chicago, so for the price, this is a good value.

This is by far my favorite casino to stay that’s attached to a casino, the rooms are expansive and always clean. I always check in Thursday nights and Crystal is the front desk associate I always look for! She’s attentive, friendly, remembers that I like two waters. Last night, I forgot my room key in my room, so I went downstairs and saw a line, she saw me in line, figured out I probably needed a key and asked her colleague to help me. Talk about service, thank you Crystal!
