Stayed at the hotel for a conference. This was my first time at Talking Stick. I'm not a gambler and I hate cigarette smoke, so a casino/hotel is not my first choice of a place to stay. That being said, the cigarette smell was well controlled and the hotel is separate from the casino. The room itself was great. The... More

Recently visited Thief River Falls Seven Clans Casino and was pleasantly surprised. We just travelled from our stay at Shooting Star Casino which offers the WORST customer service ever experienced, so upon our arrival at Seven Clans we were pleased with a far more positive welcoming. The young lady at the front reception greeted us warmly and immediately I could... More

Although we live here in Phoenix, we have stayed here a number of times. We have never been disappointed with anything. The rooms are very large, modern, with a large bathroom with all the needed amenities. All the people are very helpful and courteous. Additionally, the food/drinks are all good (at all restaurants) and not expensive. Worth staying here even... More

We have stayed at Talking Stick Resort numerous times and love it. The rooms are high class at an affordable price, the different dining options are wonderful and the food is excellent. We recommend this resort to most of our out of town friends and family and many times we go to the resort for a special gathering with friends... More

I came to this resort on Thursday on a business trip, then flew my wife in on Friday for the weekend. It is a nice place. The only complaint is that there is smoking (which we aren't used to in CA) and the ventilation isn't as good as it is in Vegas. Checked in and found out I was given... More

We have stayed there twice. One for a corporate event and once for pleasure/concert. The facilities for the corporate side of things was very nice. Good set-up and good food. The hotel itself is also very nice. We had a regular room the first time and the Executive King the second time. Both rooms are fantastic. Well-appointed and spacious. Room... More

We had a great stay at the Talking Stick" and continue to visit the casino over and over again while we are in Phoenix. The rooms are lovely, the service was excellent and an overall great experience. Casinos are always smokey but this on not so bad.

My husband stayed at this location for a getaway from the kids moment and fell in love. We upgraded to a "Club King" which was awesome! With the Club King room you get to stay on a higher level and you get basically Breakfast and Dinner items.... We got to pick off the actual room service menu since we were... More

Ok, so it's not Vegas but with excellent rates, large well equipped rooms, 2 excellent golf courses, a casino and great weekend pool parties, what more could you want? Stayed here a few times now and every time the service is great. The hotel itself has plenty to do, although it's not immediately nearby to much else - but does... More
