Reviewed May 11, 2013

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.

My aunt came in from Tucson, AZ. for a visit. She wanted me to take her gambling. It was a miracle that Ameristar offered me a free room. It was so nice to be able to play the exciting machines, eat and enjoy ourselves and not worry about having to take the long drive back home. The treat was extra nice going to rest in our beautiful room. Thanks AMERISTAR, a bunch. Will be back again in May.

p.s. All the staff extend themselves to their customers. It makes you feel so good!!!!

My Fiancee & I frequently visit Ameristar Casino & Hotel on a weekly basis for over two years for leisure time. The hotel staff is great. The rooms are always clean & the beds are very comfortable. We've never had to complain about anything. Housekeeping always supply extra towels if needed & when we stay more than one day housekeeping never have a problem coming in to clean the room. The atmosphere is quiet & comfortable I recommend this facility to anyone who is visiting the area.

The Ameristar East Chicago has been remodeled. The hotel was totally revamped, the rooms are much nicer now, with 42 inch big screen TV's, the carpeting was redone, and the hotel is much nicer than it used to be. The front desk staff is quick and efficient, they have a security guard monitoring the entrance to the hotel elevators, and you have to insert your hotel key to access the floor buttons. The restaurants are very good, they especially take care of the buffet, they put out small pans of food, so the food turnover is fast, so the food is always fresh and hot. They make sure that the food line is always kept clean. The guests who stay overnight can sometimes be a bit obnoxious and loud, but that comes with the area. The bathrooms are very nice and clean, and the water is HOT. Housekeeping staff is friendly, and will quickly respond to your needs. Overall, we like this Casino/Hotel.

Room Tip: Get a lake view if available.

Whenever my husband and I get a chance to get away for a day or 2, we ALWAYS head to Ameristar for a relaxing getaway. The rooms are beautiful and the staff is ALWAYS friendly and eager to help with anything we may need. The restaurants are also wonderful. We have never been to a better Steak house. We go for all of our special occasions!

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the nicer the room. That's what I've always been told; but, to tell...
