I heard about the free parking at MotorCity Casino and decided to drop off my car before heading downtown. I popped into the Casino for a bit, mostly to scope out the restaurants. It's like every other casino, but especially devoid of natural light. It's...More

we are NEVER coming back here. The place smells, and is dirty. We stopped here to check it out, have not been for a while. Paying $7 for a beer is silly, I am tired of this.

Went here on a weeknight for a banquet. Very nice facility. Most of the food was good, although rolls were very dry. Staff was a little unorganized. I.e. we had wine glasses with a logo on them that were meant as souvenirs. Staff started collecting...More

The majority of the slot machines seem like they are from a decrepit old Las Vegas Casino. There are a few newer games, but the majority--and I did walk the entire perimeter--are old games. The fact that this casino is open to smoking already had...More

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

I am not sure about the shuttle but cabs always available, I would NOT recommend walking around outside of motor city casino. Not a good neighborhood. Inside your safe.
