Ameristar Casino Hotel Council Bluffs
Ranked #9 of 24 Hotels in Council Bluffs
Reviewed 18 July 2013 via mobile

We were on a mini vacation in the middle of the week and Ameristar was a great place to stay. As always, it was clean and the employees were so friendly. Each time you see an employee they always greet you with a smile and a Hello. The only thing we noticed that we weren't in love with was the range in temperatures in the hallways, elevators, and lobby areas. It's just seemed like they were all different.

This is a cool place to visit. Gambling on the river boat is fun. The hotel is nice. The food is great. The service is not so good. the service is very slow. I will for sure go back because over all it was a good time. the rooms are a little small. we had a wonderful view of the riverboat from our room.

Room Tip: We have stayed in a variety of rooms and ALL of them are great.

It is a great place to stay and play. I can honestly say I have never won anything big but I at least have got to play for hours on what I do spend. The employees have always treated me like everyone else, no matter what you spend. If you cannot find something you like to play then you shouldn't be gambling, they have everything you could want. The food here is also great. They always have a good spread at the buffet.

On the shore of the Missouri River, the octagon suites are great. ( I think you need to book these rooms through a casino host) Perfect for a couple's special occasion. Offering 2 rooms with a fireplace, large hot tub, comfortable bed, and great views.

Room Tip: The normal hot tub rooms are very noisy.

I really liked this hotel as soon as you walk in you can see how great it looks inside with a few shops and a bar as well as the casino. The pool is wonderful as well, it is both inside and outside and the temperature is perfect not too hot and not too cold. It's only 3 ft deep but we still enjoyed it very much. there is also a hot tub to relax in as well. The room was great it was quiet and I was not woken by the noise of the bar which after reading some reviews about that before staying here I worried about. Overall a wonderful night to stay and would for the price it's worth it!

If you go to the casino, be ready for massive smoke. It was oppressive- So, I stayed clear.

Beyond that, the rooms were nice and well- equipped. The staff was friendly and the parking was free!

Not sure I will return because of the smoke though.
