This casino is going downhill and fast. There use to be regular benefits for having their players' card. Now it is a joke. A number of employees are rude. A manager was incredibly rude to my group and charged us for drinks that were not even poured. No wonder other employees are rude if it is acceptable for management to... More

Asked women worker who was in uniform and on the floor a simple question. She frowned at me while speaking on her personal "sail foam" (cell). Personal call more important than a large group spending money? Gilbert needs to fire and bring in new fresh workers or many I know will not spend their time and money at this place.

Visited the casino on the Labor Day holiday. Swiped my card and "won" 2 free entrees at the Market. Coupon did not print, so I asked guest rewards for one. Was rudely informed that the system had a glitch and I had won nothing. Emily was rude and condescending. Stated I was trying to scam them. Took my name and... More

no you don't get drinks free if you play and many of the machines are the digital models. There are tables but they tend to be a bit over filled and not many seats available. One of the machines ate some cards and they worked at fixing it while everyone watched. They should have gotten another machine or just used... More

This hotel has not been updated in a very long time, extremely dated, services are lacking. The sports bar on site closes early and the service is non existent.

Left my money behind but enjoyed the late evening immensely. Didn't arrive until 11 pm but the place was still packed. Loved that we could enjoy a cigar as the entire facility is smoker friendly. That said you don't smell the smoke walking through the casino. It is well managed and you only know anyone is smoking if you happen... More

We spend approximately 6 months in Michigan and the other 6 in Florida. Greektown Casino is easy to get to and is a good form of entertainment and visited very often while in Michigan. We are slot players and do set a spending and time limit, which is good. Sometimes walk out a winner and sometimes a looser or a... More

When I first visited here I thought this was a pretty good casino - down-to-earth, if smoky. Well, it's still smoky, maybe even more so. Last time I found lots of penny slots with low minimums. This time, not so many. The non-smoking room is very small and was always crowded when I went by to get some fresh(er) air.... More

My mom and I went to the casino yesterday intending to play slots in the non-smoking area. First off, mom is elderly and has to move slowly with frequent rest stops. The elevator to the third floor with the non-smoking rooms was not easily accessible and we had to navigate through an area thick with smokers. Long wait for the... More

We do apologize about your confusing trek to the non-smoking area. Did you know that we have the largest non-smoking area in Detroit? This allows for us to provide non-smokers with many... More
