“Very nice room, great complex”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

I was honestly surprised at how good an experience it was having a room at a hotel casino. The room was very clean, updated and very well maintained. It was surprisingly quiet, which I had feared prior to check in at a casino hotel. Staff was nice, hotel complex has several good dining options to pick from, and overall it was a very good stay

Room Tip: Only experienced one room, but it was on a higher floor and it was very good

I received two free nights at the Ameristar in Kansas City. The hotel was really nice. The rooms were large and clean. The bathroom had a double vanity which was nice. The people were friendly and everything went smoothly. That is the positive.
For the negative-The beds aren't very comfortable. We had a king bed and it was pretty hard. Also, the pillows were horrible. There were a lot of pillows but none of them were good to sleep on. The were all too soft and we didn't sleep well because of them. The only other negative isn't directed at the hotel but if you are there, eat elsewhere. We had breakfast at the diner there and I could have had better coffee and breakfast at a Denny's, and I don't like Denny's at all. The buffet was also not good for lunch. I might stay at the hotel again but, if I'm looking for the total package with entertainment and food, I would go elsewhere.

The staff are excellent. They are so polite, friendly, and attentive! Several nice restaurants and even Burger King or Sbarro if you have kids. Connected to a movie theatre and small arcade as well. Our room was very clean and comfortable!

We really appreciated the great customer service during our stay, especially Jessica at the front desk and the manager of the Star Club (sorry, don't recall her name). Food was delicious, room was nice, customer service fantastic!

This was a road trip in which we stayed at both Ameristar Kansas City and Ameristar Council Bluffs. This hotel was by far the larger of the two. We first entered at the hotel area which was your typical lobby. Likewise the room was very nice but nothing special. For some reason we were placed in what I can only assume was the handicapped accessible room. It had a large, open bathroom with lots of rails. We had a walk-in shower with a stool and detachable handle. Honestly I kind of enjoyed the cushioned shower stool.

The real difference between the facilities was in the food and casino area. In the Kansas City hotel this area was massive. It's built to look like a small city complete with a fake sky over your head. The sky painted on the ceiling was a cute touch and has an illusion of movement to it due to being set a couple a feet above the top of the fake buildings. However after walking around a bit this ended up giving me a bit of vertigo.

The food is pretty good and comes with the standard price gouging one would expect. A 20 oz soda will set you back 3 bucks. The buffet stands out the most among the restaurants. They offer several cuisines each of which have their own over-the-top display. I made myself sick overeating at the KC BBQ area that day.

The casino area was split into two floors and dominated mostly by video slots. It was spread over a fairly large area which made if feel less claustrophobic than some casinos I've visited in the past.

Overall this was a fun property to visit. I've never been to Vegas and can only compare it to the casinos I've visited in Oklahoma. This place was larger in scale than those casinos but not dramatically so. What really made this property stand out was the layout of the interior. It did make you feel like you're in an enclosed little world. Albeit one designed to quickly part you from your money.
