Hotel was great! We had the king suite with Jacuzzi...the casino on the other hand was the emptiness I've ever seen but my husband and I did win some money so it wasn't all that bad. The staff was great, there's a shuttle that takes you to and from the casino and hotel. Overall...it was Nice.

Compared to their competitors this place is improving quickly. I don’t gamble just play poker but this place has staff that treats you right and takes care of the players. They listen and try to accommodate you, rather than the complete opposite of what takes place in nearby poker rooms. The cocktail service here is fantastic and the asian noodle bar was surprisingly really, really good. Place needs some remodeling but on the whole it’s improving quickly.

This is a no-frills, gambler's casino. Lots of old machines, outdated, decrepit decor, and smoke so thick, you can cut through it with a knife. If you bet more than $200 a hand, you are considered a whale, and they will give you the VIP treatment. Considering this casino is bottom of the barrel, it's not anything to write home about. I'd actually rather eat at white castle than have a comped meal. Yeah. I said that. The food sucks THAT bad in the buffet. I'll stick to my free packs of cigarettes.

Enjoyed our stay here. Beds were comfy, room was decent. The shuttle to the casino was great and convenient. Very friendly staff. A little dated hotel and casino. Could use a little upgrade (lights outside promoting hotel, some not working) u can tell the age of the place. But overall it was great and would stay again if in the neighborhood.

Rooms were clean. Building shows it’s age and could use some maintenance. Wish we had a fridge in the room. Staff is very polite. Shuttle was excellent. Casino had great machines and food options.

Starting to show its age. Common area is pretty dingy. Hotel kinda reminds me of a cheap motel. Last time was there shower didn't work right. They did allow me to switch rooms. Good buffet though with a nice view of the steal mills and the Ameristar casino. Steel City Grill has some good burgers as well. Comps from their rewards program are also better than most.

The service was great. Employees working the table games were very friendly. I went to a game I had never played before (at an empty table) and the dealer explained in simple terms how to play. The pit bosses were very nice and helpful as well. Overall, I would say it was a fun experience.

That place is nasty! This was my first time there and I will not return! The carpet that covers every floor looked disgusting like it's cleaned once a year. The atmosphere is depressing it's casino boat and it should be lively to get people to play and spent money. I did not have a good time and it was not inviting to me. The restaurant was pricey for the small amount served. The evening price is based on the crab legs all you can eat. There were never enough to get all you can eat. Sorry not a good place to gamble or eat.

Sorry to say, I had looked forward to finally staying here, after literally going by on the highway dozens of times! BUT, Only reason I can give 3 stars is that the casino fine dining was excellent, and the very good quality bedding was as advertised. Room itself was truly basic and "rundown". Cracked floor tiles in bathroom bordered on dangerous. Room walls were so thin that TV at night until 3am on one side kept me up, while on other side in morning "couple getting busy" woke me up very early.

I went to Majestic Star to see what it would be like to play a slot machine. I had a sandwich on the outside of the casino. Before I boarded the casino. The sandwich was delicious. The young lady who served me the sandwich was extremely friendly. I didn't stay at the hotel but things that I saw on the casino were unbelievable. The bus to take you over was extremely rusted out. No repairs have been done on that bus in years. The seats on the the casino were cracked, the carpet looked horrible nothing has been repaired in many years. Things looked as if they were not into keeping the upkeep of the business. I believe yearly repairs stopped when Mr. Barton died the original owner of Majestic Star Casino. Whoever owns the casino now has no love for the boat. I feel as if they purchased it for the money that they receive from it.
