We were visiting Detroit for a hockey game, so we only stayed for one night, but I wish I could have extended our trip. Every single staff member I encountered was friendly, courteous, and professional. Our plane landed really early in the morning and check in isn't until 4pm, but they had a room available when we arrived and let... More

This is by far the best hotel in detroit metro. There are deals on hotels .com and similiar websites. And the room was super nice, king size bed full tub and shower, spacious. The restaurant on the top floor was amazing. We spent 300 on our meal and it was worth every penny!

We had a smooth early check in and was given an upgraded room. The room was gorgeous and I enjoyed the jacuzzi. The casino was a little smokey and the buffet was nice although I did find a piece of plastic in my greens, the manager did apologize for that. I would have rated higher but we were awakened by...

Well, really, what can you say bad about a Casino and Hotel? Beautiful spacious room. Free Wifi. Checked in early with no additional costs. Casino in hotel. While it is no Vegas, it is certainly a minor league version in accommodations. The only problem with the hotel is its location. The instant you left the property, there is an aura... More

We enjoy this hotel because of the room service, the lounge bar in the first floor and our favorite is the iridescence resturant in the top of the building. Im also a big fan of the. D. Tour spa. I'm not a big gambler and I think the casino is over crowded most of the time but I still like... More

Impressed with the cleanliness, employees were walking around cleaning. Employees weren't that friendly, otherwise I would have rated 5 stars. I felt safe with all the security walking around. I didn't hear a lot of bells going off in the casino. I lost $400 within an hour. I asked my friend if they noticed anything different from the other casinos.... More

I come to Detroit several times a year. I was pretty excited to stay here and it was nice that we were upgraded to a suite. PROS: 1)Suite has a nice bathroom 2) ample seating 3)Good thick curtains to help block out light. 4) large floor plan. 5) Overall clean. CONS: 1) NOISE; the walls are incredibly thin. People walking... More

We came for one night to go to a Lions game, the staff were great and very friendly, the rooms were spacious, renovated and amazing. Nikita at the breakfast restaurant downstairs was perfect. we would come back again.

Motor City was the only pet-friendly casino/hotel that we were able to find in Detroit. We were definitely discouraged by the $125 non-refundable pet fee, but we were really looking forward to the added entertainment of the casino while visiting family. For $125, I would definitely expect some pet-specific extras or at least acknowledgement that we had a dog. I... More

Staff was very welcoming and available. Pet friendly for service animals, though security could use a refresher on ADA guidelines. Rooms very nice and worth it and accommodations as well. You don't want to really leave the hotel everything is there for what you're needing for just a get away.
