We have stayed at this hotel several times and their accommodations and service are always very good! Our room was quite comfortable and I am especially fond of the lighted makeup mirror by the sink! I had a little trouble with the room safe not opening and all problems were resolved quickly. Very attentive staff from the front desk to...

We enjoyed some time in the casino of the Ameristar Casino Hotel. It's a good rainy day activity at least for a short period of time unless you are very lucky at gambling. There is full gambling tables and machines. It is a nice place but not impressive in any way.

Ameristar Council Bluffs is one of the best casinos in the midwest. The people are superb. The casino is always fun to be in but the rooms are first rate. The food and atmosphere in the sports bar is outstanding.

Wow! We had a wonderful stay at the Ameristar Council Bluffs. From the checkin (pleasant and fast), to the room (modern, clean and a great view of the river boat) to the buffet (great selection and very yummy) and the casino (SUPER fun and great payouts). All in all it was a great stay. Wish we could have stayed longer...

Always a good experience when staying at Ameristar! Only wish they still has KidsQuest! My son always looked forward to going there and playing. Many conveniences in one place such as several different restaurants. One of the biggest downfalls is the expense of small children to eat buffet is ridiculous and way over priced.

Colorado spoils me... For many reasons but a big one is cigarette smoke. This casino reeks. My hotel room is nice. It's 8:30 at night and the only option for food is the sports bar. After waiting for too long in my opinion we left. Next year we'll try someplace else.

The casino floor is packed and lively. The hotel rooms are clean. The staff is friendly and security is attentive. We stayed here 2 nights over a weekend in early July. A little confusing between check-in and finding hotel elevators. Also confusing coming in from parking lot... finding check-in or finding the casino entrance. Overall, a fun time during our...

In comparing this Holiday Inn Express to other's that we have stayed at I would give this one a two star rating. We had a nice enough room on the river side with a view (better than most). Our room was far enough away from the Casino that we did not smell the smoke. We opted for the cold breakfast...

Room & bathroom were nice enough and clean; however, these aren't AS nice as other Ameristar's we've stayed in. The ONE problem we had, I made reservations online. It said and my confirmation said, "must cancel within 24 hours of stay, check in is 6-9" in a nutshell. So we got there late as we're traveling 10:15 pm. They'd cancelled...
