If you want to smoke while you gamble, this is the place for you. If you don't, then you may want to stay elsewhere, as you have to walk through the smoke to get anywhere in the resort. In fairness, it wasn't a cloud hanging over the tables, but the smell was definitely noticeable the moment you walk in and... More

Usually I'm not crazy about brown-beige as a decorating motif for hotels, but in the desert southwest it seems to work. Rooms are well-appointed and spacious. Mini-fridge (without mini-bar) is welcome. Pool area is lovely. Hotel is a bit isolated, on a native American reservation. There is a casino, which is not as intrusive as they are in Las Vegas....

We celebrated our wedding anniversary on Friday the 26th. We had a total blast. Everyone on staff from check in to check out were friendly and helpful. We stayed on the club level, and the room was clean and the bed was so comfortable! We had an amazing dinner at Orange Sky. HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend, and be sure to... More

This is a good place for the money, 139.00 per month. I have a players card, and despite the fact the reservation person told me 89.00 when I got there, they would not honor that room rate, even though it was during the week. It's still a decent place, but they would do well to coordinate the front desk people... More

I was looking to have some fun & meet people. I booked a 1 night stay at Talking Stick. From the minute I checked in the service was excellent, room was clean, & the atmosphere was electric. Great variety of restaurants, helpful staff. An all around great time.

Made a reservation months ago and they screwed up the reservation. Would not let us check in without a reservation number - could not look it up by name. They were rude to the people in front of us checking in before us. Once they found the reservation (could only look it up by the # not the name unlike... More

We stayed at Talking Stick Resort for 5 nights on the13th floor with a view of the pool and golf courses. Initially, they put us in a room with a view of the parking lot and we were informed that the "other view" was another $15 a night, well worth it! The room was extremely clean and had plenty of...

Today I visited the Talking Stick Resort to have dinner at The Wandering Horse Buffet all you can eat crab on Friday. My 3 year old was with me. We attempted to wait for family in the lounge area near the casino sitting on the comfy sofas. We were promptly asked to leave saying we were "not allowed" to be... More

My girlfriends and I just finished a weekend at Talking Stick in Phoenix. We had a great time; I chose the concierge floor to save money on food and beverages and we made the most of it. We ate breakfast in the morning and went to happy hour in the afternoons. The food was good, and plentiful. Definitely appetizers but... More

After some business in Phoenix we stayed at the Talking Stick before leaving town. The pools were nice and they had several eating options. We had the sushi and it was very good. If you get there early its half price. The brunch in the morning is amazing and reasonable. The rooms were nicely done and modern. The staff was... More
