something to do

The casino is easily accessible. The machines tend to be older. The waitresses are not very friendly. The buffet is very tasty.

I play at least 2 times a week in this casino. They have great promo and I win most of the time in the slot machines. The only thing I don't like is win you win a jackpot it takes a long time for the service to come to give you the money. Also the cashier must have at least... More

Motor City has Valet and self parking. The self parking is best on the top level unless you don't mind driving around each level looking for a park. They have a great variety of new slot machines on the main floor and downstairs. They also have an area of slot machines for non-smokers located close to the main opening. If... More

Booked this hotel for a date night in Detroit, I reviewed the hotel separately. The casino was nice, I managed to win some money and that's never bad. The bad: This place does not have adequate ventilation, be prepared to reek of smoke! I am not a smoker, when I left my eyes were burning. I had no idea it... More

I really enjoy the MotorCity Casino. There is ample (free) parking in the parking structure. From the parking structure, the casino itself is easy to get to. There are always plenty of machines and tables to gamble at. There are several restaurants inside the casino as well as a gift shop. You can use "comps" to purchase your food and... More

Spent 2 nights here, location is secure and you're extremely close to some great restaurants and shopping in Corktown. The hotel complex is pretty massive, and the casino seemed to payout pretty well (at least for me). Hotel staff was very professional. The only issue encountered was that we were placed in an adjoining room, and the neighbors next door... More

I always have a great time here even if I'm losing or winning. The atmosphere is colorful and fun. The Assembly Line is the best buffet out of all the casinos in Michigan and the other restaurants are great also! You can use your comps at any of the restaurants or sweet shops. The Sound Board is a great place... More

What a great Poker room. Free food and drinks, lots of players, fun dealers and for a female from out of town, the guys are eagar to contribute to the pot. Next time you stop by, remember All In to win, is my motto. Thanks for a great Sunday afternoon and sending me home $$$$$.
