This was my first trip the MGM Grand. I am reviewing the casino only. MGM Grand.....I expected bright lights, a beautiful atmosphere, a grand gaming experience. Wrong. I could not have been more disappointed. The layout of the casino was horrible, the smoke was overwhelming, the atmosphere was not exciting at all and the property looked in need of renovation.....

My wife & I decided to go away for the weekend and thought we'd check out some Detroit attractions. I thought this hotel would be fun but I have to say it's definitely not worth the money. I got the king suite which had some cool features like automatic blinds and a TV in the living room, bedroom, and kitchen.... More

The MGM Grand Casino in MI is so much fun. Me and my husband won big there along with 6 of my family members. We had everyone chanting YOLO at the Craps table. The dealers are so nice and helpful. We received 2 free buffet tickets worth $45 each for drawing a crowd. The food was amazing did not taste... More

Sadly the casino seems to be a reflection of the times in the local area. The casino is run down, the machines dated and the smoking is just outrageous. There are also spots in the casino that are frigid as the air system blows and does not seem very well balanced. Who wants to freeze when they're losing money.

Of the three casinos in Detroit, this one has become my favorite. It closely resembles a Las Vegas Strip casino and if you are an MGM rewards member you will get points on your account. Two Wolfgang Puck restaurants plus a sports bar give good options for meals. There is also a buffet on site.

I have visited this casino at least 5 times this year. I like it, there is live entertainment. Plenty of lights, action and places to drink and eat. I haven't had a bad time yet. No, I didn't win every time.
