This hotel was a great place to stay. It was clean and comfortable with its modern decor. We stayed in a room on the 13th floor. The area surrounding the hotel is rough due to the dilapidated state of Detroit in general, and it is surrounded by either run-down or vacant housing. This hotel was great because with the casino,...

First time we've ever stayed at the Motorcity Hotel and Casino. We've spent many nights in Las Vegas at various hotels, but we have never had a room/suite as beautiful and large as this one. There were always two security employees at a desk near the elevators to make sure only those with proper ID could proceed to the rooms.... More

This was a business trip into the greater Detroit area, and I had visited this property a few weeks back and was taking advantage of their "Play for an Hour and get a Free Room" promotion. While this seemed a bit too good to be true, it is as advertised, and I was not charged a cent for my promotional... More

This place is gross. Bottom line, the service is poor. Noticed a giant blonde hairball on the bathroom floor as soon as I walked in. My sheets had large makeup smudge right where my face lay (I don't wear makeup, I'm a guy). The toilet seat is loose and flops around like a cheap gas station. The clock in my... More

This hotel is in a very bad area and I think they know that because the hotel offers everything that you could possibly need so you don't need to leave. However, you are CHARGED big time! Trial size hair gel - $7, it's 50 cents at the store! Slice of Little Caesar's pizza, which was cold, $8 - I can't... More

Very nice comfy rooms! The bathtub and bathroom overall is a huge bonus! The spa is amazing and definitely worth the money! If your a hotel guest the $25 fee is waived. I stayed until the 9pm close and even ordered dinner and watched a movie on the spa lounge area. IT Was Simply A Great Way To Get Some... More
