I enjoy traveling and certainly enjoy traveling to cities with casinos. While I didn't stay at the Talking Stick Resort, I did visit their casino on a couple occasions recently. The casino was nice and clean. The dealers were fun and they had all the table games I like to play (Blackjack, Three Card Poker and Let It Ride with... More

This place was absolutely amazing. Room was clean and spacious. The staff didn't seem to clean the hallways, as beer caps from first night were there when we left 5 nights later. first night was a bit loud from a bachelor party, but nothing crazy. It was great place, for gambling and eating. The restaurant downstairs with sushi was to... More

TALKING STICK is just not only a great place to gambling and lodging, It's a great place for friends and family to get together and spend a great evening. Dining superb, entertainment for everyone and even a cigar lounge that rivals the best of them. If staying overnight, the rooms are impeccably cozy and very quiet. Highly recommended!

I have been to a couple local Arizona casinos and they are nothing like Talking Stick. It is a lot more fun with a younger crowd. it is still smoky on the casino floor but all of the amenities make up for it.

Stayed here at the end of June for a conference. Had a double queen room. Overall, room was good. Couldn't give a 5 because of carpet stains and the bed slip at the foot of the bed was well worn. Minor maybe, but, they charge "resort" prices so rooms should be "resort" quality right? Bathroom was nice; shower was awesome;... More

My wife and I went here for a weekend get away. We got here later on a Friday evening. We checked in and had an Executive King room. The views were very nice! The outdoor balcony was nice for sitting and relaxing in the evening. The rooms were very light at night however. I like a dark room to sleep... More

Okay the positives 1st: this property is amazing. Incredible architectural design, multiple pools, a big enough casino but not too big, nice concert venue, decent dining options from the lower end to the higher end. Our room was very "sleek" and very comfortable. The valet staff was very friendly and welcoming. The spa and it's staff were AMAZING. Pool area... More

My husband and I just spent 3 nights at the Talking Stick Resort property. Nearly everything was quite enjoyable. The Valet staff was by far the most friendly and inviting, the 'check in clerk' seemed disinterested completely. We completely enjoyed our time and massage at the spa, that was a tip top experience. We had requested our room 'refresh' at... More

Was here for a conference and found everything to be great. The meeting spaces were good and the staff was helpful. The entire facility is very nice, but rooms were awesome. They were large with vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, separate tub and shower, large flat screen tv on a swivel mount. The sheets were high quality and soft,... More
