If I could give this place zero stars I would. When I arrived the only person who showed any signs of hospitality was the first valet I encountered. I asked him how much valet was and he told me it was free so I gave him $10 and he said he was going to keep my car close. When going... More

The rooms are impeccable! Very nice for a long stay. The staff are very professional and accommodating. Room service is on point. I've stayed here before during the summer season, and that's even a better time. The pool is an awesome atmosphere. Would stay again.

We usually love casino buffets, but this one was just ok. Their selection and quality was average. It was very clean and not very busy but the waitress were all very rude and when you asked for something, they didn't act like they understood English. The price seemed high for the quality of the food. I would not recommend.

My wife and I stayed here when she had a convention. The rooms are very nice, clean, and spacious. I'd highly recommend paying the extra $30 per night to have a balcony though. They are great to enjoy the morning weather. The food in the resort was very good and service was prompt. The only complaint I have about the... More

This hotel definitely has a Las Vegas feel to it. Out of all the casinos in the Phoenix area this one is my favorite. We stayed at this hotel in the summer and attended one of the pool parties. The buffet was your standard Las Vegas type buffets with crab legs and prime rib. Dance club was fun however drinks... More

My husband and I came to the Talking Stick Resort in May 2014 to see Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers for the first outdoor venue the resort had. It was pretty awesome! We loved the poolside setting to the place, as we could sit around the pool and watch the show. We ended up getting food during the show and... More

The one thing you will notice is that hotel room rates in Phoenix area in winter are over the top; for obvious reasons. Great weather. I was heading to phoenix for a day with a business colleague and after a lot of options zeroed in on TS. As is known the hotel is in the casino. They have free valet;... More

When I checked into the hotel with my wife, the front desk people were nasty and rude. The room was very dirty. A veru dursty hotel. Most people working there are extremely rude. You must stay away from this hotel. Avoid this hotel at all costs. The buffett has very bad food also and the cost is a total rip-off.

Stayed here on business for three nights and had a great time! The room was great, comfortable and quiet. The casino is small, but it has everything you could want. There are several really good restaurants on location as well. The hotel is also located close to shopping if interested. And there are tons of golf courses in the area.

This resort is quite beautiful. We have end room with beautiful covered patio overlooking golf course and mountain. Bathroom is beautiful and windows in room are floor to ceiling and take up two walls. Room is immaculate. Staff here goes out of their way to make your stay a great one. Nice restaurants and casino. It is a shame they... More
