The MotorCity Casino Hotel overall is just a good hotel. This was my first time staying at a casino hotel in Detroit and my first time staying at one in the past 5 years. There were many things that I liked and disliked, so I will list them below. The positive aspects: - The gym was excellent!!! Great equipment, space,... More

I bought tickets to a concert months ago. Along with purchasing the tickets I booked a hotel through Expedia. I apparently booked one hotel (Greektown casino) but then found a better deal through MotorCity. I apparently cancelled the reservation at Greektown, however, months later I thought that I still had a reservation because I kept the itinerary with the tickets.... More

I stayed at the Motorcity for a convention, and was very disappointed. The staff was very unfriendly, in fact they were rude and abrupt. I was not welcomed to the casino, I would say good morning or hello to the staff and was ignored, and at checkout there was 1 person working and he was down right rude. The food... More

Love Motor City Casino! Food is great- entertainment is fabulous. Rooms are exceptionally clean- showers are fantastic. Detroit has come along ways- it's headed in the right direction. I wish the non smoking area was bigger- different-however; it is still a great time!

Stayed here for opening weekend for the Tigers! Very friendly staff, great bar specials in the casino. Our room, along with hotel was very clean, but beds could've been a little more comfortable but still slept okay. The only down side is, that it's not in the greatest neighborhood, but taxis and uber is available and inexpensive to take you... More

I enjoyed the room I stayed in. However, I was very disappointed in the selection of food offered in the casino. Stay away from Pit Stop. Beef brisket is sliced beef. Nothing brisket about it. Bed was comfortable to sleep in. Which is a major plus. The tub in the bathroom was huge and the jets were a great addition.... More

A very vibrant and lively place to go, the Casino is lots of fun. The hotel is ok but paper thin walls! The neighbors in the room next to us had a baby that was very unhappy, then around 2AM, people walking down the halls yelling and screaming. But over all the room was nice and clean. I would stay...

My husband and I stayed here after an event in downtown. We stay in Detroit frequently and hadn't been to Motor City for some time. It had been 5 years since our last stay which at that time was quite enjoyable. Sadly this visit was not the same. We were given a room on the 6th floor. The room seemed... More

After a lengthy absence from Motorcity Casino (5 months) we decided to give it another chance. Our last visit was less than stellar, and I vowed to never return. Which was hard because MotorCity was always my FAVORITE in Detroit since the beginning. While I tried so hard to make MGM my new home, there was always something missing. So......against... More
