This was not your average room. 2 bathrooms, hot tub, lots of windows, king bed, fireplace, couch, desk, 2 TV's, huge rooms. Stayed overnight because we had to be in the city for appointments early the next day. Great room not something that we do everyday but really nice if you can get it.

My wife and I stayed in a whirlpool suite at the Ameristar and it was great. The room was very clean and well-kept. The restaurant downstairs was quite nice also. The hallways did get a little loud late in the evening but that is not the hotels fault. Great place to stay, worth the money!

My room was roomy, comfortable king bed, very clean. The problem was in the casino for me. For blackjack, they had 1 table each of $5, $10, $15 and all the rest were $25. It was easy to find seats at the $25 tables, but very difficult at the $5 & $10. That was very disappointing for me as I...

We have stayed at Ameristar several times for a weekend getaway, and it is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are always very clean and the staff is very helpful when needed. The only suggestion I have for future hotel patrons is that you do NOT want to get a room anywhere on the 2nd floor above the...

We stayed here instead of west Omaha. It was fun and easy to get into Omaha when we wanted. The room was spacious with a comfy chaise and nice desk area. The vanity area was small but it had an awesome lighted makeup mirror! We enjoyed breakfast at Bella's and the buffet was very good too. The sports bar had...

The hotel itself was acceptable. Room was clean. Jeremy, the person working the front desk, was not good at all. He was working on something on his computer when we walked up to check in and did not greet us. I finally asked if there was anyone else there to help him at the front desk. I tried not to...

When you walk into the hotel, it looks like a street scene. We had a king bed that was so comfortable. The hotel was very clean and the staff could not have been nicer. In fact everyone at the resort was extremely helpful and nice. Had dinner at the buffet, large selection of food and deserts. Even won a little...

Was traveling on business/pleasure. Very much looking forward to staying at Ameristar, since I have visited both Kansas City and St. Charles. However, the person working the Front Desk was so incredibly unpleasant, there was no coming back. She had a similar attitude the week before when my husband was there. After seeing similar comments, it's a pretty sure bet...

We love Ameristar Hotel. The service and accommodations are outstanding! Beds are comfortable and the walk-in showers are roomy. If in the Omaha area, choose Ameristar. Free shuttle to other casinos and the airport.
