This hotel is beautiful and my king room as well. There are many on site dining options other than the standard casino buffet. I appreciated that it was also very clean. My only complaint would be that someone was clearly smoking on the non-smoking floor. Something the hotel pro

I kept receiving offers from Ameristar to stay free for 2 nights so I decided to try them out. I stayed here several years ago but couldn’t remember if I had any issues. I received an email to do early check in which I did, room was available before 4 pm. Check in was smooth.

Remodel is nice. Casino floor space feels a little closer together. If your claustrophobic you might not like it. I'm a non smoker so if smoke bothers you, you might not like it either, however as with most casinos they have non smoking areas. First time visitors receive a 15 dol

Another nice stay distracted by the smell of weed floating thru the hotel halls, in Blackhawk I can understand because it's legal, but it's not here. Aside from that the room was clean and nicely decorated. The was plenty of things to do other than gaming if your not into that.

I don't have a question, a comment. Who is answering these questions?...couldn't be staff from Ameristar, I hope. I just want to say living in the area for 40 years my life...some of these answers to questions that potential patrons are asking are unsatisfactory. If you do not know the answer to questions...then find it and put an appropriate answer down not vague ones that I've been reading. Be proud of where you work & the area. Through your answer show it's a wonderful place to visit & Ameristar is a great place to stay. Showing staff will find out the answers to questions even if they do not know.
are you asking if i'm an employee? no not at all!
