Was originally interested in staying at Talking Stick for one night, but at $300 a night and limited time to spend there, it just didn't seem worth the cost. I got a room at We-Ko-Pa through Kayak that made staying there half the cost, so I decided to take a chance (but didn't expect much). The resort exceeded my expectations! Beautifully appointed entrance and lobby; comfortable, clean and spacious rooms; and a very nice casino with blackjack, poker, craps, slots and electronic games. Best of all, casino was smoke-free, modern and very clean! Older crowd than you'll find at Talking Stick, and while there's a bar in the center of the casino, there's no "club" with entertainment like at the other casino, either. Pool looked smallish but nice (we didn't spend time there because of the poor weather). A great option if you want a "mellower" casino experience, but still a nice one!

Hotel's Favorite
This is my favorite Casino when coming to the Phoenix area. A little remote but 20min from Scottsdale area. This casino is spotless and smells great. You get an older crowd here unlike the younger set you can see at Talking Stick. The staff is nice, the bathrooms are beautiful. Great selections of games and the slots are not too tight. I always visit a few times when I come to Scottsdale. Voted #1 casino in the desert.

Hi Beth. Thank you for the great 5 star review. We appreicate you taking the time to tell others about our casino resort. Yes, we are a great escape - surrounded by mountians and desert landscape only a few miles away from the city. Our casino is 100% smoke free and best in the valley. Again, thank you for your support - and as a fellow Chicagoian, here at the casino, hope to see you back soon.

I travel a lot for work and since Covid, many hotles just don't care anymore. They don't offer their amenities and everything is closed. They even use the pandemic as an excuse to not clean the rooms unless requested. Everything I once appreciated about hotels just went away. Then there is the We-Ko-Pa Casino resort. They are everything a hotel should be and once was! I can't say enough good things about this place. Keavon at Embers was knowledgeable and professional, he helped me navigate the menu and taste a couple of wines before making a decision. When I was checking out I wanted to send my daughter a postcard but had no stamp and the blonde lady who worked the hotel lobby desk Friday morning went above and beyond giving me a stamp from her purse and even offering to mail my postcard.

Dinner for 6 at Embers and each person was completely satisfied with everything from the terrific service to the delicious food! Knocked it out of the park on all levels! Even Chef Brake came to our table to see how we were doing and if we needed anything else.

I've been staying here for over 10+ years when we do a road trip over Thanksgiving and Wekopa is our last stop from a long but fun 10 day trip. The hotel is a pretty basic set-up with the room in dire need of an upgrade. The 1990's are calling and want their polyster throw that is on the bed back. Chipped bathroom doors, stains on carpet, walls and the windows are dirty with soot. The management is so tightly wound of never ever offering any comps, waive resort fee's of any kind, even when they major fail on some many issues. They have no concept on 'Customer Service'. The nickel and diming of this resort is disgusting, so please, go elsewhere! There are SO many wonderful resorts in the Scottsdale area that care about you, the guest. The old adage of 'Don't bite the hand that feeds you' applies 100% to this money grubbing 3* motel. Tried to order an iced coffee an coffee and told by the staff at Ahnala that isn't allowed. Ice machine was out for about a week and had to schlep down to the third floor. Tried to order room service and the phone systems were out for about an hour. Couldn't order from my cell or hotel phone. When asked for a discount on my bill, they turned it around that it was MY fault. Go to other Casino's like Talking Stick or Gila River. FYI...only play the tables..the slot machines are so tight and there is literally no one at the cashier booth giving $$ away from the supposed winnings. They are taking all your money and treating you like crap to boot!

Beautiful casino resort located just outside of Scottsdale. The rooms and beds are extremely comfortable. The food was fantastic, especially the Ember restaurant. Lots of options for vegans! Casino is non-smoking which was appreciated. The pool area was clean but the pool bar was closed because we were "out of season". The guys loved the 2 golf courses. Went hiking in Adero Canyon which is very close. It was a great hike!

I have been in many casinos in my life time, Vegas, Laughlin, etc. the We-Ko_Pa experience is way above any where else I have ever stayed for many reasons. First and foremost it is a non-smoking casino and Hotel, which in itself makes it a very important plus for gambling and staying there. All employees, casino personal, dealers, bar servers, restaurant workers, all are exceptional, I have fun, everyone is so kind, and engaging. There are a huge variety of games, tables, slot machines, and the craps machine is the best, being able to throw the dice, and not have to worry about where your money is placed, what to bet, it makes so easy and user friendly. The food is exceptional, and the perks are very much appreciated and we utilize these for discounted and free rooms and food discounts. I will always stay and gamble here, I have no desire to go anywhere else, very highly recommend.

I appreciated the staff that took care of us. I have a friend that can barely walk, and they had one of their golf carts pick him up in the garage. They also gave us a room that was very near the elevators. I really appreciated their gestures to ensure that we were taken care of. Kudos for the wonderful staff at the hotel. Also, the rooms were very nice and clean.

The pillows were wonderful and having an extra blanket available in the room without having to ask....that was a nice find. A refrigerator was appreciated. I love having the Keurig coffee maker in the room. The room was amazingly clean and quiet. Blackout curtains were great for sleeping in. Definitely will return.
