I read some pretty scary reviews of this hotel before I booked a room. I am puzzled and somewhat suspicious of some of these reviewes. I thought the Majestic Star was very nice. Our room looked recently renovated; clean, spacious and very comfortable. It was a bit cool to use the balcony, but that was an unexpected plus. I can't...

There is no doubt the casino and hotel could use a little paint and carpet. The rooms may be clean but it is so DINGY that you are just not sure. Our room was comfortable the food was decent but the people make this treasure. We live a few hours from the casino and actually had tried to get a...

I get free stats at the Majestic Hotel because of my frequent playing. I had never stayed in the rooms until a week ago. I was verrrrrry disappointed in the rooms; dingy (carpet stained, wall paper peeling off of the walls), dirty (hair in the bathroom, lamp shades had mysterious stains, dead bugs smashed on walls). This hotel needs to...

Dirty, grungy, smells like they installed some hand-sanitizer air freshener instead of actually using sanitizing solutions (trust me, next time you use hand sanitizer, smell your hands, Majestic Star smells like that!). Machines have sloppy hand written, "This is the Bet Max button," on a lot of slot machines. Some of the crew is friendly, but the people that card...

The room was dirty upon check-in including hair in the tub. The linens looked and felt worn and dingy. No breakfast in the morning so you have to go to the casino to eat which is a five minute walk with very limited choices. There is nothing near this hotel except the casino. My husband wanted to go for a...

There is a 24-hour shuttle between the hotel and casino, but if the train is running or is stopped, there could be a long delay. However, it is possible to walk between the two buildings because there is a covered walkway. Yes, the train track separates the two buildings. The room had a comfortable bed, a side chair, table and...

We found this place by accident off he GPS. We weren't able to check it out on trip advisor. It turned out to be a nice hotel. The beds were comfortable, room was clean bathroom was clean and had a really nice buffet at the casino. We were told the wifi wasn't working but it worked for us.

A few weeks ago my friend and I stayed at the Majestic Star Hotel & Casino, Gary, Indiana. This was truly a fun place to stay even if you are not a gambling person. I mainly stayed there for the fabulous seafood & steak buffet and the live entertainment on the weekends. The rooms were reasonable and the staff extremely...

Of all the casinos in this area this is probably the dingiest one. Essentially they've taken two old riverboat casinos and kind of welded them together. I really like rolling in to this place about 4 am because there is always a colorful bunch of characters hanging around. Yes this place is smoky and a little run down but it's...

We stayed at this hotel with 3 friends one of them being a black card member which is this casinos highest tier card so he got us a comped room. The minute we arrived I could already tell this hotel and casino was very outdated from looking at the two rusted casino boats by the parking garage. We checked in...
