Room & bathroom were nice enough and clean; however, these aren't AS nice as other Ameristar's we've stayed in. The ONE problem we had, I made reservations online. It said and my confirmation said, "must cancel within 24 hours of stay, check in is 6-9" in a nutshell. So we got there late as we're traveling 10:15 pm. They'd cancelled... More

Our first night we came across some very unruly people next door. I contacted the front desk at it was handled... More

We just spent the weekend at Ameristar, upon arriving the garage was filthy, all of the aisles from the elevators to the casino and to the room were not very clean. Once we got to our room it was very clean and comfortable, housekeeping did a very good job cleaning the room. The only problem was the noise coming from... More

Hotel is very nice, clean, quiet. Has several restaurants to choose from. Casino is 3 levels. Was fun and well maintained. Very busy and most people seemed to be having a good time. staff is friendly. Casino was a bit smokier than other casinos I've been too. Only had a small non smoking area on 3rd level.

Riva restaurant at the casino seemed to be very exclusive. I ordered roasted chicken. It was medium rare. The chef claimed that the bone is sometimes pink. I know the difference between pink and drooling red. The bowl of jus that came with it was not even warm. Sent back with little improvement. I literally had to saw the brussel... More

My family and I stayed here for a baseball tournament. The hotel is clean and updated. The smell of cigarette smoke is STRONG throughout the lower level because of the casino. Our room was a good size and had a refrigerator. The pool is small considering it services two hotels (the Holiday Inn is attached). We ate at Rivas Steakhouse... More
