We had a couple of days to kill and stayed at the MGM just for the heck of it. What a wonderful surprise it was. First class rooms as good as Vegas and an incredibly caring and polite staff. We'll definitely be back.

Didn't win any money (I didn't), but had a good time. The only thing about these casinos is that they don't have free alcohol beverages while you play. Overall, fun time, I bought my gifts out of the shop there.

I was surprised to see such a large multilevel casino in Detroit. I'm not a real gambler but it seems to have everything you can expect for a fun tourist casino visit.

We stopped in one night after the baseball game and only stayed about three hours. But I must say I was very impressed with the little I saw. The casino is very clean and the staff is regularly seen keeping it that way. The M Life Players Club desk personnel were very nice and quick. The casino is quite large,... More

As a native of metro Detroit I have visited all 3 of the casinos (motor city & greektown being the other 2) and by far the MGM is the cleanest, biggest and has the most variety of games from classics to new. New slots take a bit of time to be rotated in (so if you're looking for the newest... More

I visit the MGM Grand Casino early and often...mainly to avoid the morning rush hour traffic when I work in downtown Detroit. The casino floor looks like Vegas. There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of brightly lit slot machines and plenty of tables which are remarkably busy, even when I'm there at 6:00 in the morning. New slot machines are introduced...

If you are in Detroit, looking for some place to have fun, the MGM is the right place. I had been here several times, expecially for the V CLUB, that almost every Saturday night hosts international DJS.

Went here on a Friday night. Casino was easy to get to. Self parking was close and easy to use. Casino was clean and staff was friendly. Slots were paying well and I enjoyed my time. I would go here again.
