This casino is just gross. It stinks like urine and stale cigarettes. Considering that I smoke, and noticed it.....I can only imagine what non smokers smell when they walk in here. The slots are super tight, and the employees are rude. Encountered ONE friendly employee, a bartender. Couldn't get a drink in the slots if my life depended on it,... More

Why is this tough to review? It's a casino! I've been to Vegas, Paris, Canary Islands and Carribean Island casinos. this one IS a bit different in that they've managed to remove the serious stark-faced don't make trouble attitude that casinos have. One dealer we had was really fun, while the pit bosses all looked like they were on vacation!... More

We visited the Greektown Casino prior to attending a Tiger's Baseball game. The place is dirty. The customer service atrocious and downright rude. If you have any type of problem w/your machine, don't expect immediate service. In fact, don't expect service at all. We waited over 45 minutes for an attendant to release a jammed pay slip. One attendant rudely... More

This review is just for the casino. We did not stay in the hotel. We were in Detroit and we had a little time to kill before lunch so we stopped in the Greektown Casino. I am not a gambler at all so I just wanted to go in and see what a casino was like. We are from Ohio... More

My husband and I spent some time at Greektown casino while staying at Greektown hotel. We have been to many casinos, and I consider Greektown to be a decent one. There are always promotions going on to entice gamblers, and there was a recent renovation. There are many of the popular slot machines present, and enough of them to keep... More

I really enjoyed the casino and was even up $300.00 dollars from what I brought with me, but the Greek town casino hotel was a whole another story. The walls are pencil thin .

I stayed across the road from this casino, so all I had to do was walk over. All I can say is it's an ok place. A good way to waste time, and money. It stunk of smoke, and was too crowded, everything felt dirty and the atmosphere was depressing. I also didn't like the fact that everything wasn't on... More

Not quite sure what the "remodel" was supposed to do. Looks like we have a ton of new restaurants and no place to game. Table limits are far too high, and the slots are over powering. Not going back to Greektown anytime soon.
