Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale is so much more than a casino (although the games can be fun....) The rooms are beautifully designed, as are the grounds in general. Staff is always kind and very helpful. Two things to be aware of: the beds and pillows are on the firm side, so if you're looking for a super-cushy bed, you... More

I attended a medical convention at this resort so I decided to try the hotel portion. I stayed on their Club Level which had the usual private lounge. Food was great and service equally great. Rooms on the top floor have amazing views of the Arizona desert. Easy, convenient and quick 15 minutes from PHX airport. The only bad impression... More

This is the first time I stayed at this Hotel Casino. Not bad, but not really impressed. The check in was super slow and not very friendly. I was booked in an Executive Suite, room on C2 level (Club Level). Room was nice , great view of mountains , but don't get confused. It is not really a suite, I... More

We loved our rooms and the pool at the hotel. However, the main reason we stayed here was because it was a casino as well. The casino was mediocre at best. Not a good variety of slots and the payouts were pretty weak. Like I said, hotel great...just don't come here for the casino.

Stayed at this resort for my birthday with my boyfriend and another couple. We were counting on a fun time by their pool on Saturday - which was exclusively being used for their Release pool party series. Then on Sunday when we tried to go before check out, it was closed from 8-11 to setup for another pool party. I... More

We've stayed at several resorts over the years in Scottsdale, but this place has a great energy you won't find anyplace else. You are in the heart of the action. If you are looking for something quiet this probably should'nt be your top choice. But if you like casinos and action, you will be pleased with the restaurants on site... More

Expansive Pool area perfect for cooling off - Rooms are up to date with rain shower. Casino - of course it is all a cost of entertainment - dont expect to win - lucky if you do. Had a band that was pretty good for party dancing.

We have stayed her a few times and always got the basic room so on our last visit we decided to upgrade, just stick with the normal room. They set the bar pretty high with those rooms the slight upgrade feels like nothing different.

The rooms were magnificent. the standard room felt like a suite. I can only imagine the actual suites. Also plenty of different dining options through out the resort. So you don't have to eat the same thing again and again. Also love music in the bar area was great. All Around enjoyed.
