Having lived in Denver since 1996 and never visited any of Colorado's gaming towns, decided last minute to surprise my girlfriend with a 'Thursday Night Date Night' at the Ameristar Resort in Black Hawk. Boy was it a blast.
We aren't huge gamblers and appreciated the extra amenities the resort offered. We took full advantage of the gym, pool and jacuzzi. The gym was very nice, really clean and had at least 15 brand new Matrix weight stations, dumbbell rack and a half dozen treadmills.
Towels were available in the gym and at the pool. We felt like we were staying in a very nice resort in Vegas! What a treat!
As for the bad reviews regarding poor service, we didn't experience anything negative. The staff was very nice. Above all though, was the high quality "feel" of the hotel/room. Almost forgot we were in Black Hawk.....
As for the gaming.... lost $100 in 30 minutes playing slots (no payouts=boring), walked across the street and won on their slots...only to give the winnings back once back at Ameristar.
Ameristar did have a fantastic poker room, could have stayed at those tables for hours, but then it would have been a very lonely "date night"....
We will go back! We highly recommend it for a quick get away!
