Tracy,

Fun is what it’s all about! (And bringing home some money is a nice bonus!)

Just an FYI, many of your favorite slots are available in our non-smoking areas near the main entrance of the casino.

“Great place!!!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Been going to Motorcity Casino since day 1. Other than Caesars Windsor, this is my favorite casino. So clean, great selection of slots, awesome food choices (buffet rocks!!!!).....and Lodge Diner is fantastic. Melissa (manager) is a sweet heart. And if you want exceptional service, ask for Martelle. He's wonderful. Hotel is gorgeous. Rooms are very opulent. Love the bathrooms!!!! Soaker tub, and a shower that you can have a party in.....not literally....lol. Views are of the surrounding burned out ghetto.....in the distance you can see the ambassador bridge. Views are the only downside, where at Windsor, you get the opulence PLUS a gorgeous view of the river. Slots have been more than generous to me, and so have comps/room offers. Thanks Motorcity!!!

“MY BIRTHDAY”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Didn't win any money (I didn't), but had an awesome time. This was the first casino we went too. The only negative about these casinos is that, they don't have complimentary beverages while playing. Still had fun !!!

“A Vacation right down the street!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I have stayed at the Motor City Casino Hotel many times. The comps at MC and customer service has been outstanding and are the best of the three casinos in Detroit. I don't gamble a lot but when I have went to the gambling floors, I have had a great time. There are live performances, great food and lots of TV's to watch sporting events. I had a great time just sitting around the bar and watching the NBA conference finals with lots of other fans. The Assembly Line buffet is GREAT! Here is the schedule:

Breakfast (Saturday & Sunday Only) $14 8am to 11am
Lunch Monday - Friday $23 11am to 3pm
Lunch Saturday & Sunday $23 Noon to 4pm
Dinner Sunday, Tuesday - Thursday $28 5pm to 10pm
Dinner Friday & Saturday $28 5pm to Midnight
Monday Seafood Buffet $39 4pm to 10pm

HAVE A GREAT TIME!

“Don't waste your time or $”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

People on two machines, can never get a waitress, bartender was rude, I had two machines crash numerous times and waited 15 min for someone to help only to have it crash again, went back to use my comps and this elderly man was on that same machine waiting because yes it crashed again. I wrote motorcity to update them on how things are being handled and never received a response smh my money won't be spent there any more time to try mgm and greektown
