The rooms here are relatively spacious, the beds are comfortable and the view is very nice. The highlight is the bathroom which is as luxurious as I would expect in a resort costing twice as much. There are food options for every budget with the best deals at the Black Fig right in the casino, live music in the Blue... More

We Love this property. We were in town for two nights for the Adel concert and had a great time. The room was Beautiful, clean, modern and elegant. We had a patio and loved it. There were numerous great restaurants to choose from and pool area was beautiful and had great service. I rate this property 5 Star!

The rooms are spacious and clean. The coffee shop and gift shop was priced 30-50% less than those of comparable hotels. The staff was friendly and helpful, but often unknowledgeable. Don't expect reasonable odds on video poker or video craps. These had payouts in the 90% range as opposed to the 98% we expect here in Las Vegas.

The hotel doesn't seem that great from the outside but the inside of the rooms are gorgeous. We loved the giant pool area and DJ. The casino isn't big and you can't play roulette or craps (video only) but that was okay with us. Overall great.

Large pool area with cabanas for rent, good food/drink options, showers and lots of lounge chairs. 3. Nice choice of restaurants and bars. 4. Very friendly staff in all restaurants and bars... More

We visited Talking Stick for a weekend getaway. The resort itself has everything for your enjoyment, such that you don't actually have to leave. There is the casino of course, 24 hour pools, restaurants, a club, lounge and bar. The housekeeping leaves a lot to be desired however. Our room had drinks from the previous occupants in the drawers. The... More

We went there for a few hours and won a few bucks. Many of the machines are overpriced compared to other casinos with the lowest bets higher. They do have a very large table game area that was loaded with customers so this must be a big draw for them. Our group found that first timers get very little for... More

Get the rooms for nothing on account of the casino giving them away to me. Always upgrade for about 25.00 for a room with a balcony. Beautiful place to stay! Have never had a bad experience here. Always carry your keycard you will be asked for it before you enter the hotel from the casino for your security. Have never... More

After a long day of travel, the hotel graciously allowed us to check in early and would’ve gladly paid to do so; the room is contemporary with lovely décor (loved the old Native American pictures) with all the conveniences (hair dryer, coffee maker, clothes iron, walk-in shower, bathtub, toiletries), comfortable bed, floor-to-ceiling windows, and excellent guest service. Hotel appears to... More
