I stayed here for a business conference and arrived at 8:00am. I did not expect my room to be ready since I know that check in is later in the day. To my surprise they had a room for me. So I went up and when I opened the door I took a step in to see a person's leg... More

I haven't had the pleasure of staying here yet, but it is a very nice place to visit. I work here and we put our all in our work, come check it out and play a game or two.

The casino is clean and has plenty of slot machines. Not much winning here the night we visited. The restaurants are lacking.

Coming from the front desk of Hilton properties, the ONLY hospitality found was with Manager Matt, and the coat check lady. THAT'S IT!!! Your front desk is a MESS sirs!

very clear and great customer service. Stayed there after attending a ball. Best thing we did because we didn't have to drive back and enjoy a good night sleep and great breakfast the next day.

A few years ago this was a better place. Now it is starting to show its wear and tear. Carpet in hallways and room are in desperate need of cleaning. I'm not a fan of casino hotels but they do a good job of screening guests prior to the hotel elevators. Rooms are a nice size but the hotel is... More

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
