Fun casino! Fiancee and I always havea good time! They have a child watching service and a few restaurants that we haven't tried yet. This is where we will be staying for our honeymoon as well! It's probably one of the better casinos I've been to. Machines are well taken care of.

Made hotel reservations for one night while visiting the Nebraska-Iowa area. Enjoyed a nice, comfortable room. The buffet was like all the others and was priced at $18 per person. Our two boys had an absolute blast at Kids Quest for a few hours. Had good luck at the blackjack table but none at craps, Pai Gow and slots. The casino was decent but smokey.

I spend 6 to 8 nights a month on the road and when I come to Council Bluffs, I always try to stay at the Ameristar. The rooms are clean with new LED TVs with great selection of channels. Nice big bathrooms with granite countertops. For gamblers, those expecting Vegas, it's not Vegas but it is a nice gaming area with extremely friendly dealers.

Room Tip: Even number rooms face the highway. Odd number rooms face the river and downtown Omaha.

I received a complimentary pass to stay one night in the Ameristar Casino Hotel, I paid extra for an upgrade so I could have the Jacuzzi in the room, it was heaven! It was one of the cleanest hotels that I have EVER been in, the room service was excellent, they went beyond to make my meal tasty, by adding extra ingredients that i asked for that did not originally come in the meal. I had the most peaceful rest ever, and I loved the free wifi to do my homework, which I've stayed in the Hilton a few times and you have to pay $10 a night for wifi. There were plenty towels and the whole room smelled so fresh, and not stale; like most hotels rooms, I hope to stay there again real soon.

Room Tip: all of the rooms are great, but if you book online, you are guaranteed to get the room you want and ready when you need it.

Okay, as with all casinos, some days are good and others...well not so good. But it gets you out of the house. The employees are extremely nice and helpful. Their rooms are outstanding!!! Very comfortable and clean. The buffet is good for lunch but better over the supper hour, more of a variety of food. If you would rather eat light, although check the hours of operation, Bella's is nice and we have always had good food there...no complaints and service is excellent as well. Yes, we truly do recommend Ameristar!

Room Tip: We always stay on the 5th floor..smoking. The location of the rooms from the elevator can be quite a hike so you may want to request a room closer to the elevator. We really have no preference. Always quiet!!! Always comfortable!!! *****
