This was our first visit to Ameristar and we were not disappointed. Check-in was quick and easy. Staff were all very friendly. Our room was modern with updated furnishings. Very clean, with big bathroom and tub. We did ask for a room facing the lake and had a nice view of the marina. The bed was so comfortable.
We ate in the buffet twice and both times we were happy with the food. Food was fresh with loads of selections for everyone. Salad bar had many options. 2 soups were offered. Nice selection of meats. The Asian station was especially good. Loved the egg drop and hot and sour soups. Orange chicken was exceptional. Very tasty crab rangoons.
Casino was clean with lots of newer machines. Although a smoking casino, I didn't feel like it was over-powering. Ventilation seemed good and staff were always cleaning ashtrays and empty glasses.
I did notice after 10pm a younger, rowdier crowd came in and there seemed to be increased security present. No problems that I saw. Overall we had a great experience and would return again.
