So impressed with clean indoor & outdoor premises. Courteous valet, front desk & casino staff. Our hot tub suite was amazing! Very rare to find an immaculate room but after my inspection, it was perfect! Very fun casino. Preferred the lower level, as it was a bit more relaxing with less people & more open slots. But would have been nice to be able to charge beverages to our room. Bella's was affordable, delicious food and fast service but the Sportsbar did not meet all our expectations. The bar service was a little slow and our food was eh, ok. Overall, this establishment made our anniversary unforgettable. This is our new hotspot and will definately recommend it to others!!!!!

Room Tip: 5th floor with a river view is a must!!

This was our first visit and wow. We were in Council Bluffs for a couples getaway. We spent 2 nights in the Octagon Suite. First off the entire property was immaculate. Everything clean, painted and well maintained. I really loved how the motel is separate from the gambling, making it very peaceful. The octagon suites are amazing. There is one and a half bathrooms, living room with fire place, sink with counter, coffee pot and small fridge and flat screen. In the bedroom hot tub, king bed, flat screen tv and an amazing view of the Omaha Skyline. Very romantic for a couples get away. The pool, exercise room and business center are shared with the Holiday Inn next door. Easy walk through hallway connecting the two motels. Again pool, sauna, hot tub, work out room and public bathrooms very clean. Had room service one night and though pricey, it was very good. We tried the buffet for lunch the next day and it was very good. I surprised my husband with a massage in the room from a private vendor. He loved it. If I had one wish it would be that Ameristar would start offering some spa services such as massages etc.. We had one glitch in our stay and the staff made up for it by surprising us with wine and a cheese and fruit plate. It was really good and appreciated. Can't wait to stay here again. Maybe I can win next time...

Fun casino! Fiancee and I always havea good time! They have a child watching service and a few restaurants that we haven't tried yet. This is where we will be staying for our honeymoon as well! It's probably one of the better casinos I've been to. Machines are well taken care of.

Made hotel reservations for one night while visiting the Nebraska-Iowa area. Enjoyed a nice, comfortable room. The buffet was like all the others and was priced at $18 per person. Our two boys had an absolute blast at Kids Quest for a few hours. Had good luck at the blackjack table but none at craps, Pai Gow and slots. The casino was decent but smokey.

I spend 6 to 8 nights a month on the road and when I come to Council Bluffs, I always try to stay at the Ameristar. The rooms are clean with new LED TVs with great selection of channels. Nice big bathrooms with granite countertops. For gamblers, those expecting Vegas, it's not Vegas but it is a nice gaming area with extremely friendly dealers.

Room Tip: Even number rooms face the highway. Odd number rooms face the river and downtown Omaha.
