At$380 for a room ? I thought I got free breakfast?? There were supposedly no rooms just the $340 rooms then they tax you to death so it cam our to almost $400 . We were on the concierge level but did not get any perks because we did not have enough points players club so we would have to pay another $75 per person to get the free happy hour and breakfast? So that was a bust!! Then the buffet is closed and so is the night club??? Then the only music was a one man band??? Then we had 2 drinks each our bill was $80 just drinks!!! We lost 200 in 10 minutes I think we won one hand!! So we decided to go up to the top to see the view and get a drink and it was closed to also due to big reserved parties!! We don't mind spending money to have fun. We were in bed at 10pm because there was nothing else to do!! we had no fun!! So unless you like to be ripped off don't go ,it is cheaper to just drive to Vegas!! And you have to wear a mask!!

We stayed in 2 rooms at Talking stick resort on Sept 26th and were kicked out before staying the whole stay we paid for. I have included the only receipts they have provided and of course you can see the charges on my card. The fine print of policy is included on one of those pages. I have stayed at this hotel many times and this time I was treated horribly and asked to leave, It was my daughters 21st birthday and they ruined the whole event. I paid just over $1000. I was never given the things that were left in my room and I have talked to the manager Clay several times to help him investigate. He and his stay have made up allegations and he even had my husband's name wrong in the incident. We were playing at a black jack table from 11:30pm to 1:30am and we decided to cash out we were going to our room and he whistled at me and said I was beautiful and we went to use the bathroom when I came out first the EMT/Security said I had to take him to his room I asked why and expressed we were already headed there when my Husband came out of the bathroom and asked what was going on. They told him he had to go upstairs and wouldn't tell him why all he wanted was an explanation why we were being harassed. I was told later that he had had too much to drink, what bothers me is that his blackjack dealer never had an issue nor cut him off and beverage security never cut him off and his waitress continued to serve him. I expressed this to the Hotel when they finally returned my calls yesterday and Clay said he had video of us talking to a female beverage security and that is false we were never cut off on the floor and they have video of us choosing to cash out and go to our room, it was not till we were on our way there that we were harassed. We had to pack our stuff up after demanding explanations from management at 4am. We intended to use their spa and get manis and pedis and facials the next morning and her birthday was ruined. The hotel manager's last words to me were "when you pay you pay" I want half of my stay on each room credited, I am not asking for anything unreasonable. I did not get to stay my full stay and I have spent a great deal of money at their hotel.

Disappointed. For all the rave I had heard about this resort, it was ok but certainly not a 4 star or true customer service resort. Extremely overpriced for lackluster rooms, pools that are good size but didn’t feel clean and lackluster customer service. We had a couple of good staff members for dining/bartenders but most were rather aloof not helpful. Be prepared for basically being tracked/watched and harassment as well. Absolutely bizarre and creepy. Overall it’s a mediocre resort with high end pricing.

After a full day of 18 holes of golf, an afternoon at the pool, dinner at the Coyote Cantina, dancing to live music and then playing table games, I made the critical mistake of nodding off in a chair that led to being escorted out without any reasonable discussion like a second class citizen. I was told I was being “cut off” even though I was not making any attempt to purchase a drink and hadn’t for several hours since dinner. When I explained I was a guest at the hotel and simply tired after a long day of activity, there wasn’t even an apology. Instead, I was forcibly escorted to my room and told I wasn’t allowed to leave for at least 8 hours. This was quite simply harassment of the worst kind. It would be one thing if there were genuine concern for my safety, but this was something different. This place really needs to rethink how to treat their guests. Not coming back.

Recently spent a very relaxing weekend not too far away from home and LOVED it! Casino was decent, I saw some big winners around me, but luck did not favor us that Saturday night. However Sunday morning was such a treat in the Spa. A small but mighty therapist named Stacy was able to work out a kink I swear I have had for a year. Thankfully I am local and can continue to return for an amazing spa experience in a place where I would not have expected! Thank you Stacy in the Spa!!
