Negative Reviews

Lacks basic amenities.

Despite boasting an impressive casino, guests have been rather disappointed that Ameristar Casino East Chicago lacks basic amenities such as a swimming pool and a spa which are considered almost standard for a hotel of this calibre.

Disappointment at the casino.

One of the biggest highlights at Ameristar Casino East Chicago is the modern casino where guests find modern amenities including a 12-table poker room. Several guests have, however, reported being disappointed after finding few or no guests at night. Further, a few guests have complained of being unfairly cut off by the casino staff on grounds of being a nuisance after enjoying just a few glasses of wine.

Restaurants closed on some days.

Guests have reported being disappointed after discovering that their favourite restaurants here do not open on certain days of the week.
