Lovely for day gambling!

Went at 3 p.m. on a Sunday and it was just lovely! Not crowded or smoky, plenty of available slot machines, and after 3 hours I left down about $10 - can't beat that for a day of... read more

Went at 3 p.m. on a Sunday and it was just lovely! Not crowded or smoky, plenty of available slot machines, and after 3 hours I left down about $10 - can't beat that for a day of slots! The bathrooms were not the cleanest although they were modern looking. I have been in the evening when it's much more... More

My sweetie and I prefer here over the other two casinos for a couple reasons. First, the comps can be used here or in any other MGM resort, like in Vegas. Second, we get the most play here. We have been to the other two casinos in Detroit, but we do best here. We do agree the buffet could be... More

Its a casino, what more can be said?! The place was well ventilated and the employees were nice. They had my favorite slot machine and I won $100, I would go back.

I'm not really a casino person, but I liked it a lot. It has a variety of machines and different table games. The service there is good and all the dealers were really nice. Of you like casinos, you'll probably like it :)

I stopped by in the morning as I had a couple of hours to kill before a business meeting and there is a Starbucks located in the back of the casino. As it was morning, the crowds were thin but the casino certainly didn't feel empty. The staff was friendly and although there are smoke free sections of the casino,... More

For this to be a HUGE establishment, its RIDICULOUS that we have to hold over 15 minutes on a Tuesday morning just to schedule Spa Services! After holding forever I hung up! Only to call back at LEAST 5 times and get a voicemail. I mean..can we get some professionalism here??! Maybe I'll try a SUBURBAN spa...I'm sure my call... More

Coming from Toledo, this Casino is so easy to get to and was by far better than our Hollywood Casino, which really is sad to say. You can smoke in MGM Grand, but there is a room for non smokers if that bothers you. Winnings here were much better than our local casino, too. It was so worth the trip... More

I do casino trips so I have been to a few casinos. I was not impressed with the MGM Grand in Detroit. It was crowded. It was very smoky. I just didn't find it fun or entertaining in the least.

When we go to a ball game or a concert downtown we stay here. The rooms are always nice, there are different choices for eating or having cocktails. It's located within a short cab ride to the event we may be attending. If you feel ambitious you could walk to some of them too.
