My husband and I were given Jay Leno tickets, and decided to stay at the resort for the evening. We checked into our room, check in was a no hassle experience, and went to our room on the 7th floor. Beautiful! Everything was clean and modern. Lovely desertscape view. Comfortable bed with crisp luxurious sheets. Could not hear neighbors, above... More

I had the opportunity to spend 3 nights at the Talking Stick Resort, and I have to tell you it was just incredible. I just can't say enough about the service, the rooms, the restaurant and on top of it all the casino is great for those who like to gamble. The machines really pay. If you are not a... More

Went there for a celebratory occasion and rented a suite for a Saturday night stay, while pricey it was a great room with a large room to host a party. Great balcony -though ours overlooked the parking garage. Request one that overlooks the pool. It was super busy in the casino and all the tables were full until 2am. Room... More

I love to stay at Talking Stick Resort. When I arrived the associate who checked me in was lovely and had a beautiful smile. She made me feel very welcome. The valet is always friendly and very efficient. The girl who works at the valet desk is wonderful. I love once you get past the casino they have this beautiful... More

Flew into Phoenix airport and the drive over to the hotel was about 30 minutes. The hotel entrance was nice and offered a lot of parking. The check in was quick. The walk from the check in desk to the rooms is quite far so if you have a lot of luggage tip a valet and have them take it... More

Rooms and beds are great, showers and bathrooms are awesome, food is great and there are inexpensive options to eat in, mid range eats as well as high end. Close to shopping and great golf. What else could you ask for?

My friend and I went there on the 13th to take in their supposed seafood bar. It is actually a Cajun spot, and the food was yummy, if you are into that sort of thing. Don't miss out on the collard greens! Do expect to be shell shocked by the prices! Afterward my friend took me on a tour of... More

Great place to see a concert. The acoustic sound design is fantastic. The place is clean and the parking is convenient. Also, the food is good because it offers different two buffet rooms. Children will like the pool area. The place is a winner. Nothing else could verbalize how much I enjoy this place.

I spent a few days here for a conference. The first thing I noticed walking in was the smell of cigarette smoke from the casino. This surprised me as I've noticed most casinos have high end ventilation systems that eliminate the scent. The rooms looked very nice and the beds were very comfortable, but the lighting was so dim in... More

Stayed here February 5 - 14, 2013. Booked through Hotwire. I wasn't too excited about having the casino on site due to the clientel it can draw but couldn't change after booking. That really wasn't a problem but the smoking was. You have to walk from one end of the casino to the other when you are coming and going... More
