Loved every moment of my stay here. My Husband and I had a wonderful dinner at the hotel restaurant Iridescence before traveling out to the city for a night on the town. Dinner was amazing, the hotel is beautiful and the staff very friendly. Can't wait to go back.

We spent one night here, had tickets to Tigers game! Definitely would highly recommend staying here! The rooms are very nice and clean and big! We had a king bed room. The stay was Fantastic, however think their staff could be more friendly. All around, definitely worth the stay. Would I spend another night here, YES....!

MotorCity's property has an odd feel to it - like those riverboats they convert into casinos - and I later found it was a conversion, too (originally Wagner Bakery / factory, where Wonder Bread was manufactured). Our room was far from terrible, yet overall decor was too masculine to appeal to me - dark brown / neutral color scheme, massive... More

Had to have surgery so the VA recommended staying there. You get a discounted rate if they know you are having a medical procedure. We got a room on the 14th floor and it was great. King size bed. Lots of pillows. Free breakfast . The security there is really good. You must show your key to get to the... More

Stayed here for one night with USA Volleyball nationals and loved our stay. Beautiful rooms, immaculate bathrooms, one of the comfiest hotel beds I've stayed in. Buffet was very good--they even had sushi! Nice casino. Played both roulette and blackjack and for the most part had very friendly dealers. We really enjoyed our stay!

The room rate should include a fireman's respirator so you can stand being in the casino long enough to gamble! The room was very nice, however, when one books a room in order to take advantage of the casino there is an expectation of being able to enjoy a little gambling. No such luck, I couldn't stand the smoke filled... More

We’re sorry to hear you couldn’t enjoy the casino, Alltherockstar! Since smoking is allowed on the casino floor, we’ve installed a state-of-the-art ventilation system that replaces the air with fresh air from outside every nine minutes. We’re always looking for ways to improve your experience and appreciate the comments so we can keep improving. Hope to see you again soon! More

I love this casino. It has a great variety of games, and the bars and restaurants are great. The hotel, however, always leaves something to be desired. I've stayed here several times, and always find the room to be less than clean. I've also encountered my fair share of grumpy staff members. It is, however, the best deal money wise... More

I had never stayed here before but wanted to. Check in took about 2 minutes...super efficient. Got the key and went to the room to put our suitcases away. We wanted to have some dinner and hit the casino. The room was very nice. Like a nice hotel in Las Vegas. Beautiful bathroom with separate tub and shower plus bathrobes... More

I stayed for a weekend get away. I enjoyed the atmosphere,the bars gambling and rooms were all great. The room was clean and had a nice view, I wish it was closer to monroe street where everything is.

Staying with two friends at the Motor City Casino Hotel turned into a nightmare--literally. After standing in line for the casino buffet, we were presented with machines, not a cashier. We chose to put the meals on our room bill and went in and enjoyed our dinner. We returned to our room where we soon discovered the walls to be... More
