Went there for the weekend to watch some baseball games, this is the 2nd time I've stayed there, valet service was great very quick upon arrival, check in was easy, took 5 minutes, very friendly staff. Rooms are great, lots of room, very clean, bathroom is massive. Easy to walk to everything, obviously it's in a sketchy area, but never... More

This was our first stay here. It was okay. The shower could use a new floor, it seemed like it was not very clean, probably just very used. The hallway was littered with yesterday's sheets and towels when we arrived. They were removed later. The mini snack bar was missing an item and I hope we do not get charged.... More

We have now stayed at this hotel on two occasions, each time for two nights for family weddings. All you will read about the location and the perceived safety of the location is true, however the staff are friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are large and comfortable. They have Starbucks coffee in the room which is a real plus... More

Based on the room and service I would love to give this review a four, but can't when I doubt I would ever stay again because of excessive noise. We stayed on a Friday evening and even though there is actually a note in the room asking to keep the noise down after 11 pm when in the hallways, the... More

Received a certificate for a free room for a night courtesy of the Detroit Red Wings (thank you!). Since we attended a wedding downtown, it seemed like a good time to use it. Staff was courteous and the parking was free. The room was large and very clean. Would have preferred a better city view, but beggars can't be choosers.... More

I have stayed here multiple times and I never have any complaints. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable.....the linens are soft and high quality. I put some lavender in the soaking tub and made my own little oasis. I will be back!

Recently my wife & I had the pleasure of spending a night at the Motor City Casino Hotel. We found the room extremely clean, large & very comfortable. The king sized bed was very comfortable & the linens were of a very good quality. My wife especially enjoyed the oversized tub (large enough for 2), the plush robes & slippers... More

We also had a free room offer and decided to take advantage of it after a Tigers game. We called twice to complain about screaming. At first we thought the noise was coming from the hall. We realized it was actually coming from the room next door. We called back downstairs, but the noise continued. We finally left at 3am.

I got suckered in buy a promotion. Even for a quote free room I don't think I would ever stay here again. service was simply a joke on so many levels my personal opinion there are two better casinos to stay at in Detroit.
