The hotel is first rate

If I went here again, I would enjoy the restaurants and nice hotel. Don't disappoint yourself with the
casino where most everyone loses. Almost everyone I ran into showed disappointment in the casino.
They did an extensive remodeling; you definately would have to put in a herculean effort to win there.

The casino has been refurbished and worth a visit.

I was there on 12/12/18 (Tues) morning. Two for one buffet for those 50+
While playing a slot machine, the "play" function button was not working and I summoned a slot tech (Juan) who examined the machine and determined that the faulty switch was in need of replacing and went to his tool box and found one, came back and replaced it while I played another machine nearby.

Juan and I had a very nice conversation while I played and he worked.
He was gracious and friendly (as all employees should be but are not)

From my vast experiences with slot techs (Fiesta Texas in Henderson NV the best liars)
I have heard many excuses when it comes to why a slot machine is not loud enough or has no sound. You have to remember when Slot machines dinged, rattled or jingled and we were happy because the slots were paying.

So, now that I am paying for entertainment (music, animation, and 3/4 D) and paying dearly for it, i.e. I was at the Hartford Michigan Four Winds on saturday and witnessed a slot player hit for $1,214, I thought "nice" and congratulated her at which point I noticed she was playing $25 dollars per spin on a penny machine WTF!
In the old days, wagering $25.00 per spin should pay back several thousands.

I expect my machine to produce sound and volume that I can hear above those machines across the aisle. So I often interact with slot techs.

Kudos to Juan (Ameristar) and
Leslie Brown (Majestic Star)

Beautifully furnished hotel.

This hotel is beautiful and my king room as well. There are many on site dining options other than the standard casino buffet. I appreciated that it was also very clean. My only complaint would be that someone was clearly smoking on the non-smoking floor. Something the hotel probably has a hard time policing.

A mini vaca.

I kept receiving offers from Ameristar to stay free for 2 nights so I decided to try them out. I stayed here several years ago but couldn’t remember if I had any issues. I received an email to do early check in which I did, room was available before 4 pm. Check in was smooth. Nice guys at check in, friendly security in lobby, clean lobby, clean hallway. Even the cleaning room attendant spoke. Everyone seemed professional. Room was clean, nice, spacious. Love decor. Everything worked, was stocked. I hope u get another stay soon.

Casino only

Remodel is nice. Casino floor space feels a little closer together. If your claustrophobic you might not like it. I'm a non smoker so if smoke bothers you, you might not like it either, however as with most casinos they have non smoking areas. First time visitors receive a 15 dollar credit which seems like the highest around.
