Very loud. Very crowded. Awful smoke so if you are not a smoker don't go because the air filtration system seems non existent. Others may enjoy it but it was claustrophobic and overwhelming for me.

They finally added two small non-smoking casino rooms full of slot machines only. Main smoke filled casino is average, the non smoking rooms seem cramped.

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.

The hotel and the food is great but don't go to Motor City Casino for the gambling. Total rip-off. They brag about all new machines, etc. I was in there on a weekend, and NO ONE won anything. No bells, no nothing. I left. Why...More

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.
