Love the room, bathroom was the star!!!

The room was upgraded to a upper level with a beautiful view, the bathroom with so large and remodeled. I was able to enjoy going to the casino anytime and staff were friendly. Check in/out was a breeze.

Wedding time

I enjoy staying here because it fits all my needs. It's close to everything and the view of the beach is breathtaking. Rooms are beautiful and staff is friendly. I'm not a gambler but its here if I just want to have fun and try my luck.

Cancelled without notice
Max Hui B

Yesterday, my husband and I tried to check in to our hotel Ameristar East Chicago that we made a reservation a month. We were promptly informed that our reservation was cancelled because “we checked in after 9pm” and reservations would be cancelled after 9 if we did not show up according to their policy. I carefully read the fine prints in the confirmation receipt and their website, and found no indicate for such a policy. The manager wouldn’t elaborate where this policy can be found. I have some suspicion that the hotel deny us because we are a gay couple (or for that matter, I am not White), but how would I know?

We tried negotiating for a rebook or a refund at least, but they said their hotel was booked full and they would not give any refund. I would like to point out that during the mean time, we observed that other straight (White) couples were allowed to checking in.
