This is one of the worst casinos I've been in. It is absolutely smoke filled. Nonsmoking area is anything but non smoking. Had to ask for help to find our way out. Completely hidden. This place is a fire hazard and should be shut down!!!!!!More

the food was great at the sports bar and restaurant there was a non-smoking area for the slot machines . There was a series of long ramps, so you didn't have to climb steps. very clean and shiny.

I recently attended the NMHA convention as a speaker at the Ameristar Casino Hotel and was pleasantly surprised by the great lodging and food. If your in Council Bluffs or Omaha give it a try.

Pretty underwhelming casino, looks much larger from outside (maybe due to hotel attached?) try the Horseshoe instead if you want to gamble.

You can also get rooms for $99 on Mondays. It's like everywhere else, cheaper early in the week.
