Wonderful hotel. The room was large and the bed was extremely comfortable. Excellent shower. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There are a lot of choices for food. We only ate at one place and it was very good.

During my last stay with reservations, I checked in later at night than usual.. and my room with a king bed was not available. Rather than disappoint me with two double beds, they upgraded me to a better room, I had a higher floor, loved the view, the amenities in the bathroom.. d. tour spa products smell amazing minty fresh....

i enjoyed my stay at Motor City Hotel. the room was spacious and modern. Really nice. I had a spa package that included pink cadillac sugar scrub and express facial. the young lady who administered the scrub and facial was relatively new to the casino and with more experience I'm sure she will do just fine.

Stayed on 8/22 & 8/23 for the Eminem concert. Room was extremely dusty. Bathroom sink drain had mold build-up. Different colored hair all over the carpet. Headboard was dirty. Chewing gum along the bed boards. Room did not smell clean at all. Wait staff at the restaurants were very friendly and courteous. The casino dealers brought awesome life to the... More

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
