“A very clean hotel! Modern and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

My sister and I decided to stay here in order to attend the Lions Game over Thanksgiving weekend. Some of the reviews mention it is in a "bad area" but who goes to a Casino/resort to walk around at night? We enjoyed a great secure hotel stay. I left my passport, my valuables and electronics in room and safe and everything was intact. This is the kind of place you feel you can trust. The gaming floor itself is pretty, attractive and not overly smokey. The slots are reasonable and it seems clean. Beverage service is also fast and plentiful. All people I encountered were extremely nice.

Room Tip: If you are coming from the Airport prepay your taxi ride ahead of time. They will set you up so you...

Thanks for sharing your experience at MotorCity Casino Hotel during such a special occasion (a Thanksgiving Day Lions win :-). We’re glad everything was to your liking…and thank you for noticing everything from a safe and well maintained gaming floor to a beautiful hotel to our beverage service. Those are all the elements of the perfect escape we strive to create. We hope to see you back soon…in fact, for your next visit, two words come to mind: Sound Board.

We booked a room to go with our theater tickets. The room had a great view. The room was very spacious and very clean. The bathtub was super deep and long. I floated during my bath! It had very nice bath products, robes and even slippers. The bed was comfortable with lots of pillows.

My wife and I went on a bus trip to the Motor City Casino in June and really enjoyed ourselves.She then started receiving in the mail various offers to return including a free room at the hotel.That sounded like a pretty good deal to us and it stated if we booked online we could receive some free slot play money also.Well ,trying to book online didn't work very well because it showed that all rooms were booked.Having worked management in the industry for many years with several different chains,i called the front desk and was informed that there was no vacancies,but if I called in the morning and spoke to a manager some one may have cancelled,so I called and talked to Steven who got us a beautiful room and was extremely helpful in everyway.When we arrived everyone was great ,beginning with the parking valet to our bellman extraordinaire Chad who was awesome in everyway,truly a gem.The room was beautiful and I would recommend it to anyone ,and with my wifes birthday coming up in December we plan on returning .Best of all we actually won at the machines,whats not to love about Motor City Hotel and Casino

Thanks for the review! It sounds like you joined Club Metro, so we’d like to extend a special “THANK YOU” to both you and your wife. We let Stephen know his help was appreciated and we hope to see you back here soon :-) Remember to check out the hotel packages on our website—next time, you two are looking for a romantic escape, be sure and grab dinner at Iridescence or a Couple’s massage at D.Tour Spa.

As a Brit travelling to America for the first time, I was unsure of what to expect from a Casino hotel! Thankfully it was a great experience, the room was big with comfy beds and a plush bathroom. Me and my travelling partner had no problem checking in and it was good to relax after a long day travelling from Toronto. The casino was one heck of an experience, full of a diverse range of people, many of which I had the pleasure to chat to and share in the heartache of watching the Tigers lose to the Redsox in one of the many bars in the casino. The on-site restaurants were great as well, plenty of choice and fairly good value too. Didn't get much chance to gamble as we were too busy enjoying the sights and sounds of Detroit but put a few dollars into the slot machines and had a good laugh. The live music during the weekends were great with various motown tribute acts on which added plenty of atmosphere to the evening.

The hotel is a mile or so away from downtown so if you don't have a car you will need to grab a cab, which are fairly cheap in Detroit.

Would find it difficult not to be able to recommend this hotel after such a great time during my stay in Detroit.

We’re happy to have been a part of your trip across the pond (even though it brought up some bad memories of the loss against the Red Sox!) Thanks for taking the time to tell others about your entire stay with us, it sounds like you tried almost everything we have to offer: Hotel room, food, Tigers game, live band at Chromatics Lounge. We hope you had a nice (if not, long) flight back!

This hotel exceeded my expectations for comfort and service. The rooms were very clean with updated and modern decor and fixtures. Everything that was needed was already in the room even robes and slippers. I will definately be staying here again especailly with the on going special rates hey offer. In my opinion this hotel and it's staff were slightly above average.

Room Tip: Hgher floors offer a great view of the city.

I surprised my girlfriend of 4 years to a one night stay at motor city casino in a suite and an awesome dinner at iridescence, which is located on the very top floor of the resort. First of all the hotel and room were great. Everything we could ever need was right there and easy to get or ask for. The accommodations were very nice with a cosy feeling throughout the room. My favorite part was that bathroom. Huge first of all with a great shower and bathtub perfect for a romantic night for a couple. In addition to the room Iridescence was absolutely amazing. The food and the setting was perfect, could not have asked for more. All and all great way to celebrate 4 years with the woman I love.

I was incredibly impressed with the service we received at MotorCity Hotel. The room was clean, tastefully decorated and comfortable. My fiancé and I are both wanting those pillows! The bath was spa-like complete with slippers and robes for the two of us. Service was impeccable, and we truly enjoyed complementary hors d'oeuvres prior to heading to our dinner reservations at Iridescence. We had a delightful dinner and gambled for a bit. Room service brought us a deliciously romantic dessert and we retired for the evening. In the morning we awoke to a newspaper and headed to the butlers pantry for a complimentary breakfast with fresh fruit. My only issue was the fridge is packed so full with goodies that we weren't able to put our leftovers from Iridescence in the fridge and went to waste. I would highly recommend staying at MotorCity if you live in the City or are just visiting. You never have to leave the hotel/casino if you don't want to. It's an "ahhhhh relax" kind of hotel!

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the room (and view)

The pleasure is all ours! Thanks for the awesome review, it sounds like you took advantage of everything we have to offer in order to create the perfect escape. We appreciate leftovers too, whenever we have some from Iridescence, they don’t usually make it to the morning :-). We've shared all the great feedback regarding the service you received with all the appropriate departments. Thanks again for your review.
