Pinnacle Entertainment announced plans in 2006 to build Sugarcane Bay, a $350-million casino resort, next to its L'Auberge du Lac casino in Lake Charles. The plan was canceled in 2010, and Pinnacle returned the gaming license to the state.
In February 2011, the license was awarded to Creative Casinos LLC, the company of former Pinnacle chairman Dan Lee, for a $400-million casino named Mojito Pointe to be built on the Sugarcane Bay site.
Ameristar Casinos purchased Creative Casinos in June 2012 for $32.5 million, after Lee had difficulty financing construction. The project was renamed as Ameristar Lake Charles.

My first experience at the Golden Nugget Lake Charles casino and I thought it was awesome. I've not experienced many casino's but I've been to a few and I thought this one was really a great place to explore it has a little of everything for everyone you can fish,play golf and of course enjoy all the top notch amenities the casino has to offer.The lakes are right there call a fishing guide go fishing,golf course on premises and of course shopping and fine dinning in the casino .Fabulous resort style pool wish hot tubs, lazy river,outdoor beach style bar and volleyball court very very well thought out facility. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to be back.👍👍
What can I say. Its a hotel resort. Beautiful views. It is pricey so be prepared to spend. Simple amenities like a microwave and a micro fridge along with some "Deluxe" things to give a better experience would have been nice. I got a Deluxe room king size. Beautifully decorated. Bed was super comfortable and the tub/shower was lovely. Service was fair.
We. Had a great time, however Many things are not open during week days, restaurants have limited menus, and just because they are not taking reservations doesn't mean that you can't just walk up and eat. We will go back, but are aware you can't get room service except on weekends. The room is wonderful and food is great! Acoustics are great for there concerts!
Don't forget to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking a resort. They compare hundreds of booking web sites and normally will have rooms a lot cheaper compared to others! You're welcome :)! This hotel is one of the most well known in the area. I have been coming here for years. If you choose this place you won't regret it. Had the best massage at the spa. The restaurants are all great --- lots of variety of food --- and the rooms are nice. The pool area is so pretty and fun. The casino itself has all the games you'd want, as well as shops, concerts, and comedy shows. Self parking is pretty convenient too.
I had a great time the rooms were luxurious and clean. The staff was very helpful. All the restaurants were open, room service was great. The golf course which will manicured and I had a lot of fun playing. The casino was popping with excitement and I was winning money. The pool area was excellent the water was warm and it was nice at night. I had a wonderful time.
