High limit employee's are nice and professional. Every time I stay there the rooms are clean and nice, My host does a great job, I would recomend this casino to anyone. The steak house has been very good and the help has treated us with the most respect.

I enjoy myself whenever I visit the casion/hotel/Buffett. My kids get excited when I tell them that we are going to the boat to eat. The atmosphere of the casino floor is great!!!!! I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: It doesn't matter which room that you choose, they are all wonderful!

Coming from the city, if you would tell me that the place you would have the best hotel service would be East Chicago, I would say that you were crazy. However, we had a fabulous time at the hotel. Everyone we encountered gave us excellent service. The rooms were fantastic as well.

Our room was amazing! Large, clean, spacious, and comfortable with a well designed large bathroom. This was one hotel room where the King size bed did not take up all the space. Lots of area to move around and lounge. Decor had a masculine feel - gold, black and red. Bathroom had both a soaking tub and a shower plus a seperate toilet area. I felt like a Queen!!

We stayed for a couple of days. Housekeeping heard us the first morning in the hall wondering if we should put the "Do Not Disturb" sign up while we went to breakfast so we wouldn't get back and find them in the middle of cleaning. She offered to clear up our room next, while we were at breakfast, to make sure it was ready for us. This was so considerate and reflected well on the whole staff.

The breakfast buffet was good with lots of choices, though we got there around 10:30am when they had to break down to get ready for lunch.

While the hotel was wonderful, getting there was "quirky" at best. Our friends offered to loan us their car. And after being driven to the hotel by them, we knew the roads and traffic were more than we could navigate comfortably even with their GPS. (And that is saying alot since we drive on the East Coast near DC & Baltimore frequently.) We were additionally surprised at the lack of taxi service. We asked about calling a cab at the front desk and they said it would be a 30 minute wait to get one! Our friends lived in Whiting, IN which, seems to have no hotels which is why we were staying in East Chicago.

PROS: Spacious accommodations, amazing bathroom, friendly staff, good buffet, food coupons for light casino playing.

CONS: Location - weird entrance road, view of steel mills, Buffet closed from 10:30am-11:00am, hard to get a taxi from that location, NO Mountain Dew anywhere (It's a "coke" place), a fitness center but no spa.

Room Tip: One side of the hotel gets less train noise than the other. You might want to ask about the "q...

Everything about this hotel is top notch except its view of the steel mills, which are immediately adjacent to hotel across the little marina. But you can close the curtains or request a room facing east, which would get you a fairly nice view of Lake Michigan, if the view is an issue for you. Buffet is superb, rooms are large, well appointed, bathrooms are impressive, and beds are comfortable. Not much immediately adjacent to hotel, but a short drive to shopping, restaurants and so forth, and easy access to interstate highways. Overall I would recommend.

To make a long story short, if you are Canadians bring your passports with you if you want a players card.My husband and I stayed for two nights we had our photo ID ready,but they said "oh your Canadian we will need your passports or you can't have a card.Our passports were locked in our car,had to get valet to get our car,then had him park it again,what a hassle!We have been to Vegas,Reno,Mississippi and many other casinos but this was a first!We went to the Majestic Star for a visit the next day with our passports in hand,they asked us do you have a drivers license?After we told them our story they laughed and just said "I guess they just don't like Canadians"I guess I must agree they don't.!

Room Tip: Didn't know they had a pool!
