This hotel was a lot of fun to stay at. Having a casino in your hotel helps. The nightlife was a lot of fun and the pool area was a great place to hang out. The rooms were really nice and the staff was very friendly. The bar off the casino could use additional servers on weekend nights.

This was our first trip to Arizona and we really enjoyed this hotel. From the moment we checked in to the moment we left, the service was good. We arrived in the morning around 10am and wanted to come to the hotel first to drop off our bags and see if a room upgrade was available. We had originally booked... More

Cons: Every single piece of linen had a stain on it. The towels and wash clothes all had reddish-brown to dark brown stains on them. The original set of sheets had a yellow stain on them & the set that they replaced them with had a black stain on them. The shower had grim & mold on the wall &... More

Pluses: (in random order) beautiful desert views, lobby stairs that change colour when you walk on them, lots of parking, friendly staff in all departments (pool maintenance guy quite passionate about his job & hotel), Blue Coyote restaurant with outside patio, Orange Sky restaurant with gorgeous rooftop views, well laid out rooms with spacious baths (tub fills super fast, don't...

Rooms were modern with flat screen TV, large bathroom, coffee maker with complimentary coffee and tea, mini fridge with complementary bottles of water (2). The resort also has complimentary valet parking and porter service. Recommend using the valet parking as it is quite a walk to the parking garage and parking lots. The resort also has three large swimming pools... More

DO NOT GAMBLE HERE!!! This casino is as tight as I've ever seen in the USA! Machines are all high max bets and designed to suck you dry fast! No 25 cent slots? Weird casino... When I saw they upgraded the exterior with fancy decorative flashing colored lights, I knew this was a bad sign...

Love the fact there is security to get to our rooms, sectioned off from the casino, less noise better privacy. Nice comfortable rooms, great bath, shower was good, bed comfy. The bar upstairs was fun and that restaurant was good. The coffee shop needs to be open longer. Plenty do and see for a weekend. GREAT shopping in the area.... More

Valet service is quick and bellmen available quickly...front desk is ready for your arrival but is a bit of a walk to rooms...so if you have just a little too much stuff for the room, make sure you get a bellman. Rooms are quiet and large..shutter windows treatments yet they keep sun out...pool area is lovely...nice golf course...food in coffee... More

From the moment we checked in we had a bad experience. It started with our room, the front desk, no hot water, WiFi is awful. The restaurants were okay and room service was great. Housekeeping was great. Sadly, we will not recommend to our friends or family.

We were staying in a small apartment in Scottsdale and we asked the owner to recommend somewhere for brunch. He suggested the Talking Stick Resort. I must admit that, when I realised that it was in a casino hotel, I thought of some of the Las Vegas buffets, which hadn't impressed me much. However, this one is so much better... More
